Debating updating but still not sure. Running 8.1 Jailbroken.

Nope. Just a bug-fix release, all good improvements. You won't notice much of a difference except for better stability and better battery life.

You mean other than the list of bugs they introduced with this amazing all good release?

Stay with 8.1.

Too late, the idiot at the Apple Store updated it when he brought it out. I was so pissed.

It seems Apple is no longer signing 8.1. Bummer. I downgraded mine while there was still time.

You sure about that? Don't they usually mention this in the updates? I feel like they just closed the loophole for jailbreaks and some stupid thing about ringtones?

Is there anything they changed/added in 8.1.1 that you didn't like?

Iirc 8.1.1 was just performance improvements for iPad 2 and iPhone 4s (and close the jailbreak) while 8.1.2 was to fix the ringtone thing.

In either case, if the OP wants to jailbreak then just stay on 8.1. That's what I did since neither of those updates affected me in any way.

8.1.2 cured a lot of bugs on my 6+. It wasn't just the ringtone thing.

8.1.1 has really messed up my Touch ID thingy to unlock the phone. It was working flawlessly before on my 6 but now works about 50% of the time. It's so frustrating.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Ah, so I guess there was more to that update than just the ringtone fix. That might be something to consider if deciding whether to stay and jaikbreak or update.

As with 8.1.1 I'm sure the 8.1.2 jb will come out any day.
