Jailbreak iOS 8.2 with TaiG 1.3
TaiG 1.3 is capable of jailbreak iOS 8.2 upto second beta. Apple patched up TaiG exploits when they released iOS 8.2 public. Now there’s no any TaiG version to jailbreak iOS 8.2. Sometimes TaiG will upgrade their tool supported to iOS 8.2. TaiG team is preparing for Jailbreak developers summit at China end of this month. We can expect something new at the Jailbreak summit. Most probably TaiG will release their tool for jailbreak iOS 8.2 while this event.

evad3rs and Pangu seems out of league. We haven’t any news or update from both teams since long time. So we don’t expect anything new at this time also.
Jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 2 with TaiG 1.3
You can jailbreak iOS 8.2 beta 2 with TaiG 1.3 if you have iOS 8.2 beta 2 on your device. But all gates are closed if you have updated your device into iOS 8.2 or switched back to iOS 8.1.3.
