Pangu 8 – iOS 8 Jailbreak Tutorial

Just under one month ago, Pangu released an untethered jailbreak utility for iOS 8 . At the time, it was a little unstable and did not have Cydia included in it and that put many people off using it to jailbreak. A number of updates have rectified the problems and the jailbreak is now complete. Time is running out for anyone who wants to jailbreak iOS 8-8.1. Apple is on the verge of releasing iOS 8.1.1 which we now know patches the jailbreak so if you are thinking about it, now is the time to do it. Update : If you are on iOS 9 , check out our Pangu 9 Jailbreak Tutorial .
