Earlier today, TaiG released version 2.4.1 beta of its iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool on Windows. This update was aimed at fixing the frustrating 60% hangup issues that occurred during the jailbreak process.
Well under 24 hours later, and TaiG has upgraded the beta jailbreak tool to a public version. As such, the TaiG team is recommending that all new jailbreakers use version 2.4.1 instead of previous versions.
Good news for those of you who are still experiencing issues with the TaiG jailbreak. A new beta version has been released to address issues with users who are getting stuck at 60% during the jailbreak process.
Users who are already jailbroken will likely see a TaiG Untether update soon on Cydia once the 2.4.1 beta period ends. Check out the rest of our post for the release notes related to the release.
TaiG has elevated its latest jailbreak tool out of beta and are now promoting it as a public download. Version 2.3.1 of the TaiG tool's most notable change is its inclusion of the latest version of Cydia, version 1.1.20. Actually, this is apparently the only change contained within TaiG 2.3.1, as we noted in our overview of the 2.3.1 beta release a few days ago.
In an interesting move, the folks over at TaiG have released a new version of their iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool for Windows, but have labeled it as a beta. Version 2.3.1 beta incorporates the latest version of Cydia, version 1.1.20, and that's about all.
According to the change log, no other changes were implemented into the TaiG tool outside of the Cydia update. For such a small change, it's weird that they've labeled it as being a beta, but maybe this will become a new trend going forward until they have enough successful testers to deem it a stable release.
Hot on the heels of saurik's Cydia update, TaiG has updated its jailbreak tool to include the latest version of Cydia and to remove the setreuid patch. The update, which comes in at version 2.3, can be used by those of you who aren't currently jailbroken. If you are jailbroken, then you'll be able to update to the latest version of the TaiG untether via Cydia.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
A couple of days ago, we posted 50 tweaks to try out on iOS 8.3. Is that the end of the great jailbreak tweaks? Not at all! Today, we follow up with 50 additional jailbreak tweaks for iOS 8.3.

iOS 8.4 is scheduled to drop on Tuesday morning to usher in the Apple Music era. While this is extremely exciting for most iOS users, it should raise some eyebrows if you enjoy jailbreaking.
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?
