    Hello everyone. Hope i don't hit for this. I did some searching. Can't find it.

    Here is my question.

    Iphone 6 plus... Ios 8.1.1 loaded since day one. Never had any issues. Never updated. Works great. If i backup my phone to itunes and then restore the phone..... Since apple is not signing it anymore will it force update 9.3.1? Or will it keep it at 8.1.1 after restoring backup and then i can use tagi to jailbreak? Thanks if someone can answer this question.

    It will make you restores to 9.3.1. You can try semi-restore or cydia impactor on it if you want to keep 8.1.1.

    Is the device currently jailbroken? If not, just back it up..... Don't restore anything. Say no to any prompts from iTunes. Go ahead with the jailbreak..... In the event you / it fails and you need to restore the device, you will be forced to update to 9.3.1

    Mikecwest, starkcity.......

    Mike thanks for the info ...

    Startcity it has never been jailbroken. Sorry if i missed that in my post. Cool ill make a backup of it and just go for the jailbreak. Ill deal if it doesn't go through but love my factory 8.1.1 just never jailbroke at time.


    Thanks for your guys time and info. I'll try without restoring. Was hoping i didn mt have to since i use this like my laptop. Should i look for the version of taig released at the time or using the current taig jailbreak tool all the same? Thats my follow up question

    Use the latest TaiG version. It'll work for 8.1-8.4

    Yes , use the current version...... If it fails for whatever reason, depending on how deep you're into the JB process a hard reset may bring you back out into your 8.1 again. Buuuuut if you ever restore a device with iTunes it will always wipe the jb and force the latest iOS version. Stay away from the 'reset all settings and content' option that is built into the device, once jailbroken, that will always soft brick the device forcing a DFU restore, loss of jb, and being pushed to the newest iOS

    Taig says....... It recommends I upgrade to 8.4 and use taigpro to do so....


    I will not let me continue to jailbreak 8.1.1...

    What should I do not. The driver part is fixed.

    Hello everyone. My phone is jailbroken. Thanks for the links, the help, and i got stuck at 60% however reading the fix guide that was posted here about itunes for older computers/graphics card did the trick. To fix the 60% stuck i simply aborted the jailbreak process. Restarted my phone.... Scary got a blue screen for a sec then when it got to home screen unlocked and did jailbreak again. Bam!!! Cydia on my phone with happy face from taig. Lol. I did have to use the older version of taig. I am gonna post some screen shots in case anyone is left on 8.1.1 like i am ill show ya give me a day or two to post though. Thanks for everyone that replied here. Now to the tweaking woohoo!!
