iOS 8.2 TaiG Jailbreak Release Date On March 27th

After public launch more then week ago the question about iOS 8.2 TaiG jailbreak release date is moved to the first position.

TaiG, the Chinese team that developed the TaiG jailbreaking tool for iOS 8.1.2 and iOS 8.2's first couple of betas, could be just about to push a jailbreak solution for iOS 8.2. And with Mobile Security Summit that will take place tomorrow, it could be great chance for jailbreak announcement.

Before the iOS 8.2 launch, TaiG did claim that it had exploits in place that could be used for an untethered jailbreak, but since the software made its way to the end user, the TaiG team has kept decidedly quiet on matters.

In iOS 8.2 release notes Apple company patched some extra exploits that may have thrown a spanner in TaiG’s works. It could indicate that we mightn’t be seeing a jailbreak at any point in the near future. Although iOS hacker and security expert i0n1c has stayted that TaiG could utilize the MSS as a platform to launch its new jailbreak.

Nothing is clear currently, but all jailbreak community will be following the Mobile Security Summit very closely for any big revelations. Although TaiG hasn’t launched a jailbreak yet, but with the MSS being a decent stage to make an announcement, there’s no reason for TaiG to hold on to a develop jailbreak for so long.

So we hope that Chinese team will do all its best and iOS 8.2 TaiG jailbreak release date will be on March 27th. All things will be clear tomorrow.

Best iPhone Cydia Tweaks for iOS 8 [March 2015]

The list of the best tweaks for iOS 8 is growing fast and since Apple released iOS 8.2 [here is how you can download iOS 8.2 on your iDevice to install it using iTunes], devs have more work to do. The new cool jailbreak apps will appear along with numerous updates of previously launched tweaks.

We took some time to mention the top iOS 8 tweaks which can make iPhone usage simpler and faster. Some of the tools are free to download, others costs around a buck.

We have mentioned the free CClean iOS 8 tweak before. It is a popular way to make your Control Center look neat as you can hide some of its elements and play with separators / background making it nicer. If you are a fan of elegant minimalistic looks, this might be a good tool to start with while customizing your iPhone.

There is a one-dollar tweak called Melodic that can become a part of your native Music application. It’s a fast way to share music with your friends via Messages / Airplay. It’s a nice program for music fans.

If you are typing a lot of text messages you might be interested in replacing Return option with Send button on the iPhone. This can be done with a free ReturnToSender jailbreak tweak designed for iOS 8 platform. It has some inner settings you can adjust to make it comfortable to use.

Users who like to sleep longer in the mornings can install the dollar ArithmaticAlarm8 tweak that makes you solve a math equation before you can dismiss your alarm. This can wake up your brains and make your mornings sharper.

There is another way to change the look of iOS 8 Notification Center. Instead of CClean you can use SimpleCenters worth a dollar. This Cydia tweak allows hiding CC and NC elements and also brings minimalistic look to the iPhone.

How To Downgrade iOS 8.2 iPhone To iOS 8.1

Here is detailed guide how to downgrade iOS 8.2 iPhone back to more stable iOS 8.1. Besides that the latest Apple’s mobile software iOS 8.2 has brought forth quite a few new features unfortunately it includes some bugs. In case you faced with some of that issues be it related to battery, Safari or else, as Apple is still signing iOS 8.1, you can downgrade.

Important to remember that this downgrade will not allow you to achieve a jailbreak of any kind. As iOS 8.2, iOS 8.1.3 is not yet jailbreakable, and thus, by reverting to iOS 8.1.3, you will avoid the performance issues that are caused by iOS 8.2 update.

So if you device is still on iOS 8.1.2 and below, it is recommended not to update to iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.1.3.

This guide is useful for only those users whose devices have been updated to iOS 8.2 and need to be downgraded back to more stable iOS 8.1.3. Unfortunately you cannot downgrade iPhone iOS 8.2 to 8.1 version as Apple had stopped signing the firmware.

The iOS 8.2 battery related issues have been well documented, but there are other problems besides that. Safari issue another one, and if you use browser every day, dropping back to iOS 8.1 really help.

