Here’s what’s new…
This marks the first user safe version of the iOS 8.0 – 8.1 jailbreak to be released. A previous version of the utility intended for developers was released last week.
We’ll be posting the full instructions on how to jailbreak your device using Pangu8 version 1.1 shortly. You can
A new version of the Pangu jailbreaking utility has been released today. According to its developers, Pangu 1.2 contains a wide number of improvements and bug fixes aimed at addressing the issues connected with AFC2, sandbox and other features of this utility for jailbreak.
The full list of improvements is available below, take a look.
What’s New In Version 1.2:
It should be noted, however, that if the previous version of the jailbreaking tool works fine and if you haven’t got any problems with your device, you don’t have to update.
In case you don’t know, Pangu jailbreak is a utility that allows to jailbreak devices running iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.2.
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.
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).

iPad 2 issue has not been fixed yet. For those that keep getting stuck on boot logo with iPad 2 models, the team promises that a fix is coming.
We still have to work on the compatibility issue with the iPad 2, but we have been busy celebrating with our family… Tomorrow probably!
Good news for all those who have an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 7 – all of a sudden, evad3rs released an untethered jailbreak for the seventh version of Apple’s mobile operating system. Evasion 7 jailbreak utility was released December 22nd. A kind of a Christmas present from hackers, huh?
In a move that I think caught all of us way off-guard, the evad3rs have just released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7. The team is calling the hack evasi0n7, and it’s compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 7.0 through 7.0.4.
What’s even better is that the iOS 6.1.x users, who previously successfully hacked their devices, can upgrade without losing jailbreak. So if you want to see something new on your iPhone, go ahead and try out jailbroken iOS 7. I’m almost sure you will like it.
