iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Released and it Actually Works
Although many outlets were wary of reporting on such a sketchy jailbreak, it has proven to be legitimate after all. PanGu, a Chinese team, released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1. Journalists confirm that this jailbreak is the real deal, and it works as intended.
While the program is currently limited to Windows operating systems, there is a Mac OSX version that is currently in development. PanGu servers found themselves overloaded after the traffic bombarded their website. The speeds began to slow to a crawl, and getting into their website alone as proved to be problematic.
The PanGu jailbreak is compatible with any iPhone 4 and up, the iPad 2 or later, iPad Air, iPad mini and fith-generation iPod touch models running iOS 7.1 or later. This tool is not able to jailbreak any iOS beta devices. Gigjets recommends that you back up your device before even considering following through with a jailbreak.
This jailbreak does install a piracy store onto your device, which upsets any iOS developers. If you are against the piracy of applications, you should be wary when installing this jailbreak.
However, the jailbreak itself is spyware free and is not a malicious program. If your device is already jailbroken, there is little reason to upgrade. This jailbreak has incompatibilities with several Cydia packages, so we recommend that you strongly consider this when deciding to jailbreak.
Any people are criticizing the timing of this jailbreak. Since iOS 8 is only three or so months away from a public release, this type of effort could have gone into a larger project. If you’re interested in jailbreaking your iOS device, are you going with this 7.1 version, or awaiting a bigger and better iOS 8 break?
