It’s hardly been two weeks since the release of the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 and Apple have already patched the exploit. That was pretty quick. According to a member of the Pangu team, the recently released iOS 8.1.1 beta 1 patches an exploit used by the Pangu jailbreak.
Daniel_K4, who claims to be the member of the Pangu Team, posted on Weibo, that iOS 8.1.1 beta 1 has patched the exploit Pangu uses to jailbreak iOS 8. If that is true, it means that once Apple releases iOS 8.1.1, the Pangu jailbreak will no longer work.
Apple has released iOS 8.1.1 beta to developers. After our tests, it has patched the jailbreak exploit. Anyone who wish to jailbreak, please seize the chance to upgrade to iOS 8.1 and do so before Apple officially releases iOS 8.1.1.
The Pangu Team hasn’t given any confirmation for this, so we’re not entirely sure if this is true. They could have other exploits waiting, which could be used to get another jailbreak. If it happens to be true, then your only chance of enjoying a jailbreak is to do it before Apple releases iOS 8.1.1 to the public.
You can update to iOS 8.1 right now and jailbreak using the Pangu tool and stay away from iOS 8.1.1. We’ll let you know of any development.
Apparently I am the only one who isn;t able to jailbreak my Iphone 5 on iOS 8.1 (and yes, it’s in flight mode, and yes, no find my phone, even iCloud completely removed, nut at stage 4 programs reports errors. :-(

You need to install iOS 8.1 from iTunes not OTA or else it won’t work ! Hope this helped.

Here’s another great way to watch or download movies on your iOS device. I been using the “bigU Movies” app from Cydia lately and it has NO popups ads or advertisements. I suggest trying this awesome “bigU Movies” app by going to Cydia and you can get it from the xsellize repo, insanelyi repo, Zeusmos or Appcake. They also have the movie Interstellar, Nightcrawler, John Wick, Ouija, Horns, Fury, Gone Girl, Annabelle, The Book of Life and The Equalizer.
