On Monday, Apple released iOS 8.1.1 to the public after being in beta for two weeks. The update, which includes bug fixes and performance improvements, also patches the Pangu jailbreak that worked with iOS 8.1.

iH8sn0w, well know for jailbreak tools such as P0sixspwn and Sn0wbreeze, has published a video showing a jailbroken iPad running iOS 8.1.1. He includes the following description below the YouTube video:

“Been working on this since last Friday with @XanderKitteh (really awesome dude). This uses some new research between the two of us (not bootrom related[aw ik], but not HFS either). Still only limited to working with 30pin devices due to no serial over lightning”

Currently, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 8.1.1 is limited to devices that are using the 30-pin dock connector. The only devices that currently work with the jailbreak are the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3. iH8sn0w has not yet given a timeframe as to when the jailbreak will be available to the public.

    Please Guys wait until A pple settles with iOS 8.x.x releases. As we all know apple already released IOS 8.2 beta so whoever is releasing a jailbreak for 8.1.1 should wait. Otherwise Apple will patch it again. Pangu, Evad3rs, iH8Snow are all very talented Devs but IMHO they all should stop this race of being the first to release a jailbreak and wait and defeat Apple in this Cat and Mouse game.

    Yeah wtf, don’t release the jailbreak now. So smart, yet so stupid.

    This guy Is known for not releasing any of his JB’s publically, so don’t count on one coming from him ever. Does nothing else but post videos, that’s it. Pangu team doesn’t do any of that BS, they just produce.

    Not going to happen. Do you really want to wait until July or so next year? That’s when iOS releases usually “settle”, before the next major iOS is released in the fall.
