Install iOS 9 beta 5 Free no Developer UDID Download, Downgrade to Jailbreak 8.4 – Following the recent iOS 8.4 jailbreak, and iOS 9’s unveiling and subsequent release of iOS 9 beta 1 to registered iOS Developers in June, Apple seeded iOS 9 beta 5 for those enrolled in the company’s iOS and OS X Developer program. In iOS 9, Apple has not only increased security measures (details on a potential iOS 9 jailbreak post iOS 8.4 in light of said measure can be found here), but they’ve also significantly improved performance system-wide. Furthermore, iOS 9 beta 5 finally brings true split-screen multitasking to iPads (though full access to both app panes simultaneously is restricted to the iPad Air 2 until an iOS 9 jailbreak is released), proactive “Intelligence” for improved ease-of-use and more. Before getting too excited however, it’s paramount to mention that a potential iOS 9 beta 5 upgrade from an 8.x jailbreakable firmware will result in the instant loss of your device’s jailbreak, though a simple downgrade by plugging into iTunes and clicking “Restore” will allow you to once again jailbreak on 8.4. With that being said, in this educational guide, we’ll highlight an iTunes security flaw that enables devices on iOS 8 through 8.4 to update to iOS 9 beta 5 for free without the necessary UDID registration that’s typical of beta updates. For additional details on iOS 9 beta 5, and how to install the firmware, continue reading.
How to Jailbreak 8.4 iOS Untethered TaiG 2.4.3 iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, iPad Air 2, Mini 3 Tutorial on Windows or Mac OS X – What an exciting day, following last week’s TaiG iOS 8.3 jailbreak and today’s release of both iOS 8.4 and Apple Music, TaiG updated their tool to jailbreak iOS 8.4! Thankfully, in Apple’s haste to issue iOS 8.4 and rollout Apple Music, the company left the vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG fully unpatched. In other words, you can jailbreak 8.4 on the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, iPhone 5, 4s, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod Touch 5 and all other iOS 8-based iPad models! Beyond being the first firmware to support Apple Music, iOS 8.4 revamps the default Music app, corrects several issues pertaining to said app and improves the iBooks app. If you’ve been holding off on updating to iOS 8.1.3 or higher until now, this is the perfect time to do so – for complete details on how to jailbreak 8.4 with TaiG, continue reading!
iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 Released by Apple, will TaiG Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered? – Today, without any prior indication, roughly two weeks and two days following its initial seed, Apple issued iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 for developers. iOS 8.4.1, being the firmware that’s expected to patch the TaiG jailbreak (though a miracle could still happen – see video below for details), is an extremely minor update likely featuring bug fixes and optimizations. Currently, those who update to the beta seed from a jailbroken device on iOS 8.4 will forfeit their Untethered TaiG 8.4 jailbreak, as the latest Untethered utility isn’t compatible with the beta firmware, regardless of whether Apple closed TaiG’s exploits in 8.4.1 beta 2. As of now, any release timeframe would be based on conjecture and speculation, though seeing as the firmware appears as though it’s a very minor update, we likely won’t see an iOS 8.4.1 beta 3 release prior to 8.4.1’s public availability. To learn more about the new iOS 8.4.1 beta 2 release and whether we’ll be able to jailbreak 8.4.1 post iOS 8.4, continue reading past the break.
Best Top iOS 8.4 Cydia tweaks for iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, iPad Air 2, Mini 3, iPod 6 and More – With TaiG’s latest iOS 8.4 Untethered jailbreak utility (version 2.4.3) having been updated somewhat recently, the latest tool has matured immeasurably thanks to the hundreds of hours of tedious work put into keeping the 8.3 and 8.4 jailbreak relevant by the TaiG group. However, a new firmware (iOS 8.4.1, which went into beta stages almost two weeks ago) threatens jailbreaking’s ability to function on the latest public iteration of iOS. In light of what may very well be the inevitable patch of the TaiG jailbreak iOS 8.4 utility, we’ve opted to compile a list of roughly 80 top Cydia Tweaks that function on the latest iOS 8.4 jailbreak! For those of you who are new to the jailbreak scene, Cydia tweaks are packages obtained from the third party distribution platform that is Cydia (which can only be obtained by way of a jailbreak) that modify your device by adding additional features and/or functionality.

