TaiG has officially released an updated version of its iOS 8.3 jailbreak utility that brings a fix for Cydia Substrate. A version of the utility was leaked yesterday when a redditor found what was likely a test release on TaiG's server.

The new 2.1.2 version of the utility can be downloaded from here.

Official Changelog:
● Fixes problems of getting stuck at 20% and 60%, and adaptate for latest iTunes.
● Compatible with Cydia Substrate(Mobile Substrate).
● Corrects the blank Settings problem while matching Apple Watch with iDevice.
● Fix issues of UIcache.

You can find instructions on how to jailbreak your device in the tutorials linked below. At this point in time, the jailbreak utility has only been released for Windows.

How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s Using TaiG (Windows) [iOS 8.3]
How to Jailbreak Your iPad Air 2, Air, 4, 3, 2, Mini Using TaiG (Windows) [iOS 8.3]
How to Jailbreak Your iPod Touch 5G Using TaiG (Windows) [iOS 8.3]

TaiG has also released an updated untether in Cydia so users who have already jailbroken do not need to rejailbreak.

I had the same problem with my parallel on my Mac . I was able to jailbreak my phone by right clicking on the parallels icon at the buttom of my mac, this brought up the windows icon, I then right clicked on the windows icon at the buttom of my mac , then view, then show windows desktop. This enabled me to open Taig and installed the hail break with no problems . Also if you are stuck on 60% , backup your phone on iTunes and restore . Do not install your backup after restore . Open Taig and the problem is solved . After installing Cydia, re-install your apps using iTunes . Hope this helps

So what do you choose after you do a iOS restored? Setup as New Restore iCloud or Restore from iTunes Backup? If not Setup as new then it automatically get to which ever. And I thought if I set it up as new I can't restore from a previous backup since it thinks its a new device? I am wrong? Thanks

And so it continues: I have restored my device to 8.3. Removed ALL Apple related software as well downgraded iTunes to 12.0.1 and I am stuck at 20% with Taig I tried it with airplane on and off, wifi on and off, changed USB's from front to back of my PC. Of course I have passcode andFind My iPhone disabled. I have a 32bit PC with Windows 8.1 on it as well a iMAC with Parallel Windows 10 Tech Preview and on both 20% is sits. Well not exactly sits it continually reboots itself.

3 days and counting, tried everything, still stuck at 40%, so close yet so far. For those who have been successful, congrats!

Is anyone else getting the following error when starting the 2.1.2 version: "Network anomalies. Version verification failed" Also of note, http://www.taig.com is not responding (at least to my computer). Thoughts

Replying to myself with a solution to my problem: It was my network setup that was somehow blocking access to taig.com. Meh, it's free wifi so I can't complain. Solution: In order to get the jailbreak app to work, I enabled the personal hotspot on my 5C and connected my Windows 7 PC to that. That got me past the version check (or whatever) and I was able to complete the process.

When I open TaiG, the screen on TaiG says "Apple driver has not been found'. What should I do? There is no button for jailbreak. Any ideas????

Where is the Mac version.. Don't they sell macs in China ? Therr made there
n0m0n - June 26, 2015 at 10:24pm
Well I hav been trying to jb my iPh6 for 3 days now... Tried multiple PC's, OS's, downgraded iTunes, deleted all Apple software. Tried everything WIFI on WIFI off, tried via Taig 2000, 2120 and so on and it sat at 20%. I finally gave in and wiped it and then restored it via iTunes. So now its been restoring my stuff from the cloud for 6 hours and still isn't done. Can anyone tell me if the icon restore doesn't work is there a way to get my apps installed without having to install them 1 by 1? My hope is that app my apps would be installed via the cloud but this is taking way to long. After the restore I will try again to jb with 2.12 even though Im starting to wonder if its worth it. Thanks

Backup to your Mac/pc, not iCloud, then restore from that

Finally got it working on my third pc running win 8.1 and older verion of itunes. Did not work on pc with win 7 or xp.

JB works 100% (ipad3 iOS 8.3), however most of my favourite cydia tweaks are not updated for 8.3 yet (like ifile, batterydoctor pro, winterboard themes, etc)
NoGoodNick - June 26, 2015 at 2:55pm
Still doesn't work. I've been stuck for 2 hours at 60%. I've run it every way imaginable, deleted and reinstalled EVERY Apple program multiple times. NOTHING works. TaiG is NOT a very professional team, as they won't debug ANYTHING they develop, leaving it for users to test their software for them. I recommend waiting until 8.4 before anyone jailbreaks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, even on the same machine and following the identical steps.
