The jailbreak for Apple's recently released iOS 8 iteration could be released later this month.
Last week, Apple issued a new update to iOS 8, iOS 8.2 with support for Apple Watch, improvements to Health app, enhanced stability and a plethora of bug fixes.
According to Apple's document posted on its support site describing the security content of iOS 8.2, the update has patched the security flaws in CoreTelephony, iCloud Keychain, IOSurface, MobileStorageMounter, Secure Transport and Springboard. It also patches the MobileStorageMounter (CVE-2015-1062: TaiG Jailbreak Team), which is for the TaiG jailbreak team.
i0n1c, the German security researcher, whose real name is Stefan Esser, expects the Chinese jailbreak team TaiG, to release a jailbreak around the 2015 Mobile Security Summit (MSS) in Beijing. The Chinese version of this is known as Worldwide Jailbreak Convention, started in 2012.
Well known iOS hackers such as Comex, Chronic, p0sixninja and Pimskeks will be speaking at the event which is scheduled on 27 March, organised by the TaiG team.
The aforementioned hackers are listed as the panelists in the MSS event, and will host keynotes on security, anatomy of jailbreak and Openjailbreak.org.
At present there is no word from the TaiG jailbreak developer team, who has released untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1, iOS 8.1.2, iOS 8.2 beta 1 and beta 2 with support for Windows.
The team, in their public announcement in December last year, confirmed they would disable the jailbreak support for iOS 8.2 in the public release, but suggested they would update the iOS 8.2 support once Apple makes the update public.
