The Team Pangu has finally rolled out an iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 jailbreak that works on even the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, alongside with all previous devices, the Untethered Jailbreak dropped is currently limited to SHH only, and not comes with Cydia installed.
Available for Windows for now, Team Pangu are those behind the untethered iOS 7.1.2 jailbreak and today released Pangu8 jailbreak for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1.
Pangu8 will work with all the iOS 8 – 8.1 Compatible devices:
- iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s
- iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3 and iPad 2
- Retina iPad mini, 1st gen iPad mini
- 5th generation iPod touch
iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 Jailbreak Supported firmware:
- iOS 8.0
From the official pangu.io site (translated):
The jailbreak is mainly a developer focused released in order to help them update all their tweaks and jailbreak apps for iOS 8. According to Team Pangu, Cydia will be added in the future update to the Pangu8 untethered 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
About Cydia update: 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.)
Once its confirmed that the jailbreak is safe and Cydia and Mobile Substrate are working we will posted detailed instructions on how to jailbreak your device.
