Unlock currently jailbroken AT&T iPhone 6?


iMore Question

About a month ago I switched from AT&T to T-mobile and today AT&T finally unlocked my phone so I can now use on my new carrier. However to complete the unlock process AT&T says I must restore my iPhone through iTunes. The problem is that Apple as released iOS 8.4.1 which killed TaiG jailbreak, and, as far as I know, yesterday Apple also stopped signing iOS 8.4. My question is basically is there anyway I can restore my iPhone using iTunes and not be forced into updating to 8.4.1, or if i have to go to 8.4.1 is there any way to get back down to 8.4 so after my phone is unlocked I can "downgrade" and rejailbreak my iPhone. Again my iPhone 6 is currently jailbroken on iOS 8.4.

Thanks for any input!

If you want the phone unlocked, you have to update to 8.4.1 and there's no going back after... and likely will never see a jailbreak.
