Pangu 7.1.1 Jailbreak For iOS 7.1.x: Is Pangu Safe, Will There Be An Evasi0n 7.1.1 Tool, Can I Change My Date And Other Questions - Pangu, a strange and interesting name that was virtually unheard of amongst members of the jailbreak community until yesterday. Now however, the name is quickly rising in prominence and recognition following an “out-of-the-blue” (as MuscleNerd put it) release of the Pangu jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered utility from the new Chinese Pangu Dev Team. While many have questioned the authenticity of the new and unfamiliar team that operates under the Pangu moniker, we’re here to set the record straight regarding the all-new Pangu iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models and clarify current misconceptions. As a precursor, it’s paramount to mention that Pangu remains the only Untethered jailbreak 7.1.1solution for all iDevices, including the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4S, 4, iPad Air, Mini 2, iPad 4, 3 and the 5th generation iPod touch.
Is Pangu Safe To Use And Can I Jailbreak 7.1.1 UnTethered?
Simply stated, yes, Pangu issafe. While there have been questions pertaining to the tool’s authenticity and origin, we’ll highlight all areas of concern in today’s explanatory post – please reserve your questions until after reading all of our key points.
MuscleNerd of the evad3rs, Saurik (the creator of Cydia), i0n1c, iH8Sn0w and iCrackUriDevice, as well as the staff of Jailbreak Pangu (formerly Jailbreak Evasi0n Info) have all confirmed the legitimacy of Pangu and have verified that the tool is safe.
Where does Pangu come from and who Developed it?
Pangu was created by a group of Chinese hackers that go by the same name as the utility: the Pangu Team.
The group of iOS hackers were hired by a third-party Chinese company that offered to pay Pangu an undisclosed sum of money to create a new Untethered jailbreak for 7.1.1 and bundle somewhat questionable software with it. However, said software can be opted out of prior to the install, which is actually what we recommended doing in our detailed Pangu jailbreak tutorial.
Why do I need to set the Date to June 2nd and What’s the Certificate Pangu installs?
Both of these commonly asked questions can be answered simultaneously when knowing how Pangu works. Essentially, instead of burning through valuable exploits for the initial execution of unsigned code to exploit iOS 7.1.1, Pangu makes use of an Enterprise Developer account from Apple, which requires theinstallation of certificates.
As for why it’s required to roll the date back when jailbreaking with Pangu, for the same reason a similar process is required when installing GBA4iOS. Due to the fact that Apple doesn’t sanction the use of Developer certificates for the purpose of jailbreaking, the company has revoked the distribution privileges of the Developer account that generated the certificates. In light of that fact, setting the date back to June 2nd, a time when the Developer account still possessed distribution privileges, is required to actually make use of the certificates and allow the jailbreak to function properly.
Can I change my device’s Settings to reflect the current Date after Jailbreaking with Pangu?
Yes, once jailbroken on iOS 7.1.1, you may return your device to the current date. In fact, following the final reboot in the jailbreak process, Pangu should revert the date Settings on 7.1.x automatically.
Will the Evad3rs Update Evasi0n? I think I’ll wait until they Release Evasion 7.1.1
Unfortunately, that’s not a possibility. The evad3rs won’t update evasi0n to jailbreak 7.1.1 – in fact, they can’t. When Apple released iOS 7.1 to the public, the company effectively patched the key iOS vulnerabilities that evasi0n exploited to achieve an UnTethered jailbreak on iOS 7.0 through 7.0.6. That, in conjunction with the fact that Pangu utilizes a Developer Enterprise cert (certificate) are the contributing factors in why the evad3rs cannot simply reverse engineer Pangu to update evasi0n for iOS 7.1.1
While the evad3rs are bound by the US law in relation to iOS and the use of Enterprise accounts for the execution of unsigned code, the Pangu team presumably reside outside the jurisdiction of the any such restrictions.
Pangu is in Chinese, I can’t understand it – Is there an English version of Pangu?
No, as of now, the interface for Pangu 1.0 is exclusively written in Chinese. However, our in-depth tutorial, which is linked to both above and below, contains not only fool-proof instructions to successfully jailbreak 7.1.1, but also a step-by-step video explantation.
What’s the Jailbreak Process like, is it Easy enough to use Pangu to Jailbreak 7.1.1?
Surprisingly, it’s a breeze to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Pangu – it’s a relatively painless process and devices jailbroken via Pangu remain extremely responsive.
