The Pangu8 jailbreak for iOS 8 / 8.1 came as a big surprise for the jailbreak community, but with a lot of complexities as well. One of those complexities was missing Cydia after jailbreaking our devices. Even though Saurik updated Cydia to work with iOS 8 / 8.1, the installation method was completely manual, and still remains so at least as of this writing.

This week has seen the very first jailbreak released for the new iOS 8 – 8.1 firmware, and whereas, ordinarily, the process of using a jailbreak tool is fairly simple to the end user, the decision of Chinese team Pangu to roll its exploit out so early has left a trail of compatibility issues.

But while that particular episode appears to have blown over, another more serious issue seems to be cropping up. It pertains to the 128GB iPhone 6 Plus, with many units crashing continuously, often leaving users in an infinite reboot loop, and while Apple has been replacing a number of afflicted handsets, some owners are already on their fourth unit.

The same concept that was massively popular on computers, never really caught on on the cellular world.
