iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone/iPad Released

Believe it or not, but it looks like that iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak is here. A group of Chinese hackers calling themselves “Pangu” have just released what they’re claiming is an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, and this time it looks like we might have a bit of evidence that it could be legitimate. (Update: reports are streaming in that the jailbreak does indeed successfully install Cydia on iOS 7.1.X devices.)

The jailbreak tool is called "Pangu" and it is currently only work on Windows version, while a Mac version is in development. It would appear that the PanGu servers are currently being overloaded with users trying to download the jailbreak tool, so the download speed on the file has slowed to a crawl. We recommend that users stay away from the jailbreak until it is given the green light by trusted individuals in the community.
The jailbreak is compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPad 2 or later, iPad Air, iPad mini and the fifth-generation iPod touch running iOS 7.1 or later. Just to state the obvious, the tool cannot be used to jailbreak the iOS 8 betas. If you decide to follow through with the jailbreak right away, against our advice, it is highly recommended that you at least back up your device.

iOS developer iH8sn0w has provided some interesting commentary on this new jailbreak, confirming that the jailbreak worked on his iPad 4 and that it is free of spyware and malicious trails. We are hearing that the jailbreak does install a piracy store, however, much to the chagrin of talented developers within the community. We are strongly against piracy of apps, and we hope you are too.
Users are reporting that Cydia is indeed working perfectly fine. That said, as happened with the TAIG software back when evasi0n was released, there seems to be a bunch of Chinese software also being loaded.


Again, while this jailbreak appears to be legitimate, we strongly recommend that you exercise caution in choosing to use the tool. There will be several incompatibilities with Cydia packages anyways, so there is little reason to upgrade if you are already jailbroken. If you’re running stock iOS 7.1.1, at least give it a few hours until the dust settles and we have a clearer picture of the jailbreak.

UPDATE: Also, as seen by comments in a Reddit thread, countless people are reporting that their iOS 7.1.X device do indeed have Cydia installed:
“I appear to have Cydia, but also some super sketchy Chinese app. Mixed feelings.”
“me done …..ios 7.1.1. on my iphone 5 … thanks a tun for Panguuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu”
“Just a heads up to those who went through with the install: In Cydia, you can easily remove the PP Chinese app that was installed with the jailbreak. No worries there! In other news, I have biteSMS installed and running smoothly on my 5S which was never jailbroken (came with 7.1). Seems to be legit. As far as spyware/keyloggers/etc., I can’t confirm if it’s safe.”
“This does work, it basically asks you to set the date to January 2nd, and then touch the weird app it installs, but it does install cydia!”
