  1. #41
    Lot of trolling. Makes me laugh but puerile to say the least. Anybody know if the signing window is still open? Can't get to my lappy to update my wife's iPhone 5 until tomorrow PM UK time

    I have an iPhone 5S on AT&T. I downloaded ios 8.1 GSM from the link above in this article. Put my phone into DFU mode. Clicked option/restore in itunes. Selected ios 8.1 that I downloaded, it then shows an error saying that this is not the correct firmware for my device. Any help please??

    You got the wrong IPSW...it's either iPhone 6.1 (GSM) or 6.2 (Global) .....check again what you downloaded and than download the other one, which should be the right one ....do you have the latest iTunes installed?

    Lol. Apple was the VERY first REAL touchscreen "smart" phone back in 2007, there were NO others. The original iPhone was the template for every "touch screen" "smart phone" today. I've owned android and iOS, iOS is simply a nicer, sharper, efficient, smarter system to use. Have a good day.

    Downloaded the file from the link but it gave me a a.zip file with no .ispw file in it. What am I doing wrong?

    Change the extension from .zip to .ipsw and it will work fine. Or use FireFox and you would get the .ipsw in that format.

    oops, I see you figured it out.

    Wondering if it's worth updating both my iPad's to 8.1 or stay on 7.1.2?

    I would if I were you. 8.1 is quite stable and has new features. Check the link above to see if apple is still signing 8.1 before you proceed.

    I only have one app that doesn't work on 8.1 and it's the ESPN app. Just a hassle to reload everything it seems.

    I would, as the iOS progression (updates) proceeds, apps that are on lower firmwares tend to not work as well also. With Apple's window of signing 8.1 soon closing, I would update.
    Certainly a big time app like ESPN will be updated, hard to believe it hasn't been already.

    Yeah I'm not sure what's going on with ESPN, it opens and closes instantly. I've sent off the crash logs to them also. I can't be the only one having the problem or maybe I am not sure.

    Depending on the sport(s) you care about, the apps for that sport might be updated. For example, the college football app is 8.1 compatible.

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

    Trying to update my iPhone 5 with 7.0.6 to 8.1, but my lock button is broken and I don't know how to put it in recovery mode without it. Suggestions?

    Got it. Download Reiboot if anyone else has this issue.
