After a somewhat surprise release and a lot of anticipation, an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 has finally been made public under the name of PanGu. Developed by what appears to be a Chinese group of people, PanGu seems to be using i0n1c’s exploits which he failed to make public before anyone else made use of them. While a iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak may sound great, users do need to take caution before proceeding. In a similar issue, the first ever release of Evasion7 came bundled with Chinese software/spyware called “Taig” which led to a lot of frustration from the jailbreak community. This time around, some software by the name of “PP Helper” has been packaged with PanGu but can be removed if wanted. Everything else aside, the jailbreak has been confirmed to be clean and comes with Cydia. As of right now Cydia does not “officially” support iOS 7.1.1, however, it still works without many adverse problems.
Moving forward, the same goes for jailbreak tweaks from what we have heard. Most if not all tweaks should work without any problems on iOS 7.1.1, but some may have a few bugs or glitches that will need to be worked out. If you’re on the fence about jailbreaking, time is running out quickly. Rumors have hinted that iOS 7.1.2 may land sometime here soon and who knows if that will patch any exploits used by PanGu and i0n1c. So what we recommend doing is to download the .ispw for iOS 7.1.1 just in case and see what happens from there. In the coming days we’ll have more information on PanGu and various guides on how to jailbreak your device if you need help or are running into any trouble.
