How to Un-jailbreak iOS To Stock Using Cydia Impactor

7/21/2015 06:59:00 PM - 0 comments

If you have ever wondered how to un-jailbreak your iOS device back to stock without updating to the latest version, this post is for you. Cydia Impactor has been released and it is for all those users with jailbroken devices. It allows you to restore iOS to stock setup without using the “Restore” functionality in iTunes, without updating your iPhone or iPad to the latest version of iOS firmware. It also helps to ensure that you don’t lose the ability to jailbreak your device on all the same versions of iOS.

In today’s post we have a step by step guide on how you can un-jailbreak iOS on your jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using Cydia Impactor. There are some important things that you need to be aware of first. Cydia Impactor is only compatible with iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.3. It will work with all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models except the brand new iPod Touch 6. It is also worth noting that currently this is a beta release of Cydia Impactor.

The first step of course will be to launch Cydia and install Cydia Impactor. Make sure that you backup all of your data to either iTunes or iCloud. The next thing you will need to do is turn off “Find my iPhone” from Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone. You will need to plug in your device and make sure that it is more than 50% charged. Once you have this done you will need to launch Cydia Impactor. Tap on “delete all data and unjailbreak device” which you will find at the bottom of the screen. Next tap on “delete all”.

The unjailbreak process will now begin and all that is left for you to do is be patient. You have to wait for the process to complete and this can take some time depending on how much data you have on your device and the number of jailbreak tweaks you have installed.

Once the process has completed, the jailbreak, all the data, and all of the settings will be completed removed from your device. It will go back to stock and the original setup that your device came with. You will be greeted with the familiar looking “hello” welcome screen of iOS from where you can set up your device and activate it again.

If you want to jailbreak your device again you can do it by using either the TaiG or PP jailbreaks that are available. Below is a great video tutorial that we found on un-jailbreaking so be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.

Jailbreak iOS 8.4 Now on PC and Mac With PP and TaiG

7/14/2015 03:14:00 PM - 0 comments

This week it's all about jailbreaks and fixes for those with Apple devices. Cydia has had an update too and with Cydia 1.1.23 came two major new features as well as some bug fixes. The TaiG jailbreak was updated to 2.4.2 to fix the "jailbreak stuck at 30% and 40%" issue that a lot of people were reporting. We also had the release of the GameBench report that compared Apple's iPhone 6 with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and it looks like the iPhone 6 outperforms in the high-end gaming benchmark test. A new report by Canaccord was also released that shows the Apple's iPhone now owns 92% of all smartphone market profits. All in all it has been a great week for idevice users and below is some more detailed information on these stories.

With the new version of Cydia, 1.1.23, users have the ability to downgrade packages to the last stable release and this can be done very easily. They can also downgrade to any previous version of the ssame package as long as it is available in the repository. This means that whenever a tweak causes issues, all you have to do is downgrade back to the older version. This can be done by tapping on Modify > Downgrade from the tweak's page on Cydia.

The Second major feature added to Cydia today is a tweaks discovery feature which is actually inspired by TweakHub. On the main Cydia page, you will now find a new option for “Find Extensions for Applications” which will basically present you a categorized list of all the possible Cydia Substrate based tweaks available in Cydia to customize or enhance the stock or App Store apps installed on your iPhone or iPad.

Apple has also released iTunes 12.2.1 for Mac and Windows. This version is packed with bug fixes and performance enhancements. You are probably aware that the previous version had some serious issues with iTunes Match and other features that were introduced with Apple Music. This new release promises to fix these issues.

The first iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool for Mac OS X was released today and it is called PP and this jailbreak comes from the Chinese team 25PP. PP jailbreak supports all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 8.4 all the way back to iOS 8.1.3. You can download the English version of PP jailbreak for Mac OS X which comes with Cydia 1.1.20 pre-installed. PP jailbreak requires a Mac running at least OS X version 10.7 or above to work.

If you are looking for a jailbreak for your iPhone or iPad, you now have a number of options avialable to you. You can use the TaiG jailbreak or the PP jailbreak depending on whether you have a PC or Mac.

Export Spotify Playlists And Import Into Apple Music The Easy Way With STAMP

7/09/2015 09:41:00 AM - 0 comments

Apple Music is here and it looks like it is going to be really popular. Looking at the figures for the uptake of iOS 8.4 and the estimated number of three-month free trials that have been applied for, it looks like Apple Music is not only here to stay, but it also going to disrupt the music streaming industry. We could very well see a lot of people moving from other streaming services such as Spotify and if you become one of them; it can now be made even easier thanks to a handy little AppleScript app called STAMP. With STAMP you can export your playlists from Spotify and import them into Apple Music. Below you will find out exactly how to do this.

The first thing you need to do is download and install the STAMP app from: stamp.hern.as. If you are doing this from your computer you may have to rick click on the app file and select “open” to bypass security settings for apps downloaded from sources that OS X doesn’t recognize. Alternatively you can head over to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and manually allow apps from untrusted sources to run on your Mac.

