    As of today, iOS 8.1.1 is still being signed by Apple, so you could upgrade to it.

    However, TaiG has just released an update to their jailbreak tool and it now can jailbreak iOS 8.1.2.

    I'd recommend iOS 8.1.2 because it's the latest and greatest iOS on the street.

    And, I too miss SBSettings. However, there are a LOT of tweaks that utilize the Control Center quite well. I have CCSettings and QuickActivator. Together, these two tweaks make it so that I have not thought of or missed SBSettings since my upgrade. May be worth researching?

    Edited to add: And, A. Goodwin - glad to see you had no issues with the iPhone and jailbreaking it. Now - come on, join the darkside and jailbreak that iPad. ;)

    Well I idid it, not going to say the hate word, yet every time I try to download anything from cydia description of pkg is missing. Also all apps are running very slow. Gonna hope for the best! Thx for the info. Tho upgradingto iOS 8.1.2 took forever. Jailbreak was quick. I am sure it is all my fault for messing something up! So appreciate your input!
    Thx

    How come I end up at a site trying to have me download some cloud storage? I want the Taig-files, since I've just upgraded to 8.1.2...

    [EDIT] Ok, I found the files elsewhere. Only to find it's Windows only. And, of course(?), the only thing available for a week or so longer is Mac... Aaaaaaarrrrgh! [/EDIT]

    What version of iTunes are you running [on what type of computer]? Evidently, iTunes 12.1 has been updated to run 64-bit. But, this update makes it so the current jailbreak tools won't work.

    The only solution I have seen (if you have iTunes 12.1 installed) is to fully uninstall it and re-install iTunes 12.0.x. Then, the jailbreak tool will work.

    See this thread for more details on the uninstall process (to iclude direct downloads of the iTunes 12.0 .exe file): http://www.ipadforums.net/posts/1092460/
