Pangu8 1.1.0 jailbreak tool notice

Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how to jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 8 or later using the newly updated Pangu8 1.1.0 jailbreak tool on Windows. You’re going to need a Windows PC or know how to run a Virtual Machine to be able to jailbreak using a Mac. Not to worry though, a Mac version should be out very soon.

Pangu Team iOS 8 - iOS 8.1 untethered jailbreak

To begin, Pangu8 1.1.0 is the complete iOS 8 jailbreak solution and comes loaded with Cydia. In the previous version, you had to install Cydia manually or through the Pangu app. Now, all you have to do is follow our tutorial and you’ll have a jailbroken iOS device in no time.

As always, it’s safe to make a backup before we proceed. Turn off Passcode Lock or Touch ID, disable Find My iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and Enable Airplane Mode. According to the Pangu team, switching on Airplane Mode can give a 100 percent success rate. Let’s begin, shall we?

  1. Download Pangu8 1.1.0 from our Downloads Page.
  2. Right click on the Pangu tool, select Run as Administrator.pangu8 1.1.0 bundled with cydia installer
  3. Connect your iOS device to the PC. The Pangu tool should recognize your device immediately and the Start Jailbreak button should turn blue. Click on it.
  4. You will be greeted by this page below, click on ‘Already did.’Pangu-1-1-0-iOS 8-step
  5. The jailbreak process will now begin. Sit back and wait till the progress bar reaches the end, in which case your device will reboot.
  6. After reboot, you should be greeted by a familiar Cydia icon on the Homescreen.

Voila! You’ve just jailbroken your iOS device, time to try out some new tweaks.

pangu8 1.1.0 bundled with cydia installer

A new version of the Pangu iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 untethered jailbreak is now available for download. This updated tool will automatically install Cydia after the jailbreak process, no need to install it manually or from the Pangu app.

Pangu-1-1-0-iOS 8

Pangu8 v1.1.0 is easy to use, similar to the iOS 7.1.x jailbreak tool. Connect your iOS device, disable Find My iDevice, turn off Passcode Lock/Touch ID, enable Airplane Mode and hit the jailbreak button. In no time, you’ll have a jailbroken device with Cydia installed, ready to be used. Moreover, the new version is in English and gets rid of the PP installer.

The jailbreak tool is still only available for Windows users, but a Mac version will be out very soon. If you’ve been holding off on jailbreaking your iOS device because of an incomplete installer, no need to do so anymore. You can download Pangu8 1.1.0 for Windows from our downloads section.

Air Traffic Control is a jailbreak tweak developed by Clay Freeman that will allow you to disable Airplane Mode alerts when you are launching applications.

A free jailbreak tweak called CalcBase by iOS developer FreezingFyre allows you to change between Bases 2, 10 and 16 in the stock Calculator app. All you have to do is simply swipe your iOS device’s screen to convert. CalcBase requires iOS 7 or higher and has no options to configure. You can download the tweak from Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

ConvoPics – Enables Conversation List Pictures

ConvoPics Jailbreak Tweak For iOS

ConvoPics is a  jailbreak tweak for iOS 8 that enables the iPhone 6 Plus’ conversation list pictures on the stock Messages app for all iOS devices. There are no options to configure for this tweak and you can download it from the BigBoss repo in Cydia for free.

Pangu App Updated With Cydia Installer

Jailbreakers, we have some good news for you. The Pangu team has updated their iOS 8 -8.1 jailbreak and added a Cydia installer to it. If you recently jailbroke your iOS device, but weren’t courageous enough to install Cydia manually, it’s alright. You can now simply install the latest Cydia version 1.1.14 from the Pangu app.

Pangu-Cydia

After jailbreaking your device on iOS 8, you must have noticed the Pangu app on your homescreen. If you open it now, you should see an option ‘Install Cydia,’ which should install Cydia without any issues. That’s it. No more installing Cydia manually using FTP clients and what not.