You will notice that STAMP comes with two main options. These are importing songs from a provided .CSV file or importing directly from Spotify using existing login credentials. You will need to select the Import songs directly from Spotify option. You will be asked to put in your Spotify login details. STAMP will then begin searching through the provided Spotify account and a new app overlay will provide a list of the content that it was able to pull from Spotify. You will then be able to select the content that you want from the list. All you have to do then is click on the “Parse” button.

You do have to make sure that iTunes is open on your computer and that you are logged in. You also have to make sure that you have created an Apple Music account so that the STAMP app can do all the hard work and adding all your favorite Spotify songs into your Apple Music library.

It is important to note that the free version of STAMP is limited to parsing 10 songs per session. If you want to parse an unlimited number of songs per session, you have to pay $5. If you do use STAMP to add your Spotify playlists to Apple Music please let us know what your experience was like in the comments below.

Jailbreak iOS 8.4 With TaiG v2.3 On iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, And More

7/07/2015 09:38:00 AM - 0 comments

With the release of iOS 8.4 we have also been treated to the an updated to the amazing TaiG jailbreak software. TaiG v2.3 jailbreak for iOS 8.4 is now available for all those who wish to upgrade to the latest and greatest Apple firmware. With iOS 8.4 you also get Apple Music which is proving to be extremely popular. The TaiG v2.3 jailbreak for iOS 8.4 is available for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, all iPads and the iPod Touch 5. You can download it now and be sure to check out the video at the end of this post to see it in action.

The first beta of iOS 8.4 was released back in April and later that month, i0n1c became the first person to jailbreak this new firmware. He demonstrated his jailbreak, which probably used different exploits to the ones being used by TaiG, on an iPhone 6 that was running iOS 8.4 beta 1.

At the WWDC this year Apple announced that they would be releasing Apple Music as part of the final version of iOS 8.4 which would be available to the public on the 30th of June. This has come to pass and iOS 8.4 was released with support for Apple Music, Beats 1 and more. TaiG had released a jailbreak for firmwares up to iOS 8.3 the week before iOS 8.4 went public and a lot of people in the jailbreak community were worries that Apple would patch the exploits being used before the final release of iOS 8.4. We are delighted to be able to say that this didn’t actually happen and a mere couple of hours after the public release, iOS 8.4 was jailbroken.

There was some drama to be had and PP jailbreak by 25PP was the first to release the jailbreak for iOS 8.4. TaiG then accused them of stealing the code and releasing the jailbreak based on TaiG’s exploit. An hour after the release of PP jailbreak, TaiG released an updated version of their tool v2.2.0 and later 2.3.0 which would jailbreak iOS 8.4. Like all previous releases of the TaiG jailbreak, TaiG for iOS 8.4 supports all iOS devices including the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, 4s, iPad 4/3/2, iPad mini 3/2/1, iPad Air 2/1 and iPod touch 5. The main thing with this jailbreak is that it offers support for iOS 8.4 but it is also backwards compatible which means it will jailbreak iOS 8.1.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.3 too.

Below you will find a video tutorial that shows the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.4 in action. Be sure to check it out and leave your thoughts and feedback in the comments below.

Jailbreakers Beware: iOS 8.4 Release Is Hours Away, Here’s What You Need To Know

6/30/2015 12:00:00 PM - 0 comments

Today will see the official release of iOS 8.4 and with it you will get Apple Music along with a number of fixes for issues like the notorious messages app crashing bug, slow Wi-Fi networking, and other security fixes. Now before you rush off to upgrade your firmware, we want to tell you what you need to know if you are using a jailbreak.

Last week, TaiG released an untethered jailbreak for all devices running iOS 8.1.3 right the way through to iOS 8.3. While it is unlikely that Apple will be able to patch these exploits that quickly when the final release of iOS 8.4 is due so soon, we still haven’t received official confirmation that TaiG’s exploits will be working on iOS 8.4 yet. The Chinese TaiG team haven’t confirmed anything either.

If the iOS 8.3 exploits do work on iOS 8.4, which we hope they do, TaiG 2.x will most likely be updated to support the latest firmware. But just in case it doesn’t work, jailbreakers will have to wait a long time before the next public jailbreak becomes available again.

If you are already running a jailbreak on your device and you want to keep it, then you probably already know what to do; DO NOT update to iOS 8.4 until official confirmation has been received that TaiG is working on iOS 8.4. We will let you all know as soon as we receive confirmation. Also while you are jailbroken it would do no harm to save SHSH blobs for iOS 8.3. SHSH blobs may not be useful for downgrading today but in the future they might be something that you will rely on so it is worth taking the time to save your SHSH blobs now. You can use TinyUmbrella to do this.

