    A few days ago i had to remove my jailbreak casue i have to fix my cracked screen but nevermind that<. i think i removed it the wrong way cause if i plugged it in and was going to jailbreak it again it said it already have it but that's not the problem. i updated the phone (iphone 5s) from 7.0.2 to 8.2 and it was fine and great! then i wanted 7.1.2 back so i downloaded a program that let me downgrade it. and now when i activaded it my phone is stuck in the update, frozen and it been it for hours and idk what to do. i tried restore and update via itunes but when the update is done there nothing happenes and i put it in DFU mode and same thing happenes and if i update then it oes back to freze at the end. PLEASE HELP ME!!! :(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

    You can't downgrade a 5s. Also iOS 8.2 doesn't exist (as a public release) so I think you mean iOS 8.1

    Put your phone into DFU, restore using the proper 8.1 IPSW and you'll be back up and running.

    What did you download and apply to your phone ?

    Are you sure you are getting it into DFU mode, the screen should be completely dark (blank).

    yea what's this mysterious program you downloaded to do something that you can't do on the 5s. it's clearly causing the problem

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Sounds like your phone has a hardware issue.
    Also like others told you its not possible to downgrade your device.
    And if it doesn't respond or let you dfu restore it then you messed up something possibly when you "fixed" the screen.
