Everybody has been stunned by the fact that the TaiG team has been so quiet about their new release of the TaiG 8.3. Furthermore, no one has expected it to appear so shortly. Nevertheless, users rushed to download and try it. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been quite trouble free. After reading some of the complaints we have compiled a set of tips to help you fix some of the issues.
The most frequently reported problem among those who installed jailbreak ios 8.3 is the device getting stuck on the Apple logo.
A possible reason for this would be the way in which the iOS firmware has been updated. Because the jailbreak 8.3 was expected to be released in February, many of the users have updated their firmware via OTA. Over time, it has been proven that if you want to jailbreak your device, this practice might cause problems.
If this is the case, you can try the following:
1. Try running the jailbreak ios 8.3 again after doing a Hard Reset (hold both HOME and POWER buttons down for 10 seconds).
2. If before installing this jailbreak you made a backup, try restoring your device from it. To do so you must first put it in DFU mode (hold both HOME and POWER buttons down for 10 seconds than release POWER while continuing to hold HOME until the recovery message appears in iTunes; click the restore button).
3. If the problem still persists, you can try installing one of the two new updates freshly released to TaiG v2.0 which are meant to remove Taig from the jailbreak. If you encounter this issue using the iPad 2, you should use v1.0.2. If none of the above work you should restore your device and hope the next update from TaiG will be released soon.
Another issue encountered after jailbreaking is the never-ending reboot loop.
The most common cause of this is a compatibility issue between MobileSubstrate and the first release of the TaiG jailbreak download. Because of this, many tweaks that rely on MobileSubstrate stop working as they should and can generate the reboot loop. However, MobileSubstrate has lately been replaced by Cydia Substrate.
If you can’t manage to get your device to boot up properly, you should enter DFU mode (see the steps above) and restore. If you manage to boot up your device, we advise you to enter Cydia and remove all the tweaks that use MobileSubstrate. After addressing this issue you should be able to jailbreak your device again. This time, try using TaiG v2.0 or1.1.2 if you are using an iPad Airt 2. This jailbreak should work with all your tweaks.
Jailbreak process stops responding
You should know that the jailbreak process should not take longer than 5 minutes – while using TaiG download jailbreak. If it stops responding or freezes and takes more than 5 minutes, you should close the jailbreak on your PC and reboot your device, then try again.
TaiG can’t be launched on Mac
This issue has been reported by users of OS X 10.8 or higher and it has to do with the GateKeeper. When attempting to open TaiG iOS 8.3, select open again in the window that appears.
Can’t bypass Activation Lock
This anti-theft feature needs the owners Apple ID to be able to restore or jailbreak the device. Unfortunately there is no easy way to bypass it unless you know the password. If you have purchased the device you should have it; otherwise you’ll have to contact the original owner and have them disable the lock. This can be done remotely.
Configuring System problems
Some users have reported getting stuck at this point of the jailbreak process. “Slow computers” would seem to be the problem in this case, although TaiG have not provided a list with the minimum requirements. They did recommend trying a different computer.
1. Before trying to jailbreak your device, always create a backup.
2. Disable the Passcode lock before proceeding
3. Do not start iTunes while the jailbreak is running.
4. If the firmware on your device has been updated via OTA, you should use iTunes to restore it before attempting a jailbreak.
5. Windows users who have troubles launching TaiG v2.0 jailbreak tool should make sure they are logged in as Administrator.
6. If your device comes with the new A7 64-bit chip, you should be aware that some tweaks do not work. We advise you to be very cautious or patient.

Being ahead of everyone on iPhone platform is important so to achieve that you must use the latest stuff in jailbreak. Jailbreak leads to Cydia and Cydia leads to repositories that help you get to important apps, tweaks, media files, etc. There are a lot of repos out there that can be introduced to iCydiaBlog, but the best among them is BigBoss. Some repos are specialized in different areas but BigBoss covers almost all of them from apps to tweaks, themes to ringtones no matter if they are free or paid. Emulators to play games are also found here and some of the best apps and tweaks gather around such as: Springtomize 2, Zephyr, InfiniDock, SBSettings and others. We continue and present to you some of this great tweaks from http://www.icydiablog.com/271/best-cydia-sources-ios-8/.
Springtomize 2 is an app that covers visual customization from homescreen, icons to carrier, backgrounds, wallpapers and other aspects. Lock screen is also customizable and all you need to do is respring the device to apply the changes. The app costs just $2.99.
Zephyr is the next app that comes in our little review and comes with multitasking gestures for your iDevices. It works through swipe. Just swipe your finger from left to right or vice versa and you can switch between apps this way. Task switcher is enabled by swiping from bottom to top and Notification Center by swiping from top to bottom. The NC doesn`t come down as you would expect but in a window.
If you need a tweak to help you get many icons on your dock than InfiniDock is the way to go. It enables you to use up to nine icons per page that are integrated in the dock. It`s an easy going tweak that you can use for $1.99.
One of the most used and important tweak of all is SBSettings that enables lot of toggles for your iDevice.

More functions are available too like restarting or respringing your iDevice or you can get even your device IP. $2.49 is just a bargain for this tweak.
Many other tweaks and apps are available through the BigBoss repo and because there are so many we have to limit ourselves to only those presented here.

