TaiG 20 percent 8.3 stuck

Many would-be jailbreakers are stuck at the 20% progress mark with the just-released TaiG 2.0.0 jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3. The jailbreak starts well enough, but after a quick takeoff, putters out at the 20% mark. Thankfully a workaround is now available.

After a few minutes of being stuck on 20%, the iPhone will reboot and will stay stuck at 20%, and the reboot process will continue. Are you experiencing this issue? Sound off in our comments

Jailbreak Failed taig 2.0.0 iOS 8.3

After a few reboots, you’ll received a Jailbreak failed error message. The message states

Please don’t worry. Click the button below for solutions (-1101). After clicking the Solutions button, you’re met with a page that features no solution for the -1101 error.

Pangu solutions

Here are some of the things that I’ve tried:

  • x64 Windows version
  • x86 Windows version
  • Windows 7
  • Windows 10
  • Restoring iPhone to a fresh clean install
  • Waiting it out and letting the 20% error stay there until I got an error timeout

Some people are stating that by downgrading iTunes, you can successfully jailbreak. I’m running the latest version of iTunes, but am going to downgrade to iTunes 12.0.1 (32-bit) and give it a shot.

As we gather more intel and reliable methods for fixing this issue, we’ll update this post. Please share any suggestions that you have in the comments as well.

Update: I fixed this issue by downgrading iTunes. See my post here.

      • Sai

        how do you have win 10 already?

      • hArShit YaDaV

        I’m running the insider preview.

  • Mr.Coolfreak

    I’m assuming there exploits were patched in iOS 8.4, that’s why they released it. Apple music is in iOS 8.4 so a tough choice

    • Truly, I don’t really care about Apple Music. It’s not going to make me switch from Spotify Premium.

  • They rushed the jailbreak as usual. They should have waited one more week for iOS 8.4 which is a major update. But no! They wanted to be first. If they find a way to bring the new music app to iOS 8.8 then that’s fine though I normally use Spotify.

  • People are trying it on a 32bit OS? People still have 32bit OS?!

  • Sumon G

    jailbroken but notification centre seems to freeze the device :/

  • Chris

    Yep, stuck at 20% too. Haven’t tried the iTunes downgrade method yet, but I guess I just want to wait a few more hours to see if it worked for others before trying. Downgrading iTunes isn’t really a hassle but I’ve waited FOR SO LONG FOR A JAILBREAK, I guess I can wait a little more!

    I finally got it to work. I had to downgrade my itunes to 12.0.1 After that I had to uninstall Apple application support, mobile device support from control panel. After that, with the newly installed old itunes, I restored my phone to factory settings. Once I did that, I tried to jailbreak again, and it was done in less than five minutes. After trying everything, I am certain factory resetting the phone was the trick, since that was my last resort.

  • Garrett Moody

    so i got stuck at 20% . downgraded itunes on 32 bit. Now i am stuck on 60% “injecting”?

  • Ahmed Bilal Haider

    How long it takes time to inject the data?

  • David Roginsky

    i downgraded itunes software working fine

  • urrl

    First problem was it did not even get to 20% and said I needed an iTunes driver. So I found the driver on the chinese link it gave and installed it. Next it only got as far as 20% so I downgraded to iTunes 12.0.1 and after multiple retries and letting it sit for about 20 minutes I decided to try again; it made it to 30%. Kept trying and it finally succeeded. My guess is the program is still twitchy. I am using Windows professional 7 64 bit.

  • R chid

  • Abdel Rahman khalil

    • rawatta

      Same here, I´ve waited for about 20 minutes at 60% and then manually restarted my phone by holding Off and home button at the same time, then waited to restart and after about another 5-6 minutes the jailbreak went on and finally got the success 100% nd now its jailbroken!! hope that works for you too. let me know, thanks.

  • Usmc8408

    Yes!! It worked! What a nail biting process that was. I’ve never hated the number 60 so much in my life, haha! So this is exactly what I did, no more, no less…I didn’t restore my phone or put it in airplane mode, I just left everything alone (after turning off passcode and find my iPhone). I have Windows 8.1, 64 bit:

    1- I uninstalled/deleted all this stuff: Apple Application Support, Apple Application Support x64 and x86, Bonjour, Apple Software Update, Apple Mobile Device Support, iTunes.

    2- I downloaded and installed: iTunes64Setup_12.0.1.26 and then iTunesDriver64_0205.

    3- Plugged in my phone and started TaiGJBreak_EN_2000.

    4- I Waited and stared at the screen. It got to 20%, restarted and continued to 60% where it seemed like it stalled for hours (it was really about 10 minutes), it restarted a few more times and IT WORKED!!

    A huge thanks to everyone who offered up these solutions!!

  • Bas Molenaar

    Turn off automatic synchronisation in itunes and close it, then try again. For me it worked that time.
