The TaiG jailbreak team and Jay Freeman, developer of Cydia and many other projects, have developed an untethered jailbreak for all devices running iOS 8.1.3 to 8.3 available for all from their home website TAIG. I’ve followed this jailbreak for a few days and now it’s finally released, previously the 2.0 version had an incompatible file, Cydia Substrate that required to be fixed through a kernel patch.

JAILBREAKY.COM RYAN’S GUIDE FOR JB ERRORS @thejailbreaky

As with every new jailbreak, there are bound to be a few bugs that need to be worked out. With the release of TaiG’s iOS 8.3 jailbreak, there are a few bugs that have arisen and the community has rallied together to find solutions for them. Here are a few of the most common errors and how to fix them!

Error ‘Apple Driver hasn’t been found’

  • This error usually occurs on 64-bit versions of Windows. To fix this, install iTunesDriver64_0205.exe from here and try again!

Error 1101 (Getting Stuck at 20%)

  • To fix this error you have to downgrade your version of iTunes to iTunes 12.1.
  • DELETE iTunes, Apple Software Update, Bonjour, Apple Mobile Device Support (All 3)
  • For 32-bit Windows, download iTunes 12.1 from here.
  • For 64-bit Windows, download iTunes 12.1 from here.

Error 1102

  • If you get this error, try to turn on Airplane Mode. If it still persists, try to remove your TouchID and Passcode Lock.

Fix Error 1103

  • The jailbreak tool download file may be corrupt, redownload the tool and try again!

Error 1104 (Getting Stuck at 30% or 40%)

  • This error is usually caused by bad USB port. Try another port, and if this does not work then try another Windows computer.

Error 1105 (Getting Stuck at 50%)

  • If you get this error, your antivirus or firewall may be interfering with the jailbreak process. Simply turn off either of these and re-enable them when the jailbreak is complete. If this does not work, turn off Find My iPhone.

Error ‘Fix Injecting’ (Getting Stuck at 60%)

  • To attempt to fix this error, reboot both your iOS device and the Windows computer. Then, run the TaiG 2.0 “.exe” file as an Administrator by right clicking the file and selecting “Run as Administrator”

Error “Storage Almost Full”

  • This is a common problem after jailbreaking. Just open Cydia and allow it to set itself up and the problem will go away!

Error ‘Jailbreak failed!’

  • Turn off Wi-Fi on the device and try again.

Settings.app keeps crashing

  • This usually happens when you have an Apple Watch paired to your iPhone. The fix is to simply unfair your Apple Watch and re-pair it to the device. To do this, go to the Apple Watch application, select “Apple Watch” and then select “Unpair Apple Watch.” Do remember that you will lose all data on the Apple Watch when you do this.

Apps will not Download/Update from the App Store

  • To fix this issue, go to the App Store and select Updates > Purchases. From here, you will be asked to enter your iCloud password, even if you were already logged in. Enter your password and then confirm it. Any errors when downloading or updating apps should now be resolved!

Hopefully this small guide will cover all of the current and most commons problems that users are having with the TaiG jailbreak. If you have any problems, please contact us on Twitter (@thejailbreaky), or leave a comment below!

Update: TaiG v2.1.0 has been released which fixes the Cydia Substrate issue as well as the “stuck at 20%” and “stuck at 60%” issue: TaiG releases TaiG v2.1.0 fix for Substrate and the 20% Error.

iOS 9 Preview Out Now – Official Download Method and Visible Changelog

Here is the official method for installing iOS 9 on all your Apple devices.

The requirements are:

iTunes, Paypal (optional) and ebay account or Apple Developer Account 

1. Attain a copy of iOS 9 from this website for your device. Developers use the Apple servers at developer.apple.com. If you are unsure of what your device is head to

Settings / General / About / Model and search the model identifier on your favorite search engine.

Use the direct method if you don’t currently have a torrent client installed… Tixati, uTorrent

2. Open iTunes and click on your Device Summary. Click on the serial number and copy the UDID string letter by letter to your favorite text editing program.

3. Head to eBay and search iOS 9 or go to developer.apple.com if you have a membership. On ebay ask a seller to enroll your device on their Apple Developer Account by sending them your UDID string that you copied from iTunes on your text editor.

4. After your seller confirms your are on the Dev List – Hold Shift and Click on Restore on iTunes using the downloaded .IPSW build of iOS 9 from it’s download folder.

NOTES

Each developer can enroll up to 100 devices and accounts may remain active for a year depending on their membership so you may ask them what their account status is as well. The price that I payed for my registration was $2.29, however are always different and registration wait times are too. Check seller feedback for authenticity. Know that the iOS 9 Preview is beta software and may contain bugs or glitches and is an unfinished build state.

The public beta for iOS 9 starts in the month of July and you may also sign up for it at beta.apple.com

List of noticeable changes and bugs

– Siri has a new light Interface using design elements from the Apple Watch

– The app switcher has moved opened apps to the left and Legacy Spotlight is back with Proactive – Top Pull down Spotlight remains but there are two blur frames causing it to glitch when pulling it down currently and canceling from the left spotlight sometimes doesn’t bring you back to home screen.

– Multitasking currently only supports iOS core system apps from what I have seen and pulling video from a player only works when a notification is shown during playback. It currently only supports one sided multitasking and not two fluid apps at the time but it should be addressed in a future build. You can’t split apps into the center currently.

– Only one new wallpaper was added to the iOS 9 Preview Build.

– New Keyboard has CUT/COPY/PASTE Bar on top that does not go away when not in use.

– Icon placement to the left is not as responsive as previous iOS versions on the home screen.

Spotlight bugs can be eliminated after restarting your device. Side by side multitasking is only available to the iPad Air 2 Model and not the retina mini.

#IO15 Google Photos 16 MP/1080P/Unlimited Storage

At GoogleIO, Google Photos was unveiled. 

The app features uploads of up to 16 Megapixels, making instagrams shy 612×612 minuscule resolution rather “weak.”  Sporting a 6144×4912 Resolution will make everything you ever shoot on a camera a challenge we’ll all accept in the future as devices gain more advanced cameras. Or if you own a fancy one now you can take advantage of the feature as the app features UNLIMITED Web storage instead of using your devices. Another feature is 1080P video uploads but that is common on YouTube – Up to 4K. 

The app can recognize people, has a search function, displays media on a pinch time format, and it is launching later today for PC’s, Web, iOS, and Android.

Enjoy!
