How to jailbreak iOS 8.4 with TaiG 2.2.0

Jailbreak iOS 8.4 taiG2.2.0

TaiG 2.2.0 was just released about an hour ago, and it brings with it support for iOS 8.4. Like previous versions of TaiG’s tool, this version is Windows-only, so you’ll need to use a Windows machine or a virtual Machine.

We’ve created a full video walkthrough and tutorial to show you how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8.1.3-iOS 8.4 using TaiG 2.2.0. It’s an extremely easy jailbreak that only takes a few minutes if the directions are followed closely.

Note: this tool requires Windows or a virtual machine running windows. You must have iTunes installed (latest version is fine) for this to work.

Be sure to have Find My iPhone, passcode lock, and location services disabled prior to starting. Enter Airplane mode as well. It’s also best if you use a fresh iOS install, and you reboot before starting. Also, ensure that iTunes can recognize your device before running the TaiG too!

Step 1: Download TaiG 2.2.0 from our downloads page; save and extract it to your desktop

Step 2: Connect your iOS 8.4 device to your computer

Step 3: Launch TaiG 2.2.0

Step 4: Uncheck the 3K assistant checkbox

Step 5: Click Start to begin the jailbreak

Once the jailbreak completes, launch Cydia to start the Cydia initialization process. The great thing about TaiG 2.2.0 and iOS 8.4 is that the current version of Cydia Substrate works out of the box, so there are no weird workarounds or waits to endure until you can use your favorite tweaks. That said, some tweaks will need to be updated and enabled before you can enjoy them.

What do you think? Are you jailbroken on iOS 8.4 yet?

    I just JailBroke my iPhone-5S on iOS-8.4 with no issues… The catch is I had to use an older laptop that was 32-bit. I have 3 laptops, 2 that are 64-bit and 1 that is 32-bit. The JailBreak failed multiple times on the 64-bit ones but I installed an older iTunes 12.0.1 and ran the JailBreak on my 32-bit older laptop and it worked to 100% within 2 or 3 minutes….

  • Parth Rawat

    I used the TaiG 2.3.1 Beta to install cydia 1.1.20 and every time I try to install something I get “/usr/libexec/cydia/cydo error (2)”
    How can I fix this? I cannot install iFile to fix it or use iFunbox.

    On the other hand, his Jeb Bush interview felt truncated and acquire and soft, that has been possibly just him seeking never to alienate the prospects correct out the gate. He needs to construct an market, turn into a power, and he then can do whatever he wants and have people come anyway.
