Jailbreak iOS 8 And iOS 8.1 With Pangu On iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, iPad, More [Updated]
UPDATE: Team Pangu has released a tool to jailbreak iOS 8 to iOS 8.1 untethered on iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, all iPads, and iPod touch 5. You can read more about it all, along with jailbreaking instructions, download link and more for new jailbreak in our dedicated articles given below.
If you are already jailbroken using Pangu8, make sure you update the latest untether package to get all the bug fixes. A guide on how to update to latest untether package for already jailbroken devices can be found here.
Here’s a brief timeline of how the jailbreak came into being.
When Apple released iOS 8 in September, many were looking to jailbreak their iPhones, iPads and iPod touches on the latest firmware.
With iOS 7, we were somewhat spoilt, with Evad3rs covering the earlier builds before Chinese team Pangu came through to jailbreak iOS 7.1 and up. But with iOS 8, we were back to square one.
Apple followed the initial iOS 8.0 release with 8.0.1, 8.0.2, and finally iOS 8.1 in October with support for Apple Pay and more. iOS 8.1 download links can be found here.
iPad (2, 3, 4, Air, Air 2, mini 1, mini 2, mini 3)
iPod touch 5
We have detailed tutorials on how to jailbreak your iOS device on iOS 8.x using Pangu. All the tutorial links are given at the top of this post. While currently there is no Mac OS X version available as yet, we have a workaround for running Pangu on OS X using a virtual machine. A tutorial for that too is linked above.
As our long-time readers will know by now, we’re big fans of the iOS jailbreak scene and everything that it does, so stay tuned to our coverage for updates and information as it happens right here!
