Taig JailBreak Tool (iOS 8 to 8.2 Beta 2 except 8.1.3)

Hi Guys,

In an earlier post, we discussed about jailbreaking iOS 7 via Pangu JailBreak Tool. Today, we are gonna discuss about the Taig JailBreak Tool, which is used to jailbreak devices running with Apple’s iOS. Generally it is used to jailbreak iOS 8.x. You can check your iOS version in Settings > General > About > Version. We will discuss every aspect of Taig jailbreak in brief. So, let us start.

What is Taig JailBreak Tool?

A tool named Taig have been released by the Taig Team which allows for an untethered jailbreak on devices, running iOS 8.0.x to iOS 8.2 Beta 2. Note it doesn’t jailbreak iOS 8.1.3.

Who are the Taig Team?

Team Taig first launched their jailbreak tool on 29 November 2014 which could jailbreak iOS 8.0 to iOS 8.1.2. Not much is known about this group of Jailbreakers, except that they are Chinese Developers or Hackers. We can say that confidently because both their tool and site as well are in Chinese language 😉 . In 2015, they updated and revised their existing jailbreak techniques to further develop the tool to make it able to jailbreak iOS 8.2 Beta 2.

How to get it?

iOS 8

To use the Taig JailBreak Tool to root your iOS device, first you need to install Taig, which is easily available to download via the following link of Google Drive. Download it in your Windows PC. Here’s the link –

Taig JailBreak Tool for iOS 8.2 Beta 2 – drive.google.com/TaiGJBreak_EN_1.300.zip

How to use it?

Preparation –

i) After downloading the zipped file, unzip it in your PC.
ii) Install iTunes, if not installed already via link 32 bit OR 64 bit.
iii) Backup your device using iTunes (or iCloud) before using Taig. If something breaks, you’ll always be able to recover your data. (Personally I prefer to reset my iPhone and not making a full backup, that’s too slow. iCloud is still a better option regarding speed).
iv) Those who use backup passwords in iTunes must disable them for now. After doing so, iTunes makes a brand new backup. Please wait for that backup to complete before proceeding! Feel free to re-enable your backup password after jailbreaking.
v) Disable the lock pass-code of your iOS device before using PanGu via Settings > General > Pass-code Lock.
vi) Disable Find my iPhone and enable AirPlane Mode via Settings.

JailBreaking –

vii) Launch iTunes, plug-in your device, once iTunes identifies your device, Launch Taig and kill iTunes via Windows Task Manager.
viii) Keep the Cydia option checked. Make sure to uncheck the second option of 3K assistant or something like that.
ix) Click the green button of “Start” in the bottom part of Taig window. Just sit back and see its progress.
x) Avoid using your device or iTunes related tasks until the process is complete. You can just enjoy a brief break from the computer to stretch your legs.
xi) {Optional step} If the process gets stuck somewhere, it’s safe to restart the program, reboot the device (by holding the Power and Home button simultaneously until the Apple Logo appears), and restart the process.
xii) Once the process is done, you will find the “Cydia” app on your home screen which is your AppStore for JailBroken devices.
xiii) You can also set a pass code and enable Find my iPhone. Do disable the Airplane mode.
xiv) Now enjoy your jailbroken device.

Precautions –

xv) If you try to update your device’s iOS version through the phone itself (i.e. OTA Updates), it will un – jailbreak your device. Because in higher versions of iOS, often the security holes are patched. These security holes are used to exploit and root the phone which are present in earlier version of iOS.
xvi) But you can again jailbreak the newer version of iOS too. 😉
