    Just got my i6 yesterday and loaded it up. Went to restore my i5S w/ 7.1.2 firmware so I could sell it jailbroken and getting a message it "could not be restored because the firmware file is not compatible" which I haven't seen before. Does this mean it can't be signed or something else? I've confirmed I'm using the correct firmware for my device so I don't believe that is the problem. I knew Apple would stop signing shortly after iOS 8 release and may have missed the "Apple stopped signing" announcement, only read that it was going to happen shortly. Can anyone confirm if the message I'm getting indicates Apple isn't signing this firmware or if I have another issue? Thanks.

    More than likely they stopped signing it...

    Surprised that Apple continued signing 7.1.2 as long as they did.

    Also, are you doing anything in particular other than Option+Restore to select the firmware manually?

    Well I've tried on a Mac and using Parallels with Windows 7 and same message all the time. I also tried rebooting into Safe Mode and attempting restore but no luck. I'm out of options. Congrats to those for whom it worked and thanks for the feedback. Disappointed.
