How to jailbrk iOS 8 — iOS 8.1 with Pangu

To everyone’s surprise, and as we reported first, the Pangu jailbrk for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 was relsed rlier today courtesy of a mysterious tm of Chinese jailbrk developers.

Some important points before you proceed:

[*]This tutorial is for users. Pangu tm hasn’t relsed a Mac version yet.
Plse note Pangu is an untethered jailbrk for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1
Pangu supports following iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices:
iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S
iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2
iPad mini, Retina iPad mini
iPod touch 5G
Plse disable the pass as the jailbrk may fail, if the pass is enabled (Settings -> eral -> Pass Lock On -> Turn Pass Off).
Take a backup of your device using iTunes before proceeding.
Plse ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
Plse note that jailbrking your iOS device may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.

Step 1: Download the latest version of Pangu jailbrk from this link

Download Pangu

Step 2: Connect your device to your computer, and use iCloud or iTunes to back up any and all personal information that you need to keep safe. The jailbrk has been reported to be working in most cases, but on the off chance something goes wrong, it’s a good id to have an escape plan.

Step 3: The Pangu tm says that if you’ve done an OTA update, the jailbrk might not work. So plse do a fresh install of iOS 8.1. Download links and instructions can be found here.
Step 4: Disable Pass from Settings > Touch ID & Pass and turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone.

Step 5: Plse launch the appliion as an Administrator. Right Click on the Pangu exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

Step 6: You should be presented with a screen like the one seen below. The appliion is in Chinese, and if you don’t have the required Chinese fonts on your laptop, you might see question marks instd of Chinese text.

Step 7: Uncheck the checkbox on the left that says “PP” and then click on the blue Jailbrk button.

Step 8: You’ll see the progress of the jailbrk, and the current stage in the 6 step jailbrk process. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Step 9: You’ll see that your device tells you there’s a restore in progress. Wait for your device to reboot several times. The entire process should take around 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 10: After the jailbrk process completes, you’ll see a Pangu app on your device. This confirms that your device is jail. While there’s no Cydia (Update: Cydia for iOS 8 is available, check link at bottom for details), you can install OpenSSH, and a few other tools to play around with the jail iOS device’s file system. Hopefully, Cydia will be available through this app as well.
