It won't let me OTA because I don't have 2.5GB free. 1.1GB is not enough for a 270MB update.

If you need to restore to 7.0.6, do it quickly

How do you restore to 7.0.6 after 7.1 starts showing update to update? Where you do find the 7.0.6 file. My wife needs to probably restore hers and not lose the jailbreak by going to 7.1. Her fitness apps are all crashing on her.

Iphone 5 I found the below link for her. After she downloads the ipsw does it take anything special to get her phone updated? How do we know if Apple is still signing 7.0.6? It is usually a couple days correct?

more like a couple hours!

once you have it downloaded, open itunes, plug in the iphone
and then hold the shift key and click restore
then choose the downloaded 7.0.6 ipsw and it'll restore to 7.0.6 as long as it's still being signed at that time

make sure you download the correct ipsw!

iPhone 5 (GSM): http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS7/031-2899.20140221.8j5GW/iPhone5,1_7.0.6_11B651_Restore.ipsw
iPhone 5 (Global): http://appldnld.apple.com/iOS7/031-2979.20140221.8j5GW/iPhone5,2_7.0.6_11B651_Restore.ipsw

or if you have restored to 7.0.6 via itunes (downloaded in itunes), then you can try browsing to %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates and see if the 7.0.6 ipsw is still there

Manually download the firmware .ipsw file from a 3rd party site and option click iTunes to restore.

I went ahead and upgraded. I got sick and tired of random reboots of my phone. I'm keeping my iPad on 7.0.6 for now strictly because of f.lux.
