    iOS 8.1 Jailbreak hits the web via Chinese Pangu team, but itís Cydia-less Devs. only



    It wasnít too long ago when the Pangu jailbreak team took the scene by storm with itís iOS 7.1.x jailbreak tool release. It was quite unexpected because no on had really heard of Pangu prior to the surprise. Turns out the team was very talented and theyíre all set to reach another milestoneÖ

    The iOS 8 Ė iOS 8.1 jailbreak is set to be released by the Pangu team. Initially the team announced the release of a developer version, but later removed the download link. Either way this is great news for jailbreakers, but the developer version does not install Cydia or other common services. Instead, this is a pure jailbreak that will enable developers to update their tweaks prior to Cydia being available for iOS 8.

    The Pangu jailbreak will be launched to the public when Cydia and related services are ready for prime-time, but until then weíre left with a developer-only version. Itís only a matter of time until Pangue releases it to the public, but this also relies on Cydia being 100 percent compatible. This jailbreak is said to be compatible with all devices capable of running iOS 8 including the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad mini 3, and iPad Air 2. Great news, right?

    According to a recent Reddit thread, Cydiaís creator Saurik is working on making it compatible:

    So, windknown has contacted me, about a half hour ago, via e-mail. He has told me one of the issues that is keeping Substrate from working on the device, which will probably require me to build a little binary patch for dyld as part of the Substrate installation sequence. This was the worst possible day for me, as Iím traveling back to Santa Barbara today (Iím currently in Texas, having come here to give a talk at The Big Android BBQ), which means this will take me a little longer than Iíd like, but clearly getting Cydia and Substrate working on iOS 8 is my highest priority. I thankfully think that I actually can start working a little on one of the Substrate issues using an iOS 7 ďmodelĒ based on the information provided by windknown, which means Iíll lose less time to not having all of my devices with me. (I currently have no clue why Cydia itself is not functioning, but will find out later today when I can see it myself.)

    Unfortunately, like the last release it seems that this jailbreak tool will only be compatible with Windows computers at launch according the teamís official website. Itís unclear when an OS X compatible version will be released, but hopefully it wonít be too long after the public gets a hold of the Windows version.

    If youíre into jailbreaking, stay tuned for our walk-through of the process when the jailbreak is released. With all of Appleís latest iOS devices at our fingertips now, it should make for an exciting jailbreak launch. Plenty of fresh devices to modify. Weíll update this article with a link to the developer download if/when it becomes available.

    Update #1: The Pangu team recently tweeted the reason for removing the toolís download link, but did provide information on preparing for the release.

    Update #2: The Pangu team has released the iOS 8 jailbreak tool, but itís only for Windows and thereís currently no English translation.

    Keep in mind, just because the jailbreak tool is now available for download, weíd recommend waiting until Cydia and its associated services are ready. At this point, the general public will not benefit from this jailbreak. Developers (including Saurik) need time to update everything so that you have the ability to enjoy the jailbreak and install various tweaks. Weíll keep you posted on a public-ready version of the jailbreak as soon as itís released.
