BiG Thanks for you..! Chinese jailbreak developers. You were the hero of Apple idevices users in past year. Get Cydia for those new idevices with Cydia iOS 8 is impossible without Pangu and TaiG jailbreak. Those are the great jailbreak software in year 2014 as well as the iOS jailbreak history.

That’s how Cydia jailbreak was performed during the last year. Apple going to launch their newest & biggest firmware update, iOS 8.2 in new year 2015. We will be able to do Cydia iOS 8.2 jailbreak with new or existing tool. Say Goodbye 2014 and keep your hops up about brighter 2015.
