You can't jailbreak 8.1.1, and if you "downgrade" to 8.1 (possible as of this writing), you can't use an iTunes backup made while on iOS 8.1.1. You can still download the apps from the App Store though.

Are you sure I cant jailbreak 8.1.1? But 8.1 is supported, why not 8.1.1?

That's just the way it works. Yes, I am 110% sure.

There are two ways to get your apps back. 1. sync with iTunes (if you made a back up, your apps are saved on your computer) or 2. download on device via the Apple AppStore App. Try restoring from back up in iTunes first, if that doesn't work, sync still will, or the latter method.
