    Heck yeah bring It!

    BTW how many versions were there for IOS 7 JB? I remember at least 3?
    I remember Bugs too. 😇

    How many versions of 6?

    I Think people are complaining too much. Love the JB!

    There was only Evasi0n and Pangu in terms of separate jailbreaks. I find the Evasi0n change log interesting however.

    1.0.7: fix problem where bundled repository package information could not be refreshed/updated by Cydia, updated bundled Cydia package lists
    1.0.6: support for iOS 7.0.6
    1.0.5: support for iOS 7.0.5
    1.0.4: security fix: kernel payload now restores sysent table, security fix: code fix for bootstrap Cydia tar files verification
    1.0.3: updated bundled Cydia, now double checking hfs modifications (for the iPad Mini Retina Cellular reboot loop issue), support for iOS 7.1beta3
    1.0.2: fix for the iPad 2 wifi reboot loop
    1.0.1: TaiG is not bundled and not installed anymore with evasi0n7 in chinese language operating systems
    2, 3, 4, and 7...

    And the battery drain that 7.1.2 jb was is gone. I have at least 25% longer now with 8.x jailbreak.
    The longer battery life could of course be related to the iOS 8.1 itself and not the new jailbreak.
    I have not experienced any issues after latest jb update. A lot of the tweaks are up and running on 8.1.
    And if u have tweaks u can't live without, just check if it's been upgraded to 8.1
    I can at least guarantee you get a longer battery life by updating.
    The longer battery life is something I experienced on all my devices.

    Hmmmm not sure which JB you used but I had nor do I have no issues with my JB. There are not a lot of cydia apps updated to support 8.1 yet but the JB is just fine...... stop spreading FUD.

    On a list with ca. 670 tweaks/apps then 428 are confirmed working, 65 partial working and 173 not working.
    I think that's shows the opposite of what you write. That is 63% of the apps/tweaks working and the jailbreaj is released 14 days ago.
    The list with 670 cydia apps is of course not complete, but it's all the important ones and a good documentation that many devs are still committed to the jb environment

    Why not just start with a fresh DFU install? It takes no more time in the long run and it eliminates issues.

    I would guess it is the download time of the Ipsw. I'm not sure but isn't the iTunes update just the addition, not the full Ipsw file?

    I read this whole thread. Usually I restore phone from iTunes, set up as new, then jailbreak and start from scratch reinstalling things one by one. I am reading how so many people restore from backup with no issues and that could save user allot of time resetting up device. There r many mentions of the process in here n I am not sure which one is the most recommended. Restore - set up as new- JB- then restore from backup or Restore iphone- then restore from backup- then JB. Does pangu team recommend one way over the other?

    Allot of talk about DFU mode restore in this thread but no links to describe how to perform that method to be certain u r getting a clean restore. Allot of posts come up with Google search but anyone from this community have the clean method on this recommended DFU restore? I just updated phone 6 to 8.1 to not loose the JB window. Was waiting on MAC version but I guess I can use work pc to jailbreak on windows.

    WoW I am in same boat as you. I have a company app that detects JB and instructs me to remove company application. I usually keep phone JB and run company app off touch and use tether all the time. Annoying but from what u r saying there is a way to fool company app of your JB device using Flex2...well when it gets updated of course.
    Can u go into more detail on how u go about that?

    DFU:

    hold sleep button for five seconds, then hold the home button while still holding the sleep button for ten seconds, then let go of the sleep button; but keep holding the home button for a further ten seconds

    Edit: your iDevice needs to be connected to your computer

    Much work and my 7.1.2 is still perfect

    I can see only page 1 (out of 4) of the comments, what's the problem with modmyi.com?
    No matter if I click page 1, 2, 3 or 4, still the same page 1 anyways...

    So... I just did this to 4 devices (iPad Air, iPhone 5/5S/6), all on iOS 8.1 and Pangu 1.2. Fresh iTunes restore, no backup restores...

    iPad and 5S/6 perfect.

    iPhone 5... Not so much. I lost almost all stock apps and gained a blank called 'PreBoard'? And Siri can't find my missing apps. Lol she just told me I don't have the App Store installed...

    Anyone else?

    Shouldn't have to have it plugged in already.

    you have to have your iDevice plugged in, or you will not get into dfu mode

    Edit: I think your thinking of recovery mode, which is different

    So for all of those that were wondering why we had recommended a full DFU restore WITHOUT restoring from a backup to jailbreak, it was simply to protect you.

    However, Saurik has updated Cydia Installer Wednesday morning to make it so you no longer have to avoid restoring from a backup. You can read more here:

    Yesterday I updated my iphone 5 to 8.1 and jailbroke it with no problem. I really like the new UI of 8.1.

    Let me get this straight…

    You're suggesting I upgrade to I OS 8, which contains maybe a couple of features I might want. Meanwhile, I get to lose all but a few of my 40 jailbreaks in iOS 7.

    Add to this the fact that the new jailbreak has been out, what, a week or so? That's not nearly enough time to get stable, especially considering we've all been advised not to use it until now. Meanwhile Apple is busy preparing yet another update to fix the things that are broken in their current release. Hmmm...

    There is a wise saying which fits this situation:
    "If it's not broke, don't fix it."
