An iOS 8.3 jailbreak has finally been released. Here’s how to jailbreak iOS 8.3 on your iPhone or iPad.
It’s been a while since we last saw a new jailbreak. In fact, the latest jailbreak for iOS 8.1 was released in December, so considering we’re almost halfway through the year, it might be hard to believe that this is actually the first jailbreak of 2015.
In any case, jailbreaking is getting more and more popular nowadays, allowing users to hack into iOS with the help of developers and tweak settings that Apple wouldn’t otherwise allow you to change. You can do all sorts of things like setup settings that do things iOS doesn’t normally do, and even change the UI to something more suited to your taste.
Now an iOS 8.3 jailbreak is out and about, users can finally take advantage of the latest version of iOS and jailbreak their devices at the same time. Here’s how to jailbreak iOS 8.3 on your iPhone or iPad.

Still, there are a few things you’ll want to do before jailbreaking your device in iOS 8.3.
First off, it’s important to back up your iPhone or iPad before you dig deep. Follow this backup guide to backup your entire iOS device, so if something goes wrong, you can easily revert to stable status and avoid causing any headaches that may occur.
After backing up, you will want to update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 8.3. Here is a guide on updating your jailbroken device (running iOS 8.1.2) to iOS 8.3. This will unjailbreak your iPhone or iPad, but don’t worry, we will jailbreak it again when it’s updated to iOS 8.3. The process is pretty simple anyway, since you just open iTunes and update your device to iOS 8.3 as you would any time, because it doesn’t really matter whether your iPhone or iPad is jailbroken or not.
Next, you’ll want to disable passcode lock on your device and disable Find My iPhone. For the password, go to your password to confirm and re-enter your password. To disable Find My iPhone, go to and turn it off. You must enter your Apple ID password to confirm.
It’s also a good idea to turn off WiFi as it has been reported to cause problems with jailbreaking. We haven’t had any issues, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
At this point, you’re all set to go and you can start the jailbreak process.
How to Jailbreak iOS 8.3?
To start jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad, go to TaiG’s website and download jailbreak tool. Plug your iPhone or iPad into computer while downloading. After the download is complete, open the .ZIP file and double-click the .EXE file that appears.
The jailbreak tool will open and you will see two checkboxes. One is for Cydia which can’t be flagged and then . It’s mostly just bloatware so it’s a good idea to go ahead and uncheck it.
From there, just click the button and the jailbreak process will begin. You don’t need to do anything else from here. Finally, the jailbreak tool will say the jailbreak was successful and you’re on your way.
If you get a message saying your storage is almost full after jailbreaking, simply open Cydia and allow the file system to boot and reboot. After that, you should no longer receive the message.
Again, Cydia will install and work on the iOS 8.3 jailbreak, but the tweaks will not work as Cydia has not yet been updated to support iOS 8.3. However, this will happen very soon and you will be able to update Cydia from within the app once it supports iOS 8.3.
UPDATE: The iOS 8.3 jailbreak has been updated and Cydia should now work properly.
