  • How to Jailbreak Your iOS 7.1/iOS 7.1.1 Device With Pangu 1.2.1 for Mac OS X & Windows


    This Windows and Mac OS X guide will teach you how to jailbreak various devices using Pangu 1.2.0. Note this is an UNTETHERED JAILBREAK, meaning you can reboot your phone just like you normally would.

    This guide should be used with the following device/firmware combinations (if you're not sure, here's how to find your iOS firmware version and how to find your iOS device type):


    • iPhone 4 | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPhone 4s | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPhone 5 | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPhone 5s | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPhone 5c | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPod touch 5g | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPad 2 | 7.1/7.1.1
    • The New iPad (third generation) | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPad With Retina Display (fourth generation) | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPad Mini | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPad Mini with Retina Display | 7.1/7.1.1
    • iPad Air | 7.1/7.1.1


    The Pangu jailbreak that was released earlier this week for iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 wasn't without its fair share of bugs, and on Sunday, the team released an updated version of the tool (version 1.1.0) with more stability and improvements, support for Mac OS X, and better yet, full English support! Version 1.2.0 was released on August 9th!

    To use this jailbreak, you will need the latest version of iTunes, a device listed above that is running iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1, a Mac or Windows machine, a USB sync cable, and the latest version of Pangu. You can download the latest version of Pangu for Mac OS X or Windows below:




    At this point, you should disable your passcode on your iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 device, and plug it in with your provided USB sync cable.

    When you download and open the Pangu application, you will get the interface below:



    The application should automatically detect what device you have connected, and the firmware it's running. This information should be shown at the top of the application. If it's correct, you can go ahead and click on the black "Jailbreak" button. When you do, the application should then look like this:



    The application is asking you to go into your iOS device's Date & Time settings and change it from "Set Automatically" to manually. You will need to enter "June 2nd" as the date for the jailbreak under Settings>General>Date & Time to proceed:



    After you've set the date to June 2nd manually, the jailbreak tool will proceed:



    When you get this far, you will notice a new white "Pangu" application on your Home Screen. You will need to tap on it to proceed with the jailbreak. When you try to open it, you will be asked if you're sure you want to open it tap on "Continue" to keep going. Once the application opens, do not close it just leave it and let it sit:



    The interface of the Pangu application on your computer should start moving along after a few minutes:



    It can take a few minutes for the tool to go through the jailbreak process. When the device is ready, it will respring on its own. Do not attempt to disconnect the device, or close the Pangu application, as this will disturb the jailbreak process.

    Soon enough, the iOS device will try and reboot:



    While the device reboots, the Pangu application on your computer might turn gray, do not panic, as it's just waiting for your device to reboot so it can be seen again:



    Don't touch it just yet. When it starts back up, it will respring again.

    When it's done, you'll get this as your Pangu window on your computer:



    Your device should now be jailbroken, and you'll find that the Pangu application is gone and a Cydia icon has been added:



    When you open Cydia, it will reload data and your device will respring again. After that, you're ready to start adding sources and install jailbreak tweaks!

    Enjoy!

      How does one get the third party App Store that came with the first jailbreak on this jailbreak?

      The only way this worked for me was to do a complete restore in iTunes and set up as a new phone. From there I restored from backup and all is well.

      I was successful in JB'ing my iPhone 4 with the first version of Pangu (plus I unchecked the box AND installed CompletePPSync Remover). Am I good - meaning does this new version have any impact? Is it recommended that I re-Jailbreak or should I let things be? Thanks

      If everything is OK, there is no need to upgrade the jailbreak. As a matter of fact, there will be an update directly in Cydia, so when it arrives, just run it as any other tweak update.

      It's no longer available in the English version of Pangu, and we don't assist with piracy here on ModMyi.

      An updated Pangu untether package should be up on Cydia soon.

      They don't care that they're wasting exploits because they're confident that they'll find new ones. This is both encouraging and worrying.

      Excellent! Jailbreak done no problems. Wish developers would do some quick testing and update their pkg in Cydia.

      Yet apparently they didn't burn any new exploits to do this by setting the date of the device to an earlier date, a method other devs will not use anyway.

      I think I was getting the timeout when my phone would sleep. I changed the auto-lock setting to Never and it worked like a charm.

      Is anyone noticing home button lag after jailbreaking? When I press to close an app on my 5s 1 out of 3 times it takes a good 1-2 seconds to close and wasn't like this until after jailbreak?

      Can I update my iPad 4 (with retina display) OTA? I remember that not being possible in the past. Or, do I need to download the full IPSW file, restore, and the rest?
