How to Jailbreak iOS 8.1 – iOS 8 using Pangu


To everyone’s surprise, and as we reported first, the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 was released earlier today courtesy of a mysterious team of Chinese jailbreak developers.

Some important points before you proceed:

  • This tutorial is for Windows users. Pangu team hasn’t released a Mac version yet.
  • Please note Pangu is an untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1
  • You won’t be able to install Cydia, as it is incompatible with iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 (Update: Cydia for iOS 8 is released, installation link at the bottom)
  • Pangu supports following iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices:
    • iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S
    • iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2
    • iPad mini, Retina iPad mini
    • iPod touch 5G
  • Please disable the passcode as the jailbreak may fail, if the passcode is enabled (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock On -> Turn Passcode Off).
  • Take a backup of your device using iTunes before proceeding.
  • Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
  • Please note that jailbreaking your iOS device may void your warranty and hence proceed with caution and at your own risk.

Step 1: Download the latest version of Pangu jailbreak from this link

Step 2: Connect your device to your computer, and use iCloud or iTunes to back up any and all personal information that you need to keep safe. The jailbreak has been reported to be working in most cases, but on the off chance something goes wrong, it’s a good idea to have an escape plan.

Step 3: The Pangu team says that if you’ve done an OTA update, the jailbreak might not work. So please do a fresh install of iOS 8.1. Download links and instructions can be found here.

Step 4: Disable Passcode from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode and turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone.

Step 5: Please launch the application as an Administrator. Right Click on the Pangu exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

Step 6: You should be presented with a screen like the one seen below. The application is in Chinese, and if you don’t have the required Chinese fonts on your laptop, you might see question marks instead of Chinese text.

Screenshot 2014-10-22 20.16.57

Step 7: Uncheck the checkbox on the left that says “PP” and then click on the blue Jailbreak button.

Step 8: You’ll see the progress of the jailbreak, and the current stage in the 6 step jailbreak process. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Screenshot 2014-10-22 20.18.09

Step 9:  You’ll see that your device tells you there’s a restore in progress. Wait for your device to reboot several times. The entire process should take around 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 10: After the jailbreak process completes, you’ll see a Pangu app on your device. This confirms that your device is jailbroken. While there’s no Cydia (Update: Cydia for iOS 8 is available, check link at bottom for details), you can install OpenSSH, and a few other tools to play around with the jailbroken iOS device’s file system. Hopefully, Cydia will be available through this app as well.

Here’s a video tutorial:

After the jailbreaking process is complete, do not forget to checkout our article on tips to keep your jailbroken device secure. You won’t be able to install Cydia or any tweaks yet as saurik has yet to update the package manager for iOS 8.

Update: Cydia should be available from Pangu soon, but if you can’t wait until then, here’s our guide on how to install Cydia:

  • fonsy

    will this jailbreak activate and bypass icloud? because I cant even get to my settings to turn off find my iphone or anything because im stuck at activation. will it still work please reply

    • BenjaminGecaj192

      no u cant! jailbreaking have nothing to do with the activating of the iPhone, u should activate it in another way than u can jailbreak ur iPhone

  • fonsy

    also I keep getting an error that said iTunes in the middle of the unreadablestuff so im guessing it has something to do with iTunes is this so?

    • im2slick4u

      You need to have the latest version of iTunes installed on your PC.

      • fonsy

        what if my iphone 5s is activation locked? will this error still pop up ? because on my ipod without anytypes of locks it was able to be jailbroken but when I plug the iphone up theres a problem.

    will this bypass icloud activation?

  • Jacob Twardosky

    A bit more than half way through, the Pangu just completely fails, and I can’t restart my iPod. My iPod is hopeless now…

  • Olgreg

    I turned of pass code and find my iPhone. My phone restarts once and then on pangu it seems to get stuck on ?Touch ID? anyone else have this issue or know whats causing it. I’m on iPhone 5 iOS 8.1

    • BenjaminGecaj192

      did u a fresh restore with iTunes or an OTA update ?

      if u did an OTA update u should do a fresh iTunes Restore to jailbreak ur iPhone cause the OTA doesnt work 🙂

  • David

    Help me I get this!!

  • David

    ….

  • am

    im doing a constant loop on 2/6. pls help.

    • JTtheCanadian

      Restore your device completely, do not reinstall anything, disable touch id and your password, activate airplane mode, set the screen so it never lock automatically and do not enable find my iphone. Got the same issue and it only worked with all of these extra steps.

  • Tatsh

    I was having the 2/6 problem as well and since the font will not render correctly I could tell what the error was. On my iPad Air, I successfully completed it with a clean install of iOS 8 (no restored backup or anything).

    Just to note, I did it in VirtualBox (Windows 7 + iTunes latest). Be careful with this method. Ensure that every time the device reboots you re-connect the device in VirtualBox as soon as it appears again.

  • am

    how do you get back your pictures and bookmarks after a fresh install?

  • Teenspecialex

    I unchecked the box but the the blue button doesn’t light up

    • Skeezy

      Me too. The blue box light up the first time I opened the Pangu app, but now it doesn’t light up at all. Regardless of the box being checked or not.

    • Skeezy

      I got my button to light up because I had to download the latest version of iTunes. Try that, and see if that works. Once I did that, everything else works perfectly. I have Cydia open on my 6+ right now.

  • Pedro Rolla

    the installation stops at a moment and shows an error message, but i cant read it because is in symbols. i’m jailbreaking an iPad Air wifi 8.1

    I’m loving my iPad 4 and iPhone 6 Plus jailbreak without unchecking Step 7.

