iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak news: after official update rolls out, Apple advises consumers against using fake Evasion iOS 8.4.1


As Apple released the official update of the Apple iOS 8.4.1 which addressed fixes and updates on the software, it seems less likely that Chinese Jailbreaking groups TaiG and PP will be releasing their versions of the jailbreak.

Based on an IBTimes report, the new release addresses issues in Apple Music, particularly problems in turning on the iCloud Music Library; issues with hiding added music; problems in adding songs to a new playlist if there are no playlists available as well as issues showing different artworks for album covers across devices.

The new release also addresses issues for artists while posting to connect. It also includes a fix on the issue where tapping Love does not work while listening to Beats 1.

The report however, said that for those who have already used the TaiG jailbreak, it is not advisable to use the update. 

While it was initially reported that TaiG may have been working on their jailbreak even before the Apple release based on the group’s post on Twitter, it seems the group is now moving on to focus on the iOS 9 firmware, reported Scribbal.

Meanwhile, Apple users are being warned against downloading a fake Evasi0n iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak which recently surfaced online.

The download link to the Evasion iOS 8.4.1 was originally released by iOS jailbreak, which could reportedly support iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini, iPad Mini 2, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPod Touch 5g, iPod Touch 6g.

However, a report by the International Business Times has cautioned avid jailbreakers against downloading the jailbreak and advised to instead wait for the official version to be released by the Evasion Dream Team.
