Here’s what you’ve been craving and waiting for, iOS 8.3 users and jailbreak fanatics. The Chinese hacking tool TAiG has just been released and you are the direct beneficiaries. This is rather timely since the Cupertino will release the iOS 8.4 next week.
As promised the newest OS version includes Apple Music with the subscription of music streaming service. Getting back to our main topic, let’s get into the steps of jailbreaking your iOS 8.3 device.
- For first-timers in jailbreaking, not that this step is very crucial. Back-up your device using iTunes then proceed into factory setting it. This step will avoid your device from getting those tiny bugs that went along with the jailbreak release.
- On your Windows PC (yes, only for Windows for the meantime), download the TAiG tool and put the shortcut icon on the desktop so you can easily locate it later.
- On your iOS device, head to Settings>>Touch ID and Passcode>>Turn Passcode Off and return to Settings
- Once you’re in the Settings menu again, proceed to iCloud and then to Find My iPhone. If Find My iPhone is switched on, turn it off.
- Connect your iOS device to your Windows desktop computer (the one where you installed the jailbreaking tool) and launch the TAiG jailbreak program.
- On the splash screen, you will immediately notice two tick boxes—Cydia and 3K Assistant. Both may have checks on their respective boxes. Leave the Cydia box ticked but uncheck the box of 3K Assistant.
- Hit the Start button and let TAiG do its thing in jailbreaking. After that, you can restore your backup from iTunes and let your device be configured. Enjoy!
