    okay so I have iphone 5s IOS 7.0.3 Jailbroken and I would love to upgrade it to IOS 8 or worst case scenario IOS 9.0.1
    The reason for that is because I cant live without a jailbreak and itunes latest update doesnt allow jailbreaking yet.
    So my question is, is it possible to "semi-update" from ios7 to ios8?
    and if so, how can I do that?
    and if not, what would you suggest? Other than updating to the latest IOS and waiting for the jailbreak to come out (which could take months -.-)

    I tried doing this in the past, and was not successful, I do not know why but I always got an error.

    If you want to try it out on your own risk, go to this link to ios 8.3. I think that was one of the last iOS before the watch came, and before they messed with the music app. You can go up to 9.0.2 I believe, so if you search within the link you can get whichever version you like.

    Again do this at your own risk, if the update does not work you might be forced to go to the newest version. I definitely would not want to wait for a new jailbreak as nobody knows the current status.

    You can't..... Stay on 7 until the new jb is released..... Then update and rejailbreak..... There are no other options.
