Those planning to downgrade their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to more stable versions of iOS 7.1.2 could be out of luck, as Apple has officially stopped signing the final firmware release for iOS 7.
The internet is abuzz with news of the downgrade window closing for iOS 7.1.2 with veteran iOS jailbreak developer iH8sn0w confirming via Twitter that the iPhone maker has ceased support for iOS 8 downgrade back to iOS 7 as it has stopped signing the latest iOS 7 version.
What This Means for Jailbreakers and iOS 8 Users
As there is no working jailbreak available for iOS 8 at the moment, iOS users have been constrained to use iOS 7.1.2 in order to save their existing jailbreak tweaks and apps.
Those who are already jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2 are strongly advised to avoid the iOS 8 update at any cost. Furthermore, it is advisable to disable OTA updates on such devices in order to avoid accidental upgrade to iOS 8 and prevent loss of jailbreak tweaks or apps.
Meanwhile, those running iOS 8 on their devices will have to wait until the next jailbreak is released by evad3rs or till the Chinese team of hackers unleashes an updated version of Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8.
At the moment, there seems to be no viable exploit or bug that could be used to unlock the iOS 8 jailbreak as evad3rs and third-party jailbreak developers are busy unearthing new exploits in Apple's software.
