    Hi guys,

    I have an iPhone 4s with iOS 7.1.2. Is it possible to still jailbreak 7.1.2 without installing iOS 8.1? I know that I have to use pangu, but I'm afraid I might be forced to upgrade. I'm relatively new to jailbreak scene.

    Thanks in advance!

    Jailbreaking does not require a restore, or at least the Evasi0n and Pangu jailbreaks do not.

    That said, it's smart to backup your phone before you commit to a jailbreak. But the process is easy and straightforward.

    You will be fine, assuming you did not upgrade to 7.1.2 OTA .

    Not even that matters. Pangu 7.1.2 works just fine on OTA devices.

    If you indeed want that jailbroken, do it now just incase you run into trouble.
    This way you still have a fallback going up to ios 8.1 and then jailbreak that while apple is still signing it - my $0.02

    Thanks guys, I've successfully jailbroken my 4s! Had a few troubles, but didn't have to restore, thankfully!
