The Pangu team today released an iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 jailbreak for iPhone 4s and up, all iPads and iPod touch 5G. The jailbreak took everyone by surprise, including Cydia creator Jay Freeman aka saurik, who couldn’t update Cydia in time.
The good news is that saurik has, in a short period of time, managed to update Cydia for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1, and has pushed its .deb file to his website for manual download. He has also handed the Cydia installation package to the Pangu team, who should hopefully release a quick update to Pangu, with Cydia.
I’ve given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I’ve also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I’m on that is about to take off).
The .deb file can be downloaded from this link.
Update: Here’s our guide on how to manually install Cydia:
