Chinese jailbreaker team Pangu released a new jailbreak tool Wednesday for the latest iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 firmware update, and now it’s time to install some of the jailbreak tweaks and apps on supported devices.
The Pangu jailbreak tool, which is currently available only for Windows operating system, supports devices, including iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini and iPod touch fifth-generation.
After the Pangu team released the iOS 8 jailbreak solution, iOS developer Jay Freeman, commonly known as Saurik, updated Cydia for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1. Here’s what he said:
I’ve given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I’ve also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I’m on that is about to take off).
Although Cydia is not yet packaged with the Pangu jailbreak, there is another way to install Cydia on devices running iOS 8 or iOS 8.1. Here is a video tutorial, provided by iDownloadBlog, showing how to install Cydia on iOS 8:
Saurik also released an update to Cydia Substrate, an underlying framework that all jailbreak tweaks depend upon. Click here for more details.
Currently only a limited number of jailbreak tweaks are compatible with the new Pangu jailbreak tool. A list of supported tweaks and apps that can be installed on devices running jailbroken iOS 8 or iOS 8.1 are listed below.
