Hi all - not seen an answer to this question yet. With all previous jailbreak upgrades I've done the following steps:

Perform full backup in iTunes

Restore to the latest version of iOS

Close iTunes

Jailbreak 

Install Cydia

Install AppSync

Reconnect iPad and open iTunes

Restore iPad

All apps (including cracked) get re-installed to iPad

Restore final tweaks via Cydia

 

However, there's no AppSync for iOS 8 (yet). If I install appcake will the app restore via iTunes work? Or do I have to manually copy over the IPSWs and install one by one?

Thanks!

You can consider AppCake as appsync for iOS 8

After you jailbreak iOS 8, install AppCake and try install one app in AppCake, if it works then you can restore your backup from iTunes

Ok I tried this... Apps installed from iTunes from the backup I took are dark/grey and when you tap them it just says 'Installing...' and nothing else. :(

Absolutely - installed appcake, downloaded and installed one app and it worked fine. Then ran the itunes restore and that's where the failures happened.

 

*EDIT* - Ok - so after running the restore I re-ran AppCake, installed another app and then ran sync. Looks like it's working this time.

Thanks! Sorry for the late reply. I'm not so sure why this forum doesn't push through to my tapatalk.

Taig is the only choice for 8.1.2
