Jailbreak TaiG 8.4: How to Avoid ALL Issues
1. If your iOS device is running 8.4 and was updated via Apple’s OTA (over-the-air) update feature inside the settings app, you must complete the below “Important Steps” segment.
Important Steps: OTA iOS 8.x users need to restore by backing up inside of iTunes, restoring to iOS 8.4 (provided 8.4 is the latest firmware, if an 8.4.x update is issued following the publication of this article, you must live with the complications OTA jailbreaks inevitably cause), restore from your backup and proceed with the jailbreak.
2. Confirm that you have a Windows-based PC or a Mac with OS X, which is now Officially supported by TaiG (see the below Mac OS X iOS 8.4 jailbreak TaiG video), but if you encounter issues on OS X, we advise creating a virtual machine, setting up Windows in Bootcamp or borrowing a Windows PC.
iTunes Downgrade Steps: If TaiG encounters issues jailbreaking 8.4 on your device, you may be required to downgrade iTunes to 12.0.1 (though this should be a moot point). To accomplish such a feat, simply open Control Panel and uninstall everything from Apple Inc., being iTunes, Bonjour, Apple Application Support, Apple Mobile Device Support and Apple Software Update. Next, navigate to your local disk (c:) > users > your name > Music and rename the iTunes library. Finally, reboot your PC and install iTunes 12.0.1 from the below downloads.

Finally, with out any additional delay, you can now continue with the final set of instructions to jailbreak iOS 8.4 untethered on your iPhone, iPod or iPad!
Step 1. Beyond downloading TaiG 2.4.3, you may also need to obtain iTunes 12.0.1 from the below download section if you encounter problems.
Step 2. Disable Find my Device inside of the iCloud portion of the Settings app (the name is dynamic depending on your device, it will either be dubbed Find my iPhone, Find my iPad or Find my iPod), Auto lock and Passcode lock “& Touch ID” features on your iOS 8.4-powered device.
Step 3. Uncheck the “3K Assistant” box toward the bottom of TaiG’s interface to prohibit the installation of the third-party Chinese software distribution platform. Aside from Cydia, absolutely nothing will be installed on your device, provided you uncheck the bottom box – TaiG is confirmed to be one of the safest jailbreaks ever created.
Step 4. Click the large “Start” button inside of TaiG to continue, leave your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch connected to your computer and confirm that everything functions properly (just allow 10 minutes for each stage, if TaiG appears to be stuck, refer to the above “Important Steps”).
Once your iOS 8.4 device reboots, you’ll be greeted by an welcome sight - Cydia! Simply launch the app for the tweak distribution platform and refer to the below note.
Important Note: Upon opening Cydia for the first time, allow the app to properly Reorganize the Filesystem on iOS 8.4; if this stage is interrupted, you may be forced into restoring.
For those of you who aren’t interested in using Windows, you can utilize TaiG for Mac to jailbreak iOS 8.4 untethered. The jailbreak steps are virtually identical to the ones we’ve supplied above for TaiG on Windows, save the fact the the utility requires dragging it to the Applications folder prior to running it.
Congratulations, after only four simple and easy steps, you’ve managed to successfully jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch running Apple’s latest firmware with Apple Music!
