TaiG

The folks at TaiG have released yet another beta for the iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool on Windows. Labeled version 2.4.3 beta, this update is there to optimize the jailbreak process.

As TaiG has been doing for some time now, they are suggesting that jailbreakers stick to the public versions of the TaiG tool, and leave the beta versions to testers. In this post, you’ll find the download links for both the publicly available version of TaiG and the beta version.

To download TaiG 2.4.1 (the public edition) or the new 2.4.3 beta, you can head over to our downloads page.

Here is the full change log for TaiG 2.4.3 beta:

  • Optimize the process of jailbreak.

As you can see, there’s not much there, but it’s safe to assume that this update makes the jailbreak more efficient, and perhaps even faster.

As a side note, it’s now possible to jailbreak the iPod touch 6th generation, which just launched yesterday.

What do you think about TaiG’s beta updates? Are you glad to see them taking this approach?

  • Levent Korkmaz

    I think they are planning something with those beta and main releases. I think they will make a different jailbreaking system on next work of their work.

  • gaucho

    I have nothing against, I’ve been a jailbreak fan, but now I’d rather not do the jailbreak on my devices, they have realized how much is unstable and buggy jailbreak today?Share the news about it just because someone can always find useful, but in my opinion I prefer to let my iPhones as they are. Note the both updates are being released and never stabilizes, soon the new APPLE Software will be released and everything will start …

    • leart

      I think the same, there’s something that is changed over the years, of course not the jailbreak maybe the raised security level make a jailbroken device unstable, broken.
      I’m using for fun a iPod 2 and I’m amazed how stable it is jailbroken, never a crash even activator commands are responding instantly, even if I use them very fast nothing it will happen. if I do the same on my iphone 4, to use activator gestures fast, it would go in safe mode several times..

      • gaucho

        A long the jailbreak was good today is unstable and is no longer reliable as time ago.

    • Niclas

      Actually the jailbreak itself is very stable.

      They are updating cydia version and optimizing how the jailbreak enters your device, making sure you don’t get stuck in the jailbreaking process.
      If you’re crashing to safe mode you’re running something not updated or a few clashing tweaks.

      If you only have activator and no other tweak installed and still crash, install crash reporter, reproduce the crash and send the log to Ryan so he can fix it, because that is very rare.

      • gaucho

        thanks for the tip, but in my opinion they are two groups developing the jailbreak, it makes them worry to release fast without thinking about software quality

      • Niclas

        Sorry to be the one who breaks it for you, but you are wrong.
        The one group who developed this jb is taig. The one maintaing cydia and substrate (and some more stuff) is saurik. And the one who created activator is Ryan.

        Delete your opinion and read up on how the jailbreak works if you wanna add to the conversation. You gessing here is only gonna confuse/mislead people.

      • Neal

        Wow, you’re a bit a of a know it all huh Niclas? The current Taig Jailbreak is extremely unstable and calling the sky red doesn’t make it red. I’ve never gotten stuck at 20%, 60% or any other % when using their 8.4 jailbreak tool (2.1 through 2.4.3), but no matter how many times I’ve restored using iTunes from the iPhones recovery and re-jailbreak I still get blue screens during reboots and an occasional bootloop that cycles twice before booting up; to clarify, this after the jailbreak is successful and the Taig Tool reboots my phone for the last time.

        I’ve been rooting android devices and running ROM’s since 2009 and running jailbreaks on iOS since 2011 and have never had these issues. I’ve read numerous reports on twitter of people complaining about it. My 5S had never seen these behaviors when stock and since I’ve restored to stock (yesterday) I have not seen these behaviors, but I’ll bet your life if I used Taig’s tool 2.4.2 beta or 2.4.1 I’ll get these blue screen and/or boot loops during reboots, which is a kernel panic.

        Just because you develop some buggy tweak doesn’t mean you know everything about jailbreaking.

      • Niclas

        Ok, but just because you’re calling the sky purple, doesn’t mean it is purple.
        I can tell I’m grinding your gear, but truth is, the jb is considered stabile. Very few people have issues with it.

        Sorry to hear that you are one of the few.
        You’re comparing this jailbreak with earlier jailbreaks? Which jailbreak used these exploits? None.
        They are unique. The problem is that these exploits might be much harder to integrate to a flawless jailbreak than earlier.
        And just to let you know, often crashes are on purpose in explots.

        If you continue to have problems jailbreaking I would advice you to try on another computer or try the pp25 tool (witch uses Taigs exploits of course).

    • iPhoneWINS

      lol… my iPhone 6+ is 100% stable;e on jailbroken IOS8.4 done with PP… I have must have tweaks that i cannot do without .. iPhone sucks without a jailbreak

      • gaucho

        very good, but this is also why I do not like most of jailbreak, just before a group was freed and the jailbreak today are different in some ways you can tell me that’s good. But in my opinion when several trying to do something separately just one competition, and end up releasing a full software errors and bugs. do you agree?

    • Mariano Martinez

      Late jailbreak is very stable if you do a fresh install. Dont know why you had those issues maybe you did something wrong.

