iOS 8 was officially released to the public yesterday afternoon
Some of you opted to stay on iOS 7 so that you could have a jailbroken device; although, those of you that upgraded to iOS 8 no longer have a jailbreak at this point in time. Luckily, the Pangu jailbreak team has indicated on their Weibo account that they "have been on the road" of working on an iOS 8 jailbreak:
Because the translation is a little sloppy, we can make out that the team was warning those staying on iOS 7.1.2 to grab their jailbreak before iOS 8 is released. We also recommended the same thing just one day before the release. The message also notes that all devices except for the iPhone 4 will be able to ditch iOS 7.1.2 for iOS 8.
Because the message appears to have been posted before the release of iOS 8 to the public, the team has likely been experimenting with the beta and GM releases throughout the Summer to see what they have to work with. Now, with a public release in hand, they can officially begin their work.
Hopefully those of you that are happily jailbroken on iOS 7 were able to resist yesterday's urge to upgrade to iOS 8, because now that the firmware is out, there's no restoring to iOS 7.1.2 and re-jailbreaking anymore (as MuscleNerd warned yesterday). Those of you that just couldn't wait for iOS 8 and want your jailbreak back will have to wait on the Pangu jailbreak team (or any other jailbreak team out there) to release the iOS 8 jailbreak, if they can.