If you haven’t jailbroken yet, you can follow our simple step-by-step tutorial. Once you’re done jailbreaking, you can easily install Cydia from the Pangu app. No word on a Mac version yet and we’re not sure when the Pangu team will integrate Cydia into their jailbreak tool.

cydia installer 1.1.14 released

After a long wait, Saurik has released an updated version of Cydia, which fixes many of the bugs that users have been facing with the older version. As you all know, the Pangu Team released an iOS 8 – 8.1 jailbreak last week that didn’t come with Cydia. You had to install Cydia manually and make the jailbreak worthwhile, but Cydia Substrate caused a lot of problems. Despite pushing out incremental updates for Cydia Substrate, the iOS 8 jailbreak was quite buggy. There were bootloops when setting a Passcode, random resprings, app crashes and what not.

The new version of Cydia Installer 1.1.14 will take care of all the problems. If you’re jailbroken, Cydia will notify you of the update, install and you’re good to go. You can now set a Passcode and not worry about your phone rebooting and going into bootloop.

Cydia 1.1.14

Saurik has also added some other features to the new version. There’s multitasking support on iOS 8, popup blocker, iPhone 6 support, landscape mode on Cydia and a few others. Below is the full changelog for Cydia 1.1.14:

iOS 8 Passcode Compatibility

Cydia no longer causes your device to lock up while booting on iOS 8 when you use a passcode. We recommend you use a passcode for security.

(Under Settings, go to “Touch ID & Passcode”, and “Turn Passcode On”.)

If you have installed unsupported stashing modifications, you may want to restore and jailbreak again, instead of directly installing this update (those modifications are unsupported).

Multitasking Support on iOS 8

Cydia now backgrounds almost like a regular application (but only on iOS 8). This has been a major architectural change: please alert us to any issues.

This allows you to switch back/forth between Cydia and other applications (such as Safari, or the Google two-factor authentication app) without losing your package selection state.

New Window and Hijack Blocking

One of the biggest complaints about Cydia in the last year has been a new kind of ad seen on some repositories: a sudden redirect to the App Store.

Cydia now blocks “popups” and asks the user before opening the App Store.

Partial iPhone 6 Plus Support

Cydia supports rotation on the iPhone 6 Plus and has a new @3x icon and tabbar. Cydia renders at the native resolution on both the 6 and 6 Plus.

Videos Work Again (on iOS 7.1-8.1)

Cydia on iOS 7.1 had an issue where playing video would cause the device to “lock up”. This bug has finally been fixed! The new iOS 8 video issue (a YouTube error message) is also fixed.

Localization Works Now on iOS 8

Users of Cydia 1.1.13 (only available via a manual installation process) may have noticed Cydia only displayed in English :(. This has been fixed! Yay!

Queue Status is “Less Incorrect”

Sometimes Cydia would not have packages queued but claim it did, or would have packages queued and claim it did not; this happens less ;P.

The Pangu jailbreak still hasn’t been updated though, which means you’ll still have to install Cydia manually. You can follow our tutorial here to do that, then upgrade to the latest version 1.1.14.

Update #1: Cydia Installer has been updated yet again, now at version 1.1.15 and includes:

Cydia 1.1.15 is a bug fix release

  • Fix incompatibility with cache wipers (such as iCleaner) that cause Cydia to crash when you try to run it after.
  • Correct rotation to only on tablets to match Apple’s UI style guidelines.
  • Make Installed tab icon consistent.
ReachAll cydia tweak demoed

One of the new features available for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is called Reachability. When activated with a double tap on the TouchID Home button, the screen slides down so you can access the elements on top of the screen. ReachAll is a new tweak that brings this functionality to all iOS 8 compatible devices, even those without TouchID.

ReachAll

Reachability makes it easier to use the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with one hand. The ReachAll tweak lets you use this feature on older devices with a smaller display and could be useful for those who have trouble reaching the top of the screen. This tweak works on devices with or without TouchID. On devices with TouchID such as the iPhone 5s, simply double tap on the Home button to use. For devices without a TouchID, an onscreen button enables this functionality. It works throughout iOS and can be dismissed by tapping on the screen.

