I really need the features which biteSMS offers, however it isn't supported in iOS 8 I have an Iphone 5c, I've downloaded the 7.1.2.ipsw for the iPhone 5c

I've tried to downgrade by putting the phone into recovery mode, holding shift and selecting restore in iTunes and manually selected the .ipsw. However, since iOS isn't signed by apple this method no longer works.

Is there any alternate method / 3rd part tool which will let me do this?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Thank You, Sean

iPhone 5.4 This is the first I've heard of SHSH blobs, i've just done some reading on it.

What's the best tool for getting the SHSH blobs off the phone, I've just downloaded iFaith 1.5.9 and i'm going to see if its up to the job

it appears iFaith 1.5.9 does not support iPhone 5c or iOS 8 So i'm still at a dead end

You can't save SHSH for 7.1.2 now so you can't downgrade.

Is there no possible way to downgrade from iOS 8 to iOS 7 on an iPhone 5c (5.4)?
