It has been an incredibly busy week for the jailbreak community and for iDB this week following the official release of an iOS 9.2-9.3.3 jailbreak from Pangu, and as a result, things are starting to pick up again.
In this piece, we'll talk about all the jailbreak tweaks that were released this week. We'll start with our favorites, and then move on to the rest later in the piece.
The jailbreak community has been very quiet for several months but this is about to change with today's release of a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 - 9.3.3. Despite what has been another slow week, there are still some developers rocking jailbroken devices, and as a result, tweak development continues.
In this roundup, we'll show you the jailbreak tweaks that were released this week, starting with our favorites and then moving on to the rest.
Jailbreakers have been hard pressed to get some really functional jailbreak tweaks as of late. The lack of a jailbreak on Apple's latest firmware has put Cydia in somewhat of a drought.
Nevertheless, there are still some jailbreak developers who are still developing for the jailbreak community, and although this week has once again been slow, Cydia isn't completely dry just yet. We'll go over this week's releases in this roundup.
Only last month, well-known Italian iOS hacker and developer Luca Todesco teased a really nifty browser-based jailbreak that appeared to work on iOS 9.3.2.
Although the jailbreak would never be released to the public, Todesco says that Apple's upcoming iOS 10 release closes an important exploit used in the jailbreak, which was shown off just last month.
TaiG has released a new version of its Mac jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4. Version 1.1.0 of TaiG for Mac aims to fix an issue present for users of OS X 10.9. If you've experienced issues with jailbreaking your iPhone using the OS X version of TaiG, then it is recommended that you update to this latest version.
As we told you about earlier, the iOS 8.4 jailbreak is now officially available on Mac from TaiG. The TaiG jailbreak tool for Mac is a simple and easy to use tool to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad on your Mac without having to resort to using a virtual machine.
In this video tutorial, I will show you how to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your Mac using the TaiG tool.
Over a month after the original TaiG jailbreak for Windows surfaced, TaiG for Mac is now officially available for OS X users. TaiG for Mac will allow you to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your Mac without having to resort to using a virtual machine.
If you've yet to jailbreak due to the lack of a proper TaiG tool for OS X, now is your time. You can find the download link for TaiG for Mac inside.
The TaiG team has officially released version 2.4.3 of its iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool for Windows. The update piggybacks off the beta version of the 2.4.3 release that was ushered in last week.
Version 2.4.3 brings jailbreak optimization to the fore, and should theoretically result in a more stable and straightforward jailbreak experienced for its users. If you've yet to jailbreak, then we recommend using TaiG 2.4.3. You can find the full download in this post.
One of the very first things that I tried when I got the iPod touch 6th generation (full review) was to jailbreak. To my surprise, both the PP jailbreak for Mac and the Windows-only TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.4 worked out of the box. This surprised me because in times past, the tools used to perform the jailbreak needed to be updated to support new devices.
With the iPod touch 6th generation, this is not so; you can jailbreak immediately. In this post, I'll show you how easy it is to jailbreak your iPod touch 6 using the latest version of 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.
TaiG is pushing ahead with new releases of its TaiG jailbreak tool on an almost daily basis it seems. This latest version of TaiG is a beta release, version 2.4.2.
The latest beta version of the TaiG jailbreak tool is Windows-only, which isn't exactly a surprise given TaiG's release history. It also serves, more importantly, to fix jailbreak errors related to 30% and 40% hang-ups during the jailbreak process.
The TaiG jailbreak for either iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4 has been out for over two and a half weeks. Many users have jailbroken their iPhone, iPads, and iPod touches as a result.
Even though the TaiG tool has been Windows-only this entire time, plenty of Mac-only jailbreakers have been able to use it by means of a Bootcamp partition, or a virtual machine—which is far and away the most popular way to jailbreak on a Mac.
So the question stands to be asked: do you even care about a Mac version of TaiG at this point? Rumors are swirling that a Mac tool is indeed in the works, but it's been so long, I imagine most who were starving for a jailbreak either used a friend's Windows computer, or took advantage of one of the above options.
