    people should avoid this mess… A lot of tweaks are not working (girdlock 2, lockinfo, nitrous, biolockdown, cootoggles crashes in certain cases)

    regretting this move

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      In the change log of these tweaks do you see ‘Support for iOS 7.1.1’? If not there’s your problem. Give developers a chance to update their tweaks before complaining that they don’t work since before this jailbreak the only device jailbreakable on iOS 7.1.1 was the iPhone 4…

      • El Matador

        Couldn’t have said it any better Aidan, It’s been less then 24 hours and we have people acting like this jailbreak has been out for 7 months! In case anyone is wondering Auki has already been updated!

      • Dan

        in fact I do not, did I ever say they did? did I accuse the tweak developers?

        I am saying that people should avoid it for now. You know, in case people take a chance and are disappointed like I am afterwards.

      • Bellthane

        Yeah. But you do not need to be a genius to see that one coming, don’t you? 🙂 Just wait…

      • Dan

        I honestly didn’t think it would be that bad for tweaks, when I updated my iPad from 7. something to 7.0.6 everything kept working. Anyhow, no doubt it will be fixed, but imo it’s better to wait right now.

      • Montgomery Tyler

        I think its good for people that lost there jailbreak and been stuck without it

      • Kurt

        It’s good that people got stuck on stock iOS? What a cruel thing to say :-o. Uff those poor poor people.

      • Montgomery Tyler

        no it’s not. It’s a good thing this jailbreak came out for the people stuck on stock IOS. Now they can have the freedom.

    • Velocus

      Works fine. Lost of apps work with this JB. Lockinfo7 is working. No crashes.

      • Dan

        I’ve since found it auxo 2 was making lockinfo crash

  • workin

    Looking a gift horse in the mouth? ..btw Amazon don’t ship Canada electronics….maybe should buy more books ;P

  • iOops

    The Jailbreak works just fine on my 5s. (iWidget, themes, et’all).

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    I dont know if its just me but I have a slight feeling we’ll be getting an iOS 8 jailbreak a lot sooner than we think. Not now, but I mean like maybe November/December range. Seems like people are working on these things in secret and then BAM! @JeffBenjam:disqus what do you think? Its def possible.

  • Leever

    Joe sounds like Sebastian + Cody.

    • Joe Rossignol

      Well I am French-Canadian, so it might make sense.

  • pedro caban

    finally a 5s 7.1.1 jailbreak 100% working, thank you

  • Chris Gilmore

    I like Joe!!! Keep him in the future podcasts! Great job man. Welcome!

    • Joe Rossignol

      Thanks! It was a pretty last minute podcast, so I hope to be a lot better if I’m on again.

  • Chris Gilmore

    Right now I updated my iPhone 5s to iOS 8 Beta 2. I figured I’d do that and then when 7.1.2 comes out, i’d downgrade and JB both my 5s and Air and just go from there.

  • eduardo vazquez

    I think is ok did my iPad and iPhone works well plus 7.1.1 fixed a lot of bugs

  • weztimonial

    yay Joe!

  • johnny B

    To be honest I cannot fault pangu jailbreak, It works on all my idevices , the people who don’t like it then don’t use it. You will get the odd bugs but its a how new jailbreak give them a chance there will be fixes. 10/10 to the pangu team for doing a good job

  • Yariv Amosi

    I have iPhone 4 running iOS 7.1.1, I start the jailbreak but it stuck in the middle with ????? In red color.
    I did same like the video.

    • Singh Navi

      just restore ur phone as new and then try it will work…

  • I’m Chinese and I can understand all the instructions on the pangu (盘古) tool, but I’m not going to update to ios 7.1.1 since I have a lot of good tweaks on my ios 7.0.4
