Although the numerous jailbreaking masters have been reasonably silent concerning a possible untethered jailbreak for the all-new iOS 8, the Mandarin group Pangu has actually merely provided some extremely encouraging news. Although the collective cut short of placing any kind of type of period on when the globe might view its first jailbreak on the brand-new software, the group did claim that it’s well on the way to breaking the brand-new OS, and also considered that Pangu accountabled for bringing Cydia to individuals relatively stranded on iOS 7.1. x, we’re quietly excited concerning these claims.

Taking into consideration the absence of commentary from the jailbreak scene among the general public launch of iOS 8, lots of were questioning whether Apple could have thrown hackers a curve-ball. Yet with Pangu having actually noted of its purpose to free the new firmware in a Weibo posting, at least we now recognize that the sphere is rolling.


The post on Weibo, translated by Google, checks out:

[Reminder] Just 1 day just before iOS 8 official release, suppose that devices except iPhone 4 can’t be restored with 7.1.2 firmware. If you really want to jailbreak kindly grab the last moment. For iOS 8, we are currently heading.

It does not make a lot of sense when equated, however the last sentence is very clear, and with a lot of experienced developers as well as safety and security experts most likely to begin scraping around for ventures also, the possibilities of an iOS 8 jailbreak appear fairly high.

Fairly bit was known of the Pangu team back when Evad3rs came through with its preliminary Evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 7, but simply as it looked as though points were petering out in expectancy for iOS 8, Pangu’s energy made certain that every version of iOS 7 was jailbreakable.

Although it was a little unstable at very first – – the majority of the steps were composed in Chinese as well as the very first run of Pangu set up a dodgy Application Store-like energy for buccaneers – – it was quickly tidied up, as well as if you ‘d still prefer to jailbreak on iOS 7.1. x, you could do so using the latest version of Pangu.
