    I'm not sure if this post should go in the iOS or iPhone forum but here's my problem:

    I have a friend at work who was given an iPhone 5 with iOS 7 on it. Apparently it's stuck at the activation lock screen. He asked me for help and asked if I could downgrade it to iOS 6. I told him that it might not be possible because Apple has stopped signing <iOS7 firmwares. I looked up on Google on how to go about the procedure. Apparently, if I would like to do the process, I need SHSH blobs.

    Is there a way for me to get them or is there a way for me to downgrade my friend's iPhone 5 back to iOS 6 another way? Possibly DFU mode?

    All help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. Though I do not condone my friend trying to activate an activation locked iPhone, I would just like to help him.

    No. Otherwise the activation lock would be useless. You can't use SHSH blobs for another device.

    No. He's stuck with iOS 7

    You're very welcome, sir...

    To the contrary, you are indeed condoning his actions by seeking help on the matter on his behalf.

    SHSH blobs are device specific so you cannot get one from someone else. And Apple is no longer signing iOS 6, so your friend is stuck. Sorry.
