- Fix "stuck at 20%" or 1101 error:
By uninstalling latest version of iTunes and reinstalling an older version of iTunes, you can solve a number of other TaiG 2.0 errors. Many have reported being stuck at 20 or 30% during the jailbreak process. You can solve that issue by installing older iTunes too.
[Update]: Some users have found iTunes 12.0.1 working for them instead of 12.1.0. Here are the links:
- Fix Error 1102:
If you get Error 1102 then you should try to limit your device's connectivity through turning on Airplane mode and turn off Passcode and Touch ID:
- Settings > Touch ID & Passcode.
- TaiG Error 1103:
For Error 1103, your download file might be corrupt. Fix this by downloading TaiG again from here.
- Fix Error 1104:
If you've managed to get your jailbreaking process stuck at 30 - 40% then you're encountering Error 1104. Unfortunately you might have to switch to a different Windows PC for this to resolve. You can also try switching to a different USB port.
- TaiG 1105 (stuck at 50%):
If it's stuck at 50%, for Error 1105, then check if Find My iPhone is turned off:
- Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone
Also check if any antivirus or firewall program is enabled. Disable any such programs and jailbreak again. Once you have jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you can enable these again.

If your device is stuck at 60%, then you're going to have to carry out a couple of steps.
