        So they burned ANOTHER exploit with this? I was fine with one but two?

      • pangujb

        looks like it’s true, but i think they will find new exploit always 🙂

  • leart

    New version of pangu is out, this is getting wired , they used new vulnerabilities

  • Matt Dowdy

    I’m coming back to iOS this week after using android for around 18 months and it’s the new additions to ios8 that have tempted me back, I went to android because of the swipe keyboard and the voice activation of assistants mainly and I’ve just installed ios8 on an iPod and although it’s a little buggy at the moment as is to be expected in really impressed with the newest additions, my dilemma though is do I keep my new iPhone on 7.1.1 and jailbreak it as I have always done in the past or do I put ios8 on it and enjoy all of the features that I’m coming back for?! It’s very nice to know that I have the choice though thanks to the pangu team regardless of weekday exploits they have burned to achieve it, I do know that when ios8 is released I don’t think I will be jailbreaking anymore as everything I used to do it for in the past has now been implemented by apple and the direction they are going in will only make iOS better for all of us

      Jailbreak lol that’s my opinion about that always. If iOS8 is the same why risk missing a new ultimate tweak that might come out. There’s a lot of tweaks I still love even with the new additions to iOS8 Just hope these new Jailbreakers can be trusted. Everyone is saying they can be.
