Apple just released iOS 8.4 on Tuesday morning and now, a few short hours later, there is already a jailbreak that’s publicly available. Taig, a team of iPhone hackers based in China, confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that the exploit utilized by its iOS 8.3 jailbreak had not been addressed by Apple in iOS 8.4. As a result, the team was able to repackage the same hack it used for iOS 8.3 to jailbreak iOS 8.4.
Now, the team has released an updated version of its jailbreak software to the public.
If you found a bunch of new jailbreak tweaks in our post earlier on Tuesday and were upset that you’d have to sacrifice them in order to try Apple Music, it’s time to turn that frown upside down. Jailbreaking iOS 8.4 is just as easy as 8.3 was using Taig’s software.
iPhone and iPad users interested in jailbreaking iOS 8.4 on their devices should he over to the Taig website and download the latest version of the team’s software. For complete instructions on how to use the software to jailbreak your device, visit this page.
And now, the obligatory warning: Jailbreaking your iPhone is probably a bad idea if you’re not a savvy user. Even if you are savvy, jailbreaking can still lead to irreversible problems, and it can void your warranty. Be careful.
