Timeline of how the jailbreak happened:

In March, Apple released iOS 7.1 in which Evasi0n7 untethered jailbreaking tool, as expected, was patched by the Cupertino-based company.

Later in the same month, Winocm posted a video on YouTube demonstrating iOS 7.1 untethered boot on an A4-based iPhone 4. No time frame was given for its release. This was immediately followed by iH8sn0w who claimed on Twitter that his iPhone 4s is jailbroken on iOS 7.1. But details, as usual, were scarce, and it was unknown on when the actual jailbreak will be made available to the public.

iOS 7.1.1 was released in April. In May, i0n1c, Winocm and Yeongjin all managed to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 independently. i0n1c’s one was called Cyberelevat0r. There was still no word on public ETA from any of them.

In June, out of no where, a team of Chinese developers released Pangu iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak which worked on all devices.

i0n1c claimed that the exploits used in Pangu jailbreak were actually stolen from him from folks who took one of his training classes early in the year.

On June 30th, Apple released a bug fix iOS 7.1.2 update which didn’t patched the exploits used in Pangu jailbreak. The developers behind Pangu updated the software for both Windows and Mac with full support for iOS 7.1.2 untethered jailbreak on all the iOS devices.

Update x3: With both iOS 8 (you can download iOS 8 from here) and iOS 8.0.2 (you can download iOS 8.0.2 from here) now out, Apple has now closed firmware signing window for iOS 7.1.2, bringing an end to iOS 7 downgrades. Pangu Team though is said to be working on an iOS 8 jailbreak, we’ll update the post when we have more info on it.
