Yesterday Apple released iOS 8.1.2 for download and shortly after the Chinese TaiG tool was updated to allow Windows users to jailbreak their devices (Mac OS X coming soon).
Essentially, you just need to update your iOS device to iOS 8.1.2 (clean update preferred), disable passcode lock and Find my iPhone, download and run TaiG 1.2 on your Windows machine, then let the software perform the jailbreak.
The TaiG jailbreak works on the following:
- iPhone 4S or newer
- iPad mini or newer; iPad 2 or newer
- 5th generation iPod touch
Here’s a good tutorial of the process via iDownloadBlog:
