ios 7

Its not like iOS 7.1.x users haven’t waited for quite a long time for a jailbreak to be released. Even though multiple developers showed off their exploits none of them actually released it for the public. A relatively new jailbreak team from China called Pangu went ahead and released an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak a couple of weeks back. Initially the tool was only available for Windows but today it the team has finally added support for Mac OS X. Mac users can now use Pangu to jailbreak their mobile devices on iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1.

This untethered jailbreak will work on any supported device that’s running the aforementioned update. Recent devices like the iPad Air and the new iPhones are also compatible with this jailbreak.

Even though its an untethered jailbreak, it is nonetheless based on a software exploit. If Apple releases a software update in the coming days it is most likely going to plug this exploit. Therefore it would be in the best interest of everyone who pined after this jailbreak to not update their software should one be rolled out in the near future.

Initially there was a caveat with this jailbreak. It would automatically install a pirated app store when the jailbreak procedure was done. Now that option has been disabled by default for English users.

The Pangu iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak tool for Mac is now available for download from the team’s website.
