Pangu windows ios 8 jailbreak

It seems that not a day goes by without the Pangu Team or saurik releasing an update of some sort for their respective tools. Today, the Pangu Team announced the release of Pangu 1.2.0, an update that brings yet another round of fixes for the iOS 8 jailbreak tool.

As a matter of fact, Pangu 1.2.0 bundles a few improvements that had already been released via the untether package available in Cydia that was updated over the weekend.

Other improvements brought to Pangu aim to optimize the overall jailbreak process when using the tool, as well as support for the restore function for iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.

The full change log reads:

1. Fix the issue that launchd may drain cpu on 32bit devices.

2. Fix Safari reloading bug and occasionally crash problem.

3. Optimize jailbreak process.

4. Restore function now support iPad Air2/iPad Mini3.

Obviously, if your jailbroken device is behaving as it should, you don’t have anything to do at this time. If you’re still experiencing issues, specifically those related to CPU usage and/or Safari, it might be a wise thing to head over to Cydia and update the untether package. As a last resort, you may have to consider restoring your device and using the latest version of Pangu to jailbreak again.

    Awesome news, thanks iDb for bringing us the news, Pangu team and Saurik for maturing this jb so quickly 🙂

  • Tommy Gumbs

    So glad I am leaving my devices alone. After years of JB’ing it’s nice not worrying about it any longer.

    • iPhoner


    • Anthony Antunez

      Especially with how unstable this one seems to be. There’s like a new article everyday with some fix. Might as well call it a jailbreak beta rofl.

      • Tommy Gumbs

        They have been getting more unstable with each release for a while now. I agree with you!

      • Brent Shelton

        No question they rushed 1.0 and there have been a bunch of updates, but I’ve been running it for a week with a few tweaks on iPhone 6 and it hasn’t crashed or done a respring a single time. Running very smoothly. Guessing the issues are with the older devices.

      • Kieran.Lillis

        I think they are. On my iPod Touch 5th Gen I got the Safari reloading bug on practically every website I went to. It also randomly decided to respring every 10 minutes, so I had to restore. But iOS 8 was already a bit laggy so it’s no surprise.

      • mrgerbik

        Nope to all older devices…
        Iphone 5 here with many tweaks installed running awhile now with zero issues (that i know of).

      • Brandon Angle

        Have not had one issue and I jailbroke on the first day. All depends on one’s skill and experience.

    • Evan Moore

      If only apple would enable nested folders then I probably wouldn’t jailbreak my devices. (I am aware of the trick to create nested folders without jailbreaking). It’s once I have the nested folder feature enabled them my appetite is open to try other pieces on the menu.

      • Der Faust

        if they would freakin allow us to add more than 9 apps to a folder…….

      • Xtrendence

        They allow us to add more than 5-6 pages of apps, each page 9 apps to a folder. What’s your point? If you mean a folder that you scroll down to see the other apps then yes, that would be a better feature than swiping through pages.

      • Der Faust

        We should be able to add more than 9;)….there’s room for 2 or 3 more rows:)

    • rockdude094

      Jailbreaking is still the best.. idc

      • Tommy Gumbs

        It’s really not. And with Credit cards and finger prints on my phone I’ll pass.

    • Joe Johnston

      Its easy.

    • Joe Johnston

      2 Ipads, 2 Ipad minis, 2 Iphone 4s, 1 Iphone 5, and 1 Iphone 5s flawless jailbreak

  • Might want to do this asap if your on anything other then 8.1 It’s been confirmed 8.1.1 does in fact patch the jailbreak.

  • Sandro Michailidis

    If you are already jailbroken , can you just update the pangu in Cydia or is it not needed ?

    • NeftyCorrea

      You update with the 0.4 untether pangu update in Cydia but if your not jail broken yet they updated the tool

    • pegger1

      If you’re already jailbroken and aren’t having problems, then you shouldn’t do anything.
      If you are having issues, then go in to Cydia update the necessary components.

  • Eni

    before jailbreaking my phone was acting normal (5s), but after i jailbroke it i had battery drai like 10% in 2min. so i restored my phone and i still have this problem kind of, not like with jailbreak but less, the phone overheats an consumes alot of battery even on normal use. any idea?

