TaiG iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Tool Expedited by Apple Watch, Will You Update? – Since iOS 8.1.3’s release in January those who either restore their devices or purchase new devices running said firmware or later have been unable to jailbreak, the same applies to iOS 8.3 (the latest public firmware). While there isn’t a jailbreak iOS 8.3 solution as of writing this article, both TaiG and now, thankfully, Pangu have confirmed the development of a new jailbreak utility, which will inevitably support the latest public firmware. While the public was under the impression that a new jailbreak would present itself prior to April 24th (we’ll explain why we’re referencing the 24th in particular shortly), it doesn’t appear as though it will happen and, as each day passes, the possibility is becoming increasingly less likely. As we’ve stated before, new jailbreak utilities take hundreds of hours to develop, from exploitation discovery to coding and an extraordinary amount of testing, as explained in the video we’ve taken the liberty of embedding below for an excellent audible representation of the jailbreak concept in a nutshell. For details on why this coming Friday is so important, the next jailbreak, iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3, continue reading past the jump. Continue reading… »
Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Untethered Update; TaiG or Pangu, How to Jailbreak 8.4 and 8.3 Possibility – As we progress forward into 2015, a question that’s gnawing at the back of mind of the jailbreak world as a whole is whether there will be a solution to jailbreak iOS 8.3. In light of the fact that the iOS 8.1.2 Untethered TaiG and PP jailbreak utilities were officially patched by iOS 8.1.3, as well as iOS 8.2, iOS 8.3 and the new iOS 8.4 beta for that matter, and that downgrades to 8.1.2 are no longer possible (Apple closed the signing window for the jailbreakable firmware), we must turn our attention toward the future: iOS 8.3 and even iOS 8.4! Last year, with iOS 7 and even before that (the same applies to iOS 6 and iOS 5), Apple’s iOS releases didn’t surpass 7.1.x. Now, as the company’s line of products evolve, not only have we’ve reached iOS 8.2, but also iOS 8.3, which is currently available to the pubic. As with several accurately predicted iterations of iOS 8 that preceded 8.3, iOS 8.4 is already in its first developer beta testing stage, slated for release later this year. Having said that, what about jailbreaking for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and older iOS 8-capable devices? Will there be an iOS 8.4 jailbreak for 8.3 or even future utilities to jailbreak past the latest firmware? For an in-depth examination of what the future holds in store for jailbreakers, as well as information on the latest major iOS 8 release, being iOS 8.3, jump past the break! Continue reading… »
iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Affected by iOS 9 and WWDC 2015? – Yesterday, as we’re all patiently (some of us more than others) awaiting a new jailbreak for iOS 8.3 from either TaiG or Pangu, who recently re-entered the jailbreak arena, Apple announced the event that will showcase the future of iOS and OS X: WWDC 2015. During the forthcoming event, which will be held in San Francisco, California at Moscone Center from June 8th to the 12th, Apple will undoubtedly unveil both iOS 9 and OS 10.11 (the next OS X installment) to the world and, in turn, seed the first iOS 9 beta. But what about jailbreaking, will it be affected by iOS 9? In spite of the fact that the TaiG jailbreak was patched by Apple with the release of 8.1.3, followed swiftly by both iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3, as we’ve stated several times new jailbreak tools are currently in development. While the answer to the aforementioned question for long term affects is a definite “yes,” thankfully, the same can’t be said for the next iOS 8.3 jailbreak for all iDevices – its development will remain unaffected by iOS 9’s unveiling at the upcoming WWDC keynote. For more details on not only Apple’s forthcoming World Wide Developers Conference, iOS 9 and OS 10.11, but also jailbreaking and what we can expect moving forward, simply make the jump past the break to continue reading.

