How to Jailbreak iOS 8.3 on iPhone 6 / 6 Plus, iPad Air 2
Before you Begin:
- Jailbreaking your device is not recommended by Apple and it may void the warranty of your device
- Backup all your important data before you start the process
- Download iOS 8.3 and do a fresh restore (recommended)
- Make sure you are running iTunes 12.0.1 – NOT 12.1
Step 1: Download the jailbreak tool for Windows: TaiGJBreak_EN_2000.zip and unzip the downloaded file.
Step 2: On your device, disable the passcode / Touch ID. To do this:
- Launch Settings on your device

TaiG will detect the connected device and show you the following options:
Will install the DEBs below during jailbreak:

- 3K Assistant | 2.3.0
Fix the error: Apple driver hasn’t been found. Please download and install iTunes.
