Hello Mikiya, Isn't it that the Apple Store in Holiday Plaza (Windows of the World) is open? Maybe you can bring it there and ask a Apple Genius Staff to help  you with your problem. I'm sure they can reset your iPhone 4S to factory setting.

Well, perhaps it's possible for Shenzhen Metro. It does not display exit for HK MTR stations.

And the bus info was indeed accurate as it's never failed me. So I loved it.

So where exactly can I find the file that you mention?

I am a technical idiot really, that is why I can't restore anything myself :)

For the maps app, here is how mine looks like, it shows the METRO Exit, which the Google-Map did not do before, it shows traffic and chinese names but no BUS, but i would not rely on Google-Maps Bus info either, better get a separate App for that:

yes i can show you ...

Basically all you need a file called "iPhone4,1_5.1_9B179_Restore.ipsw" ( name varies a bit ) ... then u can rstore your iPhone to 5.1 with a few clicks ...

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
