Pangu Cydia featured

There you have it, folks. As we reported just an hour ago, the Pangu jailbreak with Cydia installer was imminent. Now it appears that Pangu has flipped the switch on the update, and added the Cydia installer, which installs the latest awesome version of Cydia, directly to the Pangu jailbreak package.

This now means it’s possible to jailbreak iOS 8 and install Cydia without resorting to any confusing SSH or terminal commands. Have at it…

Now all you need to do to get Cydia on your iOS device is jailbreak with Pangu, and install Cydia from the Pangu app. Easy peezy.

The last thing we need now is a Mac version of Pangu, and after that, all bases will be covered.

Sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.

  • Sean Keenan

    Thank god
    Manually installing cydia wasn’t worth it to time consuming

  • E.j. Barker

    If you get stuck in a boot loop (Apple logo), reboot and hold the Volume Up button and it should boot normal from there, then you’ll have the Pangu app icon… this is what happened with me (iPad Air 8.1 LTE)

  • dave

    Now all we need is for purchases for IOS 8 devices to be turned on in Cydia. Been waiting to upgrade TetherMe for days now, and I have no devices with 7 (as suggested by the developer) to purchase on, and then update on the IOS 8 device.

  • Joonyaboy

    My 6 is ready, my Mac is not

  • Ian

    Do i have to restore my 6+ for the jailbreak to work?

    • If you didn’t OTA on a previous install you should be ok. But if you did, then you really should restore first.

      • Ian

        Ok thanks.

  • JayDee917

    Is it normal for the pangu installer to be downloading like 100 different things? It’s on 2/6 and it seems like its been downloading file after file?

    • Yes, takes a little bit to download. A couple different files and it sits on 2/6 for a bit.

      • JayDee917

        It’s been like 15 minutes, and I have a pretty fast connection. It’s downloaded a 153mb file a few times, then 135.4mb multiple times, then on to many other smaller file sizes.. I’m thinking it could be stuck on a loop..

      • hmm, guess that’s possible. It shouldn’t take that long to download them.

      • JayDee917

        Yeah it just crashed now. Got the “Pangu.exe has stopped working” error message with only an option to close the app. Trying again..

      • You’ll know the break is working when your phone goes to a restore screen. Hopefully it doesn’t glitch again.

      • Chris Buck

        Also try airplane mode on the iphone before hitting the blue button to install pangu. Speed it up for me.

      • That’s a great point Chris! 🙂

      • JayDee917

        I tried that first, it installed a pangu app placeholder (the white app icon with the grids and circles) and when I clicked it, nothing happened. Rebooted the iPhone, it still had the same placeholder icon but it was clickable, it would open pangu for like a half second, then close everytime.

      • Chris Buck

        I posted this further down:
        if you have a grid icon, I saw in a video on youtube a guy with that grid icon and he still was connected to the desktop pangu app via lightening cable and clicked on the icon and it made the blue progress bar finish and the pangu icon showed up then.

      • JayDee917

        I actually tried that, but it didn’t work for me. My latest attempt just ended in the “Pangu.exe has stopped working again” this time, however, it got to 4/6 then rebooted my iPhone, leaving me to hope it worked, but no Pangu still…

      • Your running pangu by right clicking and run as administrator correct?

      • pegger1

        You ensured find my phone and passcode/touch id were disabled?

      • Chris Buck

        I would try that free battery doctor app (has a orange-ish battery icon) in app store to clean the files then try again. Worked for me 4 times so far.

      • Try running Pangu.exe as Administrator

  • James

    I jailbroke yesterday and I said to myself “I bet there will be an update tomorrow which has Cydia bundled into the jailbreak” and sure enough, here it is -.-

  • [RΞCØИ1]

    Wonder if you’ll still have to disable Find my iPhone and passcode lock first

    • Yes you do, turn those off. Then install, once pangu app shows up you can turn them back on and install cydia.

      • [RΞCØИ1]

        Cool, thanks! I figured but just wanted to make sure before.

  • George Gabunia

    Heyy someone answer me … Can i set password on my fingerprint now? Or it’ll have some problems?

    • Walter White

      You can set one

  • Dev Shah

    Someone Please help me My iPhone has got stuck at the apple logo after “Restoring from Backup” after i had Jailbreoken Today suceesfully, The Recovery Mode is Not helping Through iTunes it pops up a window saying you must enter your passcode Please someone say what to do? :(((

    • Have you tried going into safe mode and connecting?

