Fix TaiG Error – Apple Driver Hasn’t Been Found

The TaiG team is really proving to be a very talented hacking team with its jailbreaking activities that it did recently. TaiG was the first to bring in the much-needed jailbreak for iOS 8.3 with its TaiG 2.0. But it did not go well with the users as the tool was giving many installation errors to the users. Some were getting stuck at 20% progress while others were experiencing other critical issues. Apart from these errors, there were a lot of other drawbacks in the jailbreak, such as not being able to install many jailbreak tweaks due to unavailability of Cydia Substrate. TaiG promptly got to work and brought the final 2.1.3 version to the users which resolved all the problems and became a fully-functional iOS 8.3 jailbreak.

    1. Download iTunes version 12.2.2 (for old video cards)

      You don’t need to uninstall iTunes if you already have it. Just run this version on top. When you run this version it will automatically replace it with the iTunes that you have on your computer. Nothing will be deleted, all your backups will still stay on your computer. After you have installed this try running TaiG again.

      Watch this to see how it works:
