    Apple Stops Signing iOS 8.2 Beta 2 And 1; What Jailbreak Users Need To Know



    Although with iOS 8.1.3, Apple’s software team halted the joyride that has seen a jailbreak perpetually available since the launch of iOS 8, quick-thinking hackers found a tenacious workaround in the form of iOS 8.2 betas 1 and 2. While the exploits that made a jailbreak possible were plugged in iOS 8.2 beta 3 and up, those first two pre-release builds were left unchecked, and since, many eager to use Cydia have jumped on this opportunity. Now, somewhat predictably, Apple has thrown a spanner in the works.

    As per an announcement by the folks at TaiG, Apple has ceased to sign iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2, meaning that if you’re not running either of the specified betas or a pre-iOS 8.1.3 public release, then you’re not going to be able to reap the benefits of a jailbreak for the time being.





    Since there was no expiry on iOS 8.2 betas 1 and 2, it was naively hoped that we had a jailbreak that would always be available. Apple had other ideas, of course, and so if you are partial to a tweak or two, do not update your device at all, since the only builds being signed are not jailbreakable.

    We’ll keep you guys updated on any further info pertaining to jailbreaks, so stay tuned to our coverage here!
