There has been a lot of speculation recently about the status of iOS 8.2 jailbreak. Rumors about a release have been circulating as well but no tool has been released as yet by TaiG, the team that was behind the iOS 8.1.1 and iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak. It was even rumored at one point that TaiG would release the iOS 8.2 jailbreak at the 2015 Mobile Security Summit it organized in Beijing, China. Now the team itself has issued an official status update for the much awaited jailbreak.
Popular jailbreak developers Comex, Chronic, P0sixninja and Pimskeks were all in attendance at the 2015 Mobile Security Summit. Comex did confirm yesterday that TaiG did not release an iOS 8.2 jailbreak at the summit as rumored.
In its official response the TaiG team says that while it’s working to release the iOS 8.2 jailbreak tool as soon as possible, it didn’t release anything at the Mobile Security Summit on March 27th. “Any information outside of TaiG Jailbreak Team official news channel should not be trusted,” the team says.
People who are searching for this tool should now keep in mind that there hasn’t been an official release. If you do come across some website claiming to have the tool it’s probably going to be malware. Best to stay away from it.
We’ll definitely update you when TaiG finally releases the iOS 8.2 jailbreak tool.
