Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered Tutorial; TaiG or Pangu, How to Jailbreak 8.4 by Downgrading 8.4.1 Guide - As we progress forward into 2015, a question that’s gnawing at the back of mind of the jailbreak world as a whole is ‘how can I jailbreak iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.4.1?’ Thankfully, as the result of hundreds of hours of hard and dedicated work from TaiG and Saurik, the former of the two firmwares has been jailbroken! Having said that, what about supported devices and jailbreaking 8.4 for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and older iOS 8-capable devices? The latest version of TaiG does indeed function on all iOS-based devices that’s capable of updated to iOS 8.4 and is able to deliver an untethered jailbreak iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 solution. However, what about Apple’s latest iOS 8.4.1 release, how will it affect the future of jailbreaking - will we be able to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1?

Pangu Jailbreaks iOS 8.4.1 Untethered at HackPwn 2015 - Last week, Apple released iOS 8.4.1 to the public, effectively patching the latest TaiG Untethered iOS 8.4 jailbreak utility. However, unlike iOS 8.1.3 (being the last jailbreak-patching firmware), iOS 8.4.1’s impact on jailbreaking extends far beyond the latest jailbreak. When Apple issued 8.4.1 the company did so with security at the forefront of their intentions - e.g. iOS 8.4.1 closed not only vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG for 8.4, but also several utilized by former Pangu and evasi0n jailbreak tools that the company left unattended until now. In other words, iOS 8.4.1 was, and is, a massive threat to jailbreakers. However, earlier today Pangu (the group behind both the iOS 7.1.x and iOS 8.1 jailbreak utilities by the same name) demonstrated that the group has achieved a new untethered jailbreak on iOS 8.4.1 just over a week after the devastating firmware’s release at the 2015 HackPwn security conference. Great news for jailbreakers, right? Well, maybe not, continue reading past the break for complete details on the latest turn of events concerning the possibility of an iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak from Pangu!
iOS 8.4.1 Released, is it Possible to Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 and Should I Update? - Today, following approximately one month of developer beta testing, Apple released iOS 8.4.1 to the general public. iOS 8.4.1, being the first general iOS release since the company issued iOS 8.4 to introduce Apple Music, is a rather unfortunate release for jailbreakers, as it patches the Untethered TaiG iOS 8.4 jailbreak that was released at the end of June. With a build number of 12H321, iOS 8.4.1 is available for immediate download either as an OTA software update in the Settings app or via the traditional iTunes method. However, those of you who are currently jailbroken on iOS 8.4 or earlier should avoid the new firmware release at all costs. The latest iOS 8.4.1 firmware is an incredibly minor release and, therefore, knowing that iOS 8.4.1 won’t introduce any noticeable features, updating to iOS 8.4.1 certainly doesn’t justify the loss of one’s iOS 8.4 TaiG jailbreak. Continue reading past the break for additional information pertaining to not only TaiG, but also how iOS 8.4.1 likely effects the jailbreak!
iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 Released by Apple, will TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered? - Today, without any prior indication, roughly two weeks and two days following its initial seed, Apple issued iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 for developers. iOS 8.4.1, being the firmware that’s expected to patch the TaiG jailbreak (though a miracle could still happen - see video below for details), is an extremely minor update likely featuring bug fixes and optimizations. Currently, those who update to the beta seed from a jailbroken device on iOS 8.4 will forfeit their Untethered TaiG 8.4 jailbreak, as the latest Untethered utility isn’t compatible with the beta firmware, regardless of whether Apple closed TaiG’s exploits in 8.4.1 beta 2. As of now, any release timeframe would be based on conjecture and speculation, though seeing as the firmware appears as though it’s a very minor update, we likely won’t see an iOS 8.4.1 beta 3 release prior to 8.4.1’s public availability. To learn more about the new iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 release and whether we’ll be able to jailbreak 8.4.1 post iOS 8.4, continue reading past the break.
iPhone 6S, 6S Plus Rumors & Leaks, iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak plus iPad, iPod Touch 6 Giveaways - Today, as we prepare for iOS 8.4.1, which may very well patch the Untethered TaiG jailbreak iOS 8.4 utility, the staff at Evasi0n Jailbreak opted to stray from the norm slightly. In today’s article, we’ll not only highlight the iPhone 6S, but also several intriguing giveaways, including a free $100 Amazon Gift Card, an iPod touch 6th Generation and an iPad Air 2! Starting with the former of the two topics, aside from jailbreaking and 8.4, the most intriguing topic for Apple enthusiast is undoubtedly the next-generation iPhone or, in this case, iPhones (plural). When Apple released the larger 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus respectively, they essentially set a new dual size standard for iPhone refreshes. Likely dubbed the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple’s new iPhones are slated for both announcement and release later this fall, almost certainly in September. For the latest iPhone 6S leaks and rumors, as well as instructions for entering the giveaways (totally in $800 worth of prizes), continue reading!
Apple Releases 8.4.1 beta 1, TaiG to Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered? - Today, in a completely unexpected release, Apple seeded iOS 8.4.1 to developers ensuing last week’s public release of both iOS 8.4 and the company’s new Apple Music streaming service. Unfortunately, jailbreakers running iOS 8.3 or 8.4 will certainly be threatened by iOS 8.4.1’s inevitable public release. iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 carries a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12H304, versus 12H14 - such a minor jump is indicative of very minor changes. Today’s new iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 seed is available for immediate download via Apple’s newly revamped Developer portal. As far as jailbreaking is concerned, as alluded to above, the firmware may very well patch the TaiG iOS 8.4 jailbreak once it’s issued to the public, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered utilizing TaiG. However, seeing as iOS 8.4.1. is one of the most discrete beta releases we’ve seen, jailbreakers could also be in for a surprise following 8.4.1’s release. For additional details pertaining to Apple’s new 8.4.1 beta 1 release, as well as the current Untethered TaiG 8.4 jailbreak, continue reading past the break!
