Pangu iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Released to the Public
On Monday, a new jailbreak tool called Pangu from a group of Chinese hackers was released to the public that could jailbreak untethered iOS 7.1.1.
Pangu works on:
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4s
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 5s
- iPad 2
- iPad with retina display
- iPad Air
- iPad Mini
- iPad Mini with retina display
- iPod touch 5g
The jailbreak tool can be had from the Pangu Web site. Currently, only the Windows download link works, but there is a Mac OS X download button that looks to not be functional yet, indicating that a Mac OS X version of the tool is coming in the future.
Since the Web site is mostly in Chinese and hard to follow, we'll provide a link to the Windows download below:
Pangu 1.0 for Windows
Pangu does jailbreak your device successfully and install Cydia, but it will also try to install a piracy store along with it. Users can opt out of the piracy store when using the jailbreak tool (and we would recommend you opt out of installing it!)
Well-known iOS hacker ih8sn0w mentions that apart from the piracy store, which users CAN opt out of, Pangu does not offer any security risks for the user:

Is this a safe one?

Has anyone tried it yet in Parallels on a Mac?
One caveat I can think of right off the bat is that few if any JB tweaks have been tested under 7.1.x since the latest JB OS has been 7.0.6 for quite some time. My most important tweaks are MyWi, 3GUnrestrictor, ASupdatehider, and PhotoInfo so I think I'm going to wait to learn about their compatibility with 7.1.1

Tested on Parallels on Mac. Works fine.

You opt out of the piracy store by clicking the only checkbox in the program window.

"that looks to not be functional yet"
How about there's no available Mac download yet?

I just did it on my phone. Everythign seems to be working great so far.
The program is written in chinese so it's hard for us english speakers to read.
Here's a guide on iClarified on how to use it iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, 4 Using Pangu (Windows) [7.1.1]
It does require setting your phone to a certain date and time, but after the jailbreak you can set it back.

Upgraded my backup iPhone 5 that was running 7.0.6 to 7.1.1 and jailbroke without any problems. Now trying to go through my large list of tweaks to see what's broken before I upgrade my main phone
A lot of people are saying that this jailbreak isn't worth it, but with Apple not signing anything below 7.1.1 and some newer app store apps requiring 7.1.1 this will be useful until the IOS 8 jailbreak comes out

Will this damage our chances for an iOS 8.x JB?

I would have preferred they waited until 8.0

When you hover over the 'Mac OS' button it displays 'Mac版本开发中，近期将提供下载' which google translates to 'Mac version in development, will soon be available for download'. I'm awaiting patiently.
Edit: That said, I've just tried opening it with WineBottler and it opened fine. Though I'll have to update my from from 7.0.4 to test it out.

Won't work on my i5. Tried 4 times now on two different computers. Gets to the end where it says enjoy your jailbreak and screen just flashes then phone reboots, and continues to do same thing over and over.
Worked fine on my i4, gonna try my iPod touch next.

Worked on my ipad 3!!! Honestly, it was harder to update to 7.1.1 than the jailbreak!

Is anybody worried about the JB being from Chinese hackers we've never heard of? Seems fishy to me.
