Default [Q] Jailbroken RT8.0 - Can I enable Autoupdate again?

Hi everybody!

I have a Asus TF600tg with a jailbroken Windows RT 8.0. At the time I installed the jailbreak it was recommended to disable all automatic updates. My question now is if this is still recommended? Can I enable it again without invalidating the jailbreak or will autoupdate upgrade to RT8.1 immediately?

Thanx and regards
culinari

I put all my devices on manual update (jailbroken Surface RT being no exception, for all that it wasn't possible to set that option in the UI). However, I've been able to install all the updates no issue. 8.1 remains an optional update, not an automatic one, so far as I can tell.
Win8/Windows RT projects:

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

I never disabled auto-update on my Surface RT, and so far no update has broken the jailbreak. As mentioned above, the 8.1 upgrade is something you have to manually initiate via the windows store, thankfully.

I just installed all updates (82 in total ) and the Jailbreak is still working fine. To be safe I disabled auto update again afterwards.

Regards and thanx
