    How to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1

    There’s a new jailbreak in town



    Here’s how the game of iOS cat-and-mouse jailbreak works. A team releases a working jailbreak for the most recent version of iOS to the public. Apple moves to eliminate the exploit that made the last jailbreak possible, releases a new version of iOS, and stops ‘signing’ previous jailbreakable versions of iOS, meaning they can no longer be installed on devices. Rinse and repeat.

    The last version of iOS, iOS 8.1.1, closed the hole that made the Pangu jailbreak possible. But now a new jailbreak has been released, that will jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 on any device. Here’s how to install it.

    The jailbreak is called TaiG. It’s in Chinese, and it only works on Windows (although running it in a Windows virtual machine also works fine), but it jailbreaks every version of iOS from iOS 8.0 to iOS 8.1.1, and it works like a charm.

    To install the jailbreak, download the TaiG tool, extract its contents, and run the tool as an administrator. For the device you intend to jailbreak, turn off ‘Find My iPhone’ and disable your passcode under ‘Settings’, then enable AirPlane mode. Plug your device into your computer, and when TaiG recognizes your device, uncheck the second box (the one that doesn’t say Cydia) and hit the green button. When you see the smiley face, your jailbreak is done!

    Of course, with Apple still signing iOS 8.1, it seems a little odd that a perfectly good jailbreak technique would be squandered on iOS 8.1.1 when it could have been held back for iOS 8.2. But I suppose we shouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth.




    Download the TaiG tool

    Can corroborate that the utility works. Boot and respring timers have been hit with quite a noticeable difference in that it does so a lot quicker relative to Pangu8. Don't have my laptop to decompile the utility, but from net tests, it's not sending anything back to the motherland on data/WiFi like the XiaoMi situation a little while back, it's not caching personal information like the AppBuyer malware did, but the same exploits used is patched on iOS 8.2 beta even with a device/iOS identifier mod though it was said that it would work with iOS 8.2, so not sure with that regards, but 8.2 beta doesn't have a major impact on anything else so the state of the jailbreak as it is fine. Will try to decompile it to see what it specifically exploits to get the job done.

    If you're experiencing some stock issues on 8.1 and below, you can backup then restore back to stock 8.1.1 and use TaiG to see if it improves/resolves the issue. If not, you can always revert to 8.1 as it's still being signed by Apple, so you can downgrade and rejailbreak with Pangu8.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to check this out.
