iOS 8.4.1 download was released yesterday to the public and came with extremely sad news that Apple had patched the exploits needed to make the TaiG jailbreak work. But luckily for us, all is not lost, as Apple is still signing iOS 8.4 currently, which means that you can downgrade right away as long as the window is open. Without further ado, we'll walk you through the process of downgrading your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 8.4 from iOS 8.4.1.

Make sure you backup everything using iCloud or iTunes beforehand, so you can restore all your data once the downgrade process is complete. Also be sure to turn off 'Find My iPhone' off before going ahead with the process - Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone and turn the Find My iPhone toggle to the OFF position.

Downgrade iOS 8.4.1 To iOS 8.4

1. First and foremost, download the iOS 8.4 IPSW firmware file tailored for your device. Make sure you grab the right one otherwise the downgrade process won't work at all, hence get it right the first time.

2. Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your Windows PC or Mac.

3. Launch iTunes.

4. Now select your device in iTunes from the top left hand corner.

5. While holding down the 'Option' key on your Mac, or left 'Shift' key on Windows, click on the 'Restore iPhone' button, which will bring up a popup asking you to point it to the direction of an IPSW file. Select the iOS 8.4 firmware file you downloaded in step 1 in this instance.
