How to Downgrade iPhone 5S to iOS 10.3.3

Method 1: Use FutureRestore

Step 1: Power your iPhone 5S off and boot it into DFU mode. Connect the phone to your Mac.

Step 2: Open Terminal on your Mac and run the following command:

./ipwndfu -p

Step 3: If your iPhone is now in ipwndfu, move on the next steps. Otherwise, repeat the steps above

Step 4: Now, continue to enter the command line below:


Step 5: Next, transfer IBSS and IBEC files into your iPhone by following these commands:

./irecovery -f iBSS.iphone6.RELEASE.im4p
./irecovery -f iBEC.iphone6.RELEASE.im4p

Step 6: You now need to create shsh OTA file. To do so, continue to type in the command:


Terminal will show up information like iPhone6,1 or iPhone6,2

Step 7: Copy all that information into this command:

./tsschecker -e ECID -s -o -i --buildid 14G60 -d iPhone6,2 (or 6,1) --apnonce code ApNonce

Step 8: Once you have successfully created SHSH blobs, it’s time to run Futurerestore

./futurerestore -t shsh -b baseband -p buldmenifest -s sep -m buildmenifest 5S_10.3.3 mod_by_MTVP.ipsw

Method 2: Use OTA Downgrader

Step 1: Download 1033-OTA-Downgrader from here or visit github here . Once done, extract it and you will see a folder named 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master

Step 2: Check your iPhone if it is iPhone6,1 or iPhone6,2 by plugging into iTunes, click on the Serial Number until the Model Identifier shows up. iPhone6,1 will be the iPhone 5s (GSM) while iPhone6,2 (Global) is the global

Step 3: Download the IPSW iPhone 5s 10.3.3 firmware and copy it into the folder of 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master

Step 4: Open Terminal on your Mac, navigate to 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master folder by running the following command:

cd / Users / synam135 / Downloads / 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master

/ Users / synam135 / Downloads / 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master is the path to the 1033-OTA-Downgrader-master folder that you have extracted.

The fastest way is to drag the 1033-OTA folder -Downgrader-master and drop into Terminal and hit Enter (return).

Step 5: Decentralize the .sh files by running the command

chmod + x * .sh

Step 6: Install the necessary packages (during the installation process if it required password, enter the password of your Mac

The result is the screenshot below.

Step 8: Connect your iPhone 5S to your Mac and put it into DFU Restore Mode

Step 9: Exploit errors by checkm8


Note: The process might probably fail several times, so you need to be patient and put the device into DFU mode and try again. Personally I have to put the device into DFU mode up to 22 times =))

Step 10: Restore your iPhone to iOS 10.3.3 with the command:


While running this command, the script will ask which device you are using? iPhone6,1 or iPhone6,2. type it into Terminal

The script will then ask if you want to save OTA SHSH or not. Simply press the N key and hit Enter.

Wait for Terminal to notify DONE! It means that you have finally downgrade your iPhone 5S to iOS 10.3.3 even when Apple stops signing this version. However, you should note that this method is for advanced users. If you do have knowledge about command lines, you should not try this. If you have any question, let’s know in the comment below.
