Downgrade iOS 8.4.1 to 8.4 on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

It becomes popular to downgrade iOS 8.4.1 to 8.4 because the latest Apple mobile firmware version 8.4.1 is currently non-jailbreakable. The company patched the exploits used for untethering version 8.4 and earlier iOS 8 platform. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users who accidentally updated or restored to 8.4.1 still have time for the procedure.

The time is limited though. Keep in mind that Apple will soon stop signing iOS 8.4 as the company should unveil iOS 9 firmware in the fall. This will make downgrade impossible and you won’t be able to get back to the firmware that can be jailbroken with TaiG or PP jailbreak program.
