Apple has often had a slightly psychoactive attitude towards its customers and this is precisely what has favored the emergence of the jailbreak and all the associated techniques. A lot has changed since then, but some of you may want to take your iPhone, iPod or iPad a little further.
Is this your case? No doubt, it's your lucky day because this article will describe the procedure to follow to unlock your terminal. I will also try to make it as simple and understandable as possible, even if it means taking certain shortcuts.
If you have any questions, or need some clarification, then feel free to leave a quick comment following the article.
Easy jailbreak thanks to TaiG
Before you get started, you're going to need a couple of little things like a computer running Windows or OS X and an iDevice powered by iOS 8.1, iOS 8.2, iOS 8.3, or iOS 8.4.
The tool we are going to use here is indeed not compatible with previous versions of the platform.
Then, you will also have to make a backup of all the data stored on your terminal, via iTunes.
If this sentence is in bold, it is not for nothing. If something goes wrong, you may lose all the files and media stored on your phone, player or tablet.
The first thing to do is to make sure that your data is safe because it would still be a shame if the video of your son or daughter's first steps was taken in the trunk, right?
Now that everything is ready, it's time to get started:
- Download the tool developed by TaiG, by following this link.
- Disable your iDevice password. *
- Turn off the Find My Phone service. **
- Connect your terminal to your computer.
- Close iTunes if it starts.
- Launch the tool developed by TaiG.
- Wait while it recognizes your terminal.
- Deactivate the wizard.
- Click on the "Start" button.
- Wait until the end of the operation.
*: Open the settings of your terminal and go to the section dedicated to passwords. Then deactivate the appropriate option.
**: Same thing, you have to go to the device settings, then to the menu dedicated to iCloud, then to that of Find My Phone. There, it will simply be necessary to deactivate the option.
As you can see, TaiG's tool is quite easy to use. The best thing about it is that it also integrates Cydia so you won't have to do anything more to get your tweaks and customize how iOS works.
Also be aware that the utility in question is available on both Windows and OS X, so you will have no excuse for not using it.
