How to manually update to TaiG 2.1.2 if you’re already jailbroken

TaiG 2.1.2 Untether Upgrade Cydia Tutorial

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.

That’s because it’s super easy to update to the latest version of TaiG directly from Cydia itself. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to get up and running on the latest version of TaiG, which fixes all sorts of bugs, in just a few minutes.


You can now do this without adding any third-party repos. TaiG 2.1.2 has been added to Cydia’s default repos! Just refresh Cydia and you should see it. Also, some of you have raised concern about this original tutorial suggesting the use of a “pirate” repo. That repo is actually the very same repo that comes bundled with every TaiG jailbreak, so why we certainly don’t condone piracy, this was a way to provide you with the update as quickly as possible. Since the package is now on stock Cydia, there is no reason to use this repo.
