    So, i accidentally updated to ios 8 without thinking. I was jail broken. I wanna downgrade back to 7.1.2 and I have the files. (ISPW) I am not sure whether i will keep apps, so i really need help.

    There is no way to downgrade now as Apple has stopped signing those versions. Unfortunately you'll have to wait for iOS 8 to be jail broken. I'm curious though about this accidental update as the software update in settings won't even show an update when jail broken. The only way to do it is manually through iTunes.

    depends when your last back up was- if you were on iOS 8 then you won't be able to use that back up on iOS 7. You may have to add your stuff manually

    I read a couple of threads that said they were able to do it but that was yesterday I think- I haven't tried personally so I can't attest for it

    You cannot go back. Apple has stopped signing (authorizing activation) of previous versions.

    ios8 really isnt all that bad, but i dont see how you can do an accidental update unless you just got click happy when the pop up shows to update but even then you have time to cancel the download before it does anything. either way, im not sure if apple has stopped signing 7.1.2 casue via this link Firmware Links - Download iOS Firmware for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple TV / Just a Penguin it shows as its still being signed but ive read others not being able to go back to it.

    If you can not go back, just use your time without jailbreak to learn about iOS 8. There are many new features. I have a feeling a jailbreak for iOS 8 won't be too far off.

    Apple is still signing 7.1.2 as of today. I rolled back just last night. If you have or can download the ipsw go for it before they really do stop signing.
