Good news for anyone holding off on jailbreaking iOS 8.3. The TaiG jailbreak tool has officially been updated to version 2.1.2. The new release brings several bug fixes and support for Cydia Substrate, which has been updated for iOS 8.3. Most issues facing early adopters of the initial release have been resolved, including problems related to newer versions of iTunes. Users who have already jailbroken their devices do not have to re-jailbreak, but there are updates that must be installed to prevent future issues.
The TaiG team announced a new version of the TaiG jailbreak tool just days before the launch of iOS 8.4. Now iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users running iOS 8.1.3-8.3 can jailbreak in a few easy steps. Of course, there are usually caveats for early adopters and TaiG 2.0.0 is no different.
UPDATE: TaiG has been updated to 2.2.0. This version jailbreaks iOS 8.4, is more stable and fixes several issues. Follow the instructions below to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on Windows.
The TaiG team has released a new jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3. TaiG version 2.0.0 was released several days before iOS 8.4 is set to launch on June 30. iPhone and iPad owners can download the jailbreak tool at taig.com/en/, but before you do please note that the Cydia Substrate is not compatible with iOS 8.3, and some users are having issues installing the jailbreak.
Apple on Monday released the second beta of iOS 8.3 to developers. The second version features several new languages for Siri including "Russian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and English for India," according to 9to5Mac. This is the first time that Siri has learned any new languages since iOS 6.0 was released in 2012.
Developers have also discovered that iOS 8.3 includes a new Wireless CarPlay feature, a more diverse Emoji picker, support for Apple Pay in China and that Siri's speech has been tweaked.
iOS 8.3 beta 3 is now available as OTA update from the Developer Center.
The jailbreaking community was spoiled in 2014 with not one, but two jailbreaks for iOS 8. The Pangu Team released the first iOS 8.0 jailbreak tool in October, before the TaiG team shocked everyone by releasing an untethered iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak on Black Friday. The TaiG jailbreak survived one iOS update before Apple finally killed it off today with the release of iOS 8.1.3.
iOS 8.1.3 is only a basic maintenance release to improve performance and stability. The release did not add any new major features, but it did patch the exploits used by the TaiG jailbreak tool, according to the official support page. This of course means anyone with a jailbroken iPhone or iPad should avoid upgrading to iOS 8.1.3 if they want to keep their device jailbroken.
