How to jailbreak iOS 8

In this post, I show you how easy it is to jailbreak iOS 8. It took me less than 5 minutes and works with any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 8.

Before jailbreaking: back up the iPhone

Jailbreaking might be a piece of cake, but it doesn't mean that the process is error-proof. Better be safe than sorry, back up your iPhone or iPad with iTunes or iCloud before jailbreaking.

If you are not a fan of iTunes or simply wish to have an extra safety net, I'd advise you to also use the free CopyTrans Shelbee to back up the iPhone. CopyTrans Shelbee works without the need for iTunes and backs up iPhone apps, app information, iOS settings, messages, contacts, calendars and Camera Roll. Download CopyTrans Shelbee from the below link:

Let's jailbreak!
