After iOS 8.4.1 release, What can you do to ensure long-lasting Cydia Jailbreak
iOS 8.4.1 has released. Now there is no doubt, TaiG & PP tool for jailbreak iOS 8.4 – 8.1.3 has been patched by the Apple with that latest iOS update. So, what can we do right now to save Cydia jailbreak on our device? Here are things you must known at this moment..
1. Stay away from iOS 8.4.1
If you are on still iOS 8.4, do NOT update to iOS 8.4.1 & stay there. Cydia currently not available for latest iOS 8.4.1 & it may takes few weeks/months for the next jailbreak release. iOS 8.4 jailbroken users enjoy with Cydia on your device. iOS 8.4 users still not get Cydia for their devices, follow bellow tutorial to get it..
2. Downgrade iOS 8.4.1 back to iOS 8.4 right now
If you already have installed iOS 8.4.1 on your device, downgrade to iOS 8.4 right now. Then you can get Cydia using TaiG or PP jailbreak tools for your device. Please hurry-up, Apple is still signing iOS 8.4 but they will recently stop signing for iOS 8.4. Note that : you are only able to downgrade to iOS 8.4 until Apple signing iOS 8.4.
3. Upgrade to iOS 8.4 right now
If you are jailbroken or non jailbroken on early iOS 8 versions(iOS 8, 8.0.2, 8.1, 8.1.1, 8.1.2, 8.1.3, 8.2 & 8.3), This is the time for upgrade your device manually to iOS 8.4 & jailbreak/re-jailbreak using latest TaiG or PP jailbreak tools with latest Cydia 1.1.23 install. Please do not try to install iOS 8.4 via OTA. Download appropriate iOS 8.4 IPSW file for your device separately on your computer & restore with iTunes to install iOS 8.4. Don’t remember that, you only allow this thing also until Apple is signing for iOS 8.4
In addition, recommend to install following things after jailbreak on your device to prevent accidental restore to iOS 8.4.1 with lost Cydia.
- Download & install Cydia Impactor :This allows you to unjailbreak & restore your device without updating iOS version to latest. So, if something wrong with Cydia jailbreak on your device, you can restore your device using Cydia Impactor & jailbreak again.
- Install OpenSSH : This allows user to restore their device to near stock firmware version without losing jailbreak status. This is called semi-restore & during the process it removes all Cydia tweaks on your device. If you got reboot loop issue due to some bad tweak, you can use OpenSSH to restore your device & remove that tweak without losing Cydia jailbreak. Very important- you should change the root password of your idevice right after installing OpenSSH to prevent authorize remote access to your device.
Ok. These are the important point to enjoy long lasting Cydia jailbreak with you device in current situation. If TaiG or PP update their tools for jailbreak iOS 8.4.1, things are changed.
