The whole jailbreak community has been waiting for a new iOS jailbreak to come out, as this unjailbreakable period has been too long since the last release which seems to be decades ago. We all were told that the Pangu Team would be the one who will be coming out with a jailbreak for the iOS 8.3, while the TaiG team was to work on an iOS 9 jailbreak. But all of us were unaware that the iOS 8.3 jailbreak would come out so soon, when it was release a few days ago. But the real surprise element behind the release was that it wasn’t a Pangu Team’s release, but was the fruit of the TaiG Team’s efforts. They brought us the much awaited iOS 8.3 jailbreak in the form of the TaiG 2.0 Jailbreak Tool.

But we weren’t happy with it either. The jailbreak just wasn’t perfect. It was not complete enough to deserve the jailbreak tag. Firstly, many users were not being able to install the jailbreak, as every time they did it, they would face errors like the progress mark getting stuck at 20% or 60%. Also, the biggest drawback of the tool was that the Cydia Substrate was missing, which is the backbone for Cydia. This meant that we could not install most of the jailbreak tweaks and apps, and the jailbreak community was really left unimpressed. But the tool itself was a proof that iOS 8.3 was jailbreakable, so all the eyes were set upon the Cydia Developer Saurik and the TaiG Team and they were expected to roll out the fix soon.
TaiG 2.1.3 Fixes Most Errors during iOS 8.3 Jailbreak:
Sure enough, the TaiG Team is a really powerful and talented group of hackers, as they have listened to the pleas of the community very fast and have just released the newer version of the their tool, called the TaiG 2.1.3. While TaiG 2.1.2 managed to fix the Cydia Substrate issue and a few other fixes, the version 2.1.3 of the TaiG tool provides the fixes for issues like the UI Cache bug which caused the app icons on iOS 8.3 to suddenly disappear on iOS 8.3 (Saurik fixed it). Other errors like the tool getting stuck at the 20% progress mark, the errors in the tool on virtual machines, the prolonged start-up time that iPhone 4S users have reported.
TaiG 2.1.3 Changes :
- Fixed the error of progress getting stuck at 20% during installation.
- Cydia updated to the latest version 1.1.18 [ext link].
- UIKitTools updated to the latest version 188.8.131.52
- Fixed the missing icon error after jailbreak
- Fixed the long start-up time in iPhone 4S after the jailbreak
- Fixed the error of the TaiG tool not working on virtual machines.
The TaiG Team claimed that the error of getting stuck at 20% had been already fixed in the TaiG 2.1.2 version, but many users still were experiencing the issue again and again. So if you are having problems with the TaiG 2.0 or TaiG 2.1.2, then you should try the TaiG 2.1.3 jailbreak tool to jailbreak your iOS 8.3 device.
You do not need to install the jailbreak again on your device in case you have already jailbroken using the previous versions of the tool, as the TaiG Team has now released an update for the TaiG 8.1.3 tool, which is an untethered package. You need to add TaiG’s repo given below to your Cydia sources to get the update. Instructions to add it given here .
You can install this package without re-jailbreaking to upgrade your iOS device manually to TaiG 2.1.3 from the previous versions of the jailbreak.
