Pangu Untethered Jailbreak of iOS 8 - iOS 8.1 Released!

Pangu Untethered Jailbreak of iOS 8 - iOS 8.1 Released!

Posted October 22, 2014 at 12:06pm by iClarified
The team behind the Pangu untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1-7.1.2 has released a Pangu8 untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1.

Currently a jailbreak utility is only available for Windows and at this time Cydia and Mobile Substrate are not working.

Here's the translated details via reddit user zsm1703.

PanGu iOS 8 Jailbreak Tool(pangu.io)
1. Preparations for jailbreak.
Backup before using pangu jailbreak tool. Although this tool is tested successfully on most devices, we still hope you backup your data to avoid data loss. Please turn off the screen password lock and close the "find my iPhone" feature in the iCloud settings before jailbreak.

2. the firmware upgraded via OTA may cause failure.
The firmware upgraded via OTA will have a lot of influence factors. If you have several failed attempts, Please try to download the latest firmware and restore your iOS devices. In addition, Pangu (iOS 8) tool now add a function to restore iOS devices and execute automatic activation, you can try click the jailbreak button after restoring, and Pangu will automatically activate your device and do jailbreak.

3. "Storage capacity is almost full."?
This is because the jailbreak program will write important files into the system directory and cause alarm, it will not affect the result. When the Cydia be compatible, click on the Cydia will launch the directory moving process.

4. About afc2?
Because Apple made a lot of adjustments to the system, you cannot use afc2 plug-ins at present.

5. Do not delete "com.apple.mobile.softwareupdated.plist"
Do not delete "com.apple.mobile.softwareupdated.plist", otherwise it will cause system failure.

6. Processing method of jailbreak failure
Please enable the Airplane mode and close Wifi and then try to jailbreak, or if not successful, please restart your devices and then try. If it still fails, please use the Pangu restore function and jailbreak again.

Saurik has already indicated that he will work hard to get Cydia compatible as soon as possible.

So, windknown has contacted me, about a half hour ago, via e-mail. He has told me one of the issues that is keeping Substrate from working on the device, which will probably require me to build a little binary patch for dyld as part of the Substrate installation sequence. This was the worst possible day for me, as I'm traveling back to Santa Barbara today (I'm currently in Texas, having come here to give a talk at The Big Android BBQ), which means this will take me a little longer than I'd like, but clearly getting Cydia and Substrate working on iOS 8 is my highest priority. I thankfully think that I actually can start working a little on one of the Substrate issues using an iOS 7 "model" based on the information provided by windknown, which means I'll lose less time to not having all of my devices with me. (I currently have no clue why Cydia itself is not functioning, but will find out later today when I can see it myself.)

Once its confirmed that the jailbreak is safe and Cydia and Mobile Substrate are working we will posted detailed instructions on how to jailbreak your device.

Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

The Pangu team has pulled the original download link, likely to address some bugs. We recommend you follow iClarified to find out when a safe version is available.

Update x2:
Pangu8 1.0.1 has been released resolving an issue that could cause the loss of your photos. You can download Pangu8 here.

Update x3:
Saurik has now released a compatible version of Cydia! However, it has yet to be bundled into Pangu8.

This should have been passed around to inside jailbreak teams / Cydia programmers. IMHO not a public ready release. :(
Seth - October 29, 2014 at 5:37pm
A jailbreak without cydia? .... What's the point?

Do you have to restore if you restore and when you want to get rid of the jailbreak (eg software update)

You can't yet they haven't released a english version yet this is for developers. They still need to add cydia and some other stuff for a full working untethered jailbreak.
Crrafty - October 23, 2014 at 3:07pm
The English instructions are in the article you are commenting on...

And if you are so concerned with security why on earth would you jailbreak. I'm sure a few of those free apps have eyes and ears... So if u plan on doing any kind of transactions involving money DO NOT JB

I have a 3GS with apple pay enabled and got 2 of my credit cards stored in it. Can I use pangu and Jailbreak it ? Is it safe ? I am little worried. Please help
Techno - October 23, 2014 at 3:50am
Yeah right!! 3GS is version 5.1. Go away!
iLost - October 23, 2014 at 5:04am
But I heard there are some software technique you can use in 3GS and make apple pay enabled. Google it and see
urherenow - October 23, 2014 at 5:54am
Apple pay requires NFC. It's hardware, not just software. So yea... you guys are on crack.
iLost - October 23, 2014 at 6:51am
Looks like 3GS has hidden NFC module inside. I don't know if its true. Just heard about it
iLost - October 23, 2014 at 2:28pm
OMG, just googled it and got the solution. Installed thinking that its fake. And you know what, after installation "voooooooiiiiiiiillllllaaaaaa" it works. And just to test that I have done my first purchase in App Store. Oooooo lalala. Why do I have to buy i6 just for apple pay ? My 3GS is super star.
iOSjuggalo - October 23, 2014 at 12:08am
I've been waiting to update my iPhone 5S, I still must wait until Mac OS tool is released. Although iOS 8 has a lot of cool features, it still doesn't allow me the tweek of extra rows of icons & folder within folders. The race is on - hopefully stable JB is out before Apple patches....
l8terd8z - October 22, 2014 at 9:51pm
If I'm running version 7.0.4 on an iPhone 5s, how can I jailbreak my device?
TechnoGeek - October 22, 2014 at 11:15pm
Do a search on iclarified and you'll find the version for your phone?
Hiccup - October 23, 2014 at 6:22am
use evasion 7 jailbreak ios 7.0.x
bigbatica - October 22, 2014 at 9:45pm
have it installed and callerid works on ios 8, just to know... thank you pangu
Sympathy - October 22, 2014 at 8:47pm
I dont trust this. Especially when i have 5 of my credit/debit cards stored into my iPhone 6 Plus, i wouldnt bother jailbreaking unless its from very reputable team. Pengu is still shady and too young to trust. And they are chinese with no public identification.
odedoo1 - October 22, 2014 at 8:34pm
So true why not wait for iOS 8.3 I have no idea, it's just plain stupid this race.
really? - October 22, 2014 at 9:21pm
Your kidding right? ios 8.3 wont be out till mid 2015 most likely.
venicej - October 22, 2014 at 8:04pm
how much do you trust your jailbreak team?
Gppas - October 22, 2014 at 7:54pm