As Apple is still signing iOS 8.1 the downgrade is still workable:

Step 1: First thing you need to do is to back up your iOS device to keep in safe your personal data. You can do this through iCloud, or indeed through iTunes.

Step 2: Now download iOS 8.1.3 IPSW specific to your device.

Step 3: Launch iTunes, hold down the Option key (Mac) or the Shift key (Windows) in iTunes, and please choose the Restore iPhone option. Find the IPSW that you downloaded in Step 2, and then select it.

Step 4: Once iTunes has done its job, you should be able to enjoy iOS 8.1 without bugs.

Again, downgrade iOS 8.2 iPhone to the more stable iOS 8.1 is not indefinite, and so if you are having some problems with iOS 8.2, please follow the above guide to avoid being stuck without the choice.

Jailbreak iPhone 6 iOS 8.2 Future Previsions

Here is some portion of information about jailbreak iPhone 6 iOS 8.2. Since Apple company launched iOS 8.2, there is one question is it possible to jailbreak iOS 8.2 devices? Currently there is answer to the above question, it is “No”.

It was possible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 or lower. Although with iOS 8.1.3 the company blocked exploits which was used by the TaiG jailbreak and PP Jailbreak tools. Apple company also patched another vulnerability in iOS 8.2 update. So currently there are no tools to jailbreak iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.1.3.

Maybe it will be possible to jailbreak iOS 8.2 in future. TaiG team has stated they’re confident of pushing a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 when Apple launches it to public. So we hope that they develop the jailbreak.

Rumors claims that the TaiG team will launch the jailbreak during the 2015 Mobile Security Summit that will take place on Friday, March 27.

There are also reports that hackers have cracked Apple’s Lightning port, which could make it easier to debug kernel bugs, and will help in jailbreak iOS 8.2 or later.

Semaphore, developer of TinyUmbrella, launched a new beta version of his tool. TinyUmbrella let user to save SHSH blobs for your iPhone 6 which will be useful while downgrading. Semaphore is quite confident that you will be able to downgrade in near future. It although seems unlikely that you will be able to downgrade down to iOS 8.1.2 without the SHSH blobs.

So the best way out is TaiG iOS 8.2 jailbreak release, with the possibility of downgrading back to iOS 8.2 with SHSH blobs.

So there are few aspects that give us a hope for jailbreak iPhone 6 iOS 8.2 release in the near future.

Download TinyUmbrella For iOS 8.2 iPhone The Latest Beta

Now it is possible to download TinyUmbrella for iOS 8.2 iPhone, as its developer Semaphore aka notcom, has pushed new beta update for the his tool. TinyUmbrella is the tool that allows you to take a backup of SHSH blobs.

A week back Semaphore had launch TinyUmbrella beta, which was rewritten from ground up and a lot more easier in usage. He has also stated that in the future it maybe possible to downgrade to an older iOS version using SHSH blobs.

With this new beta update, Semaphore has also introduced described details about the changes and improvements in TinyUmbrella which will allow you to downgrade ios 8 device to the previous versions.

Now the tool will gain architecture detection. It means that it will warn user in case iTunes is a different architecture. TinyUmbrella will not be able to detect your device, in case this tool and iTunes are not the same architecture.

This latest build removed race conditions revolving around startup and the handling of files. TinyUmbrella was failing to detect very old (3.x) SHSH formats. The developer has fixed this bug. Semaphore also added device highlighting from SHSH table feature. It means that when you select a signature in the table, the corresponding device is highlighted in the device tree.

Longer TSS Fetch cooldown is important fix as if we hit the TSS servers too fast, their flood detection will kick in and we will earn ourselves a nice temporary IP ban.

The developer also plans to add the on-device SHSH fetching feature for A7 and A8 devices. If you have used the previous version of TinyUmbrella beta to save the SHSH blobs, then you don’t need to use it again. If not, then you can download TinyUmbrella for iOS 8.2 iPhone and save them. Use this link to get the latest beta version of Semaphore's tool.

How To Perform DNS Lookup On OS X Terminal

Let's learn how to perform DNS lookup on OS X terminal. Here is all useful detailed information how to do it.

Being it a website, mail server, or whatever else all such domains are associated with an IP address. Nslookup introduces a simple way to get DNS information and an IP for specific website or domain. But if you want to get significantly more detailed retrieval, you can use the host command.

