    Download the 8.0 ipsw. In iTunes click shift and restore for Windows and option and restore for mac (someone correct me if I'm wrong about the Mac one). Select the 8.0 ipsw. It will restore to 8.0. Because it is a restore, you will have to reinstall everything again.
    That would be the process. But as HankAZ said, Apple stopped signing anything below 8.1 so doing all that would be in vain.

    I lose 3% max over a 7 hour period on stand by. I restored my phone and set up as new when I updated to 8.1
    I used to lose 3% per hour on my jailbroken 4S with iOS 5.1.1, now if I lose 1% per hour during the day it's good enough for me. Over night I only lose 5% over 8 hours.

    All my bluetooth calls were working perfectly fine....I updated to 8.1 and now my Bluetooth constantly loses connection with my vehicle and then reconnects a few seconds later. This is happening during conversations and happened multiple times! Very frustrating....any fix for this?

    Apple needs to get it together. There used to be a time when you could update to the latest iOS as soon as it became available with confidence, as bugs were few and far between. Seems like with iOS 7, and more so now with iOS 8, updates are a crap shoot. Some see big increases in smoothness and speed and better battery life. Others, lose important features and functionality or see nasty hits to battery life or lots of stalling freezing and lag. iOS updates are starting to remind me of old BlackBerry OS leaks.

    In my experience, Apple does have it together. The only issue that I had with 8.0.2 was an occasional glitch with the rotation from landscape to portrait and back. That was cleared up fine with iOS 8.1. I literally have NO issues with my iPhone 6 Plus or iOS 8.1.

    My battery life was draining super quick and all I was doing was surfing safari. And the area around the NFC chip got very warm. I suspect it's related to activation of the chip and bugs related to the update.

    Apple needs to test software more before they release it!

    I reverted back to 8.0.2 and the issue disappeared.

    I'm sticking with it till apple can get it right.

    My iPhone 5C got stucked after downloading iOS8.1.
    It only shows an image of a Lightning wire coming from the center bottom, a small arrow pointing up to the iTunes logo.
    I thought that I had to connect the iPhone to iTunes. I did, but after downloading 1.4 Gb and getting some errors messages, it all ends up in the same image.
    I can't go back to iOS8.02.
    Can't reset the phone either (looosing all the photos and videos).
    Help. Thanks.

    My lockup issues have went away with the update. I was having to hard reset my phone 2-3 times a day and I've not had it lock up once since the update.
    What is annoying though is the hotspot keeps disconnecting from my tablet if I'm not using it. It may be a built in default but I don't like having to go into settings and opening up hotspot to reconnect my iPad. Is there a way to fix this?

    That's interesting. I haven't had this problem since one of the early iOS 8 betas on my 5S. I'm on a 6+ now. Maybe you should backup & restore via iTunes to see if that corrects it.

    I'm starting to get some freezing/lag issues. I restored from a 5S when I got my 6 Plus. If this continues my worst nightmare will become reality. I might have to restore as new.
    I setup as new when I got my 6+ & it's been damn near flawless. I tried to restore from my 5S but I was having too many issues.

    Decided to hold off updating 8.0.1 and 8.0.2 so I went from 8.0 --> 8.1.

    No complaints and happy to have Camera Roll back!

    I have noticed since updating both my iPhone 6 & iPad Mini 2 to iOS 8.1, very graphic intensive websites are causing numerous safari reloads, crashes and even device resprings - I had an online chat yesterday with an AppleCare rep and her supervisor & they were able to replicate the issue on numerous devices running iOS 8.1 - I was told that they spotted an issue in my diagnostics, likely in WebKit since I have multiple crash logs for that. They were bringing it to engineers immediately and profusely thanked me for bringing it to their attention instead of just "living with the problem" - I wish Apple would see this as a prime example of why an iOS public beta would be a huge step in the right direction. OSX Yosemite has been so smooth on my MacBook Pro & I really believe its because of the public beta catching bugs that would normally go unnoticed.

    Anyone else seeing this Safari bug and having issues?

    Not seen it (yet). And this is exactly why a public beta of iOS is a bad idea. People who aren't qualified to identify and assist with troubleshooting will exercise their "right" to run the beta releases and the situation will be beyond unmanageable. It's a really bad idea, IMHO

    Updated from 7.1.2 to 8.1 on iPhone 5S. I created a folder for all the new iOS apps and both times when I restarted my phone it changed the folder name to 'New folder' no other folder was affected. Once when I went to Settings>Manage Storage it just closed the window. Also once when I was in Google Drive and clicked on something it just closed Google Drive. I have never seen this happen before in my previous 6 months of using an iPhone. Also anything web related takes longer to load over WiFi than it does to load over LTE. My WiFi is 4x+ the speed of the LTE in my house and loaded webpages instantly before. I reset the network settings as someone suggested and it seemed my WiFi speeds were proper for about 5 minutes. Now my WiFi speeds on my phone just seem to be completely random. Sometimes webpages won't even load, sometimes they take longer than they should, and sometimes they load close to what they should be loading at.

    Unrelated to iOS8: Oh and after updating my iOS. My iTunes had it an update, now iTunes uses 4 times the memory with less functionality. Not sure how Apple made that one possible! With my phone plugged in before and iTunes open I could view all the pages on my iPhone from iTunes, they would always be there no matter what I did in iTunes. Now if I do anything on iTunes away from the window that shows my iPhone pages and then go back it has to reload iPhone all over again!

    With Handoff make sure both devices are on the same wifi network and Bluetooth is toggled on for both devices as well. I could t figure out why mine wasn't working either but then I read an article about it and once I enabled Bluetooth it started working.

    Anyone using a third party keyboard with 8.1? I am still having issues with it. Example: I re-enabled Swiftkey and it only pops up sporadically. Even in the messages app, half the time, I get Swiftkey and the other half, I get the stock keyboard. And then just now, I got a text on my screen while I was in another app and I tried to quick reply and no keyboard popped up at all. I had that issue with the previous iOS 8 versions as well. I've disabled all my third party keyboards for now and will stick with stock until they've addressed the bugs.

    Go for it. iOS 8.1 is solid, and I recommend you set up your new iPhone 6 as new. Yes, it's an inconvenience, but the benefits, in my opinion, outweigh the inconvenience. 😉

    Just when I got use to the Recent Added photo setup they went back to the camera roll and photo stream set up

    Not that I'm complaining but the iOS 8 set up made a lot of sense to me

    No I am not a software engineer by any stretch, but I just proved why a public beta would be beneficial. I identified a bug that was obviously not caught by the developers & brought it to the attention of Apple. They verified and confirmed the issue and were going to bring it to the attention of those who are qualified. This is the point of a beta tester.
