Downgrade iOS 10 to iOS 9.3.2

iOS 10 has been successfully launched and, as always, there was the usual rush to update, causing no end of update errors as Apple’s servers failed to cope. For those that did manage to update safely some are finding that iOS 10 is not quite a stable as they hoped. However, as usual, iOS 9.3.2 firmware is still being signed by Apple and will be for a while yet so this tutorial is for those of you that would rather downgrade and wait for the problems in iOS 10 to be sorted out.
