iOS 8.1.3 Jailbreak Patch Is Nothing Compared To This Current Threat!

Jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 TaiG Patch is Nothing Compared to this New Legal Threat! – With jailbreaking having taken off in the past few months due to an explosion of growth on the development front, which can be entirely attributed to the new TaiG, Pangu and PP Chinese jailbreak teams, the entire process and concept are starting to become things we take for granted. Although iOS 8.1.3 patches the jailbreak for iOS 8.1.2, effectively making it currently impossible to jailbreak on 8.1.3, previously we’d be lucky to receive two new utilities a year – one for each major iOS release. For example, iOS 6 and iOS 7 both were jailbroken by evasi0n from the evad3rs shortly following their release and that was it until Pangu made their grand appearance on the scene with the group’s jailbreak for 7.1.2, followed by their Pangu8 tool to jailbreak 8.1 only months later (during the interim their original 7.1.2 utility was thriving). Since then, TaiG released two jailbreak utilities, one for iOS 8.1.1 and the other is an update to cover iOS 8.1.2, and a team dubbed PP created a utility of the same name to jailbreak the latter of the two aforementioned firmwares on OS X for Mac owners. Now however, before an iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak is even considered, a new threat looms on the horizon for the world of jailbreaking: the law. Currently, jailbreaking is 100 percent legal, and hopefully it will remain that way, but we need your help. To learn how to safeguard the future of jailbreaking post 8.1.3 for iOS 8.2 and beyond, continue reading past the break. Continue reading… »

iOS 8.2 Beta 5 Released Following TaiG 8.1.3 Jailbreak Patch, New 8.2 Jailbreak?

iOS 8.2 Jailbreak post iOS 8.1.3, Apple Releases iOS 8.2 Beta 5 will TaiG Jailbreak 8.2? – Earlier this morning, following Apple’s release of the iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak patching firmware last week, the company seeded the fifth beta iteration of iOS 8.2, being 8.2 beta 5, to developers enrolled in the company’s official iOS Developer program. As always, Apple’s latest beta update is available for immediate download via either the traditional iOS Developer Center on Apple’s site or as an OTA (which stands for over-the-air) update through the Settings app for developers running either iOS 8.2 beta 4, beta 3, beta 2 or beta 1. Additionally, today’s iOS 8.2 beta features a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12D5480a, compared to 12D5461b. Similar to how TaiG won’t jailbreak, or function on, iOS 8.1.3, the tool will not support iOS 8.2 as it currently stands. For complete details on iOS 8.2 beta 5 and iOS 8.1.3, including the potential of a new jailbreak for either 8.1.3 or iOS 8.2, continue reading past the jump. Continue reading… »

How To Downgrade iOS 8.1.3 To 8.1.2 And Jailbreak With TaiG Or PP

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.

Jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 And iOS 8.1.2 Using TaiG On iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s And iPad [Updated]

How to Jailbreak 8.1.2 and iOS 8.1.3 Untethered? TaiG And PP Information – Are you looking to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 or do need details on iOS 8.1.3? You’ve come to the right place!

Apple Releases iOS 8.1.3, Can I Jailbreak 8.1.3 And Is TaiG Patched?

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.

iOS 8.1.3 Jailbreak And Release: How To Stay Jailbroken Before iOS 8.2

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.

Devastating Brick Threat Arrises For Jailbreakers, TaiG iOS 8.1.3, 8.2 Patch May Be The Solution

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.

iOS 8.2 Beta 4 Issued, Is TaiG Compatible, Will TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.2?

iOS 8.2 Jailbreak: Apple Releases iOS 8.2 Beta 4, Can TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.2? – Today, as a vast majority of jailbreakers prepare themselves for what could very well be the the impending release of iOS 8.1.3, the firmware that’s expected to patch the Untethered TaiG jailbreak, Apple seeded the fourth beta iteration of iOS 8.2, being 8.2 beta 4, to developers officially enrolled in the company’s iOS 8 Developer Program. Apple’s latest beta update is available for immediate download via two methods: through the traditional Developer Center or as an OTA (short for over-the-air) update, found in the Settings app, for developers running either iOS 8.2 beta 3, beta 2 or beta 1. Furthermore, today’s 8.2 beta carries a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12D5461b, compared to 12D5452a. In light of the fact that the aforementioned bump in build numbers is rather minor, it can rightfully be assumed that the new 8.2 beta offers little in the way of improvements and modifications over its predecessors. However, for comparison, the current public firmware (being iOS 8.1.2, as of Monday, January 12th, 2015) is tied to the following build number, 12B440 – a much more substantive jump. While iOS 8.2 isn’t widely available to the public, as it’s restricted to developers, the firmware may very well be followed-up by a subsequent iOS 8 release later this week, possibly the public version of iOS 8.1.3, the plausible jailbreak-patching firmware.
