Taig Stuck at 30%

When Apple released iOS 8.1.2 a couple of days ago, the first fear was that it patched the Taig jailbreak. Thankfully, it didn’t and, because of that, many users have happily updated to iOS 8.1.2 and used Taig to jailbreak their devices. While most have had no problems at all with the jailbreak, a handful of users has reported getting stuck during the jailbreak. If this has happened to you, below we have a few things for you to try.

Fresh Restore

Especially if you used the OTA method to update to iOS 8.1.2. Restore through iTunes and try the jailbreak again

Disable Find my iPhone

Before you jailbreak, disable find my iPhone – Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone

Clear Some Storage Space

The Taig jailbreak needs space to get the files onto your device and if you don’t have enough free, the jailbreak tool will get stuck. You need to have at least 2-3 GB spare so move media files onto external storage and clear off any files or apps that you don’t need. You can put your media files back afterwards. wechat_delete

Disable Passcode and/or Touch ID

As with Find my iPhone, you need to disable your passcode – Settings > Passcode or, if enabled, Touch ID – Settings>Touch ID & Passcode touch id passcode iphone 6 ios 8

Enable Airplane Mode

Enable Airplane mode by swiping up for the control center or heading into Settings > Airplane Mode airplane mode 2

Run the Jailbreak in Administrator Mode

When you extract the jailbreak files to your desktop, to run it, right-click the icon and choose Run as Administrator. taig administrator mode

  1. I follow all the above instructions but still stuck at 30% on iPhone 6 iOS 8.1.1.I use window 8 pro version.Is this tool can’t work on window 8?

  2. I had this problem but found I wasn’t being patient enough. It stuck on 30% for about 15 minutes, then went to 40% for another 15 minutes, but eventually came up with the goods. Don’t be too hasty guys!

    1. I couldn’t agree more about gtraierics. I miss sitting with some of the elderly individuals I used to help and they would tell me stories for hours about the things that they witness when they were younger, and the lives that they lived up to the point that they needed care. I have always felt that the elderly know how to live their lives better than anyone, and they for sure never take it for granted! Sometimes the people taking care of them are not good people though, and it always breaks my heart to see someone talking badly to an elderly man or woman.I like how you made a switch from little tiny babies that have no real experience with life, to elderly men and women who have lived life to its fullest and still have more life to share with others. Such opposites!

  3. If someone still has this problem, than try to delate you “find my Iphone” app, not delate this setting, and also do not select this 3K assistant. I had this problem, but now I easily did jeilbrek.

    1. i had the same problem to

  4. i had the same problem to
    i open itunes first and kept it run during jailbreak process and i enabled airplane mode it worked perfectly to me
    wish it will be a user to u guys tooooooo

  5. Just freed about 2Gb of memory on device and it worked fine for my iPad 2 and Windows 7 32 bit! Just free some space on your device guys!

  6. I had to create 2.6G of free space before the jailbreak would go past the 30% point. After that, it installed quickly with no further issues. I tried with 2.2G and it would not go. I also switched to a high-speed USB port on my computer which may have helped things as well. Just my experience.
