TaiG Talks About Future iOS 8.2 Jailbreak, Mac Support and more

Most of people now talking about TaiG iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak which was released in the last few days. Right now I am so glad to tell you that TaiG has posted an FAQ of sorts for their jailbreak where they answer some of the most pressing questions.

In the FAQ made by TaiG, we knew why the team decided to roll with iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak as opposite to waiting it out. We also learn that iOS 8.2 is indeed supported in the jailbreak (it’s just disabled for the time being). Along with that, additional interesting tidbits have surfaced regarding the Mac version of TaiG. Yes, a Mac version is being worked on, and it could possibly be released in the future.

After Apple prevented downgrading to iOS 8.1, we shall see a new update for TaiG tool very soon.

Here’s what TaiG had to say about the timing of the jailbreak. Keep in mind that this has been translated from Chinese, so the English grammar isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough to get the point:
Releasing a stable iOS version around Thanksgiving, and maintain it until the first quarter of next year, has been usual practice of Apple, which means 8.1.1 will be around for quite some time, and it is a relatively stable firmware. These are the main reasons that TaiG chose to release JB for 8.1.1. In addition, signing of 8.1 is closed earlier today, thus it could be a good time to update to 8.1.1 and jailbreak.
They are saying that the waiting provides little to no benefit to users.

What about the people behind this awesome jailbreak ? Who are they ? How many of them worked on this jailbreak ? Still many clouds around the actual people who worked on the jailbreak, but we do know that there was one primary person responsible for the entire jailbreak.

TaiG is also very confident about the jailbreak possibilities of future iOS firmwares going forward. They do acknowledged, however, that jailbreaking isn’t exactly easy, and that a lot of effort was expended to make this happen. With this in mind, the TaiG team hopes (at least publicly) that they can work together with the Pangu team in a collaborative effort to expedite the process of releasing future jailbreaks:
Luckily we have some fellows domestically, if we can cooperate, it will bring more benifits [sic] for all users. Thus we sincerely invite PanGu Team for a face-to-face communication, to find a way of cooperation for providing faster and better jailbreak sevice [sic] together.  
The team acknowledge the existence of many bug request fixes that users asked for and they said that they are working very hard to fix these bugs as soon as possible.

But that’s not all! In a separate interview with Chinese website feng.com, TaiG divulges more juicy details. Most notably, they talk about the existence of a Mac version of the TaiG jailbreak tool, something that many are interested in seeing sooner than later. Responding to the question of if a Mac version is being made, TaiG states (emphasis, mine):
We are making it. But it’s not decided if it will be released or when.
Other supplementary details are revealed in that interview as well. If you read Chinese, you can visit the site itself here. Otherwise, you can visit this thread on /r/jailbreak where someone has graciously translated the text into English.

Such interviews and conversations make it more clear for people who were afraid of jailbreaking and taking such step, right ? 

More importantly, however, I think that the future of jailbreak is very bright. These guys seem to be extremely confident in their ability to bring new jailbreaks to the table to coincide with Apple firmware releases. Unfortunately, it looks as if the Mac version will indeed always lag behind the Windows version. It probably wouldn’t hurt if you make your wishes known regarding a Mac version down in the comment section.
