    Pangu untethered iOS 7.1.X jailbreak released, but proceed with caution



    A new jailbreak from a Chinese team dubbed “Pangu” has been released, and reports are spreading quickly around the Internet that it does indeed successfully install the famed “Cydia” jailbreak package installer application. It appears that this jailbreak is similar to the TaiG side of the evasi0n jailbreak from last year in that it also includes a sketchy Chinese pirated app installer.

    The jailbreak can be obtained from the Pangu team’s website, and there’s currently only one .exe installer file available that runs only on Windows. The size of the download is strikingly more than 70 MB, which brings about a bit of suspicion in and of itself. For those with a Mac and willing to give this a shot, it appears that Pangu has an OS X version in the works as the team has “Mac OS” listed as a compatible operating system.

    Based on various web reports — although the jailbreak does appear sketchy — there doesn’t seem to be any apparently direct malicious intent. Famed jailbreak developer iH8sn0w confirms on Twitter that the package itself doesn’t “have “spyware” or malicious trails.”

    We haven’t personally tested the jailbreak because — as I’m sure will be the case with many — we’re waiting for more confirmation that there isn’t anything malicious here. Notably, now that the exploit itself is out, the jailbreak will almost certainly be repackaged by the evad3rs or another jailbreak team at which point we’ll likely feel more comfortable giving it a shot. In the meantime, the Chinese website is definitely taking a hammering as countless desperate iOS 7.1 users get their hands on yet another installment of bring able to bring unofficial software to their iOS devices.

    Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 updated with English interface, OS X support, and more



    Last week a team of developers released the first untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, dubbed “Pangu.” At the time, the application only ran on Windows and the entire interface was in Chinese. However, a Mac version of the software was promised, and today that promise has been kept.

    Pangu 1.1 was released on the dev team’s website earlier today and brings a handful of changes. Most importantly, the software now supports Mac OS X and sports a new English UI. The update goes deeper than just the desktop app, though. Bug fixes have been made to the jailbreak itself to fix issues such as a boot loop on certain devices that was being reported by those who had used version 1.0.

    Finally, English users no longer need to worry about the shady third-party software that was being installed along with the jailbreak (unless you remembered to un-check that box). The “PP25″ installer will no longer be an option for users with their language set to English, though it seems Chinese users will still be offered the choice.

    You can grab Pangu 1.1 from the developer’s website.

    How to Jailbreak iPhone & iPad on iOS 7.1.1 with Pangu



    The 1.1.0 version of Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 is now available for users interested in jailbreaking their compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Basically, if the device can run iOS 7.1.1, it can be jailbroken with the Pangu tool using a fairly straightforward process from a Windows PC or Mac, and that’s what this tutorial will demonstrate.

    Jailbreaking is certainly not for everyone and there are legitimate reasons not to do it, leaving the activity best reserved for advanced users who have a strong reason to jailbreak their devices, and preferably with some experience with the process. Be sure to understand the risks before attempting to perform this action with your own iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch hardware. This is not something to take lightly, and we think the average user should not jailbreak their devices.


    How to Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 with the Pangu 1.1.0

    Pangu 1.1.0 jailbreaks iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but we’re going to run through the tutorial showing jailbreaking an iPhone, the directions will be the same for all other devices and should be the same for Mac and Windows.

    Back up the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to iTunes – this is important, it lets you undo the jailbreak
    Have the device updated to iOS 7.1.1 before beginning
    Download the Pangu 1.1.0 jailbreak for Mac or Windows and launch the app (Mac users need to open Pangu by right-clicking and choosing “Open” to get around the developer warning)






    Connect the iOS device to the computer with a USB cable
    Click the “Jailbreak” button once the Pangu app detects the device





    Follow the onscreen instructions and set the clock back to June 2, 2014





    The jailbreak process will begin automatically once the changed date has been detected
    When the Pangu icon appears on your iPhone / iPad / iPod home screen, tap to open it, then tap on “Continue” to continue the jailbreak process





    After another moment or two the iOS device will eventually reboot and the Pangu app will change status to “Done”





    When the device reboots, you’ll find the familiar brown Cydia icon waiting for you to use. Just launch Cydia and you’re ready to go (note the device may reboot again when Cydia is initially launched). Enjoy the jailbreak!





    ]Remember, you can always unjailbreak by restoring the iPhone or iPad through iTunes, this is why it’s so important to backup the device before beginning the process.

    Pangu jailbreak already compatible with iOS 7.1.2



    Talk about quick off the mark! iOS 7.1.2 may have only just been released, but the Pangu jailbreak (which offers an untethered solution for iOS 7.1.x-powered Apple devices) is already compatible with the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.

    This means that it is safe for jailbreakers to update to the latest version of iOS, before re-jailbreaking their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with the same Pangu method.

    Released yesterday, iOS 7.1.2 adds improvements to the iOS Mail application and iBeacon. Pangu launched towards the end of June — initially only for Windows users, but arriving on the Mac not long after. Users can download iOS 7.1.2 over-the-air (OTA) from Apple, while Pangu can be downloaded free of charge from this link.
