Thefirsttimewe heard about TaiG was a year ago, when the evad3rs released the evasi0n7 jailbreak, bundling the Chinese installer to their jailbreak utility for users in China. Long story short, TaiG wasnt what the evad3rs thought it was. A backlash followed, which led to evad3rs unbundling TaiG from their tool. But it was too late. TaiG then stuck in our heads.
Fast-forwardtoNovember2014 and the unexpected release of the TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1. It came out of nowhere and surprised everybody, and despite the sour taste TaiG had left in the community a year before, we were all quick to forget all about it. For most people, having a jailbreak for the latest software version was all that mattered.
