    My girlfriend has been nagging me about how she wants to be able to do the cool stuff I can do with my jailbroken 5S, on her phone too. But she has simultaneously been blowing off updating her phone, because it's a nusiance. She's on 7.1 right now, and I said she needs to update soon before they patch up the jailbreak. Anyone know if 8.1.1 has done that? If so, what is the likelyhood they'll jailbreak 8.1.1 within the next few weeks?

    I know she can always jailbreak straight from 7.1, but I'm just trying to get her the latest software before jailbreaking and having her stuck for a while. She has a 5 btw.

    Yes, its well known for weeks now that 8.1.1 patches the current JB. But you should wait a little longer...

    Wouldn't I want to hurry rather than wait...since 8.1 will stop being signed soon. Unless that was just terrible sarcasm on your part.

    "..." at the end typically denotes sarcasm in the previous statement.

    Yes, just sarcasm towards people that keep waiting till last second.
    And then soon that the signing window closes we will get threads like How can I downgrade to 8.1 :D

    Lol I'm aware. I've been pushing it for a couple weeks now, but she keeps not doing it, so wanted a more specific time frame.

    Tell her to do it right now before she does her hair or nails today:D
    And no one will be able to give you a specific time frame. It could close any minute now.

    I wish there were a way to save current packages for later use. I'd save like fifteen 8.1 signed packages to ensure I'm always jailbroke... Or sell them to last-minuters.

    Like they say you snooze you loose! Looks like she will just have to wait till Pangu cracks 8.1.1--she waited this long whats another week, month, year

    Yeah, I just don't know if they're going to jailbreak 8.1.1. It took envasi0n a while to jailbreak 7.1, and I don't think they made any other breaks after that.

    Damn, I missed the window:( I wanted to confirm a sale of my old iPad first before I looked at ordering the new air 2. On the plus side I have a buyer now which is good.

    Oh well, at least my iPhone 6 is jailbroken , I just see more benefits with a JB on my iPad.

    Pangu is not going to jailbreak 8.1.1, but 8.1.1 only patches 3/7 exploits needed to complete the jailbreak

    Most likely if you buy an iPad in the next few days you'll get one with 8 not 8.1.1 as the iPad you buy will have been produced and shipped before the update. But the quicker you buy the better.

    Does this mean if we want to keep JB then do not update to 8.1.1?

    If you try to restore to 8.1 and it isn't being signed still will it just give you an error or will it restore to 8.1.1? I'll try it if won't restore to 8.1.1 if 8.1 fails.
