Black Screen after Jailbreak Fix

Just a few days ago, Apple released iOS 8.1.2 but, to the relief of the jailbreak community, it did not patch the Taig jailbreak. Taig followed the release with an update to their utility, allowing users to update and jailbreak with the latest bug fixes from Apple. While it is stable, there are a few users who have found their iOS devices stuck on a black screen.  There are a number of things you can try but not all of them work. The following tips do work and will get you out of trouble:

If you want to go back to an earlier firmware, the only one you can go to is iOS 8.1.1

  1. Download the iOS 8.1.1 IPSW [ext link]
  2. Connect your device to your computer and follow the steps above to put your device into DFU
  3. Don’t release the Home button until the iTunes connection screen appears on your iOS device
