The jailbreak community isn’t as active as it used to be back in the day nevertheless Pangu made some ripples last week with its release of an iOS 8.1 jailbreak. This Chinese team released the first jailbreak for iOS 8.1 even though it was meant for developers mostly and didn’t even include Cydia, which is considered as an alternate App Store for jailbroken devices. Today the Pangu team has said that they may release an updated version of their iOS 8.1 jailbreak tomorrow with Cydia baked in.


The Pangu team announced that they have received the Cydia package from Saurik and that they will now test it and subsequently integrate it. If all goes well and there are no hiccups then an updated version of the Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 8.1 will be released tomorrow.

There’s one tiny issue though. The Pangu tool is only available for Windows right now and the updated version will not include support for Mac. The team has not said as yet if and when they will release an updated version which brings this tool over to the Mac as well.

Moreover the tool is in Chinese language but even if you can’t read the language, it would be pretty easy to get the deed done once you have the tool up and running.
