The TaiG jailbreak developer team has just released the 2.1.1 jailbreak update, close on the heels of releasing 2.1.0 untether update for fixing Cydia Substrate issues in iOS 8.3.
According to iDownloadBlog, the latest TaiG jailbreak 2.1.1 update brings a handful of minor bug-fixes that are critical enough to warrant an update.
Those who are facing issues with TaiG jailbreak 2.0.0 as well as users who are yet to jailbreak their iOS device on iOS 8.3 can go ahead and use TaiG 2.1.1 for the best possible experience.
It has been confirmed that the latest TaiG 2.1.1 update is exclusively meant for Windows, and may have issues with VMware virtual machine.
However, discerning jailbreakers could use the Parallels tool to get the jailbreak running on non-Windows or Mac OS X machines.
TaiG jailbreak 2.1.1 is compatible with the following iOS devices running on iOS 8.1.3, iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3.
- iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S

- If you encounter Storage Almost Full warning message, just run Cydia
- If the jailbreak fails, turn off Wi-Fi and try again. If the issue persists, then use TaiG Pro (download here) to restore and try to jailbreak again
- Ensure that your iOS device has at least 80% battery charge
- TaiG jailbreak v2.1.1 supports iOS 8.1.3- iOS 8.3. As iOS 8.3 is more stable, it is recommended to update your iOS device to iOS 8.3 with TaiG Pro before jailbreak
