iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

When I am trying to jailbreak my iPhone 4 tethered on IOS 5.1.1 it will stop and wait for reboot and not do anything for hours. I have tried using the 5.1 IPSW, but it will never go through with the Jailbreak. What should I do?
