Some Jailbreak experts are saying that iOS 8.2 jailbreak and iOS 8.3 jailbreak has actually been achieved, but it was held from release because there were key vulnerabilities patched on iOS 8.4 beta versions. Should that iOS 9 jailbreak be as difficult as predicted, then there might be a release of the iOS 8.3 and 8.4 jailbreak soon.
For those of you unfamiliar with the process of jailbreaking, it is a way of removing the restrictions of iOS on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. According to TaiG Jailbreak site, there is no current tool to jailbreak iOS 8.1.3 and higher versions, but if you want to Jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 or lower, that is quite possible. Apple patched most of the vulnerabilities used by jailbreakers TaiG and PPJailbreak for version 8.1.3, and they have carried over to latest versions too.
Reputed iOS hacker Stefan Esser, also known as i0n1c, has been able to develop untethered jailbreak iOS 8.3 and untethered jailbreak iOS 8.4. Esser doesn’t plan on releasing this jailbreak to the public, but he has a proof of concept iOS 8.4 beta 1 jailbreak – Click here to see more about iOS 8.4 beta 1 Jailbreak
The fact that i0n1c hasn’t released the iOS 8.4 jailbreak does arouse suspicion, as there still is no confirmation on the iOS 8.3 jailbreak release date. iOSJailbreak.org reports that if jailbreak developers wait until Apple releases the iOS 8.4 update, then the jailbreak for it will probably last longer as iOS 8.4 could be the last major update before Apple releases iOS 9.
So what will probably happen is that iOS 8.4 will drop around Apple’s WWDC, and so will the jailbreak, after that, it will be good for jailbreakers until iOS9 update.
