How to jailbreak iOS 7.1.x with Pangu 1.1 on Windows [video]

Pangu 1.1

The highly anticipated Pangu 1.1 update was just today released for both Windows and Mac users. Obviously, the big news here was Mac compatibility, as Mac users were left without a usable version after the initial Windows-only version of Pangu 1.1 was released.

But Windows users should be happy too, as version 1.1 of Pangu brings with it English text that makes it easier to follow along in the jailbreak process. The update also gets rid of the nefarious checkbox that allowed pirated software to be easily installed on your device.

Pangu 1.1 is a streamlined version of the original tool. If you’ve been on the fence about using it, then perhaps this latest update will ease your concerns. Check inside to view our step-by-step jailbreak tutorial for Pangu 1.1 on Windows.

    I have an iPhone 4s with iOS 7.1.1. I broke my lock button a while ago and the only way to turn my phone on once it is off is by connected it to a power source and charging it for a second or two. If I jailbreak it with this, will it still turn on when connected to a charge?

    PLEASE HELP !!! I have tried the Pangu download at least 20 times on windows 7 & my iPhone 4 (waiting desperately for 6!) 7.1.2. The last 4 times all seems to go well until it says in red “jailbreak timeout” before my iphone finishes rebooting (No password on it). Your video is great but I can’t get past the timeout problem. I didn’t get the Cydia app but I got a “Repo Cydia” app – it’s red & I can’t get to the end where it says I’m jailbroken. :(
    P.S. Before I found this site I found Jailbreakmenow . com & paid $39.95 to be a “member” & get this same Pangu download (I know – very stupid!) – but they promised 24/7 support which I can’t find anywhere to access their “help” – & their YouTube video has even been removed.