    • Abdullah Safdar

      There is a problem with your iphone then. Consult it to apple retail stores…

      • Eni

        not an official apple store in my country yet, i guess i have to change it by my self

    • Sounds like a battery issue, I’d go to an apple store and have them do a test on it.

      • Eni

        not an official apple store in my country yet, i guess i have to change it by my self.

    • diggitydang

      When you restore, try to Erase All Content and Settings… I always do that before restoring again to make sure it’s a totally clean install… just a plain “Restore”, I found sometimes kept settings like iCloud info, WIFI info etc.

  • James G

    Hope a Mac version comes before 8.1.1 hits.

    • pegger1

      You don’t need to wait for the Mac version to update to 8.1, and then jailbreak later.

      • James G

        I am on 8.1 on my iPhone 6. But I don’t want to mess about with a VM to get the jailbreak. If I’m going to go through the hassle of restoring my phone; I’d rather just get it all done on Mac. But I guess my options are getting limited if 8.1.1 comes soon.

    • sousou

      update to ios8 then wait for jailbreak on mac dont loses the option to upgrad or jailbreak

  • iltas

    can i update to 7.1.2 to 8.1 in my ip5 is ios 8.1 safe

    • pegger1

      Yes, iOS 8.1 is safe. But if you plan on jailbreaking, you’re better off doing a restore to 8.1. Be sure to do a backup first.

      • iltas

        thnx bro can u tell me some of my favte tweaks call bar springtomize and Auxo 2

        updated tweak bro plz

  • Matthew

    Okay, very very important question. I have a 5s. I’ve jailbroken about 6 times across all the different versions of Pangu. And each time, I have the issue of not being able to restart my phone, without it being stuck on the boot logo after I’ve jailbroken. I’m then forced to restore my phone and wipe the jailbreak. It is extremely aggravating. Does anyone at all have any info on this or have been experiencing the same problem? Is there a fix? Is this something that is solved with this new version of Pangu? Should I even bothering trying at this point?

    • pegger1

      If you’ve already updated the Untether through Cydia, I don’t think you’re going to gain anything from this update.

      • Matthew

        I figured it ouuuuuuut!!!!!!!!!! So excited 🙂

      • David

        I have same problem. How did you fix this?

  • WatchTheThrone

    Waiting for the OSX version….

    • Bugs Bunnay

      waiting for Linux version…

  • Yazdan Khazeni

    Open VPN has crash!!!
    I can’t use it after Jb
    I restored my iphone 5s again :~|

    • DDriggs00

      I had the same problem

  • HeavyComponent

    Went into Cydia and nothing is prompt for an update.

  • noracuts

    This JB isn’t working on my iPhone 5. I’ve tried it every time they release a new build. It jailbreaks successfully and then I restore my data and my phone will not reboot. Reminds me of a old Tethered JB. Never had any issues with any of the older jailbreak tools dating back to ios 3.

    I’m not sure if i should give this one a try

    • Brian Nguyen

      did you open Cydia before restoring from backup?

      • noracuts

        Yes. Is that the issue?
        I should JB then restore my data, then open cydia?

      • Brian Nguyen


      • noracuts

        It worked!
        Thanks for your help

      • mrgerbik

        If you do open cydia before backup restore, just make sure to reinstall it

  • Divyanshu Rathi

    The only think that’s holding me off to move to iOS 8 is “Auxo” , Come on update it already !

  • Saulo Benigno

    How to update the Pangu app? On my “about us” say it’s still version 1.0.0. Even after jailbreaking with Pangu 1.1.0

    • Rowan09

      You don’t need to update the app just go to installed from Cydia and update the untethered package.

      • HeavyComponent

        I’ve opened Cydia multiple times and no prompt update appears for Pangu.

      • Rowan09

        It won’t. You have to go to installed and then click on the pangu untethered packaged then reinstall it.

      • HeavyComponent

        Ah! Got you. Thanks!

      • Rowan09

        No problem.

