While Apple may have stopped signing iOS 8.1.2, leaving jailbreakers no room to downgrade from iOS 8.1.3, new hope has arrived in the form of an iOS 8.2 jailbreak from PP. We know that iOS 8.2 is currently still in beta but the untethered jailbreak will work on either beta 1 or 2. If you are a registered developer then you are good to go. If not, you will either have to sit this one out of head here and take part in our UDID activation program so that you can download the betas.

The iOS 8.2 betas do not expire, unlike previous beta releases, good news if you intend to run the firmware long-term, and possibly the only real reason why you could even consider jailbreaking a beta release. This means that, even though we are now on beta 5 for iOS 8.2, Apple is still signing the earlier betas but as we don’t know how long for you should get this jailbreak quickly.
