    So Im on an older iTunes and i Downloaded the iOS 8.1.2 IPSW. I successfully downgraded my 5S from 8.1.3 to 8.1.2.

    When my dads iPhone 5S gets here in 3 days and say its on 8.1.3 but Apple stops signing 8.1.2, can I still downgrade it? Since I have the download link and the older iTunes all saved?

    Thx

    Once Apple has stopped the signing of 8.1.2 there'll be no way to downgrade. You can only restore and/or downgrade to a software version which is signed by Apple.

    No.
    If Apple stops signing it it's not possible to downgrade at all.
    Doesn't matter if you have the download link, file or old itunes.

    OK do you know of a tweak for iOS 7 that mimics the way iOS 8 messages can send a quick voice memo and send multiple pix at once? thx

    Nothing you can do.

    But with bite, you can't send multiple pix at once by checking them in the photo roll with iOS 8 or send the voice memos either huh?

    I've never had any issue sending multiple images.

    Ok yeah you have never had iOS 8. With iOS 8 when you want to send some photos, it has like a little preview with 10 of your most recent photos...or you can open up the camera roll and select them. BiteSMS doesn't do that.

    I think he might be referring to selecting multiple images at once?

    I think so. I had a reply all set, but I kept re-reading what he said and I think you are correct.

    In that situation, BiteSMS does not do this.
