Need to restore my 4S without updating, please help!

Ok, I'm in a little bit of a jam here. My landlord is trying to find any way he can to evict me. Currently, his lawyer sent a letter stating that i altered the electrical on the porch and must fix it or be evicted. This is all because he got a housing violation last month and wants to pin this shit on me. Anyway, the solution to my problem is within an iPhone restore point within iTunes. I have a video that I can bring to court to show the judge but it is on a restore point. Anyway, I am running IOS 5.0 on my iPhone 4s and do not want to update to IOS 5.0.1 because I want to jailbreak my phone when the jailbreak comes out. I can not find IOS 5.0 firmware for the 4s anywhere online. I really need some help here if anyone could help.

Why not just restore from an older backup?

Dude, what do you think is more important, getting evicted and going to court or waiting for some jailbreak!?!

But to answer your question no it's not possible

I can't, iTunes will not let me restore without updating.

Of course I think that eviction takes precedence over a jailbreak. If push comes to shove I will update and restore to the appropriate backup. If I have to go to court it will be a couple of months away and hopefully the dev team will have a jailbreak for whatever the current firmware is at that time.

I'm guessing that you want me to hit "reset all settings"? I just want to make sure before I do this.

Ok, this worked. However, it is only giving me an option for backup from June 22, July 1 and July 2. The backup that I need is from August. Is there any way for me to find this on my computer? I am running windows 7.

Actually we are all good. I found a restore point from October 12th that had the video. I'm sending it over to his attorney tomorrow so that they might re-think their eviction notice.
