reminder to those who have already upgraded to iOS8.0

that Apple is *still* signing downgrades back to iOS7.1.2, eg for the iP5, iP5C & iP5S & some pads,

so if like me you want a battery again (until iOS8.1 solves the niggles) then you can regrade your 'mobe following this

URGENT as the iOS7 signing will surely be switched off soon!

(I noticed that I had to dig my old/last .ipsw & the last iOS7 "Find Friends/iPhone3.0.1.ipa's" & Pages2.2.2.ipa apps from trash as the new Finds 4.0 & Pages 2.4.2 are incompatible with a restored iOS7)
