Earlier today, TaiG released version 2.4.1 beta of its iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool on Windows. This update was aimed at fixing the frustrating 60% hangup issues that occurred during the jailbreak process.

Well under 24 hours later, and TaiG has upgraded the beta jailbreak tool to a public version. As such, the TaiG team is recommending that all new jailbreakers use version 2.4.1 instead of previous versions.

Here is the full change log for TaiG 2.4.1:

  • Fix the issue of getting stuck at 60% based on users’ feedback.
  • Optimize the process of jailbreak; improve the process’s stability

As we’ve noted in our previous post, this will seemingly be the new trend for TaiG releases—a beta, followed shortly thereafter by public release.

You can download TaiG 2.4.1 from our downloads page today.

If you’ve been experiencing issues getting stuck at 60% during the jailbreak process, then it’s highly recommended that you give version 2.4.1 a shot. I’ve already talked with several individuals who experienced issues with previous versions of the tool, and they confirmed that they were able to successfully jailbreak with this latest version.

What’s your experience been like with version 2.4.1? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

    here come the “Mac version” requests.

    • Bugs Bunnay

      Can we haz mac now?!? They dropping windows version like hotcakes!

      • Adrian

        I just ignore the gimme Mac folks. Who in their right mind would not have both OS’s ready at all times.

      • Chris_Topher12

        do you have both iOS and Android? I think that since the iPhone/iPad (Apple products, mind you) are the main products used in the jailbreaking community, it is not too far fetched to assume that these iPhone/iPad users have also decided on using a Mac (and a Mac alone).

        Plus have you tried using iTunes on Windows? Don’t poke the “gimme a Mac version” folk, they’re not as advanced and confident with running Win on a Mac as you are – and for this, we apologise.

      • mrgerbik

        Dosent anyone ever think that the reason its not on OSX/linux is because it may not be technicaly feasible ??
        Besides, anyone with a mac who doesnt have bootcamp installed is depriving themselves imo.

  • Adrian

    Doesn’t recognize iTunes issue still exist lol using older version of iTunes is silly.

    • Bugs Bunnay

      if… using an older version of iTunes is what makes the jailbreak do it’s thing and no work on the user side… maybe, just maybe, it’s not so silly after all.

  • Bugs Bunnay

    I think I will skip this one in favor of 2.4.2 releasing in a couple of days…

  • Fahad

    still doesnt work on the newest itunes for me. i have to use 12.0.1

    • f96lrs

      update itunes drives

  • Wesh

    Where is the time we had 1 jailbreak per iOS version 🙂

    But they’re excused; the early groups had experience I guess, while these great guys are getting to know the tricks of the trade I suppose.

    • In all fairness, I expect the earlier teams took longer to thoroughly test each scenario and squash any bugs. TaiG seem to have opted for the faster release with bug fixes released later on. This also lowers the strain the Repo servers since there’s not as many folk hammering them.

    • madrigalz

      I’ve heard of problems existing in windows 8.1.
      My advice would to downgrade to windows 7 and download latest iTunes.

    • E.N Chavez

      Same here
      I feel you

    • Matthew Fritz

      I ran it under VMWare Fusion and the Windows 10 setup. Adjusting the Processors and Settings in Fusion to allow 4 core processors and 2000+MB memory THEN starting Windows solved my problems.

  • Bluebriz

    Your download page only shows 2.4.1 beta….

  • Chang in Charge

    Finally jailbroken again!!!! VM did not work had to use an actual Windows machine! Used older version of iTunes and the drivers on Redmondpie.

  • And ppl swore on their lives the process was stable and easy. “Oh but I got it to work you’re just doing it wrong.” Yet they’re lease ANOTHER version to fix issues ppl are still complaining about.

  • Jeffrey Duy

    • TonyVee73

    • TonyVee73

      I used a different computer that has iTunes 12.1.2 and it worked fine.

  • gaucho

    one more? It’s getting boring these updates

  • Hehe18

    seems like all my apps are gone. The screen appears appless with only a white bar underneath for the dock and a background 🙁 setting, cydia and app store gone. I can even launch it using the spotlight search which launches every app except those 3 and is mainly the only way to open up apps. Any help guys?

  • Grimmrican

    I’ve been trying for hours now. I was previously jb on 8.1.2 iphone5 and decided to follow along with everyone. V2.4.1 seemed promising but I still get error -1103. I’ve followed all the instructions and hangs up on me between 30-40%. I also have the latest iTunes. I went as far as restoring the phone twice. In the end error -1103 haunts me.

  • Rebecca Green

    Do you need to rejailbreak if you got it to work the first time for iOS 8.4?

    • M2

      No. This just fixes the jail breaking tool. This updates Cydia but most likely you have updated Cydia through Cydia.

  • M2

    I hear ya but it’s really the only option besides pp. basically deal with it or don’t.

  • cheyenne

  • Farkas Valentin

    myimei.unlock is indeed expensive, people dont use it. I have tried att–iphoneunlocking, I believe it’s a greater unlocking site, they always unlock my iphone below in a few hours.
