Thank you for the Link.

As with other previous chatter I'll be watching.

Currently on iOS 8.1.2 Jail Broken and content.

Hope this comes to fruition for those patiently waiting.

Awesome news!
Question: can we wait till iOS 8.4 is released to update our jailbroken devices to iOS 8.3? I mean, how long is the frame open that let's us do this? Because I only want to update when Pangu actually releases the jailbreak, after the WWDC.

Well, in a first few days after the release of 8.4, most probably, Apple will still be signing 8.3, so that shouldn't be a problem. But, what I don't understand is, why would you update to 8.3, when 8.4 is there ???

Sigh. This was so long in coming that now it's anti-climatic for me. While waiting, I ended up with a new phone that has 8.1.2 (which I promptly jailbroke).

So, now, my old 5 which I wiped and restored as new to 8.3 no longer has cell service. I will still jailbreak it when this comes out but for me the wait ended over a week ago.

Depends on if the jailbreak supports the latest OS. I would assume Apple plans to release 8.4 then as well and who knows how long the signing window will be open for 8.3. Of course they're going to need to test it on the final version of 8.4 so I'd probably hold off on any sort of updating until an actual tool is released (if at all.)

The music app is diferent. Thats the reason im staying on 8.3 instead of updating.

I have never really jailbroken my device before. I had my iPhone 5 for a few months and never really decided and didn't like jailbreaking. I just want to customize my device. I'll be watching this thread.

If 8.4 is jailbreakable I'm swinging over to the Apple Store to pick up a 6+

Exciting times ahead for you then.

If you haven't already then I'd suggest doing a little bit of homework on Jail Breaking , some popular tweaks and theming etc.

Also on what to do if something glitches.

Don't know what to work on.
What he's meaning, is think about what problems or issues a stock iPhone presents to you that you would like jailbreaking to solve. Once you know what problems it is that you want jailbreaking to solve you can look for tweaks that will solve the problem.

Once you have a list of tweaks you want you may wish to see if Google tells you there are any conflicts between them. Once you're jailbroken then you have your list and you know which ones you can/can't install.

That is preferable to just installing anything you see on Cydia without knowing anything about it. Lots of jailbreaks have been lost because a common newbie jailbreaker mistake is to just install stuff without thinking about it.

Cydia is not like the app store where Apple vettes things for you. You have to do your own checking to make sure things aren't going to mess your device up. And lots of old tweaks and apps remain on Cydia for every version of iOS. That's because there are still people jailbroken on old versions of iOS. Not every tweak will run on new versions of iOS and I've seen some old tweaks completely mess things up for people.

I really hope they release a JB tomorrow. I didn't realize how much I utilized my tweaks until having to use my phone on 8.1.3 after swapping it at the Apple Store.

Most likely. I'm assuming the jailbreak will be released shortly after the release of 8.4, which is will be within the next 2-3 weeks.

We'll be able to jailbreak before 4th of July weekend, I can feel it.
