With each new version of iOS that comes out the jailbreaking community get thrown into chaos. In the past it wasn’t long after Apple launched a new version that the jailbreaking community offered a jailbreak. Since the launch of iOS 7.1 this has been stopped.
When people updated to iOS 7.1 they lost the jailbreak thanks to the fact that Apple made it very secure and it’s been impossible to jailbreak for the newer devices. People thought that they were stuck with the update; however there is a way that they can go back.
If you own the iPhone and you want to revert back you can with iTunes.
So to take iOS 7.1 off your device and put iOS 7 back on you should follow the steps that are found below.
1. Connect your device (iPhone 4,4S,5,5s,5c) to the computer and launch iTunes (latest version)
2. Boot the device into DFU mode by pressing the Power and Home button simultaneously for about 10seconds. After that, release the Power button only and iTunes will read that the phone is in recovery mode.
3. Hold the shift key on your keyboard and select restore on iTunes. (Alt/Option key for Mac).
4. Select the files downloaded earlier and the installation should commence and complete accordingly.
At the moment this is the only way that you can revert the iPhone back. Now we are waiting for the release of iOS 8 from Apple.
