How iDeviceReRestore Downgrade Tool Works
iDeviceReRestore is a tool based on iDeviceRestore downgrade utility. It utilizes the Re-Restore bug found in iOS operating system.
The Re-Restore bug lets you go back to unsigned iOS 9.x firmware provided you have saved SHSH blobs for it.
Here’s a tweet by alitek123 that confirms this.

The most important feature of this tool is that you can downgrade to jailbreak-able iOS 9 firmware. The best part is – you DO NOT need a jailbreak to use this tool.
Why is iDeviceReRestore Important?
Simply put, if you have a 32-bit iOS device on iOS 10 and have saved your iOS 9 Blobs, you can downgrade iOS 10 to iOS 9. However, if you haven’t saved your SHSH blobs, this tool will not work for you.
This tool is absolutely indispensable for those stuck on iOS 10 firmware. iOS 10 does not have a jailbreak for 32-bit devices as of yet.
Chances are slim to none that it will ever get one. So this is your best chance to jailbreak your device.
Here’s how it works –
- Downgrade iOS 10.x to iOS 9 or upgrade to iOS 9 from older firmware.
- Use Home Depot to jailbreak iOS 9.1-9.3.4 firmware.
- Enjoy your jailbroken device.
Here’s a video demonstration of this downgrade tool. In this video, hacker DjSn0wfall downgrades iOS 10.3 to iOS 9.
Remember, this tool requires Erase or Update OTA SHSH blobs for iOS 9.x. Currently, the support for Update Blobs is in beta stage.
