    I don't want to update to iOS8 but I would like the last version of iOS7. Is there a way to check if it is without trying to install the latest 7.1.2?

    I am not jailbroken, I just want the last version for my old iPhone.

    Now that iOS 8.0 is out, 7.1.2 shouldn't be signed. I don't know.
    iOS 8 is a bit buggy, some want to go back!

    Yes - 7.1.2 is still being signed. Just reverted back on 5, 5c and retina mini.

    Whatever you do, you'd better do it in a hurry.

    It will not activate on my iPhone 5. It is installed though..
    This might be a problem too. If it will not activate, it will not be useful.

    You're saying that you just upgraded an iPhone to iOS 7.1.2?

    Save your phone backups to Time Machine, and you can revert back at any time to 7.x, should the need arise, without having to worry about digital signing.

    No, that's not how it works. The OS must be restored back to the device before the backup is restored to it, and an OS that isn't getting signed won't go on the device.

    That will work for files on your Mac but not your phone's firmware.

    Are new iPhone 5s devices still coming with iOS7 or is 8 already pre-installed? Looking to get another one while still available.

    I am afraid it is now over with the possible downgrade from IOS8 to IOS7. :(

    My iPad Mini Retina currently has iOS 7.1.2 (I never upgraded to 8.x). I would like to restore it and keep the iOS at 7.1.2 -- I'm selling the iPad Mini Retina, and a potential buyer doesn't want iOS 8.x. Since the firmware is no longer being signed, does this mean that I'm screwed?

    I believe you can use the reset settings and erase content option on the phone.
