The August 2014 CU was delivered with caution from  Microsoft’s Senior Escalation Engineer.  I would urge you to read the article in its entirety but make note that….


“This CU does NOT(!) include all SharePoint 2013 fixes previously released! It is recommended to install July 2014 CU before installing this CU.

The CU does not include SP1! You can install SP1 before or after installing this CU.”
