How to untether jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 with Taig
Step 1. Download TaiG jailbreak from the above download link.
Step 2. Enable Airplane mode, Disable Passcode from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone.
Step 3. Connect your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to computer and start TaiG jailbreak tools. You should be presented with a screen like the one seen below.
Step 4. As soon as TaiG runs make sure it detects your device and its iOS version. If it does then simply uncheck the second tick box while keeping the first one checked. This is to get rid of the sketchy TaiG store. FYI, the first box installs Cydia.
Step 5. Afterwards hit the big green button that we assume says ‘Jailbreak’ in Chinese. Let the tool do its job. Your iPhone or iPad will reboot after which Cydia will appear on the homescreen. Launch Cydia and start downloading your favorite tweaks.
