Jailbreak iOS 8.2 on Release? How to Protect your Jailbreak, plus Free Paid Apps! – With Apple’s forthcoming media event, scheduled for one week from today (Monday, March 9th, 2015), expected to play host to the unveiling of previously unknown Apple Watch features and presumably additional information concerning iOS 8.2, things are about to heat up for the iOS and jailbreak communities. While iOS 8.2 was, and possibly still is, expected for release sometime this week or next, the primary question on everyones’ mind is whether there will be a jailbreak iOS 8.2 solution shortly following the release of iOS 8.2 itself. While we discussed the topic at great length in a recent article, the possibility of the unforeseen still remains – TaiG or Pangu could just as easily save their vulnerabilities for exploitation in an iOS 8.3 jailbreak utility as they could for the forthcoming iOS 8.2 release, especially seeing as we not only know iOS 8.3 will be inevitably issued but also that it will likely come soon given its current developer beta 2 status. Having said that, it’s incredibly important for both those intent on maintaining their device’s iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak or 8.2 beta 2 jailbreak and those keen on jailbreaking the next major version of iOS 8 to prepare themselves for what’s about to come. For details pertaining to iOS 8.3, the potential 8.2 jailbreak and how to legitimately earn paid App Store apps for free whether jailbroken or not, continue reading past the break!

iOS 8.2 Jailbreak 8.1.3 Method Patched and iOS 8.2, Apple Watch Release Dates – While it’s only been a few short days since TaiG liberated the masses yet again with a clever iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak solution for those unfortunate iDevice owners who happened to be stuck on the firmware, Apple promptly ceased signing both iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2 today. For some brief background, TaiG simply released an updated utility to both recognize, and function on the first two iOS 8.2 beta firmwares without using any additional exploits, as both iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2 were issued prior to the iOS 8.1.3 TaiG jailbreak-patching firmware’s release – i.e. Apple hadn’t readied the jailbreak patch at the time of said betas’ availability. In other words, in order to jailbreak post 8.1.3 one would have been required to update to iOS 8.2 beta and deliver the jailbreak earlier this week. Furthermore, while those still running iOS 8.1.2 or either an earlier iteration of iOS 8 or one of the first two iOS 8.2 beta IPSWs can still jailbreak, those on iOS 8.1.3 who didn’t jump the gun when TaiG version 1.3.0 was issued will effectively be locked out until a new jailbreak utility is released. Having said that, such a solution might become available for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models (including the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPad Air 2 and all other iOS 8-powered devices) sooner than most would predict! For more details on a new iOS 8.2 jailbreak, the forthcoming Apple Watch media event (which was officially) announced yesterday, and the direction of the world jailbreaking and its future continue reading past the break.

Jailbreak 8.2 Untethered After Updating from iOS 8.1.3 to Jailbreak iPhone 6 Plus and iPad – Today, as the public eagerly awaits a tool to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 and later, TaiG just updated their TaiGJBreak (more commonly referred to as simply TaiG) utility to version 1.3.0. 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. At this point you may be wondering why a tool to jailbreak a beta is so important, as betas are reserved for developers. The answer is incredibly simple, any individual can update their iOS 8.1.3 device to iOS 8.2 using a simple iTunes workaround that will successfully allow restores to the firmware. 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.

Top iOS 8.1.2 Cydia Tweaks, Pre iOS 8.1.3 Jailbreak for TaiG and Pangu – Today, the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak opted to tackle a question we perpetually receive regardless of the current public firmware or its jailbreak status (e.g. the iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak patching IPSW), which is one that pertains to the best tweaks available on Cydia for jailbroken devices. Unfortunately though, in light of the fact that there isn’t a jailbreak for 8.1.3, the tweaks and Cydia “apps” found in today’s article are reserved for users still jailbroken on iOS 8 through 8.1.2 by way of either Pangu, TaiG or PP for Mac OS X. In spite of the aforementioned devastating blow to the jailbreak community, for members who either mistakenly updated to iOS 8.1.3 or purchased their devices with the jailbreak patch pre-installed, jailbreakers maintain an insatiable appetite for new and cool Cydia tweaks. Having said that, we’re excited to share some of the best and top jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 tweaks available for those of our readers who own iPhone, iPod touch or iPad models that are currently jailbroken on iOS 8.1.x! Furthermore, to break up the somewhat monotonous reports of a potential jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 solution once iOS 8.2 is issued, this feels like the opportune time to share the list that we curated in collaboration with popular jailbreak YouTuber iCrackUriDevice. To enhance the levels of both personalization and functionality of your iPod, iPad or iPhone, continue reading past the break for the best jailbreak tweaks available for immediate install.

