Good news iOS users, you can now finally jailbreak your iOS device running on iOS 7.1 or later. A Chinese team has released a new tool to untethered jailbreak your iOS device. The tool, which is available for both Mac and Windows, is called Pangu and is fairly simple to use.
If you’re on iOS 7.1 or higher, then you can jailbreak your iOS device with ease. Supported devices consist of the iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 5th gen, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina display. So yes, pretty much any device capable of running iOS 7.1 or later can be jailbroken using the Pangu tool.
Since this is an untethered jailbreak, you will not have to worry about turning off the device or rebooting. With a tethered jailbreak, you’ll need to connect your device to the computer every single time you want to reboot.
The team behind the Pangu tool is made of four members, Daniel_K4, dm557, windknown, and OGC557, who’ve burned at least 2 exploits to achieve this jailbreak. So that means there are lesser exploits for an iOS 8 jailbreak. Pangu jailbreak has been confirmed to be safe and free of any spyware.
iOS 7.1.2 is currently the latest version, which can also be jailbroken using Pangu 1.2.1. You can download both the Mac and Windows version from Jailbreak Centric’s Downloads page. We’ll have a complete step-by-step tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 with the Pangu tool.
