    I love my phablet. I love it.
    However, there's just times where I just need a smaller device. Class, for example, if I want to send a message discreetly.

    However I want to update to iOS 8 but I'm still deciding; 8.1 or 8.1.1?

    Apparently, the speed increase is not good, it's just a little bump and is virtually useless.
    And I might want to jailbreak. I love f.lux, and it's amazing. I prefer to have the yellow filter all day, but there isn't a version for android.

    So taking this into consideration, which firmware should I use? 8.1/8.1.1?

    You answered your own question...if you want to jailbreak, going to 8.1.1 makes no sense.

    Why don't you just try both and decide for yourself. There is still time to experiment :)

    I just updated my iPhone 6 to 8.1.1 and re-jailbroke using today's tool. Unfortunately the first downside was on reboot, I got a popup stating that Springtomize doesn't work on this version of iOS... a big issue for me since I rely on Springtomize... bummer, guess I'm going back to 8.1 now.

    You should come back to 8.1.1 it's flawless , and Springtomize 3 just got updated for 8.1.1 !

    There's no benefit for me at this point. I have a 6, so it really doesn't fix anything, and to me I'd rather stick with the known, given there are a lot of unknowns 24 hours into a JB on 8.1.1
