Downgrade iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2 Jailbreak TaiG or PP, How to Tutorial – Ensuing the rather substantive, albeit definitely foreseen, blow to the iOS 8 jailbreak community that was iOS 8.1.3 (the firmware that patches the TaiG jailbreak), a sizable number of our readers have written us as to whether it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 Untethered. Unfortunately, as we’ve detailed in great length through a number of recent iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak articles, the new firmware that was released on Tuesday, January 27th, 2015, patches the primary kernel exploit utilized by TaiG in addition to several others. Simply put, it’s no longer possible to jailbreak 8.1.3 on any device whether it’s a newer iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 or an older iPhone 4s or iPad 2 running iOS 8.1.3. The same applies to any other iOS-based device – it’s impossible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 when utilizing the current TaiG and PP tools. However, there is a silver lining for jailbreakers! Those who updated, either intentionally or by accident, can successfully downgrade from iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2 (the latest firmware supported by both TaiG and PP for Mac). Interestingly, in spite of Apple’s efforts to close the untethered iOS 8 through 8.1.2 jailbreak, the company is still signing iOS 8.1.2, meaning restores to the firmware are still permitted. If you’re interested in downgrading 8.1.3 to 8.1.2 to jailbreak, continue reading past the break and do so sooner rather than later as this incredible opportunity won’t last long. Continue reading… »

Apple Releases iOS 8.1.3, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.3 and Should I Update? – Today, in a rather devastating blow to the jailbreak community, albeit a foreseen one, Apple issued iOS 8.1.3 (the third incremental 8.1.x update, succeeding both 8.1.2 and 8.1.1) to the general public. Currently, unlike the latest firmware’s predecessor, 8.1.3 cannot be jailbroken by way of the latest TaiG jailbreak utility, which has officially been patched. In light of the rather painful fact that it’s currently not possible to jailbreak 8.1.3, today’s news isn’t entirely bad for jailbreakers – we’ll elaborate on that as the article goes on. As with past iOS 8, and even iOS 7, updates, in addition to being available through Apple’s iOS over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA for short) update option, 8.1.3 can be fully downloaded and installed via iTunes: the ‘old school’ method veteran jailbreakers can appreciate. However, while it’s possible for any device supported by iOS 8 to update to 8.1.3, it’s of the utmost importance that current iOS 8 through 8.1.2 jailbreak users avoid today’s new firmware at all costs! As alluded to in the preceding sentences, the new 8.1.3 update is a minor release. Knowing that 8.1.3 doesn’t implement any noticeable changes, updating to the new release certainly wouldn’t justify the loss of one’s jailbreak. We also have confirmation from Apple that several of the vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 are patched in iOS 8.1.3. However, the remaining vulnerabilities should be able to be ‘recycled’ in a sense for use in a new jaibreak tool. Continue reading past the break for more information concerning not only TaiG, but also how iOS 8.1.3 affects the latest jailbreak! Continue reading… »
Jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 and Release, How To Stay Jailbroken – While recent rumors surrounding the release of iOS 8.1.3 (a firmware that’s widely expected to patch the PP and TaiG iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak utilities) had started to slow since their inception in mid-December when a popular site, MacRumors, reported seeing hits from iOS devices running 8.1.3 – today said rumors have been reignited. While there’s no doubt that the jailbreak for 8.1.2 will inevitably be patched, seeing as iOS 8.2 (the next major iOS release) is on the horizon and expected to be release in “early 2015″ alongside the Apple Watch, such a patch may come sooner, in the form of iOS 8.1.3. It’s not a secret that a number of minor issues are still present in iOS 8.1.2, the latest public firmware as of January 25th, 2015. If Apple opts to issue 8.1.3, the third 8.1.x installment, prior to the inevitable 8.2 release, it’s all but certain that Apple will choose to patch the iOS 8 vulnerabilities exposed by TaiG in 8.1.3, like the company did in iOS 8.1.1 for those Pangu relied upon to achieve an Untethered jailbreak on iOS 8 through 8.1.

Mac owners can now natively jailbreak their iOS devices without having to fuss with a virtual machine or Bootcamp to first install Windows – PP’s tool is capable of delivering an Untethered jailbreak straight from the comfort a Mac.

Similar to TaiG’s one-click Windows TaiGJBreak 1.2.0 tool for iOS 8, the Mac version of PPghost is able to jailbreak 8.1.2 on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, the iPod touch 5th generation, as well as all iPad models, including the iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, the original iPad Air, iPad mini 2, iPad 4, the original iPad mini, iPad 3 and the older iPad 2.

Permanent iOS 8 Brick Method Exposed, iOS 8.1.3, 8.2 TaiG Jailbreak Patch May Be The Answer – Currently, the latest public firmware, being iOS 8.1.2, is able to be fully jailbroken by way of TaiG. However, as time continually moves forward, we’re quickly approaching not only the rumored iOS 8.1.3 firmware, which is expected to patch the aforementioned iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak utility, but also iOS 8.2 and the Apple Watch’s release. However, while iOS 8.1.3 and 8.2 might not bode well for the jailbreak community, they may quickly become a necessity. Today an interesting, and rather dangerous, vulnerability for iOS 8-based devices was publicized by popular iDevice hacker iH8sn0w. In a back-and-forth conversation between said hacker and MuscleNerd (unofficial leader of the quondam prominent evad3rs dev team), iH8sn0w revealed a command that, if run, will result in a permanently bricked device. To provide subtext, “bricked” is used to refer to a piece of technology that is no longer usable for an infinite number of different reasons (based on the device and software involved). Previously, it was popular belief that it was impossible to ‘brick’ an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, as said devices can always enter either Recovery or DFU mode, perform a restore via iTunes and be ‘out of the woods’, so to speak. However, as of now, that’s no longer the case – jailbreakers may need to take additional measures to ensure their devices’ safety, as it could become as useless as a paperweight if the previously alluded to command were executed. For additional details on the new iOS 8 soft-brick, iOS 8.1.3, jailbreaking and how to protect yourself, continue reading 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.

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.
