iOS 8.2 was released to the public over a week ago, and already, jailbreakers are champing at the bit for a jailbreak solution that works with the latest and greatest version of Apple’s new operating system. Now it seems as if TaiG, the Chinese jailbreaking team that cracked open previous versions of iOS 8 to the public, could release an iOS 8.2 jailbreak as early as today.

Tomorrow is the Mobile Security Summit, a conference that the TaiG Jailbreak Team is hosting in China. The list of people who will be attending is a who’s who of the iOS jailbreak scene, including Comex, Chronic and P0sixninja.

It seems like a natural place for the TaiG team to announce a new iOS 8.2 jailbreak, and that’s just what iOS hacker and security expert Stefan Esser (better known as i0nic) is speculating on Twitter:

Will an iOS 8.2 jailbreak be coming out of the Mobile Security Summit? With so many jailbreaking brains under one roof, it certainly seems like a good venue for an announcement of that nature. Then again, with iOS 8.3 right around the corner — and iOS 8.4, which will allegedly feature a new Music app, rumored after that — it might make more sense for TaiG to keep its exploits close to the vest. At least for now.
