These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s on iOS 8.0 - 8.1.1 using TaiG for Windows...

If you aren't already at iOS 8.1.1 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.1.1 here. We've also posted instructions on how to update the firmware of your iPhone. Please note that you must update using iTunes rather than Software Update. If you used Software Update you should do a backup then restore to iOS 8.1.1 using iTunes.

Step One
Create an iClarified folder on your desktop and download the latest version of TaiG into the folder. If your download is a zip file then extract the archive into the same folder.

Step Two
Tap Settings from your Springboard then select Touch ID & Passcode. Turn Passcode Off if it is enabled.

Step Five
Double click the TaiGJBreak executable from the iClarified folder on your desktop to launch the application.

after the jailbreak is done can you do a backup to the phone to restore your contacts without it ruining the jailbreak?

Thanks Ensik Mango everything working like a charm on my iphone gsm 5 the main reason to upgrade to 8.1.1 was that viber and gmail had crashing issues on 8 now all is well

Even when you take your iPhone to the Apple Store they now ask you to disable find my iphone and passcode lock in case something goes wrong it could create a boot loop. If you're that paranoid just don't jailbreak in the first place.

That's bascially saying that there's an update to the jailbreak so download the updated version of Taig 1.0.1 for it to work

True, that! I, don't know a s..t in Chinese. Had the same problem as the guy above. But, used Google Translate with www.taig.com and downloaded the 1.0.1 version. Worked smoothly! Did not know, that 1.0.0 (thru taig_1006.zip) app was suggesting me to download the latest version. It was not detecting my phone at all. But, version 1.0.1 (thru taig_1010.zip) detected the phone right away and with no issue jailbreaking it. All the best.

Yes, I figured it up later and it worked then. Wonderful. Do you know which AppSync to use for this version, I downloaded Navigon Europé from AppCake(becuse vShare crashes on startup) but could not install it?
