Downgrade iOS 8 to iOS 7.1.2


How to go back to ios 7.1? iOS 8 has been released by Apple. All who want to download/install new iOS 8 with new features can make it from here. But... Don't forget, if you want downgrade iOS 8 to iOS 7.1.2 for all iOS 8 confirmed idevices here. How? Yu can see this complete guide from us:

Step 1: Turn the device off, connect it to the computer via USB, and launch your last version iTunes
Step 2:  Place the iOS 8 device into DFU mode: with the device off, hold down the Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds then release the power button, continue holding Home button until iTunes notifies you of a device in recovery mode being detected. The devices screen should stay black as if turned off.

Step 3: Restore within iTunes through either method a or b:

a) Restore from the iOS 7.1.2 backup you made prior to installing iOS 8 beta
b) Restore to iOS 7.1.2 IPSW by Option-Clicking the “Restore” button, and then restore from iCloud backup when finished

Step 4: Let iTunes restore back to iOS 7.1.2, the device will reboot when finished!!!

Updated. The way is closed. You cannot. There is now way to go back. :(

You just have to download a firmware from and website that is for you phone then save to your desktop , after that go to Itunes ´(if ur on windows hold Shift+ left click on restore.U will now be able to chose a program, choose the firmware that you just downloaded and done. BUT REMEMBER MAKE A BACKUP FIRST SO U CAN GET YOUR FILES BACK AFTER THE RESTORE.

I think it is ridiculous to call something an upgrade if it looses the function to copy/ paste. IOS 8.0.2 is the worst "upgrade" ever. Apple made downgrading to 7.1.2 impossible on September 29th.

I am one step closer to waving goodbye to Apple ! This is the most idiotic update I've ever seen! They are now following the exact steps of Microsoft 10 years ago with their teeth-grinding "updates". Terrible
