New evasi0n iOS 8.4 untethered jailbreak includes pirated app store – http://www.jailbreak814.org/
The evasi0n jailbreakers made a name for themselves earlier when they jailbroke all iOS 8.4 capable devices. On Sunday, though, they tarnished their image with a jailbreak for all iOS 8.4 devices, but one that included both an unofficial version of Cydia and a Chinese pirated app store called Taig. The evasi0n team was forced to issue a mea culpa.
Many jailbreak their iDevices, not so they can pirate apps, but so they can gain access to apps and iOS features that Apple walls off from them. The inclusion of Taig, though, casts a pall on the evasi0n team’s efforts.
In their apology to the jailbreaking community, evasi0n said that they were unaware of Taig’s practices. In fact, they added, Taig approached them to be bundled in the release, and contractually Taig was bound to have no pirated apps in their store.
So, it sounds like — despite any contractual obligations that Taig has, evasi0n is aware of the piracy as the team said “we continue to hope: that Taig’s inclusion will “improve” the piracy situation in Chinese app stores.
Another ding against the new jailbreak is the inclusion of an unofficial version of Cydia. The evasi0n team said:
This “rushed” release explains why — despite the above assertions that they had discussed things with Saurik — that he tweeted:
evasi0n’s Sunday release was an untethered jailbreak, meaning that the iDevice in question could be rebooted without losing the jailbreak. Tethered jailbreaks require a cabled jailbreak be redone every time the device booted.
