Alleged iOS 8.2/8.3 jailbreak shown in video 

It has been found on a Chinese video website that shows possible iOS 8.2 or 8.3 jailbreak.

Here is the direct video link:

In the video, it shows a tool called “Bagua jailbreak” (Eight Diagrams is an ancent symbol of Chinese) and a black-out Cydia icon. Per the description below the video:

After jailbroken with the tool, you cannot reboot, or the Cydia icon will black out and crash at launch. All the tweaks will not function and you have to connect it to a computer and fix it. Now you can fix with the mobile client. Bagua jailbreak is completed.

The sentences do not really make a good sense and coherence, right?

Additionally, there are several loopholes that makes the video not look trustworthy. First, the OP did not open up the Settings App and show us the iOS version. Second, the Apple Watch App was not launched to show if it works. Third, upon tapping the icon of the jailbrea看tool, the phone rebooted but seems the video was edited based on how the screen changed and the camera moved abnormally. Fourth, even if it rebooted correctly, the iOS version and the packages installed was not shown in Cydia.

So what’s your take on this video? Do you think it is real or not?

Edit #1: Further, on Weibo, they deleted the post that they will release the tool on 31 April. But wait, there is no such date!

Edit #2: Looks like the video has been locked by the original poster. Unfortunately there is nothing left by a screenshot that I captured here
