iOS 8.0.1 kill the Touch ID and cell service on your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 plus? Here's how to fix it!

Apple has just released iOS 8.0.1, a bug fix update for iOS 8. Unfortunately, while the full binary installed from iTunes worked fine, the bit-differential file installed over-the-air via Software Update has left some iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus with Touch ID and cellular connection issues. Apple has since pulled the update, but that doesn't help affected iPhones. It's possible Apple can fix and re-issue the update quickly, or a workaround will be found shortly, but if you've already updated, and you're affected, here's what you need to do:

Do not update: iOS 8.0.1 cripples iPhone 6 and 6 Plus by killing Touch ID and cell service

Update: If you've already updated, here's how to restore in iTunes and fix iOS 8.0.1 Touch ID and cell issues. If you haven't, Apple has pulled iOS 8.0.1 — even if it shows as available on your phone, don't do it.

Do not install the recently-released iOS 8.0.1 update, especially if you have an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. The update brings with it several bug fixes, including fixes to HealthKit, keyboards, and extensions, but it also comes with one show-stopping bug: it kills cellular service and Touch ID on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
