TaiG iOS 8.2 beta

As the rumors recently suggested, TaiG has released a new jailbreak tool for Windows users to jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2. Now, Windows users can enjoy a jailbroken version of iOS 8.2 just like Mac users can.

The tool, which comes in at version 1.3.0, is available for download from TaiG’s website right now. We will be back shortly with a full tutorial for Windows users.

If you’re on a Mac, then check out our iOS 8.2 beta jailbreak Mac tutorial and video that we posted yesterday.

It might seem weird that TaiG would release a jailbreak for a beta release, but consider this:

  • Apple is still signing iOS 8.2
  • iOS 8.2 is the only modern firmware that Apple is signing that is jailbreakable
  • iOS 8.2 doesn’t expire

Only users who are currently not on jailbreakable firmware, like iOS 8.1.3, should consider doing this. If you’re already jailbroken, then you should stick to your current jailbreak until a new jailbreak for publicly release firmware arrives.

What do you think about TaiG releasing an update for the beta? Will you consider using it?

  • Feels like they have exploits for every single iOS release.. :/ *not*

      Tweet by ih8sn0w : “For those who do not already know, 8.2 betas 1/2 were built before TaiG was public. So they are still vulnerable. No new bugs were used.”

      • Paymon John Vafa

        Ah. They makes sense

  • Jake Dai

    Ya can also use old PP tool for Windows to jailbreak.

  • VWH

    Will this work on 8.1.2? I happened to get a 128 gig unit Friday and would love to jailbreak.

    • Fajr Lodhi

      8.1.2 still works with the normal taig utility!

      • VWH

        WHich version would that be? 1.2, 1.21?

      • Fajr Lodhi

        1.2.1

    • Me

      Yes. Jailbreak away my man!

  • Guest

    Jeez at least til public version of the OS is out.

    • Quadzilla

      It would not matter if they had waited because this uses old exploits and why it only works on beta 1 and 2 not 3/4/5 where Apple had closed all the holes to jailbreak.

  • How stable is 8.2?

    • Tim Jinna

      I think it’s stable(i use it 2 days naver found bug) ^^

      • Thanks, Ill consider updating it after a few days.

    • Waleed

      Guess what? I found huge battery improvement in iOS 8.2 beta 2 🙂
      Loved it.

  • M2

    how does it not expire? Can apple change this in the future to make it expire?

  • Poporopo00

    “Never expires”

    What that means?

    • Jonathan

      Beta iOS versions tend to expire, forcing developers to update to the later version. If we non-developers were to use it, we wouldn’t want the expiration because if we jumped to that build, jailbroke it, used it as normal, it would one day become unusable unless we update to the most likely-nonjailbroken version of the beta.

  • Allan Erik

    how i get without a dev account?

    • Andres Torres

      In iTunes restore to iOS 8.1.3 and do the on screen activation, then in iTunes click “Update” and select the iOS 8.2 beta. Updating should skip the activation process.

      • Allan Erik

        don’t work here.

  • Quadzilla

    Does not look like there is a place to download the iPad Air 2 Wifi version of beta 2 anywhere. Scoured the web and found nothing. Found beta 1 that was it.

  • Steve

    I have iOS 8.2 b2 on my iPhone 5s. I downloaded TaiG (1.3), but TaiG says my iTunes version is too old, i should update. I checked it twice (with Apple Updater), but its the lastest version of iTunes. So, i have no idea.
    I just check it w
    ith Pangu, and it says that too (my iTunes version is too old).
    Is there anybody who could help me? Sorry for my English, I’m Hungarian.

    • WonkieInc

      Try and re download from the website I guess

      • Steve

        I’ve tried, but not work. 🙁

      • WonkieInc

        What version do you have?

      • Steve

        iTunes 12.1.1.4

      • Steve

        iTools says: “failed to load itunes library”.
        So, the problem is with iTunes. But i have no idea, how to fix that. Could you help me?

      • Quadzilla

        12.0.1.26 works

      • Steve

        Really.
        Thanks!

      • WonkieInc

        That’s the latest lol

    • 24mh12

      You need to download iTunes 12.1.1

    • Waleed

      I gusss you have to simply uninstall iTunes completly (google it)
      And then download and install as fresh 🙂
      Hope it’d help..

  • danger2u

    can be used for ios 8.1.3???

    • Anku Singla

      no

  • ITportal

    I’m stuck at activation after installing iOS 8.2 Beta. Any help? How do I bypass this?

    • Quadzilla

      I don’t believe you can do a “Restore” without being a developer so you will have to do an upgrade from 8.1.3

      • Poporopo00

        @Quadzilla

        This sound a little complicated for me and my small brain.
        Can you tell me, if you know, what “Never expires” means?

      • Anku Singla

        plz link ios 8.2

      • WonkieInc

        That it never expires

      • Quadzilla

        Generally in the past a beta has an expiration date built into it and on that day it just will not let you use your device any longer. In this particular beta there is no expiration date according to a well know developer of jailbreak tweaks making it somewhat of a rare thing and great so people can use this beta for as long as they need to till another official iOS version comes out to the public that is jailbreakable.

