Jailbreak iOS 8.1 And Set Passcode Without Bootloop, Updated Pangu 1.1 Coming

iOS 8, How to Jailbreak 8.1 And Set a Passcode Without Bootloop, Updated Pangu 1.1 Coming – As of late, there have been no shortage of miracles in the world of iOS 8 jailbreaking, and today’s no exception. Recently, Pangu once again swooped in to save the day, as the team released the first Untethered iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.1, meaning that the downtime between the team’s 7.1 through 7.1.2 utility and their all-new 8.1 jailbreak was merely one month. However, the aforementioned jailbreak for iOS 8.1 hasn’t been without its fair share of complexities – for example, Cydia isn’t bundled with the utility and, until now, jailbreakers haven’t been able to set passcodes and reboot without their devices entering a dreaded infinite bootlop, forcing a restore. However, as we just alluded to in the preceding sentence, things are starting to look up for the iOS 8 jailbreak, certainly more so than last year’s equally rough iOS 7 jailbreak launch, which didn’t take place until December. Those who have jailbroken 8.1 can now officially set a passcode/longer password, as well as fully enable Touch ID post iOS 8.1 jailbreak on the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. However, that’s not all, the good news isn’t over yet – continue past the break for details on an all-in-one jailbreak 8.1 utility that will be bundled with Cydia!

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak – How To Set A Passcode Without Causing A Bootloop

First and foremost, if you have yet to jailbreak 8.1 and you’re interested in doing so, we strongly advise following either our quick Pangu iOS 8 guide or following the video embedded below, which outlines a one-shot process for jailbreaking iOS 8.1 and, after the fact, installing Cydia.

However, if you’re not in a rush to jailbreak Apple’s latest public firmware, it might behoove you to hold off until tomorrow, as the Pangu Team officially confirmed that they’ll release a new update to Pangu that will come packaged with Cydia, making it easier than ever to jailbreak 8.1 Untethered on the following devices: the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4S, the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, the original iPad Air, iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display, the first-generation iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and, finally, the 5th generation iPod touch.

While we’ll release a detailed tutorial of own alongside the new Pangu 1.1 update for iOS 8.1, the content linked to in today’s article, including both the above link and the below video, will aid you in your quest to jailbreak.

As for those who are already jailbroken on iOS 8, you can now install an updated version of Cydia (the graphical user interface for distributing third-party iOS tweaks) that rectifies the bootloop passcode issues.

Jailbreakers Running iOS 8 Through 8.1 Can Now Set A Passcode!

In addition to following the above video to ensure that you steer clear of any of said bootloop problems, simply follow the quick set of instructions found below.

Step 1. If you want to err on the side of extreme caution, just in case, plug your device into your computer via your USB cable, launch iTunes and create a backup.

Step 2. Open Cydia, navigate to the ‘Changes’ tab at the bottom and tap ‘Refresh’ in the upper left hand corner of the screen.

Step 3. Install the available updates, tab the ‘Close’ button once they’ve finished installing, set a passcode inside the ‘Settings’ app and reboot to your heart’s content!

Conditional Step 4. If, and only if, you didn’t install the updates prior to setting a passcode and you’re experiencing the bootloop issues, enter recovery mode, restore to 8.1, re-jailbreak, install Cydia and, finally, restore from your backup.

Jailbreak iOS 8.1 Untethered And Install Cydia

Furthermore, as previously mentioned, for those who wish to jailbreak 8.1 now, we advise following the above tutorial from iCrackUriDevice, which does an excellent job of detailing every required step to not only jailbreak successfully, but also to circumvent any potential complications during the process of jailbreaking or installing Cydia.

However, if you have your sights set on tomorrow’s all-in-one Pangu 1.1 jailbreak iOS 8.1 solution, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak, as we’ll have first coverage on the upcoming utility.

How to Install Cydia On iOS 8 Post Jailbreak 8.1 via Pangu, Can I Get Cydia? Detailed Jailbreak Installation Tutorial – Yesterday was arguably one of the most exciting days in the world of jailbreaking, as the Pangu Team’s second Untethered jailbreak utility was released to the masses: Pangu for iOS 8, which fully support, and jailbreaks, 8.1 on all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models! However, until earlier today, there was one significant catch – Cydia Substrate, which is essentially the foundation upon which jailbreak developers build tweaks – wasn’t updated to support iOS 8, let alone 8.1. While the team clarified that they ‘rushed’ their tool to ensure that the majority of jailbreakers could take full advantage of this incredible opportunity (we have no clue when Apple will release an updated firmware such as 8.1.1 to patch the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu for iOS 8) it would have been nice if Pangu had better coordinated their release with Saurik to bundle the utility with an updated version of Cydia. Having said that, with only a day between Pangu’s release and Saurik’s Cydia and subsequent Cydia Substrate, updates, there’s absolutely nothing that warrants complaint. Not only can the public jailbreak 8.1 for the iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, 5c, 5, 4s, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, the original iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and the 5th generation iPod touch, but we can now install Cydia with Substrate for the installation of updated tweaks – continue reading past the break for a complete tutorial on installing Cydia post 8.1 Pangu jailbreak!

