    Hi guys,

    A few days ago, I jailbroke my iPad mini 2, and I installed winter board, but it caused a boot loop, and I couldn't load spring board for hours, so I restored. It's been about a week I believe. Do you know if it's fixed now? I'm really afraid now installing tweaks because I might get boot loop again, and I hate restoring (it took 8 hours last time downloading software due to apple server strangely being extremely slow). I don't want to try installing winter board myself again. But some of you might try it for the first time, and if so, did you successfully install it on iOS 8.1 jailbroken device? BTW, I also some other people's comments that they also experienced boot loop right after installing winter board. So it wasn't just me.

    I had mine on a boot loop, had re uninstall. I have since reinstalled, not sure if it's the same version or not. It kind of works, doesn't crash or anything, but I'm not sure its "working" yet. Its not actually doing anything its supposed to.

    Thanks guys. I guess it used to boot loop when iOS 8.1 was first jailbroken, but it must be fixed now. If there are any themes that works on 8.1, please do share! I want to change my iPad mini 2 icons so bad haha

    I never had SB enabled. Every time I used a theme or anything involving WB my phone crashes to Safe mode. At one point it was every 15 minutes. I still have it installed but don't use it for anything and the crashes are down to about 1 per day. I really wish Saurik would update this.

    I'm using winterboard with the flat ios theme on iPhone 5 without issues.
