    TaiG 1.1.0 has been released, the website claims that they have a jailbreak for iOS 8.2 completed but it is not yet implemented in the current release and since 8.2 is still on the horizon that sounds like a good idea. I am still very pleased with the TaiG JB and it still seems slightly better than the Pangu IMHO YMMV.

    BTW: it is recommended that if you are on an earlier version of TaiG that you update to this one, it resolves some sandboxing issues, you'll need to add the TaiG repo to Cydia and download and install the update. Instructions can be found on idownloadblog.com.

    Yes - and sorry for the delay. I've updated the first post.

    Thanks for the "nudge." :)

    Updated the first post to mention Apple's release of iOS 8.1.2 - that is NOT currently jailbroken.

    Is it still possible to upgrade to 8.1.1?

    Yes, it is.

    But, now that doesn't matter. I was opening this thread to post that TaiG has released an updated version of their tool - and it jailbreaks iOS 8.1.2.

    So, I recommend you go ahead and upgrade to iOS 8.1.2 and jailbreak that.

    You can still put iOS 8.1.1 onto your iPad, but with the newest iOS being jailbreakable, I'd go with that.

    The first post has been updated to reflect this news.

    Just used the new version on an iPhone 6 upgraded to 8.1.2 and it worked flawlessly. Two thumbs up.

    Forgot to ask a question -- since the TaiG jailbreak installs the TaiG AFC2 tweak as part of the jailbreak, I assume that means I don't have to/should not install the regular AFC2 tweak as well?

    Correct; you do not have to install the AFC2 tweak.

    I've heard that others have uninstalled the TaiG version to not have AFC2 or to install the one created by saurik. I've not tried to mess with AFC2...

    Still, the one that comes with TaiG is fine, as far as I know.

    I didn't see this app listed on the list on the first page, but iKeywi 3 is out and works with iOS 8.1.2 for the onboard keyboard. I so love this app. The iKeywi app in the iTunes/Apple Store does NOT work for my iPad Air or my iPad 6+. This one does!

    I love the iKeywi tweak keyboard but according to Cydia it is NOT compatible with the iPad And won't allow an install on my pad.
