Hello iCla, just got an iPhone 4 with iOS 7.1.2 jailbreak with Pangu_v1.0.exe but, the issue here is that, the Jailbreak is confirmed as WildcardActivated on the iPhone details using iTools but, the jailbreak info says Yes(AFC2 Disabled) . What could be wrong ?

For those users that are planning to Jailbreak on iOS 7.1.2 then I recommend adding this Cydia Source into Cydia after you jailbreak so you don't have to manually input all the Cydia Sources manually. This will automatically add all the best Cydia Sources and give you access to all the best Cydia Tweaks, Themes and Apps for FREE with just a push of a button. Follow the steps below. 1. Open Cydia 2. Tap Sources 3. Tap Edit 4. Tap Add 5. Type this url in the box (cydiasource,n e t) without the spaces and switch coma for a dot in the url. 6. Tap "Add Source" 7. Install the package labelled "All Sources". This will give you all the best Cydia Sources to have access to all the best Tweaks, Apps and Themes for FREE

Although your wizard says that I can Jailbreak my iPhone 5s with IOS 7.1.x using Pangu 1.2.1, yet upon running Pangu software, it says it can work only for IOS 8 ! Now, I'll have to update my iPhone to IOS 8 which I didn't desire...is there any other way to Jailbreak my iPhone 5s on IOS 7.1.1 (Baseband 2.18.02) ? -Anshu

Bro download pangu olderversion you can jailbreak via that
Anshu
Anshu - November 12, 2014 at 1:16pm
Tried older version of Pangu too , namely 1.1 - didn't work :-( . Could it be my baseband version that's preventing it ? I saw another note n the newer Pangu guide that I should turn AIRPLANE MODE ON when jailbreaking. I shall try that too (just read the screenshot - haven't tried yet).

Thanks a lot for wonderful guide. I successfully jailbreak iphone 4S-32 GB. Great news is Pongu 1.2.1 shows English language. Bad news is all my installed apps are hidden. Usage shows data exists but no app shown on springboard. Please help me in this matter. Thanks.

After following the above instructions I installed the new SIM (from a new carrier) and the iPhone prompted: "The SIM card that you currently have installed in this iPhone is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server. This is not a hardware issue with the iPhone. Please insert another SIm card from a supported carrier or request that this iPhone be unlocked by your carrier. Please contact Apple for more information." Please advise Thx

Maybe its because you didnt actually unlock your phone from your previous carrier so you still cant insert a sim from another carrier, Jailbreaking doesnt unlock your phones carrier status.

Isn't freeing your phone from its original carrier is what jailbreaking is supposed to mean and also what its supposed? so what does jailbreak really mean now???

Jailbreaking is give yourself full control over your phone's files instead of being restricted by Apple.
