The lesser-known PP jailbreak developer team has released a working jailbreak for iOS 8.4, close on the heels of TaiG's latest 2.2.0 jailbreak release for Apple's newest software iteration.

It is alleged that PP stole the original jailbreak code from TaiG in the making of its first iOS 8.4 untethered jailbreak.

TaiG has even posted a side-by-side comparison of TaiG vs PP Assistant's CodeSign and Kernel vulnerabilities on Twitter.

Meanwhile, folks at iDownloadBlog have confirmed that the PP jailbreak tool works absolutely fine with iOS 8.4. However, it is not yet confirmed if the latest jailbreak tweaks and Cydia apps are compatible with PP jailbreak as Saurik (the founder of Cydia) is yet to certify the jailbreak as safe.


  • Ensure that you have disabled Find My iPhone, passcode lock and location services from the device's settings
  • Enable Airplane mode on your iOS device
  • Verify if your iOS device is connected to your computer and recognised in iTunes, before running the PP jailbreak tool
  • Back up important data and settings on your device via iCloud or iTunes including all personal information that you need. The jailbreak has been reported to be extremely stable.
  • Disable any security software including anti-virus programs or firewalls temporarily as it could prevent PP jailbreak from connecting to the internet.
