    you need to use iTunes to restore phone which will also update to the latest firmware than you need to re-jailbreak 8.1.1 using Taig

    cant be done via ota.. Jailbreaking breaks the connection with Apple. Hence no OTA. You have to download 8.1.1 ipsw from internet and then click on Shift + update for windows and choose the file you have downloaded and let the process ends and voila you're on iOS 8.1.1:apple:

    yes you will loose all tweaks and jailbreak when your restore, you can just use iTunes to do the restore, you only have to do what the other poster said if you want an older firmware still being signed, if you want the current apple firmware just use restore in iTunes

    Obviously not.
    You can never update a JB device OTA or any other way to update ios version and keep the JB and everything else you have on it.
    That's JB 101.
    You plug it to itunes and restore it. Then JB again and then install all your hacks back and sync your items with itunes.
    There is no saving time tricks or cutting corners.
    You either follow directions or stay stock instead.

    use my first post

    plug into iTunes on you computer and click on the device tab, than hit restore

    now you will have 8.1.1 no just use Taig to jailbreak and do all the same things you did on 8.1 in cydia to get your tweaks back

    No.
    We said restore 100 times.
    Not update.
    Hit cancel on the Pop up.
    Then plug in to iTunes and hit RESTORE.
    11 posts later telling you the same thing and you still don't get it?
    Restore.
