Apple Releases 8.1.2, Can I Jailbreak 8.1.2 Via TaiG, Should I Update?

Apple Releases 8.1.2, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.2 and Should I Update? – Today, in a surprise release, without having first entered iOS developer beta form, Apple issued iOS 8.1.2 (the second incremental 8.1.x update, of course succeeding 8.1.1) to the general public. As of now, unlike its predecessor, 8.1.2 cannot be jailbroken by way of either TaiG, being the latest 8.1.1 Untethered jailbreak or the older Pangu for iOS 8 through 8.1 utility, which was patched when Apple released 8.1.1. However, in light of the fact that it’s not currently possible to jailbreak 8.1.2, today’s news isn’t all bad for jailbreakers – we’ll elaborate on that shortly. As with past iOS 8 updates, in addition to being available via Apple’s iOS over-the-air (more commonly referred to as OTA for short) update ability, 8.1.2 can be downloaded, and fully installed, directly through iTunes. However, its absolutely critical that current iOS 8 through 8.1.1 jailbreak users avoid the latest firmware at all costs! Again, as alluded to above, being the second minor release since the company issued 8.1, the latest 8.1.2 update is just that, a minor release. In light of that fact, although it’s too early to state for certain, a number of vulnerabilities exploited in the TaiG jailbreak for 8.1.1 appear to remain unpatched in iOS 8.1.2. However, without an update to the utility, and more extensive testing to know for certain which of said vulnerabilities were addressed in 8.1.2, or more likely not addressed, it’s not possible for any device to jailbreak 8.1.2 when utilizing the latest TaiG jailbreak utility. Continue reading past the break for additional information concerning TaiG and how 8.1.2 plays into the latest jailbreak!

iOS 8.1.2 Released – Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.1.2 Untethered With TaiG?

As suggested by iOS 8.1.2’s own release notes, the firmware simply addresses a minor bug that was reportedly causing complications with ringtones purchased on a device through the iTunes Store. Seriously, that’s it, performance updates, other improvements and additional features are out of the question.

For that reason, iOS 8.1.2 is no more stable than 8.1.1, the negligible bug that prompted iOS 8.1.2’s release doesn’t justify the loss of one’s jailbreak – at least not right now.

iOS 8 Jailbreakers Should Avoid 8.1.2, As A TaiG Jailbreak Isn’t Available!

While iOS 8.1 added a number of welcomed improvements, including Apple Pay support for the iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6, SMS forwarding that enabled Macs running OS X Yosemite and iPads to send and receive SMS and MMS messages remotely from an iPhone, Instant Hotspot tethering and iCloud Photo Library beta, and iOS 8.1.1 improved the performance of the older iPhone 4S and iPad 2, the same cannot be said for 8.1.2.

Hypothetically speaking, if one were to update their jailbroken device via iTunes, as of writing this article, it would result in the instant loss of said device’s jailbreak, making it virtually impossible to jailbreak past 8.1.1 until a new utility is issued. And, speaking of a new utility, seeing as it’s been confirmed that, at the very least, the main kernel exploit utilized by TaiG to jailbreak 8.1.1 remains unpatched in 8.1.2, it’s very likely that the team will update their utility for support with today’s iOS 8.1.2 firmware.

Having said that, as stated above, if your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is currently jailbroken on 8.0.x or 8.1.x, avoid updating to 8.1.2 like the plague until such a time that the update has been successfully jailbroken.

What’s Next For Jailbreaking Now That 8.1.2 Is Available?

Let’s briefly discuss what’s next for jailbreaking now that the new 8.1.2 has been issued and whether TaiG will update their utility to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2. There’s no denying that this has been an exceptional time for jailbreakers, with iOS 8 through 8.1 first having been jailbroken by Pangu, followed by the all-new TaiG team’s 8.1.1 jailbreak utility, but are there plans to update either of such tools to jailbreak 8.1.2 and beyond?

Thankfully, the answer is an incredible “yes”! As loosely translated from a statement recently made by the TaiG team themselves: “we will try to give you surprises in every subsequent iOS public release”. That statement, in conjunction with the fact that, at the bare minimum, the main kernel exploit has been preserved in 8.1.2, bodes extremely well for the possibility of a TaiG jailbreak 8.1.2 update.

iOS 8.1.1 And Jailbreak Update Summary

To summarize, iOS 8.1.2 isn’t as big of a deal as its predecessor was – at the time it patched the only Untethered jailbreak. However, having said that, it’s recommended that any individual interested in both jailbreaking and updating avoid today’s release until it’s possible to once again jailbreak the latest public firmware, otherwise individuals who update will be locked out of jailbreaking for the time being.

