iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, or iPhone 4, on iOS 8.0 to iOS 8.1.1 (8.1 beta 1 and beta 2) can now be customized by jailbreaking using Taig Mac.
Pangu8 is a tool released by the Evad3rs Dev-Team to jailbreak the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV.
The Evad3rs suggest a full restore before the jailbreaking.
Before you start the jailbreaking process remove any passcode lock on your device (you can add it back when you are done). If there was made an over-the-air (OTA) update, it requires a full backup and then a re-restore.
Connect the iPhone to a computer and perform a manual backup of your iPhone using iTunes following these instructions:
- launch iTunes;
- make the USB connection between your iPhone and the computer, select it from the iTunes sidebar or from the top right of the screen if you got the new layout;
- on the Summary tab click the large Back Up Now button;
- the status of your backup will be shown on the progress bar;
- the backup date and time will then be updated;
- all the previous backups on your device can be seen in Preferences from the iTunes menu;
- the backups are shown in the Device tab.
Using Pangu Download Links, download the latest version of TaiG into a Pwnage folder that you’ve previously created on the desktop.
Download the latest iOS 8.1.2 firmware files for your device into the Pwnage folder.
Before performing the jailbreaking make a full restore on your device.
Use direct iPhone Firmware Download Links.
In the Pwnage folder double click the cydia download 8.1.2 file to mount it.
Drag the mounted dmg TaiG application into the Pwnage folder on the desktop.
From your dock launch iTunes.
Select the USB connected iPhone to the computer from the left sidebar or the top right corner of the window.
Click the Restore iPhone... button while pressing and holding the Option key.
In the popup window, from the Pwnage folder created on the desktop select your iPhone firmware ipsw and click Open.
Click the Restore button when you will be asked to confirm your Restore.
Right click (or control+click) the Pangu app icon from the Pwnage folder after a complete restore, then launch the application by selecting Open from the contextual menu. If prompted to confirm, click the Open button again.
Before you click the Jailbreak button, there should not be any lock screen passcodes on the device.
The app will retrieve information from the device to generate and upload jailbreak data, inject TaiG app 1 and 2, configuring system 1 and 2 and reboot.
Unlock your device and tap the new 'pangu 8' app icon just once. The app will open and immediately close.
Pangu will reboot the device, modify rootfs, and complete!
iPhone will reboot with Cydia on the SpringBoard! Then go to https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iclarified/ to download the iClarified app for your Mac or Apple devices.
