Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Using TaiG

TaiG released a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 devices this morning, roughly two weeks after Apple closed the latest Pangu jailbreak by releasing iOS 8.1.1. For those unfamiliar with the 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 long-time jailbreak community patriarch MuscleNerd speculates that it likely had something to do with money.

TaiG jailbreak supports the following devices:
  • iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad, iPad Air, iPad Air 2
  • iPod touch 5G
The tool works not only with iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.2 beta, but even with previous releases of iOS 8 — iOS 8.1. It’s however wise to continue using Pangu for those devices, as that tool has been found safe whereas we’re still waiting for a word on Taig’s jailbreak tool.

It’s quite strange that TaiG released an untethered jailbreak without waiting for iOS 8.2 beta to go public, as now it gives Apple the opportunity to patch the exploit in the final public release of iOS 8.2. Musclenerd speculates that TaiG and Pangu, both teams from China, are in a race to release the jailbreak, and that there’s huge money involved for whoever gets there first.

The tool is currently available for Windows users...
