TaiG warns jailbreakers not to use ‘leaked’ versions of the jailbreak tool

Some of you may (or may not) know, there are ‘leaked’ versions of the TaiG jailbreak tool flying around the interwebs, and apparently they fix the ‘getting stuck at 20%’ issues, which was quite a big problem in the official 2.0.0 release, found here. But TaiG has warned jailbreakers not to use the leaked versions, due to them being ‘betas’ or ‘internal testing’ versions only. Full story after the jump.

Firstly, TaiG released a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 – 8.3 on Tuesday 23rd June. Though it didn’t come without some problems, one of the issues that many users faced was getting an error around 20% (or 60%) into the jailbreak process. This meant restoring/rebooting/trying again, which is usually a pain in my opinion.

Another issue with the official TaiG release is that it doesn’t have Cydia Substrate included as it hasn’t been updated yet.

Anyway, the main point of this article is to advise jailbreakers to stay away from these leaked versions, no matter how desperate you may be to jailbreak, stay away. There’s too many hoops to jump through to get everything somewhat working. Some users have reported apps disappearing after using the leaked versions of the TaiG jailbreak tool.

If you’re adament on trying the leaked versions, im sure you can find it online somewhere, but we won’t be posting a ‘how-to’ on this, it may work fine for some people now but down the line im pretty sure that you’ll be seeing more problems than you can shake a stick at.

Im personally going to wait for an updated official release of the TaiG jailbreak tool before I take the plunge, I advise you guys to do the same.
