In a surprise move, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 has been released. Not by Pangu or Evad3rs this time but by a team called Taig. Taig is a name that is synonymous with piracy and many users were dismayed to find the Taig app store downloaded onto their devices after using the Evasi0n 7 jailbreak in 2013.

Evad3rs confirmed that they had agreed to the inclusion provided there were no pirate apps included. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out and the store was withdrawn almost straightaway.
Is it Safe Jailbreak :
The question now is whether this jailbreak is safe to use. It has been thoroughly put to the test and has been reported as working well but it is only available in the Chinese language. That means, if you are not careful when you download the utility, you will end up with the Taig store on your iOS device but if you follow our guidelines, you can avoid this.
The jailbreak also reportedly covers iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 but, as that remains untested, you are better off staying with Pangu if you haven’t updated to iOS 8.1.1 yet and, if you are using iOS 8 beta 2, also supported, you may find that the jailbreak is not too stable.
TaiG Jailbreak Legal ?
The next question is whether Taig is a legal jailbreak. Well, it is a working jailbreak and, as jailbreaking was given exemption from the DMCA Act in 2010, it is a legal jailbreak. It is not a breach of copyright laws, it is merely a way for users to get access to third-party apps but, although there is little Apple can do about this, be aware that they will void your warranty if they find out you have used the jailbreak.
