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. For complete details on iOS 8.2 beta 4 and iOS 8.1.3, including the possibility of a new jailbreak for either 8.1.3 or 8.2, continue reading past the break! Continue reading… »

iOS 8.1.3 Release: Jailbreakers Prepare Yourselves, Can I Jailbreak 8.1.3?

Apple Preparing iOS 8.1.3 for Release, Jailbreakers Prepare Yourselves, Can I Jailbreak 8.1.3? – There’s no questioning that it’s been an incredible time for jailbreakers as of late – not only was iOS 8 jailbroken a mere month after its initial release, but following said jailbreak’s patch, which came in the form of iOS 8.1.2, a new team made their grand appearance onto the jailbreak scene: TaiG. Now, jailbreakers can employ the use of TaiG to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 completely Untethered for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. However, since TaiG 1.2.0 was released to jailbreak 8.1.2 things have settled down and become rather calm on the iOS and jailbreak scene; the saying “the calm before the storm” is undeniably applicable for the current scenario. Before the Holidays, we reported that Apple was actively testing iOS 8.1.3 and planning to release the firmware to the public, which would likely patch TaiG. While this doesn’t bode well for the current jailbreak utility, it will be interesting to see what comes from the imminent release, as we’ve had a more active group of jailbreak developers this past year than ever before. However, if released, there’s a strong possibility that iOS 8.1.3 will close the vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG to achieve an Untethered jailbreak and, in turn, make it impossible to jailbreak 8.1.3 utilizing the current iteration of TaiG, being version 1.2.0.

Beta 3 Released, Will TaiG Jailbreak 8.2 Post 8.1.2? Facts Examined!

Apple Releases iOS 8.2 beta 3, Will TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.2 Following Their 8.1.2 Jailbreak? – Today, ensuing all of the recent jailbreak news, including that enveloping the Untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.1.2, Apple seeded the third beta iteration of iOS 8.2, being of course 8.2 beta 3, to developers officially enrolled in the company’s iOS 8 Developer program. The company’s latest update is available for immediate download via one of two methods – either through Apple’s traditional Developer Center or as an over-the-air (commonly referred to as OTA for short) update through the default Settings app for developers running either 8.2 beta 2 or beta 1. Additionally, the new 8.2 beta carries a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12D5452a, compared to 12D445d. Seeing as the aforementioned jump in build numbers is incredibly minor in nature, it can be assumed that 8.2 offers little in the way of improvements over either of its predecessors. However, in contrast, the latest public firmware (being 8.1.2) is associated with a build number of 12B440. Such a drastic jump would indicate major revisions, improvements and new iOS 8.2 features – perfect for a jailbreak, right? Not exactly, as of now, 8.2 offers no additional features over 8.1.x, aside from the integration of the forthcoming Apple Watch, which is scheduled to be released in “early 2015″. With a release so far out, it’s certainly plausible that the public iteration of 8.2 will boast further improvements and additions. For now however, the 8.2 beta installments are mostly intended for iOS Developers who have their sights set on creating new and exciting Apple Watch apps – for said purpose, Apple has also seeded Xcode 6.2 beta 3 with WatchKit integration (Apple’s SDK or software development kit for the forthcoming device). In the end, the devices that will benefit most from 8.2 will unquestionably be the devices that can fully interface with the Apple Watch, being the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C and the iPhone 5. But how about jailbreaking? With iOS 8.1.1 and 8.1.2 completely jailbroken untethered by TaiG, will there be a new tool capable of jailbreaking 8.2 on all devices?
