If your Device is not working you can easily downgrade your iOS 7.0.2 to iOS 7 by following the east steps mentioned below:

  1. Make sure you’ve updated to iTunes 11.1
  2. Plug your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch into iTunes
  3. Agree to trust the computer if iOS 7 asks
  4. Backup your device, if you don’t want a clean install
  5. Click “Restore”
  6. Let iTunes download and re-install iOS 7 on your device

If iTunes says there is no new version to update to, you can do it forcibly by putting your iPhone, iPad, or iPod into DFU mode after the backup, then doing the restore. DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode will make sure you download and install the latest release version of iOS off of Apple’s servers.

Downgrading iOS 7.0.2 to iOS 7 will turn your device back to normal.

    I’d like to downgrade from 7.0.3 to 7.0.2. Is that possible? If so, how?

      We are sorry. This is not yet possible.
