Normally, we would warn users not to accidentally update to the current firmware version, but thanks to a surprising release, we already have a jailbreak of iOS 8.1.1.
TaiG has released a jailbreak utility for iOS 8.1.1 that works on Windows. We hope to see a Mac OS X version soon; however, since a beta of iOS 8.2 has already been seeded, we suggest you update to iOS 8.1.1 and jailbreak as soon as possible.
You can find instructions on how to jailbreak your device using the iClarified Jailbreak Wizard.
