    Would this be a record time for a public jailbreak release for a new iOS/device release? I for one thought it would be several more months, if ever.

    It's not a record, but it's the fastest one we've seen since the iPhone 4. The first few iPhones only took a couple weeks, but the past few have taken several months. It's pretty nice to see that trend change. I can't wait to get my 6 jailbroken! (y)

    ...the one main option I would like Apple to offer is no 'block' around the main icons at the bottom of the screen.
    This would make wallpapers fit and look so much nice. Is that too much to ask?

    I use DockShift (jailbreak tweak) to make the dock transparent. The docks were pretty nice on iOS 6 and earlier, but I really dislike what Apple has done to it on iOS 7 and 8.

    If you remember back in 2009, the Dev Team was holding out on launching a working 3.0 jailbreak they had because of a new signing structure Apple implemented that year. They said the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few. We would have waited months, but Geohot swooped in and launched his own jailbreak (purplera1n) because he thought that was BS. He was right - it made no difference in the long run, so why make people wait? We had plenty of new jailbreaks come out that year after Apple patched the exploits. It's always been this way. There is always another firmware around the corner, whether it be scheduled or pushed to break the jailbreak. No pointing on holding out. The hackers will find new exploits. Kudos for the Chinese for not making us wait and for breaking the four-month trend. It's kinda hard to be an advocate for jailbreaking when the damned thing is only available for half the year.

    Here's a quote from Geohot in 2009.
    "Normally I don’t make tools for the general public, and rather wait for the dev team to do it. But guys, whats up with waiting until 3.1? That isn’t how the game is played. We release, Apple fixes, we find new holes. It isn’t worth waiting because you might have the “last” hole in the iPhone. What last hole…this isn’t golf. I’ll find a new one next week..." -Geohot 2009.

    I definitely remember that one. Wasn't that the Jailbreak via a website he set up? That was the best ever. :)

    No, that was jailbreakme.com the following year for the iPhone 4. I loved that one. Slide to jailbreak! (y)

    Another development I'm looking for is a better implementation of reachability by the jailbreak devs

    FakeClockUp works pretty well on iOS 8.1. iFile has been updated and is compatible. Purchases are still disabled on Cydia for now.

    AHHHH I can't wait...but I would assume a Mac version won't be released. If not, then @Napoleon PhoneApart I'll need a step by step guide from you over the phone, i do better hearing directions!

    Not me. When Pangu removes the child-proof cap and allows you to jailbreak, you're on your own.

    I mean if a Mac version isn't released, I'll need your phone support to use parallels. I have a feeling you'll help a brotha out.

    I ain't your "brotha." I learned about this stuff by researching (Google) and trial and error. This'll be a good experience for you. :) There's no satisfaction like that gained by your own work.
