Upgraded to iOS 8.1.3 and Want a Jailbreak? Here Is the Trick!
Updating to iOS 8.1.3 stops iPhone, iPad, iPod touch users from an untethered jailbreak, but there is a turnaround: upgrade to iOS 8.2 beta 1 or beta 2 and give it a jailbreak with PP Jailbreak or Taig jailbreaking tool if your device is running iOS 8.1.3. Although the systems are called “beta”, fortunately they runs stably as others do.

- iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s
- iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3 and iPad 2
- iPad mini 1 (1st generation iPad mini), iPad mini 2 (Retina iPad mini), iPad mini 3
- iPod touch 5th generation
