    I followed the above, but you can not load 10.3.2. I had it settle in with 10.3.3


    But yes YOU must go to Beta 1 from Beta 2.
    I must just not have the luck, because I downloaded the 10.3.3 IPSW and directed the restore to it and it still did not.

    Do you have an Apple Watch? Did you lose the connection with iOS 11? If so, were you able to reconnect with iOS 10?

    I can not use Apple watch until a stable version comes out to use. As the Watch OS can't be downgraded but the current version it dies in 5-6 hours anyways.

    You need to downgrade to 11 iOS beta 1, then 10.3.3

    I still can’t believe so many people are only getting a few hours of battery with watchOS 4. No it’s not great, but I still get 10 hours. I wonder what’s causing it. Secondly, dev beta 2 update 1 was supposed to fix the downgrade issue. Were you have issues downgrading on a 7/7 Plus?

    7 Plus. I was able to downgrade before the release of Beta 2 Update 2. So I can not confirm.

    I am almost to the point of wondering if I should try to make a trip to Apple and see if they somehow have some magic to install 10.3.3. No amount of downgrades, non-DFU/DFU mode, have been successful for me to get back to a stable 10.3.x release. I am now on iOS 11 without a connection to the watch and do not know if it is even worth it to reset the watch given issues with reconnecting with iOS 11.

    I typically take my Watch off the charger around 6:15 A.M. and put it back on the charger around 10 PM with more than enough battery power left to make it to dawn, if need be.

    Apple posted restore images for 10.3.3 and I am really tempted to give it one more shot and just see what happens. I basically have a non-communicating watch and from other forums I have read, there is little hope in a re-connection with the current build of iOS 11

    It appears Apple released an update to Beta 2 which might address the downgrade issues. I am not able to test it now, but might be tempted once I get home.

    Just curious for anyone who might have been in the same situation:
    I was able to put iOS 11 B2 on last night and restored from a backup (iOS 10) to have my content back. I cannot get my watch to re-pair unless I reset it. Has anyone been able to downgrade and then re-pair the watch, WITHOUT A RESET and have activity data sync back up?
    No such luck here..... I had to reset.

    toneofark, are you on iOS 11 or 10 right now? If you are on 11, were you able to reset the watch AND repair it with the current build?

    Thanks

    I DFU downgraded as follows:

    Reinstall Beta 2 -> then Beta 1 -> finally 10.3.2, no problems.

    Some need to go:
    Reinstall Beta 2 -> Beta 1 -> 10.3.3 Beta 4 -> 10.3.2

    I'm sticking with 10.3.2. It gets better wife approval as my daily driver ("That's what you get for effing with your phone!").
    Thanks for your input. And I would do the same

    Cheers

    But yes YOU must go to Beta 1 from Beta 2.
    Can you clarify some things for me?

    I have 10.3.3 on my iPhone), which was listed as a beta version. (14G5053a)

    If I upgrade to 11 public beta, and want to go back to iOS 10, I have no problem doing it via DFU, as I've done before. But presumably it will revert back to 10.3.2 (?), and I can't reinstall a backup on iTunes from 10.3.3 to a fresh install of 10.3.2.

    The last time I did this was when the newest public beta was 10.3.3, so no problem, because the 10.3.3 beta was available. But now that the beta program gives you the 11.x public beta, there may not be a way to upgrade from 10.3.2 to 10.3.3, rather, only to 11.x public beta.

    And I don't know what you mean by this: "But yes YOU must go to Beta 1 from Beta 2"

    Are my assumptions incorrect?

    Thanks.

    I am not sure if the recent beta 2 update - update fixes this, but YOU can not downgrade from Beta 2 to 10.x

    You have to go to Beta 1, which can be found online if you look for it.

    Load that in DFU. once installed. then you can load 10.3.2 or you can find 10.3.3 which can be found online if you look for it.

    Again, some of you might have had that luck, but so far, that path has not worked for me. I had Beta 1 installed and tried to downgrade to 10.3.x and nothing I did ever worked. I am running 11 now because of this.

    Plug in via lightning connector. Power + home, release power button, continue home button. iTunes pops up about being in recovery mode. That is DFU mode, correct?

    I think it's the reverse. Hold power and home (or volume down on iPhone 7) 10 seconds, then release Home or Volume down, and then you're in DFU. Screen will be dark.

    I'm back on 10 now, but I was able to reset and pair the watch when running 11.

    I downgraded from 11 to 10.3.3 successfully. I'm trying to restore from the backup I made. When I select the backup I want to restore, what password is it asking for? I've tried every password I've ever used and it keep saying it's wrong.

    This happened to me last night. Downgrade to 10.3.3 restore, and then from there downgrade to 10.3.2. I'm back on iOS 10.3.2 now

    To get 10.3.3 restore IPSW, go to:

    https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/iosimagerestore


    To get 10.3.2 restore IPSW, just go to https://IPSW.me

    Likely the password for the encrypted backup in iTunes. This was set when you had iTunes do a full / encrypted backup.

    Were you on the Public Beta or the developer profile? I am getting more and more tempted as there are a number of issues with this developer 2/public beta release.

    I was on the public beta (beta 2). I have a friend who has the developer profile and iOS 11 on beta 1, and he has no issues with it. Maybe it's just an issue with beta 2?
