How to Downgrade to iOS 12.1.2 beta or 12.1.1 beta 3 to Jailbreak SOON

Downgrade iOS 12.1.3 or iOS 12.1.4 Downgrade to iOS 12.1.2 beta or 12.1.1 beta 3 and Jailbreak Update – As the iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak approaches, we’re going to show you how to downgrade from iOS 12.1.3 or iOS 12.1.4 to a beta that should be supported by the jailbreak. How does this help? The jailbreak will only support up to iOS 12.1.2, the public version of which is no longer being signed by Apple. However thanks to some sleuths on the internet, we know that Apple is currently signing select betas of firmwares that fall within the supported umbrella of the next jailbreak. To improve your odds of being able to jailbreak, today we’ll show you how to downgrade to iOS 12.1.1 beta 3.

Important Update (02-09-19)

Apple has stopped singing iOS 12.1.2 beta, however the company is still signing iOS 12.1.1 beta 3! Hurry and downgrade iOS 12.1.4 or iOS 12.1.3 before it’s too late. 

Downgrade Prerequisites

It’s imperative to mention that downgrades are only possible if Apple is still signing the target firmware (being 12.1.1 beta 3). Because of a number of security checks iTunes performs when restoring a device, Apple has to give the “go ahead” on their remote servers before the downgrade initiates. In other words, this guide will expire and will no longer function once Apple stops signing the two aforementioned beta versions of 12.1.x; it’s only a matter of time.

Downgrading and your Data

Backup iCloud Downgrade

Note: not all data will remain on your device when going back to 12.1.x. This is a deterrent measure implemented by Apple to prevent people from downgrading. Anything that’s not saved in iCloud will be lost. We suggest enabling Messages in iCloud, iCloud Photo library, and other iCloud services before the downgrade process.

Downgrade iOS 12.1.3 / 12.1.4 to 12.1.1 beta

iOS 12 Jailbreak

Step 1. Download the 12.1.1 beta 3 IPSW and the latest version of iTunes from the download section listed below.

Note: After clicking the download, you must select the proper beta IPSW from the matrix. Look for the 12.1.1 beta 3 IPSW.

Step 2. Connect your iOS device to your computer via a USB cable. Launch iTunes and ensure it recognizes your device. If it doesn’t, you’ll need to establish a connection by tapping “Trust” on-device and “Continue” inside iTunes.

Step 3. Select the device section inside iTunes. Click “Check for Update” while holding the Shift key on Windows or the Option (alt) key on Mac. Select the iOS 12.1.x IPSW and click open. If you want the smoothest jailbreak however, simply hold down the same key and click “Restore” instead (just note if you choose this “Restore” option all data will be wiped).

Step 4. Sit back and let the process complete. iTunes will perform a number of verifications and checks with Apple’s servers. Once finished, you’ll need to follow the on-device prompts to setup your device.

Congratulations, the iOS 12.1.3 – iOS 12.1.4 downgrade iOS 12.1.1 beta process is complete! You’re now ready for an iOS 12 jailbreak, should one be released. Thank you for reading and stay tuned for more jailbreak updates. Follow us on social to stay in the loop (Twitter / Facebook).

  6. When I try and downgrade from 12.1.4 to 12.1.1 b3 on a 6s, the restore never happens. It waits for the phone and then itunes gives error 4005. Any help?

  7. Okay, i have complicated problem , i have IPAD AIR “cellualar&wifi” model A1475

    I was jb on ios 9.2.3 4 years ago and never updated while all apps became incompatible
    So i decided to update at the date ios 12.1.4 was released ,
    Next day i discovered that ios may be never jailbroken so i downgraded to the only signed versio i have found on IOS 12.1.3
    I have seen alot of youtube videos of yours and alot says that they have managed to downgrade , i even couldn’t find that version ios 12.1.1 beta 3 signed or unsigned , however every one says it is still signed “the last was hours ago”
    I found it here in iphonewiki link you provided
    I walked on the steps and itunes give me ERROR 11 which means it’s not signed probably

    Any solution here ?

    1. It’s still signed. I’ve upgraded an iphone X, ipad Air2 and downgraded a 6s on 12.1.4 ALL to ios 12.1.1 b3 within the last 12hrs. If you have access to a PC, I used the “How To Jailbreak IOS 12.1.4 Downgrade IOS 12.1.1 With 3Utools” from youtube. Worked around my previous iTunes error issues and flashed 12.1.1 b3 right on to each device!

      1. My all sincere thanks for you, I managed to install 12.1.1 this way, but unfortunately I couldn’t jb using unc0ver from tweakbox , it gives error on “2/38” then I restart , is works perfectly until JAILBROKEN status appear, however CYDIA is not installed! And I’ve noticed that it FINISHES jailbreaking at 21/38 step.

        1. You may just need to make sure you’re in Airplane mode and / or go into Uncover settings and tick Reload System Daemons. I have to run Uncover a few times before it’s successful.

  8. 12.1.1 beta 3 is still working .. downgraded to 12.1.1 beta 3 like an hour ago .. but now everytime i m getting this pop up saying a new ios update is available .. how to stop that .. plz share the steps to do so .. is it possible through tvOS profile ..plz tell me how to use that

    1. If you watch his videos you would know that 12.1.1 b3 is always going to have that pop up when unlocking. you can ask a jailbreak developer to make something that will block up but other than that there isnt any quick fix sir!

  9. When on iOS 12.1.1 beta 3, I am constantly getting a notification about updating. How can I stop this notification because it is really annoying, but I would like to jailbreak.

    1. Download the tvOS beta profile here: (bottom of the page)

  10. Hey Tony how are you , i’m running ios 12.0.1 on iphone 6 do i have to upgrade to ios 12.1.1 beta 3 as it being singed

    1. Nope, just save your blobs on 12.1.1 beta 3 🙂

      use the site listed here:

      1. Le message qui s’affiche lors du déverrouillage de l’iphone:

  11. Can i “restore” the iphone but also still restore the data I had from my older back up. I kinda dont want all my things erased?

  12. ios 12.1.1 beta 3 doesn’t seem to work either. Can you give me a link to where you would find it? I might be in the wrong place

      1. 12.1.4 To 12.1.2 / 12.1.3 beta 3, both are not working. I tried on 05/15/2019 on iPhoneX. :(. Any advice to downgrade or jailbreak 12.1.4 ?

  13. Wait.. I think it actually works! if you run into problems try restoring to iOS 12.1.3 first and then try updating to 2.1.1 beta 3 😀 it’s updating as we speak! 😀

  14. Yea I just tried it too, getting error 3600 🙁 I just tried downloading iOS 12.1.3 and updating with iTunes and it works with that one..

    1. That’s because Apple just stopped signing 12.1.2 beta yesterday. The article has been updated to reflect that. Please try iOS 12.1.1 beta 3.
