How to Jailbreak iOS 7.1.x to iPhone or iPad with Pangu 1.1 from Mac

How to do Jailbreak Untethered on iPad or iPhone to iOS 7.1.x on Mac with Pangu 1.1

Yesterday we were pleasantly surprised that the Chinese PanguTeam hacker team had been working hard over the last few days, resulting in an update of Pangu , their tool for Jailbreak to all iOS 7.1.x compatible devices.

The tool Pangu reaches its 1.1 version and comes with some improvements that fixes looping reboot failures, eliminates the installation of the Chinese app store, makes the process much faster and is finally Mac compatible. So if you haven’t updated your device to the latest iOS version yet because you were waiting for the Jailbreak release, you can do it now with peace of mind, since Pangu has arrived and after the first days of testing we can say that it is safe .

As always, we recommend that you back up your device prior to performing this process through iTunes or iCloud. Please also make sure you have iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 installed on your iPhone or iPad , otherwise you will need to upgrade your device to one of these versions.

This tool requires that we have iTunes installed on our Mac, something that surely all of you will already have, but if not you can download the latest version from here. In addition, if you have upgraded your iPhone or iPad to iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 from an earlier version through OTA (Over the Air), it is recommended that you restore the device from iTunes to avoid failures during the process. Once the device has been restored we can dump the backup so that we don’t lose any data stored on the device.

Before explaining how to perform the Jailbreak on your device we want to make it clear that if you perform this process it will be at your own risk and that we are not responsible for any damage your device may suffer . This tool is beyond our control and we have no relationship with its developers.

Jailbreak to iPad, iPad Mini or iPhone with iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 with Pangu 1.1 on Mac

Once we are sure that we meet the requirements we can start the process to perform Jailbreak untethered to our iDevice with iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1:

1.- Download Pangu 1.1 tool for Mac.

2.- Disable the code lock (if you have it enabled), connect your device to the computer and run Pangu 1.1 to start the Jailbreak process.

3.- As we can see in the program interface, the model of our iDevice will appear as well as the iOS version it has installed, so we will only have to click on the black button that says “Jailbreak” .

4.- When the process starts it will stop and on the screen of our Mac we will see some instructions that we will have to carry out to continue.

5.- Now we have to enter Settings – General – Date and time to deactivate the option “Automatic adjustment” .

6.- Once this is done, we will have to set the following date and time: June 2, 2014 (day of Apple’s keynote), 06:00 . The Jailbreak process will continue normally if we have performed the steps correctly.

7.- When the process reaches the halfway point, we will be able to see how a new application called Pangu has appeared on the screen of our iPhone or iPad. You will have to tap on it and confirm that you want to open the “Pangu” application .

8.- We wait for the process to advance without touching anything or disconnecting the device , the Jailbreak process will take only a few seconds.

9.- Once we have done this, the device will reboot to finish the process. It is very important that we do not touch anything or unlock the device, since Pangu has to perform a process on our iPad or iPhone .

10.- When the process is finished, the device will reboot again and we will be able to see in Pangu’s interface that the process has been successful.

A quick and easy way to get Jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 on iPad or iPhone

Once we have done all the steps, the Jailbreak will be installed on our iPhone or iPad and we will have Cydia on our SpringBoard ready to use . As you can see, the process is quite simple and will only take a couple of minutes, so there should be no complications when doing the process.

If by any chance the process ends and you don’t see the Cydia icon on your SpringBoard, most likely something has gone wrong in the process, so all we have to do is run the process again making sure we follow all the steps correctly .
