Here’s how to jailbreak your device running on iOS 8.1.1 or iOS 8.2 beta using TaiG jailbreak.

Some important points before you proceed:

Please proceed with caution, as Taig is known for running an app store with pirated apps in China. The name Taig might be familiar to you, as it was the center of controversy when this pirated app store was bundled with evasi0n7, and later removed. We’re yet to get a confirmation from any well known hacker that the jailbreak is safe.

TaiG jailbreak supports following iOS 8.1.1, iOS 8.2 beta devices:

iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S

iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2

iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini

iPod touch 5G

TaiG jailbreak also supports iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 but it may be advisable to use the Pangu jailbreak for it.

TaiG jailbreak is currently available only for Windows. For now, Mac users will have to run Windows in a virtual machine to use the TaiG jailbreak.

Use iCloud or iTunes to back up any and all personal information that you need to keep safe. The jailbreak has been reported to be working in most cases, but on the off chance something goes wrong, it’s a good idea to have an escape plan.

Disable any Anti-virus programs or firewalls that could prevent TaiG from connecting to the internet.

Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 using TaiG jailbreak:

Follow these instructions to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 using TaiG jailbreak.

Step 1: Download the latest version of TaiG jailbreak from this link on your computer, and unzip the zip file.

Step 2: Connect your device to your computer using the USB cable.

Step 3: Disable Passcode from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode.

Step 4: Also turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone.

Step 5: Please launch the application as an Administrator. Right click on the TaiG exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

Step 6: TaiG will take some time to detect your device. Once you confirm that it is showing the correct firmware version, deselect the TaiG App Store (the one in Chinese), just below Cydia 1.1.16.

Step 7: Click on the green jailbreak button to proceed. You will see the circular progress bar.

Step 8: After the jailbreak is complete, your device will reboot automatically, and you should should see the Cydia icon on the Home screen .

Troubleshooting tips

If you’ve updated over-the-air to the latest iOS 8.0.x or iOS 8.1.1, and the jailbreak didn’t succeed, try doing a fresh install of iOS 8.1.1 via iTunes.

Nice find!

Redmond Pie has a tutorial and does acknowledge that it works, but hasn't listed any problems (the jailbreak has only been out for a short time)

MuscleNerd, i0n1c, and iH8sn0w have all talked about the jailbreak on Twitter, although i0n1c was the only one who actually used the jailbreak (and got a "green face", meaning it succeeded). MuscleNerd didn't say anything against using the jailbreak, but he did recommend waiting a few days before using it for bugs (implying it could be used). iH8sn0w criticized TaiG for their timing, since 8.1 is still being signed, and this is only a ".1 update", asking why they couldn't wait until 8.2.

Obviously it works, but Redmond Pie pointed out that you need to uncheck a box (similar to Pangu) which installs unnecessary software (the TaiG App Store), so there could be other undesirables from this jailbreak. It does works on the 8.2 beta (according to Redmond Pie).

@Nocturnal Found a guide for Mac users (it does require using a VM, of course) but you should put it in if you think it's useful.

Good luck to all those jailbreaking!

MuscleNerd confirms TaiG iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak is safe

A couple of days back, we were surprised to learn that TaiG, the Chinese company that runs a pirated app store, had released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2.

In our announcement post, we had asked readers to proceed with caution, because this is the first time TaiG has released a jailbreak. Today, MuscleNerd, member of the evad3rs team, confirmed that the TaiG jailbreak is safe and contains nothing “too unsettling.”

The “light fingerprinting” MuscleNerd writes refers to some data that TaiG sends back to its server, which you can see here. But MuscleNerd says this isn’t very serious, and recommends jailbreakers to update from iOS 8.1 to iOS 8.1.1 with TaiG.
