In other hand, Apple will push out iOS 8.4 as soon as possible with a patch to Taig 2.1.3. It’s always better to jailbreak while the iOS version remains as latest and live.

Now most of jailbreak developers has updated their tweaks and apps to be compatible with iOS 8.3. So you’ll have lots of fun stuff on your device after jailbreak.

Rumors raised about Pangu is coming for Jailbreak iOS 8.3 – 8.4 within next few days
Yesterday Tools4Hack reported that the Pangu jailbreak team had a iOS 8.3 jailbreak demo at MOSEC (Mobile Security Summit). We got confirmed the news from a Pangu Jailbreak team member Daniel_4K’s page on Weibo. According to the report Pangu will release jailbreak too for iOS 8.3 as soon as Apple release iOS 8.4. Most probably Apple will release iOS 8.4 as soon as possible due to requirement of fixing current critical errors which exists on iOS 8.3. But some rumors says that Apple is going to introduce iOS 9 beta at WWDC keynote event and iOS 8.4 update will be there right after. Anyway we believe this could be happen any moment.
The original reports of Daniel_4K was in Japanese and the translation was not pretty good. Bet here is the translation of the original text for your reference.
“Speaking Pangu team got released and jailbreak tool type, so when released iOS 8.4 depending on developments in the coming days to jailbreak you can! On the 8th (Japan time 9, 2:00) if is the official release date for iOS 8.4 understood should be, so for the time being to wait it out. It is.”
We can’t made an exact statement that iOS 8.3 jailbreak will release on this Monday, but most probably it could be. Also we found an strong proof of iOS 8.4 beta jailbreak. Just check the video below for Jailbroken iOS 8.4 device Cydia preview.
I’m not going to run into this video too much because the info source is not reputed enough. I will update more details about iOS 8.4 jailbreak once get confirmed everything to be clear and trusted.
The jailbreak industry is silent since few months. We have summed up what we have about Jailbreak iOS 8.3 so far. Apple released iOS 8.3 in last April which already gone more than two months. Unfortunately we haven’t any good news about iOS 8.3 jailbreak. No any reputed iOS hacker or jailbreak developer team has announced about upcoming release of iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool. But we know it might happen anytime.
Apparently Apple has patched up lots of security exploits when they release iOS 8.3. Well known jailbreak developer MuscleNerd also had mentioned that Apple patched up 39 known security exploits between iOS 7.0 to 8.1.3 within last year. That’s a big shot on whole jailbreak industry which makes the iOS system much perfect and really tough to jailbreak. One of the baddest move was patching all exploits used by Taig and Pangu. That blew off both great tool away.
When the iOS 8 released initially it didn’t take much longer to get jailbroken. But the story has become vise versa when it comes to iOS 8.3. We didn’t see any positive movement of jailbreak teams since Apple rolled out iOS 8.1.3.
Is it possible to jailbreak iOS 8.3?
of course yes. We already know that Steffan Esser or i0n1c has jailbroken iOS 8.3 but he kept his work for himself. Anyway, that’s a big release because at least we know Jailbreak iOS 8.3 is possible and only thing remains is someone have to develop a good tool for it. You can watch i0n1c’s iOS 8.4 jailbreak video here, if you were not aware about it.
Do we have until iOS 8.4 for a new jailbreak?
Although Apple hasn’t released iOS 8.4 to the public, iOS 8.4 definitely will be more stable than iOS 8.3. Because there are several known bugs must fixed such as remote iDevice restarting sms. In other hand, jailbreak developers also should wait for iOS 8.4 although they already have a new jailbreak tool. Apple won’t get chance to patch the exploits until iOS 9 then. Some devices will have a chance to remain jailbroken forever if they didn’t supported for iOS 9.
Jailbreak iOS 8.3 is become much harder as Apple has made lots of security fixed in iOS 8.3 release. Apple also has patched an Jailbreak exploit according to renowned Jailbreak developer @Musclenerd. He also advised all jailbreakers to avoid iOS 8.3 update. You can check the complete security fixes list on iOS 8.3 here.
Jailbreak iOS 8.3 by TaiG or Pangu
They still seems out of league. Only a less hope on them about Jailbreak iOS 8.3. But we personally believe that is any known exploit is patched up on iOS 8.3, then someone can easily use that exploit to create a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 because there’s no point of preserving that exploit.
Scam iOS 8.3 jailbreak sites
There are lots of scam website about iOS 8.3 jailbreak. The real jailbreak will release by an professional for Free. There are no iOS 8.3 jailbreak tools yet out there. Simply run away if somebody asks for payment for jailbreak iOS 8.3.
