'Pangu' Jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x Updated with Support for OS X and English

by

The Pangu development team today updated its jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x bringing support for the English language and OS X systems, as well as a fix for a bug that caused boot loops on iOS devices.

pangu_jailbreak_ios71x
The jailbreak was originally released last week and marked the first time that users were able to deploy an untethered jailbreak on any device running iOS 7.1.1 and below. However, the release was only available for Windows systems and contained an option to install "25PP", which is a third party app store for Chinese users. Pangu's newest release now disables installation of 25PP for English users by default.

Pangu's jailbreak tool follows an updated version of the popular Evasi0n jailbreak that was released last year for iOS 7.0 to iOS 7.0.4. However, Evasi0n was also the subject of controversy after Cydia administrator Jay Freeman revealed that evasi0n did not include an official version of Cydia and installed a third party app store called Taig for Chinese users. In response to Freeman's statement, the evad3rs development team announced the removal of the Taig app store from the jailbreak and apologized for the issues caused by its inclusion.

The updated Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x can be downloaded directly from the project's official website.

Is there aomething to complain and waste time typing about now?


I don't know, is there?

You came to this thread, about something that apparently has no interest to you, to complain about this story's existence, stating that you have no idea why jailbreaking happens, then immediately negating your own opinion by saying you have never done it.

I responded to your implied question.

If I'm at a bar, and I overhear a conversation about motorcycles, I don't walk over and go "I don't know why anyone would ride a motorcycle, it seems unsafe! But I've never ridden one." then complain when they actually reply. If you don't want a reply, then don't post. If you don't want to read about jailbreaking, then skip the stories on it.

Like it or not, to many iOS device users, a new jailbreak is news, thus it is worthy to report on on a website dedicated to news about Apple devices.

To me, i don't find jailbreaking is proper news to be on here. I think that because jailbreaking a phone doesn't seem right to me. That is just my opinion and maybe if I tried jailbreaking, it might justify my answer. But I don't think this should be on MacRumors

I'll assume you meant "right", not "tight".

What about it isn't right? Did you not purchase your device? Did you not pay for it? Why exactly is it "not right" for someone to have full access to something that they own?

The equivalent is that you buy a house, and the seller says "Look, I know you bought this house. But these two rooms are off limits. Im locking them up tight."

Does that sound right to you? Because that's essentially what you're arguing is "right".

After last jailbreak causing my iPhone 5 run like crap, I'm done with jailbreak: the benefit doesn't worth the risk.

Don't knock the jb.. blame the junk that you installed. :rolleyes:

Considering you've never jailbroken your phone, you therefore realistically aren't aware of the value a jailbroken phone provides.

I feel jail break news to be of the utmost relevance on a website such as this. If say Apple.com had info on jail breaking, then I'd be a bit suspicious.