      • Dev Shah

        How to go into safe mode? I can’t access anything it shows only Apple Logo on the screen

      • Hold the up volume button when booting the device.

      • Dev Shah

        Holding only the power and up button is doing nothing, so hold on the power and home button for black screen the did what you told, Nothing Working, Jeff Somebody please Help me

      • Sorry man, usually that puts you into safe mode. Once it starts booting up holding the up volume should do it. 🙁

      • Dev Shah

        How long should i Hold only the volume Button? I Again tried to Jailbreak using Pangu But It got stuck in Between the Process…:'(

      • Usually if a jailbreak went through you should just hold the volume up as soon as the device starts up until it boots to the main home screen. Probably less then 45 seconds. But if you had an issue where stuff isn’t working at all you might have to bite the bullet and reinstall everything.

      • Dev Shah

        Here is The Deal: After Successfully Installing Cydia and Pangu along with Latest update from a fresh restore, I Setup My TouchID thenI tried to Restore From Backup, after Rebooting from That backup it got Stuck At Apple Logo, After So many attempts I Again tried to Jailbreak using Pangu as it was able to Recognise my Device But Again Got An Red Error.

      • Gavin

        I am experiencing the exact same problem. I think it probably has an issue with iCloud and Find my iPhone being enabled after a restore. Gonna try disabling iCloud after a restore and reboot to see if the problem continues. I am restoring at the moment….

      • Dev Shah

        How are you able to Restore? My iTunes Is not accepting my device unless I enter Passcode on the iPhone.

      • Gavin

        Did you try putting your phone in DFU mode and restoring

      • Dev Shah

        Ok Guys The Device is Going into Recovery Mode Showing Red iTunes icon on the iPhone, But iTunes Is Giving an error saying it cannot verify the software update because it is not connected to the Internet.
        Even Though it is Connected to The Store, Any1 Experiencing this Error on iTunes During Recovey mode?

      • Dev Shah

        Hey after Restoring via Recovery Mode & following all the steps as per Jeff’s New Video , Finally Jailbroken, Thanks For all The HELP.!

      • Dev Shah

        Hey after Restoring via Recovery Mode & following all the steps as per Jeff’s New Video , Finally Jailbroken, Thanks For all The HELP.!!!

    • Chris Buck

      I would download the free desktop app Tiny Umbrella and connect phone to PC with that app open and see what it says and if you can exit DFU mode.

      • Dev Shah

        Hey after Restoring via Recovery Mode & following all the steps as per Jeff’s New Video , Finally Jailbroken, Thanks For all The HELP.! 🙂

  • Ozzie

    Downloaded movie box but I con does not show up . Anyone having this problem

    • I had to reboot my phone once I installed it. Then it showed up.

      • Ozzie

        Probably the easiest solution thank you. I was just too giddy to think

      • pegger1

        What version of Moviebox?

    • Walter White

      Its still a little bug that needs to be fixed. Uicache called. Just reboot your phone after you installed an app from cydia

  • Chocolope Jailbreakush

    Reading people having issues with Pangu make sure you uncheck that box son!

  • Blip dude

    iPhone 6 was successful, but the Jailbreak tool will not read my iPad Air 2, which based on what I read, Pangu can jailbreak.

  • Patrick Saucier

    does iam the only one who get stuck in part 2/6 with pangu ? …..i dont know why my passcode is disable also find my iphone … and nothing work after part 2/6 nothing move anymore …

  • DaVreD

    Im on 7.0.6 did a cydia update now it wont open ? any ideas how to get cydia back without restoring

  • DaVreD

    What a ball ache , just tried restoring to IOS8 , itunes gave me an error and now stuck in recovery mode

    • jebelius

      same thing here

  • jebelius

    any one getting error 14 while restoring to ios 8.1

    • DaVreD

      Tried restoring on two different computers errors both times ,effing pain in the arse apple

      • jebelius

        yep tried mac windows no luck yet

      • Chris Buck

        Got that on my mac and then went to PC and same thing so disabled firewall and tried again and worked for me last week. Apple must communicate with server to verify 2 times it seems.

