Update: Taig jailbreak team has released iOS 8.1.2 and iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool that can jailbreak iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, 5, 5c, 4s, all iPads and iPod touch 5 both on iOS 8.1.2 and iOS 8.1.1. You can read more about release here.
Apple has finally shut the doors on iOS 8.1.1. It is no longer being singed, meaning, you can no longer downgrade iOS 8.1.2 to 8.1.1. You can also no longer restore or update to iOS 8.1.1 from a previous version of iOS on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Apple released iOS 8.1.1 back in November, followed by iOS 8.1.2 only last week.
Since releasing its iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool some days ago, the TaiG team has continued to push swift updates, and following the recent introduction of English language support, TaiG v1.1.0 has just been rolled out. Details on what’s new, as well as the relevant download information, can be seen below.
As you’ll likely have heard by now, the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool has offered an untethered jailbreak for those running the very latest iOS 8.1.1, which is somewhat miraculous given that Apple only rolled the software out a fortnight ago. Now that the dust has settled and presumably thousands of iOS device owners have gone ahead and jailbroken their devices, TaiG has released a statement clarifying its new tool, as well as alluding to potential collaborative ventures with the famed Pangu team.
The TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool download has brought a belated Thanksgiving gift to those looking to get Cydia up and running on iOS 8.1.1 or the currently in-beta iOS 8.2, and given that, like Pangu before it, it’s untethered in nature, one can simply follow the steps, apply the jailbreak, and proceed without subsequent interruption. As is the case when any new, untried or unheard tool simply lands right out of the blue, the jailbreak community has taken the past couple of days to digest the news, with trusted jailbreakers having given it the once-over, and with MuscleNerd today declaring TaiG as being safe to use, the games have most definitely begun. Now, TaiG has released a minor update in the form of version 1.0.2, which adds the ability to remove the 3K Assistant that can be optionally installed at the point of jailbreak.
Jailbreaking has always been a giant game of cops and robbers, with Apple constantly closing the loopholes that the creators of jailbreaks rely on in order to gain access to the core of iOS. Just as a new jailbreak is released it's a given that the exploit used will not be available in the next revision of the iPhone and iPad operating system.
