My iPad is running 7.0.2 and is jailbroken. It looks like Apple is not signing the 7.1.2 any longer.

Is there a way to upgrade iOS to 7.1.2 without letting iTunes contact its home (i.e. Apple's servers)?

  • No. You cannot install a version of iOS that Apple is no longer signing. – user10355 Oct 17 '14 at 4:52
  • Apple is still signing 7.1.2 for the iPhone 4 & equivalent hardware, that can't use iOS 8 – Tetsujin Oct 17 '14 at 7:40

Nope. It's impossible to upgrade iOS firmware without connecting to the Apple servers.

Currently, there is a jailbreak for iOS 8.1 using Pangu which is being signed at the moment. iOS 8.1.1 update which is due in a few weeks will patch the jailbreak. It could be the right moment to upgrade your iOS version and re-jailbreak it. @saurik confirmed that the current iOS 8 jailbreak is stable.
