Whoa. This is just in. Team Pangu has dropped an iOS 8 – 8.1 jailbreak that works on even the latest iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, along with all previous devices. The jailbreak though is currently limited to SSH only, and it doesn’t come with Cydia installed.

Available for Windows only for now, here are the list of devices and iOS firmware version supported by the new jailbreak.

The jailbreak is mainly a developer focused release to help them update all their tweaks and apps for iOS 8. According to Team Pangu, Cydia will be added in a future update to the jailbreak:

@TeamPangu: Cydia + other plugins can’t be used until they are updated to work with iOS8. When they’re updated we integrate them in Pangu Jailbreak 1.0

Update x1: Saurik is aware of this release and is now working on Cydia and Substrate compatibility for iOS 8. From Reddit:

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.)