    • Zach

      What does it do if you don’t uncheck it?

      • Pirateapple

        Its installs the Chinese app store for free apps Wink Wink

  • Pirateapple

    Please turn off find my iPhone and passcode before starting the jailbreak and don’t forget to right click Pangu and open as Admin

  • Pete LP

    • anonymously

      PanGu said this is because the jailbreak program will write important files into the system directory and cause alarm, it will not affect the result. When the Cydia be compatible, click on the Cydia will launch the directory moving process.

  • Roshan

    Out if range: I couldn’t restore my IPhone 4S. I am getting error 3004 and after using Tiny Umbrella its error 11. Please help me. I couldn’t do any ways. 🙁

    I’ve successfully followed the instructions jailbreaking and i already have the Pangu icon but when I’m trying to access the system using iFunbox can’t see the the root files. Help!

    • anonymously

      that is because iFunbox still thinks your device is not jailbroken so you can only ssh for now

  • Pprika

    Update Cydia Substrate (:

  • i have succesfully installed winterboard,circly theme 🙂

  • sadiq

    to all folks date need also to be changed for Jailbreak to work…

    • laurnzo

      That’s incorrect. I didn’t have to change date on my iPhone 6 Plus and iPad 4 LTE

  • jordantsmart

    every time i install something from cydia the icon doesn’t show up then i reboot my phone to find myself in a boot loop. what am i doing wrong HELP

  • Johnny

    So does Pangu contain malware or not? I’ve read contradicting things regarding this, but know of no definitive conclusion. I’d like to be 100% certain that there is no malware before jailbreaking.

    • Moustakias

      Neither you nor anyone else can ever be 100% certain. It’s not that kind of party. Sorry.

  • Diego

    My Pangunew Icon on the screen is white and didn’t open, open and closes automatically.

          • John

            Restore your device using itunes and start all over with the whole procedure. I did it until it finally worked. Which only took several times but who’s counting lol

      • Gail Singian Galura

        Do another press restore and jailbreak again but make sure you sign out from icloud, no fingerprint and no passcode.

  • Jociley Reis Da Luz

    I’ve succesfully installed Pangu jailbreak, but when I tried to install OpenSSL from inside of it, it happened the following:

  • Stephen Shin Barker

    Is there a way to actually remove the pangu app after you’re done with it?

  • gaucho

    I advise you to wait until the full update, because even install the applications compatible with IOS 8.x.x better then expected

  • Juan

    can’t go past this

    • Weebet

      I’ve tried on 3 different computers, each one has a different issue… First one is like the one you posted, 2nd one can’t even pass the first step, and lastly one can’t even detect the iPhone. The JB app is still buggy and needs work. No choice BUT to wait now…

    • satish

      I ‘ve got the same error. But after restoring the device by placing it in DFU mode fixed the problem.

    Has this actually worked flawless for anyone? cuz it seems almost everyone on here has had issues…..

    • Moto

      it worked for me without a problem. turned off find my iphone, tuch ID and passcode. step 2/6 took a couple of minutes but after that it was done in a minute or 2. after that installed openssh and then cydia

  • Mike

    Personally I’ll wait for a untethered jailbreak to release there’s not reason to rush and risk bricking your iphone when the jailbreak apps haven’t been optimized to support ios8 and iphone 6 plus. If your a developer then it makes sense to jailbreak it now IMO

    • Kleinbird

      After Jailbreaking you can’t turn passcode or TouchID back on. Doing so will cause a bootloop if you restart the phone. I learned that hard way. I also didn’t see an icons.

So, what can i do, can i downgrade to 8.0.2 and then upgrade via itunes. Has anyone tried that?

    Can anyone tell me, while this Pangu process is taking place (Step 2/6 is taking forever by the way), why do my apps keep crashing, more specifically when it involves the use of the keyboard?

    • france

      i am the same in this progress!!

  • Roger Caron

    Does anyone have any patience??? Let Pangu fix it! We know there is a jailbreak that needs some tweaking. Do you really need it this instant??? Most likely, it won’t work as you expect. BE PATIENT!!!

    I need a jailbreak now cuz my damn girl updated my iPhone 5S to iOS 8.1 (by accident she claims). by accident my ass!! Now without Cydia I can’t get back the “bigU Movies” app I installed from xsellize repo or insanelyi repo to watch new movies like John Wick, Fury, Dracula Untold, The Equalizer, Annabelle and No Good Deed. I really hope I can jailbreak soon cuz my nights & weekends won’t be the same when I can’t watch movies..

    I did a factory restore with a clean install of iOS 8.1. I open pangu as administrator and plug in my iPad mini or iPhone 5c. Pangu doesn’t recognize my device and the blue jailbreak button never shows up. Can someone please help me? I really want to jailbreak my devices. Please help.

    trouble restoring ipod…

  • nahanturk2

    CONSTANTLY stuck on loading screen, even if I go into recovery mode it goes back into the loading screen (boot, loading)

    • Javo

      Do a manually one
      Begin by holding the sleep/wake button at the top right of the device and the Home button at the bottom center of the face at the same time.
      Hold them both until you see the screen go black. In some cases, you may need to keep holding them even after the red power-off slider appears. If it appears, just keep holding it.
      Wait until the silver Apple logo appears.
      When this happens, you can let go – the iPhone is rebooting.

  • jzack

    Jason you might wanna add this on the jailbreak requirement, before start jailbreaking process : turn off antivirus as it might be blocking some ports for pangu to connect to their server.