      • gaucho

        I did nothing wrong, I’ve lost faith in the jailbreak, with many updates and conflicts that previously had not, today already restored all my devices and I will not over do jailbreak, do not criticize the opinion and the decision to anyone, just for me jailbreak is not reliable, but it is just an opinion of mine, thanks for your tip and good luck friend

      • Mariano Martinez

        Ok if you dont like it or not want it. You are a free man. But for everone”s information if you like jailbreak just DO IT! IT WORKS PERFECTLY !

      • gaucho

        thank you

      • Niclas

        You are confusing the actual jailbreak with tweaks.

        Don’t use tweaks that crashes, or just report them and uninstall afterwards and wait for an update.

  • James G

    Have they announced if 8.4.1 kills the jailbreak?

    • iPhoneWINS

      i bet it does but who cares ? 8.4 works great and 8.4.2 will be out 3 weeks after .1 also

      • James G

        8.4 doesn’t work so great for me. I have encountered a few bugs that I’d like to see addressed in 8.4.1 but they aren’t TOO big of a deal, I guess.

      • Niclas

        Which bugs are that?

      • James G

        I’ve had Maps crash a few times or not load directions data at all. There are still bugs in Music that doesn’t permit me to download songs for offline playback. There are iCloud Drive sync bugs that doesn’t download my keyboard shortcuts properly from iCloud.

        Those are just the ones I can list off the top of my head.

      • Niclas

        I had a gps lock problem once, other than that, smooth sailing.

        The music and icloud look like backend bugs.

  • Wanli Zhang

    Rumor has it that PP25 stole the code from Taige, but PP25 JB tool for 8.4(Windows) succeeded at 1st try on my iPad Air. As a contrast, ALL the versions up to 2.4.1 by Taige have failed. Guess PP25 did more than steal Taige’s code.

    • CS

      They implemented that code more efficiently possibly… All I know is that it works ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Mark S

      Yeah they may have stolen the code but their tool and process are vastly superior to Taig’s buggy tool. In this case I’m glad we have competition. I’m sure many couldn’t have jailbroken at all if it wasn’t for PP.

    • iPhoneWINS

      PP > TAIG

  • Mark S

    The jailbreak doesn’t need to be faster. It needs to be more stable with predictable/repeatable results.

  • Mr.Adam

    Hmm. How many of these is there going to be?! I’m still just hanging out on 8.4 stock till this thing is really actually for real a solid jailbreak. So many updates makes me wonder… I’m a long time jail breaker too. I was on 8.1.2 for a looooong time but I’m really enjoying the crispness of stock iOS 8.4. Except the music app lags the whole system after you listen to music for more than 10 minutes at a time when switching a song or just entering and exiting the app! I’m hoping they fix that in 8.4.1 but then I won’t be able to jailbreak! Decisions, decisions! 🙂

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      25PP is super stable‼️

      • iPhoneWINS

        and has a perfect mac version

  • Todd Young

    Like I’ve said before, unfortunately almost every JB developer over the years has lacked any true testing protocols. As a result, the public effectively becomes alpha and beta testers of unproven code.

    TaiG may have begun classifying their last two releases as beta, but the reality is that almost all of their JB releases for iOS 8.3/8.4 were probably best to be classified as early alpha releases up until now. Otherwise, it really sets the wrong expectation for anyone who installs the first few releases.

    • I don’t recall RedSn0w, Evasi0n or Absinthe ever being that buggy. They tended to work first time, all the time and were cross platform too!

      Everybody has got to start somewhere though, hopefully Taig will get better at producing jailbreak tools.

      • Todd Young

        Very true. But I don’t recall in any of those JB releases being released as beta code. However, to your point, I believe Saurik and some of the tweak developers had early access to the code before it went to the public, which *could* be characterized as some level of alpha/beta testing.

        Meanwhile, with the Chinese developers, Saurik has been getting the code only after it goes public, and then the JB team (TaiG in this instance) has to go back and make fixes afterwards to ensure Cydia compatibility. Piss poor, IMHO.

      • burge

        All versions redsnow got labeled as beta.

      • Niclas

        Sorry but you are dead wrong. It happened lots of times.

      • Todd Young

        I’ve participated in all jailbreaks since 1999, and I can ensure you that public beta testing has been more than the exception than the rule. Go back and research it for yourself, if you don’t believe me.

      • Niclas

        Participated? As in created? I don’t think so.
        You haven’t even used jailbreaks in 1999.

        The iPhone came out in 2007.
        Jailbreaking is strongly assosiated with ios. You don’t call it jailbreaking on android for example.

        Redsn0w was more or less constantly in beta.
        Evasi0n had betas.
        Jailbreakme 3 had betas.
        absinthe had betas
        I could go on all day buddy.

        You don’t know what you’re talking about, stop wasting my and everyone else’s time here.

      • Todd Young

        I corrected my typo — I meant 2009. Regardless of the typo or how many did or didn’t release a beta at some point, my original point still stands: internal alpha & beta testing protocols exist for a reason — they result in more stable releases, and the recent mess with TaiG releases is what started this whole conversation.

