Jailbreak iOS 8.1 And Set Passcode Without Bootloop, Updated Pangu 1.1 Coming

iOS 8, How to Jailbreak 8.1 And Set a Passcode Without Bootloop, Updated Pangu 1.1 Coming – As of late, there have been no shortage of miracles in the world of iOS 8 jailbreaking, and today’s no exception. Recently, Pangu once again swooped in to save the day, as the team released the first Untethered iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.1, meaning that the downtime between the team’s 7.1 through 7.1.2 utility and their all-new 8.1 jailbreak was merely one month. However, the aforementioned jailbreak for iOS 8.1 hasn’t been without its fair share of complexities – for example, Cydia isn’t bundled with the utility and, until now, jailbreakers haven’t been able to set passcodes and reboot without their devices entering a dreaded infinite bootlop, forcing a restore. However, as we just alluded to in the preceding sentence, things are starting to look up for the iOS 8 jailbreak, certainly more so than last year’s equally rough iOS 7 jailbreak launch, which didn’t take place until December. Those who have jailbroken 8.1 can now officially set a passcode/longer password, as well as fully enable Touch ID post iOS 8.1 jailbreak on the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. However, that’s not all, the good news isn’t over yet – continue past the break for details on an all-in-one jailbreak 8.1 utility that will be bundled with Cydia! Continue reading… »

Install Cydia Post 8.1 Jailbreak iOS 8, How To Get Cydia Substrate

How to Install Cydia On iOS 8 Post Jailbreak 8.1 via Pangu, Can I Get Cydia? Detailed Jailbreak Installation Tutorial – Yesterday was arguably one of the most exciting days in the world of jailbreaking, as the Pangu Team’s second Untethered jailbreak utility was released to the masses: Pangu for iOS 8, which fully support, and jailbreaks, 8.1 on all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models! However, until earlier today, there was one significant catch – Cydia Substrate, which is essentially the foundation upon which jailbreak developers build tweaks – wasn’t updated to support iOS 8, let alone 8.1. While the team clarified that they ‘rushed’ their tool to ensure that the majority of jailbreakers could take full advantage of this incredible opportunity (we have no clue when Apple will release an updated firmware such as 8.1.1 to patch the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu for iOS 8) it would have been nice if Pangu had better coordinated their release with Saurik to bundle the utility with an updated version of Cydia. Having said that, with only a day between Pangu’s release and Saurik’s Cydia and subsequent Cydia Substrate, updates, there’s absolutely nothing that warrants complaint. Not only can the public jailbreak 8.1 for the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, the original iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and the 5th generation iPod touch, but we can now install Cydia with Substrate for the installation of updated tweaks – continue reading past the break for a complete tutorial on installing Cydia post 8.1 Pangu jailbreak!

Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered With Pangu iOS 8 On iPhone 6 Plus iPad And All iDevices

How to Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered with Pangu for iOS 8 on iPhone 6 Plus 5S, 5C, 4S iPad Mini 3, Air 2, 4 and iPod Touch 5th generation – Wow – it’s actually here – today, Pangu released their all-new utility to jailbreak 8.1 fully UnTethered: Pangu for iOS 8.0 through 8.1.x! However, before you get too excited, there’s one catch, which is a rather significant one. As of now, the Pangu jailbreak for 8.1 doesn’t install Cydia, as Saurik (the creator of the aforementioned third-party graphical tweak distribution and acquisition interface) has yet to update Cydia Substrate for iOS 8. The way things currently stand, Pangu for iOS 8 is mostly intended for jailbreak developers to get a jump on creating iOS 8-compatible tweaks, as the utility enables full root access, and enables SSH, which is  jailbreaking on a fundamental and rudimentary level. However, seeing as there’s no way to determine when the loopholes exploited by Pangu’s new utility will be patched by an updated 8.1.x firmware, those interested in jailbreaking should take advantage of the current opportunity to do so,  as you’ll be able to install Cydia once Saurik successfully updates Cydia Substrate for iOS 8 through 8.1.x! For more on the exciting new Pangu jailbreak 8.1 utility, continue past the break. Continue reading… »

Apple Releases iOS 8.1, Can I Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered? A Jailbreaker’s Guide To Updating

