TaiG to Jailbreak iOS 8.4? Plus TaiG 2.1.3 Jailbreak 8.3 Utility Update

iOS 8.4 Jailbreak from TaiG? Plus Jailbreak 8.3 TaiG 2.1.3 Update - Yesterday, following the exciting release of last week’s initial TaiG iOS 8.3 jailbreak, and the subsequent TaiG 2.1.2 update to address users who were getting stuck at 60% and adding support for Substrate Cydia Tweaks, TaiG issued version 2.1.3 of their untethered jailbreak utility. Like its two processors, TaiG 2.1.3 is capable of jailbreaking iOS 8.3 on all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models, including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. However, with iOS 8.4 right around the corner (literally, we’re less than 24 hours away from its public release), will the jailbreak include support for Apple’s newest firmware - i.e. will TaiG be able to jailbreak iOS 8.4 Untethered as well as iOS 8.3? For information on both the TaiG 2.1.3 update and how iOS 8.4 may affect jailbreaking, continue reading past the break.

Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Untethered TaiG 2.1.3 Tutorial: iPhone, iPod and iPad [Updated]

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak TaiG Untethered 2.1.3 Tutorial, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPod touch and More - Very early this morning, world renowned hacking group TaiG released an all new jailbreak 8.3 untethered solution (the very same group who created the previous iOS 8 through 8.1.2 and iOS 8.2 betas 1 and 2 jailbreak utility). The latest update to the TaiG jailbreak, being TaiG 2.0 (which has now been updated to version 2.1.3) for iOS 8, is capable of successfully delivering a hassle-free Untethered jailbreak on iOS 8.3 for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models. This release, like its processor, came out of the blue and certainly wasn’t expected - in fact, TaiG confirmed in a recent interview that they had no plans on releasing another iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.3; it’s a good thing they employed the use of this tactic to divert attention. We now have a fully functioning iOS 8.3 jailbreak that also includes support for iOS 8.1.3 and 8.2! Like TaiG’s older predecessor, the tool comes bundled with Cydia (the graphical user interface for distributing third-party packages and iOS tweaks). Moreover, jailbreaking iOS 8.3 on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, the Retina display iPad Mini 2, the original iPad Air and iPad mini, the iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and the iPod touch 5th generation is as easy and fluid as ever.

Jailbreak iOS 9 and iOS 8.4, TaiG or Pangu, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad and K33N [Update]

Jailbreak iOS 9 Untethered Update: Pangu, TaiG and K33N, How to Jailbreak iOS 9.0 and 8.4 Status -  In light of iOS 9 having recently entered developer beta testing, and the fact that Pangu has successfully achieved an iOS 8.3 jailbreak, it’s time to look forward towards the future: the second half of 2015, iOS 9’s release and beyond. iOS 9.0 will be released to the general public in the fall of 2015, alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as is already known to be the target of a few teams interested in jailbreaking iOS 9. However, to address the current state of jailbreak affairs prior to discussing what’s next for the community, the latest iOS 8.1.2 (and 8.2 betas 1 and 2) Untethered PP and TaiG jailbreak utilities were patched some months ago by Apple with the release of iOS 8.1.3 - a patch that’s persisted throughout iOS 8.x updates, including iOS 8.3 and the four iOS 8.4 betas. Before the public, and jailbreakers the world over, can truly settle into contemplating future iOS 9 utilities, when will we receive the final jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4, which will certainly be the final chapter for iOS 8.x? Looking back, last year’s iOS 7.1.x Pangu jailbreak remained unpatched from June of 2014 until September, when Apple issued iOS 8.0 to the masses,which is crucial to  Having said that, when will the next jailbreak be released for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod touch 5 and other iOS-based devices? Will jailbreak teams skip iOS 8.3 and 8.4 all together to jailbreak iOS 9? For a closer look at what to expect when it comes to the future and jailbreaking, particularly in relation to iOS 8.4 and 9.0, continue past the break!

Forget iOS 8.3, Apple Watch Jailbreak Coming After K33N’s iOS 9 Jailbreak?

