As a heads up, Pangu team has just released their iOS 8 jailbreak usable for all devices to-date.

http://pangu.io/

Saurik is currently working on making Cydia iOS 8 compatible.

UPDATE 10/22 7:30am PT from saurik via reddit.com: I've given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I've also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository...

*Warning* This is meant as an update only. Installation is not recommended until its reliability has been determined.

Update 11/1
http://en.pangu.io/

English version with cydia bundled released by pangu team(VERSION 1.1.0).This is the latest stable end user JB.


-----------------------------------------------------------

Please try to keep this updated - this will move VERY fast...


This will give people on iOS 8.x.x SSH access so they may begin work on JB packages aka software. This is by no means complete, and even Saurik (the guy who makes Cydia) is NOT prepared for this yet. He's working on it now, but wasn't before...

Follow these instructions to install Cydia http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-...jailbreak/

UPDATE 10/22 7:30am PT from saurik via reddit.com: I've given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak.

The latest will always be put here, or here [redmondpie.com]...

This release is aimed at developers so they can update their JB apps; until Saurik updates Cydia to work on iOS 8, the jailbreak is unusable for the majority of users.

It actually isn't fake - it's been confirmed by quite a few 'top level' guys, but it's only for 8.0.2 and is NOT what people traditionally call a jailbreak, it's more or less a backdoor maker for developers that may or may not have 'accidentally' been leaked... Smilie

This may be true, but it appears that this rendition of the software works for iOS 8.1.

Lots of stuff. T9 dialing, default browser as chrome, dialing from chrome, downloading files from browser, and many other things android users take for granted (I just switched to ios and I'm not happy about those few things).