Of course, as always, we’ll have complete details and updates pertaining to how the new minor 8.1.2 release, as well as future updates, will play into jailbreaking in the days, weeks and months to come – stay tuned and keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Best Cydia Tweaks iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak, Top 42 Tweak List For TaiG And Pangu

Top Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Cydia Tweaks, 42 of The Best And Cool TaiG And Pangu Tweaks – It’s been a rather incredible week from a jailbreakers’ standpoint – not only was an all-new jailbreak utility for the new iOS 8.1.1 public firmware (the very same that patches the previous Pangu jailbreak for 8.1) released, but said utility was also confirmed to be safe by none other than famed hacker MuscleNerd of the evad3rs (the team responsible for both evasi0n and evasi0n7). Hopping from one public firmware to the next, the Chinese-based Pangu and TaiG dev teams are keen on ensuring that no firmware, be it large or small (as TaiG proved in releasing their 8.1.1 jailbreak), remain un-jailbroken for any substantial period of time. Having said that, the staff of Evasi0n Jailbreak decided that this was the perfect time to share with our incredible readers some of the best iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak Tweaks currently available on Cydia for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models jailbroken by either Pangu for 8.0 through 8.1 or TaiG for iOS 8.1.1. After all, what would jailbreaking 8.1 through 8.1.1 be with out the brilliant Cydia developers, with their impossibly useful and incredible tweaks, that are fundamentally interwoven into the very nature of the jailbreak scene? While intended to be rhetorical, we’ll answer the aforementioned question anyway for the principal of the topic: boring, dull and rather useless to the average jailbreaker, as it it would mean jailbreaking offers nothing other than a pleasant and shiny new Cydia icon. For those of you in desperate need of guidance post-jailbreak on 8.1.1, this is the article for you – continue reading past the break for over 40 incredible iOS 8 Cydia Tweaks!

Top iOS 8 Cydia Tweaks Jailbreak TaiG Best 42 Jailbreak 8.1.1 Tweak List!

First, prior to delving into today’s list, it’s crucial that your device be already jailbroken on iOS 8, either by way of Pangu for iOS 8 to 8.1 or TaiG for devices running the latest public iOS 8.1.1 firmware. If you have yet to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, we strongly advise following either our thorough TaiG jailbreak guide for 8.1.1 or our older, yet equally comprehensive, tutorial for jailbreaking 8.1 utilizing Pangu.

Also, the majority of the tweaks found in today’s article were curated by popular YouTuber iCrackUriDevice, save the additional bonus tweak, which is also featured as this articles primary image (as seen above).

Any jailbreaker questioning TaiG or whether they should update to iOS 8.1.1 and jailbreak via TaiG will find the above video beneficial.

Without further ado, enjoy the following tweaks – numbers nine through forty two can be found on iCrackUriDevice’s Top Cydia Tweaks for iOS 8 through 8.1.1 playlist, which is linked to below for your convenience.

Top Cydia Tweaks For iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak TaiG Users, Best Cydia Tweaks Of All Time!

1. BounceNotify8 is a free tweak that adds a rather slick animation to iOS, more specifically the dock. Borrowing from OS X, with the BounceNotify8 tweak installed, apps that are present in a devices dock will display a nice bounce animation until the notifications are attended to.

2. iCleaner is an incredible tweak that utilizes a free ad-supported model, with an option to support the developer and remove said ads, that allows for the total cleaning of specific files on your device that would otherwise be left unkept. Additionally, iCleaner is capable of freeing up to gigabytes of storage space on that spiffy flash memory soldered to your logic board by deleting OTA (over-the-air) updates that are often needlessly downloaded and stored by iOS, as well as attachments for the Messages app.

3. Crashreporter assists in the determination of which third-party package distributed via Cydia causes a Springboard crash and forcing your device into Safemode. While it may not sound important to some, veteran jailbreakers can certainly attest to the annoyance of tweaks that are either incompatible with your device or its firmware.

