Can I upgrade to iOS 8 from a jailbroken state?

Do I have to do anything special to get from a jailbroken state to iOS 8? I realise I probably wouldn't be able to jailbreak again for a while!

Nope. Just back up your iPhone to iTunes. Upgrade to iOS 8 and then restore. Obviously, any Cydia stuff will not be restored. Never had a problem.

I should have said: connect the jailbroken device to iTunes and hit "restore". That will wipe it and update to latest available OS.
ALSO: D O N O T upgrade OTA!!!!
