You can already jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

You can already jailbreak iOS 8.4 on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
Well that didn't take long, did it? Apple has only just thrown out iOS 8.4 featuring its all new Apple Music streaming service, and already, Chinese jailbreaking firm TaiG has confirmed that it can be jailbroken. The revered team behind a number of high-profile iOS 8-related breaks says it will drop the new tool later on today, at which point, thousands if not millions will embark upon Cydia and its cauldron of tweaks. 

The exploits that made iOS 8.3 jailbreaking a possibility have not been patched by Apple, which means that TaiG can make a couple of tiny adjustments and roll out a rebooted version of its jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4. PP Jailbreak, another team out of China, has apparently stolen and repackaged some of TaiG's old work and brought out an iOS 8.4 jailbreak. But given TaiG's long-standing reputation for delivering quality jailbreaks, anybody looking to jump on board may want to wait an hour or so:


It's rare, particularly in today's world, for a jailbreak to follow a software update so closely. In the past, fans of Cydia tweaks and general iOS mods were treated to speedy updates, but through the past couple of generations, Apple has sought to make things more difficult for hackers. TaiG, along with Pangu, has risen from obscurity to deliver a number of the more recent jailbreaks, and as with several past iOS 8.x breaks, TaiG has once again delivered the goods. 

We expect the tool to support iOS 8.1.3 through to iOS 8.4, and as the new software is rolled out, we'll have the details and step-by-step instructions right here.

Big companies really should hire more of the people that hack their stuff, clearly these people are brilliant.

Just jailbroke my 6 Plus on 8.3 through Parallels (Windows 10) and everything worked perfectly. Took me less than 10 minutes to do it. Have fun everyone! :)

Got all my tweaks up and running. If anyone needs help, just ask away. Btw, I did it with my Mac.

I'm so.happy i.font have to.jailbreak anymore. All the emulators I use to download on Cydia, I don't have to do anymore. Gosh, I remember how after jailbreaking, it would take more than 4 hours to get my device back how it was.
