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.
The Pangu team has updated iOS 7.1.1untethered 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.
You can download Pangu 1.1 for Windows and Mac OS from here. Our famous step-by-step instructions are available here.
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.
You can download Pangu 1.0 for Windows from here. Our famous step-by-step instructions are available here.
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.
Good news for all jailbreakers – looks like Apple’s new iOS 8 is jailbreakable. According to what security expert Stefan Esser (aka i0n1c) has tweeted a couple of hours ago, the guys from Cupertino haven’t fixed the kernel bug used to jailbreak iOS-devices. This means that immediately after the public release of iOS 8 we may have a jailbreak for it.
Last month, i0n1c announced his jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1. Looks like the same utility will be able to hack the devices running iOS 8. However, I don’t think Esser or any other hacker will release a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 or iOS 8 now. You see, this may help Apple to fix the vulnerability used for jailbreaking. This is definitely not the thing we all need, right?
Good news for all jailbreakers: i0n1c has just posted a video showing his new utility for untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. It is called Cyberelevat0r and according to its creator, to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 it uses a recently discovered kernel bug. Nobody knows for sure if the hacker plans to release Cyberelevat0r to public or not. Anyway, let’s take a look at how it works.
The jailbreak, which has not yet been released, is unique in that it uses a kernel bug which is hidden inside functionality that can be easily reached, even from within the iOS application sandbox.
I honestly hope that i0n1c will release its untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1. However, I don’t think that the release will take place before the release of Apple’s iOS 8. You see, the hackers need to make sure that the bug used for jailbreak remains unpatched.
Apple is expected to announce its iOS 8 at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to take place in June. The jailbreak may be released after the conference.
You’ve probably heard about the iOS 7.1.1jailbreak developed by i0n1c and Winocm. As it turns out, there’s another jailbreak. It was developed by the researchers Yeongjin Jang and Tielei Wang.
The jailbreak seems to be legit, however, there’s no official confirmation from trustworthy sources.
Here’s what iClarified writes about the new jailbreak:
Researchers Yeongjin Jang and Tielei Wang of the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC) disclosed that they jailbroke iOS 7.1.1 late last month. Jang (@blue9057), a grad student at Gatech, has posted a video to YouTube demonstrating the jailbreak.
The authors of the jailbreak promise to tell how it works in August. It would be interesting to see how it differs from those jailbreaks developed by i0n1c or Winocm. Anyway, we’ll get such an opportunity only in a couple of months. Let’s wait.
Good news for all jailbreakers -- iOS 7.1.1 has been jailbroken. According to the image shared by famous security researcher Stefan Esser aka i0n1c, the devices running iOS 7.1.1 can be successfully hacked.
What we can see on the image is an iPhone 5c running Cydia 1.1.9. Here’s what the hacker says about the jailbreak (via iClarified):
That iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak is not based on a long vulnerability chain. It uses a single beautiful kernel bug that goes from mobile to kernel.
A couple of minutes after i0n1c, another hacker -- Winocm -- posted a video of a jailbroken iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1.1. You can take a look at the clip below.
The hacker claims that this jailbreak will work on other devices if ‘you put in the effort’.
I don’t know if the jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 will become public or not. Anyway, let’s hope for the best.
