Not possible. Jailbroken phone.
Any other solution?

Missunderstanding. My fault. English is not my native language.
A problem I am facing is not iOS itself. It is apps. I've updated some of them for iOS 5 versions and they were hardly working even in versions for iOS4.
So, my question is it possible to return some applications from higher to lower versions. For instance Skype from version 3 to downgrade to Skype version 2, etc...

Remove the apps

You can not go back with apps without removing them and then re-installing the lower version you want.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