The host command does an extensive DNS lookup for whatever domain it’s pointed at, which makes it much more useful than nslookup. This can be really useful in different situations, whether to troubleshoot and discover DNS propagation issues or simply to get an actual IP address, CNAME, IPv6 address, or otherwise.

The host command usage is easy, as it is included in Mac OS X and Linux, so you can use it wherever necessary to do a DNS lookup. Command syntax is simple, launch Terminal and just use the following:

  • host [domain]

To get any DNS details you can also use the -a flag:

  • host -a [domain]

For instance, replacing [domain] with google and running host -a on gives an extensive listing of DNS lookup details of multiple IP addresses and mail servers.
Air% host -a
Trying ""
;; Truncated, retrying in TCP mode.
Trying ""
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 64673
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 27, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0
;    IN    ANY
;; ANSWER SECTION:    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    299    IN    A    21599    IN    NS    599    IN    MX    40    21599    IN    TYPE257    \# 19 000714981749824711982818926F6D    21599    IN    SOA 2015031701 7200 1800 1209600 300    599    IN    MX    50    3599    IN    TXT    "v=spf1 ip4: ip4: ~all"    21599    IN    NS    21599    IN    NS    599    IN    MX    10    599    IN    MX    20    21599    IN    NS    599    IN    MX    30
Received 613 bytes from in 98 ms
You will see in the end that the DNS servers utilized for the lookup will be outlined at the same timewithout having to question them directly, even though that's still advised if you want a full list of all the DNS servers a particular machine is using. If they were modified just recently and the data you are seeing does not match what it should, flushing DNS cache can be necessary.

You can also get specific record types with the -t flag, for instance, if you want a CNAME or ANAME, or NameServer (NS) record, the syntax would look as follows:
host -t NS [domain]

To use as an example, querying the name server would result in:
% host -t NS name server name server name server name server
As you see DNS lookup on OS X terminal with the host command, it's a good networking toolkit to use.

Where To Download iPhone Antivirus App To Protect Device

If you don't know where to download iPhone antivirus app here is useful information for you. Read it below.

A new report claims Apple company again is clamping down on the items available within its App Stores. And due this report, Apple has seemingly decided to remove antivirus and antimalware apps from the App Store. However Apple company didn't introduce any official statement on this policy change. Apple’s loose guidelines allow them to pull pretty much anything at any time, particularly something like antivirus which has questionable utility within the sandboxed iOS environment of iPhones and iPads.

It is noted in the report that some apps are still showing up when a search is run within the App Store for “antivirus”. Although after further inspection introduces that these apps are games not actually anti-virus products, and some are apps replicating the Find my iPhone feature within the “mobile security” section.

Truly say, App Store search is not the most comprehensive test . But many antivirus apps have definitely been removed, if not all. Many of the true antivirus apps have been erased, including “Anti-Virus Detector.”It is no longer available however it is unclear exactly when this year the app was removed. It was last listed in December. A number of other previously available apps with a similar description are no longer available either.

Perhaps it’s a longtime coming, considering the sandbox nature of iOS apps for Apple’s mobile products, but the move is certainly abrupt if it is the case.

iOS 9 Concept Reveals Interesting Features and Changes

The next major mobile firmware update from Apple is expected to unveil in early June at WWDC where developers and public testers will get the first beta of iOS 9. Right now the company has just upgraded iOS 8.3 beta 3, but designers already share their iOS 9 concept videos to let their imagination reach iPhone and iPad users.

Right now we don’t have too many iOS 9 rumors because most users and experts are closely following the news about Apple Watch release. It’s hard to write about iOS 9: what to expect right now because there are no official statements and all the information will be revealed in mid-2015.

At the moment, we can share the iOS 9 concept created by Ralph Theodory. The changes he is trying to introduce look nice and they might make the mobile experience for ‘fruit’ gadgets much nicer.

You can watch the video with the concept by Theodory:

Apple always has its own vision of its firmware for mobile devices. It will surely improve its iOS 9, optimize it and build in some new features and options to wow customers. This company likes to keep secrets and make customers curious on what it is doing and how it can impress the market.

How do you imagine the next iOS 9?
