Previously we showed you how to Jailbreak an Apple device running iOS 8, iOS 8.0.1, iOS 8.0.2, or iOS 8.1 using the Pangu Jailbreak tool. Unfortunately, Cydia's Substrate was late to the game had to be kept out of the tool, so the popular Jailbreak marketplace never showed up after the Jailbreak. In this guide, we will show you how to manually install Cydia on Jailbroken iOS 8.x.

Recently we shared a story that a consortium of companies which included Walmart, Best Buy, Rite Aid and more were refusing to accept Apple's new Apple Pay mobile payment platform because they were working on their own alternative which is called CurrentC. The consortium spear-headed by Walmart is called MCX and they claim that their CurrentC platform is “a payment option that is widely accepted, secure, and developed with [customers'] best interests in mind.”
It turns out that they were exaggerating when they described their system as "secure." According to the latest reports directly from MCX, the CurrentC mobile payment platform (which is in its trial test run) was just hacked and an unspecified number of email addresses were stolen. Here's the statement from MCX,

Last week, we saw the Pangu team surprisingly release the iOS 8 Jailbreak for all devices that support the firmware. The Jailbreak however is still "under construction" so it's not perfect yet. One problem with the new Pangu tool is that Cydia is not included in the initial Jailbreak, however Cydia's substrate has since been updated and it's now possible to add Cydia manually to iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad (we'll have a video on that in a bit).
Here you will find a tutorial teaching how to Jailbreak iOS 8.1, iOS 8.0.2, iOS 8.0.1, or iOS 8.0 on the following supported devices:
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 4s
- iPad (2, 3, 4, Air, Air 2, mini 1, mini 2, mini 3)
- iPod touch 5
How to Jailbreak:
1. Download the Pangu tool here
2. Right click on the .exe and Run as Administrator
3. Plug in your supported iOS device and wait for Pangu to recognize it
4. Click the big blue button on the Pangu program and let your iOS device and the Pangu tool run its course
5. As soon as it's done, you should see two Pangu icons on your Homescreen, meaning you are now successfully Jailbroken on iOS 8+
Once again, Cydia is not included in the current Pangu tool, however we will have a video and written guide on how to install Cydia manually in a bit.
Unlike the iPad Mini 3, the new iPad Air 2 isn't a minor, incremental update, but it actually features important hardware innovations. Besides the usual aspects taken into consideration - processor, display, thinness; Apple doesn't get into technical details, but we now have a new report that highlights the improvements Apple has made in the glass coating of the device.
Many are looking forward to scratch-resistant sapphire covers, but one display expert believes the impressive anti-reflective glass coating on the iPad Air 2 is what we'll be seeing on upcoming Apple products.
Raymond Soneira of DisplayMate Technologies says that the new anti-reflection screen on Apple's iPad Air 2 has a screen reflectance level of just 2.5 percent which is the lowest level he has ever measured on a tablet or smartphone. Soneira notes that previous record holders didn't get pass by the 4.5 percent mark. Here's what he said about the new coating technology:
"Anti-reflection coatings are used in just about all high-end lenses and related optics. The problem is that most coatings scratch easily and show fingerprints easily. Apple (or more likely one of its suppliers) has found something that doesn't scratch easily or show fingerprints and works well on tablet and smartphone touch screens."
He believes that Apple won't utilize sapphire in future iPhone screens because it has a very high 8 percent reflectance rate. Here's what more Soneira added:
"Presumably Apple's future products will have the same Anti-Reflection coatings as well - so forget about Sapphire on future iPhones because if you apply an Anti-Reflection coating to Sapphire, which has a very high 8% Reflectance all by itself, you lose its very high scratch resistance because the softer coating is now on top."
And here's why Apple can put both the anti-reflective coating and a sapphire panel together
"If Apple were to put the same anti-reflective coating found on the iPad Air 2 onto a mythical...