If you are running a firmware that is older than iOS 8.3 then we recommend that you upgrade to iOS 8.3 now and jailbreak it using the new TaiG 2.0 untethered jailbreak. Even if you don’t plan on jailbreaking right now, it is still a good idea to upgrade. The iOS 8.3 firmware version has plenty of security and bug fixes compared to older versions and it is the latest jailbreakable firmware. Once iOS 8.4 is released, Apple will stop signing iOS 8.3 after which you won’t be able to update to 8.3. Don’t forget to save your SHSH blobs once you upgrade to iOS 8.3 also and this again can be done using TinyUmbrella.

That’s it for today but remember folks, if you have a jailbroken device, don’t update to iOS 8.4 until you receive official confirmation that there is a working public jailbreak for it.

Tweaks Available on Cydia with iOS 8.3 Jailbreak

6/25/2015 11:32:00 AM - 0 comments

On Tuesday we saw the release of a brand new iOS 8.3, 8.2, 8.1.3 jailbreak by TaiG. This is fantastic news for all those people who have been stuck without their favorite Cydia tweaks. They have waited patiently and now the weight is over as they rush to update their firmware and jailbreak all over again. It’s not just as simple as this, and those who update their jailbreak will want to know that their favorite tweaks and apps are going to be compatible.

The TaiG team have just released this new jailbreak that supports iOS 8.1.3 all the way through to iOS 8.3. Because this is a brand new jailbreak there could be a short waiting period before all the tweaks on Cydia get updated. This means that at least in the short term, jailbreakers using iOS 8.3 may find some unexpected behaviour when using certain tweaks and apps.

To help you out, we have a list of tweaks that have been tested with iOS 8.3 and have been proven to be compatible. If you use this list it will help you to avoid those unwanted crashes and resprings that are often caused by a tweak that isn’t quite ready for the latest version of iOS. We would recommend that you take a look at this list and make sure that the tweaks you want are supported before updating to iOS 8.3 because you don’t want to risk taking a functioning jailbroken iOS device and bricking it by updating a few days too early.

The release of TaiG 2.0 jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 to 8.3 is massive and we expect that tweak developers will be working around the clock to make sure their apps and tweaks are updated and compatible with all versions of iOS. Once Saurik has updated Substrate for iOS 8.3 you can expect a lot more jailbreak tweaks to start working on the latest firmware.

Here is our list of proven and tested iOS 8.3 compatible tweaks on the Cydia store.

  • Bridge
  • BytaFont2
  • CocoaTop
  • CrashReporter
  • Disc Pie

Jailbreak iOS 8.3, 8.2, 8.1.3 With Taig 2.0 On iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, iPad, More

6/23/2015 09:11:00 AM - 0 comments

We have some amazing news to share today that we know you are going to love as much as we do. It has come totally out of the blue but TaiG 2.0 is here and with it you can now jailbreak iOS 8.3, 8.2 and 8.1.3 on your iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, iPads, and iPod touch. It is currently only available for Windows but it is still fantastic news and news we are so happy to be sharing with you today.

We really weren’t expecting this but we are so delighted it has happened. For those who don’t know, here is the breakdown in the timeline of how this new jailbreak for iOS 8.3 came about.

Jailbreak exploits that were used in previous versions of Pangu, TaiG and PP jailbreak tools for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch were patched by Apple when they released iOS 8.1.3 back in January of 2015. When Apple released iOS 8.2 they patched even more exploits and these were the ones that were needed to make Pangu8, TaiG and PP jailbreaks work their magic. In March 2015, the TaiG team hosted the Mobile Security Summit in Beijing where they updated everyone on the status of their jailbreak progress. Things were looking very bleak and we weren’t sure if we were ever going to see a jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 and upwards.

When Apple released iOS 8.3 in April, they patched yet another exploit that was being used by TaiG. Things really seemed very bleak until the release of the first beta of iOS 8.4 back in mid-April. Immediately after its release, i0n1c came out with a video that showed his jailbreak for iOS 8.4 working on an iPhone 6. Things were really starting to look up and we were all getting excited again. Then in May it was reported that Apple was working on a new security system called “Rootless” that would make it very difficult to create a jailbreak for iOS 9.

Right before WWDC, another Chinese team Pangu successfully demoed an iOS 8.3 jailbreak at MOSEC which they were planning to release as soon as Apple rolled out iOS 8.4 to the public. At WWDC earlier this month, Apple released iOS 9 beta 1 and iOS 8.4 beta 4. TaiG maintained that they were concentrating on an iOS 9 jailbreak and has no plans for an iOS 8.3 or 8.4 jailbreak.

Shortly after iOS 9 beta 1 was released Chinese jailbreak team “Keen” along with the help of Pangu were said to be working on a jailbreak for iOS 9. TaiG also claimed they were only working on an iOS 9 jailbreak. You can imagine our surprise when this morning completely out of nowhere, TaiG surprised everyone by releasing TaiG 2.0 for jailbreaking all devices on iOS 8.3, iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3. Support is available for all iOS devices including iPhone 6 plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPad Air 2, iPad Air 1, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 1, and iPod touch 5.

You can watch a video tutorial on how the TaiG 2.0 jailbreak works below.
