    Good morning
    IOS 8.1.1 has been jailbroken by the Chinese team TaiG, it is currently available only in Chinese But there is a video available on idownloadblog.com which shows it being installed on an iPhone. Looks like the devs are going to be busy this weekend working on tweaks. Is this a record for the fastest jailbreak?

    The driving force of iOS 8.1.1 upgrades was for a wifi fix, which wasn't implemented for all devices since majority of users still experience the wifi issue with 8.1.1 among other things, so even with it jailbroken, it's no different from jailbreaking iOS 8.1. And because 8.1 is still being signed, there's no practicality in jailbreaking iOS 8.1.1. That and TaiG doesn't exactly have the shiniest of reputations with legality, and the resources used are sketchy at best.

    I'm guessing this is the fix mentioned for jailbroken devices. You have to give up AirDrop and Direct AirPlay; which is probably a lot less painful than slow wi-fi. Fortunately for me, I'm not experiencing this problem. Probably because I'm on an Apple router, and don't have a compatible iMac.

    Here is the part relevant to iOS 8.

    It makes sense for ipad2 users. Because 8.1.1 fixes ipad2 performance issues which were introduced in 8.1

    It's selectively, not a universal fix.

    OK so I decided to go to 8.1.1 and re jailbreak (don't ask). The TiaG jailbreak went flawlessly, my Pad seems more responsive and battery life seems slightly better over Pangu. I don't use a lot of tweaks but everything I do use is working well so far. Also boot times are much improved.

    An English version, too! Excellent! :)


    PS: Jailbreak of an old iPhone 4s worked without a hitch. The whole process seemed a lot faster than with Pangu.
