The Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 7.1.x has been available for a while now, and it has proved to be a great hit among Cydia fans. The tool provided users the possibility to jailbreak their devices for the second time on iOS 7 after the initial success of the Evad3rs team. Even if at first the tool was a little bit unfinished and not ready to hit the public mass, the Pangu team has frequently updated the utility in order to provide a smoother, more secure experience.
In this respect, they have released the latest update the Pangu 1.2.1 featuring multiple bug fixes and AFC2. At this point, users are able to perform a successful untethered jailbreak on their devices, as well as to enjoy the benefits of these enhancements directly from Cydia.
As I mentioned above, the tool has been rolled out for a while now, and here, I want to show you exactly how you can use this amazing jailbreak possibility on your iOS device in order to perform an untethered jailbreak. Make sure you follow each step carefully, and in the end, you will have a fully jailbroken device.
However, before going with the process, it is worth mentioning the fact that the Pangu jailbreak tool is available only for Windows users at the moment. Nonetheless, I am sure that in a short while, we will see the OS X tool released as well.
Pangu jailbreak tool is compatible with the following iOS devices: iPad Air, iPad mini Retina, iPad mini, iPad 4, 3, 2, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch 5. As I mentioned above, the tool currently supports iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.1.1.
Before starting the process of jailbreaking your device using Pangu, make sure your device is running a compatible firmware. In the same time, you will have to have the latest iTunes version installed on your computer. Always backup your data using the iCloud service or even the iTunes tool.
