When iOS 8.1.1 was released, it patched up three of the security exploits used by Pangu to jailbreak iOS 8, leaving many people without a jailbreak. A new team called Taig came to the rescue with a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 and have since updated their utility to support iOS 8.1.2, released just a few days ago. Taig is one of the most stable jailbreak releases ever but some users are still experiencing a problem with their devices freezing on the Apple logo screen. Most likely, this is because they updated to iOS 8.1.2 using OTA instead of iTunes. There are two ways to get out of this .

Before you installed the jailbreak, you should have taken a backup of your data. If you didn’t, unfortunately this will cause you to lose everything since your last backup. Your iPhone, iPad or iPod needs to go into DFU mode:
- Connect your device to your PC or Mac and open iTunes
- Turn off your iOS device completely
- Hold the Power and Home buttons down together for 10 seconds
- Release the power button but continue holding the Home button until the device in recovery message appears in iTunes
- Click on RESTORE and iTunes will restore your device to factory settings, leaving you free to recover your files from your backup and reinstall the Taig jailbreak
- Download the iOS 8.1.2 or 8.1.1 IPSW, whichever one you want to go to
- Follow the steps above but don’t release the Home button until you see the iTunes connection logo on your device screen
- Hold the SHIFT or OPTION key, click RESTORE in iTunes and your device will be restored to your chosen firmware.
