Can't find Apple driver, please download and install iTunes FIXED

A few days ago, we posted our Mac jailbreak tutorial for iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2. That tutorial used the PP Jailbreak tool for the Mac. For Windows users, things are slightly different. Windows users get to use the TaiG tool. At the end of the day, both tools are geared towards the same goal—allowing you to easily jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2.

Step 1: Install iTunes if you haven’t already

Step 2: Download TaiG 1.3.0  and extract to the desktop

Step 3: Restore your device to iOS 8.2 beta 2 (officially for developers only)

Step 4: Disable Find My iPhone, Touch ID, Passcode, and place your device into Airplane mode

Step 5: Connect your device to your PC

Step 6: Launch TaiG 1.3.0, uncheck the box that says “3K Assistant” and click the Start button

The jailbreak will process, and it’ll only take a minute or two to complete on a freshly installed version of iOS 8.2 beta. After your device reboots, disable Airplane mode, and launch Cydia to get started.

If you have problem with the Apple driver after launching TaiG, we’ve got a troubleshooting tip that may help you out.

What’s your current jailbreak status right now? Are you still on iOS 8.1.2, or have you taken the plunge with this beta jailbreak? If you’re already on a jailbroken firmware, then I definitely advise that you stay there until a jailbreak is available for public firmware. Otherwise, this is a good recourse if you’re a developer who’s in need of a jailbreak.

What do you think?

    Thanks Jeff, i just locked myself out of my iphone on 8.1.2 jailbreak…so good thing this came out!

  • Varun Soi

    When ios 8.2 official version coming out?

    • Chris

      Likely within the next 2-4 weeks

      • Varun Soi

        Should i wait for official release and jailbreak for ios8.2 because i am currently on ios 8.1.3 and it sucks without jailbreak!

      • Chris

        Go for it, all the tweaks that work for 8.1.2 and below should still work on 8.2.

      • Quadzilla

        Many of the staple tweaks like Springtomize do not work on 8.2 so do not expect many things to work that did on 8.1.2

      • Varun Soi

        How to update to ios 8.2 beta 2 from ios 8.1.3..can you tell me?

      • David Mehawes

        When is there gonna be a tweak for iOS 8.1.3 cause I can’t upgrade or downgrade. And it sucks

      • David Mehawes

        When is iOS 8.2 coming out ? Is there a jailbreak for ios 8.2?

  • Croak

    Hey Jeff, great as always. One thing, and I’m not sure if its my phone or not or if anyone else can confirm this from 0.57-0.03 after you complete the jailbreak, the video goes black.

    • e1ghtSpace

      It’s obviously supposed to be black. What else do you need to see?
      It probably reduced the upload size but I doubt that’s why.

  • NP92

    Jeff any bug fixes here or?

  • Provide us beta iOS direct link.

    So I’m on 8.1.2 jb. Contemplating upgrading to 8.2b2 and jb’ing?
    I mean, are there any major bugs on 8.2b2? Is it worth doing this as a temporary solution until 8.2 full is released and jailbroken?
    The article says stay where I am, but why’s that? (Besides “beta unreleased software”)

  • Ayman Abdellaoui

    Why the 8.2 beta is jailbroken yet there’s no jailbreak for 8.1.3 ?!

    • Quadzilla

      Because it uses the same exploits of 8.1.2.

      8.1.3 and 8.2 beta 3/4/5 do not work with this jailbreak since apple closed all the holes.

  • iPhoneWINS

    lol why would you want to run a beta as your main OS?

  • 9to5Slavery

    Different between 8.2 vs 8.1.2?

  • Jake Barbour

    All things that work on iOS 8.1.2 don’t all work on 8.2. Honestly iOS 8 itself is a beta, it has so many problems that this isn’t much different.

  • Jake Barbour

    Jeff, the end of the video is all black.

  • beej1990

    I used the new jailbreak working using the latest jailbreak from
    evasi0n-remote .com works a treat here.

  • 06dabest .

    thankyou very much! after searching so long, I finally find this blog! thankyou for your help! IOS 8.2 successfully jailbroken using taig 🙂 Thanks a lot! 🙂

    • Ali H. Hwaitat

      do you think it’s safe .. and do the tweaks work perfectly there?

  • jeremiah2009

    wow evasi0n-remote .com really worked for me too! now i have cydia!

  • VeeLanger

    My iPhone 6plus came with 8.1.3 so I was locked outta JB, the beta 2 method worked just fine and I haven’t noticed any stability issues.

    Of note though, cydia isn’t updated to handle 8.2, so while previously purchased and free tweaks install just fine, the failsafe that prevents you from buying tweaks that won’t work on your device (re: all of them according to cydia) means you can’t buy any new tweaks.

    Still it’s a minor inconvenience, there’s still plenty of free tweaks out there that make JB worth it, and my guess is it’ll be resolved as soon as cydia is updated to include 8.2. Also if you have iPad or iPod or something that still have JB you could always just buy your tweaks on there and then refresh purchases.

    Is anybody else having a problem with Bytafont 2 on iOS 8.2?

  • 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 can I 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 I need to update to ios 8.1.3 before updating to ios 8.2 beta 2 to avoid this error, right?

    • rohitb

      it’s not working

      • Dino Scavo

        i tried and the program doesn’t recognize iTunes installed on the computer

  • Jason Vanity

    When I open TaiG it says “Please Restore before Jailbreak. Please use TaiG firmware upgrade and recover to iOS 8.2 Beta1 , 2 before Jailbreak. Any idea what the problem is, and a possible solution?

  • janz

  • Steven Sparks

    Iphone 6+ running iOS 8.2 Beta 2 Jailbroken with taig 1300. And “Rebrushed” – with the tai chi pro taig assistant tool. Also had iphone 5 on 8.2 beta with same process but after leaving it uncharged and off for a week when turning on last night iPhone 5 wouldn’t get out of recovery. Attempted previous process with no success. There are so many problems with 8.2 beta 2 even tho I’m Jailbroken with the 6+ still. Bluetooth does not pair for starters. The only apps that work are safari,settings,messages,phone, and cydia. Yup that’s it! all other apps crash immediately upon opening. Cydia tweaks that work are few and far between. And most the tweaks I use aren’t supported. I’m tempted to just update so I can at least use Waze for navigation. So to say there aren’t many problems is misinformed or uninformed whichever. Apple devices are in a tragic state currently. My springboard is even broken and now there is a black bar that’s about 1/4in in size now on everywhere in my device. Steve0

  • Rebecca

    I have an iPhone 6, version 8.2..

    No matter what I do I cannot install he ISPW file for 8.2 or 8.2 beta. I continue to get the iTunes 3914 error message and have literally done everything to try and make it work. I downloaded the Chinese recovery tool from the Taig website, and for the obvious reasons, I can’t figure out how to download their firmare (the whole site is in another language and cannot be translated)