      • Poporopo00

        Does this mean, if my phone fails and the next version is out, i can restore with no problems?

      • Quadzilla

        As long as Apple is still signing the 8.2 beta then you can restore but once they stop signing it you cannot.
        Unlike Android where you can pretty much always roll back to any firmware you feel like at anytime Apple has full control on what the last firmware you can go back to.
        I think Apple offers more leeway on Betas because they are meant for developers really not the public and the public generally do not want to stay on a beta firmware even though they are as stable or even more stable then official releases. So right now they are still signing all forms of 8.2 beta but that will stop eventually for sure and you will not be able to go back if you mess up your device.

      • Poporopo00

        Excelent!!!

        Well explained.

        Thank you much.

        Expiration Date = Never.

      • ITportal

        I managed to install 8.2 beta. I had to restore to 8.1.3 and setup as new iphone. Now, after I start taig jb tool, some sort of red cross appears and everything is in chineese, so I gues that means it cannot find my device?! Don’t know what to do next.

      • Quadzilla

        Did you turn off Find my iphone ?. Did you put your device in Airplane Mode ?. If you did not do both of those things it generally will not work. Disable icloud altogether also till its done Jailbreaking.

      • ITportal

        Looks like I accidentally installed Beta 5 so it cannot work. I can’t find valid ipsw for Beta 1 or 2 so I am stuck now. :/

      • Quadzilla

        They are out there but you gotta do some digging. Took me quite sometime to find the right one for iPad Air 2

      • Flake

        what do i do if i cant bypass it because i am not a developer and i have an ipad air 2 with software 8.1.3

      • Quadzilla

        You can bypass it by just doing an upgrade from 8.1.3. If you do a restore you will need to have developer access.

    • Andrew

      Join the iOS Developer program?

      • Quadzilla

        You can do it for as cheap as $5 if you do not want to go the upgrade path vs a fresh restore which I would always recommend doing.

      • Andrew

        That’s illegal and pointless. Basic users shouldn’t have access to betas in the fist place 😀

  • Anku Singla

    ios 8.2 link without dev plz send

    dabwali786@gmail.com

    • Waleed

      Sent you download link for iOS 8.2 beta 1, which is jailbreakable same as beta 2 🙂 with this taig tool

    • Flake

      me too please my email is helmunderback@gmail.com

  • Capt Crunchy

    From 8.1.3 i updated to 8.2 beta but i couldn’t get past the apple activation screen because i am not a developer. I also get that error on itunes. How do i get past this? Am i doin something wrong?

    • Andres Torres

      Restore to iOS 8.1.3 and do the on screen activation, then in iTunes click “Update” and select the iOS 8.2 beta. Updating should skip the activation process.

  • Kody Terrell Whitehead

    Can we get a link for Ios 8.2 beta 1 or 2 because Some of us are stuck at beta 5

  • Quadzilla

    It does not seem you can edit the plist to install other tweaks. When you edit the list Cydia does not seem to detect the changes and you end up with white icons on your home screen.
    I have not edited a Plist since iO7 beta so maybe something changed since then to do it properly.

  • Lumina

    The folder is empty.. Can’t access it!

  • Lumina

    It says the zip folder is empty, can’t even access it…

  • Jonathan, Apple user o3o

    Can I get the IPSW link for Beta 1 I.O.S. 8.2? I tried looking but I feel as if there are some that are fake..so can someone be kind to link it? That would be appreciated.

  • Felix

    What tweaks currently working on iOS 8.2 beta 2 ??
    I only know ifile, Auxo 3 and Atom are working…

  • Mvj Marcus

    Can someone help me ? I followed the setup installation process to restore 8.2 Beta 2 but in the end I’m facing the Apple Developer Activation Error which means I didn’t manage to bypass it. Someone plssss help me…. Thank you.

    • Quadzilla

      You can bypass the activation by doing an upgrade so install 8.1.3 and then install 8.2 beta 2 but do not click restore click upgrade .
      Second option is to spend $5 and have your UDID registered in the developer program so you can install any beta you want and use the restore process instead of the upgrade process.
      Its really that simple and you have the choice.

  • Shingo

    no 8.1.3 JB?

    • Quadzilla

      Nope and there will not be one they will save those exploits for whatever Apples next big iOS release is.
      Since there is speculation of the 12 inch iPad coming in April my money is that is when a new iOS version will hit probably 8.3 along with the Apple watch.

  • Doni

    Thanks bro! Love this 😀
    But springtomize 3 still dont work, we have to wait for an update

  • Lucas Fioranelli

    After the update and jailbreak can i use my phone normally ? Or it would be impossible to activate ??

  • Felix

    Just search google for IOS 8.2 beta 2

  • Jacob Kravatz

    I have been having problems with ios 8.1.2 jailbreak. I want to restore but doing this will result in updating to ios 8.1.3. I was wondering if I can skip ios 8.1.3 and go to ios 8.2 beta 2? Because when I try to update my iPad air to ios 8.2 from ios 8.1.2, it says this device isn’t the right build even though it is for the software I downloaded. I was thinking that I cant skip ios 8.1.3… I have to update there first, right?
