If you’ve been facing this ringtone issue, then you probably want to update to iOS 8.1.2. Don’t worry, it doesn’t patch the TaiG jailbreak. It has been confirmed that the iOS 8.1.2 firmware can be jailbroken using the TaiG tool, once it’s updated of course. iH8sn0w posted on Twitter that iOS 8.1.2 doesn’t patch the TaiG jailbreak.

A new version of WinterBoard is now available in Cydia, which now supports iOS 8 and gets some new features. WinterBoard is the best tweak to completely change the look of your iOS device using themes and other elements.

Download Semi-Restore With iOS 8.1 Support

Have you ever been in a situation where your jailbroken device is acting up, but you don’t want to restore because you’ll have to start fresh? Well, that’s where the Semi-Restore tool comes in. You can use this useful piece of tool to restore your iOS device without losing the jailbreak. Now, this tool also supports the latest iOS 8.1.

Semi-Restore-for-iOS-5.0-8.1

In short, Semi-Restore will uninstall all the tweaks installed by Cydia and cleanup your device. So yes, it isn’t a complete restore, but it is useful. For example, if you’re on iOS 8.1 and Apple stops signing iOS 8.1, then you have no choice but to update to iOS 8.1.1 or 8.2 and lose the jailbreak. By using Semi-Restore, you can simply restore to iOS 8.1 and retain your jailbreak.

As of now, Semi-Restore for iOS 8.1 is useless, as Apple is still signing it. Once it stops signing it and your jailbroken device runs in to some kind of trouble, then you can use this tool to restore to iOS 8.1 without losing the jailbreak. The tool is only available for Windows and Linux users, but a Mac version is in the making. You’re also going to install OpenSSH from Cydia on your device to use this tool.

Download Semi-Restore from the downloads page.

iOS 8.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Shown Video By iH8Sn0w

A new video has surfaced showing an iPad 3 untethered jailbroken on iOS 8.1.1. iOS hacker iH8sn0w uploaded the video to his YouTube channel showing us that an iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak is still possible.

iOS-8.1.1-untethered-jailbreak

Apple released iOS 8.1.1 last week, but it had patched the iOS 8 jailbreak by Pangu. Although this video is proof that an iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak is still possible, don’t expect iH8sn0w to release it to the public. He has always teased new jailbreaks but never released it. Also, this jailbreak works only with older iOS devices with 30 pin connector and uses a new exploit, not bootrom or HFS. Check out the jailbreak in action below:

If you have updated to iOS 8.1.1 and still want to jailbreak, you can’t. However, you can still downgrade to iOS 8.1 and use the Pangu tool to jailbreak. Apple also seeded the first beta of iOS 8.2 to developers yesterday.

downgrade iOS 8.1.1 to iOS 8.1

iOS 8.1.1 was released by Apple a few days ago and it kills the Pangu iOS 8 – 8.1 jailbreak. If you did update to iOS 8.1.1, but miss the jailbreak and all the awesome tweaks, then we have some good news for you. Apple is still signing iOS 8.1, which means you can downgrade from iOS 8.1.1 if you want the jailbreak back. Remember, Apple may stop signing iOS 8.1 anytime, so you better downgrade soon.

Downgrade iOS Firmware

The downgrade process is simple, if you follow our step-by-step tutorial. You’ll need to do a few things before you can downgrade. Firstly, download the iOS 8.1 IPSW for your iOS device from our downloads section. Next, perform a backup of your iOS device, just in case. Also, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed.

How To Downgrade iOS 8.1.1 To iOS 8.1:

  • Connect your iOS 8.1.1 device to iTunes.
  • Select your device on iTunes and click on Restore iPhone/iPod/iPad while holding Shift on your Windows computer or Alt/Option key on Mac.
  • Browse to the location where you downloaded the iOS 8.1 IPSW and select it.
  • Choose Verify when a prompt appears and wait for the process to complete.

You should be on iOS 8.1 now and you can go ahead and jailbreak using the Pangu8 tool. Follow our tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 8 – 8.1 on Mac, Windows.
