These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini Retina, and iPad mini on iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.3 using TaiG for Windows.

If you aren't already at iOS 8.3 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.3 here. We've also posted instructions on how to update the firmware of your iOS device. 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 8.3 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 Four
Connect your iPad to the computer via a USB cable, launch iTunes, and perform a manual backup. It is very important that you remember to backup your device before continuing as you could lose your data if the jailbreak process does not complete successfully.

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

The same issue with all their other JBs. I reach 60% and it freezes. The only difference in this version is I didn't have to wait 2+ hours for the JB tool to recover. What's more, the error codes are completely random, as each time I run in (after uninstalling and reinstalling every piece of software) I get a different error code, including ones that are clearly false.
