Is it possible to restore your iPhone 3s from ios 5 to 4.3.3 without being jail broken ! I no all about tiny umbrella and have the other iOS on my laptop. Can it be done or do I need to jailbreak it first and if so it begs the next question? Is there a jailbreak for 5 yet

As far as I'm aware, you had to have your SHSH blob (that the term?) saved to be able to roll back. If you've never jailbroken this unit then you've likely not saved that key/signature.

Moved to iPhone Jailbreak.

iP5 is correct. You can only do this if you saved your 4.3.3 SHSH blobs before the signing window closed. You don't have to jailbreak to save them, but it's too late to save that version right now. The Apple signing window for 4.3.3 closed in late July when 4.3.4 was released.

If you do have it saved, you can shift + restore in iTunes or use Tiny Umbrella to downgrade.

I think there is but it's tethered. I'm waiting for the untethered before I flip to iOS5.