4. Prettier Banners adds profile pictures to notification banners associated with the default Messages app, as the name would suggest (depending on the in question contact, of course). The free iOS 8.1.1 tweak “prettifies”, for lack of a better term, notification banners.

5. LockSmoother is for the purists and flat UI enthusiasts, as it empowers the user to clean up certain elements of an iOS 8.1.1 device’s lockscreen so to speak, by allowing for the toggling of the various elements that comprise said lockscreen to even further enhance iOS 7 and 8’s anti-skeuomorphic design.

6. AdvancedSettings8 adds a rather interesting aspect to iOS’ default Settings app, or rather enables one that’s typically hidden from the enduser by Apple. AdvancedSettings8 allows the user to long press the Settings app icon on a device homescreen to enter Apple’s hidden advanced Settings menu – keep in mind any modifications will not be retained upon reboot. This tweak is mostly intended for those who are curious as to what said “hidden” menu contains and how it influences iOS’ look and overall feel.

7. Killbackground8 revives an old tweak that allows for the simple and fast closing of all apps open in the background via a convenient button that’s placed inside the default app switcher.

8. AppHeads is a premium Cydia tweak that redefines multitasking on iOS-based devices. Once AppHeads is installed on a device circular representations of the apps open on the device and replace the default card-style multitasking view, which can be fully customized, repositioned and hidden utilizing a simple Activator command. Moreover, the user can enter a “live preview” for any app open in the background and fully interact with said app, allowing for a much more fluid and productive workflow.

9 – 41. Instead of writing a synopsis for the remainder of the tweaks, we thought it best to embed iCrackUriDevice’s playlist below (note: said playlist starts with the same video that’s embedded above, which covers tweaks one through eight, feel free to skip past the first video) and link you to it, as that will be the best representation of each.

Cool TaiG Jailbreak 8.1.1 Cydia Tweaks List Continued

42. Evasi0n Jailbreak’s forty second Tweak, Editors Choice: WatchBoard is a great tweak that replaces the default homescreen interface we’ve come to know and love with one that’s heavily inspired by Apple’s forthcoming Apple Watch. For those of you who can’t wait to try the Watch at an unspecified point in “early 2015,” this tweak should certainly peak your interest.

Additionally, WatchBoard is created by the very same developer who brought us Barrel, arguably one of the most popular jailbreak tweaks of all time that adds page transition animations to iOS. With WatchBoard’s background in mind, it quickly becomes an easy first choice when considering which Apple Watch-esque tweak to purchase and install.

With not only Pangu available to jailbreak iOS 8 though 8.1, but also the all-new TaiG utility to jailbreak those iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models running the latest public iOS 8.1.1 firmware, this is unquestionably an incredible time to install the plethora of tweaks highlighted in today’s article – note, you’ll need to be jailbroken to install any of such tweaks.

Is TaiG Safe To Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1? The Shocking Truth Revealed!

Is The iOS 8.1.1 TaiG Jailbreak Safe? The Shocking Truth Revealed – While it doesn’t happen often, the emergence of a new jailbreak (especially from a relatively new team) to the previously sparse jailbreak scene will never fail to prompt questions surrounding said jailbreak’s legitimacy. The recent TaiG 8.1.1 jailbreak utility is no exception – while the group does have a history in the world of jailbreaking (they attempted to fund the evad3rs for creating evasi0n7 last year), it’s a rather tainted one, as the group promised to pay the evad3rs for bundling a questionable third-party software distribution platform for Chinese-based devices into the evasi0n jailbreak tool itself. Ultimately, after having been scrutinized by the public for perpetuating what the team had publicly stated they were against (the taboo topic that is app piracy, which we’re entirely against at Evasi0n Jailbreak by the way), the team rejected TaiG’s funds and pulled the aforementioned distribution platform from their utility. Following said sequence of events, TaiG had all but disappeared from the jailbreak scene, until now – the group took the community by storm by releasing an all-new, out-of-the-blue utility of their own to jailbreak 8.1.1 completely Untethered for all iDevices; but is it safe? Find out after the break!

Untethered 8.1.1 TaiG Jailbreak – Is It Safe And Should I Use TaiG?

A lot has changed since last year, jailbreaks from US and European-based Dev Teams (i.e. the evad3rs) have all but been replaced by the foreign and somewhat uncertain, seen as “sketchy” in the eyes of many, Chinese-based iOS 7 and iOS 8 jailbreak solutions that are the byproduct of an ‘unofficial app trade,’ for lack of the more appropriate term.

