    I swear if it isn't one issue with iOS 8 it's another. But as mentioned it's not allowing the device to backup over iCloud and keeps asking for the password before failing. I've tried reboots and resprings but nothing's working.
    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Here's screenshots of what it's saying.

    Oh no....I had this one when I went to 7.1.2.

    The recommended action you'll find all over the web is to go into settings, log out of icloud, log back in. Some recommend rebooting after you've logged out, but before you sign back in.

    It never worked for me, but it has for others. And near as I can tell, it's not a JB issue, as most reports were on stock devices. I ended up restoring twice; once from backup--the problem was back a couple of days later--and finally as new, no backup. That was what finally solved it for me.

    This might help for game saves: http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=20418213&postcount=3

    I haven't used it personally as the stuff I play all sounds with Game Center, etc., and the rest of my data is pretty much on Dropbox, so a clean install for me is just a time consuming nuisance, not the end of the world. But I know others have used out with success.

    Good luck! Hopefully a simple log out & back in will fix it for you.

    I'll check the link out when I get home, but I logged out and it won't let me back on. ;( Looks like this just won't work until I restore later.

    EDIT: On a positive note, I restored and it's looking like I was able to enable iCloud again so I THINK its fixed. But I enabled iCloud Photo Library (Beta) on my 6+ and 5 and heres hoping its smart I did. Looks like it deletes the iCloud Recents or whatever it was called before. Is it worth it?
