Apple had patched up quite a few exploits in iOS 8.2, but has followed with even more patching of exploits in iOS 8.3 now, making iOS 8.3 jailbreak even more difficult. So in case of TaiG and the likes releasing a jailbreak for anything older than iOS 8.3 this would be useful. This tutorial is for them. You can downgrade iOS 8.3 to iOS 8.2.
