Update: Saurik recognizes this launch and is now working with Cydia and Substrate compatibility for iOS 8. From Reddit:

So, windknown has contacted me, about a half hr ago, through e-mail. He has informed me among the issues that is keeping Substrate from functioning on the device, which will most likely need me to develop a little binary patch for dyld as component of the Substrate installation series. This was the worst feasible day for me, as I’m taking a trip back to Santa Barbara today (I’m presently in Texas, having actually come here to offer a talk at The Huge Android BBQ), which suggests this will take me a little longer compared to I would certainly like, however plainly obtaining Cydia and Substrate dealing with iOS 8 is my greatest top priority. I thankfully assume that I really could start functioning a little on among the Substrate issues using an iOS 7 “”model”based on the details provided by windknown, meanings I’ll lose much less time to not having each one of my devices with me. (I presently have no idea why Cydia itself is not working, but will locate out later today when I could see it myself.)
