How to Install iOS 7.1.2 using iTunes

iOS 8 is expected to arrive in less than a day and, shortly afterwards, Apple is going to stop signing older firmwares. That means, if you haven’t updated to iOS 7.1.2 you should do it now or lose the chance to install the latest jailbreak forever.

iOS 7.1.2 isn’t a huge release, simply one that is designed to fix a few bugs before iOS 8 arrives. The main fix is for a mail encryption bug that affected some users of Mail and iMessage. A lock screen bug and a couple of other minor issues are fixed along with the usual small improvements.

iOS 7.1.2 is also the last firmware that can be jailbroken so if you don’t want to lose that chance, don’t upgrade to iOS 8 until a new jailbreak arrives.

    1. Some how, my Sync settings are now breokn. My desktop now requires me to enter a passphrase that I don’t have (probably some application-specific).Guess I have to delete my sync data at Google and set it up again… of cause, no data is lost (it’s on the desktop), but it waste my time.
