It works great on the jailbreak part, however you can not Add Sources or if you download the existing app it won't works. For example I DL candy crusher, after I configured in setting still can't make it works on candy crush app..

Look people, I had problems on PC and windows 8.1. I didn't want to downgrade iTunes, so I tried on laptop with win 7 ultimate 64 bit and iTunes 12.1.0. That worked on ipads (mini, ipad 2, ipad 3) and iphone 6+ without any glitches. So, big thanks to Taig team and Saurik (Cydia) for making this even possible, It might be the last jailbreak ever or not. For sure I cannot do it myself, so I depend on people from Taig, dev Sauirik, etc. Big thanks to them and I hope people appreciate more what they are doing for the rest of us. I know it is very frustrating when you stuck on 20% for few days but that is the name of the game. Good luck to all of you who didn't managed to JB it yet, but you will eventually. Don't lose the hope.

The Jb community is now sleeping for iOS 8.x.. You jailbreak your device and realize that 1% of your tweaks works.

days are passing, and we're still waiting a mac tool (again, since it looks like it's a taig custom). this is just so stupid.. if you can code a jailbreak exploit, coding an utility for mac too is a trivial joke, and the fact it's still missing is a matter of will and nothing more. missing the old jb scene so much, when people used to put out jailbreak tools after some testing, not having it randomly stuck at 20%, after having a really working tool, and, universally independent by OS. do they think to hit apple leaving their OS out? ridiculous while i'm still unsure about how the exploit came out (i0nic has a lot to say, but that happens almost daily), my think at the moment is: taig team, still A LOT to learn. A LOT. needing for a ppjailbreak tool again.. what a pain

Does 2.1.3 work with current iTunes or is downgrade still necessary? What is the TaiG App Store?

Works for me like a champ on my Win 8.1 64Bits. After I downgrade to iTunes 12.1.0 no more stuck on 20 or 60% also Apple drive not found message it's all gone. Thanks TaiG Jailbreak for the awesome job.

Another bit of flakiness. Whenever I start my newly jailbroken phone, it's stuck in landscape mode until I sign in, which makes using the phone app on the login useless. As I said, the TaiG team is great for rushing products to market, but terrible about debugging their products.
NoGoodNick - June 28, 2015 at 5:53pm
I'll believe it when I see it. My iPhone jailbroke with no trouble. My iPad, wouldn't jailbreak for anything. I tried mutliple times, removing every single Apple product and reinstalling them multiple times. Each one gets stuck (for hours) at 60%. Version 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 were supposed to fix this sloppy coding, but didn't work worth diddly. I'm not expecting 2.1.3 to work any better. Bad programming is bad programming, and it appears that the TaiG jailbreak was I never debugged. I've never had much faith in TaiG jailbreak, as their claim to fame is releasing JBs before they're ready, simply in order to beat out the more serious jailbreakers who put in the necessary amount of work.

im still stuck at 60% does any1 have a fix for this ?

Its still not working properly. Shows "apple drivers hasnt been found " error

You have to downgrade iTunes to 12.1
NoGoodNick - June 28, 2015 at 5:57pm
Tried it (downgrading to iTunes 12.1. Didn't work. Tried it with every version of iTunes I could find, No difference. If it works for you, that's fine, but don't tell me a solution if you never had a problem yourself. My iPhone jailbroke fine, but suddenly my iPad needs a DIFFERENT version of iTunes? I think not.

Try removing the Apple USB and Apple Restore USB drivers and then installing iTunes again. Maybe there's something wrong with your drivers. Also, make sure you use the original Apple USB cable for your phone. 3rd party cables have been known to have problems.

Is updating from 8.1.2 to 8.3 worth it?
Anonymous - June 28, 2015 at 5:02pm

ywhat - June 28, 2015 at 8:12pm
Based on the above issues....im staying on 8.1.2 with Retroarch working lol
JollySonX - June 29, 2015 at 6:45pm
I updated (from 8.1.1) and jail broke my 6 on Friday night not had an issue with it, i wanted 8.3 for the calls over wifi and apple watch app as I picked my watch up on Sunday. Only reason I've held off doing my iPad is because I'm a lazy git lol, I've installed 4 tweaks/apps and they all work fine :)
