Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

How to fix some mysterious problems.

Last time I saw a tool which claims to replace iTunes without restrictions (or whatever). It also has some filesystem access (I believe full access to "var/mobile") to non-jailbroken devices which is pretty useful in some cases.

It seems somewhat useful to me that saving .ipa files directly from the device.

However, it's done by Chinese people and I couldn't make sure that it is safe. What are your opinions?

I didn't say it has root access. And yes, it can modify the files but not all.
