The Chinese group of hackers who presented the only untethered iOS 7.1.2, 7.1.1 and 7.1 jailbreak also promised to release Pangu Cydia package v.0.3 with fixes to problems with sandbox. This happened a couple of days ago, and then… the package was removed.
Pangu jailbreak fix for Cydia was a long-awaited launch. Users who jailbroke their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch had issues with sandbox and reboot loop problems. The bugs were experienced by particular models, but since they existed users wished to get Pangu sandbox issue fix along with reboot loop fix.
Pangy Cydia package which was available in Cydia included afc2 extra. With its help users could access heir filesystem. Then the package called Pangu 7.1-7.1.x Untether 0.3 was gone. What has happened and why has it occurred?
The second update of package for Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.2 and earlier firmware versions was with bugs, and the third upgrade seems to have the same problem. What was supposed to fix the problems brought new issues, and according to Cydia creator Saurik hackers from Pangu team asked him to remove the package version 0.3.
If you have installed v.0.3 you are advised to delete it. You better use package 0.1 and wait till the Chinese team comes up with a new solution. As Saurik notes, he felt that there would be problems with the package from the very beginning. He mentions that anything that asks users to reboot can cause problems eventually. Some files have bugs and this is why Pangu package for Cydia bug fix failed to work to a lot of users.
You might remember how users explained crashes in version 0.2 with the light sensor. No one could explain reasons for 0.3 version bugs, so Pangu decided to take it down and find a new fix.
Since both iOS 7.1.1 and the new iOS 7.1.2 are jailbroken with the Chinese Pangu program, devs hurry up to update their jailbroken tweaks to support these latest public firmware versions. Filippo Bigarella, for example, has already offered his new Springtomize 3 for iOS 7.1.1 and 7.1.2. This Italian dev is always fast to present the changes to his popular application.
If you have been using this program in the past you can get the Springtomize 3 update for free. Just download it from Cydia and it will work for your iPhone or iPad. However, all new users have to pay for this jailbreak app.
Cydia store has the Springtomize 3 upgrade for iOS 7.1.x devices for $2.99. This program offers some interesting features to users. Firstly, you can choose the darker background color for different folders. Secondly, it allows you playing with colors for as much as you like.
The new update fixes some previous bugs. You can change nearly everything about your smartphone or tablet device once you get the app. You can surely find some free tweaks but Springtomize offers much more as it combines numerous jailbreak applications letting you customize your interface, status bar, sliders, dock, lock screen, icons and a lot of other elements.
The iOS 7.1.1, 7.1.2 jailbreak application comes in 20 languages. You might like to get it once you jailbreak iPhone 7.1.2 with Pangu exploit that is free and seems to work even though it has been launched by unknown hackers from China.
Pangu hackers from China have updated their Pangu iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak for Mac users. This program was previously available to Windows users only and it came with Chinese language, while now you can enjoy the English version of the only public exploit for version 7.1.1.
iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users can download 7.1.1 jailbreak for Mac and Windows from the official site. Hackers assure their minor update also solves some problems discovered in the program designed for PC owners.
The untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 has made a lot of people happy and some famous hackers upset. For example, i0n1c says he is not happy since the Chinese hackers used his exploit. Another hacker, BlackGeek says he wishes to release his tool for iOS 8 beta jailbreak using Pangu creation.
Version 1.1 can help you jailbreak either iOS 7.1 or 7.1.1 iDevice. The program should work on all iPhones starting from iPhone 4 and up to 5S, iPod touch 5G and iPads beginning with iPad 2. As Chinese team notes, their update stops using i0n1c exploit and begins using another bug leak.
If you are not afraid of risking [the exploit used in this update is not known while previous i0n1c hole was safe to use] you can download iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak on Mac and test it on your iDevice.
It’s your decision. The program works good, as users note, and is simple to follow as you will get on-screen instructions after you launch the .exe file. Just create a backup of your gadget in case anything goes wrong and enjoy staying jailbroken!
Pangu 7.1.1 jailbreak that has reportedly burnt at least two exploits as hacker Stefan Esser posted on his Twitter might help another developer BlackGeek to release his program for iOS 8 jailbreak. The creator of Geeksn0w, BlackGeek, is now teasing the jailbreaking community with his possible plans to publicly launch iOS 8 beta jailbreak for first and second betas.
It is hard to say now whether this hacker has already found a way how to jailbreak iOS 8 beta 1 and 2 himself as he says that he needs an official permission for the Chinese Pangu team for using their program. We can’t say at this moment when exactly iOS 8 untethered jailbreak is to be released for public.
Developers are now testing the new firmware 8 that should be launched somewhere in September [some sources mention September 17 as the official iOS 8 release date]. Users who are not afraid of taking risks have also installed the new betas on their iPhones and iPads without a dev account with Apple through iTunes trick.
