Hackers Create iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Before the Official Firmware Update

It is curious that while jailbreak iOS 8.2 release date is under question now because experts think Apple would patch the hole in this firmware version, hackers boast they have already jailbroken the next operating system for iPhone and iPad.


Ordinary users who happen to install iOS 8.2 beta without UDID cannot jailbreak it at the moment. Hackers who reported that their tool supports this version haven’t included such support into the public release. We are talking about TaiG, hackers from China who became popular when they launched the untether solution for Apple’s iOS 8.1.1 which cannot be jailbroken with Pangu program that, by the way, also comes from China.

TaiG team assures that they can jailbreak 8.2 version and install third-party tweaks and games on the iDevice. If you have the iPhone or other ‘fruit’ gadget which is untouched by hacks you can only download apps and programs from the official Apple Store [iTunes]. Those who risked to perform the jailbreak can do much more. They are able to download thousands of extra apps and tweaks from Cydia which is unofficial jailbreak app store.

Some people were really curious why Apple didn’t kill TaiG in 8.1.2 update as it had such chances because the Chinese team presented their program for 8.1.1 version. Now there are rumors that the Cupertino giant will finish the tast in the next major upgrade thus it is not clear whether you can jailbreak iOS 8.2 with TaiG once it becomes official or not.

Right now, according to hackers, this is possible but they can’t say what happens tomorrow.