How To Install Cydia – Can I get Cydia Post Jailbreak 8.1 With Pangu?

Prior to delving into this tutorial, and installing Cydia, your device must be successfully jailbroken on iOS 8 through 8.1 using the latest iteration of Pangu – if you have yet to jailbreak, we strongly advise following our tutorial for all iDevices.

Additionally, while we’ll update our tutorial on Pangu for iOS 8 relatively soon, the below video also highlights instructions for rectifying any potential complications with the new tool (skip to approximately 14:20 into the video to review said instructions).

Now, without further ado, let’s proceed with the following steps, which are required to install Cydia on any jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch or iPad model that running 8.0, 8.0.1 (if you’re on this dreaded firmware, please update to 8.1), 8.0.2 or the latest 8.1 public release.

Cydia Install On iOS 8.1 Post Pangu Jailbreak – Detailed Tutorial!

1. Ensure that your device is jailbroken by following our complete, albeit mostly video-centered, jailbreak 8.1 tutorial. Once jailbroken, ensure that your iOS-based device is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your computer and obtain the Wi-Fi IP address of said iOS device.

  • To do so, simply launch the default Settings app, tap the “Wi-Fi” pane, followed by the ‘i’ button to the right of the connected network – take note of the sequence listed in the IP Address field.

2. Launch the Pangu app from your iPhone, iPad or iPod and install OpenSSH; refer to the above video if you’re at all confused by this step.

3. Download and install any SSH program, two of the recommended tools are listed in our download section below, and establish an SSH connection with the following settings:

Host and/or Server field: [Insert your device's IP address] – acquired in the first step.
Username: root
Password: alpine

4. Once connected via SSH, transfer the two files found in the below download section into the following directory:

private/var/root
  • Your SSH client should automatically resolve to the above directory by default, if, for what ever reason, it doesn’t, you’ll be required to manually navigate to it.

5. Depending on your SSH program, you’ll need to get to the interface for command line and execute the following command through the SSH program itself (if you’re confused by this step, refer to the instructions as highlighted during the video):

dpkg --install cydia-lproj_1.1.12_iphoneos-arm.deb cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb

6. Manually reboot your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with its power button. Once your device boots up, launch Cydia, allow the device’s filesystem to reorganize, and the device to respring, slide through the unlock screen, open Cydia again and, finally, search for and install “Cydia Substrate”.

    • Important Post-Step: Succeeding every reboot, you’ll be required to respring in order to regain full use of the tweaks you’ll eventually install via Cydia. To do so, simply execute the following command inside your SSH program of choice:
killall backboardd
  • [the second 'd' in "backboardd" is both intentional and required]

Congratulations, after following, and completing, six simple and easy-to-understand steps, you’ve successfully installed Cydia on your jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 8 – 8.1!

Jailbreak iOS 8.1 Cydia Download Section – Post Pangu Jailbreak
  1. The necessary Cydia files can be downloaded here for Mac and Windows-based (PC) users.
  2. If you’re on Windows, download the WinSCP SSH client.
  3. Mac users should download the free version of CyberDuck.

Finally, to conclude, if you’re interested in future coverage on how to earn paid iOS 8 through 8.1 App Store apps for free, legally while simultaneously supporting the developers of said apps, and fully unlock your iPhone for use on additional carriers besides the one it was originally intended for, keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered With Pangu iOS 8 On iPhone 6 Plus iPad And All iDevices

