Apple rolled out iOS 8.1.1 beta a couple of days back, and along with the usual assortment of bug fixes and minor tweaks, the main alteration, at least as far as the jailbreak community is concerned, is the fact that it plugs exploits that have permitted Pangu8 to work its magic.

The Pangu team has just announced via Twitter that users who’ve jailbroken using Pangu8 1.0 can go ahead and install Cydia directly from the Pangu app itself. Given that Pangu 1.1 is set to arrive shortly – a release that will inject Cydia as part of the jailbreaking process – those who’ve waited so long for a simpler set of steps finally have their wish, and if you don’t want to wait for the next major installment of Pangu, you can instead pluck Cydia 1.1.14 from the current version.
