i0n1c done Jailbreak iOS 8.2 successfully
Steffan Esser has obviously done iOS 8.2 jailbreak successfully. But he’s still keeping his 8.2 jailbreak personal. He has just tweeted out an image showing that home screen transition effect on iPhone 6 but there’s no exact proof of iOS version. The effect he’s using on home screen seems to be Cylinder. We can trust i0n1c’s works although he hasn’t provided a proof for iOS version because everyone know he’s an competent jailbreak developer but not interested to release his work for public. check the image tweeted by Steffan Esser below.
Last week i0n1c released an video showing jailbroken iOS 8.4 beta 1. This must be also a result of same work. anyway, jailbreak lovers has no prefer of seeing jailbreak clues from i0n1c because they believe he’s just use his works for make himself popular. Many times he showed that he has jailbreak solutions but never released them to public. People doesn’t want to know whether latest iOS versions are jailbreakable or not, they need a real public jailbreak tool which is capable of install Cydia on their devices.
We cannot predict will Pangu, Taig or any other jailbreak team would develop an iOS 8.2 jailbreak tool becacuse we don’t know whether they have vulnerabilities to exploit iOS 8.2. We are waiting for bring you a good news as soon as someone release a tool for Jailbreak iOS 8.2 or later.
i0n1c jailbreak iOS 8.4 beta 1
Steffan Esser who known as i0n1c on Twitter, has published a video on his Youtube channel that shows running Cydia on iOS 8.4 beta 1 installed iPhone 6. This video has triggered the Jailbreak niche back in action. He has proved the device running exactly iOS 8.4 beta 1 by showing the Apple watch app and the Apple music app with new interface.
According to i0n1c the vulnerability used to exploit iOS 8.4 beta 1 in his jailbreak is not new to iOS. He has found it right after the Syscan Mobile Security Summit which is held at Singapore and has spent more than 4 days of hard working to bring the jailbreak working properly. He might release a public tool for jailbreak iOS 8.4 after Apple introduce iOS 8.4 officially and become much stable. He has also mentioned that there’s no relativity of his early jailbreak concept Cyberelevat0r which proposed for jailbreak iOS 7.x.x.

Taig and Pangu has not responded about iOS 8.3 update. There were tons of predictions that Taig was to release iOS 8.2 jailbreak at the Mobile Security Summit organized by TaiG team but that didn’t happen. There’s no clue from TaiG about release new jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3 yet.
Cydia for iOS 8.3
Cydia is the most popular third party app store for iOS devices which could only be installed through the process called Jailbreak. Jailbreak stands for gain administrator privileges on Apple devices in simple terms. Cydia won’t be install on your device without jailbreak. But you can have Cydia simulation which appears like Cydia but not functioning, if you are really new to Cydia and wanna have a realistic experience.

We cannot predict exact time. But definitely the jailbreak tool will totally free of charge. You don’t have to pay anyone for jailbreak your device. Don’t get scammed by fake jailbreak sellers who claims they have paid iOS 8.3 jailbreak solution. You’ll be end up with frustration.

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.
Alternative options for jailbreak iOS 8.2
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. There are lots of iOS 8.2 compatible Cydia tweaks, apps and themes. It’s a worth effort to jailbreak iOS 8.2 if there’s any provision for it. We recommend not to upgrade your devices if you have iOS 8.1.2 or lower version. May be you have already jailbroken. Unless you can jailbreak any iOS version below iOS 8.1.2 using our Cydia installer v1.01.
