These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s on iOS 8.1.3 - 8.4 using TaiG for Windows.

If you aren't already at iOS 8.4 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.4 here. We've also posted instructions on how to update the firmware of your iPhone. 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 8.4 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 Two
Tap Settings from your Springboard then select Touch ID & Passcode. Turn Passcode Off if it is enabled.

Step Four
Connect your iPhone 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.

As o many others the first mesage I got from Taig 2.4.1 was: Apple driver not found, install iTunes. This is by far the worst jaibreak ever, and I have been jaibreaking since iOS 2.1! I hope the next jailbreak is from Evasion again: smooth and no idiotic downgrades of iTunes or countless beta versions of the tool itself. I remembered I had an older versio of iTunes on my laptop which did the trick. My question: is it so hard to put a workaround wthin the jailbreak to avoid all the frustrations this time? Understand me correctly: I am happy to have my jailbreak, and apreciat the work the Taig team put into it, but MUST it be SO sloppy? This was the first time I actually thought about wating for iOS 9 WITH A(HOPEFULLY) better jaibreak... Anyway, it succeeded, so thank you Taig.

THANK YOU TaiG team!! It worked for me, after I downgraded iTunes and all apple services to 12.0.1. (google "How to Downgrade iTunes 12.1.2 to 12.0.1" and watch the YouTube video). Further I had to temporarily disable my Virus protection services for TaiG to connect to the network. I enabled it right after connection and it worked fine from there with my iPhone 5.

I have installed the latest version of the itunes. When the procedure for jailbreak (TaiG V.2430) starts i am getting the message "Apple driver hasn't been found. Please download and install itunes" What am i doing wrong?

my jailbreak went fine, but the next step has you enter your "baseband" version, and mine is 5.5.00 which isn't listed.
jackh
jackh - July 18, 2015 at 1:54am
and if I select the 5.4.00, just to move forward, the next step has you enter your firmware, and again 8.4 is not listed for this step.

Stuck at 60%... what should I do ? I don't want to clean restore my iPhone 4s, it doesn't have a working WiFi and a couple apps doesn't backup data without WiFi. So If I clean restore the iOS, I'll lose data :(

Got stuck during JB for my iPhone 4S few times. After trying the following steps prior to the JB, it finally succeeded: * Disable Anti-Virus * Close iTunes * Set Auto-Lock on phone to 'Never' (Settings -> General -> Auto-Lock) * Slide to unlock phone and leave on home screen Hope this helps someone out.
thank you

what is always not clear/missing in these tutorials? The 2 possible sequences and related pros/cons: 1) backup, firmware update, restore backup, jailbreak; 2) backup, firmware update, jailbreak, restore backup.
alantoo
alantoo - July 4, 2015 at 6:21pm
I agree. What is recommended steps for backing up and restoring a backup in the entire jailbreak process? Is it even recommended to do at all or just set up as new iPhone everytime I update and jailbreak?

I was getting to 60% and it would fail, error code 1105, says it could be antivirus. Went to windows defender and turned it off and everything worked. Hope this helps some of you

No, you didn't try everything, and no, you don't have to restore at all. First, uninstall iTunes. Then go to Control Panel - and uninstall apple drivers, then download ITunes from the link on TaiGJ (it's Chinese but you should find your way to download it) and install it. You will be fine after that ;)

Does the Windows machine we run the TaiG jailbreak tool on need to have iTunes and be the machine we synch with? Can we just install it for the sole purpose of jailbreaking our devices?
