TaiG iOS 8.3 jailbreak

Good news for those of you still experiencing issues with the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.3: a new update for the tool has been released to fix several problems that are still plaguing users.

TaiG 2.1.3 has been released to address some major concerns with the tool, and although it remains a Windows-only app, the update brings changes to the way it responds when used with a virtual machine on Mac and Linux systems. Check out the full change log for all of the details.

Here is the full change log for TaiG 2.1.3:

  • Fix the issue of getting stuck at 20% while jailbreaking.
  • Update the latest Cydia 1.1.18 and UIKitTools 1.1.1.0; fix the issue of icon missing after jailbreak.
  • Fix long startup time of iPhone 4s after jailbreak.
  • Fix the issue that TaiG Jailbreak Tool doesn’t work on the virtual machine.

I know for a fact that, despite our best efforts to help users solve these issues, some were unable to overcome them. For those of you hit fit into this group, you should download TaiG 2.1.3 from our downloads (mirror thx r/jailbreak) page right now and attempt the jailbreak.

I recommend that only those who remain unjailbroken use this tool. The issue with the disappearing icons has already been addressed yesterday by a Cydia package, and I imagine that this update will appear on the default Cydia repos to update the Untether package to 2.1.3 to address all other concerns. In fact, if you really want the update and don’t want to wait for it to appear on Cydia proper, you can simply add http://apt.taig.com to your Cydia sources, and you’ll find the 2.1.3 update there.

Have you tried version 2.1.3 yet?

    Still waiting for iOS 8.4 😛

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      I’ve got the feeling that 8.4 is going to be a small update.

      • Aneeq Naqvi

        I know but as a music enthusiast I can’t wait to try the new music app, jailbreak is not that much important for me. 🙂 I wish they would have waited for iOS 8.4. :/

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        You know how people are, the don’t want to wait.. they want a jailbreak now.

      • Aneeq Naqvi

        Well.. yeah. You’re right. 😛

      • Manuel Molina

        iOS 8.3 has been out for sometime — April it released. Before 8.3, there was a small window from 8.0 to 8.3, with updates every month or so.

    • Okada San

      I was under the impression that this jailbreak will still work on 8.4. Since 8.4 is set to be released soon, the thinking is that there isn’t enough time to patch the exploits.

    • Manuel Molina

      Then this article is not for you 🙂

  • Eni

    Out of topic: this ad looks beautiful lol

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      I want the link! I want to have her!!! How much!?

      • Eni

        Sorry bro It’s gone, next time I’ll catch it for you;)

    • Elias Chao

      Funny thing is that ads tend to be user specific ;p

      • Eni

        But i already have a gf 🙁 lol

      • regkilla

        We iOS addicts here at iDownloadblog have no such thing known as a girlfriend.

      • Eni

        She is an iOS addicted too so I guess that’s acceptable lol

      • Elias Chao

        Woah, speak for yourself I do have a girlfriend :p

  • Lucas Rey

    As always TaiG link doesn’t work. Any mirror?

  • Lucus Bendzsa

    Jeff I love you!!!!! I will try a little later and I hope this works soooo bad!!!!

  • Levent Korkmaz

    I did the jailbreak on iphone5. nothing bad happend. also most of my fav tweaks works fine. (waiting for auxo 3 and springtomize 3 updates now) cheers

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      Auxo halfway works.

  • Preben Faarkrog Hansen

    with new itunes version, or the old ?

  • Matt Maher

    I’ve tried both TaiG 2.1.2 and 2.1.3, both are getting stuck at 60% for me. 🙁

    • Matt Maher

      Just got the failed Error message (-1105)

    • I also had this issue. Did a factory Restore from iTunes rebooted then successfully applied the Jailbreak. 🙂

      • Matt Maher

        That’s what I was afraid I was going to have to do. TaiG’s site and iOSGods says it could be anti-virus related, so I’m disabling that and doing a back up on my 6 Plus.

        I’ll report back on the anti-virus situation later if I find any results worth their merit.

      • Matt Maher

        Just FYI: I’m on a 2008 MBP running Windows 7 in BootCamp with an iPhone 6 Plus (AT&T).

