Default Restoring OS6 bckup to OS5 nogo:(

Please Login to Remove!

Long time since I have posted.

I want to go back to my 9700 from my 9800 and have just discovered that restoring your os5 device from a back up from a os6 device doesn't work.

What i am experiencing is that the option button no longer takes you to your apps screen and does nothing except on the second tap brings up the short menu.

I have asked someone and they said they were able to restore from os6 to their os5 9700 but have no idea why their's worked and mine doesn't.

im perplexed??
