TaiG team released a jailbreak today for iOS 8.1.1 devices. TaiG team, they were behind the third-party Chinese app store-evad3rs controversy last fall.
It’s surprising that the team chose to release at this time, given that the previous jailbreak has only be defunct for a few weeks, and Apple is in the middle of testing iOS 8.2. But you know who release Jailbreak first, money go to that team.
It’s very easy to Jailbreak. According to Taig’s website, the new jailbreak is compatible with iOS 8.0-iOS 8.1.1 on the following devices:
If you want to jailbreak your device, you should always backup your device. Something goes wrong in this process, TaiG Team recommend doing a fresh restore/install of the latest compatible firmware before proceeding, as it tends to make things run much more smoothly. Additionally, the TaiG team asks that users disable their Lock screen passcodes and the “Find My iPhone” feature, as they can potentially interfere with the app’s jailbreaking process.
TaiG jailbreak utility is Windows-only right now. There is no info about Mac version will be available. Users can install Cydia during the install process, along with something called “3k助手.”
The jailbreak works great with iOS 8.1.1, but some users are running into issues with beta 2. If you want to check it out, you can find TaiG here, and be sure to tell us about your experience down in the comments.
