Hello iOS 8!

With the release of iOS 8 we have a few new features (and opportunities). Apple has closed some important kernel exploits that have been and could have been used for future jailbreaks. They’ve also effectively made local restores virtually impossible. That doesn’t mean ‘game over’ but it definitely will make local restores unlikely in the near future. Until then it can’t hurt to save the APTickets on the new firmware as an exploit may be found in the future. It’s better to have them and not need them than to need them and not have them!
