Early last week, Apple released its long-awaited update to its mobile operating system iOS 8.4. iOS 8.4 brought many new features to the iPhone and iPad, such as split-screen and Apple Music.

The new features of iOS 8.4 are definitely welcome. However some like myself have been complaining about how iOS 8.4 seems to be buggier than previous firmwares. I've noticed my keyboard locking up, native apps freezing, among other annoying mishaps, which I did not see in iOS 8.3.

Bad news just keep on coming. On Tuesday Apple stopped signing iOS 8.3 via iTunes. This means that folks wanting to downgrade are completely out of luck and are force with only one option that is iOS 8.4, if they wish to update.

Usually when Apple stops signing a firmware, the Jailbreak community get the worst of it, since Jailbreaks are usually built for older firmwares. This time around that's not the case as a Jailbreak for iOS 8.4 was recently released.