How to Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered with Pangu for iOS 8 on iPhone 6 Plus 5S, 5C, 4S iPad Mini 3, Air 2, 4 and iPod Touch 5th generation – Wow – it’s actually here – today, Pangu released their all-new utility to jailbreak 8.1 fully UnTethered: Pangu for iOS 8.0 through 8.1.x! However, before you get too excited, there’s one catch, which is a rather significant one. As of now, the Pangu jailbreak for 8.1 doesn’t install Cydia, as Saurik (the creator of the aforementioned third-party graphical tweak distribution and acquisition interface) has yet to update Cydia Substrate for iOS 8. The way things currently stand, Pangu for iOS 8 is mostly intended for jailbreak developers to get a jump on creating iOS 8-compatible tweaks, as the utility enables full root access, and enables SSH, which is jailbreaking on a fundamental and rudimentary level. However, seeing as there’s no way to determine when the loopholes exploited by Pangu’s new utility will be patched by an updated 8.1.x firmware, those interested in jailbreaking should take advantage of the current opportunity to do so, as you’ll be able to install Cydia once Saurik successfully updates Cydia Substrate for iOS 8 through 8.1.x! For more on the exciting new Pangu jailbreak 8.1 utility, continue past the break.

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak Released – Untethered iOS 8 Jailbreak For iPhone 6 Plus iPad Air 2

This story is still developing… Bookmark it and return later today for a full tutorial on the new Pangu jailbreak 8.1 utility, and a download link once it’s available – follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for complete updates.

Apple Releases iOS 8.1, Can I Jailbreak 8.1 Untethered? A Jailbreaker’s Guide To Updating

Apple Releases 8.1, Can I Jailbreak iOS 8.1 Untethered? Upcoming Jailbreak to likely Support, and Jailbreak, 8.1 – Today, after only two developer beta releases, Apple issued iOS 8.1 (the first substantial 8.x update that introduces a number of enhancements) to the general public. Like its iOS 8.0.x predecessors, namely last month’s 8.0.2 update, 8.1 patches the Untethered Pangu jailbreak – although it sounds rather bleak, 8.1 provides a bright beacon of hope for the first iOS 8 jailbreak. Beyond the option to update to iOS 8.1 via iOS’ built-in OTA (an acronym for over-the-air) update feature, 8.1 can be downloaded and installed directly through iTunes, which is the preferred method; we’ll elaborate on that shortly – however, current iOS 7 through 7.1.2 jailbreak users should unquestionably avoid the latest firmware. In the first truly significant revision since iOS 8’s initial release, Apple has introduced a number of welcomed features, improvements and bug fixes in the company’s latest 8.1 release, which supports the latest iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, especially the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and the upcoming iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, both of which are scheduled for release this week. As with every iOS 8 release, the vulnerabilities the Pangu team managed to exploit to achieve an Untethered jailbreak remain patched in 8.1, making it impossible for any device to jailbreak iOS 8.1 when employing the current Pangu tool. That being said, today’s news isn’t all bad, far from it. For more on the latest iOS 8.1 firmware and the next jailbreak, continue reading past the customary break!

iOS 8.1 Released – Can I Jailbreak 8.1 And The iPhone 6 Plus Untethered?

As confirmed by iOS 8.1’s release notes, in addition to offering a plethora of changes, the firmware comes bearing a revised build number over 8.0.2.

In addition to correcting a number of bugs, as solidified by both 8.1 beta 1 and beta 2, the updated public 8.1 release rectifies a complication with bluetooth devices, adds public support for the iCloud Photo Library beta (the feature that allows users to store their photo library in its entirety in iCloud), SMS forwarding that enables Macs with OS X Yosemite and iPads with 8.1 to send and receive SMS and MMS messages (provided the user has an iPhone), intelligent tethering via Instant Hotspot with Yosemite and, most importantly, Apple Pay!

iOS 8.1 Released As Jailbreak Development Progresses

Although 8.1 adds a wide array of features, it’s recommended that all who are currently jailbroken on any firmware from iOS 7 through 7.1.2 avoid the latest iOS 8.1 release.

Hypothetically speaking, if an update were performed on a jailbroken device it would result in the loss of said device’s jailbreak, effectively making it impossible to jailbreak until a new utility is released, as it’s also impossible to downgrade from 8.1 to 7.1.2 (the latest firmware still supported by the Pangu Jailbreak).

Should I Update To iOS 8.1 Knowing I want To Jailbreak?

As mentioned above, if your device is currently jailbroken on 7.x, avoid updating to iOS 8.1 like the plague until a new tool is released – provided you care more about your jailbreak than the new features iOS 8.x brings to the table that is.

However, if you’re currently on iOS 8.0 through 8.0.2, by all means, feel free to update to 8.1, it won’t affect your future ability to jailbreak as the next utility will jailbreak 8.1, in addition to the 8.0.x firmwares that preceded it.

