If you updated to the recently released iOS 8.1.3, then you probably know that this firmware cannot be jailbroken using the TaiG tool. Apple has successfully patched the exploits that were used by TaiG to attain a jailbreak on iOS 8.1.1 and later. Now if you have decided that you want your jailbreak back, then you’ll have to downgrade to iOS 8.1.2. Luckily for you, Apple is still signing iOS 8.1.2.
To have a successful jailbreak, you will have to downgrade from iOS 8.1.3 to iOS 8.1.2. You’ll also need to say goodbye to all the bugfixes and improvements that iOS 8.1.3 has brought.
The downgrade process is quite simple and will only take a few minutes to complete. Make sure to create a backup, just in case something goes wrong.
