A guide fully covering the process of using Futurerestore to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to an unsigned iOS firmware.

Futurerestore Guide

Futurerestore is a tool that allows users to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore their iOS device to an unsigned firmware through the use of SHSH2 blobs. This guide will teach you how to use Futurerestore in order to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to an unsigned firmware.

Before continuing, keep in mind that this guide is based off of this one, and contains information that can change your device's behavior or even damage it. With that in mind, please read the guide fully, as no one but YOU will be held responsible for any damage caused to your device.

Notes and Hints

Throughout the entirety of this guide, keep in mind that:

  • iOS 13.1.3's SEP and Baseband are NOT compatible with iOS 12.x for all devices. This means that you're NOT able to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore A10-A12X devices back to iOS 12.x. Attempting to use an incompatible SEP and Baseband will cause Futurerestore to fail.
  • iOS 12.4.2's SEP and Baseband are fully compatible with iOS 12.2+ for A7-A9 devices. This means that you're able to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to iOS 12.2 through iOS 12.4 without experiencing the "fortnight bug", a bug that causes your device to stop working correctly after 2 weeks prior to using Futurerestore.
  • A7-A8X devices are forever downgradable as long as you have a jailbreak with saved blobs, or nonce collisions.
  • It's a good practice to put anything you need in a folder named futurerestore, which should be created on your desktop as you'll refer to this folder very often.
  • If you're a Windows user, make sure iTunes and its drivers are correctly installed from Apple's website. This is critial for you as you want to avoid having the Microsoft version of iTunes installed.
  • Avoid having a 32-bit system, as it's likely that Futurerestore will not work on said systems.
  • If you're planning to restore your device using a backup (after using Futurerestore), make sure to unjailbreak your device before creating a backup by running the "Restore RootFS" option on modern jailbreaks, or using a tool like Succession. This is to ensure that nothing messes up your device during the setup process after using Futurerestore.

Preparation

To upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore your device using Futurerestore, you'll need a few things, such as:

  • Futurerestore's latest release (from s0uthwest's fork)
  • Your SHSH2 blobs from either TSSSaver or shsh.host for the version you're upgrading, downgrading, or re-restoring to
  • An IPSW from ipsw.me that contains the SEP and Baseband that is compatible with the version you're trying to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to
  • (Optional) The specific SEP, Baseband and BuildManifest from the IPSW that are compatible with the version you're trying to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to

If you're unsure as to which SHSH2 blob you should use, use the one inside the noapnonce folder in TSSSaver or shsh.host. If that blob doesn't work when using Futurerestore, use blobs with an specific APNonce.

Finding your SEP and Baseband

This step is optional , and you don't have to do this unless you're using the "Manually specifying SEP and Baseband" method in order to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore your device

In order to extract the SEP, Baseband, and BuildManifest from the IPSW you downloaded, use r/Jailbreak's Telegram Bot to find the specific names for these files as they are different through every iOS version.

You can run /sepbb when using the bot in order to find the correct SEP and Baseband files for your device.

When you have these file names, use extract.me in order to extract your SEP, Baseband and the BuildManifest.plist file (located near the bottom) from the IPSW you downloaded and put them inside your futurerestore folder.

Finding your Nonce Generator

SHSH2 blobs are a critial component when using Futurerestore, as they contain an 16-character string, or a nonce generator that will essensially authenticate or allow you to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore your iOS device to an unsigned firmware.

If you're using blobs that were inside your noapnonce folder, you can find your nonce generator by:

  1. Opening your SHSH2 blob from TSSSaver or shsh.host with any kind of text editor.
  2. (On Windows) Press Ctrl + F, or (On macOS) Press Command + F, then search for the word "generator".

Next to, or underneath the word "generator", you'll find your nonce generator. If you didn't find your nonce generator, it means that you're using blobs with a specfic APNonce.

These blobs do have a nonce generator, however, it isn't within the blob itself. In order to find your nonce generator for these types of blobs, check the dropdown menus below.