Yesterday, Microsoft has issued new updates to its official OneNote apps for iPhone, iPad and Mac devices, bringing some useful features. Here's what the OneNote team said on its official blog:
"Fall is here—at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere—and the days are getting shorter. That means you’ll have to finish your work more quickly if you want to get outside and catch a few rays of sunshine before it gets dark. We want to help, so today we’re releasing an update for OneNote on iPhone, iPad and Mac with new features that make it even easier for you to get organized and be productive!"
There are two different versions of OneNote on the iTunes Store, one for iPad owners and one for iPhone users. This is really useful for iPad owners as they get a specific app that doesn't compromise on important features. Here are the new changes for iPad owners:
- Insert Files from Other Services - the ability to insert files from other cloud storage services on iOS 8 has been added. You just need to Tap Insert > File to browse through your files from iCloud and any other file storage apps that you have installed on your iPad.
- More Password Protection Support - it's now possible to create new password protected sections, and change or remove the password for existing protected section.
- Support for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
- Touch ID support
- Organize Pages - Now you can move and reorder pages in a section as well as manage subpages.
Apple is known for being able to quickly bring the latest version of its operating system to most supported devices, being in big contrast with Google's Android who has always faced fragmentation problems. Now, according to data provided by Apple itself to developers, Apple's iOS 8 adoption has finally breaken 50% nearly 6 weeks after launch.
Apple informs that as of Oct. 27, iOS 8 was installed on 52 percent of devices registered through the App Store. Thus, iOS 8 finally surpasses the marketshare of iOS 7, which accounts for 43 percent to the data om Apple's developer webpage.
These new numbers represent a five percent increase in adoption over the past three weeks. Still, the iOS 8 adoption is slower than last year's iOS 7, which garnered a 52 percent share of Web traffic in only one week.
The botched iOS 8.0.1 patch could be one of the causes for the slow update, since owners could be reluctant to upgrade to the latest iOS 8 version. However, Apple's latest iOS 8.1 update is said to be stable, with no major glitches, which means iOS 8 adoption is bound to increase over the coming weeks.
It seems that Apple's business is flourishing these days, with excellent iPhone sales, constantly increasing shipments of its Mac products and the upcoming release of the Apple Watch. After Apple has recently made public its earnings report, the market has responded positively and Apple shares closed Tuesday at an all time high of $106.74.
However, despite the new record, it should be taken into account that Apple's shares have only appreciated 6.7 percent over the past two years since reaching a high point in September 2012.
But since May 20, this year, Apple's share have appreciated 23.57 percent and have paid out a one-half percent dividend, which shows just how fruitful this year has been so far.
And this could continue into 2015, as well, since Apple disclosed record spending on R&D that will mostly go on the new Apple Watch. But there's Apple Pay, the opening of more stores, the mix between Beats and iTunes, the unveiling of the new spaceship campus and much, much more.
This probably won't shock you as it was highly expected - iTunes has suffered a decline in digital music sales and this has been confirmed by Apple itself. Apple has now officially admitted in an annual filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that its iTunes music business isn't as great as it used to be. Here's what the company said:
"Growth in net sales from the iTunes Store was driven by increases in revenue from app sales reflecting continued growth in the installed base of iOS devices and the expanded offerings of iOS Apps and related in-App purchases. This was partially offset by a decline in sales of digital music”.
Industry figures show subscription streaming services like Spotify and Pandora are growing in popularity while digital downloads are declining, so this isn't such a surprise, after all. This is actually on of the reasons why Apple purchased Beats Audio, after all. Here's what Tim Cook said about the acquisition at the time:
"These guys are really unique. It’s like finding the precise grain of sand on the beach. They’re rare and very hard to find.”
According to the Recording Industry Association of America, in the U.S., sales of digital music singles and albums fell 11% and 14% respectively during the first six months of 2014. On the other hand, streaming music services saw revenue jump 28% in the first half of 2014, so that's where Apple should turn its attention to.
Recent rumors suggest that Apple is rebuilding Beats Music and plans to relaunch it next year as part of iTunes. So, it seems like we have one more big product coming in early 2015, besides the much awaited Apple Watch.
