IOS 8 jailbreak now stable

Saurik tweeted that its stable now and Cydia is finally allowing payments for the few tweaks that I would buy.

My 6+ has been JB for about a week with no issues. Running Activator, homescreendesigner, Iblank, pandora skips, ITunes radio unlimited. Fake carrier and Icon renamer for now. My IPhone 6+ is now complete and I will be happy until the 6+s comes out next year

No negative effects on battery life either, I finally charged my phone last night after 3 days and 13 hours off charge. That is a first ever for me and an iPhone.

I've been checking in only occasionally. Did they package the jailbreak with Cydia?

My 6 will be here Monday so I'll wait until then at least.

Yea they did that a little earlier, I'm about a week in and mine had Cydia. It's sad we had to wait so long (40 days) for our phones to get here that a JB was already available.

I've had JB since day 2 of release of Pangu and never had any issues. My current tweaks are:

Activator
Bars (better representation of signal)
Browser Changer (using Mercury)
CCSettings (adds additional toggles to Control Center)
Detailed Battery Usage
FREEdi
HideMe8 Lite
iFile
MapsOpener
MovieBox 3
NoTracking
Pandora Downloader
PandoraSkips
SaveGram
SBFlip (allows Springboard rotation on iPhone 6)
Slide2Kill8 Lite (replaces Purge to kill all apps)
Unlimited ItunesRadio Skips 8
Untethered Hey Siri
XBMC
Zepplin

Untethered Hey Siri adds a little battery drain but nothing too terrible.

I have a 4S still running 7.1.1. I'm not updating to 8.1, because so many of my tweaks have not been updated.

Once Gridlock is updated, I might consider it. I probably have over 100 tweaks and 183 apps on my phone and it's a PITA to upgrade and reinstall.

I wondered how that would do on battery, seems the mic would always be on? I can go 3 days on battery but I'm not one to mind to charge it every night, it just sits beside me on the night stand anyway.

Im afraid Gridlock may never be updated, I emailed him a week ago, never got a response. Seemed he quit on it after a certain 7.??. A possibly better alternative is homescreendesigner, I installed it on my 6+ last night and my IPad Air this morning. It takes a bit of thought on what you want but every screen can be different. Its not perfect but I'm very happy with it.

I guess it's "always on" but sometimes she never responds unless the screen is on, so at that point I just hold the button. Only one time has it woke up when not prompted. I'll probably turn it since I rarely use it anyways.

My wife's 4S (running 8.0.2 at the time) woke up all the time and it was stock.


Only other tweaks I want is GridLock and Infinidock (or something similar so I can add a 5th icon to the dock.)

ETA
Ooops quick google turns up

betterFiveIconDock
also betterFiveColumnhomescreen from same repo.

Yea, I emailed him, too but didn't get an answer. I've been using iblank and that gives me look I want.
