how to restore an ipod without updating-77

A jailbreak for i OS 11.0 to 11.1.2 was just recently released to the public.

With this, lots of people will want to make sure they remain on whichever i OS 11 version they are currently running. Once you jailbreak your device, it becomes much more difficult to safely restore it to factory settings without updating.

If you happen to have Find My i Phone setup on your device, you'll be able to use i Cloud to erase it and restore it, which will in turn erase its passcode.

It will also erase the contents of it, though, which means you'll lose photos and anything else you had stored on it unless you have an i Tunes or i Cloud backup.

You should always save SHSH2 blobs for every i OS version.

It is also worth mentioning that if you do not have SHSH2 blobs for i OS 11.1.2, you will not be able to use someone else’s, as these blobs are specific to each device.This does, unfortunately, mean you won’t be able to use it to downgrade i OS 11.2 or above to i OS 11.1.2 (at the moment).If you are currently running i OS 10 jailbroken, and want to update to i OS 11 to jailbreak, you can follow the guide linked here.You should see All Devices at the top of the window.Click that and choose the device you're locked out of. You'll now be able to restore from a backup if you have one, or set up your device as new.This is due to modifications that are made by jailbreak apps/tweaks that won’t be undone simply by using ‘Erase all content and settings’ in the settings app. Prometheus (AKA futurerestore) is a tool created by tihmstar which allows you to restore to unsigned i OS versions as long as you have SHSH2 blobs saved for them.