Devices with an A9 chip and below

Try copying the provided APNonce, hit Ctrl + F or Command + F and see if it matches with the name of your blob.

Devices with an A10 chip and above

Try copying the provided APNonce, hit Ctrl + F or Command + F and see if it matches with the name of your blob.

Once you have your nonce generator for your blob, create a text docmuent inside your futurerestore and save it in said document. You'll use this string later.

Setting your Nonce Generator

Your device's NVRAM already contains a nonce generator, however, that needs to change, otherwise the restoration process will fail since the nonce generator of your device needs to match with your SHSH2 blob.

You can use a modern jailbreak tool, such as unc0ver or Chimera, in order to set your nonce generator to your device running a supported firmware.

In order to set your nonce generator:

  1. Open your modern jailbreak app.
  2. Find a text field with the words "generator".
  3. Within that region, type in your string that you saved from your SHSH2 blob.
  4. Hit "Done", then hit "Jailbreak".

This should change the nonce generator on your device's NVRAM, and you're now ready to use Futurerestore. Note that if you turn off your device, or it powers off for any reason, you will need to set your nonce generator again.

Upgrading, downgrading, or re-restoring

You're finally ready to upgrade, dowgrade, or re-restore using Futurerestore. However, before you begin, note that:

  • Failing to disable "Find my iPhone/iPad/iPod" and/or having NO PLS Recovery installed can cause Futurerestore to not upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore your device to an unsigned firmware.
  • If your device is put on "Recovery Mode", do not panic. This is entirely normal.
  • If you recieve any pop-up from iTunes attempting to update/restore your device, ignore them and close iTunes.

There are 2 ways you can use Futurerestore in order to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore your device to an unsigned firmware. This guide will explain both.

Automatic SEP and Baseband

This method is used when the latest iOS version contains an SEP and Baseband that is fully compatible with the version you're trying to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to. This method is consider to be the most common, but can fail if the requirements are not met.

In order to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore using this method:

  1. Open Command Prompt/Terminal.
  2. Drag Futurerestore from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal, then type -t.
  3. Drag your SHSH2 blob from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.
  4. Type --latest-sep --latest-baseband, then drag your IPSW from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.

In the end, your result should look something like this:

$ futurerestore -t [Your SHSH blob] --latest-sep --latest-baseband [IPSW]

For iPods and Wifi-Only iPads, do not specify a baseband:

$ futurerestore -t [Your SHSH blob] --latest-sep --no-baseband [IPSW]

Once you are sure that you have the right command, hit Enter and the process should begin.

Manually specifying SEP and Baseband

This method is used when the latest iOS version contains an SEP and Baseband that is not compatible with the version you're trying to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore to.

In order to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore using this method:

  1. Open Command Prompt/Terminal.
  2. Drag Futurerestore onto your terminal from your futurerestore folder, then type -t.
  3. Drag your SHSH2 blob from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.
  4. Type -s, then drag your SEP from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.
  5. Type -b, then drag your Baseband from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.
  6. Type -p, then drag your Buildmanifest.plist file from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.
  7. Type -m, drag your Buildmanifest.plist file (again), then drag your IPSW from your futurerestore folder onto your terminal.

In the end, your result should look something like this:

$ futurerestore -t [Your SHSH blob] -s [SEP] -b [Baseband] -p [BuildmManifest] -m [BuildManifest] [IPSW]

For iPods and Wifi-Only iPads, do not specify a baseband:

$ futurerestore -t [Your SHSH blob] -s [SEP] --no-baseband -p [BuildmManifest] -m [BuildManifest] [IPSW]

Once you are sure that you have the right command, hit Enter and the process should begin.

If you run into any issues or errors when using Futurerestore, please refer to this, which includes documentation of the most common errors you can encouter when using Futurerestore and how to fix them.

Additionally, you can check out this video in case you want a visual for this guide. Do note that the video focuses on downgrading an A12 device, however the methods used are relatively the same as the ones mentioned here.

