Just talked to TaiG, jailbreak coming soon!

Either way hope someone releases it, now that they're working on 8.4 beta, there's no reason they're holding back the jb. And afaik TaiG/pangu are the only jailbreaks available. If they stole it from someone else or not I don't know, all I know is that they've come through for me and my jail breaking needs, so I give them thumbs up for releasing it and being able to jailbreak my fone. Thank you.

I am so excited from Apple iOS 8.4.

Yes. I can't wait to see how simpler the new music app can get, but I do hope it also has the function to delete songs that were never purchased and automatically downloaded.

Because the new music app is probably starting from scratch.
