    Hey guys!

    I have been jailbreaking since iOS 5, but have a little question around jailbreaking iOS 8.

    Usually, I:
    1. Backup iPhone
    2. Restore/update my iPhone to factory settings
    3. Restore from backup
    4. Jailbreak

    But shall I have to do this on the new jailbreak?

    1 - Backup
    2 - Clean restore to 8.1
    3 - Ensure passcode/touch ID/find my phone is disabled.
    4 - Jailbreak (keep passcode/touch ID/find my phone is disabled).
    5 - Restore from backup

    Thanks!

    There is no point in restoring to factory settings if you then restore from a backup afterwards, FYI.

    My process was...

    Updated to 8.1 via iTunes.
    Disabled touchid/passcode/find my phone, placed phone in ap mode
    Jailbreak

    I didn't reset it, restore it, etc.
