    I know that no JB has been announced for 8.0, but what are the odds that one is found that is patched in 8.0.x but works for the .0.0 release?

    Curious about health kit apps but wary in case someone finds an exploit from an early firmware release.

    Thoughts?

    There usually isn't any problems with minors updates like 8.0.x, you want to say away from big ones like 8.1

    Apple hasn't fixed any exploits yet, since none have been revealed to them. So any exploits present in 8.0 are certainly still present in 8.0.2. Not sure if you have any history of being in the jailbreak community, but if you did, you would know Apple has an abysmal record of finding and closing exploits until they are revealed to Apple. That is why the hackers take great care to never reveal any exploits to Apple except those actually used in the jailbreak.

    I was more thinking that some of the issues with the 8.0.1 release might have exposed something that was quickly closed in 8.0.2.

    Doubt it.
    They usually release a JB on the current ios that is out and signed by Apple at the moment.
