    I just bough a used iPhone 5S with 7.1.2. I will be carrying zero new content onto the new device.

    Is it necessary to do a iTunes DFU restore to 7.1.2 before jailbreak or can I do the Reset Content & Settings on the iPhone and be good to go?

    I assume the phone was updated to iOS 7.1.2 via OTA when it first came out and I thought I read that it was better to do a DFU restore of 7.1.2.

    Thoughts?

    I think they are. If I do the restore with the ipsw in iTunes and they are not signing 7.1.2, can I cancel or will I be forced into 8?

    Should I DFU or click Restore in iTunes?
