Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak, News

Sorry for the late post. But just to confirm, both these firmwares have been jailbroken. Taig http://www.taig.com/en/ has taken care of the latest firmware.

As of right now, all iOS8 firmwares are jailbroken. Please make sure you don’t update beyond 8.1.2 in the near future if you want to keep your jailbreak until you hear otherwise.

Finally, if you’re still on iOS7, now is the time to get to iOS8 while the signing window for firmware is still open by apple – before they release an update and close you out.

iOS8 Pangu Release Stable now

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak

Pangu was released a week or two ago. Now after several bug fixes, it’s all pretty stable and easy to use. This is the time to get your devices onto 8.1 and jailbreak. You’ll want to do this soon so you dont miss out. When apple releases the next update, we can expect the jailbreak to be patched and the restore window for iOS8.1 to be closed.

There are a couple small issues with the jailbreak. The first is if you jailbreak then restore your backup (in that order), you will have to reinstall cydia *before* you reboot. If you don’t you’re device may not start up and you’ll have to restore. So if you recover your back up prior to having cydia on the device, you’re ok. This should also apply if you decide to reset all settings. Then you’ll need to reisntall cydia before you reboot.

Reinstalling cydia in the above example is as simple as going into cydia, searching for cydia installer, tapping modify, reinstall.

As far as tweaks, a lot of them are working pretty well now. A lot of stuff still needs to be converted, but much of the core libraries are working such as activator, flipswitch, substrate itself, winterboard (as long as you avoid summerboard mode).

iOS8 Pangu Released (sort of)

Author: BigBoss  //  Category: Jailbreak

Pangu released a new jailbreak for ios 8/8.1 today. But it has some issues so please hold off until they get worked out:

Issues so far:
1) Occasional locks on apple logo on boot
2) SMS sending of images broken
3) Cydia not installed, have to use ssh to install manually.

The jailbreak will get sorted out over the next few days and we will post an update when it’s good to go.

Also, like all major updates, tweaks will need to be rewritten to support ios8. The current developers have not had time with ios8 to do this yet so even when the jailbreak is stable, you may want to hold off for a couple weeks.

If you feel the need to update anyway, remember that it will be a one-way trip to iOS 8, and there might not be a jailbreak available for iOS 8 for a long time. You will not be able to downgrade or restore to iOS 7 after upgrading to iOS 8.
