I have the latest beta of 9.3.3 installed and I'd like to roll back to 9.3.2. Would it be as easy as downloading the IPSW and restoring it in iTunes? And if so, do I lose my backup because of using an 'older' software version?

Thanks.

Yes. Here are complete directions.

You won't be able to use your 9.3.3 backup. Do you still have a backup you made on 9.3.2? I usually make an iCloud backup on the old firmware before testing firmware and then use iTunes backups on the new one. That way I can easily roll back without setting up from scratch.

Unfortunately, I have iCloud sync turned off and I usually update iOS software from the device itself. Our upload speeds are horrible over here, which is why I never upload anything to the cloud. I guess I'll just wait for a 9.3.3 jailbreak if it ever comes out.

Thanks, Mindi!

You don't have to do it that way. Another option would have been to make a copy of your 9.3.2 iTunes backup. There's not a 9.3.2 jailbreak anyway so it's not a big deal.