      • Niclas

        No. It is very much relevant. Your credibility is gone and you’re wasting your time and mine.
        Your point is shatterd, there is no point.

        The Taig release is stabile enough since saurik said so, a long time ago.

      • Todd Young

        Your reply is complete troll bait. If you keep saying I’m wasting your time, then why are you spending so much time replying? Seriously?

      • Niclas

        To not let you mislead and confuse people that read here when you don’t have a clue of what you’re talking about.

      • Todd Young

        Yeah, right. Troll on.

      • Niclas

        Good punch line.
        I’m sure people won’t see that you’re guessing left and right in your earlier replys.

    • Niclas

      You have to take in account in how the exploits work and where…
      This means that it could be very easy to get one bunch of exploits to work, basically just run and done.

      While another bunch of exploits need meticulously optimized code executed just right to work correctly and may be needed to optimized for every single device with different settings.

      • Todd Young

        Yup. All the more reason for having solid testing protocols in place.

      • Niclas

        No. They could test it until ios9 comes out, but that is just stupid.
        What they did was make sure it’s solid on fresh devices and advice ppl to jb on freshly restored devices.
        And then improve it for the ones that is not, along the way.

      • Todd Young

        Huh? Who here is suggesting a JB developer should test it and not release it to the public until the next version comes out — that would be non-sensicle, given Apple closes the signing window after the next release.

        What I’ve been advocating, is that they follow a limited testing protocol internally and with Saurik, before they release it to the public. That usually can be accomplished in a few weeks, regardless. Furthermore, once a JB developer releases their JB into the wild, Apple engineers immediately get a hold of it and look into patching the exploits, so the clock begins ticking at that point in time, in the infamous cat & mouse chase of JB developer & Apple.

      • Niclas

        The point is that delaying the jb is stupid. It is time-limited.
        And in case of a problem, the untether and tool gets updated. Problem solved.

      • Todd Young

        You seem to think that by a JB developer completing some basic alpha / beta testing, that this causes a delay. What you fail to realize, is that until the JB release is made available to the public, there is no “delay” that then allows Apple or anyone else to reverse engineer the JB and patch the exploits used.

      • Niclas

        It does cause a delay. Most likely the jailbreak will be closed in the next release or release after that depending on how far the competition of that version has gotten.

        Releasing early is 101 in jailbraking.
        Apple knows in a day or two the exact exploits used so there is no delay for apple. That time is not relevant. When the jb is released, the exploits are burnt.

        The only important factor of the release is timing. Maximizing the uptime of the jailbrak.

      • Todd Young

        That’s pure speculation — the clock doesn’t start ticking between a JB release and Apple patching the exploits used until the JB is in the wild. Period.

      • Niclas

        I never said anything contradicting that. You should probably read that again….
        “When the jb is released, the explots are burnt”

  • M2

    What about a Mac version? Lol.

    • Niclas

      PP25

      • iPhoneWINS

        yes indeed TAOG dos not deserve al;l this attention at all PP has done better

  • James Grace

    Is the iTunes issue fixed or do I still need to load a earlier version?

    • Dale

      early version

  • iPhoneWINS

    and still no mac version lol … PPFTW

  • Dale

    I’ve been doing the jailbreaks for only what 4 years. My opinion the over all stability hasn’t really changed. I think finding the right tweaks is the hardest part yea there are cool one’s then there are useful ones. I’ve started backing off trying most cool looking tweaks cause most drain the dam battery, springtomizer 3 is my stable and the one that lets you swipe your finger along to move where you are in texting. My opinion stability hasn’t changed in jail breaking….

    • Dale

      Are from Colorado or something?

  • SIMON

    Endless TaiGs… Seriously?

  • Neal

    I use Bootcamp on my Mac and run windows 7. I restore my phone with iTunes by powering down the phone, holding the home button and plugging it into iTunes on the Mac side of my OS which puts my 5S into recovery and restores it. After it finishes restoring, I eject my iPhone, go through setup on the phone where I disable location services, don’t sign into iTunes, don’t use iCloud, don’t use passcode or fingerprint, disable diagnostic and usage, don’t use siri, when the phone screen comes up I go into settings and confirm I’m signed out of iCloud, iTunes, etc. I place my phone on do not disturb, put it in airplane mode, disable timeout, reboot my phone and boot my Mac into Bootcamp, connect my phone, open it and “Trust Computer” activate Taig’s latest tool version 600, 000 (sarcasm), run as admin, the jailbreak process is smooth and flies through percentages, the final reboot Taig’s tool say’s “jailbreak successful :)”, my iPhone gets a blue screen or boot loops.. Sorry nay sayers, I’m more thorough than most and I’ve done this a dozen times in 2 weeks and it’s always the same outcome.

    As a professional photographer I will inform you for a well known fact that more megapixels doesn’t equate to better image quality. Just suggests you are able to printing larger photographs, and who the hell does that with phone photographs?
