    Seeing that the new jailbreak has been "vetted" by several hackers as well as several trustworthy sites, this tutorial lays out the steps for using PanGu to jailbreak your iOS 7.1.X device. This works for any and all devices running iOS 7.1, 7.1.1 and soon 7.1.2.

    Like all jailbreaks in history, prior to following the steps, make a backup of your device. The jailbreak does work on OTA updated, but it's always best to start fresh then jailbreak your device.

    Note that the images below may or may not be what you see, depending on whether you have your OS's language pack for Simplified Chinese, and even then, most users may not understand what's going on.

    There is also a troubleshooting section at the bottom for those having issues with Pangu.

    Note: iPhoneForums, iPadForums and AppleForums DOES NOT condone piracy of any kind. PanGu DOES optionally incorporate a notorious piracy app, which is the Chinese "alternative" to Cydia. Devices that are jailbroken for the sole purpose of utilizing this application to its fullest potential WILL NOT receive any assistance as a result of installing an extremely unstable package alongside the piracy app. If you have sincerely accidentally installed this piracy application and would like to remove it without restoring, please follow this Reddit tutorial.

    Prior to beginning this tutorial, please disable your PIN/password as well as your device's autolock to ensure a smooth process.

    Download Link

    Windows v1.0.0

    ------

    Windows v1.1.0

    Mac OS v1.1.0

    Step 1: Download the exe/dmg file for your respective computer OS.

    Step 2: Remove your device's passcode lock, and change your device's date to June 2nd, 2014 or prior. The time does not matter.

    Go to Settings > General > Date & Time

    Step 3: Run Pangu as an administrator (if applicable)

    Step 4: Connect your iOS 7.1.X device to your computer and click the jailbreak button upon receiving the message.

    Step 5: Wait. This procedure may take anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes depending on your computer's processing ability.

    Upon clicking the Jailbreaking button, your device's screen should look like the below

    Your device should now be rebooting.

    You may or may not see this procedure depending on whether you've turned off Passcode Lock or not.

    If your device is password protected, during this procedure, prevent your device from going to sleep by tapping on it once the screen dims prior to it going to sleep. If you have turned off Passcode Lock, you don't have to worry.

    And you are not successfully jailbroken on iOS 7.1.X.

    [FIN]





    Pangu v1.0.0 - Chinese Version [ARCHIVE]

    Step 1: Download the exe file for your respective computer OS.

    Step 2: Change your device's date to June 2nd, 2014 or prior. The time does not matter.

    Go to Settings > General > Date & Time

    [​IMG]

    Step 3: Run the utility as an administrator (if applicable)

    [​IMG]

    Step 4: Untick the box which installs the piracy app, plug your device in, and click the Jailbreak button. (Only applicable to Pangu v1.0.0)

    [​IMG]

    Step 5: Wait about a minute or two for the jailbreak data uploading to commence and finish.

    [​IMG]

    Step 6: At this point, the progress bar is about 50%, and has not moved for more than 30 seconds. At this point, tap on the PanGu application that's now on your Springboard.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Step 7: The jailbreaking process will continue, and will reboot at least twice.

    [​IMG]

    Step 8: The jailbreak is now finished, and your device should be rebooting, with Cydia appearing on your Springboard.

    Troubleshooting
    • If your device is bootlooping either during/after the jailbreak has ran, or while rebooting your device any time after you've done the jailbreak at all (meaning if you jailbroke using Pangu last week and you're bootlooping today, this includes you), until it gets fixed (if ever), shine a light at your device's ambient light sensor and/or plug headphones into the headphone jack, and hard reset the device by simultaneously pressing and holding both the power and home buttons together until you see the Apple logo, then release. Do so with either a light shining on the sensor and/or headphones plugged in.
    • If for some reason Pangu utility is crashing for you on your computer midway through the procedure, delete the Pangu app (if applicable) and reboot your device. Then place your device into Airplane Mode, and re-run the Pangu utility.
    • If the above two fail, use another version of Pangu (namely v1.0.0)

    Pangu v1.1.0 has been released. The link has been updated in the first post. Boot loops have been fixed, the utility now reflects the language of your computer, and has the piracy app removed based on your computer's locality.

    Pruned the guide a little. Included English instructions and retained the Chinese instructions (thank you iPadForums for the spoiler tags!) Excuse the slightly fuzzy images used in the tutorial. I'm not sure why Puush is giving me fuzzy images today. I'll see if I can replace them at a later date.
