• Saurik: The iOS 8 Jailbreak is Now Stable Enough, Vendors Can Mark Tweaks Compatible



    Starting on Thursday, developers of jailbreak tweaks will now be able to mark their creations as compatible with the new iOS 8 jailbreak. Cydia creator Jay Freeman (Saurik) announced on Twitter this afternoon that he has opened the ability for Cydia vendors (iOS developers) to mark their tweaks as iOS 8-compatible, and therefore, you can now purchase them.

    Saurik notes that the jailbreak on iOS 8 is now "stable enough" for this decision to be "reasonable." Since the initial release of the Pangu jailbreak, there have been plenty of bugs with the iOS 8 jailbreak that needed to be fixed, and although the major bugs have already been fixed, it wasn't until recently that major jailbreak developers have been working to get their jailbreak tweaks ready for iOS 8 since there was no warning that an iOS 8 jailbreak was about to drop.

    With the jailbreak in its current state, Saurik thinks that it's stable enough to go ahead and upgrade to iOS 8 and go ahead with your jailbreak:



    It's a good idea to go ahead with the update as soon as possible, because pretty soon Apple will be releasing iOS 8.1.1, and it will be closing the Pangu jailbreak's exploits. A Mac OS X version of the Pangu jailbreak tool is expected to be released in a few days, although it's available for Windows right now. You can read our guide on how to jailbreak your iOS 8 device with Pangu for Windows at this link.

      Even though Saurik has given his blessing, it's up to each package owner to certify that their tweak is iOS 8 ready.

      Why iBlacklist? Simply use DND with disturbplease and you have the same deal.

      I have bought iBlacklist before but stopped trying to transfer it to my new device because of the above combo.

      Need 5 icon dock, 5 icon row for springboard updated for the 6+..... You can add them but the spacing is all wrong.

      +1, what I'm really hoping for is a remedy to the Classicdock info.plist bug where properties specified in the plist are not consistently applied.

      This is great news just get your phones jailbroken and just wait for all the goodies. By the way iblacklist is by far the best all in one call blocker. I have tried many of them and none comes close to locking out unwanted calls.

      Springtomize rocks that's for sure. If only apple can come this close for those nasty icons management.
