There is an issue where the TaiG jailbreak of iOS 8.3 can get stuck at 20%.

If you've waited for a while and/or you receive an error -1101, you may have to follow these steps.

To resolve this issue you must install iTunes 12.0.1. We would suggest that you cleanly remove the current version of iTunes on your PC. You can do this by following these steps.

Reboot, then download and install iTunes 12.0.1 from here.

Once you've installed iTunes 12.0.1 be sure not to update it when prompted, then run TaiG as instructed here.

If you have any questions please ask them in the comments. You may follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for further updates.

I used the same jailbreak (TaiG) for iOS 7 and ran into the "getting stuck" part. I'm not sure if the iOS 8 jailbreak is similar in any way, but I found that when I set my Parallels virtual windows machine to 2 CPUs instead of one (quad core system) it powered right through the jailbreak without an issue. Everything prior to that, using older iTunes versions, etc., didn't help get me past the sticking point. As an FYI, I also had the USB connection directly connected to the virtual machine and not the virtualized USB. More advanced Parallels users probably know what I'm referring to.

I upgraded and jail broke my iPhone with no problems (aside from waiting forever at 60%). However, my iPad didn't do as well. Instead of getting stuck at 20%, the jb would sit at 60% for 2+ hours before failing. I followed the advice about trying again (uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes) and now the jail break can no longer "See" the iTunes driver, despite my having no troubles using iTunes. So now I've got an unjailbreakable iPad. I'm paranoid that upgrading iTunes may prevent me from upgrading my phone too. Like most of the JBs by TaiG, they aren't very good at debugging their tools. This JB tool should NEVER have been released until it was properly debugged. Even worse, when I tried on subsequent attempts, I got 5 different error codes, some claiming things which just weren't true. Use at your own risk.
