Well, Niko, if it's that easy for you, wilk you help me do this? Apparently, it's far from easy for many people.

As for the Maps app, I'd still say that the Google one was far superior. It had more details, plus it had more Chinese names on there (along with the English ones). But most importantly, it gave you information about public transport along the way, which the Apple Maps doesn't :-P That feature, in particular, was exceptionally usrful to me as I now have to travel unfamiliar routes quite often. The new Maps can hardly help me much now. I want the old Maps back! :_-(

i think iOS6 has some glitches but overall i dont have much hickups, the map app works 90% as expected it happened once so far that the shown position was off ... generally i have to say that the details on the new Maps-App is great deal better than what google used to show ... 

Downgrading is generally not a very good idea, rather its better to wait before upgrading, but you can do it with a iOS5 Restore File which is quite easy.

Thanks very much for your help. I've tried installing the App and it just opens the maps in a web browser. I'd already added an icon from Google Maps which seems to be working the same. It's better than nothing, of course, but the Web version of the maps is slower than the app used to be and a couple of features cannot be used the same way...

Here it is a workaround in order to have the google maps app in your phone. This will install the Google Maps web version as an app in your iPhone.

Open this link in your iPhone and install it:

Hey, J-STAR, 

I'd be delighted to hear your results. Seems like there are so many people out there desperately looking for ways to change back. Something MUST be wrong when you see this kind of thing happening :-P

GrayDude: I am definitely not a techie and I can't be sure how similar or different the iOS 5 and 6 are, however, I know that I don't like the new version of Youtube, I hate the Apple Maps which are as good as useless. Also, battery drainage seems to have gone up after the upgrade. Now, if all these things are called an "upgrade", then I want none of it, thank you very much.

Because you are holding it 90 degrees sideways when you take the movie.

You can turn your phone, but not your computer.

Just a guess. ;-D

Well J-Star, I think it's a completely different process if you Jailbreak your iPhone. Definitely, there might be some firmware changes that happens or a part of system restore was deleted.

Please do share if you happen to find a solution here so that people will know what to do if they accidentally upgraded to the freaking iOS 6. Thanks.

@ Victoria , I'm facing the same problem with my iphone also but i have found a person who can change the software to previous version. Let me fix my phone first than i let you know if its ok or not. 

@Gray Dude, bro even you use itunes it will update or restore to the new version its very hard to get back to the previous one. I have try all this support. I lost my all software coz my phone was Jailbreak. And when i update my phone i lost everything except the contacts , msgs, and some free software which i download, all the software which i download from jailbreak are gone :( ... 

I will let you know if i can find some information about that.
