    Hello,
    I cannot remember if i upgraded via OTA or itunes when I upgraded to 8.1. what is the best method to jailbreak my phone using my macbook? I recently did a restore from a backup of 8.1 via itunes.

    Thank you.

    There a Mac version on pangu 's site. Just download it and run. It tells you everything you need to do as you go.

    The entire process literally takes two minutes.

    I updated to 8.1 with iTunes then set up as new. Ran pangu then restored from a backup wth iTunes. Then installed the cydia tweaks I wanted.

    have you been able to reboot?(slide to power off)

    that cause me to freeze on the apple logo

    does not freeze if I do not restore from a backup after jailbreaking

    I've not tried to be honest. I never turn my phone off.

    How do you get your phone to switch back on?

    You would have to put phone in dfu mode and restore of you get stuck at Apple logo so I would not test just to test but I was curious if you had rebooted

    My iPhone 6 came with 8.1. Should I have to restore to 8.1 again or just jailbreak from there?

    You shouldn't have to, but it won't hurt to play it safe and do so...unless you're in a rush.

    I wss under the impression that after you jailbreak, if you do a restore from itunes, you lose the jailbreak

    Restore from backup and itunes restore are 2 different things.
    What the restore from backup does is copies over your info and settings to the phone such as contacts, texts, email accounts, pictures etc....
    iTunes restore restores the phone to the latest stock iOS version.

    I have learned from trial and error, if you plan on using a restored backup

    backup, restore to clean, jailbreak, restore from backup than launch cydia

    I was lunching cydia first and than restoring from back and it was causing boot freezing after a power down
