iOS 8.0.1 downgrade after not working

By Peter Chubb - Sep 25, 2014

Several of our readers have started to contact us concerning iOS 8.0.1 downgrade to iOS 8, which is in regard to the disastrous update that Apple issued yesterday. The update was issued to bring with it a fix for HealthKit, which had a bug from the start, but brought with it a new set of problems.

It is not yet clear if any iPad users experienced any iOS 8.0.1 issues, but seeing as though Apple has pulled the update, they may also wish to downgrade seeing as though iOS 8.0.1 is not working.

We are already hearing details of an iOS 8.0.2 update, which we will discuss later today once more information becomes available.

iOS 8.0.1 downgrade

The first step to downgrade to a previous version of iOS 8 is to connect the device to your computer, then download the iOS 8 firmware, which could take some time depending on your Internet connection speed.

Make certain that Find My iPhone is turned off and then launch iTunes. You will then have to click back up your iPad or iPhone and then hold down the Option Key for Mac or Shift on a PC and click Check for Updates.

All you then need to do is select the file you have just downloaded and the install process will begin. Good luck, and we hope this process works for you.
