The moment we’ve been all waiting for is almost here!! Almost? Yes, the iOS 8 and 8.1 jailbreak is here, thanks to the pangu team, but has limited use as it doesn’t install Cydia yet. We have a lot to say about this release, but will brief it up in points:
Firstly, the link for the download of the tool was only available for a brief time as it was pulled off as it was a bit buggy, but its back now. However, its only available for windows at the moment. Will be available for mac soon
Before you get too excited, you should know that it is a limited jailbreak, as it lacks Cydia. This is due to the fact that cydia is yet to be made compatible with iOS 8 and 8.1. The good news is that Saurik, the creator cydia, is already on it.
Why has this jailbreak been released then? The benefit it has is, that it gives tweak developers to update their software. It enables SSH access to the developers to try out their tweaks.

Before you go for this jailbreak, make sure to backup your device. It is recommended to restore to iOS 8 or 8.1 as it reduces the chance of errors. Also turn off Find My iPhone, which can be re-activated later.
I would advice average users to hold their horses as of now. This version of jailbreak is for development purposes. Further updates will be provided on the topic as their is progress.
People on iOS 7, loyal to the jailbreak and desperately waiting for the new jailbreak, its our time now!!
UPDATE: Pangu v1.0.1 released to fix bugs in th ios 8 jailbreak tool.
I will finally be updating my iPhone 5 to iOS 8 today and enjoy stock iOS for a few days until a proper version is released for iOS 8. If you still want to try the new jailbreak, head over to Pangu’s official website- pangu.io . The tool is very easy to use, just follow the instructions on the screen and you’re good to go.
