iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release: iPhone Hackers PanGu Claim To Make Jailbreak Tool Download Available 'Soon'

iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Release: iPhone Hackers PanGu Claim To Make Jailbreak Tool Download Available 'Soon'

The iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak for iPhone has been highly sought after for a while. The numerous updates to performance and UI introduced in iOS 7.1 back in March mainly benefitted users. Though at the price of being un-jailbreakable by the famed Evad3rs's tool launched last holiday, many Cydia users were left without the ability to install their favorite tweaks and apps. But that may change if PanGu has anything to say about it. The Chinese iOS hacker group showed off a jailbroken iPhone 5s running the latest software (found via Reddit). In the second part of the video we see the same device being rebooted -- indicating that PanGu was in fact running an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak.

Update 6.22.2014: The video has since been removed from Youtube "as a violation of Youtube's policy against spams, scams," etc. Not looking good for this whole 'PanGu iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak release.'

It's very possible that PanGu is looking to make available their iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak findings, though we wouldn't start the fanfare just yet. For one, we don't know anything about PanGu. iOS jailbreakers like the Evad3rs have been known in the jailbreak community for a while. PanGu could have perfectly good intentions though we'd wait a bit before installing their iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak tool right away. Apple touted iOS security in theirlatest WWDC keynote, though unlocking your main device from an unknown source could definitely lead to some trouble down the road.

iOS 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Vs. iOS 8 Jailbreak

The iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak has never been impossible, simply unreleased. Videos like this one have surfaced in the past showing that it's not even difficult to jailbreak Apple's latest software. One of the main reasons to keep the iOS 7.1 jailbreak in few people's hands would be to make sure Cupertino doesn't close any holes used to exploit the software. Not releasing the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak makes things easier on the Evad3rs and other iOS hackers interested in releasing a jailbreak for iOS 8. The upcoming iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch software coming this fall comes with many features jailbreakers have come to expect. Though without tweaks likeActivatorNitrousWinterboard and more, we're still going to want that iOS 8 untethered jailbreak eventually. Until then we'll have to wait for the iOS 7.1 edition. It's still up in the air whether we can trust in PanGu's jailbreak tool or if it will even spoil the possibility of a jailbroken iOS 8. Let's just hope we can have our jailbroken cake and eat it too.
Are you looking forward to the potential release of an iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak? Would you rather wait for the jailbreak of iOS 8? Sound off below!

iOS 7.1/7.1.1 Untethered jailbreak will be out very soon as the sources say..

iOS 7.1 / 7.1.1 Untethered Jailbreak Status Update

By Shantanu Naik | June 22nd, 2014

iOS 7.1 Untethered jailbreak will be out very soon as the sources say..

As most of you might already know by now, iOS 7.1.x has been out for a few months and if you want to preserve your device’s jailbreaking potential, then you must avoid updating to it at all costs as the Evasi0n7 untethered jailbreaking tool has, as we expected, been patched by the Cupertino-based company in this latest update.
Even though Apple pushed out several iOS 7.0.x releases without patching Evasi0n, it was something of a formality that iOS 7.1 – the first major update since iOS 7 arrived in September – would not be so accommodating. The first couple of betas seemed to let things slide, but with Apple getting to work on counteracting the exploits in the latter releases, it was evident that the final, end-user version would almost certainly be locked down.

Whether the Evad3rs team has any exploits up its sleeve, or plans to get to work on iOS 7.1.x, remains to be seen. With the software now halfway through its life-cycle, it may well be that any current progress is saved for the battle against iOS 8 later on this year, in which case, it’s even more essential that jailbreak fans remain on iOS 7.0.x for the time being.
The cat-and-mouse battle is ongoing, and now, it will be intriguing to see how the jailbreak scene responds. Thanks to Evad3rs, which includes seasoned jailbreakers like Pod2g and MuscleNerd, Cydia has been thriving, with many great tweaks, apps and themes having appeared over the past couple of months. We sincerely hope that this trend will continue, whether iOS 7.1.x is breached or not, but by refraining from updating, you can ensure that you and your iOS device remains a part of the fun.

So, the take-home message here is this: do not update to iOS 7.1.x. If and when a jailbreak is made available, we will – as ever – let you guys know, and provide our usual tutorials and step-by-step guides on how you can go about jailbreaking your device.
Until then, though, sit tight, remain on your current firmware, and continue enjoying the many wondrous tweaks provided by the scene.
Update x1: Winocm posted a video on YouTube demonstrating iOS 7.1 untethered boot, which further adds fuel to the fact that the untethered iOS 7.1 jailbreak is on its way. But no time frame has been given for its release and there’s no word from the Evad3rs team either, the people behind the Evasi0n7 untethered jailbreak.
Update x2: iH8sn0w claimed on Twitter that his iPhone 4s is currently jailbroken on iOS 7.1. But details, as usual, are scarce, and it’s currently unknown when the actual jailbreak will be made available in the public domain.
Update x3: Apple has now released iOS 7.1.1, which just like the 7.1 firmware can’t be jailbroken on the latest devices as yet. If you are on 7.0.6 or below, you are advised to stay where you are if you want to keep your jailbreak.
Update x4: i0n1c, Winocm and Yeongjin have all managed to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 independently. i0n1c’s one is called Cyberelevat0r and this is how it works. Still no word on ETA from any of them.
