    Today, an iOS 7.1.X jailbreak has been released by the name of PanGu, which has a Chinese origin, and works for all devices running iOS 7.1 and 7.1.1 (as well as 7.1.2 once the utility has been updated and iOS 7.1.2 is released).

    Note that at the start of the release, you will not see 100% compatibility with tweaks that previously worked on 7.1's GeekSn0w or tweaks that worked on Evasi0n7's 7.0-7.0.6 jailbreak. Most packages still work though some do not, and it's ill advised to edit your firmware identifier via iFile. Share your experience and queries on PanGu.

    It may be a false positive. I'm getting mixed results, but it's best be on the safe side.

    As the utility has been vetted by known developers as well as trustworthy news sites, I'll retract my prior statement but will still point out the wariness that should be present while using the utility.

    Mods/Admins can close this thread if they see fit and re-open the discussion thread under the supervision of a mod/admin

    Well, me shouldn't forget that the known jailbreak devs are human and, therefore, not immune to making mistakes. I seem to remember one jailbreak team adding a Chinese store that paid the jb developers for including the store in the jailbreak. I'm wondering if that optional store in the current jb is a similar deal.

    In the case of @Evad3rs, yes, that would be the case. But PanGu is of China-origins, so naturally they would have what we consider a piracy app included because Cydia is not Chinese-friendly. But the developers did make it optional to install the "Chinese Cydia" variant by adding a tickbox as opposed to Evasi0n7 which included it right off the bat. Granted that this is a Chinese-origin jailbreak, the incorporation of what we consider a piracy app is only fair since they want the Chinese users to be able to actually use a Cydia variant.

    In any case, PanGu is "safe" to run, but to our readers, remember that this forum (as well as its sister forums) do not condone piracy at all, and there is a method to remove the piracy related packages as instructed by a trustworthy developer here if you sincerely accidentally left the box ticked and do not want to restore.

    Anyone else had this fail?

    Pangu icon appeared on ipad. Loaded it it said "keep the device connected" it rebooted once but that's as far as it gets. I noticed the text on the Pangu app turned red suggesting it failed for some reason - and the progress bar only got to around 95%

    UPDATE: This may have been my bad. I ran it again but watched every step. On the reboot it was asking for my PIN so I can't help wondering whether I missed that last time and it eventually timed out.

    All installed and working now :)