Moreover, in what can only be seen as the height of hypocrisy in retrospect, the same jailbreakers who previously frowned on the entire concept of a jailbreak being born for the sole purpose of monetary gain are now using just that to achieve an Untethered jailbreak on their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models.

But in the murky territory that’s now becoming the ‘norm’ with each new jailbreak, one question continues to shine through the cloud of moral uncertainty: “is it safe?”. Thankfully, we have our answer for the brand new TaiG iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tool, also referred to as TaiGJBreak iOS 8!

Untethered 8.1.1 Jailbreak Tutorial via TaiG, It’s As Safe As We’ll Get!

According to MuscleNerd, the primary public figure of those who are quickly becoming the quondam kings of jailbreaking: the evad3rs, TaiG is safe.

In fact, the new TaiG jailbreak is so safe that the hacker not only states that the Untether package (the portion of the jailbreak that enables a device to reboot without the assistance of a computer, while enabling root access for the use of third-party tweaks – in essence, the very foundation of a jailbreak) is “much more transparent than Pangu,” but also recommends that jailbreakers on 8.1 upgrade to iOS 8.1.1 and utilize TaiG to re-jailbreak!

TaiG’s Really Safer Than Pangu, What About The Log File?

In a series of updates, MuscleNerd reported his findings after having investigated the new 8.1.1 TaiG Jailbreak over the past two days. To summarize, the tool contains “nothing too unsettling” and that it merely features “some light device fingerprinting”. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, MuscleNerd went on to elaborate that TaiG simply creats an empty log file on a PC, in addition to the exe (program) file – from there “when you run the tool it’ll log the urls accessed in a log/<timestamp>.log file”.

In other words, nothing malicious will occur when utilizing TaiG, at all. MuscleNerd even gave one jailbreaker a quick example and commented the following: “nothing outlandish”.

So there you have it, not only can you avoid installing the unwanted distribution platform (by following our new jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 guide), but TaiG is 100% safe and it’s even more transparent than Pangu!

For those of you who have yet to utilize TaiG to jailbreak 8.1.1 or Pangu to jailbreak iOS 8 through 8.1 completely Untethered, we recommend following said guides, as they’ll ensure the success of your jailbreak.

Furthermore, if you want to follow MuscleNerd’s advice and upgrade to 8.1.1 with the intent of jailbreaking via TaiG, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak for a thorough upgrade guide.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 news feed, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and add us on Google+ to be expediently notified when we publish future articles concerning iOS 8.1.1, future 8.1.x updates and revisions to both the Pangu and TaiG jailbreak utilities.

TaiG Releases 8.1.1 Jailbreak, New Jailbreak 8.1.1 Tutorial For All Devices!

TaiG Issues 8.1.1 Jailbreak, It’s Now Possible to Jailbreak 8.1.1 Untethered: Tutorial for All Devices – Well, this is a first. Earlier this morning, an all-new jailbreak 8.1.1 solution was released by the TaiG team (the same group of developers that initially, and briefly, funded the evad3rs last year when creating evasi0n7, before said funding was pulled due to community uproar). The brand new tool from TaiG, dubbed TaiGJBreak for iOS 8 is capable of delivering a seemingly bug-free Untethered jailbreak for 8.1.1 and all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models. Although it’s interesting, and rather odd, that TaiG opted to release a utility while Apple was still signing 8.1, allowing iDevice owners to easily downgrade from 8.1.1 with intent to execute a jailbreak on 8.1, this is an absolutely incredible time for jailbreakers the world over. In what looks like a heated rivalry between TaiG and Pangu, two Chinese groups both funded by third-party companies with other monetary interests in jailbreaking (specifically non-App Store app distribution in China), it seems as though we’ll start seeing new jailbreak tools in rapid fire succession as the teams race against one another. Like Pangu 1.1.1 for iOS 8 through 8.1, TaiG comes bundled with Cydia (the graphical user interface we’ve all come to know and love over the years for distributing third-party tweaks and modifications). Jailbreaking on 8.1.1 with either the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, the latest iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, the original iPad Air and iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 2 or the 5th generation iPod touch is surprisingly fast and stable. Continue reading past the quick break for complete and thorough instructions on how to jailbreak the aforementioned iDevices running 8.1 fully UnTethered!