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Just jailbreak with TaiG 2.0 on win 32 bit, and on iTunes 12.0 32 bit. After jailbreak, update jailbreak via Cydia

    • Tom

      At least you can get to 60%. I haven’t made it past 20 in 2 days and hours and hours of wasted time. 🙁

      • Capirexz

        Same here! 2 days….

  • Maury Hill

    El Capitan Beta 2, VMWare Fusion 7, and Windows 10 TP VM. Taig starts up fine. But Windows Devices and Printers shows an error for my phone. iTunes and TaiG cannot see it. Similar problems with Parallels. (I know, I’m running betas within a beta…).

    • Knyw413

      all you need is a beta VMWare

  • Rondog

    Auxo legacy is working for me, the only thing missing is the play pause arrow, but it works even if not there, so for it being this early into the jailbreak I guess its not really all that bad. Waiting on Springtomize and Forecast updates and that should just about do it for me, everything else is working fine. Hopefully everyone will get there’s running pretty soon, patience is all I can say.

  • I added the 3k source a couple of days ago to fix the substrate issue as posted on here, am I OK to remove that source now or will further updates come from that source?

    • William Melendez

      Patience grasshopper, the update popped up on that source too.

  • Pablo Untroib

    fresh jb to 2.1.2 today upgraded to 2.1.3, icons still don’t show, also reinstalled uikit and substrate, no icons

    • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

      Restore fresh 8.3. Jailbreak with TaiG 2.0, then update via Cydia

      • Pablo Untroib

        did a 8.3 full restore before taig 2.1.2, set up iphone as new, restored its contents, then jb, then upgrade to 2.1.3, how is your procedure different? had to downgrade to itunes 12.01 to finish jb btw

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        Well, Not sure because I didn’t code the program, but thats the procedure that I did and I don’t have that issue. Maybe it may help you.

    • Tylor Jackson

      It’s still don’t show icons? My iPad mini 3 was jailbroken 2 days ago and just updated taig v2.1.3 worked fine for me no problem..

      • Pablo Untroib

        Sadly I don’t have the same luck…

  • Martin

    I had problems only with iTunes drivers.. Downgraded and everything worked. Happy to see they are releasing very fast updates though.. Hope 8.4 to come as fast as those updates. I really want to try the new music app, so I will have to sacrifice my jailbreak.. 🙂

  • Does multifly work on 8.3?

    • Blip dude

      Same, although I’ve been testing out all my tweaks and putting up with crashes all weekend, for whatever reason, this is one tweak I rather someone else check.

  • White Michael Jackson

    How about a mac version?

  • Preben Faarkrog Hansen

    One last time TaiG

  • smbluthing

    links to 2.1.3 show only the 2.1.2 and mirror link does not work. thanks

  • Poporopo00

    The only thing i’m jailbreaking now is an iPad mini (A5 chip), all my devices still running 7.1.2 beautifully.
    Now i have to do this plus that plus this plus that…i don’t think i want to upgrade.

    I give thanks to the Jailbreaking Team, but i think they could wait 8.4. Great job but too many steps for a not an expert people like me.

    I’ll keep waiting untill the driver error get fixed, i tried everything i guess i can do but nothing worked.

    …oh well…

  • blastingbigairs

    Has anyone been able to hide their JB from the Good For Enterprise app on IOS 8.XX? I used to use XCon but it’s no longer working?

  • MrRiNo

    uhhh my instalation keep stucking on (-1105) error, this shouldnt happend. Someone know how to fix it? im done

  • iltas

    why i drain my battery fast when im usiNG LTE

  • mrgerbik

    I have a feeling that all the issues could be issues with faulty iphone hardware. Maybe bad memory, etc
    Either that or all of these people dont know how to use Windows properly…

  • BEDU

    Any word on 8.4 GM being compatible with TaiG 2.1.3?

  • TxProud

    still stuck on 60%

  • Jake1047s

    What about the phone freezing constantly, and needing to be restarted to fix. I’m using an unlocked iPhone 6 on 8.3. It’s not a hardware issue.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Nope still didn’t work. At this point I’m just gonna wait for the 8.4 jailbreak

  • TheBoi23

    What is the prob? I get the error of Network Anomalies! Version Verification Failed. What to do?????
