TaiG (Taiji) iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak released

After delivering updates to the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool for Windows and garnering some positive attention from MuscleNerd, the TaiG team has made a public announcement. In the announcement, the team talks about the future of the tool, jailbreak support for iOS 8.2, a Mac version of the tool and wanting to work with the Pangu team.

TaiG (Taiji) iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak released

According to the TaiG team, iOS 8.2 is jailbreakable, but the feature is currently disabled in the tool. That is why users have been encountering errors when trying to jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta. As soon as Apple releases iOS 8.2 to the public, the team will unlock the feature and push an update to the tool, making it possible to jailbreak the firmware.

The team believes that iOS 8.1.1 will be around for a while and that is why they decided to release a jailbreak. Many considered this move as pointless because at the time of TaiG’s release, iOS 8.1 was still being signed by Apple. Users saw this as a waste of another exploit that could have been used in the future.

Also, the team hopes to work with the Pangu team in order to bring a jailbreak as fast as possible after Apple releases a firmware. Read their full announcement/FAQ below:

TaiGJBreak Announcement

So far, TaiGJBreak (supporting iOS8.0-8.1.1) has gained popularity and consent among worldwide jailbreakers for its simplicity, security and transparency. A lot of media, senior JB developers and fellow developers have expressed their congratulations, TaiG hereby thank all of them.

Due to complexity of JB, we notice there are some doubts in media reports, e.g. does TaiG support iOS 8.2 beta? what’s TaiG’s consideration to release it for 8.1.1? We would like to make some clarificaitons for these questions:

  1. In fact, support of iOS 8.2 has been completed by TaiG, as 8.2 is still at beta stage, we have disabled support for 8.2 in current public release.
  2. Releasing a stable iOS version around Thanksgiving, and maintain it until the first quarter of next year, has been usual practice of Apple, which means 8.1.1 will be around for quite some time, and it is a relatively stable firmware. These are the main reasons that TaiG chose to release JB for 8.1.1. In addition, signing of 8.1 is closed earlier today, thus it could be a good time to update to 8.1.1 and jailbreak.
  3. 2 above is also in responding to the concern that TaiG may expose exploits too early. Postponing release will not bring more benifits for users, that will just increase infulence on attention from the hunger desire of users.
  4. In our team we have the 3rd (probably the 1st) developer in the world who has accomplished JB individually. We will try to give you surprises in every subsequent iOS public release, and we are very confident about that.
  5. Of course jailbreaking is a hard and complex work, relaying on 1 person or a single team will not make it last long. Luckily we have some fellows domestically, if we can cooperate, it will bring more benifits for all users. Thus we sincerely invite PanGu Team for a face-to-face communication, to find a way of cooperation for providing faster and better jailbreak sevice together.
  6. Thanks again for everyone’s attention on TaiG. Thanks to thousands of enthuiast users for providing bug feedback and suggestions, we will be fixing these in our next release soon.

The Pangu team recently released a Mac tool for their iOS 8 – 8.1 untethered jailbreak. So far, users had to use the Windows tool if they wanted to jailbreak their iOS device. Now, if you’re a Mac user, that’s a little difficult. With a dedicated tool for Mac, things get super easy. Learn how to jailbreak your iOS device running on iOS 8 or later using Pangu8 for Mac.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 using Pangu8 for Mac OS X. Before you begin, make sure you back up your device, just in case something goes wrong. You will also need to turn off Passcode Lock and disable Find my iDevice. It is also recommended that you do a fresh restore from iTunes or by downloading the IPSW, if you had updated using OTA (Over the Air). Let’s begin.

  1. Download Pangu8 1.0.0 for Mac from our Downloads section.
  2. Launch the Pangu8 dmg file. It will extract and place the app on your desktop.
  3. Right click on the Pangu8 app and select Open. Now connect your iOS device via USB cable.
  4. Device not detected? Unlock your device and tap on Trust.
  5. Once your device is shown on the Pangu8 tool, the Start Jailbreak button should turn blue. Click on it.
  6. The jailbreak process will begin and a Slide to Upgrade screen will appear on your device after a while. Simply slide to upgrade.
  7. Your device should reboot and upon boot, you will see the Pangu and Cydia icons on the homescreen.
  8. If for some reason the Pangu icon is just a blank and the app crashes on launch, then you need to repeat the entire process.

There you go. You now have a jailbroken iOS device. Apple has patched this jailbreak in iOS 8.1.1 beta, so you better jailbreak now and enjoy your favorite tweaks before the release of iOS 8.1.1.

Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 – 8.1 is now available for Mac users. The jailbreak tool, which was released a few weeks ago, has been only available on Windows. However, as promised, the Pangu team released a Mac version yesterday.


The Mac tool lets you jailbreak your iOS device running on iOS 8 or later. It includes the latest version of Cydia and as Saurik has confirmed, the jailbreak is quite stable now. The Pangu jailbreak and Cydia have been receiving a number of updates to fix issues and straighten out bugs. Now, since almost every issue has been fixed, you can go ahead and jailbreak without worrying about breaking your iDevice.

Pangu8 for Mac version 1.0.0 is now available for download and the jailbreaking procedure is very similar to the Windows tool. Mac users can download Pangu 1.0.0 from our Downloads Page and jailbreak their iOS device with ease.
