The TaiG jailbreak developer team has issued a new update, v1.3.0, to their untethered jailbreak tool, which supports iOS 8.2 beta 2 and beta 1; it is meant for Windows only.

If you are a Mac user, you can always use the PP jailbreak tool to perform a jailbreak of your device running iOS 8.2 beta 2. But the iOS 8.2 is currently in its fifth beta version, which Apple seeded earlier this month. Also, iOS 8.2 beta 2 is not available on the Member Center- Apple Developer site, so you will have to Google to get the download links for iOS 8.2 beta 2 firmware files.

The iOS 8.2 beta 2 has no expiry date, unlike other betas, so you can jailbreak your device once you update it with the beta version.
