    8.1.3 is not jailbreak-able. BUT Apple is still signing 8.1.2, which can be jailbroken.

    ......beware......

    Thanks for the response. Am I able to download 8.1.2 manually and load it up with itunes?

    As of this moment (0521 GMT 3FEB2015), yes. Download the IPSW here, then chick Restore while holding down Shift (for Windows) or Option (for OS X). For best results, put your phone into DFU mode before restoring, and set up your iPhone as a new device. Once restored, jailbreak with TaiG or 25PP (Windows and Mac tools, respectively).

    So I finally got the chance to do this. After loading the ipsw, it gave me an error message: "This device isn't eligible for the requested build". Why is this happening?

    I downgraded itunes from 12.1 to 12.0.1, if that makes a difference. Also, I downloaded PP for my Mac.

    Do you don't have any entries in your hosts file (it's at /etc/hosts on OS X, use Finder's "Go" command or Terminal to get there) for "gs.apple.com"? If so, remove them.

    If you don't have anything in your hosts file for gs.apple.com, things get more exciting. I just checked, 8.1.2 is still being signed for all devices, so that "isn't eligible" error is... unusual.

    The other thing that immediately comes to mind is the iTunes 12.1, but you said you downgraded it back to 12.0.1... and I'm under the impression that the 12.1 is only an issue for devices already on 8.1.3.

    Out of good ideas for this one, I guess.

    Are you sure, that you have downloaded the right IPSW? You are on AT&T, so it should be GSM model, I guess.

    Sadly, all moot now. 8.1.2 is no longer signed.

    Very sorry about that, yakabod.

    That's a bummer. Thanks for that update. Will I be able to jump to an older version? Or was 8.1.2 my only choice?

    Right now, either you stay on 8.1.2 or update to 8.1.3, that's all you can do.

    The host file does have gs.apple.com. But it will not let me edit.

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
    It says, "You dont have permission to write to the folder that the file "hosts" is in. You can duplicate this document and edit the duplicate. Only the duplicate will include your changes."

    ups sorry, than just change 8.1.2 to 7.0.4 and the rest of my statement remains the same

    Wow, I can't English. D:

    Open Terminal (Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal.app) and type the following command.
    Code:
    $ sudo nano /etc/hosts
    You'll be asked for your password. The command will only work if your account is an administrator on your computer. Edit out the gs.apple.com entries, then hit Control (not Command, colloquially the "Apple key") + O to save your changes and Control + X to exit the file.

    Again, all moot at this point. Don't go to 8.1.3 if you want to be jailbroken.
