TaiG 2.1.3 Untether update released on default Cydia repos

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.

If you’re already jailbroken, and let’s face it, a lot of you are, then you may be wondering how to update your jailbreak to the latest version of TaiG—version 2.1.2. Should you start from scratch, or try to use the TaiG jailbreak tool again? No.

How to enable Cydia Substrate on the iOS 8.3 jailbreak

If you’re jailbroken on iOS 8.3, you’ve likely been frustrated by the lack of Cydia Substrate support up until now. As you’re no doubt aware of by now, Cydia Substrate hasn’t worked on iOS 8.3 due to a fix that needs to be implemented by the folks at TaiG.

The good news is that the fix is out, and I’ve confirmed that it works. If you’ve jailbroken your device with the TaiG 2.0 tool yesterday or earlier today, you can use a simple .deb file install to fix Cydia Substrate in just a few minutes.

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to install the TaiG 8.3 Untether .deb on your jailbroken iOS 8.3 device and fix Cydia Substrate.

As has been the norm with the past few jailbreak releases, this is a Windows only jailbreak tool. If you’re running Windows, you can follow our step-by-step tutorial.

The Pangu team says a 0.4 Untether update is coming soon

It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost been two weeks since Pangu surprised us all, providing a jailbreak for iOS 8. Since that day, we’ve seen numerous updates and releases to fix bugs and address other lingering issues.

Many of you, though, are still waiting for an OS X version of the iOS 8 jailbreak. From the looks of things, the OS X jailbreak is still a little ways off. Pangu is currently working on a 0.4 release of its Windows tool, which will drop shortly after the 0.3 update was released to fix overheating issues in 32-bit devices.

Pangu Untether updated to fix overheating issues on 32-bit devices [update: it’s back]

If you’ve jailbroken your iPhone 5, iPod touch 5th gen, iPhone 4s, iPad 2, or any other 32-bit iOS device, then perhaps you’ve encountered the problem that this update fixes. The launchd process would “spin” continuously burning CPU and battery, and in some cases, even making the device run extremely hot.

I’ve seen various reports about iPhone 5s running hot, but never really took them seriously. That probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve only jailbroken 64-bit devices like the iPhone 5s and 6 Plus. But apparently, this was a real issue affecting more than just a few. For that reason, Pangu has issued an updated version of its Untether package to fix the problem.

iOS 7.1.1 compatible jailbreak tweaks

It has been a few days since the Chinese team Pangu surprised us with an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak, and the dust is finally starting to settle. After learning that the jailbreak is safe to use, we’ve gone ahead and shared video guides on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 on Windows and how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 on OS X. We also answered some of the other pressing questions surrounding the jailbreak, including the two exploits used for this method.

We’ve been receiving a lot of questions on our social platforms and comments about which jailbreak tweaks are compatible with iOS 7.1.1, so we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list based off this shared document by JailbreakQA moderator iAdam1n. While our jailbreak guru Jeff Benjamin has tested some of these tweaks, we cannot guarantee that all of the packages listed will work with your specific iOS device, version or other tweaks installed… 

iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak burns two exploits

iOS developer iH8sn0w confirms that the just released iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak burns through two exploits that could have potentially been used towards an iOS 8 jailbreak. I want to emphasize the word “potentially” in that sentence, because it is fully possible that Apple would have patched the vulnerabilities before the release of iOS 8 in the first place. But now, they most certainly will.

iH8sn0w says that the only exploits burned relate to code signing and the kernel, alongside the “syslogd chown” vulnerability that was already disclosed at the Black Hat hacking conference in August. Interestingly, the jailbreak also contains code that will make it compatible with iOS 7.1.2 once the software update is publicly released, which could be as early as this Friday… 

How to jailbreak iOS 5.3 on the Apple TV 2 untethered

At iDB, we’ve been singing the praises of the Apple TV for years, especially one of the jailbroken variety. With a jailbroken Apple TV 2, you can do tons of cool stuff, like run XBMC, ATV Flash (black), and loads of other interesting apps and tweaks.

Simply put, the Apple TV hardware in and of itself is good, but jailbreaking the Apple TV 2 sends its value through the roof. Yesterday, FireCore, the creators of the Seas0nPass Apple TV jailbreak tool, released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.3 thanks to some help from winocm and iH8sn0w. Check inside for the full video walkthrough that shows how to jailbreak your Apple TV 2 untethered.

Hacker claims to have iOS 6.1.3 untether binary

With iOS 7 on the horizon, many rumblings have been surfacing lately about the possibility of an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. First there was UnthreadedJB, who after releasing an obscure iOS 5.1 jailbreak for CDMA enable iPhone 4’s, claims to have an iOS 6.1.3 jailbreak. Those claims have never been solidified by any independent sources, so the verdict is definitely still out about its legitimacy.

But there’s still hope. iOS hacker winocm, well known throughout the jailbreak community, took to twitter this morning to confirm that he has a binary for an iOS 6.1.3 untethered jailbreak.

PlanetBeing: evasi0n jailbreak likely killed in upcoming iOS 6.1.3 update

We knew that the fun wouldn’t last forever, and it looks like the vulnerabilities used for the evasi0n jailbreak will be fixed in an upcoming iOS update. PlanetBeing, one of the founding members of the evad3rs team that brought us the long awaited iOS 6.x untethered jailbreak, reports that Apple has patched one of the five exploits that evasi0n uses to accomplish the jailbreak.

PlanetBeing, known as David Wang among close associates, briefly sat down with Forbes writer Andy Greenberg, and confirmed what everyone knew was inevitable. The evasi0n jailbreak will most likely be patched in iOS 6.1.3.
