How To Jailbreak iOS 8.4, 8.3 and 8.1.3 for Mac Computers
Recently Cydia Installer is upgraded by Saurik current update brings support for package downgrades. The update can be accessed from Cydia changes tab.
Here’s a look at what’s new in Cydia 1.1.23:
– Support Package Downgrades:
All too often, I release a new package, and find out during the first few hours after release that there was a serious regression :(. Even if I pull the new version, users who upgraded do not have a way to easily downgrade.
Now, not only will Cydia allow you to downgrade to the “current” version, but it also allows downgrading to any previous version that is available on the repository. Going forward, I will leave previous versions online for some time while users are able to sort out issues.
Find Extensions for Applications
This feature was directly inspired by UnlimApps, who released a Substrate extension for Cydia called TweakHub.
The idea: automatically determine what applications a Substrate extension is designed to modify, and use that to provide categorized lists based on the iOS applications you have installed.
This technique is exciting, as it does not rely on repositories and developers to manually tag packages (this never works out): most of this information is already picked up automatically by Cydia’s “whole package index” :D.
(Oh, if it isn’t yet clear why UnlimApps wanted this feature: they develop a number of app-specific extensions ;P.)
Clearing Caches Could Kill Cydia
A user reported a situation where they ran out of disk space, iOS cleared their caches, and then Cydia wouldn’t run.
Below is the procedure on how to jailbreak iOS 8.4, 8.3 and 8.1.3 on iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, iPod Touch 5G, iPad Air 2, Air, 4, 3, 2, Mini. The tutorial is based upon the latest release of TaiG v2.3.0 for 8.4 jailbreak.
You can jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 up to 8.4 easily using below tutorial on any compatible device. We recommend that you make sure your computer is running latest version of iTunes.
TaiG Jailbreak Tool V2.3.0 integrates Cydia 1.1.19, which is perfectly compatible of iOS 8.3-8.4; removes setreuid patch.
For users who have jailbroken their devices with TaiG Jailbreak Tool V2.0.0, please update TaiG 8.1.3-8.x Untether through TaiG source (apt.taig.com) or 3K source (apt.3kzhushou.com). There is no need to jailbreak again.For the latest information, please follow @taig_jailbreak on Twitter or install 3K Assistant from Cydia.
Please backup your data before jailbreak because of its unique characteristics.
Please turn off passcode and Find My iPhone before jailbreaking.

TaiG Jailbreak V2.3.0 supports iOS 8.1.3-iOS 8.4 untethered jailbreak. Currently iOS 8.4 is relatively stable. So we strongly recommend you to update your device to iOS 8.4 with TaiG Pro before jailbreak.
