Pangu iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak for Mac OS X now available; adds English support and fixes bugs in Windows version


The Pangu jailbreak, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.1 released by a group of Chinese hackers earlier in the week, was available only on Windows at launch.

The wait for Mac users is finally over, as the Pangu team has just updated their tool to v1.1 that adds a Mac version, fixes bugs and adds an English interface.

Like the Windows version, Pangu jailbreak for Mac works with the following iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.1 compatible devices:

  • iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4
  • iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2
  • Retina iPad mini, iPad Mini (1st generation iPad mini)
  • iPod touch 5G

Here are the release notes for Pangu v1.1:

1. Add English support.

2. Optimize the file size.

3. Fix the boot loop bug.

4. Using new info leak bug instead of @i0n1c’s

5. Add online self verification

It appears that with v1.1, the Pangu team is no long using the exploits discovered by security researcher and hacker Stefan Esser aka i0n1c. Instead, they’re using a new vulnerability, which is strange as they’ve burned another exploit for a .1 release.

Well-known hackers like MuscleNerd of the evad3rs team and iH8sn0w, developer of p0sixpwn and Sn0wbreeze, have confirmed that the Windows version of the jailbreak is safe and does not include any malware or spyware. So we don’t expect any issues with the Mac version as well. However, we’ll update the post as soon as we get a confirmation on the Mac version.

You can download the tool from this page. If you need help, check out our step-by-step guide on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 – iOS 7.1 using Pangu.

If you’re on iOS 7.0.6 or lower, and were holding off upgrading to iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.2 because of the lack of a jailbreak, then it would be prudent to update your device to iOS 7.1.1, and jailbreak it using Pangu to play it safe. iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 don’t have any major changes and improvements (iOS 7.1 change log, iOS 7.1.1 change log), but iOS 7.1.1 is a lot more stable, and you don’t want to lose the opportunity to upgrade.