You can enable/disable ReachAll from the Settings app, where you can also enable the Tap Box and change its position on the screen. This is what Reachability looks like on a 4-inch iOS device.

reachall-screen

ReachAll is available in the BigBoss repo for free and requires iOS 8 or later. Try it out and let us know if you find it useful.

SBFlip cydia tweak demoed

With the release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple released some device specific features such as Reachability and Lanscape Mode. The iPhone 6 Plus, due to its large size, isn’t easy to use with one hand. On the 6 Plus, Landscape Mode lets you change the orientation of the homescreen so you can use the device easily. A new Cydia tweak called SBFlip now brings this Landscape Mode to any iOS 8 compatible device.

SBFlip

SBFlip adds a landscape mode to your homescreen, but from some testing, it only works good with the iPhone 6. I noticed that on older iOS devices, even on a 4-inch display, the apps overlap each other when in landscape mode. Checkout the screenshot below, notice the dock?

SBFlip-screen

If you’re an iPhone 6 user and would like to have Landscape Mode on your device, then you need to try out this tweak. SBFlip is available in the BigBoss repo for free and works on iOS 8 and later only. Want to jailbreak your iPhone 6? Follow our tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 8 and install Cydia manually.

In case you haven’t jailbroken your iOS device on iOS 8.x yet, you can follow our guide on how to jailbreak using the Pangu tool and install Cydia manually afterwards. If you come across any other tweaks that are working on iOS 8, but not listed here, then do let us know.

Pangu 8.0-8.1.x untether jailbreak package update released

Last week was pretty good for jailbreakers as a brand new iOS 8 jailbreak was released by the Pangu Team. Although the jailbreak came with a bunch of problems as it didn’t come with Cydia and caused various issues for users. Some of the bugs include Cydia Substrate not loading on reboot and causing apps to crash, Safari and iMessage bugs etc. Now, the team has released an update for the jailbreak on the Pangu app.

Pangu-ios8-update

The update claims to fix all the bugs mentioned above and is available via the Pangu app. Those who have already jailbroken your iOS devices can open the Pangu app, tap on the Manager tab at the bottom and install the Pangu 8.0-8.0.x Untether. If you’re yet to jailbreak, you can follow our easy guide on how to jailbreak iOS 8 and install Cydia manually.

For all those who have jailbroken, this is a recommended update. Make sure you turn off your Passcode before installing this update, as it can cause boot loop if left on. The Pangu tool hasn’t been updated yet and is still only available for Windows users. After you install this update, you’ll be asked to reboot your iOS device.

Have you updated yet and has it fixed the bugs?

Apple File Conduit 2 (AFC2) available in Cydia

AFC or Apple File Conduit is the means by which Apple gives iTunes and iPhoto read and write ability for media on your iOS device. However, you don’t get access to all the files with the regular AFC. Hence, Saurik has released AFC2, which gives the user complete access to all the files on their iOS device. Of course, you’ll have to be jailbroken to install AFC2 on your device.

afc2

Those who have already jailbroken their iOS device on iOS 8 or later and want complete access to their files from their PC or Mac, should install AFC2. You can use third-party software such as iExplorer and iFunbox to transfer files to and from your iOS device using a USB connection. This can be highly useful, but can also cause security issues for some as you get full root access via USB.

Nevertheless, if you want to install AFC2 on your jailbroken iOS device, search for Apple File Conduit 2 on Cydia. Once it’s installed, you can use tools like iFunbox to move, edit and browse all files on your iOS device. AFC2 is compatible will all versions of iOS, including the latest 8.1 release. If you’re concerned about the security issues, then you probably shouldn’t install it. Since AFC2 is a complicated package, some users may face installation issues.

Have you installed AFC2 on your iOS device? Is it useful for you?
