Apple blocks signatures on iOS 7.1.2, no more downgrades for iOS 8


As was assumed, Apple after the release of iOS 8.0.2 has removed the signatures on the “old” iOS 7.1.2this means that now it is no longer possible to carry out the procedure iOS 8 downgradeand users who have installed the latest available updates will no longer be able to revert to old versions.

As always happens when Apple releases a new firmware, the company removes what are called the “signatures” that allow users to restore that version of iOS on their iPhones and iPads from iTunes. With the release of iOS 8 the signatures of the previous iOS 7.1.2 were still available, which allowed those who did not like the latest version, or those who wanted to return to a firmware on which it was possible to jailbreakto install the old version again.

Now this possibility has been closed, so those who have updated to iOS 8 cannot return to a previous firmware, while those who have not yet performed this update and have a jailbroken device, must be careful not to update their device or will lose the possibility to jailbreak again.

We remind you that at the moment there is still no precise news of when the iOS 8 jailbreak will make its appearance on the scene, the Chinese team Pangu has made it official that he has set to work to find it, and as always we will provide you with all the news about it.
