iOS 8.3 Untethered Jailbreak Released for iPhone and iPad

Chinese team TaiG has released an iOS 8.3 untethered jailbreak tool on Windows for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. TaiG warns that some jailbreak tweaks are not compatible with iOS 8.3 as Jay Freeman (saurik) has yet to update Cydia Substrate/Mobile Substrate to be compatible with the latest jailbreak. An iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool for OS X has not been released.

iOS 8.3 Jailbreak TaiG
Jailbreaking enables iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users to install unapproved third-party apps, tweaks, mods, custom themes, utilities, and other content (called "packages") from Cydia, which is essentially an App Store alternative for jailbroken devices. In other words, jailbreaking allows users to further customize and enhance their iOS devices beyond the limits that Apple imposes.

It is highly recommended that you back up your data through iTunes or iCloud before attempting to jailbreak your device, as there are various issues that could require downgrading or restoring your device and result in data loss. TaiG offers more information on its Twitter and has posted step-by-step instructions on how to use the iOS 8.3 untethered jailbreak on its website.

TaiG 2.0 supports iOS 8.1.3 - iOS 8.3.

If you think about it, it's actually great timing. 8.4 GM comes tomorrow, so Apple doesn't have the time to fix their bugs, also since they've announced that 8.4 comes with Apple Music, this leaves them with no option but to leave the loopholes as it is, and probably patch them with 8.4.1.

Does anybody still care?

Of course. Until f.lux is built in, I'll keep jailbreaking.

It's been said that the latest 8.4 beta fixes their exploits anyway, so there wasn't really any reason to wait.

Half the comments in this thread are the reason that jailbreaking news should be in the jailbreak section and not ios news section.

To wait for an updated TaiG tool, or to sleep. that is the question... if it really is a 2 byte patch to the kernel to fix the substrate issues, I wonder why it is taking them this long.


Maybe they have lives to live and things to do besides trying to please us with a free tool to JB.......

One of the reasons that I am glad I kept my Surface Pro 3 after buying a MBP.

I'm waiting till Cydia works though.

Obviously. There are still things we can do by jailbreaking that iOS still does not allow.
