UPDATE : TaiG 2.3.0 Jailbreak Untethered For iOS 8.1.3-8.4 integrated with Cydia 1.1.19 and removes setreuid patch
TaiG has just pushed out a new update to both their iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool and untether package available on Cydia.
Now up to version 2.3.0, this update brings the recently released Cydia 1.1.19 bundled as part of initial jailbreak, as well as removes setreuid patch which is no longer needed now after Cydia’s 1.1.19’s ability to always run as “mobile” instead of “root”.
Here’s the official changelog :
Integrates Cydia 1.1.19, which is perfectly compatible of iOS 8.3-8.4; removes setreuid patch.
Earlier today, saurik had released Cydia 1.1.19 update, which allows it to run as “mobile” instead of “root”. This means that jailbreak tweaks and themes can modify Cydia, just the way they can modify iOS and other apps.
With Cydia 1.1.19 now out, TaiG has released version 2.3 of their iOS 8.1.2-8.4 untether, fully removing that awkward setreuid kernel patch!

We’re assuming that saurik made the change to allow the TaiG to remove the setreuid kernel patch that was included in TaiG 2.2.1 jailbreak.
You can download the latest version from our Jailbreak Tool page.
If you had problems jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad with TaiG jailbreak, then you can try again using TaiG 2.3 jailbreak tool.
Since the update for existing jailbroken devices is available on Cydia’s default Telesphoreo repo, you don’t need to add any other repositories or sources. Simply launch Cydia and let it load everything.Once loaded, search for TaiG 8.1.3-8.x Untether and update to the latest 2.3 version, as shown in the screenshot below.
If you need help jailbreaking your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with the TaiG jailbreak then you can follow our guide.
Unfortunately, the tool is still Windows-only, but we do have a TaiG iOS 8.4 Mac tutorial that uses a virtual machine.
