How to Jailbreak Your iPad Air 2, Air, 4, 3, 2, Mini Using TaiG (Windows) [iOS 8.4]

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 8.4 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 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 8.4 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 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.

Hi everyone. Especially to developers of JB app. I use Mini Ipad and I have upgraded into 8.4 IOS. I am trying to continue with steps posted here above, but each time I tried to JB, the message of Apple driver was not found is getting me trouble what to do. Does any body have any idea how to continue further?! Note: just to make clear my questions, I have downloaded the latest version of I Tunes and still I am getting the same message.

So I'm jail broken on 8.1. I usually do a clean install of the newest firmware.. Restore from backup and then jailbreak. The directions here say I can update and re jailbreak...skipping the whole restoring from backup process. Question is., does that take extra space with the previous jailbreak and tweaks being inaccessible or are they simply overridden when I re jailbreak. If being overridden will Cydia recognize tweaks previously installed or would I have to reinstall them

You will have to reinstall them

This has got to be the cr@ppiest JB I have ever seen. It jail broke my iPhone, but wouldn't my iPad. I tried dozens of fixes, and each time it listed a randomly picked error code. When 8.4 came out, I tried again. Again, nothing. Figuring the iPad was a lost cause, I tried 8.4 on my phone. No go! Now I have 2 unjail broken devices. I almost suspect Apple paid off TaiG to curtail the number of jail broken phones. I will NEVER attempt another TaiG JB!
thanks

Should have never upgraded. Jailbroke my 4s on ios 8.3 successfully but upgraded to ios 8.4 and now I am stuck in the 20% loop. I am using iTunes 12.0.1 on windows 8.1 64 bit. Is there a fix?

PO51 - July 3, 2015 at 12:21am
Note: The ios 8.3 20% fix tutorial is useless for the ios 8.4 jailbreak

Have anybody tried reinstalling iOS 8.3? Is the door still open or Apple have sealed it???
odedoo1
odedoo1 - July 2, 2015 at 9:54pm
The reason I ask is because I'm on 8.3 and would like to stay but also would like to would also like to use the new jailbreak so pretty much do it all from the beginning Clean.

Don't do it! This JB is unreliable. As far as I can tell, you've only got a 20 to 30% chance of success with each attempt.
