TaiG 2.4.2 Released to Fix iOS 8.4 Jailbreak-Stuck Issues – Bundled with Cydia 1.1.23

Jul 13, 2015

Woot! TaiG team seems to be busy with the bug fixing of their iOS jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4 – iOS 8.1.3. A new TaiG 2.4.2 beta is now out including the very latest Cydia 1.1.23 fixing various issues. Here are the details and download links.

What’s new in TaiG 2.4.2 beta and Cydia 1.1.23:

The latest version of TaiG jailbreak focuses on fixing the “stuck at 30%” and “stuck at 40%” issues. We had already shared with you the fixes of these two and various other bugs that readers shared with us. You can check our long list of TaiG bug fixes. However, as mentioned in our earlier posts too, it is always preferable to get official bug fixes to get things going smoothly. Considering a large amount of users who reported getting stuck at 30% and 40% during the jailbreaking process, TaiG has finally released the fix with TaiG 2.4.2 beta.

However, this is not a mandatory update so those of our readers who managed to successfully jailbreak using earlier TaiG versions are recommended to not update to this as it’s in the beta version. This build is specifically recommended for those who got the stuck at 30% or 40%. Here’s the complete TaiG 2.4.2 beta changelog:

Integrate the latest Cydia 1.1.23.
Fix issues of getting stuck at 30% and 40%.
If you were getting stuck at 30% or 40% when you tried to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad using the TaiG jailbreak, then you can try again using the TaiG 2.4.2 beta jailbreak tool.

Now that we are over discussing TaiG 2.4.2 beta, here are what changes does Cydia 1.1.23 – also released today – brings to your jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

  • The new Cydia update allows you to downgrade packages
  • It helps you to easily discover tweaks for your installed apps
  • Cache bug fixed

Here’s the complete Cydia 1.1.23 changelog:

Support Package Downgrades

All too often, I release a new package, and find out during the first few hours after release that there was a serious regression :(. Even if I pull the new version, users who upgraded do not have a way to easily downgrade.

Now, not only wil Cydia allow you to downgrade to the “current” version, but it also allows downgrading to any previous version that is available on the repository. Going forward, I will leave previous versions online for some time while users are able to sort out issues.

Find Extensions for Applications

This feature was directly inspired by UnlimApps, who released a Substrate extension for Cydia called TweakHub.

The idea: automatically determine what applications a Substrate extension is designed to modify, and use that to provide categorized lists based on the iOS applications you have installed.

This technique is exciting, as it does not rely on repositories and developers to manually tag packages (this never works out): most of this information is already picked up automatically by Cydia’s “whole package index” :D.

(Oh, if it isn’t yet clear why UnlimApps wanted this feature: they develop a number of app-specific extensions ;P.)

Clearing Caches Could Kill Cydia

A user reported a situation where they ran out of disk space, iOS cleared their caches, and then Cydia wouldn’t run.
