The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.X was released today, but with it came a little mysterious checkbox that does what we’ve found to be some potentially harmful things — besides the fact that checking the box will install an app for downloading pirated apps.
To everyone’s surprise, and as we reported first, the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.X was released earlier today courtesy of a mysterious team of Chinese jailbreak developers. But the jailbreak’s GUI is in Chinese and can be quite confusing for many, so here’s a look at exactly how to use Pangu to jailbreak your iOS device.
A group of Chinese hackers calling themselves “Pangu” have just released what they’re claiming is an iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, and this time it looks like we might have a bit of evidence that it could be legitimate. (Update: reports are streaming in that the jailbreak does indeed successfully install Cydia on iOS 7.1.X devices.)
Last week, iH8sn0w had released a new version of p0sixspwn, which makes it a lot easier to perform an untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.6. Prior to that, users had to use Redsn0w to perform a tethered jailbreak, and then install the p0sixspwn package to convert the tethered jailbreak into an untethered jailbreak.
Few days back, security researcher Stefan Esser aka i0n1c, notorious for trolling the jailbreak community, revealed he had successfully jailbroken iOS 7.1.1.
He followed it up with a post to explain how his iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak works. He has just published a video to show his untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 called Cyberelevat0r.
There was some good news on the jailbreaking front earlier this month when pod2g said that he’s working on iOS 7.1/7.1.1 jailbreak. We have some more good news for all of you — iOS 7.1.1 has been jailbroken by winocm and i0n1c.
Apex–a tweak from renowned Auxo-maker and jailbreak developer Sentry–was a smash hit when originally released for iOS 6 last year. Today, Sentry posted a Vine teasing an upcoming update to the tweak dubbed Apex 2, bringing Apex to fit in with iOS 7 aesthetic and updated to be technically compatible with the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system.
Unlike, many of the Cydia offerings we cover here at iPhoneHacks, a new tweak by the name of AudioExplorer+ is actually its own standalone app. It can’t be offered on the App Store because it needs to search the filesystem of your device, so the developer launched the app on the Cydia store to bring it to jailbroken iOS users. AudioExplorer+ has been around for along time, but a recent update to the powerful audio file-finding app recently landed adding a wide variety of new features.
