Every day I receive at least a dozen requests for a tweak compatibility list for iOS 8.4. Instead of reinventing the wheel, someone has already performed all of the leg work creating a list.
As was done with the iOS 8.3 jailbreak, our buddies over at r/jailbreak have added a column for iOS 8.4 on their tweak compatibility spreadsheet. Instead of trying to guess which tweaks might be compatible with iOS 8.4 and which may not, you can simply look at this sheet to get a good indicator on what tweaks are currently supported, and which ones might need to be updated.

After a false start earlier this morning with an update to its iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool, TaiG has officially released version 2.2.1.
This update is security oriented, as it contains the setreuid patch to prevent applications from obtaining to root privileges through setreuid. The update also contains stability improvements. If you’ve yet to jailbreak your iOS 8.4 device, it is recommended that you use this latest version of TaiG’s tool, version 2.2.1. Read More
TaiG has updated its iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool to fix a security issue, but as of now, that update is no longer available on its website or via Cydia. TaiG 2.2.2, which includes a setreuid patch to prevent applications from obtaining to root privileges through setreuid, was deemed unsafe by saurik. With this in mind, please don’t upgrade. Read More
Yesterday, we brought you a full review of a hot new jailbreak tweak called Mirmir (formerly Mimir). This is a new tweak that allows you to have true side-by-side windowed multitasking on jailbroken iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4.

If you’re looking to try some of the available jailbreak tweaks for iOS 8, chances are you’ll need Activator to support them. Since the current public version of Activator doesn’t yet play nice with iOS 8.4, Ryan Petrich has graciously released a beta version on his beta repo. Be sure to grab this Activator update to ensure better compatibility with all of your favorite jailbreak tweaks. Read More
To state that today has been busy would be an egregious understatement. Actually, the last two weeks have been downright insane with releases.
As you’re likely aware of by now, Apple dropped iOS 8.4 today with the new Apple Music service. This has proved to wildly popular, and many, including yours truly, didn’t hesitate to ditch the iOS 8.3 jailbreak for iOS 8.4. I personally did so knowing that the likelihood of an iOS 8.4 jailbreak was very high given the timing.
Well, not a few hours after 8.4 went live and everyone was enjoying the new Beats 1 radio station, news began to spread that a jailbreak was released. That, as it turns out, was true. The rest, as they say, is history.
Here’s our full roundup of the iOS 8.4 jailbreak. As we did with iSO 8.3, anything related to this firmware from a jailbreak perspective will be contained in this post. Read More
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. Read More
One of the most popular and well-regarded tweaks available on Cydia has just been updated. Springtomize 3, under the tutelage of another developer, has been updated to work with the latest Apple firmware. I’ve tested it out personally, and can confirm that it works on iOS 8.4. Read More
As expected, TaiG has released an update to its jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4. Just a while ago, PP released a jailbreak tool, which TaiG claims uses its code. For those of you who didn’t want to bother with the PP tool for this reason, you’ll be glad to know that TaiG’s updated 2.2.0 jailbreak is now available for iOS 8.4 users. Read More
PP, the same team who released a previous iOS 8 jailbreak for Mac, and who was accused of taking code from TaiG, has purportedly released an iOS 8.4 jailbreak. We have been able to confirm that this jailbreak works on iOS 8.4. That said, TaIG claims that PP stole its code, but we are not able to confirm this as of yet.
Surprise. Only a few hours after iOS 8.4 released, there is a working jailbreak. The tool, entitled PPGhost, is a Windows only jailbreak tool that works for iOS 8.4. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your iPhone or iPad using the PP Jailbreak tool.
There are some rumblings that PP took the code from TaiG, but we have not confirmed this. As such, you may want to wait for the TaiG tool update to jailbreak iOS 8.4. I personally prefer waiting, as it’s wrong to steal code, if the claims are true, which are difficult to prove. When TaiG releases their updated tool, we’ll post a tutorial, and deprecate this one. In the meantime… Read More
Mirmir (formerly Mimir) is a new jailbreak tweak by Ethan Arbuckle and Liam Thynne, which will allow you to run multiple apps at the same time on your iPhone or iPad. I was able to run four apps side-by-side-by-side-by-side with minimal slowdown on my iPad Air 2. It was quite impressive.
Mirmir uses its own built in gesture system for invocation, but it works with Activator as well. If you’re looking for a true-multitasking tweak for iOS 8, then look no further. Watch our full video walkthrough for all of the juicy details. Read More

If you’re looking to try something new, or you’re completely new to jailbreaking, then you need to watch this video. Read More
Although I’m far from being a hardcore gamer, and even less so of a PC gamer, my ears perked up when I heard about Moonlight compatibility on iOS on Reddit. Moonlight lets your stream games from your PC to external devices. With Moonlight for iOS, this means that you can stream your full collection of Steam games to your iPhone or iPad.
Moonlight itself is an open-source Nvidia GameStream client that lets PC owners equipped with the proper hardware to stream games to other computers and Android tablets. An official iOS client is coming, but you can try it now if you’re jailbroken. Read More
Although there have been rumblings and whispers about the fact that iOS 8.4 is susceptible to the same exploits that allowed TaiG to jailbreak iOS 8.3, until there is solid evidence, that’s all still speculation.
It’s possible that the release of iOS 8.4 could spell an early end to the fun we’ve been enjoying lately. So how does one prepare for iOS 8.4? Read More
For those of you already jailbroken when TaiG 2.1.3 launched earlier this morning, you may have wondered when you would be able to join in on the 2.1.3 fun. Sure, you could have always added TaiG’s third-party repo, but understandably, some aren’t comfortable with doing that for various reasons.
Well, the TaiG 2.1.3 untether now has saurik’s stamp of approval, as it has appeared on his Telesphoreo default Cydia repo. This means that by performing a simple refresh on Cydia’s changes tab, you should see an available upgrade to the TaiG untether. Read More
As we mentioned earlier, TaiG has released version 2.1.3 of its jailbreak tool, and it’s a significant update as far as fixes go. First and foremost, it works with virtual machines, so you no longer need to modify your virtual machine to use the tool. Secondly, it fixes the 20% hangup. With these things in mind, we thought we’d show you how to jailbreak using this latest TaiG update.
This post is primarily aimed at those who have yet to jailbreak, and are looking for guidance with the latest tool. In the video that follows, we’ll show you the proper way to go about jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad, and we’ll show you how well the tool runs on a virtual machine. Read More
