There is no free software to unlock iPhone 5. You need to get it IMEI unlocked from the Carrier or any reputed third party. Carrier will unlock as per their unlocking policy. If you post who is the original carrier it will help to provide more help.

I don't need it unlocked as it is already unlocked I done a upgrade from ios 8 to ios 8.0.1 and when it finished updating I had no service I recently found out that it is apple that put the bugs out their and break the phones so it makes you buy a new 1 but also I have been told the only way to fix it is downgrade back to the original ios but as the phone is now on 8.1.2 I cant and was asking if any 1 new how I could get back to ios 8 or I have jailbroken it and read some where this would fix it but I think I will need to add something in sources but I don't know what so if you know how to downgrade back to ios 8 or know what I need to add in cydia to fix the phone is on Vodafone original network but is unlocked to any.

Can I suggest another career - rather than 'fixing' phones - might be more up your street?

there is no way to downgrade. Ever. Apple "put the bugs out"? Conspiracy theory much?

OK if the iPhone is truly unlocked as stated, follow this.

Jailbreaking and Cydia tweaks will not help you.

iOS of this iPhone can not be downgraded. As commented, there is no Apple bug for your problem.

Have you installed cracked tweaks from shady repos ? Removing them might help.
