We expand the applicability of eighth order-iterative method studied by Jaiswal in order to approximate a locally unique solution of an equation in Banach space setting. We provide a local convergence analysis using only hypotheses on the first Frechet-derivative. Moreover, we provide computable convergence radii, error bounds, and uniqueness results. Numerical examples computing the radii of the convergence balls as well as examples where earlier results cannot apply to solve equations but our results can apply are also given in this study.