      • jebelius

        disabled windows firewall still error 14

      • jebelius

        did you use itunes restore or ispw from some other wepsite

      • jebelius

        i got it try and use some ones phone as a hotspot or different internet… i got it using my gf phone as a hotspot :=)

    • Ozzie

      Update your iTunes and it should do the trick

      • jebelius

        i have the newest version of itunes

      • Ozzie

        Hmm it that solved the issue for me.

      • jebelius

        also gettin the ios corrupt file error when using itunes to download the file

      • Chris Buck

        Download the 8.1 for your phone from getios dot com
        It is just a server with the installs on it and for me downloads faster. 1.7GB for iPhone 5 and 1.9GB for iPhone 6 (8.1).
        Then, in itunes, connect iPhone then on PC press Shift key while clicking on Restore in itunes…this will allow you to choose the file that you just downloaded.

      • jebelius

        thats what im doing rifgt now and already had one file from this site too

      • jebelius

        now the iPhone restore bar moved to halfway and then error 14

      • Chris Buck

        Yes, you want most recent itunes. Also, on apple support site, says try different usb slots on computer first. But others searches says it is an error with the ipsw file. I downloaded my 8.1 file to have it handy and in my documents folder from getios dot com

  • Him

    was the loop issue fixed?

  • Jonathan Amaral

    anyone know how to get ride of that PP app?

    • Chris Buck

      I deleted from within cydia app on the installed tab. It still showed up until a respring then it will be removed.

  • TonyVee73

    Does Springtomize work on iOS 8?

  • VictorMartino

    I really hope they release the Mac version too.

  • vihpreti

    Worked here! Jailbroken on iPhone 5 + iOS 8.1 with iTunes backup restored before pangu!

  • Tim Cooked

    I didn’t bother restoring, jb’d right over what I had a few hours ago. So far everything working. No reboot/safari/mms/storage/store issues I previously had when this jb first came out.

  • riazbapoo

    so what are the must have tweaks to install … besides UntetheredHeySiri?

    • Chris Buck

      These are mine..see image

      • riazbapoo

        thank you kind sir. extremely useful list you have there

    • Rodolfo Aguiar

      Tage, Swipeselection Pro and NoSlowAnimations.

  • Decio Arruda

    Windows only :P….
    Why?!?

  • R u serious with me bruh!

  • Mike Ford

    I tried installing a few apps through cydia such as unlimtones and pandora downloader. They aren’t installing on my home screen. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    • Liam

      reboot your device & they should appear on your home screen

      • Mike Ford

        Thank you that worked!!

  • I’m still debating if I should jailbreak my iPhone or wait for a bit. Does passcode work again? And have the random boot loops been fixed?

    • Liam

      passcode now works & boot loop bug has been fixed

      • Oh okay. Is the Pangu app in English now?

      • Liam

        not yet

      • pegger1

        Does it matter what language?
        It has one checkbox you uncheck.
        And one button you click.
        Even if you run into issues, the app in English won’t help. Just follow the instructions from idownloadblog

  • Mike Ford

    Its an iPhone 6 plus running iOS 8.1

  • Jason Baroni

    Can anybody help me with these errors? I cant even download Cydia, neither OpenSSH files…

    • pegger1

      You don’t need to do OpenSSH anymore. You install Cydia from the Pangu app.

      • Jason Baroni

        I figured, but I also can’t install Cydia… One of the errors above tell I have errors on cydia translations installing

  • The second I find a reason to JB I will.

  • Kev123

    Can anyone help me with this ?

  • Abe Villa

    I know no one cares about your hardware. (Typed this come from MBPR 15″ 16GR, 512SSD, and re-read it on my iPhone 6 128gb silver.)

  • Ashish Maheshwari

    Does Cydia come bundled with the jailbreak now? Or do we have to install it separately after jailbreaking?

    • pegger1

      It’s sort of bundled, it’s not installed automatically, you install it through the Pangu app.

  • chris

    China, our new master!!!

    • pegger1

      New? China has owned the US for a while now.

  • Macy Palacio

  • Josh Venegas

    Why doesn’t everyone just use winebottler instead of making a virtual machine?

    • Chris

      An virtual machine guarantees success, wine doesn’t.

  • urrl

    My iP6 Plus wouldn’t stop ringing when someone called. I am not seeing anything updated for iOS8 worth downloading from Cydia as of yet. I am in the process of unjailbreaking and waiting till there is a more stable version.

  • Kavon Lewis
