When Apple released iOS 8.1.2 a couple of days ago, the first fear was that it patched the Taig jailbreak. Thankfully, it didn’t and, because of that, many users have happily updated to iOS 8.1.2 and used Taig to jailbreak their devices. While most have had no problems at all with the jailbreak, a handful of users has reported getting stuck during the jailbreak. If this has happened to you, below we have a few things for you to try.

Especially if you used the OTA method to update to iOS 8.1.2. Restore through iTunes and try the jailbreak again
Disable Find my iPhone
Before you jailbreak, disable find my iPhone – Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone
Clear Some Storage Space
The Taig jailbreak needs space to get the files onto your device and if you don’t have enough free, the jailbreak tool will get stuck. You need to have at least 2-3 GB spare so move media files onto external storage and clear off any files or apps that you don’t need. You can put your media files back afterwards.
Disable Passcode and/or Touch ID
As with Find my iPhone, you need to disable your passcode – Settings > Passcode or, if enabled, Touch ID – Settings>Touch ID & Passcode
Enable Airplane Mode
Enable Airplane mode by swiping up for the control center or heading into Settings > Airplane Mode
Run the Jailbreak in Administrator Mode
When you extract the jailbreak files to your desktop, to run it, right-click the icon and choose Run as Administrator.
If you haven’t installed the jailbreak yet, we have a comprehensive tutorial for you to follow but, when you do make sure you follow the above tips BEFORE you attempt to install the jailbreak.
