Jul 3, 2015

TaiG released TaiG v2 iOS 8.3 - iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak only a week before Apple released iOS 8.4 to public. TaiG has now also released jailbreak iOS 8.4 tool which is - again - Windows only. If you don't have a Windows PC, we will share with you how to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on Mac OS X. TaiG team is of course expected to release the Mac OS X compatible tool soon but until the Mac version comes, you will have to jailbreak using a virtual machine. Here is how.

How to jailbreak iOS 8.4 using TaiG 2.3 OS X:

TaiG team was first to release iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool, however, PP released the first tool to jailbreak iOS 8.4. TaiG quickly followed by releasing its own updated version for iOS 8.4 and if you are a fan of TaiG, there is no reason why you should move to any other solutions. iOS 8.4 is the last update until iOS 9 comes in September giving you plenty of time to enjoy your jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch until the newer OS comes. iOS 8.4 JB tool also makes it possible for you to enjoy Apple Music which wasn't a possibility with iOS 8.3 as Apple's music streaming service requires you to be on iOS 8.4.

Remember the latest TaiG 2.3.x fixes the setreuid kernel patch and bring in Cydia 1.1.19 as a bundle. Here are the steps to jailbreak iOS 8.4 on OS X:

Required files: download Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac with its free 14 day trial.

  • Open Parallels Desktop 10.
  • Once launched, create a new Virtual Machine. Under Free Systems, click on  Windows 10 Insider Preview.
  • You will be taken through the process of downloading and installing it on your Mac virtually.

Once Windows is booted on your machine, download and install iTunes 12.0.1. As we have previously mentioned, latest version of iTunes gives many errors to some users so it's better to go with 12.0.1.

Once you have installed iTunes, follow our step by step guide to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on iOS 8.4. Download jailbreak iOS 8.4 TaiG 2.3.x from here if you are already a pro at steps.
