This is my first JB and I know there are some steps before doing so but I want to know if it's possible to bypass couple steps. So I downloaded the latest untethered version of Pangu8 and also iTunes on my PC. I tried backing up via iTunes lastnight in case something happens in the process but my God it took so freaking long, I woke up this morning and it was still backing up so I just canceled it. I also tried backing up via iCloud but that also dragged. Keep in my mind that my internet service sucks (att) so my wifi is a bit choppy so maybe that's why it's taking so long. So my question to that, can I just skip the backing up process? Has anyone JB successfully without backing up? Also, I updated a few weeks ago to 8.1 OTA, would I really have to restore to a fresh iTunes version of 8.1 for JB to work or can I skip that process as well? Sorry for the noobieness, I just want to jailbreak and have fun. Thanks in advance.
