Cydia creator Saurik says that the new jailbreak is “stable enough” for use on iOS devices.
Chinese team Pangu has been providing all the jailbreak related news these days. The usual teams are out of the picture and they haven’t come up with a solution to jailbreak Apple’s latest iOS iteration. Pangu was the first to release a tool that allowed users to jailbreak iOS 8.0.x and iOS 8.1 devices untethered. Initially the only caveat is that Cydia wasn’t included in the tool but now it has been integrated and the creator of Cydia himself says that this jailbreak is “stable enough” for use.
Saurik was working with the Pangu team in order to integrate Cydia in the jailbreak. Cydia is widely regarded as the alternative App Store for jailbroken iOS devices. It provides access to apps and customization options that are otherwise not allowed by Apple on iOS devices.
A couple of caveats still remain with Pangu though. For starters, the tool is only available for Windows PC. Mac users will have to wait for a considerable amount of time before Pangu is made available for their OS. Secondly the tool is in Chinese, but you don’t speak the language, don’t worry as its pretty easy to figure out where you have to click in order to jailbreak your iOS 8.0 or iOS 8.1 device.
Pangu provides an untethered jailbreak for all devices compatible with the aforementioned software, that includes the new devices as well, such as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus as well as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
