It’s been a while since we heard anything from the TaiG jailbreak team who gave us the iOS 8.1.x jailbreak. Late last week, the team posted an announcement on their website regarding the iOS 8.2 jailbreak.
Apple fixed the vulnerabilities used in the iOS 8.1.2 jailbreak by TaiG in iOS 8.1.3 and also the latest betas of iOS 8.2 seem to have fixed them. There were rumors flying around that the team has released an iOS 8.2 jailbreak, however, they are all false. The team confirmed that an iOS 8.2 jailbreak is in the works, but they’re not sure when it’ll be finished for release.
Last week, during the 2015 Mobile Security Summit in Beijing, China, several top jailbreakers got together and discussed about future jailbreaks. We’re not sure what were discussed, but here’s the full announcement from the TaiG team:
On 27th March, TaiG Jailbreak Team held the 2015 Mobile Security Summit (MSS) in China Beijing. The purpose of this summit was to create a platform for world top jailbreak developer to have an open communication, and then prepare for the better untethered jailbreak in the future.
The development and release of a jailbreak tool was restricted to several factors, however what TaiG Jailbreak Team wanted is to release the jailbreak of iOS 8.2 as soon as possible.
But at present, rumors about TaiG Jailbreak Team has already released the iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Tool were spreading in the internet. Any information outside of TaiG Jailbreak Team official news channel should not be trusted.
At last, thanks for focus and supports from media and users. To you all, we will do our best to go forward!

So yeah, anyone claiming to have an untethered iOS 8.2 jailbreak is a fraud, do not download any such tools or apps. The TaiG team is working on an iOS 8.2 jailbreak and will release one as soon as possible. We’ll let you know when it’s available.