You can look for new or keep an eye on Geeksn0w creator’s news [http://www.geeksn0w.it/Pangu_unofficial/index.html] as the untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 might appear unexpectedly just like it happened with iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak. No one even thought that the solution would become public so soon as all the famous hacker’s teams said they are preserving their exploits for future jailbreaks and don’t want to waste them on the current 7.1.1 version.
For now, BlackGeek assures that he took the same exploit that became the basis for Pangu creation for his program. He also changed and improved the resources use by the Pangu team of hackers from China.
In the past, the jailbreaking community stayed away of launching public jailbreak solutions for beta firmware versions because this way Apple gets a change of closing the exploits before it officially releases its new big update.
The early iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak untethered presented by Chinese hackers make people happy and scared at once. Some were eager to run the new jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 iPhone 4 / 4S / 5 / 5S / 5c and others decide to wait until another solution is present by trusted source.
Evad3rs, iH8sn0w and others are silent at the moment. They seem to be working on the new development and at the same time they are good at jailbreaking their personal gadgets only. The public haven’t seen any new public developments from them but everyone is waiting and hoping that iOS 8 jailbreak will follow the official firmware release this fall.
While you have a good opportunity of running jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 with untethered status [meaning you can easily reboot without losing the jailbreak until you install the newer firmware version], we wish to know whether you are eager to take this opportunity or not.
Are you afraid of running the Chinese exploit or will you wait for another jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 iPhone 5 and other smartphone models? Do you trust Pangu from China or not?
How much do you like to stay jailbroken with Cydia store and multiple opportunities of installing different third-party applications, games and hacks?
If you jailbroke at once and didn’t know about one box you had to uncheck, you can fix the problem with having one pirated app store on your smartphone. This is not too difficult as Taig can be removed if you follow the instruction on how to delete PPSync from iPhone jailbroken with Pangu. This doesn’t take much time and you have no problems at all. Cydia will stay on your Home screen.
Besides, as iH8sn0w and MuscleNerd tweeted after Pangu was launched, this program is safe to use as it comes with no spyware / malware.
Have you already jailbroken you iPhone 5S, 5c, 5, 4 or 4S with the new untethered Pangu tool? A lot of users have tried using this unexpected Chinese program and are now in search for the updated 7.1.1 jailbreak tweaks.

iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak untethered for iPhone 5S / 5c / 4S / 5 / 4 is not available to public yet though several hackers managed to create programs that can jailbreak this firmware version. Hackers have added videos of their jailbroken smartphones to YouTube and mentioned the happy news via Twitter accounts. Once Winocm and i0n1c have proved that iPhone 5S jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 is possible, the exploit was developed by two followers, Tielei Wang and Yeongjin Jang from GTISC.
The video that lasts for about 4 minutes displays the jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 iPhone 5S in action. Mr. Jang has also shown how he installs a program distantly on his smartphone. The unsigned application works on a jailbroken device.
Unlike jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 untethered from i0n1c, the exploit found by GTISC hackers is tethered. This is still the jailbreak and even though it requires to use a recovery program after each reboot it still can support jailbroken tweaks and apps.
According to Jang, he used the sandbox bypass, root and codesign bypass to jailbreak his iPhone 5S. It is not know whether this hacker used the similar jailbreaking method as i0n1c and winocm, as he gives no explanations of the exact process
While Apple has just released the iOS 8 which might be jailbroken in the future, hackers keep working on jailbreaking previous firmware version. Stefan Essar [i0n1c] has created iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak untethered program that works on his iPhone 5c.
He has even posted a video that proves untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 to be real. The program is named Cyberelevat0r. The video isn’t too long. It just displays all the features and changes released in this firmware version and Cydia on the Home screen.
iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak Untethered Shown by Hacker i0n1c
You can also notice the About menu that confirms the smartphone is truly jailbroken and this is a working iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak for the iPhone 5c. The gadget also shows different programs being launched, including iFile app and Cydia app store. The status of this jailbreak is untethered. Hacker reboots his cell phone and opens Cydia once again to confirm this fact.
No matter how great this jailbreak can be once becoming public, it is most likely that Essarwon’t release it and iOS 7.1 jailbreak Evasi0n update or other program will come sooner. This hacker has helped in utility development in the past but he doesn’t like doing this now. His discovery, however, can help the Evad3rs team or pod2g hacker to create and launch jailbreaks for iOS 8 and 7.1.1 later this year.
For now you can simply watch Cyberelevat0r jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 posted by i0n1c. You should also remember that there are no public jailbreak for versions 7.1, 7.1.1 and 8 beta yet so any website that promises you such an offer is just a scam. Once the jailbreaks are released to iPhone and iPad users, they will be free to use and all hackers will mention the news on their Twitter accounts.
