    I have a iPod Touch 5 generation, that I use for development that currently has installed in its internal version 7.0.4 of IOS. I wish I could update but I would like to update to version 9.2.1, because I'm afraid of the performance.
    I would like to then update to version 8.4.1, but I am afraid that is not possible, because I believe that Apple closed the signatures to that version.
    Is there a way to still be able to install the version 8.4.1 on the iPod ?

    You can only upgrade to 9.2.1. This topic is well-covered in the forums.

    My understanding is that you take a big hit with 8.4 and that this is slightly improved with 9. I have been keeping my 5 at 7.0.4.
