How to Jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 with Mac OS X

Mac users can now jailbreak the latest version of iOS thanks to the PP Jailbreak tool. While those with Windows machines have been able to use TaiG to jailbreak iOS 8.1.x since Black Friday, OS X has finally joined the party. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to jailbreak any version of iOS from iOS 8.0 to iOS 8.1.2 with PP Jailbreak on Mac OS X.

iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak PP Mac

First make sure the iOS device (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch) is restored to iOS 8.0 or later. To help prevent problems, do not update OTA using iOS. It is recommended to restore directly to iOS 8.1.2 using the latest version of iTunes on a computer. Those with previously jailbroken devices should backup, then restore to stock iOS 8.1.2 using iTunes. Once the restore is complete, follow these steps to install PP Jailbreak:

iOS 8.1.2 Does Not Patch TaiG Jailbreak

It has been confirmed that iOS 8.1.2 does not patch the kernel exploit used in the TaiG jailbreak and it is safe for iOS users with jailbroken devices to upgrade. However, most jailbreakers will probably want to stay at iOS 8.1 or 8.1.1 since there are really no reasons to upgrade unless you purchase ringtones.

iOS 8.1.1 was released mainly to increase stability and performance on older Apple hardware, such as the iPhone 4s and iPad 2, and iOS 8.1.2 fixes a bug that was affecting ringtone purchases. You will only want to upgrade if you're experiencing performance problems since installing iOS 8, you purchase ringtones or if you just like being up to date.

Apple Releases iOS 8.1.2 to Fix Ringtone Bug

Apple has released iOS 8.1.2 three weeks after releasing its last maintenance update in November, and one week after the TaiG team released their iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool. It is unknown at this time if the update breaks the TaiG jailbreak. This means users with Pangu or TaiG installed on their device should not update if they want to remain jailbroken.