Apple Watch Jailbreak Coming After iOS 9 Utility? Forget About iOS 8.3 Jailbreak! - Recently, ensuing Apple’s WWDC last week and the release of iOS 9.0 beta 1, a new team dubbed K33N announced that they may have a major role to play in jailbreaking moving forward - specifically beyond the suspected forthcoming Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 for the inevitable iOS 9 update. However, what’s even more tantalizing is the prospect of an Apple Watch jailbreak. Currently, beyond developers being locked into creating apps strictly via WatchKit, apps don’t run natively on the Apple Watch - instead, apps run in the background on the iPhone the Watch is paired with and are mirrored to the device. With WatchOS 2 (the next major update for the Apple Watch that was announced alongside iOS 9 and WWDC), which is launching this fall, Apple is opening up native app development for the Watch. Having said that, there will still be limitations even for native apps: e.g. access to manipulating the core user interface isn’t permitted, as Apple wants to control the Apple Watch experience for all apps to maintain the same exquisite design standards the company is renowned for. As you can imagine, that doesn’t bode well for those seeking to customize their devices - enter, jailbreaking! For more on the future of jailbreak past iOS 8.3 and the latest news in Apple Watch jailbreaking, continue reading past the break.

PP Claims iOS 8.3 Jailbreak Release In July, After 8.4, K33N To Jailbreak iOS 9?

PP States iOS 8.3 Jailbreak to be Released in July, after 8.4, K33n’s iOS 9 Jailbreak Plans - Today, following the conclusion of WWDC on Monday, a few interesting developments in the realm of jailbreaking have come to light. Without an iOS 8.3 jailbreak from either TaiG or Pangu, those new to the scene are undoubtedly starting to panic as we approach one of the longest periods we’ve had to wait for a new jailbreak utility - second only to days of iOS 6 - iOS 7, when 6.1.3 patched the jailbreak in March, 2013 and we didn’t receive a new untethered utility until evasi0n7 in December, 2013. So, with Pangu having recently demonstrated their ability to jailbreak iOS 8.3 at MOSEC and with iOS 8.4 right around the corner, what can we expect as far as a new jailbreak for iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3? Interestingly, PP Assistant (the group behind the Mac OS X port of TaiG) recently shared their insider opinion on the topic. Moreover, what about moving forward - i.e. jailbreaking past iOS 8.3? According to new details from Forbes, an elite group of Chinese hackers dubbed Keen Team, also spelled K33n, may have their sights on jailbreaking iOS 9 once the firmware is made available to the public later this fall.

iOS 9 And WWDC 2015 Live Video Stream - Jailbreak Post 8.3, Apple Music And More

iOS 9 Beta Revealed Live at WWDC 2015 Video Stream, Jailbreak after iOS 8.3 - Fresh on the heels of news concerning Pangu’s new iOS 8.3 jailbreak demonstration at MOSEC on Friday, we’re on the cusp of another equally exciting, albeit not in the same manner, news cycle. Today, Apple is holding their annual Word Wide Developers Conference (commonly referred to as WWDC for short) at Moscone West in San Francisco, California. During this year’s conference Apple is expected to reveal both OS 10.11 and iOS 9: the next major iOS installment that is rumored to feature “Rootless” security, which may set Untethered jailbreak development back - though it won’t completely hinder it. While iOS 9 will be both unveiled to the masses and released to developers today, Apple won’t officially roll out the update to the public until later this year. Consequently, those interested in a new iOS 9 jailbreak post iOS 8.3 and 8.4 will unquestionably need to wait until the firmware is officially released and new iOS device models are made available (namely the iPhone 6s). Regardless of what the future holds for iOS and jailbreaking, this remains an exhilarating period for Apple fans - those of you seeking live video coverage from within the event itself and to be among the first to see all of iOS 9’s new features, continue reading.

Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Demoed By Pangu, Release After iOS 8.4?