10 Greatest Cydia Tweaks
10 more intriguing Cydia tweaks which you need to definitely try out now:
1). RespringCache Repair: RespringCacheFix isnt an exciting tweak that does something real but its among the main tweaks ever. Each time you respring your apparatus (Winterboard motifs, installs, tweak changes, upgrades etc.), there are few files saved which well call cache. This cache eats up your iPhones space and can slow down the telephone or a few of the tweaks/programs.
2).MuteIcon: MuteIcon is an easy and exceptionally practical tweak. You know theres actually no strategy to determine in case your iPhone is to the quiet mode by studying the screen. Thats why MuteIcon is excellent: it places a little mute icon in the status bar to inform you that the iPhone wont ring when a call comes in.
3). iKeywi: Theres one thing missing from your iPhones keypad and that thing is really costing you lots of time. On an average computer keyboard, you type the numbers and symbols readily. iKeywi places that fifth row right in addition to your normal keypad and this row has all the numbers & most symbols which can be utilized often. Really useful.
4). BatteryPeek: Need to truly save a bit of space in the status bar but nevertheless need the battery percent index? Well, Batterypeek (in conjunction with the Activator gesture) can readily get that done. That which you do is conceal the index and possess a gesture (like doubletap status bar) to reveal the battery percent to get a few seconds. In this way you save space in the status bar for other fascinating items.
5). FlagPaint: How would it be in case the colour of the telling banner ads transformed to the colour of the program. Well, thats exactly what FlagPaint does.
6). TorchNC: TorchNC is a straightforward tweak which adds a Pat to Flashlight button in your telling facility. TorchNC lets you switch around the flashlight out of your telling facility to be utilized as a torch in the dark. Easy, refined and neatly executed.
7). TypeStatus: TypeStatus is among the trendiest tweaks that Ive ever seen/used. You realize that when you chat with a buddy over iMessage, you can see those ellipsis when they’re typing a message. Needless to say, this uses your information (or Wifi) and has a little effect to the battery. Still, amazing tweak.
8). InstaSave: InstaSave made by iCydiaBlog.com from exactly the same programmer who created TorchNC (and Kamera also) lets you open Instagram immediately. Its for people that possess lots of programs and folders and finding Instagram from the group is difficult.
9). Flashorama: Taking a panorama picture? You most likely realize the iPhone doesnt empower the flash (theres no choice). However, what in the event you would like the flash to get a pano photo? Thats exactly where Flashorama comes in. Its free and accessible on BigBoss.
10). You most likely realize you could lock in the iPhone in portrait orientation (double press House -> swipe right -> spigot to the leftmost icon). However, what in the event you would like to lock in the landscape mode? tsLock O enables one to do that. Pay attention to the video:

Verizon is preparing to launch its 5-inch Nokia Lumia Icon Windows Phone handset shortly, but it looks like the carrier will also make a new presentation for a Samsung Windows Phone 8.1 device in future.
Evleaks, une of the main specialists in that domain, reveals a new face of of an unannounced Samsung “Huron” Windows Phone. The handset includes Verizon branding, and it looks very similar to Samsung’s Ativ S and Galaxy S3 / S4 devices.
While the Ativ S has capacitive search and back buttons, this latest leaked Samsung “Huron” handset appears to only include a dedicated home button and some opinions are that is a new approach of this problem.
We’ve heard Microsoft is planning to use on-screen buttons for some Windows Phone 8.1 handsets, and Nokia’s “Moneypenny” device will likely be the first example of that, but Samsung could be opting for a mix of hardware buttons and on-screen. We aren`t so sure about this, but in our opinion, it could appear an incomplete rendering because the capacitive buttons aren`t so reliable. In this case, we believe that Samsung will use the same type of buttons (non-capacitive) as Samsung has used non-capacitive home buttons on its previous Windows Phones. Also of note, there’s no dedicated camera button on the Huron.
No solid specifications have leaked yet for Samsung’s Huron handset, but rumors suggest it will include a 5-inch or 4.3-inch 1080p display. The handset was tested recently with Bluetooth 3.0 testing, and Windows Phone trackers Ad Duplex. These tests were performed also on Verizon. We have a contradiction between Ad Duplex and Evleaks, both sides claiming the version of OS (Ad Duplex claims claims the handset, identified as the SM-W750V, is running Windows Phone 8 which contradicts Evleaks claim of Windows Phone 8.1). While Samsung may unveil its latest Galaxy S5 handset in Barcelona later this month, it’s possible the company could also use its latest Unpacked event to detail its future Windows Phone handsets.

If you are on the go then you will find interesting this wonderful tweak. From the maker of Activator we get Actiwidget, This tweak adds some new features to Notification Center, like shortcuts to some features of your device. You can add a shortcut for your Music player, write a message or write an email. In other words you can add a short for any favorite action.
Configuration for this tweak is very simple, you can remove actions, place them in a specific order or you can add another action. Shortcuts for these actions appear in inline like buttons where you can scroll for the action you want. You can also define these actions to act like toggles for your important features.
This little tweak is more streamlined than other tweaks because you will not get all the buttons in the same viewable area of the Notification Center, because of the inline function you can always scroll to find the button you are looking for. I prefer this tweak instead of SBSettings because this way you can access easily those actions. Let’s just say if you want to activate your wireless or Bluetooth you must first go to Home screen where with Actiwidget you just simply pull down the Notification Center and access that action.
There are a lot of toggles and buttons out there in Cydia but just a few stands up to the task for what they were made. For example, this tweak does wonders even though it is in the beta stage, so let us just say that Actiwidget has potential. If you want more information regarding cydia apps and tweak stay tuned because there is more to come.
