    Didn't realize you get screwed by doing it OTA... I won't now in the future. But does this screw me? Or nothing major since it was a smaller release? HOPING!!!

    Because there isn't a JB out yet, it's hard to say. Likely, you will want to have performed a full upgrade or restore through iTunes. However, you can just DFU restore to whichever version of iOS is out at that time. A JB is almost never released for a firmware not currently being signed at that time.

    Not sure why you posted this in the jailbreak section as there isn't a jailbreak for IOS 8.0 yet.

    No, the jailbreak is going to take at least another three months. iOS 8 has to mature a bit first, and the new iPads have to be in people's hands. Don't worry too much about it and continue to update your device.

    Not necessarily 3 months, unless you know something we all don't. It varies from year to year, but I do agree that updating normally is fine.

    Its no big deal, you can always restore your phone via itunes for the "restore upgrade" in a sense. Because no JB is out yet, it cannot be clarified one way or another. But in the past, youd have to upgrade via iTunes for the JB to work properly. Either way, its not like youre doomed, even if you do an OTA upgrade, you can always do a restore via iTunes to resolve this if required by the JB.

    I think 8.0.2 is OK, but I would not upgrade if there were a 8.1 available.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Once there is a JB you can just restore via itunes and then JB it.

    I honestly did not know that it was better to update through itunes for a jailbreak. I updated my 5s OTA to 7.1.2 then jailbroke using pangu a few weeks ago and everything has been fine. In the future I will never update OTA again.

    This was only a problem with a prior Jailbreak. The last jailbreak, Pangu, worked fine with OTA updated devices (I jailbroke 5 devices that had been OTA updated, all working well). This misinformation keeps being spread. When the iOS8 jailbreak is finally released, we will then know if it is compatible with OTA updated devices, and if it's not, all you have to do is reinstall the OS with iTunes.

    Bottomline, this really is a nonissue, and we shouldn't be fretting over it at this time.
