TaiG (Taiji in Chinese) (/taɪ dʒi/ or /taɪ tʃi/) is an untethered jailbreak for all devices on iOS 8.0-8.4, except the Apple TV and Apple Watch. It was initially released on 29 November 2014 for 8.0 - 8.1.2 but since updated to support 8.1.3 - 8.4.

At some point of time, all TaiG download links have been made not working, rendering this jailbreak method unavailable. Even you can get one from a mirror, the application will still try to access TaiG server which is no longer running.

Supported Devices[edit]

All devices capable of running iOS 8.0-8.4 (except the Apple TV family and Apple Watch) are supported.

iOS 8.2 Beta[edit]

TaiG's website originally claimed as early as 4 December 2014that "support of iOS 8.2 has been completed by TaiG, [but] as 8.2 is still at beta stage, we have disabled support for 8.2 in [the] current public release." This claim remained through 31 December 2014, but was removed sometime before.

On 23 February 2015, version 1.3 was released to jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta and beta 2.
