TaiG Jailbreak for iOS 8.3

A group of Chinese developers known as “TaiG” has released a jailbreak for iOS 8.3. The jailbreak is untethered, meaning it can boot and reboot freely without the assistance of a computer, and installs on any iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad which is running iOS 8.3.


Jailbreaking is generally not recommended, instead it’s best reserved for advanced users who understand what a jailbreak entails, and why it may be desirable (or not) for some iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Essentially, jailbreaking iOS is a means of modifying iOS system software so that it can run third party and unauthorized code, which can includes various applications, system tweaks and themes, modifications. We suggest only very advanced users with a compelling reason consider jailbreaking their hardware, as there are many reasons not to jailbreak a device, including that Apple may deny warranty service to an iPhone or iPad that has modified iOS software from the jailbreak. Always jailbreak at your own risk, it is not for casual users.

Nonetheless, users who are knowledgeable and understand the risks associated with jailbreaking can download the TaiG untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3 now from the groups website here.

Currently, the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.3 only runs on Windows, so Mac users will need to either turn to running Windows in a Virtual Machine, a PC, or Boot Camp if they really want to jailbreak their iPhone or iPad. Beyond that, you’ll need to back up the iOS device and use a USB cable to install the jailbreak. Directions to install the jailbreak are included on the TaiG site and should look familiar enough to those who have jailbroken a device before.

    There is basically no reason to jailbreak anymore. If you want to run a buggy operating system, run the iOS 9 beta (or final, heh).

    I’m sure some will disagree with me, but for me, I see no benefit anymore. Once upon a time you could unlock and tether your iPhone with a jailbreak, but now you don’t need jailbreaks for that, so the remaining purpose is slim.

      Jailbreaking gives you more benefits, You can customise your iPhone and use the suitable settings that you use at the most, Since iOS gives some limitations which limits you from using something that is not on iPhone.

    • Daekwan says:

      You mean there is no reason for YOU to jailbreak anymore.

      I can still think of several reasons and look very much forward to this one:
      1) Free tethering (actually only way to tether and keep my Unlimited data plan).
      2) Unlimited skips & no ads on Pandora, Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
      3) Set Google Maps & Chrome as the default map and browser on my iPhone
      4) No limits on streaming quality or app updates when using cellular networks
      5) Advanced copy/paste/favourite/history menu shortcuts for the keyboard clipboard
      6) Insert picture(s)/video(s) anywhere from the keyboard clipboard
      7) Spoofing GPS location to use international apps

    • Christian says:

      You say, we don’t need to jailbreak for tethering anymore? What is your jailbreak-less solution to tethering? Been looking for one. Tethering/Hotspot, is the ONLY reason I personally have jailbroken.

      I’ve been tempted, to upgrade to iOS 9, but haven’t because I need to tether every once in a while.

    Nice to know jailbreaking is still active. iOS still doesn’t really feel like a real OS in its basic state.

  3. Kr00 says:

    You should also warn people that it’s rather useless using this jailbreak now because Cydia hasn’t been update to run on 8.3, as are many tweaks, and the substrait so you’ll break what you already have.

    i jailbreak for the pandora and itunes radio unlimited skips and no commercials.

    plus, why not? ill have fun with my phone the rest of you can enjoy a boring phone

    I do enjoy jailbreak. For example, I removed ads in a such a easy way, and I enjoy Safari browsing. Fast. And second..themes. changing the look of icons brings a refreshing air to my eyes.

    • JT says:

      Themes are boring. Removing ads cheats people out of money and it’s the wrong thing to do, imagine if someone removed the income from your job?

      • B says:

        Removing ads is the wrong thing to do? LOL

        • wonbo says:

          B, you should work for free. Whatever you do, you should stop getting paid for it, keep doing it but receive no compensation. That’s what using an ad blocker is doing for writers and web workers. Do you like working for free?

    I agree that jailbreaking isn’t really necessary anymore but each to their own I guess..
