How to install Cydia on iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 using Pangu app

The Pangu team released their iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 jailbreak last week, but did so in a hurry, which meant that Cydia wasn’t available right away. While saurik made Cydia available quickly, it had to be manually installed.

The good news is that the Pangu team have now included Cydia in the Pangu iOS app, which can be installed with a few taps, rather than the earlier process which involved SSHing into your device, and running a couple of terminal commands. So here’s how you install Cydia using the Pangu iOS app:

  • Ensure that your iOS device is jailbroken.