      • Saulo Benigno

        Thank you

  • Yushinbe

    So far, updating to Pangu unTether 0.4 seems to have fixed the randomly respring problem and Safari crashes, some of us experienced on our iPhones 4S.

    Thank you Pangu Team and keep up the good work!

  • Yushinbe

    One irritating thing on my phone now is that all my apps seem to appear in german, even though Apps Store and iTunes show up in my countries native language. I checked my language and region/country selections as well, all of that seems correct.

    Anyone know how to solve this problem?

    • Sachka

      It happened to me aswell, Safari, Music and iTunes were in French but I had English set, I fixed it by restoring again, it seemed the previous restore didn’t reset everything.

  • Xee

    I recently updated Pangu 8.0-8.x untether v4.0. After a while I had no cellular data. I tried resetting network settings, toggling mobile data and airplane mode, rebooting and deleting vpn profiles. Nothing worked until I reinstalled the above.

    Just in case someone else has this problem.

  • Sachka

    Rushing this jailbreak like this wasn’t a good idea IMO, if 8.1.1 comes out and they decide to try to tweak their jb core again and they screw our current jb we won’t have a choice but to lose it. -.- we didn’t even need a jb core update before, we could semirestore and stuff…

  • Caleb

    after jailbreaking whenever I try to install an app from the app store my phone goes into safemode. Does anyone have the same problem? and How do I fix it?

  • HamptonWalley

    Again something, I wonder how many things the jailbrakes are broking. I will not jailbrake again, ever.

  • Tim

    I just jailbroke my iPhone 5s using this latest version of pangu from a clean restore and my fone is heating up. I literally just witnessed my battery drop by 3% as I am typing this. Help!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Tim

      It turns out the drain is just caused by iOS 8.1. I have restored a couple of times and a clean iOS still drains the battery, standby times are perfect though.

  • Todd Young

    Pretty sad how bug ridden and rushed this jaailbreak release was… the Pangu team would have been much better off to have completed extensive internal testing and with developers. Instead, the JB window is rapidly drawing to a close with Apple having the latest maintenance patch in beta, with what appears to be a still an unstable JB after numerous versions released.

    Here’s hoping the bugs are worked out before Apple stops signing 8.1.

  • Tom

    How do i install Appsync (compatible for iOS 8)?

    Which Repo on Cydia? And do Appcake/Appaddict/vShare work?

  • Abe Villa

    anyone else besides me experiencing battery drain issues on the iPhone 6? thinking about doing a full restore with the 8.1 ipsw

  • Brandon S

    Has anyone tried using the restore tab in the pangu tool? Would it be possible to downgrade from IOS 8?

  • qiang

    not sure if this is an official issue after jailbreaking with Pangu 1.2.0 (Ipad 3 Wifi) seems to be stuck in a boot loop forever. Tried the light sensor method and doesn’t work. Anyone facing similar issues? :/

    • qiang

      Sorry, it’s not a boot loop issue. Its more to the extent of not booting at all. On pressing the power button it just shows the apple logo for awhile and stops.

  • Kevin Rauseo II

    so after i restore from backup, i make sure find my iPhone and passcode are off before opening cydia or pang correct? wait, which do i open first pang or cydia?

  • Guest

    o if I have already jailbroken my phone with version 1.1, do I have to restore my phone and re-jailbreak my phone with version 1.2 for best results? Is it recommended? I know that it is not needed and I know the Cydia untether update fixes a lot of the problems but should I have to restore my phone again and re-jailbreak with 1.2 for new improvements that are within the jailbreaking tool process?

  • Reasonable

  • Is it completely safe that during a reboot sometimes Apple logo appear and disappear upto 3 times and then device boots successfully…

  • Reasonable

    Do I have to restore and re-jailbreak my phone with the new Pangu 1.2 app? Or am I fine staying jailbroken with the Pangu 1.1 tool

  • Reasonable

    I used Pangu 1.1 to jailbreak my phone. Do I/should I have to restore and re-jailbreak my phone with the new Pangu 1.2 app or am I fine staying jailbroken on the old one?

  • Kenny Verbestel

    When i put my charge cable into my iphone i dont get the loading message nor the lightning bolt next to the battery.
