If you follow jailbreak news then you might know about Pangu. This jailbreak tool is developed by a Chinese team of the same name. It is the only solution available to the public right now for jailbreaking iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 on all supported devices, which includes the new iPhones and new iPads. Initially the tool was only available for Windows but today the team has finally released the Pangu iOS 8 untethered jailbreak tool for Mac.

We had been expecting this release for quite some time now. The team itself had said that it was working on the Mac OS X version of Pangu iOS 8 untethered jailbreak tool. It also brings Cydia 1.1.16 which fixed boot loop issues, this new version of Cydia was first bundled with version 1.2.1 of this tool for Windows.

The Pangu tool offers a one-click jailbreak solution so jailbreaking a device with it is pretty simple. Just hook up the device to the computer and fire up Pangu. Click on Start Jailbreak and Pangu will do the rest automatically. The device will restart once the deed is done, after which it will have Cydia, otherwise referred to as the jailbreak “App Store.”

Through Cydia you can then download apps, tweaks and other customization items which Apple doesn’t natively allow on its iOS devices. Keep in mind though that jailbreaking an iOS device will void its warranty but a clean iOS install will remove any traces of a jailbreak, so if you want to take your device in to Apple for a service, better get rid of the jailbreak first.
