Update: Taig can jailbreak up to iOS 8.2 beta versions. Although Apple has already released the 8.2 version for which we are waiting for the updated news from Taig or Pangu team. On the other hand if we talk about Pangu tool to jailbreak 8.3 or 8.2 still there is no hope and nothing new has come after the availability of jailbreak tool for 8.1 from Pangu team.
Immediately after the release of iOS 8.1.3 by Apple today on 28-January-2015, it was revealed that Apple has already patched the exploits that were used by TaiG jailbreak tool for 8.1.2 and now iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak is not available.
If you are a jailbreaker we recommend you to keep away from the upgradation to 8.1.3, otherwise if you are willing to try and download 8.1.3 you can check our pages for downloading iOS for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
This could be a situation in which most of users have fallen especially when they have already upgraded to 8.1.3 using the OTA option. If you are looking for a tool to jailbreak 8.1.3 we recommend you to immediately downgrade from 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2 because Apple will stop signing the existing jailbreakable version after which you must be in desparate situation until the release of jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3.
Currently the working jailbreaks for iOS 8 are TaiG and Pangu and current versions are not compatible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3. But we believe that the way teams has jailbroken previous version they will be able to jailbreak 8.1.3 as well and we expect a quick response after the stable release of iOS 8.1.3.
We on this page shall keep you updated about the next development related to the availability of jailbreak tool for iOS 8.1.3 or any other later versions.
