Thread: Apple Releases iOS 8.1.2 to the Public to Fix Ringtone Disappearing Issues

    Default Apple Releases iOS 8.1.2 to the Public to Fix Ringtone Disappearing Issues


    Tuesday afternoon, Apple began rolling out iOS 8.1.2 to the public. The update, which comes about 3 weeks after the release of iOS 8.1.1, fixes problems with ringtones disappearing.

    iOS 8.1.2 could close the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1, so if you're jailbroken, you will want to stay far away from this update. As of this writing, none of the major iOS hackers in the jailbreak community, nor TaiG themselves, have officially made a statement about whether or not iOS 8.1.2 can be jailbroken.

    If you're not going to jailbreak and have no intention to, the update can be had OTA (over the air) via Settings > General > Software Update, or you can connect your device to your Mac or PC and update via iTunes (recommended).

    Update: The firmware is now jailbreak safe as of the latest version of TaiG. Feel free to update and jailbreak if you want to.

    And bug fixes. Hopefully this fixes a lot of bugs. We'll have to wait for the full release notes in a couple of days.

    Update on taig compatibility?
    I didn't even know there was a ringtone issue. I guess there's not much reason for me to update! Sticking with 8.1

    Doesn't mean it's patched. The program may need to be updated to be compatible with 8.1.2. Wait for Dev release to know for sure.

    They disabled 8.2 beta. It seems there was no anticipation of an 8.1.2 release

    My iPhone 6 Plus (AT&T) is still on backorder. The order status shows a ship date of Dec 10th-19th. What are the chances it will arrive with < or = 8.11 ? Does anyone know if Apple updates ALL shipping iPhones right up to the day they ship?

    I make my ringtones with iTunes from my own music. It takes just a couple of minutes.

    Personally I am OK with my 8.1Pangu jailbreak. Hopefully there will be a JB for the upcoming 8.2