Apple’s iOS 8.1 Firmware And The Future Of Jailbreaking!

Now, let’s briefly discuss what we know about the future of jailbrekaing and the next public iOS 8 jailbreak. Essentially, in addition to the evad3rs (the longstanding dev team on the jailbreak scene responsible for the first Untethered iOS 6 and iOS 7 jailbreaks, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively), the new Pangu Team is also working hard to develop a new tool of their own.

As of now, like with years past, both teams are likely in the late vulnerability discovery and exploitation stages. Remember, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released about a month ago, iOS 8.1 (the first true significant 8.x update) was just issued today and the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 will be available later this week.

While all the pieces of the puzzle are undeniably falling into place, the last being the iPad Air 2 and its all new A8X CPU, which differs over even that of the A8 chip found in the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, the teams will require additional time for fine tuning and testing.

We’ll have complete details and updates pertaining to how today’s 8.1 release will play into the next jailbreak in the days and weeks to come – stay tuned and lock your browsers to Evasi0n Jailbreak.

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak On 7.1.2

Pre iOS 8.1 Jailbreak 8.0.2 Pangu or Evasi0n Utility: How To Maintain Your Jailbreak on 7.1.2 – Today, like with each day following iOS 8’s initial release, we find ourselves closer to the mobile liberation that will inevitably come in the form of an iOS 8.0.2 UnTethered jailbreak. As detailed in preceding articles, not only are the evad3rs (the ingenious team of hackers behind the creation of the first iOS 6 and iOS 8 UnTethered jailbreak utilities, evasi0n and evasi0n7 respectively) working diligently to discover new vulnerabilities, but the newest jailbreakers on the scene are also racing for a release: Pangu. Furthermore, with Pangu financed by a third-party Chinese company with monetary interests in jailbreaking, Pangu may very well be the first to issue an iOS 8 jailbreak for 8.0.2 and 8.1. However, that’s not exactly the focal point of today’s article – regardless of what anyone may say, the past is still very much a part of the present. Each day following Apple’s release of iOS 8, which in turn patched Pangu, we received a number of questions related to the tool’s functionality; not so much whether Pangu can jailbreak 8.0.2, but whether it still supports 7.1.2 ensuing the aforementioned patch.

Pre 8.0.2 Jailbreak 8.1 Utility – How To Maintain Your Jailbreak

In addition to recognizing the blatantly obvious future of jailbreaking that is iOS 8, it’s important to pay homage to the incredible tools that paved the way for the forthcoming iOS 8 jailbreak 8.1 and 8.0.2 utility.

That being said, we’re here today to provide an answer to the following question: “can Pangu still jailbreak 7.1.2 fully Untethered on all devices?”

iOS 8.1 And 8.0.2 Jailbreak In The Works, But What About Pangu For 7.1.2?

Thankfully, the answer to the above question is a definite ‘yes’! For those of you who are newcomers to the incredible world of jailbreaking, first of all, welcome! Secondly, it’s important to realize that when a new jailbreak-patching firmware is released, the latest jailbreak will continue to function on the supported firmware(s) for eternity, provided you avoid said jailbreak-patching firmware update.

Moreover, once an update to a firmware that isn’t supported by the latest jailbreak tool(s) is carried out, in this case iOS 8.0 through 8.0.2, once the signing window closes (it already has), it’s impossible to downgrade to the latest firmware that’s still supported by the jailbreak utility, in this case 7.1.2.

If you upgrade from iOS 7 to 8.0.2, you will effectively forfeit your ability to jailbreak using either evasi0n 7 for 7.0 through 7.0.6 or Pangu to jailbreak 7.1 through 7.1.2. Having said that, if you happen to own a device on any iOS 7 firmware, again, it’s not too late to jailbreak fully UnTethered – follow either our evasi0n 7 guide for lower 7.0.x firmwares or our Pangu tutorial to jailbreak 7.1.x.

iOS 8.1 Jailbreak Looms On The Horizon, Jailbreak 7.x Today

As for the next Untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 through 8.1, such a utility is contingent upon not only the release of the latter, but also that of the new iPad models, being the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. Thankfully, both of the new iPads are scheduled to be unveiled in just two short days during a special media event Apple has planned (additional details available on Best Tech Info).

Finally, we’ll have additional coverage on not only iOS 8.1 and the latest iPad models, but also the development of the Untethered iOS 8 jailbreak 8.1 utility in the days and weeks to come; stay tuned for more information and keep your browsers locked to Evasi0n Jailbreak.
