Thank you so much for the quick reply , I really need the jailbroken phone , so Do you know if I can downgrade the 6+ to 7.1.2 and then jailbreak it. Sorry if my question is a stupid one!

You cannot downgrade to 7.1.2 on a 6+, as it wasn't built for iOS 7.

LOL no, you can't. Apple never wrote iOS 7 for that device, it ships with 8. :D

Even if there were a lower iOS for it, you can't downgrade anything newer than an iPhone 4 (except an iPad 2 under certain very strict circumstances).

Thank you all of the jailbreak community As without you I would never have used any iPhones .

You can downgrade a device if Apple is still signing the ipsw by doing shift (option Mac) restore or even shift (option Mac) update. Currently that would work for iPhone 5s and down, with iOS 8.x or 7.1.2.

Yes. Click "restore from backup" and select the desired backup.