Apple iOS 8.4 Beta, iOS 8.3 Jailbreak or 8.4 Jailbreak, Which Will TaiG Conquer? – Today, fresh on the heels of iOS 8.3’s public release last week, Apple seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.4 to registered developers for sole purpose of testing what is now confirmed to be the next significant iOS 8 update, excluding any potential 8.3.x releases. While the public still eagerly awaits a new iOS 8.3 jailbreak for all devices, Apple appears to be expediting the speed at which the company releases new iOS updates. Today’s latest beta carries a build number of 12H4074d and is available for exclusive download via Apple’s dedicated iOS Developer Portal – seeing as this is the first beta of its kind, there’s clearly no OTA (over-the-air) update option. With Apple having now inadvertently confirmed that iOS 8 will reach as high as 8.4, a question that’s likely on a number of jailbreakers’ minds is whether the jailbreak developers will once again decide to wait for iOS 8.4 before releasing a new jailbreak or instead hastily finish what they’ve been working on and release the jailbreak for 8.3. Details and an analysis exploring said question concerning the logistics of a new jailbreak, as well as iOS 8.4 itself, can be found after the break! Continue reading… »
New Pangu Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Exploits, Jailbreak Development – Although the public awaits a new solution to jailbreak iOS 8.3, the latest public firmware as of this past Wednesday’s release, we have a ray of sunshine in an otherwise murky and uncertain time. In spite of the fact that a new jailbreak for 8.3 and iOS 8.2 is indeed in the works by TaiG, we have absolutely no official ETA, or even a timeframe for that matter. However, that being said, we mustn’t forget those who preceded TaiG – we have confirmation that Pangu may in fact be developing a similar iOS 8.3 jailbreak solution. Apple has undoubtedly picked up the company’s pace in mobile software development for iOS 8, succeeding the entire range of iOS 7 releases merely halfway through iOS 8’s lifecycle, and the same can also be said for jailbreak development, though not nearly as fast. In the past ~365 days, we’ve received more untethered jailbreak utilities and updates for said utilities and than for all of iOS 5, iOS 6 and iOS 7. Now, in spite of the fact that there hasn’t been a new jailbreak since iOS 8.1.3 patched TaiG’s latest public tool, we have confirmation that Pangu will begin dabbling in the creation of a brand new utility as they move past drama with former jailbreak contributor i0n1c (Stefan Esser). For more on the next iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.2 jailbreak, including Pangu’s involvement, continue reading past the break. Continue reading… »
New iOS 8.3 Jailbreak and its Release, TaiG’s Next Untethered Utility – Today, ensuing four beta releases, Apple issued iOS 8.3 to the general public. Although we’re still eagerly awaiting a new jailbreak utility, iOS 8.3 marks an exciting time for jailbreakers the world over – we’ve moved beyond both iOS 8.1.3, the TaiG jailbreak-patching firmware, and iOS 8.2. However, before we delve into jailbreaking, let’s quickly discuss iOS 8.3 as a software update. iOS 8.3, being the third substantial 8.x update, carries a significantly revised build number over its predecessor. As usual, in addition to being available for immediate download via the traditional iTunes Restore method, one could update their device to the firmware using Apple’s built-in over-the-air update utility, which is an option that’s strongly discouraged for prospective jailbreakers as it will undoubtably cause future complications with the forthcoming iOS 8.3 jailbreak. For more on iOS 8.3, the firmware’s features and a potential jailbreak 8.3 utility, continue reading. Continue reading… »
Jailbreak Apple Watch: We Need an iOS 8.2 or 8.3 Jailbreak, Here’s Why – The jailbreak community has an exciting chapter ahead of it – in addition to expecting a new post 8.2 jailbreak utility, the highly-anticipated Apple Watch is slated for release later this month on April 24th, 2015. Beyond questions pertaining to a jailbreak for iOS 8.2, we wanted to address another topic that a number of our readers have pondered: the Apple Watch and whether the device will receive a jailbreak of its own. First however, for those of you who don’t know, the Apple Watch requires owning one of the following iPhone models on the public build of iOS 8.2 or later (iOS 8.3 beta 3 and beyond) – the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. While the Apple Watch may function on other devices in light of a new iOS 8.2 and up jailbreak, we’re starting to get ahead of ourselves, one of the devices from the aforementioned list of iPhone models will be required for the device to fully function at launch – it will be available for pre-order later this week on Friday, April 10th. However, before we begin to contemplate the wonders of an Apple Watch jailbreak, we must first have one very crucial component or else such a feat won’t be possible: a new iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.2 Untethered jailbreak. For additional details on a possible Apple Watch and iOS 8.2 and up jailbreak, make the jump past the break! Continue reading… »
