    So before I took my CPU in to get cleaned I didn't care if I got a virus DLing Taig. But then I was stupid and reset my iPad wrongly and essentially bricked it. My fiance fixed it (don't know how) so now I have 8.4 on my iPad but can't DL Taig on my CPU. Have you noticed for Taig and Taig Pro that there piggy backs of some kinda... I'll call it badware?? First when you DL Taig there's some file called CLDOWNLOADS.COM that you can delete right away at the spot where you're DLing Taig. It's physically impossible for me to DL Taig because Norton assures me that it's a level 9 malware after doing some research on it. I'm sure since it's a Chinese hack that they know Americans are using there's something piggybacking it's way onto it to monitor your CPU... Or am I being a conspiracy nut?

    I remember back when some 7.x version was jailbroken, the jailbreakers made a deal with some Chinese app store to install with the jailbreak but it installed fishy crap on your device. So it's not out of the realm of possibility, but it could be something else

    I don't know I just had to call Apple because there were 152 dollars worth of charges on my iTunes for apps I have already bought, one was for a completely fake dating app (all the people on it were fake, the comments were fake, the app was an indian fake), after subscribing to it for the first day I noticed it was BS and cancelled it but was charged for that app and other about 3 times. And that was for Pangu 7.x for my iPhone, but for this Taig's iPad Norton (I know it's notorious for spotting fake viruses) won't even let me DL it or open it claiming there's a high level heuristic malware algorithm on it. Also when I factory reset my iPad there's still what looks like 1GB of "other" space, which I can't tell if is what comes with the iPad or not, but the "other" was reduced when I properly reset it... I just want to use somebody else's computer to JB my iPad...
