How to Un-Jailbreak TaiG

Back in November 2014, Taig released their untethered jailbreak utility for iOS 8.1.1, following it up a short while later with one for iOS 8.1.2.  At the time, Taig were an unknown quantity; the previous jailbreak had been supplied by a team called Pangu and, since Apple patched their jailbreak, nobody expected another one to be released until iOS 8.2, which is due for release any day now.

Because Taig were unknowns, their jailbreak was put through its paces by a number of high-profile developers and was subsequently declared to be clean and highly stable. Indeed, unlike jailbreaks in the past, fewer people experienced problems with the Taig jailbreak and, of those who did, it was mostly through a failure to follow the jailbreak instructions properly.  The biggest issue with the jailbreak was that it was only released for Windows users; Mac owners still had to go through a fiddly process of installing a virtual PC so that they could use the jailbreak.

If you are still running iOS 8.1.1 or 8.1.2, you can still install Taig, full instructions and download links below:

If you already have the Taig jailbreak and, for some reason, you want to remove it from your iPhone, there are two ways to do it.

How to Remove Taig Jailbreak :

Update your iPhone :

The first way is, quite simply, to update to iOS 8.1.3.  You can do this by going to Settings > General > Software Update and following the on-screen instructions to update your iPhone to the latest firmware. ota ios 9software update ios 8

  2. Connect your iPhone to your computer or Mac
  3. Back up your data itunes backup ios 9
  4. Press SHIFT (Windows) or OPTION (Mac) and click on Restore in iTunes at the same time itunes restore

  6. Agree to the Restore and iTunes will restore your iPhone to iOS 8.1.3 restore in progress
  7. Your iPhone will reboot to iOS 8.1.3 and the jailbreak will be gone, along with your jailbreak tweaks.

Please be aware that there is no jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 at this stage and there isn’t likely to be another one until iOS 8.2 at the very earliest. Tell us if you decided to remove the jailbreak and why.

  1. I have a grey bar when I try to jailbreak instead of a green bar. I cannot jailbreak the iPhone 5. The reason why I’m trying to jailbreak is because I don’t have the cydia app and yet I still can use all the tweaks that I downloaded on cydia.

  2. i jailbroke my device about 6 months ago and have scowered the blogasphere to figure out how to restore my device to its pre jailbreak condition and functionality and haven’t been able to find any assistance at all. I started posting requests over a month ago and have made at least 15 requests at as many different forums and haven’t received a single response.

    I successfully jailbroke my divice, then accidently deleted cydia. This is a company owned divice, and has to be turned back in for mandantory security app upgrades and installations. I have been stalling to try to find a way to restore it. if they find i have jailbroken it it could mena my job. I have tried connecting it to itunes and doing the DFU restore, and all simular methods, going through device menue to restore to factory defaults, reinstalling the pangu jailbreak then restoreing. none of it works. the device is still fully functional as of its state at the time of jailbreak, but no apps can be installed or upgraded, and the ios over air upgrade cant be done. can someone please instruct some method that might work. Im desperate and running out of time.

    1. Try updating the device to iOS 9, then downgrading back to whatever version you were using before, worked for me when I had iOS 7 jailbreak.
