    Is there any possible way to downgrade to a unsigned OS? Even if it is risky

    Not without jailbreaking.
    What do you mean?

    You have to jailbreak your iPhone in order to install unsigned versions of iOS. I am nothing close to an expert in the area but we have a subforum dedicated to the subject if you're interested.

    So there are a few different answers depending on device
    For example, iPhone 4 and below can be put on any iOS that you have device specific blobs for. (Same for ipad1/2?)
    I think you can bring the iPhone 5 to iOS 6 with Odysseus.
    Anything after the 5 though, specifically the phones with 64bit architectures, you cannot install any old versions, or unsigned, iOS

    Thank you for clarifying! I was hoping a jailbreaker would see this and respond.

    I have a iPhone 5 so I think I have a chance.

    What if I downgrade to iOS 6 that has no SHSH Blobs and then I upgrade to 9.0.2? Will that work?

    That will not.
    I skipped iOS 6 so I never paid that much attention to it, but what I've assimilated through other jailbreak research/obsession is that you can downgrade to iOS 6 only through some kind of special magic that the final OTA iOS 6 allows.
    But that would be where it ends. Blobs became irrelevant because Apple changed the method of checking whether an iOS can be installed.
    So it's the latest iOS 6 jailbreak, or what you have now.
    THEORETICALLY there is an iOS 9.2 and 9.3 jailbreak being released within a month / 2 months, but at this point it's a single guy talking, who hasn't been disproven yet take it with a grain of salt, I am assuming it is BS for now and will be pleasantly surprised if this dude turns out to be legit. (@enMTW)

    TL/DR I'm not sure, but I think not. Maybe a new jailbreak soon.
