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.
This is step-by-step instructions on how to perform untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.2 firmwares using Pangu for Windows.
This tutorial works for:
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.
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.
As noted by
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.
I’ve got some good news for those iPhone 4s users, who plan to jailbreak their iPhones running iOS 7.1. It is possible to hack the older models of Apple’s smartphones. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you should upgrade to the latest version of iOS right now. And here’s why.
Following Winocm, who has recently posted a
Here’s what he
NGeary14: @iH8sn0w Can you jailbreak 7.1 iPhone 4s or only 4 ??
iH8Sn0w: @NGeary14 well my 4S is jailbroken on 7.1 atm.
Looks like it is possible to jailbreak any iOS device equipped with an Apple A4 or Apple A5 processor. As to the other iPhones and iPads, there’s no information yet.
iH8Sn0w claims that there won’t be any public jailbreak, at least now. That is why I recommend you to stay away from iOS 7.1. Especially if you have an iPhone 5/5c with Apple A6 CPU or iPhone 5s with Apple A7 CPU on board.
Good news for all iPhone 3G and iPod touch 4G owners – a jailbreak tool called p0sixspwn has been updated to support the recently released iOS 6.1.6. Using this small utility, you can perform an untethered jailbreak effortless.
According to what
If you’re currently using an iPhone 3GS or a 4th generation iPod touch running iOS 6.1.x, it’s highly recommended that you update to iOS 6.1.6, and benefit from Apple’s SSL fix. The good news is that you can then use p0sixspwn to enjoy the same untethered jailbreak that was available for iOS 6.1.3 through iOS 6.1.5.
P0sixspwn is a jailbreak tool developed by iH8sn0w and Winocm. It can be downloaded from Cydia’s ‘System’ section. However, before downloading p0sixspwn you need to perform a tethered jailbreak using RedSn0w or any other utility.
Keep in mind that it is recommended that you update to the latest iOS 6.1.6 as soon as possible since it contains a
Looks like it is possible to make any A5(X) device jailbreakable once and forever. Well, at least this is what iH8sn0w tweeted yesterday. What this all means is that your iPhone 4S, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, Apple TV 3G, and iPod touch 5G can be jailbroken literally for life.
“So looks like all my A5(X) devices are fully untethered and jailbroken for life now. ” iH8sn0w, the developer behind Sn0wBreeze and other jailbreak apps, tweeted this afternoon. The comment has caused quite a bit of excitement, as we haven’t seen anything like this in jailbreaking since LimeRa1n.
There’s no information as to how all this stuff works. All we know is that the hacker used a “powerful iBoot exploit.”
Unfortunately (or fortunately, who knows?), iH8sn0w plans not to release the exploit and keep it private, as he says, “for development of future jailbreaks.”
Here’s what the hackers have said:
