    So, there is an actual workaround for this. Back everything up, and then sidegrade your phone (upgrade to the same firmware) to start fresh. Put your phone in airplane mode, and then jailbreak with Pangu. Download OpenSSH through the Pangu app and download these two files: http://www5.zippyshare.com/v/93390044/file.html

    Then SSH into your phone and place those files in var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (if you don't have that directory, make them) and then reboot your phone twice. You will see the Cydia icon. DO NOT click on it yet. SSH into your phone again and navigate to /usr/libexec/cydia and delete "move.sh" and replace it with this one: http://www40.zippyshare.com/v/90456233/file.html

    Once you SSH the new move.sh into the old one's location, finally navigate to /User/Library/Caches/LaunchServices-XXX.cssstore (the XXX will be 3 random numbers) and delete this file. It will make a new one when you reboot.

    Finally, reboot and open Cydia. Let it prepare, and then when it reboots enable your passcode.

    Enjoy. You will almost 100% certainly have to sidegrade/rejailbreak when an upgrade comes out for Cydia but who knows how long that will be.

    It should. The reddit thread for the person who discovered this is ab interesting read, and points out some very interesting things about the jailbreak on iOS 8. New security measures may make jailbreaking as we know it a bit more limited, or it may compromise some of the new security features.

    Nice.
    Hope they package all that stuff together with cydia for a simple and dumbproof way to JB the new iOS.

    It would be nice, however its a tiny bit worrisome as the best, most concise way to fix this is actually not even possible :/

    Now you're making me worry:D
    You don't think they will be able to find solutions for many early bugs and issues with the new ios 8 JB?

    Oh there will be solutions found I am positive. Jay Freeman is a brilliant mind, alongside Pangu they will find a quick solution. It just sucks that the best solution (edit the iBoot to stop throwing errors if /usr/; et al. is moved) isn't actually possible :/

    Given the fact that the corporate Outlook accounts forces passcode security, I feel I'm stuck until this is resolved with the Pangu packaging. Hoping they are truly trying to fix this, and I'm sure it's a priority.

    The passcode issues have been fixed since 0.3. Pangu just released their 0.4 untether recently that also fixes 32 bit safari stability.

    It's not 100% fixed. You can still get stuck if you jailbreak in this order:
    1) Install iOS 8.1
    2) jailbreak
    3) open Cydia
    4) restore from backup

    Instead, you should do this (I just did this with my 5s):
    1) Install iOS 8.1
    2) jailbreak
    3) restore from backup
    4) open Cydia

    If you've already done it the first way, all hope is not lost. Do not reboot your device yet. Follow this:
