With the release of the new iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak tool, PanGu, a team of China-based iOS hackers, has delighted some in the jailbreak community. But, it has done so at the expense of two exploits that could have potentially helped jailbreak developers create a future jailbreak solution for the upcoming iOS 8.

Famed iOS hacker iH8sn0w took to his Twitter page on Monday to confirm that the new PanGu iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak tool was created using two key exploits that are related to code signing and the kernel, and the “syslogd chown” vulnerability, which was disclosed at the Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas in August.

The use of the two exploits in the PanGu tool has raised concerns that Apple could patch both vulnerabilities before iOS 8 is made available for users later this year, iDownloadBlog reported, adding that the new iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak also contains code that will make it compatible with iOS 7.1.2, which is expected to be released soon.

While the release of the PanGu jailbreak tool has been welcomed by many jailbreak users, it has also been criticized by some who argue that the exploits used for the jailbreak are wasted because the next major iOS version -- the iOS 8 -- is only three months away, iDownloadBlog report added.

Meanwhile, iH8sn0w has confirmed on Twitter that PanGu iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak package does not include “spyware” or malicious trails.”

The new jailbreak tool is currently limited to Windows while a Mac version is in development. The software works with multiple iOS devices, including iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 5th gen, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina Display.

Here is a video tutorial, provided by iDownloadBlog, which shows how to jailbreak iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 using PanGu on Windows.
