The first publicly available jailbreak for iOS 8.3 is here - and he comes back from China. However, the installation is not easy, as a self-experiment shows.
The timing of the publication of the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.3 works shortly before release of iOS 8.4, which is due to the end of June, a bit inconvenient: The window of the installation could be small. In addition, the installation is how our self-test shows no problems.
First is to say that the installation at your own risk as with all jailbreaks. Because at worst threaten hardware damage. In addition, you should definitely create a complete backup of your iPhone or iPad. Should something go wrong, then can restore the data.
Jailbreak in one click
TaiG 2.0.0 can be exploited on all iOS 8.3 enabled devices will be installed under Windows. The download is available here. Then check which version of iTunes is installed. Do this, press the Alt key, click on the menu on the question mark, and then click Info. In the first line the program version appears. With the current version 12.1.2 However, there were problems; It is therefore recommended that the older version 184.108.40.206 to look at Google and install manually. On the iOS device to iOS 8.3 has been found.
If all goes well, it concerns with TaiG 2.0.0 to a one-click jailbreak. For this, the iPhone is connected to the computer, ended iTunes and started TaiG. The ZIP folder does not completely unpack it, it puts everything important in a file. Then, the process goes through and you get a device on which Jailbreak including Cydia exist.
Cydia can help
But it can also lead to problems. So TaiG will sometimes stand at 20 percent, the iPhone is continuously rebooting - it hangs in a so-called boot loop. Exactly this problem occurred in our experiment. We could solve it by installing an older version of iTunes. According to rumors, the problem is due to the 64-bit version of iTunes, the alternative 32-bit version to read our Windows 8 computer but not install. Accordingly, it makes sense to iTunes 220.127.116.11 (see above) to use.
Another problem also has to do with iTunes: TaiG asserts that Apple's drivers are not installed. Here helps only a complete un-install of iTunes including all Apple system components and reinstall.
Standard Jailbreak Procedure
Does it elsewhere errors, help the usual measures, which should be carried out in any case, prior to installation. So you have to "Find My iPhone" switch off, turn off the passcode lock and the PIN code request. The support WLAN also must not be activated.
Currently the jailbreak still suffers from the fact that Cydia substrates (formerly MobileSubstrate) has not yet been ported to iOS 8.3 - and in exactly this framework is a major part of the jailbreak apps. At an adaptation of the framework, however, worked diligently. This issue should be in the next few days by itself.
[Update 06/25/15 15:06 clock:] Cydia is now in an updated version before that supports iOS 8.3 [/ Update].
Jailbreaks are no small measure. Who chooses to unlock his device, should consider that he thus potentially fetches attack surfaces in the house. So Apple warns even long before appropriate modifications - and in no uncertain terms: "An unauthorized change of iOS can lead to security vulnerabilities, instability, shortened battery life and other problems," it says on the Apple Support. In addition, the manufacturer can reject the warranty.
Accordingly it is recommended that jailbreaks not carry on production equipment - but best to use iOS hardware, which if not functional you can not bear, if necessary. In addition, one should not possible to use jailbreak devices with its main Apple ID, but best to create a separate account for this purpose.
It is also not what lies in TaiG Code. Sources do not publish the Chinese Jailbreaker - accordingly applies here: use at your own risk. The jailbreak team had previously noticed already by a controversial alternative app store.
