Hi yall. I've been out of the loop pretty much since I had a baby this summer. I've been somewhat waiting for a new ios8 jailbreak though. Is there one available besides the Chinese one? If so, can someone tell me where to find more info? Thanks!

Pangu and Taig; both Chinese. I think the answer is no.

OP, Pangu has worked just fine for me on my two iPhones and my iPad.

My question to others since I've been out of the loop for thr past month or so.. is 8.1.2 the latest signed version via iTunes / OTA updates? It's time to go from iOS 7 to 8 on my phone and iPad. Just want to make sure I can still JB if I update via the computer.

Yes 8.1.2 is the latest and do the update via itune or dfu restore to 8.1.2
Do not update via ota
The Chinese can produce/release jailbreaks using methods without worries of laws in other countries such as the US. Does not mean they are unsafe, once blessed by the regular Devs leave little reason for them to waste an exploit producing one locally.

Updated my iPad Mini 2 to iOS 8.1.2 and it works perfectly! Going to unlock my iPhone 6 this evening and then JB that. I have to update it via iTunes for the unlock so I think it'll be an iCloud restore for the phone since it has to be updated though iTunes for the unlock. Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the info yall. I was wondering because I know in the past there have been security concerns.

So what I gathered was there's Pangu and Taig?

Which one would you recommend?

For 8.1.2 you have no chioce. TaiG 1.2.0 is the only one.
