Back in November 2014, Taig released their untethered jailbreak utility for iOS 8.1.1, following it up a short while later with one for iOS 8.1.2. At the time, Taig were an unknown quantity; the previous jailbreak had been supplied by a team called Pangu and, since Apple patched their jailbreak, nobody expected another one to be released until iOS 8.2, which is due for release any day now.

Because Taig were unknowns, their jailbreak was put through its paces by a number of high-profile developers and was subsequently declared to be clean and highly stable. Indeed, unlike jailbreaks in the past, fewer people experienced problems with the Taig jailbreak and, of those who did, it was mostly through a failure to follow the jailbreak instructions properly. The biggest issue with the jailbreak was that it was only released for Windows users; Mac owners still had to go through a fiddly process of installing a virtual PC so that they could use the jailbreak.
If you are still running iOS 8.1.1 or 8.1.2, you can still install Taig, full instructions and download links below:
If you already have the Taig jailbreak and, for some reason, you want to remove it from your iPhone, there are two ways to do it.
How to Remove Taig Jailbreak :
Update your iPhone :
The first way is, quite simply, to update to iOS 8.1.3. You can do this by going to Settings > General > Software Update and following the on-screen instructions to update your iPhone to the latest firmware.
Restore your iPhone :
If you are intending to jailbreak in the future or have a smaller capacity device, you can use the iTunes Restore method:
- Download iOS 9 [ext link] or later
- Connect your iPhone to your computer or Mac
- Back up your data
- Press SHIFT (Windows) or OPTION (Mac) and click on Restore in iTunes at the same time
- Find the IPSW on your computer and click it
- Agree to the Restore and iTunes will restore your iPhone to iOS 8.1.3
- Your iPhone will reboot to iOS 8.1.3 and the jailbreak will be gone, along with your jailbreak tweaks.
Please be aware that there is no jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 at this stage and there isn’t likely to be another one until iOS 8.2 at the very earliest. Tell us if you decided to remove the jailbreak and why.
