    Hey

    I'm doing this for the first time, although I have some idea about how its done. Here is the situation:

    I'm on iPad Mini 16 GB with iOS 6.x Untethered

    I want to update to iOS 8.1 Untethered

    The problem:

    1. I do not want to lose my music on the iPad
    2. If I restore using iTunes and then update, I'll have no option but to go to iOS 8.2. Is it possible to then return to iOS 8.1 jailbreak ?

    3. Fastest way to do that?

    As far as I'm aware if you update you'll be moved to ios 8.2 and be stuck on stock , lose your jailbreak with no option to downgrade ios and then have to wait until a new jailbreak tool is out.

    Any reason to want to move from where you are at present ?

    Apps not working and tired of iOS 6

    Possible to upgrade only to iOS 8.1 and not 8.2 - probably with Pangu tool?

    Ah I see.

    And No I'm afraid it's just not possible to move to iOS 8.2 and then down to iOS 8.1.2 etc

    Once  stops signing off an iOS its not possible to move backwards.

    Nope it's not possible. You are SOL.
