A popular jailbreak developer group for iOS devices has assured users that the tweaks and exploits in its previous iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool will still be compatible with Apple’s new firmware update for its iOS 8 devices.
After the release of iOS 8.4 by Apple in June 30, the Master Herald reported, TaiG confirmed that the exploits that were developed in the jailbreak for iOS 8.3 will be compatible with the new firmware update that the Cupertino tech giant has recently released for mobile devices running its iOS operating system.
As a result, the report said, there were many users who have decided to take on the over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates to replace the OS on their jailbreaked devices to iOS 8.4.
However, there were also users that were unsure of what will happen to their tweaks and apps after they take on Apple’s OTA updates.
This prompted TaiG to release an untethered jailbreak update for iOS 8.4 also on June 30, the International Business Times UK reported.
TaiG then announced that users can go ahead with either the iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4 jailbreaks as most apps and tweaks have been tested to be fully compatible.
In the same report, the IB Times also released a consolidated list of working tweaks for Cydia that are compatible with the iOS 8.4 jailbreak to address concerns from iPhone owners who are apprehensive of what will happen to their jailbreaks in Cydia.
The iOS 8.3 jailbreak from Taig have been reported to have run into errors when jailbreaking devices in Cydia. According to iDigital Times, users who utilized Cydia to install the iOS 8.3 jailbreak experienced errors when the installation reaches 20%, and then when the process hits 60%.
The 20% error was then addressed by installing an older version of iTunes into the device, but the 60% error remained unresolved until TaiG released version 2.1.3 of their iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool on Monday.
