iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.1.2 have been jailbroken just after 2 weeks of its release by apple. Like the iOS 8 jailbreak, this one came out of nowhere as well. The only difference is that this has been done by the TaiG team, not Pangu. TaiG last came into news for their piracy app that came with the evad3rs jailbreak last year.
Another thing you should know is that the jailbreak iOS 8.1.1 tool is currently only available for windows. The famous jailbreaker ‘MuscleNerd’ essentially confirms the jailbreak is legitimate here, he does warn that folks should wait a few days “just in case.” TaiG does not have a track record in releasing widely-available jailbreaks, so of course concerns of stability and safety are going to pop up. Proceed with caution.
The new Jailbreak is compatible with all devices running iOS 8-8.1.1. Before you jailbreak your device it is better to backup your device. A fresh restore to iOS 8.1.1 is also essential. Follow the below steps provided by iDownloadblog.com.
Step 1: Download the TaiG tool from the TaiG website and extract its contents to the desktop
Step 2: Ensure that iTunes is installed and plug your device into your computer and make sure that iTunes recognizes it
Step 3: Restore your iPhone to iOS 8.1.1 (this tool can also jailbreak iOS 8.0, iOS 8.0.2, iOS 8.1)
Step 4: Make sure that Find My iPhone is turned off in Settings → iCloud
Step 5: Make sure that your passcode is disabled in Settings → Touch ID & Passcode
Step 6: Enable AirPlane mode via Control Center
Step 7: Right click on the TaiGJBreak_1006.exe tool and select Run as Administrator, followed by Yes
Step 8: Make sure the TaiG tool recognizes your iOS device, uncheck the second box but keep Cydia checked, and then click the green jailbreak button
Step 9: Let the jailbreak progress until the tool states that the jailbreak is complete (you’ll see a smiley face)
Step 10: Once your iPhone reboots, you should see the Cydia app on your Home screen
It is reported to be a very easy jailbreak. If you’re looking for further help you could also refer to their video.
