Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 9 and 8.4.1 do not have jailbreaks. You can use Cydia Impactor if you need to un-jailbreak an 8.1-8.4 device without restoring.
TaiG provides an iOS 8.4 and 8.3 untethered jailbreak. Check @taig_jailbreak, @saurik, and /r/jailbreak for news and updates.

How to fix some mysterious problems.

For some reason, I can't download a non-corrupt IPSW file. I've tried using Firefox, Chrome and Jdownloader, even my laptop which has Chrome on it as well, then I compare the hash with the ones listed on the iPhone Wiki. Every time, it's a different hash. I tried using Redsn0w to stitch my SHSH blobs anyways, but it gives me "cannot close compressed file in IPSW."

For reference, the IPSW file I'm trying to download is this one:,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw

And the hash I'm comparing it with is from this page:

Is there any recommended browser/tool to download the IPSW, or is there an issue somewhere else?

Something is way wrong with your Internet connection.

And you thought resurrecting a year-old thread to add your "me too" was a good idea. That's not even your problem anyway, check the faq for 3194.

Apple shut down that link because you can't downgrade to 5.1.1 officially so they make it harder to downgrade unofficially.

That is false. Apple continues to host and allows downloads of old firmwares.
