Jailbreakers: iOS 8.2 beta 2 and iOS 8.2 beta 1 are no longer being signed

We’ve some bad news for users who are looking to jailbreak their device. Apple has stopped signing iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2 firmware files.

This means that the workaround that allowed users with devices on iOS 8.1.3 to upgrade their device to iOS 8.2 beta 1 and iOS 8.2 beta 2, and then use TaiG jailbreak or PPJailbreak to jailbreak their device will no longer work, as you won’t be able to restore or update your device with iOS 8.2 beta 2 or beta 1.

Apple not only releases new software updates, that fixes the vulnerabilities used by the jailbreaks, it also stops signing the older iOS firmware file, which prevents users from downgrading back to the older iOS version that can be jailbroken. So it doesn’t come as a surprise, as we were expecting Apple to stop signing the old beta versions as well.

This means that there is no way to jailbreak your device on iOS 8.1.3, which had killed the TaiG and PP Jailbreak.

So given the current situation, users who have already jailbroken their device should be very careful while installing jailbreak tweaks as a bad tweak could easily force you to restore your device, which would mean that you will lose the jailbreak and all the tweaks installed on your device.

With release of iOS 8.2 imminent, it remains to be seen if the TaiG team will release a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 soon.