iOS 8.2 Jailbreak for iOS 8.3 Slated and TaiG Update’s The Team’s Site – While the public has yet to receive a new jailbreak solution for iOS 8.2, we’re continually bombarded with questions pertaining to whether users can jailbreak iOS 8.2 and, considering they can’t currently, when they can expect to. Unforunately, although nothing has changed on that front (the latest jailbreak 8.2 overview status can be found on our latest coverage), TaiG updated their site to reflect additional insight of MSS 2015 – the Mobile Security Summit the group hosted in Beijing that a number of key and influential jailbreakers both attended and spoke at. However, it might not be the update those seeking to jailbreak were hoping for. Instead of releasing a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 during MSS, TaiG opted to hold off, waiting for iOS 8.3 and releasing an official statement; though convoluted, it essentially confirms what we’ve stated on Evasi0n Jailbreak for the past three weeks. For more on jailbreaking, iOS 8.2, as well as TaiG’s latest site update, continue reading past the break. Continue reading… »

However, the aforementioned update isn’t an iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak, but rather something equally beneficial to those who either mistakenly updated to or who purchased their devices running the iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak-patching firmware: a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2! The new update to the wonderful TaiG tool, dubbed TaiGJBreak 1.3.0 for iOS 8 through 8.2 beta 2, is capable of delivering a fluid Untethered jailbreak on 8.2 beta for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models.

In other words, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners running iOS 8.1.3 can, in essence, jailbreak by first upgrading to 8.2 beta – don’t worry, we’ll promptly guide you through the entire process in today’s article. For those of you interested in jailbreaking past iOS 8.1.2 on either a Windows-based PC or a Mac, continue reading past the break for complete steps!

iOS 8.1.2 Jailbreak: How to Jailbreak 8.1.2 Untethered Using TaiG 1.2.0, All iOS 8 iPhone, iPod, iPad Models – Wow, this has to be a new record. Late last night, merely hours following Apple’s release of the new iOS 8.1.2 public firmware, a brand new jailbreak 8.1.2 solution was issued by the TaiG team (the same group responsible for the creation of the previous iOS 8 through 8.1.1 jailbreak by the same name). The latest update to the exciting TaiG tool, dubbed TaiGJBreak 1.2.0 for iOS 8 through 8.1.2, is capable of delivering a completely bug-free Untethered jailbreak for 8.1.2 an all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models. In fact TaiG 1.2 is quickly becoming what a vast number of jailbreakers are referring to as the “most stable” jailbreak yet! Ensuing our earlier coverage stating that the primary kernel exploited utilized by the first iteration of TaiG remained unpatched in 8.1.2, the team promptly released their latest version, TaiG 1.2.0, to once again jailbreak the latest public firmware. In what looks like a new trend, the Chinese-based group – like Pangu they are both funded by third-party companies with their monetary interests in jailbreaking (particularly in relation to non-App Store app distribution in China) – is keen on delivering updates to their tool to support subsequent 8.1.x updates. Like its predecessor, TaiG comes bundled with Cydia (the ever-familiar graphical user interface we’ve come to know and love for distributing third-party packages and iOS tweaks). Furthermore, jailbreaking iOS 8.1.2 on either the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, iPad mini 2 with Retina display, the original iPad Air and iPad mini, the iPad 4, iPad 2 or the iPod touch 5th generation is fast and straightforward. Continue reading past the break in today’s tutorial for complete instructions on how to jailbreak the aforementioned iOS 8-based devices running 8.1.2 fully UnTethered!
To reaffirm what was stated above, this tutorial will assist you in the simple, and mostly one-click, jailbreak iOS 8.1 through 8.1.2 process, which thankfully installs Cydia for the easy acquisition of third-party tweaks.