Apple Releases 8.1, Can I Jailbreak iOS 8.1 Untethered? Upcoming Jailbreak to likely Support, and Jailbreak, 8.1 – Today, after only two developer beta releases, Apple issued iOS 8.1 (the first substantial 8.x update that introduces a number of enhancements) to the general public. Like its iOS 8.0.x predecessors, namely last month’s 8.0.2 update, 8.1 patches the Untethered Pangu jailbreak – although it sounds rather bleak, 8.1 provides a bright beacon of hope for the first iOS 8 jailbreak. Beyond the option to update to iOS 8.1 via iOS’ built-in OTA (an acronym for over-the-air) update feature, 8.1 can be downloaded and installed directly through iTunes, which is the preferred method; we’ll elaborate on that shortly – however, current iOS 7 through 7.1.2 jailbreak users should unquestionably avoid the latest firmware. In the first truly significant revision since iOS 8’s initial release, Apple has introduced a number of welcomed features, improvements and bug fixes in the company’s latest 8.1 release, which supports the latest iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, especially the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, both of which are scheduled for release this week. As with every iOS 8 release, the vulnerabilities the Pangu team managed to exploit to achieve an Untethered jailbreak remain patched in 8.1, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak iOS 8.1 when employing the current Pangu tool. That being said, today’s news isn’t all bad, far from it. For more on the latest iOS 8.1 firmware and the next jailbreak, continue reading past the customary break! Continue reading… »

iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3, And Possibly iPod Touch 6, Unveiling: Live Video Coverage

iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 Unveiling: Live Video coverage via Evasi0n Jailbreak – Recently, beyond talk of a new utility to jailbreak 8.1 and iOS 8.0.2, be it either evasi0n or Pangu, the forthcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 have arguably been the most exciting topics amongst Apple enthusiasts. As we highlighted yesterday on Evasi0n Jailbreak, the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will further the current stealth development of the next UnTethered jailbreak for iOS 8, mostly because said iPads (and iOS 8.1) are the final pieces to the puzzle. Tomorrow, after what will be weeks and months of anticipation, the company’s annual October iPad unveiling event will commence with an opening keynote presentation at 10:00 AM Pacific Time (1:00 PM Eastern). During the event, Apple will unveil not only the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, but if recent rumors pan out, possibly a Retina-equipped iMac, the iPod touch 6, a new Apple TV and/or a refreshed Mac Mini. As a result of tomorrow’s conference, jailbreakers who own iPhone, iPad or iPod touch models successfully jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2, or any iteration of iOS 7 for that matter, should avoid any potential iOS 8 update, as it will unquestionably result in the loss of said devices’ current jailbroken state. Nevertheless, like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch last month, this remains an exhilarating period for Apple fans – we’ll feature a complete live video feed on this post, as well as provide a link to detailed written updates.

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak On 7.1.2

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Pangu or Evasi0n Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak on 7.1.2 – Today, like with each day following iOS 8’s initial release, we find ourselves closer to the mobile liberation that will inevitably come in the form of an iOS 8.0.2 UnTethered jailbreak. As detailed in preceding articles, not only are the evad3rs (the ingenious team of hackers behind the creation of the first iOS 6 and iOS 8 UnTethered jailbreak utilities, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) working diligently to discover new vulnerabilities, but the newest jailbreakers on the scene are also racing for a release: Pangu. Furthermore, with Pangu financed by a third-party Chinese company with monetary interests in jailbreaking, Pangu may very well be the first to issue an iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.0.2 and 8.1. However, that’s not exactly the focal point of today’s article – regardless of what anyone may say, the past is still very much a part of the present. Each day following Apple’s release of iOS 8, which in turn patched Pangu, we received a number of questions related to the tool’s functionality; not so much whether Pangu can jailbreak 8.0.2, but whether it still supports 7.1.2 ensuing the aforementioned patch.

iOS 8.1 Beta 2 Released, Evasi0n And/Or Pangu iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak To Support 8.1