TaiG or Pangu iOS 8.1.3 Jailbreak for 8.2 And Legality Update – With Apple having not only closed the vulnerabilities used by TaiG with their semi-recent iOS 8.1.3 release (rendering the tool completely incapable of delivering a jailbreak for 8.1.3 regardless of computer or device type) but also restricting downgrades from 8.1.3 to 8.1.2, the jailbreak community is in an increasingly high need of a new iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak for 8.2 and later. With both TaiG and Pangu active on the jailbreak scene, both of which have delivered a jailbreak compatible with the iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 6, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPhone 5s and older iOS 8-powered devices, the question isn’t whether we’ll receive a new jailbreak, but rather when? There’s no doubt that the process will be expedited in light of a recent discovery that should (hopefully) aid in jailbreak development for years to come, but what about the more imminent future? Considering Apple, as they’ve always done in the past and will always continue to do, patched the TaiG iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak, a new set of vulnerabilities will be required when developing the next jailbreak for all iOS 8-based devices. Will TaiG or Pangu jailbreak 8.1.3 or iOS 8.2? Continue reading past the break for additional information on both of the aforementioned firmwares and the possibility of a corresponding jailbreak for each. Continue reading… »
iOS 8.2 Jailbreak post 8.1.3 Irrelevant Compared to New Discovery? – While the jailbreak community is still recovering from the serious blow that was iOS 8.1.3, Apple’s current public firmware that patches the TaiG jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 tool for the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod touch 5th generation and other iOS 8-powered devices, a rather substantial breakthrough was publicized yesterday. According to longtime security expert and iOS hacker Stefan Esser (better known online by his hacking handle: i0n1c) “Apple Lightning has been broken”. Although it may not sound significant, this is easily one of the greatest jailbreak-related achievements as of late and is even more crucial to the future success of jailbreaking than an iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak utility would be, as it will become a new medium for vulnerability discovery and exploitation for what will hopefully be years to come. For more information on this latest accomplishment and how said feat will aid in the creation of new jailbreaks for 8.2, iOS 8.3, iOS 9, etc. utilities, continue reading past the break.

Jailbreak iOS 8.2 Untethered Update; TaiG or Pangu, How to Jailbreak 8.2 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 8.2. In light of the fact that the iOS 8.1.2 Untethered TaiG and PP jailbreak utilities are now officially patched by iOS 8.1.3, and that downgrades from 8.1.3 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 8.2, 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 are we going to reach iOS 8.2, but 8.3 is currently available in its first public developer beta stage and, as with several accurately predicted iterations of iOS 8 that preceded it, iOS 8.4 is rumored to make an appearance 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 8.2 jailbreak or even future utilities to jailbreak past the forthcoming firmware? For an in-depth examination of what the future holds in store for jailbreakers, as well as information on the next major iOS 8 release, being iOS 8.2, jump past the break! Continue reading… »
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.
The all-new TaiG 1.2.0 iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak utility supports all iOS 8-based devices – every iPhone, iPod touch and iPad model that’s able to upgrade to 8.1.2 can successfully jailbreak by way of TaiG, including the following: Continue reading… »
TaiG Issues 8.1.1 Jailbreak, It’s Now Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.1 Untethered: Tutorial for All Devices – Well, this is a first. Earlier this morning, an all-new jailbreak 8.1.1 solution was released by the TaiG team (the same group of developers that initially, and briefly, funded the evad3rs last year when creating evasi0n7, before said funding was pulled due to community uproar). The brand new tool from TaiG, dubbed TaiGJBreak for iOS 8 is capable of delivering a seemingly bug-free Untethered jailbreak for 8.1.1 and all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. Although it’s interesting, and rather odd, that TaiG opted to release a utility while Apple was still signing 8.1, allowing iDevice owners to easily downgrade from 8.1.1 with intent to execute a jailbreak on 8.1, this is an absolutely incredible time for jailbreakers the world over. In what looks like a heated rivalry between TaiG and Pangu, two Chinese groups both funded by third-party companies with other monetary interests in jailbreaking (specifically non-App Store app distribution in China), it seems as though we’ll start seeing new jailbreak tools in rapid fire succession as the teams race against one another. Like Pangu 1.1.1 for iOS 8 through 8.1, TaiG comes bundled with Cydia (the graphical user interface we’ve all come to know and love over the years for distributing third-party tweaks and modifications). Jailbreaking on 8.1.1 with either the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, the latest iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, the original iPad Air and iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 2 or the 5th generation iPod touch is surprisingly fast and stable. Continue reading past the quick break for complete and thorough instructions on how to jailbreak the aforementioned iDevices running 8.1 fully UnTethered!
