    Link is specifically designed to block attempted restores from a newer OS to an older OS.

    However you can use Darcy's tool to fool it into thinking the backup was taken from an older OS.

    Bear in mind that you can get unpredictable results from this. Which is precisely why Link blocks this kind of thing by default.

    And I hope by "restore" you meant "restore a backup taken on a 10.2 installation to a 10.1 installation".

    If you instead meant "reload an earlier OS", then I would have to write a different response.

    I used link but I did things differently than you'll find posted here. This is what I did:

    First drained my battery to 12%

    Second I did Security Wipe without plugging my phone up so it would kill the battery during or it got close. 3%.

    Ran through the start up skipping everything except wifi.

    What happened was it didn't load my SIM so basically the OS was broken. I connected to Link and used main Settings and chose reload. It put me back to the latest AT&T release. May not be a reliable way as it could be hit or miss but is much easier and worthy of trying. You'll know because your Contacts saved to SIM won't show if it works.

    Easiest way yet.....

    Disable Network,Data and Wifi and enable Airplane Mode. Plug in phone,allow Link to start,tap the gear and choose reload.

    Has worked flawless the many times I have jumped back and forth trying out apps to see which works where.