Apple Releases 8.4.1 beta 1, TaiG to Jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered? – Today, in a completely unexpected release, Apple seeded iOS 8.4.1 to developers ensuing last week’s public release of both iOS 8.4 and the company’s new Apple Music streaming service. Unfortunately, jailbreakers running iOS 8.3 or 8.4 will certainly be threatened by iOS 8.4.1’s inevitable public release. iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 carries a slightly revised build number over its predecessor of 12H304, versus 12H14 – such a minor jump is indicative of very minor changes. Today’s new iOS 8.4.1 beta 1 seed is available for immediate download via Apple’s newly revamped Developer portal. As far as jailbreaking is concerned, as alluded to above, the firmware may very well patch the TaiG iOS 8.4 jailbreak once it’s issued to the public, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 Untethered utilizing TaiG. However, seeing as iOS 8.4.1. is one of the most discrete beta releases we’ve seen, jailbreakers could also be in for a surprise following 8.4.1’s release. For additional details pertaining to Apple’s new 8.4.1 beta 1 release, as well as the current Untethered TaiG 8.4 jailbreak, continue reading past the break!
Apple Releases iOS 8.4, Can I Jailbreak 8.4 Untethered, TaiG’s Update? – Today, in an expected (and previously announced when confirming Apple Music) release, Apple issued iOS 8.4 to the general public. Currently, unlike its predecessor, iOS 8.4 cannot be jailbroken right now by way of TaiG in its current state. Furthermore, Apple’s latest iteration of iOS is available in two flavors: as an OTA (short for over-the-air) update and as a traditional update via iTunes, which is a method most veteran iOS users can appreciate (it’s also the only route for ensuring a successful jailbreak on a jailbreakable firmware). However, it’s of paramount importance that current iOS 8 through 8.3 jailbreak users avoid installing the latest update at all costs! In light of iOS 8.4’s planned release to accommodate Apple Music, it’s possible that the minor update doesn’t address the vulnerabilities exploited by TaiG in their iOS 8.3 jailbreak and that a simple adaptation of their tool will be able to jailbreak iOS 8.4. As of now though, it’s not possible for any device to jailbreak 8.4 untethered when utilizing the latest TaiG 2.1.3 utility. Continue reading past the break for more details on TaiG 2.1.3, how the iOS 8.4 update may play into jailbreaking and whether you should update!

Like its two processors, TaiG 2.1.3 is capable of jailbreaking iOS 8.3 on all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models, including the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. However, with iOS 8.4 right around the corner (literally, we’re less than 24 hours away from its public release), will the jailbreak include support for Apple’s newest firmware – i.e. will TaiG be able to jailbreak iOS 8.4 Untethered as well as iOS 8.3? For information on both the TaiG 2.1.3 update and how iOS 8.4 may affect jailbreaking, continue reading past the break.
Jailbreak iOS 9 Untethered Update: Pangu, TaiG and K33N, How to Jailbreak iOS 9.0 and 8.4 Status – In light of iOS 9 having recently entered developer beta testing, and the fact that Pangu has successfully achieved an iOS 8.3 jailbreak, it’s time to look forward towards the future: the second half of 2015, iOS 9’s release and beyond. iOS 9.0 will be released to the general public in the fall of 2015, alongside the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, as is already known to be the target of a few teams interested in jailbreaking iOS 9. However, to address the current state of jailbreak affairs prior to discussing what’s next for the community, the latest iOS 8.1.2 (and 8.2 betas 1 and 2) Untethered PP and TaiG jailbreak utilities were patched some months ago by Apple with the release of iOS 8.1.3 – a patch that’s persisted throughout iOS 8.x updates, including iOS 8.3 and the four iOS 8.4 betas. Before the public, and jailbreakers the world over, can truly settle into contemplating future iOS 9 utilities, when will we receive the final jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4, which will certainly be the final chapter for iOS 8.x? Looking back, last year’s iOS 7.1.x Pangu jailbreak remained unpatched from June of 2014 until September, when Apple issued iOS 8.0 to the masses,which is crucial to Having said that, when will the next jailbreak be released for the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPod touch 5 and other iOS-based devices?

PP States iOS 8.3 Jailbreak to be Released in July, after 8.4, K33n’s iOS 9 Jailbreak Plans – Today, following the conclusion of WWDC on Monday, a few interesting developments in the realm of jailbreaking have come to light. Without an iOS 8.3 jailbreak from either TaiG or Pangu, those new to the scene are undoubtedly starting to panic as we approach one of the longest periods we’ve had to wait for a new jailbreak utility – second only to days of iOS 6 – iOS 7, when 6.1.3 patched the jailbreak in March, 2013 and we didn’t receive a new untethered utility until evasi0n7 in December, 2013. So, with Pangu having recently demonstrated their ability to jailbreak iOS 8.3 at MOSEC and with iOS 8.4 right around the corner, what can we expect as far as a new jailbreak for iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3? Interestingly, PP Assistant (the group behind the Mac OS X port of TaiG) recently shared their insider opinion on the topic. Moreover, what about moving forward – i.e. jailbreaking past iOS 8.3? According to new details from Forbes, an elite group of Chinese hackers dubbed Keen Team, also spelled K33n, may have their sights on jailbreaking iOS 9 once the firmware is made available to the public later this fall.
