There’s a storm developing worldwide of jailbreaking, with the just recently launched TaiG iOS 8.3 jailbreak getting a bit of competitors. Typically, that would be an advantage, other than this time around the competitors comes in the type that is obviously a clone of TaiG’s work. Also, much like TaiG for iOS 8.3, it’s Windows-only jailbreak.
Launched by 25PP, the exact same individuals whose app store PP Assistant was set up by the now famous Pangu jailbreak, this new jailbreak tool comes pack with 25PP’s own PP Assistant app store rather of 3K Assistant which is bundled with TaiG’s tool. If TaiG team’s claims are to be thought, 25PP’s jailbreak is based on work done by TaiG. The result is a new device that uses TaiG’s jailbreak, however just rebadges it. What else it does is anybody’s guess at this point.
TaiG is clearly extremely disappointed by this and now is reminding users that there is only one officially approved jailbreak for iOS 8.3, and that is from TaiG.
In a statement, the TaiG group had this to state on Weibo (Translation credit: DurianNinja on Reddit):
Currently, PP Assistant has an unathorized jailbreak device based on adjustments to the TaiG tool, they’ve released it online as PP Jailbreak Assistant, calling it “the world’s very first in perfect compatibility”. We’re still presently dealing with a new version for release, as for such actions we can only sadly say: TaiG has actually never ever given consent to PP Assistant to customize the jailbreak tool, we have actually likewise never ever teamed up with them before. At the exact same time, for the security of jailbreak users, please download the only valid jailbreak device from TaiG’s official website.
Considering that TaiG’s jailbreak was the first to support iOS 8.3 for general public, we suggest persevering until PP jailbreak is offered the green light by the community.

Due to the release of this very jailbreak, it’s been noted on Twitter by i0n1c that TaiG is delaying their kernel update, which will certainly repair Cydia Substratum problems on iOS 8.3, to secure its own jailbreak from 25PP.
I think that explains why TaiG is delaying the repair. They need to protect their tool against 25PP
