Apple has now closed the iOS 7.1.2 signing window. After releasing iOS 8 on 17 September, Apple continued to sign older firmware iOS 7.1.2. But now Apple is no longer signing iOS 7.1.2, which means you can no longer downgrade to iOS 7.1.2 from iOS 8.
Earlier this week, we reported that Apple is still signing iOS 7.1.2 but now Apple has officially killed the signing window. The news was confirmed by renowned hacker iH8sn0w.

Many people were not happy with the iOS 8, as it has many bugs and other issues. One of the main reason is Apps compatibility. Other reason are crashing, slower performance on older device (iPhone 4S) and many more.
If you have already updated to iOS 8 and want to rollback to iOS 7.1.2 then your are stuck on iOS 8. Now there is no way to downgrade your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch from iOS 8.0.2 to iOS 7.1.2.
But one thing to point out is that Apple has closed the signing window after 10 days. Earlier Apple used to close the signing window as soon as new firmware is released. Apple may want to give an option to rollback to early adopters.
Have you downgraded your iPhone, iPad from iOS 8 to iOS 7.1.2?