How To Jailbreak 8.1.1 Untethered TaiG On iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5S, 4S, iPod 5 And All iPads

As stated above, this guide will assist you in the (basically) one-click jailbreak iOS 8.x and 8.1.1 process, which also installs Cydia and allows for easy tweak acquisition.

The all-new TaiG 8.1.1 jailbreak utility supports a wide array of devices: every iPhone, iPod and iPad model that’s cable of upgrading to iOS 8 through 8.1.1, including the following:

  • iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 – the new A8X iPhones
  • All iPhone 5x models, being iPhone 5s, 5c and 5
  • The older A5 iPhone 4S
  • Apple’s A8X tri-core iPad Air 2 and the original iPad Air
  • All iPad Mini models, including the Mini 3, 2 and 1
  • The older full-sized iPad 4, iPad 3 and iPad 2
  • iPod touch 5th generation
Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Requirements: All iPhone, iPod Touch And iPad Models

Prior to delving into this Untethered iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak tutorial, ensure that you meet the following TaiG jailbreak requirements to ensure the success of your upcoming Untethered jailbreak on Apple’s new 8.1.1 firmware.

  1. Any of the above iDevices running iOS 8 through 8.1.1 that weren’t updated via Apple’s OTA (over-the-air) update option in the Settings app . If you happened to perform an over-the-air update, follow the steps below. Also, confirm that your device does not have a passcode or the Find my iPhone option enabled, both of which can cause complications – it’s very important that you disable them.
  2. A Windows-based PC – while Mac OS X isn’t officially supported by TaiG, devices running 8.1 can follow our Pangu for OS X guide to successfully jailbreak.
  3. The latest iteration of iTunes, as well as the brand new Windows-based TaiG jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 tool, both of which can be found, and downloaded, from the download section below.
Important Jailbreak Prerequisites For 8.1.1 And TaiG

Now, as alluded to in the first point in the above requirements list, if you updated your device to 8.1.1 through Apple’s OTA update capability and you want to ensure that you don’t encounter issues, and/or if you wish to err on the side of caution, follow the below procedure prior to jailbreaking to ensure the guaranteed success of your jailbreak.

1. Plug your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into your computer via a standard USB cable and initiate a total backup inside of iTunes.

2. Restore to a clean build of iOS 8 by clicking the option to “Restore”.

3. Jailbreak your device on 8.1.1 by following this guide and, once you’re successfully jailbroken with Cydia, restore from the backup you created when adhering to the first step.

Finally, without further ado, you can proceed with the final set of steps outlined below to jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 completely Untethered on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad!

iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak Tutorial Utilizing TaiGJBreak

Step 1. In addition to downloading TaiGJBreak for iOS 8, you’ll need to obtain the latest version of iTunes. To ensure you obtain genuine copies of both use the links below in our download section.

Step 2. After having downloaded TaiG to jailbreak 8.1.1, plug your iPad, iPhone or iPod into your Windows PC using either Apple’s standard Lightning USB cable for newer devices (like the iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2) or 30-pin connector for the older iPad models and the iPhone 4s.

Step 3. Swipe up on your device to summon Control Center, toggle Airplane mode and uncheck the second option at the bottom of the foreign TaiG interface (reference the above video for a detailed visual).

Step 4. Click the green button at the bottom of the TaiG utility to continue and proceed onward with the jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 process.

Step 5. Leave your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch connected to your computer, refrain from interacting with it, and once it reboots, you’ll be greeted with the very welcome sight that is Cydia in what was previously a blank space on your device’s springboard! However, prior to launching Cydia, toggle off Airplane mode, tap into Cydia and let it reorganize your device’s filesystem – once complete, it will automatically respring.

Congratulations, after having followed five simple and easy-to-understand steps, you’ve successfully jailbroken your iPod touch, iPhone or iPad running iOS 8.1.1!

If you find yourself confused post-jailbreak, we advise watching iCrackUriDevice’s recent Top free Cydia tweaks for iOS 8 video for 8 incredible tweaks – stay tuned for coverage on other useful and interesting Cydia packages.

