UPDATE: Works on iOS 7.1.2 as well.
The Pangu team has updated iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak utility to version 1.1.0. They added support for Mac OS X and English version, fixed several bugs (including boot loop bug) and removed the ability to install pirate appstore (PPSync) from English version. Unfortunately to jailbreak community they also used another new exploit instead of i0n1c’s one used in v.1.0. This is no good, since Apple might both in iOS 8 or even iOS 7.1.2.
What’s New In This Version:
1. Add English support.
2. Optimize the file size.
3. Fix the boot loop bug.
4. Using new info leak bug instead of @i0n1c’s
5. Add online self verification
If you successfully jailbroke your iOS 7.1.x device before using Pangu, then there is no reason for you to do anything at this time. If however you’ve been having issues, it might be a smart thing to do to restore and try again with Pangu 1.1.0.
Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows users.
The team credits famous hacker i0n1c, who introduced the infoleak bug during his training. By the way i0n1c has said, “if pangu team releases a public jailbreak with vulnerabilities disclosed to them during my training I consider this in no way okay.”
We have tried Pangu and confirm that the utility does in fact jailbreaks your device. Beware that there might be security risks, Chineese hackers are known for embedding trojans and spyware into utilities.
iH8Sn0w confirms that there is no spyware:
Aside from the piracy store and enterprise certificate… The http://pangu.io jailbreak does not have “spyware” or malicious trails.
There is a checkbox in the utility. If you leave it checked, a piracy app store will be installed. If you do not support piracy, uncheck the box before attempting a jailbreak.
Pangu works on all devices with iOS 7.1-7.1.1.
Earlier this week it was
Prominent jailbreak developer Ryan Petrich released ‘Attachment Encryptor’ this evening, a tweak that patches the aforementioned bug. All you have to do is install it and respring your iPhone or iPad.
The tweak is available for free via Petrich’s beta repo. You can add it by entering ‘Manage’ tab in Cydia and hitting Sources and Add sections. After you select the last menu, you need to enter http://rpetri.ch/repo/. That’s all.
I honestly hope that Apple will fix the issue in the next iOS version.
The evad3rs on Friday released an updated evasi0n7 jailbreak utility. It is still impossible to jailbreak iPhone 5, 5c and 5s running iOS 7.1, however, evasi0n7 1.0.8 brings support for iOS 7.0 build 11A466.
11A466 is probably a factory build, which means it is not available for download. This iOS 7 version is installed primarily on new devices. For instance, one user says that iPhone 5s, which he got from Apple as a replacement for his damaged smartphone, is currently running iOS 7 build 11A466. He adds that he can’t jailbreak his new device.
As noted by
At some point during the past week or so, the evad3rs released an update for evasi0n7, bringing the jailbreak tool to version 1.0.8. According to the change log, the software now supports build 11A466 of iOS 7.
The evad3rs have released new Evasi0n7 1.0.6. The updated jailbreak tool version allows to hack the devices running latest iOS 7.0.6. Looks like you don’t have to wait or search for alternative patches as I recommended yesterday. All you need to do is to upgrade to iOS 7.0.6 and then run the Evasi0n7 tool.
Following Apple’s release yesterday of iOS 7.0.6, the evad3rs have released an update to their evasi0n7 jailbreak tool. The update, which brings the tool to version 1.0.6. included a fix for an SSL connection verification issue, which turned out to be a major security flaw in the operating system.
Before jailbreaking your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, make sure you backed up all the important files from your device.
The evad3rs have released an updated evasi0n 7.0.5 that brings the ability to jailbreak iOS 7.0.5. The iOS 7.0.5 was released earlier this week for the some iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models (the GSM + CDMA editions).
Pod2g noted the change on twitter
Hi there! evasi0n 1.0.5 with support for iOS 7.0.5 is up on http://evasi0n.com .
You can download the latest Evasi0n 7.0.5
A new tweak has recently appeared on Cydia that lets you use your iPhone 5 or iPod touch to capture slow motion videos, even though these devices are believed to not support a slow motion mode. The tweak is called Slo-mo Mod and it is available for free on BigBoss repo.
As noted by
One of the iPhone 5s’ flagship features, the Camera app’s baked-in slow motion mode, is now available to owners of older devices like the iPhone 5, and the iPod touch 5th generation. Slo-mo Mod is the jailbreak tweak that makes it so that slow motion mode is no longer an iPhone 5s exclusive.
The tweak can be customized and configured via Settings app. That means you can either turn Slo-mo Mod on or off or try to change some parameters to make the tweak work more efficient.
So, if you want to capture slow motion videos using your iPhone 5, iPhone 4s or iPod touch, Slo-mo Mod is definitely a worth downloading tweak.
Good news for all those who miss iOS 6 -- there’s a new tweak on Cydia that brings back the old school unlock sound. It is compatible with iPhones and iPads running iOS 7 and I must admit it works just perfect. It’s name is UnlockSound7.
UnlockSound7 is a new jailbreak tweak that allows users to regain the iPhone’s iconic unlock sound that occurs when unlocking the device. Take a look at our video walkthrough to see how it works.
As I mentioned above, the tweak is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository. It’s free, so go and get it.
Here’s what the hackers have said:
