v0rtexNonce - Downgrade from iOS 10.3.x to iOS 10.2/ 10.2.1 Without Jailbreaking
V0rtexNonce is a special downgrading tool, mainly based on the v0rtex loophole Siguza exploited. It can allow unjailbroken iDevices running on iOS 10.3.3 to write Generators value to the iDevice’s NVRAM. So that the Generator value is fixed while downgrading. But v0rtexNonce applies to some iDevices. If your want to downgrade back to iOS 10.2, and your iDevice is running on iOS 10.3.3, you can keep reading.
Please note that this method may cause malfunction of iDevices, stuck on white Apple logo or lose iOS 10.3.3. Please proceed at your own risk.