Pangu Demonstrates Jailbreak iOS 8.3 Solution at MOSEC, Release After iOS 8.4? - Yesterday, just days before Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference on Monday, Pangu allegedly demonstrated an iOS 8.3 Untethered jailbreak at a security venue! During the aforementioned Apple-hosted conference, the company will unveil not only iOS 9, but also the next installment to OS X, being OS 10.11. However, for some, WWDC may be overshadowed by the jailbreak 8.3 presentation Pangu put on during MOSEC 2015, short for Mobile Security Conference. With Pangu having been all but forgotten by jailbreakers who maintain a short-term mentality when it comes to jailbreak utilities, Pangu is undoubtedly one of the greats. They were not only the first group to jailbreak iOS 8 through 8.1, but prior to that, they rushed to jailbreaker’s rescue last June to issue an iOS 7.1.x jailbreak when we were least expecting it. Is it possible that Pangu may once again save avid jailbreakers from the boredom that is vanilla iOS by delivering a solution to jailbreak all iOS 8 firmwares since Apple’s patch of the last TaiG untethered utility, being iOS 8.1.3, 8.2, 8.3 and even iOS 8.4? The latest on Pangu and additional information concerning TaiG and their jailbreak plans can be found after the break.

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak After iOS 8.4’s Release Date And New 0Day 8.4 Jailbreak Exploit?

Jailbreak iOS 8.3 After iOS 8.4’s Release Date, Plus New 0day Jailbreak 8.4 Exploit? - With Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC for short) rapidly approaching, a number of questions are undoubtedly surging through jailbreakers’ minds as each day passes without a new solution to jailbreak iOS 8.3, the current public firmware. However, as we’ve outlined a number of times throughout our articles, iOS 8.3 won’t necessarily be the target of the next jailbreak utility, instead it will be jailbroken by extension with the release of a new tool capable of jailbreaking iOS 8.4 (the successor to iOS 8.3). Having grasped that concept, when will iOS 8.4 make its grand appearance in the form of a public release? That’s a great question - with the latest iOS 8.4 beta firmware (being 8.4 beta 3) having been seeded to developers over three weeks ago on May 11th, 2015, we won’t receive another beta iteration of the firmware prior to it’s inevitable release. Today, let’s ponder said release and delve into possible iOS 8.4 release dates so that we’ll have a better understanding of when a new jailbreak utility for iOS 8.4 will be issued that will also be capable of jailbreaking iOS 8.1.3, 8.2 and 8.3: the three firmwares that have included Apple’s TaiG jailbreak-patching remedy. Also, there’s a slight possibility that a new vulnerability was discovered that’s capable of being exploited for the intent of implementation into a jailbreak 8.4 utility (though the chances may be slim considering it’s source). Continue reading for details on all of the aforementioned topics and more.

iOS 9 ‘Rootless’ Security: Jailbreaking Possible After iOS 8.3, iOS 8.4?

Post iOS 8.3 Jailbreak and 8.4, iOS 9’s “Rootless” Security - Yesterday, as the public waits for a new solution to jailbreak iOS 8.3 and the forthcoming iOS 8.4 firmware, interesting reports broke throughout the Apple blogosphere (originating from 9to5Mac) suggesting that iOS 9 will feature a new security initiative from Apple dubbed “Rootless“. While this isn’t the first time we’ve heard tale of increased security measures in the forthcoming iOS 9 release, in fact we recently covered it and dispelled rumors pertaining to the impossibility of jailbreaking post iOS 8.3, we now have additional information (alleged though it may be) as to how Apple may accomplish hindering future jailbreak development. To preface, both TaiG and Pangu have separately confirmed that they’re working on new jailbreak utilities independently (at least from what we know thus far) that are intended for iOS 8, specifically for iOS 8.4. However, as we’ve detailed a number of times, while iOS 8.3 remains the current public firmware, the next jailbreak utility, whether it be from TaiG or Pangu, will be heavily contingent upon iOS 8.4 and its release - see our past jailbreak article for further details. As for iOS 9 and the difficulties the jailbreak community may face moving forward beyond both iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4, continue past the break.
