hope you got it working. for restore problems you might see if apple is still signing the firmware you are tying to restore. If yes and still problems try restarting your computer and only open iTunes then restore. Don't use any other applications or programs before doing what you need to do. Good luck.

I have a similar problem with the iPad 4th generation. After many attempts and even taking to the Apple store, I couldn't resolve it. Then, yesterday morning (2 weeks had passed), I tried again by restoring with the 8.1.2 ipsw file. I GOT IT RESTORED. Then, I tried to recover from the latest backup from the iCloud. Then, iPad was struck in the middle showing just the Apple icon showing. So, I tried to restore again using the same method. I CANNOT RESTORE IT. Previously, Apple support tried to tell me that it was a hardware issue and tried to sell me a new device. The error code 14 indicates an error with USB communication. I have proven that it is not a hardware issue. It is a SOFTWARE issue. I am going to continue to try again. One thing that I noted when I had restored successfully is that my iPad battery was almost drained. Since then I charged. So, I may try again after draining my battery.

Well noticed a lil glitch after upgrading and I got iPhone 6.. The glitch is making a call and it won't let you make it. So just turn off ur phone then back on and it will work fine.