Apple Releases iOS 8.1 Beta 2, Evasi0n and/or Pangu 8.0.2 Jailbreak to Support, and Jailbreak, 8.1 – Earlier today, following Apple’s recent release of both iOS 8.1 beta 1 and iOS 8.0.2, the company has seeded the second beta iteration of 8.1 to those enrolled through Apple’s official iOS Developer program. The latest beta firmware, which is available to developers for immediate download via the company’s Developer Center, boasts a revised build number of 12B407. Interestingly, like its predecessor, 8.1 beta 2 offers less improvements over 8.0.2, further solidifying our initial analysis that there will likely be a number of subsequent beta versions prior to the final version intended for public release. In fact, 8.1 beta 2’s changelog carries little weight over that of its predecessor, suggesting the majority of said changes are likely bug fixes. Furthermore, the aforementioned point also seems to indicate that there likely aren’t any additional security fixes present in 8.1 beta 2, which in turn means that the forthcoming update likely won’t patch any of the iOS 8 vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered thus far and plan to implement into their imminent UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak, and likely 8.1, utilities. By way of explanation, any jailbreak tool released for iOS 8 will likely jailbreak 8.1 completely UnTethered, in addition to functioning on, supporting and jailbreaking, iOS 8.0.2. For more on the all-new 8.1 beta 2 firmware, continue reading. Continue reading… »

Jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 And iPhone 6 Plus Updating – Update For An iOS 8 Jailbreak?

iOS 8 Jailbreak 8.0.2 and iPhone 6 Plus Updating – Should I Update for an iOS 8 Jailbreak? – Recently, ensuing the release of both iOS 8.0.2 and 8.1 beta 1 (to those enrolled in Apple’s official Developer Program), we’ve received a plethora of questions pertaining to the former of the two latest releases. Interestingly though, said questions aren’t regarding whether there’s a jailbreak iOS 8.0.2 utility currently available, but instead something else related to jailbreaking.  Prior to delving into the previously alluded to question, it’s important to understand the background of both the latest 8.0.2 public release and the current Untethered jailbreak utility. The latter of the two aforementioned items was regrettably patched by Apple when the company issued iOS 8 to the public, meaning the Pangu UnTethered 7.1.2 utility cannot jailbreak 8.0.2 on any device, including the new iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 models – the tool will only ever function on 7.1 through 7.1.2, until the Pangu Team releases an updated iteration of Pangu. As for iOS 8.0.2, continue reading past the break for more on the firmware and the mostly commonly asked question we’ve received as of late pertaining to both 8.0.2 and the next jailbreak!

Apple Releases iOS 8.1 Beta 1, Upcoming iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak To Likely Support 8.1

Apple Releases 8.1 Beta 1, Upcoming iOS 8.0.2 Jailbreak to likely Support and Jailbreak 8.1 – Today, ensuing Apple’s recent release of iOS 8.0.2 on Thursday, the company has seeded the first beta iteration of iOS 8.1 to those enrolled in the official iOS Developer program. The update, which is available for immediate download via the Apple’s Developer Center, features a revised build number of 12B401. Surprisingly, the 8.1 beta 1 update doesn’t introduce many improvements and offers virtually no additional features over 8.0.2, suggesting that there will likely be numerous betas prior to the firmware’s inevitable release. Furthermore, the aforementioned fact also indicates that there are likely no real security fixes, which in turn means that iOS 8.1 doesn’t patch any of the vulnerabilities the evad3rs and/or Pangu have discovered and are planning on implementing into their forthcoming UnTethered iOS 8 through 8.0.2 jailbreak utility. In other words, the to0l will likely jailbreak 8.1 fully Untethered, in addition to functioning on, and supporting, iOS 8.0, the short-lived 8.0.1 update and 8.0.2. For more on the latest 8.1 beta 1 firmware, continue reading past the break! Continue reading… »

Apple Releases 8.0.2, Is It Possible To Jailbreak 8.0.2 And Should I Update?

Apple Releases 8.0.2, Is it Possible to Jailbreak 8.0.2 and Should I Update? – Today, ensuing the short-lived iOS 8.0.1 update, which was recalled shortly following its release, Apple issued 8.0.2 to the general public. Like its predecessor, 8.0.2 effectively patches the Pangu UnTethered Jailbreak – that’s not necessarily a bad thing and we’ll elaborate on the topic shortly. In addition to being available for download immediately via both iOS’ built-in OTA (short for over-the-air) ability, 8.0.2 can be downloaded through iTunes – however, current jailbreak users should certainly avoid the update. In what appears to be a hotfix of sorts, iOS 8.0.2 provides a remedy to the peculiar connectivity and Touch ID issues brought on by iOS 8.0.1. In addition to correcting the blatant usability issues in yesterday’s release, as with 8.0, the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak remain patched in 8.0.2, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak 8.0.2 UnTethered using the current utility. For more on 8.0.2, as well as the firmware’s jailbreak status, continue reading! Continue reading… »
