Trouble updating ipod touch to 4 2 dating for one month what to expect
i Pad, i Phone, and i Pod touch owners: it's that time again.
If you're coming from the beta builds of i OS 8, updating to the public release may not be as groundbreaking as coming from i OS 7, but is still something you will want to do, especially with all the bugs that were squashed.
The process is a little different than the ones listed above.
You must download the GM IPSW file before moving on.
Just make sure to create a list or take a screenshot of all your jailbroken apps and Cydia downloads so you can go back and get them once a i OS 8 jailbreak method is released.
Also, OTA updates are usually not available for jailbroken phones, so you'll have to update via i Tunes.
Connect your device and make sure to back everything up, and then select Restore.
It should restore and update to the latest OS available, but if not, simply check for updates once the phone is restored.
See: The i OS 8 update can be installed on the i Phone 5S, i Phone 5C, i Phone 5, i Phone 4S, i Pad Air, i Pad mini Retina, i Pad mini, i Pad 4, i Pad 3, i Pad 2, and i Pod touch 5. Tap on the available update and hit Install—all you'll need is a strong Wi-Fi connection.
But, given Apple's previous history with server overloads and millions of people downloading the update at the same time, it's always more reliable to update via i Tunes.
If you are jailbroken, you'll have suck it up and say goodbye.
There currently isn't a jailbreak method for i OS 8, so anyone with a jailbroken i OS 7 device that wants to update to i OS 8 will lose their jailbreak.
