Big news on the jailbreaking front, as Apple has stopped signing iOS 8.4 firmware. This means updating (or downgrading) to iOS 8.4 is no longer possible. Jailbroken users on earlier firmware versions are stuck at the moment, as updating to iOS 8.4.1 results in a stock device with no public option to jailbreak. Those running iOS 8.4 can still jailbreak at any time using TaiG 2.
TaiG team has finally released a Mac version of their popular iOS 8.1.3-8.4 jailbreak tool. Now OS X users can install Cydia in a few simple steps to enjoy Apple Music and f.lux. The latest version fixes bugs that were found to affect OS X 10.9. Anyone who has been waiting for the dust to settle around the iOS 8.4 jailbreak can go forward at this time. TaiG 2 for Mac is stable and ready for action.
Despite the TaiG team warning against plagiarism at 25PP, a new Mac version of the PP Jailbreak tool has been released. For OS X users who want to jailbreak iOS 8.4 immediately PP 2 makes this possible without having to use a virtual machine. Undoubtedly the TaiG team is working on their own Mac jailbreak solution for iOS 8.4 for those who prefer to wait. In the meantime, PP 2 has already been used to successfully jailbreak devices running iOS 8.1.3 through iOS 8.4 on Mac computers. Once the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is properly set up the jailbreak process takes place with two clicks.
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.
