Apple Stops Signing iOS 8.2 Beta 1 and 2, Kills Jailbreak

The news about Apple signing iOS 8.2 beta 2 / 1 was a good one in the end of February when hackers found a way how to untether jailbreak both testing versions on iPhone, iPod touch 5G and iPad. Sadly, this happy iOS 8.2 beta 1 signing status as well as beta 2 has been changed, and starting on March 1, 2015 it is no longer possible to install this firmware version if you are running iOS 8.1.3.

Users who learned about TaiG and PP Jailbreak supporting iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2 jailbreaking and wanted to run it the next week will not succeed if they didn’t upgrade right away before Apple stopped signing both firmwares.

iDevice owners who had time to install either iOS 8.2 beta 1 or 2 can run PP Jailbreak on OS X or Taig on Windows to get Cydia store on their Home screen. Fans of the jailbreaking community who are still on iOS 8.1.3 are out of luck as Apple no longer signing iOS 8.2 beta 1 and 2.

Users who got a chance to jailbreak should be very attentive. Do not download Cydia tweaks and third-party apps you are not sure in because the bad tweak can cause you to restore and lose your status and all the iOS 8.2 tweaks you got. This is not as easy as it seems because there are not many programs that support this firmware yet. With the official release arriving soon, devs are working on this.

Hackers are also working on their tool and trying to improve it to support the public iOS 8.2 release which should be unveiled by mid-March.
