    I'm wondering if I can still update to 8.1.2 and jailbreak? If not did the latest firmware break the jailbreak?

    I too was wondering, it seems they have fixed some major issues with this update,
    (spotlight, iMessage and FaceTime bugs) it would be worth the upgrade...

    But preserving the jailbreak seems more worthwhile

    Care to share why do you still jailbreak? Personally, aside for speeding up animations or perhaps adding more toggles to CC, I don't find it useful anymore.

    Thanks!

    If my iTunes still says to update to 8.1.2 for my device think I can get away with not upgrading to 8.1.3 YET since I didnt jailbreak yet and am on the older jailbroken firmware?

    Exactly for those reasons,

    Speeding up animations, after using noslowanimations, i find iOS to be so delayed.

    Auxo, i like to close all my apps at once

    also type status lets me see when people are typing on the top bar even when I'm not in messages.

    Location spoofer is fun to mess with friends also.

    Customization is my reason. I cant stand stock iOS icons, so I use plenty of themes. Also the icon layout on the ipad is pretty low, (4x4 or 4x5 - i cant even remember anymore) I use springtomize to do a 6x6 layout on the iPad and an 8 x 8 layout on the 6+ with reduced icon sizes. Safehouse pro to not require an unlock password when Im home and vintagekeys for aesthetics.

    I hate to bring it up, but I had less of a reason to jailbreak on iOS6.

    There is no way to know how long Apple will keep signing 8.1.2. Signing windows have been left open from as little as a few hours to as long as a two weeks after a new firmware is released. Given this update was tested internally for quite a while, I would bet Apple stops signing 8.1.2 sooner rather than later. As to whether it's worth the hassle of updating, that's up to you. But I wouldn't wait too long to make your decision.

    This tweak sounds awesome so does it detect when youre on your wifi at home and entirely skips the passcode? Im guessing this isnt for those with TouchID devices would it skip that process as well and go straight to our homescreen?
    I knew I should have did my update to 8.1.2 last night. I tried to just update since it still said 8.1.2 but nope they stopped signing it wanted to update me straight to 8.1.3. :mad:

    Now we need to find out if the jailbreak still works but highly doubt it

    As of this moment, Apple is still signing 8.1.2, but you have to manually download the ipsw and do a shift+restore and select the 8.1.2 ipsw.

    I'm guessing based on some of the stuff listed here http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204245 that it has been patched, since it references a few things from Taig and from Pangu. Hopefully they have a few more tricks up their sleeve if it is the case.

    Looks like 8.1.3 kills the jailbreak. The Apple security article MuscleNerd points to mentions several bugs from both the Pangu and Taig jailbreaks. Get to. 8.1.2 while you still can!

    Kills the jailbreak and doesn't fix the biggest bugs, such as wifi drops/sluggishness and third party keyboard problems. For pity's sake, Apple, if you truly want us to stop jailbreaking, start fixing this pile of ____ called iOS 8.

    Be interesting to see if Taig or Pangu burns more exploits to JB 8.1.3, or if they do the sensible thing and wait for the release of 8.2.

    Interesting, that I've tried 8.0, 8.0.2, and 8.1.2 on my 4S, and have not encountered a single WiFi drop. Sluggishness, yes, but that is a given, since the 4S is at the bottom of the barrel now. I expect that. But no WiFi issues for me at all.

    Good question. But they are/were being paid for it, so who knows..

    Yup! You declare which wifis are "safe" in the settings, and anytime youre connected it bypasses passwords. Actually it is also for devices with touchID. Im currently using it on my iPad Air 2! Its a very handy tweak, especially if you have a smart cover with a password enabled.

    Go to idownloadblog.com. They should have the firmware in the downloads section.

    The wifi bug(s) are definitely interesting this round. They don't affect everyone, they don't all track back to a single cause, and there's not an obvious, easily replicated pattern to them. So I do get that they probably aren't easy to fix.

    But if you're affected by them, they're absolutely bugs that should be classed as showstoppers. Clean, set up as new installs don't fix them. They're there stock or jailbroken--the difference being that jailbroken, you have the option of using WiFried, which does help some folks even on 8.1.2. Some people have gone as far as replacing their routers, with mixed results.

    I have them on both the 6 and the rMini. They're worse on the iPad. And they happen regardless of what wifi I'm on. At least with WiFried and the bits Apple did manage to fix on 8.1.2, the Mini went from "totally unusable" to "damn, this is annoying". But this is a device that had no wifi issues at all on 7.1.2. And my iphone 5, which is still on 7.1.2, continues to not have a problem. Even my original iPad, stuck at 5.1.1, doesn't drop its connection the way the iOS 8 devices do. It's pretty sad when a five year old device outperforms the brand new ones!

    Thanks but pretty sure at this point they stopped signing it. I'll just stick with the jailbroken firmware I'm on right now which was the last Mac tool forget which one.

    VirtualHome
    iCleaner
    Bloard
    WiFried

    f.lux alone is an absolutely critical reason to jailbreak.

    As of right now, 8.1.2 is still being signed according to ipsw.me. There's still time to upgrade if you want.

    Maybe it's just me, but my air 2 can no longer install apps using the provisioning profile trick since updating to 8.1.3.

    Ugh. I'm having huge problems with my phone. Can someone tell me which of these I should be downloading for my Sprint 5S? I thought it would be iPhone6,2_8.1.2_12B440_Restore.ipsw for 5s GSM+CDMA, but when I try to restore from that, it tells me it isn't compatible. My phone has been messed up for the past couple days (11GB of "other" leaving no room for my music) and I need to get this fixed before Apple stops signing.

    Using Sprint Verizon or AT&T is not the issue with ipsw compatibilty.
    Check the model number at the back of your 5S. It should start with A and report it to me. I'll give you the link to the correct ipsw.

    Well, if it's not 6,2 than 6,1 is the one you need.
