    English is not my first language so if you see me over describing or something please endure it

    Ok so, I got an Iphone 5 with IOS 6.0.2, jailbroken with something, I forgot and dont know how to check what tool I used, anyways

    I have tried to jailbreak into the newest 8.1 IOS (I wanted 7.1.4 or something but apparently Apple stopped signing those, so I HAVE to get 8.1 if Im going to get something at all), so here is where I start feeling retarded, let me list some problems I have fount so far slapping me in the face, many of them might not have been the correct approach but nothenless they did not worked

    - Ok so I cant upgrade directly to 8.1, for whatever reason, I tried "Check for Update" on the phone on itunes (latest version), and it says my version is the latest one, I believe this is because my iphone is jailbroken and is common behavior, for this same reason, I cant update my phone OTA, jailbroken disabled it.

    - I tried shift+click, and selecting a 8.1 iphone 5 GSM (My phone is GSM, I checked) jwsm (or whatever they called, forgot the initials, the firmware mind you), I got errors while trying to do it this way, Error 0xE8000004 and 3194 on different times, I tried in 2 computers, directly into the USB, with different USB entry, different USB cables and unplugging non needed USB's, they all gave one or the other.

    - Then I tried "Restore Phone" on itunes, clicked "no backup" and then restore when it ask me if im sure, after this nothing happens, I click itunes download tab and its not downloading firmware or anything, so im pretty much stuck.

    Anyone got some kind of advice on how to proceed?

    Try this. Then plug the phone into iTunes.

    If you wat to jailbreak, don't EVER bother looking at the OTA possibility. This is not a troubleshooting step. It's no different than throwing your phone on the ground to update your iOS. Just take the option away.

    DFU restore in iTunes will get you to iOS 8.1
