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..

It only took a couple of hours to figure out, passcode must be removed. I had to delete exchange email account, the email account had a policy from the company to mandate a simple passcode. Once I deleted the email account, Pangu ran perfectly for 7.1.2

Thanks. You are right. I did a full restore and the jaibreak from scratch and no issues. Sorry for the Alert but I am sure it will be useful to somebody else.

If you are experiencing the timeout error. Fix: run pangu, once it says rebooting iPhone do a hard restart meaning hold home and power button til phone cuts off and power back on. This works, some iPhone take longer than others to shut down causing the error.

Hi Pangu developers, I just jailbreaked my IPad mini with Pangu. It was very easy and very quick. Thanks for making us the life easier. But, I do have a small problem. I tried many times to install any apps, but it was not possible to install. Only I got message, unsuccessfully install, error .... Could you help me on this issue. Thnx to everyone.

Tried it several times, get all the way to the end but doesn't seem to put the Cydia app onto spring board. Says that the jailbreak timed out (after the reboot)
