A jailbreak for 7.1.x has been released!

Hey everybody! Mekul is back with a exciting new post, which you probably all know by the title. Yes ladies and gentlemen! iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1 and 7.1.2 untethered jailbreak has been released. Before you jump ahead and download it right now, you need to know some information.

Is it safe?

If you are using Pangu version 1.1 then you don’t have to worry, but if you downloaded the original version, I recommend that you read this. The program that you use to jailbreak your iDevice is Chinese, and I haven’t heard of this program before, which means I would approach with caution. I have heard that the jailbreak is free of malware, but still would approach with caution. On Pangu 1.0, there is a box that is ticked and you should un-tick it because it will install third-party software, like PP Sync. It also uses an expired enterprise certificate, which the evasi0n avoided this due to legal reasons.

How do I jailbreak?

Follow the instructions on Pangu’s english website. You should always make a backup on iTunes first.

What devices are supported?

All devices that support iOS 7.1.x.

When will tweaks and apps be updated?

Most tweaks and apps will be updated soon on Cydia, but there is a shared document made by iAdam1n about all the compatible tweaks.

What exploits are used?

There are two exploits used, which could of (and possibly planned) been used on an iOS 8 jailbreak but was used on this version of iOS. It will be harder to find an exploit because Apple will likely patch the vulnerability in a future update.

Is this unthethered?

Yes this is an untethered jailbreak.

What third party apps are installed if you check the box?

It installs an app called PP Sync, which is the Chinese version of AppSync. If you don’t know what AppSync is, it is a place where you can pirate apps and sync apps between iTunes which I do not support. PP Sync also causes instability and causes crashes on apps.

I accidentally left the box checked, what do I do?

Karen Tsai has made a tweak called Complete PPSync Remover. Add the repo http://cydia.angelxwind.net/ and search for the tweak.

What is the link?

The site is en.pangu.io and download from the mirrors. I do not recommend that you download Pangu from any other websites than the ones on the site.

That is all from me. Thank you for reading. More posts coming throuout the week. Mekul