I suggest you make a device already jailbroken/jailbreakable part of the requirements, otherwise one may think you can go ahead with the tutorial until the step when you need to specify the nonce. With a new exploit around the corner and since any A12+ device currently on iOS 12 would first need to update to stock iOS 13 first in order to then downgrade to a jailbreakable iOS 13 version, people might think that’s okay only to later realise they’re now stuck because they can’t run unc0ver.

@cre8tonsing what do you not understand in:
"iOS 13.1.3's SEP and Baseband are NOT compatible with iOS 12.x for all devices. This means that you're NOT able to upgrade, downgrade, or re-restore A10-A12X devices back to iOS 12.x. Attempting to use an incompatible SEP and Baseband will cause Futurerestore to fail."

SEP is an extra bit of crypted information that Apple injects at the time of downgrading, so they always serve the SEP that corresponds to the latest available firmware only. The SEP can be backward compatible, but only to a certain extent. That's why it's important to know if the currently served SEP is compatible with the firmware you're trying to downgrade to. As of writing this tutorial, it was 13.1.3. Now it's 13.3.1, and there is no compatibility with iOS 12 firmwares. You can upgrade from them, but not to them anymore.

Sorry for not updating this any further. I've had the intentions and I don't want to just leave this guide like the other Futurerestore guides out there. The problem with Futurerestore (currently; not really an issue as you'll read) is that s0uthwest's fork is outdated, and is the only one that was ever compiled with Windows support. This guide focuses for all systems, including Windows.

This is a problem for me as I'm not sure what to say towards any user that uses this guide. Telling them to switch their operating system is ideal, but this guide also targets beginners. Compiling Futurerestore for Windows should be done natively (as in, it should be part of the Releases tab of tihmstar's repository, which is the most recent version), and I'm not sure how compiling it for Windows works either.

As for the suggestions I've received, they will be implemented once the guide receives another update. There are a few major changes I already have planned, but haven't been done because of the "issue" explained previously. I hope you guys understand. If you have any issues, please leave them here (however, don't add massive blocks of logs. Use pastebin for that or something lol)

Yes, but no. Yes, you're able to upgrade from 13.2.3 to 13.3 using iOS 13.3.1's SEP and Baseband. However, you run the risk of losing Face-ID functionality, as iOS 13.3.1's SEP breaks Face-ID for anything above A11 (your device is A12X). I would recommend staying on your firmware as you have a working device and unc0ver already works on anything <iOS 13.3, but up to you if you decide to restore.

If you are restoring, make sure to identify your device for baseband purposes. If you have a Wifi-Only iPad, you won't need to specify a baseband. Otherwise, please do or you might lose connectivity functions.

@LacyKenzie Perhaps? I wouldn't know as I only have an A11 device. I would assume that it would not, as you're upgrading, rather than downgrading, but I do encourage to not attempt this. You can do it on your own will, and if everything goes alright, please report back. This is actually another major issue for me, as I base most information about SEP/Baseband compatibility through other sources, rather than me testing it out on my own.

  1. Question
    Hi i have Apple TV 4 tvOs 10.2.2. and I want to go to tvOS 12.1. bloobs i have saved. True, Apple TV 4 is an A8 and I can downgrade
    A7-A8X devices are forever downgradable as long as you have a jailbreak with saved blobs, or nonce collision

I understand it well, if I have stored blobs so men any upgrade, downgrade and rrstore between tVOS from 10.2.2 to 13.3?

