Thread: MuscleNerd Warns Those Updating to iOS 8 Can't go Back to iOS 7 and Will Lose Jailbreak

    Default MuscleNerd Warns Those Updating to iOS 8 Can't go Back to iOS 7 and Will Lose Jailbreak


    iOS 8 was just released Wednesday afternoon, but just because the "latest and greatest" of Apple's software engineering skills is now out doesn't necessarily mean you should jump over to it just yet.

    MuscleNerd has sent out a bold reminder to jailbreakers everywhere via Twitter that those jailbroken on iOS 7 should avoid updating to iOS 8. Once you update to iOS 8, you won't be able to downgrade back to iOS 7 to re-jailbreak your device, and you will have to wait until a jailbreak is (if it is) released for iOS 8.

    MuscleNerd also notes that there are a small number of users that will still be able to upgrade, but with very specific requirements:

    Those with iPad 2 devices and SHSH blobs saved for iOS 4 or iOS 5 will still be able to downgrade using redsn0w, but other device users are out of luck.

    The message is more aimed toward the newer jailbreakers that may not know as much as the more experienced that understand the technicalities of the signing window. Shortly, Apple will stop allowing users to downgrade to iOS 7 after upgrading to iOS 8 in an attempt to thwart jailbreaking and to help keep all users on the latest firmware.

    We also recommend that those jailbroken on iOS 7 stick with their jailbreak if they want to keep it. There's no telling if and when an iOS 8 jailbreak will be released.

    FYI, Apple is still signing 7.1.2 if you may need to restore and re-jailbreak before it's too late.

    I think a jailbreak will come sooner this time as we have seen recently there are new teams looking at the jailbreaks! Just a thought but I'm also resigned to the fact my iPhone 6 will most likely arrive with ios8 on it!

    I don't think there is any doubt that the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will have iOS 8 on it already.

    Apple even demonstrated it at the keynote.

    I will too; hoping to get more on secondary market for my i5 if its JB. Two questions though:

    1. Since I obviously can't restore and start fresh without losing my JB, will it be alrright to just "Erase all Data and Settings" when I sell the phone?
    2. I am getting the i5 unlocked through ATT - do I have to restore for the lock to go through? If so, I'm screwed...

    Cause your jailbroken I don't think that would work! I could be wrong but I've always had to restore

    How can i check this? Would like to do a reinstall of 7.1.2 since it is acting a little funny on my 4s, but don't want to do anything stupid and be stuck with iOS8.

    1. That won't work, but not all hope is lost. There are packages on cydia that can wipe pretty much everything but leave your jailbreak in tact. Use cautiously though, because I almost bricked my phone doing that once.

    2. No, it should just unlock automatically. It's the older devices that required a restore.

    Do not use the "erase all data and settings" on a jailbroken device, boot loop city.
    You can use Semirestore or iLex R.A.T to get back to a fresh jailbroken state.

    People who rush to update don't bother to read anything. The crying will start on page 2 I'm sure.

    The fun part is when I write a review and explain at the end where to get the tweak and then someone asks where to get the tweak .

    But yeah, reading is certainly a great way to improve knowledge!

    I honestly didn't even know MuscleNerd was still actively involved in the JB community. I mean, his website hasn't been updated, since, like, 2012.

    ......beware......
    Just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!
