As you may know, the release does not include Cydia and is very unstable. Despite the numerous tutorials that have popped up on other sites, we strongly recommend that unless you're a developer, you hold off until a safe version is released, at which point iClarified will post tutorials.
The PanguTeam has confirmed to iClarified that it is hard at work trying to resolve bugs with the jailbreak. Here's the latest status update from the team:
We are working with @saurik to make Cydia stable asap. Also we are fixing bugs include Safari and iMessage problems. Please wait ...
To prepare you device for the upcoming release, you can restore or update to iOS 8.1 using iTunes; rather than a software update.
Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
