Many iPhone users have spent months waiting for the iOS 8.3 jailbreak to get a stable release. After several false rumors you can finally use a very easy method to get the much-anticipated jailbreak on your iDevice. TaiG is not a new tool by any means, but lately it has began surpassing some of its counterparts in popularity. The latest release, TaiG 2.0, is almost completely stable. In addition to the iOS 8.3 jailbreak, it also brings stability to pre-existing jailbreaks of iOS 8.1.3 and iOS 8.2. The best part is that using TaiG is extremely uncomplicated. The method is almost one-click, though for now you will have to take a few precautions to get everything right.
As can be expected, you can’t get your hands on all available Cydia tweaks with the iOS 8.3 jailbreak. Cydia will be updated by its curator Saurik within the next few days, and only then will users be able to enjoy the likes of WinterBoard and even a few less famous tweaks. Cydia isn’t completely unusable though, and if you want to check for yourself, here is what needs to be done.
Pre-requisites for iOS 8.3 Jailbreak
- A Windows computer, since TaiG 2.0 hasn’t been released for Mac just yet.
- Your iPhone’s connecting USB cable.
- The correct version of TaiG 2.0 downloaded from the service’s official page (linked at the end of this post).
- Of course, your device needs to be compatible with TaiG. Here are the iDevices that work with TaiG 2.0;
i) All iPhone models including and later than iPhone 4s
ii) All iPad models including and later than iPad 2
The iPhone touch (5th generation) is compatible with the untethered iOS 8.3 jailbreak as well
- Take a backup of your iPhone’s important data via iTunes, or any other method of your choice. No significant problems have been reported yet, but it never hurts to be extra safe.
- Disable your system’s firewall and antivirus protection.
- It also pays to have your device’s internal security turned off. This includes passcode lock and ‘Find My iPhone’ features.
- Open the TaiG archive mentioned in the 3rd step of pre-requisites.
- Locate the EXE file in this archive and right-click it. From the resulting context menu, choose the ‘Run as administrator’ option.
- Once TaiG has been launched, and it shows your device’s model number on its main screen, you are good to go. Wait for the program to bring up an options menu.
- Uncheck the option named ‘3K Assistant 2.3.0’
- Click ‘Start’ and wait for your device to reboot.
Make sure you don’t disconnect your device while TaiG is working its magic. At the completion of the process, you will see the ‘Jailbreak Successful’ notification on the Windows application’s main screen.
TaiG 2.0 is fairly easy to use, and users haven’t reported any major problems with it. So, if you have been waiting to get the iOS 8.3 jailbreak on your iPhone, go ahead and download TaiG.