2.Question
Apple TV tvOS futurerestore to iOS 13 whit blobs HELP
Hi, I need help. I need to do futurerstore Apple TV 4 tvOS 10.2 I have Jailbreak and I need to get to tvOS 13. bkobsI have stored just do not know what to use nonce set when I have 0x1111111111111111 and I do not know what Futurerestore tool used. Driive I have already done futurerestore on tvOS 11. I have a problem how to set a nonce set when I have 0x1111111111111111 Thank you very much for your help.thank you very much

@ABABREPO Not sure what you're request is. If you're asking about A7-A8 devices being forever downgradable, that is true. This is because you can use iOS 12.4.6's SEP and Baseband. Are you trying to downgrade an Apple TV 4? This guide will likely not help you as I'm not sure if the statement about A7-A8 devices applies to all devices. I only know it works for iPhones that don't support iOS 13 (e.i iPods, iPhone 5s)

So I've got an ipad Air2 (A8x) and want to move it to 13.3, which is no longer signed. Is this possible using the SEP from 12.4.6? And which 12.4.6, from which device (5s, 6, probably not Air1)? Or is the iPad Air2 not forever downgradeable? I assume that TheRealKeto knows something I don't, since the statement "A7-A8X devices are forever downgradable" implies strongly that it includes the Air2, since that's the only device with the A8x.

@gawtDamn A7-A8X devices do not support iOS 13 in any way, shape, or form. What the guide refers to when saying that they are fully downgradable is that you can go back to previous versions of iOS that the device originally supported, as long as the currently signed version for that specific device has a baseband that is compatible with the version you're downgrading back to (e.i downgrading from iOS 12.4.1 to iOS 12.4 using iOS 12.4.7's SEP and Baseband)

@LorenzoAlb2003 Sorry for the late response; No, SEP from 2 different iterations of iOS (in this case, iOS 13 and iOS 14) can't be compatible. Most times, SEP changes with each iteration, and SEP compatibility is only found between later versions of iOS, from one iteration only (e.g iOS 13.7 SEP being compatible with some iOS version, most notably iOS 13.4+)

Fortunately there is a SEP vulnerability until A10 that can be used to downgrade. I’m not sure if iPhone 6s is compatible, but mostly yes. The vulnerability is needed because iOS 14 SEP is not compatible with iOS 13 one. The problem is that you simply need jailbreak to use your blobs with Futurerestore.

@inix Unfortunetly, no. Downgrading an A8 device all the way to iOS 10.x is not possible with Futurerestore. I'm currently unaware of SEP/Baseband compatibility from other versions, so downgrading with Futurerestore is somewhat in the dark for other versions as well. I suggest checking out a few other sources to confirm this, such as r/jailbreak or their Discord server.

I suggest checking out a few other sources to confirm this, such as r/jailbreak or their Discord server.

Thanks

@snos2 I don't think this is possible, primarily due to SEP compatibility. You can try updating your device through OTA to iOS 14.3, which is jailbreakable with Taurine. There's more information on two specific servers, r/jailbreaks' and Sileo's Discord server. Note that this will only work up until the 26th of April of this year (2021), and only works specific devices, so ask on either Discord server about this method for your specific device.

Aside from this method, there's no other way to get your device on iOS 14. I'd personally keep my device on the current firmware for "preservation" sake, but if you're looking to use newer features, do it now while you can. I also recommend that, if you upgrade and have a low battery health, you should probably get that fixed or you'll likely find yourself having less performance than before.

When i upgrade with futurerestore and use latest baseband, and i want to upgrade from ios 11.2 to 13.4 will it be ok with sep/baseband/ios compatabilty? The futurerestoreprozess will install the 13.4 baseband of the ipsw file of ios 13.4?

No latest sep and bb are for ios 14 and are not compatible with ios 13 . So futurerestore will fail
so use the method provided to upgrade to ios 14.3 then jailbreak with unc0ver or taurine

You can still goto 14.3 without blobs by offical OTA FIRMWARE

Yeh need the profile way to get to 14.3 .
You can try specific sep and bb on the target firmware as your upgrading and not downgrading . But think it will fail

Ok i understand, apple checks the baseband and the firmware together, so if i install ios 13 and if i don‘t install the latest baseband it will be inkompatible, because baseband must be of ios 14.4.2.

Howdy. I've been trying to upgrade my iPhone 11 from 13.5 to 14.2 using the automatic settings, however, I always get the "Device ApNonce does not match APTicket nonce" error, even though I know my generator is set to 0x1111111111111111. Any idea how to get past this?
