Until now, the PP team was the only one to release a jailbreak tool for Mac, so we had just the PP iOS 8.4 Jailbreak Tool for Mac OS X at our hands. Meanwhile, the TaiG iOS 8.4 Jailbreak Tool for Windows caused hassles for the Mac users who had to go through Windows Emulators to jailbreak their devices. But looks like the prayers of the TaiG fans have been heard and the TaiG team has at last released the TaiG iOS Jailbreak Tool for Mac OS X [How to Tutorial] . You can download the tool from this link and the tutorial for Jailbreaking iOS 8.4 With TaiG Tool for Mac OS X is also available.

However, many users are reportedly having an issue with the tool. They are not being able to launch the TaiG tool on Mac. No, it is not due to a bug, but it is actually caused by a safety feature incorporated in Mac. Mac OX, by default, prevents you from opening applications that are from unidentified developers or sources. So when you launch the TaiG Mac tool, a message will come up alerting you that the application is not from a verified source or the Mac App Store. The message looks like this exactly [image above] :
Taig.app can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.
The security feature causing this hindrance is called GateKeeper [Apple.com]. It does not prevent you permanently from opening such unidentified apps; you can turn this feature off to successfully run the required application, the TaiG tool for Mac in this case.
Temporary Solution to the TaiG Can’t Be Opened Error :
If you want to keep the GateKeeper feature running and still want to use the TaiG tool, then do the following:
- Right-click or control-click on the icon of the Taig tool and click on Open.
- Next, click the Open button once again in the alert box that pops up. This will open the TaiG tool finally.
In case you are a regular jailbreaker and want to turn GateKeeper off completely, use the below-given permanent solution.
Permanent Solution for the TaiG Can’t Be Opened Error :
Advanced users who like to play with unidentified apps from unknown sources and do jailbreaking almost everyday can use this option safely, as they know which app they should trust and which not. If you are a normal user and do not jailbreak everyday, then you should follow the temporary solution only.
The Unidentified App Developer Prevention in GateKeeper can be switched off permanently and thus you can open the TaiG tool directly without any alert messages.
- Browse to the Apple Menu and open the System Preferences.
- Now click on Security & Privacy and select General.
- Next, click the Lock icon that is given in the corner; it will unlock the settings.
- A menu will show up; choose the option named “Anywhere“, which is given under the section named “Allow Applications Downloaded From”.
- Just allow and accept the warning that comes up.
- You can now launch any app from any source or developer, including the TaiG jailbreak tool.