Downgrade 8.1.1 To 8.1 Guide – Downgrading To Jailbreak iOS 8.1

Downgrade from iOS 8.1.1 to 8.1 Tutorial, Downgrading to Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered via Pangu – Following the enormous blow to the jailbreak community that was iOS 8.1.1, a number of our readers have inquired as to whether it’s possible to jailbreak 8.1.1 Untethered. Unfortunately, as we’ve detailed throughout several articles as of late, iOS 8.1.1 closes a number of vulnerabilities previously exploited by Pangu for iOS 8 to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak on 8.0 through 8.1. Therefore, it’s no longer possible to jailbreak any device, whether it’s a newer iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPad mini 3, iPad Air 2 or an older iPhone 4s or iPad 2, on iOS 8.1.1 – it’s impossible to jailbreak 8.1.1 employing the use of the current Pangu utility. At this point, you may be wondering if it’s possible to downgrade from 8.1.1 to 8.1 (the latest firmware supported by Pangu). Thankfully, the answer is an astounding “yes”! In spite of Apple’s recent efforts to close the untethered iOS 8 jailbreak, the company has yet to stop signing iOS 8.1. For those of you who wish to downgrade from iOS 8.1.1 to 8.1 in order to perform a jailbreak, continue reading past the break, and do so with haste, as this incredible opportunity won’t last!

Downgrading To 8.1 – Downgrade From iOS 8.1.1 To Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered

First, prior to outlining the relatively simple steps, it’s important to understand how iOS restores are delivered and verified, at least at a rudimentary level.

Essentially, before even initiating the restore process, iTunes takes the identity of the device (its type, model, etc.), as well as the IPSW (firmware file) and checks against Apple’s servers to cross-reference the device intended for restore with the latest firmware the company is currently signing, or allowing for the specified device.

If an individual attempts to restore to an older firmware that’s no longer being signed for the specified device (utilizing the method we’ll outline in today’s article), before even entering the restore procedure, iTunes will return an error message, effectively making downgrades impossible. Moreover, while it was an option to utilize TinyUmbrella to essentially trick iTunes into utilizing a non-Apple server to verify that a firmware is being signed with device-specific SSH blobs, due to Apple’s strict security improvements that’s no longer an option – it’s either restore via iTunes utilizing Apple’s servers or nothing at all.

Furthermore, while Apple is currently signing 8.1.1, in addition to 8.1, that could change at virtually any second (we’ll update this article when it does). In light of the aforementioned fact, it’s paramount that any and all iDevice owners running 8.1.1 downgrade as quickly as possible to ensure that they won’t be stuck on the firmware without a jailbreak in sight for what’s bound to be a painful wait (for more on jailbreaking, read through our recent coverage on new developments or watch the below video).

How To Downgrade 8.1.1 To 8.1 And Jailbreak: All iDevices

Step 1. In addition to downloading 8.1 prior to downgrading to the firmware, you’ll need to ensure that iTunes is up-to-date – downloads for the iOS 8.1 IPSW and iTunes are available from our download section, listed below.

Step 2. Plug your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8.1.1 that’s intended for downgrade to 8.1 into your computer via a standard USB cable and launch iTunes.

Step 3. Once iTunes recognizes your device (if it doesn’t, ensure that you’ve updated iTunes), enter Recovery mode by holding down the home and power buttons together until an iTunes logo appears on your device’s screen and iTunes displays a restore prompt, close out of any of said prompts.

Step 4. Hold either Option if you’re on Mac OS X or Shift if you’re on a Windows-based PC and left click the restore button inside of iTunes; refer to the above video if this portion of the 8.1 downgrade process is confusing.

Step 5. Wait for the restore to complete, follow our in-depth iOS 8.1 jailbreak guide and then restore from your latest backup that was created on iOS 8.1 or earlier.

Note: Due to Apple’s strict measure, you cannot restore from a backup that was created on a higher firmware, meaning you won’t be able to restore any of your data from 8.1.1, use a backup from iOS 8.1 or earlier – again, if this portion is confusing in any way, we advise referring to the above video for additional clarification.

Congratulations, after following only five simple and easy-to-understand steps, you’ve successfully downgraded from 8.1.1 to 8.1 on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad – you can now jailbreak iOS 8.1 successfully!

Jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 Achieved By iH8sn0w, Latest Update

As alluded to previously, for those of you seeking additional information on the status of the next jailbreak post 8.1.1, the above video contains the latest status of said tool – we also recommend reading through our compressive analysis of the subject.
