Pangu Untethered iOS 7.1.1 Jailbreak for Mac Download Released


Five days ago a team of Chinese hackers known as Pangu released an untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak that was only available for Windows. Today, the team has released the same tool for Mac OS X, but also changed up a few things in the update, along with adding support for English:

Update Description 1.1.0
Added English support.
Optimized the file size.
Fixed the boot loop bug.
Using new info leak bug instead of @i0n1c’s.
Added online self verification.

The Pangu team’s untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak was achieved by using exploits detailed by Stefan Esser (@i0n1c) as part of a training course, which the latter was not too happy about.

Today’s Mac release removes @i0n1c’s exploits and utilizes other ones, which apparently the Pangu team purchased. These exploits were unnecessarily ‘burned’ in this minor update (instead of saving them for iOS 7.1.2), meaning Apple sees them and can patch them in the next iOS update.

However, @i0n1c says the exploit still uses his name and some of his jailbreak functions in the code.

According to MuscleNerd, the jailbreak utilizes expired enterprise certificates, which the hacker says the iPhone Dev Team avoids “for legal reasons”:

The Pangu jailbreak originally came bundled with a pirated Chinese App Store which was removed in this update. If you’re desperate for an untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, Pangu looks to be the solution for you. But of course, jailbreaking comes with risks so use this Chinese software with caution.

    What a bunch of idiots! Needlessly burning exploits.

    Well there goes any future jailbreaks on future iOS’s (namely iOS 8 once it releases).

    not necessarily, especially when they are using expired certificates (old exploit that has not longevity). Now some of the other exploits they burned, could be a problem, a sign of inexperience and goes with the general short term mentality. Even if I planned to JB wouldn’t touch this one at all, its crap like this that threatens the security of IOS and, up until now, pretty secure JB. Muscle and ionic, don’t seem all to worried, it just might take longer to get a trusted iOS 8 JB. seriously I wouldn’t touch anything that wasn’t given the thumbs up by Dev.
