Recently there has been much excitement and drama in the iOS jailbreak community. Last week's release of TaiG 2 for iOS 8.3 sent developers scrambling to update their packages for the latest firmware. The moment Cydia and countless tweaks were 8.3 ready, Apple Music launched on July 30 as part of the iOS 8.4 update. It was only hours until the first iOS 8.4 jailbreak entered the scene, however issues with the PP jailbreak tool have since come to light. TaiG immediately updated to version 2.2.0 for jailbreaking iOS 8.4, which is now recommended for all users over PPGhost.
The iOS 8.4 jailbreak has arrived. Just hours after the launch of Apple Music the PP jailbreak tool has been updated to version 2.3.0. The latest PP jailbreaks devices running iOS 8.1.3-8.4. This news comes hot on the heels of last week's iOS 8.3 jailbreak from TaiG team. While the PP tool is currently Windows-only, previous releases from PP have supported OS X. Those with jailbroken devices can now update to iOS 8.4 without losing their tweaks and customizations.
As promised, Apple has included a fix for the "Unicode of Death" bug in the fourth iOS 8.4 beta. The annoying bug crashes a user's iPhone after someone sends them a specific series of unicode characters through messaging apps such as iMessage and WhatsApp. Apple publicly acknowledged the problem in May, and issued a temporary fix through apple.com.
