Pangu 8 for Mac

Although the iOS 8 untethered jailbreak was released nearly a month ago, it is only just recently that it has been fully updated to include a number of missing features. First of all, Cydia was not in the first release, mainly because it was not compatible with iOS 8. Within a couple of days, Saurik rectified that and users could install Cydia manually. Second, the tool was only available in the Chinese language but, on one of the many updates provided by Pangu, that was changed and it is now in English.

Third, Pangu 8 was only available to Windows users. For those who had a Mac, the choice was either waiting for a new version or using a virtual PC to install Windows on and then jailbreak with that version. That has now changed and Pangu has released a Mac version of their iOS 8 untethered jailbreak tool. If you have been eagerly awaiting this, here’s how to use it.
