Thread: How to Jailbreak Your iOS 8.1.1 or 8.1.2 Device With TaiG for Windows

  1. #1
    Default How to Jailbreak Your iOS 8.1.1 or 8.1.2 Device With TaiG for Windows


    TaiG released an official jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.1.2, which is the latest public firmware Apple has released that patches the Pangu8 jailbreak. It is Windows-only, but it works; a Mac OS X version of the tool is in the works.

    This Windows guide will teach you how to jailbreak various devices using TaiG for iOS 8.1.1 or iOS 8.1.2. The current version of TaiG is version 1.2.0. Note that this is an UNTETHERED JAILBREAK, which means you can reboot your iOS device just like you normally would.

    This guide should be used with the following devices on iOS 8.1.1 or 8.1.2 (if you're not sure, here's how to find your iOS firmware version and how to find your iOS device type):

    • iPod touch 5g
    • iPhone 4s
    • iPhone 5
    • iPhone 5s
    • iPhone 5c
    • iPhone 6
    • iPhone 6 Plus
    • iPad Mini
    • iPad Mini with retina display
    • iPad Mini 3
    • iPad 2
    • iPad 3
    • iPad 4
    • iPad Air
    • iPad Air 2


    1. Download TaiG for Windows

    The first thing you have to do is download the jailbreak tool. TaiG is only for Windows at this point in time, but Mac OS X users can run Bootcamp or a virtual machine to make this happen. In fact, this guide was written using a virtual machine on Mac OS X through VMWare Fusion and it worked perfectly.

    To download the tool, you can follow this link.

    2. Prepare Your iOS 8.1.1 Device

    The first thing you should always do before jailbreaking is you should back up your device. That way, if anything goes wrong, you can always restore to your most recent working condition. You can use iCloud, or you can use iTunes (recommended).

    TaiG needs your iOS device to have Touch ID and any passcode you have set to be turned OFF; Find my iPhone also needs to be turned OFF. You can turn them back on after the jailbreak. To do this, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode > turn off the top three green sliders, and Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone > Turn off the top green slider. You will also want to enable Airplane Mode before you jailbreak. If you don't follow these steps, you're going to experience problems trying to jailbreak, so play it safe, and go ahead and follow these steps before you attempt this jailbreak.

    3. Begin the Jailbreak Process

    Now that your device is ready, you can un-zip the file you downloaded by right-clicking on the zip file and selecting "Extract All." Next, you can right click on the TaiG jailbreak application icon and select "Run as Administrator" to open the application:



    You will be prompted if you're sure you want to run the program. Go ahead and run it:



    Now is a good time to plug in your iOS 8.1.1 device if you haven't already.

    TaiG should automatically detect what device you have plugged in, and you will see two check marks:



    The first check mark installed Cydia. The second check mark installs something else that you DON'T WANT, so un-check the second option and just leave Cydia checked. After you do that, go ahead and click on the green button at the bottom of the application and the jailbreak will begin:



    And it continues:



    Eventually, your device will notify you that your storage is getting full. Ignore this pop-up and just tap "done" to dismiss it, as Cydia will fix this:



    After a few moments, your jailbreak should complete and you'll see a happy face in the TaiG application:



    Here's Cydia on the Home Screen:



    You will want to go ahead and disable Airplane Mode. It's a good time to re-enable your passcode/Touch ID now, and re-enable Find my iPhone.

    Now, with Airplane Mode disabled, you can launch Cydia and it will begin reloading the filesystem. This may take a while. Your device will respring after it completes and then you can open Cydia again:



    And now we're running Cydia on our iOS 8.1.1 device:



    Keep in mind that not all jailbreak tweaks are iOS 8.1.1-compatible at this point in time, although it shouldn't take long for them to be updated. Many tweaks are already working on iOS 8.1.1 compliments of the recently-added iOS 8 support. Cydia runs great on iOS 8.1.1 as it is already iOS 8-compatible.

    Enjoy your new iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak!

    If this jailbreak works, why wouldn't you update and jailbreak. Every update includes security and bug fixes for every device. 8.1.1 fixed a memory leak that caused safari to crash. It's worth updating because of that.

    Because I don't know anything about this JB team and they apparently have a "sketchy history"

    Just to put this JB out was just stupid and a waste until 8.2 so apple could fix the bad memory leak.

    I'm also wondering how many tweaks will not work with 8.1.1. If there's no major difference between the 2 firmwares I'd think they'd work, right? I'd appreciate if people would post if they are having trouble with any tweaks after going to 8.1.1.

    8.1.1 itself already fixed a bad memory issue in 8.1. And early reports are promising but no conclusive. Gotta wait and see.

    Doesn't jail breaking give people the option to do what apple does to the iOS? Couldn't a tweak be made to fix the memory leak in Cydia?

    Ok. I'm still going to wait. 8.1 is fine with me for now.
