    Hi,
    I'm currently on iOS 7.1.2 stock, haven't jailbroken yet. I'm thinking about upgrading to iOS 8 to see if battery life improves but just in case might want to downgrade in case things don't. Back in the day you could downgrade with some certificate and blocking Apple's server through the host file. Is that still possible?

    Thanks.

    So I should probably stick with iOS 7.1.2 because I haven't heard good things about iOS 8 in terms of battery life and Safari browsing.

    iOS 8.1 fixed many problems. Just note that if you upgrade, you can never go back.

    Is it closed? I think I heard musclenerd said it was still possible. Could have been a few days back though.

    It hasn't been signed for close to a month now.

    I'm still on ios 7.1.2. Was debating to jailbreak ios 8 or just stay at jailbroken ios 7.1.2. Then again I hardly touch my ipod so I might as well.

    Just stay on 7.1.2. It's not worth the headache of upgrading at the moment.
