How to Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 Using Pangu Tool

Hackers from China known as Pangu have presented iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak Pangu for iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1 firmware. According to users who have already risked to install this exploit, the new Pangu jailbreak 7.1.1 works and installs Cydia on the Home screen.

Of course, this is not Evasi0n or p0sixspwn most people are used to by now. The new Chinese program is in Chinese language, but it does its job no matter what.

The exploit now supports only Windows computers. Mac users are out of luck for now, bu this might change in the future. You can visit the official hackers’ site at http://pangu.io/ to download the program and learn more about this tool.

As the site notes, the new jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 supports these models: iPhone touch 5G, iPhones 4, 4S, 5S, 5c and 5, and iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina screen. The tool should also support iPad 2, 3, and 4.

The jailbreak is present as the .exe file for your PC. Its size is over 70 MB. Chinese developers don’t mention what software they used to create it. As iH8sn0w notes, the program doesn’t seem to have any malicious trails.

Members on Reddit report they have no problems with this jailbreak and are already having Cydia on the iOS 7.1.1 iPhone 5S, iPhone 5 and other models.
