The update also includes improvements to iBeacon.

I have to fight the urge to click on this article's picture…



There we go; OCD assuaged.

Who cares, there's really no need anymore unless you want ugly Winterboard themes or pirated apps.


Perhaps there's no need for you, but others look forward to:

[LIST]
[*]Activator and the complete control it provides over hardware buttons
[*]Passcode reconfigurations for better security
[*]Emulation of old game consoles (though there are some legal…ish non-jailbroken versions)
[*]BiteSMS and other such system refinements
[/LIST]

you don't need to jailbreak to install pirated apps anymore, more to the point there are many useful tweaks for iOS7 Inc Touch ID per App, Auki -Quick reply (feature of iOS8 - beta is too unstable right now) Activator. etc

This is one of the biggest reasons I jailbreak. I have a few apps that force you to view an ad upon opening the app and with adblocker, it gets rid of that.

My iPhone, iPad Air and iPad mini are all stuck at the Apple logo + progress bar :eek: never tried this for all the OTA updates I have done since iOS 5!

Update: Home + Power button did the trick. This update is definitely not ready.


I spoke with Apple Tier II Support (same issue with iPhone 5 and iPad Air) and confirmed this is a newly discovered issue. The above resolution was used to resolve my issue and all was fine, to include 7.1.2 successfully installing. They now have elevated this to developers. No negative affect on the installation other than a minor and temporary scare!

To address the person above about impatience, I waited over an hour and both the iPhone and iPad "froze" at the same stage of the second bar progression. First bar progression is the actual software update, second is the reboot phase. The second phase visually fails but is actually complete behind the scene. Don't waste your time with complete restore, as it is completely unnecessary.
