Ios 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak: How-to Securely Use The Pangu Tool + Our Impressions - International Digital Times

Surprise iOS 7.1 jailbreak for most iPhones and iPads uses year-old flaw | Ars Technica

Follow Us We've installed the PanGu jailbreak on our own device and can say things are going swimmingly so far. We haven't noticed any dealbreaking hangups as of yet since we made sure to uncheck the box (more on that below). While many Cydia tweaks have yet to be optimized for iOS 7.1.1, the majority of our favorite tweaks still work. Only occasionally does a Cydia app not install at all (bring on that support AltKeyboard 2 !) All in all we don't regret (so far) utilizing the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak. If you're content with your iOS below 7.1 jailbreak then you don't really have a reason to upgrade. Though if you're dying to have Apple's latest software plus a jailbreak, PanGu is the way to go. Installing the iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Via PanGu Before starting: You must have iTunes installed to start this jailbreak process with PanGu. At the moment the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak PanGu tool is Windows only with a Mac version coming soon. And before doing anything always back up back up back upyour device's data (in iTunes, in iCloud, or both).

iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak free to all who dare to try it - CNET

But is it safe? presented by An untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak courtesy of Chinese developers Screenshot by Lance Whitney/CNET Those of you who want to apply an untethered jailbreak to your iOS 7.1.1 device now have a new source. Cooked up by Chinese developers and packaged as a file called Pangu, the new jailbreak will reportedly hack its way into any device sporting iOS 7.1.1 , including the latest iPhone 5S and iPad Air , tech site Redmond Pie said on Tuesday. The installation file currently supports only Windows but an OS X version is supposed to be on the way. iOS 7.1.1 launched in April as just a minor update to the mobile operating system. But hackers continually attempt to outdo Apple by striving to jailbreak the latest version of iOS, a process that lets users customize their iOS devices and run unsupported apps. However, users take a risk when they jailbreak their devices as the practice is not sanctioned by Apple and could pose security risks. A jailbreak from Chinese developers raises a particular red flag given the current cyberspying frenzy between the US and China.

The iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak release by PanGu successfully unlocks your iPhone and iPad running the latest software. Find out how to properly use the tool! (Photo: Creative Commons) by Dan Goodin - Jun 25, 2014 4:24 pm UTC PanGu Developers in China have published what appears to be a reliable and malware-free jailbreak for most iPhones and iPads running the latest version of Apple's iOS. The release underscores how hard it is to keep such jailbreak exploits out of the public domain, since the code vulnerability that makes it possible appears to come from a highly secretive training class on iOS exploit development. Jailbreaks allow iOS users to bypass Apple's iron-clad technical restrictions and install unauthorized third-party software that is not included in the App Store. The technique appeals to many users, but it also comes with significant risks. One is that the process could temporarily or possibly damagethe device. Another is that jailbreak developers may bundle keyloggers or other types of malware inside the software that performs the operation, leaving users with a device that steals passwords, tracks geographic whereabouts, or performs other nefarious deeds. Neither of those risks appears to accompany the release this week of the PanGu jailbreak , but Ars hasn't verified its safety, security, or reliability. Readers who choose to run the program do so at their own risk. The jailbreak, according to security researchers at Lacoon Mobile Security , uses a digital certificate Apple provides to enterprise customers to bypass restrictions on unauthorized apps. Apple makes them available so that customers can establish their own in-house source of apps instead of relying on the App Store.
