The iOS 8.1.1 untethered jailbreak that was released last week by TaiG has now been confirmed as safe to use. MuscleNerd, the iOS jailbreak guru, first said that users should probably stay away from this jailbreak. However, he recently tweeted that the TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak is safe to use.

Users who are on iOS 8.1.1 and have been wanting to jailbreak, can now use the new TaiG tool and jailbreak their devices. The TaiG team have never released a jailbreak before and therefore don’t have a track record. MuscleNerd’s tweets gave them some much needed feedback. In a series of tweets, he stated that there isn’t anything too unsettling about the TaiG jailbreak and that it is much more transparent than the Pangu8 jailbreak.

Earlier today, Apple released iOS 8 to the public which brought a handful of new features. Now, MuscleNerd, a well known iOS hacker has tweeted that users who are going to update their iOS devices to today’s iOS 8, will lose their untethered jailbreak and will not be able to go back to iOS 7.x.

He also tweeted that only a certain group of users will be able to downgrade from iOS 8, and that is old-school iPad 2 users with iOS 4.x or iOS 5.x SHSH blobs, using RedSn0w.

So, if you want to keep your jailbreak, DO NOT update. If you don’t mind losing your jailbreak and want to try out iOS 8’s new features, then go ahead and update. Just remember that iOS 7.1.2 is no longer being signed by Apple and you can’t go back once you update to iOS 8. Let us know what you decide to do in the comments.
