    I jailbreaked iOS 8.1.2 with taig and backed everything up in iTunes . However, I had to get my iPhone swapped at Apple store. The new iPhone they gave me has the older iOS 8.1.1 installed.

    So my questions are, what will happen if I restore my iOS 8.1.2 backup? Will I get all my data back with 8.1.2 jailbreak? Or do I have to jailbreak my current iOS 8.1.1 first and then restore my backup?

    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You can't restore a newer ios created backup file to older iOS version.
    So if your backup was created under 8.1.2 you will need to be on that or higher to use that backup.
    And you can't restore your current device to anything but the latest iOS versio signed by Apple. And you cannot jb the newest iOS.

    You can try editing the info.plist in your backup. Editing from 8.1.2 to 8.1.1 shouldn't be a big deal. However, no guarantee that will work.
