PP Jailbreak for Mac

It is now possible to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 using a Mac, and this has been confirmed by iDownloadBlog. Up until this point, no Mac option existed for jailbreaking iOS 8.1.2, but that is no longer the case. A new tool entitled PP jailbreak for Mac has surfaced, allowing Mac users to enjoy what Windows users have been enjoying for some time now. Inside, we have a tutorial that shows how to jailbreak iOS 8.1.2 using OS X with the PP jailbreak for Mac.

Disclaimer: We’ve reached out to the normal people who comment about the safety of new jailbreak tools, but have yet to hear anything official from them. With this in mind, proceed with this jailbreak at your own risk.

Step 1: Restore your iPhone to iOS 8.1.2, and disable Find My iPhone, Passcode lock, and place your device into AirPlane mode.

Step 2: Ensure that your iPhone is connected directly to your Mac via USB cable

Step 3: Download the PP jailbreak for Mac tool and save it to your desktop

Step 4: Double click on the ppjailbreak.dmg on your desktop to mount the volume

Step 5: Drag the PP越狱.app file to the Applications folder

Step 6: Double click the PP越狱.app in the Applications folder to open it and make sure it recognizes your device

Step 7: Uncheck the pp checkmark box in the bottom left-hand corner.

Step 8: Click the jailbreak button in the middle of the screen

Step 9: Click the button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen on the next page

Step 10: Wait until the jailbreak process completes. You’ll see a green checkmark once the tool has finished running. Wait until your device reboots and you should see Cydia. Disable AirPlane mode and then open Cydia to finish the setup

I have been able to personally confirm that this tool works for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-iOS 8.1.x on Mac OS X. What about you? What has your experience been like thus far? Sound off down below in the comments.

    FYI, the first Pangu exploit included an app to allow pirated software to be installed. Is that racist too? FFS, get a grip. It morons like you that run around telling people how they should live and calling out “RACIST” when you don’t like what you’re hearing. Facts are just that. Facts. Now piss off and stop being a twat.

    I just got stuck in a boot-loop… Im guessing so, this is untethered, as long as that PP8.0-8.1 Untether package is installed?? I also rebooted my phone several times yesterday (I JBroke yesterday) and no such issue…. I also tried volume-up boot, no such luck. I restored, and tried again, (thank goodness for iCloud backup) and we’ll see what happens. Any ideas what may have caused this? (besides a rogue tweak)

  • Very nice, Yes %99 Safe 😛

    I used this method and now the mail and safari app keep crashing when I launch them.

    Any idea? Thanks.

    at last this came out… I did an iPhone 6 and had some failure issues that were moved by me rebooting the iPhone …

    Finally… ☺️

    failed for me. Ran the PP app, told it to jailbreak but on the iphone side…nothing happened at all, never rebooted. simply does nothing even though the app goes thru the motions. odd

    Yep, iphone gets stuck when restoring to the old backup. Too bad =/

    Im getting an error message trying this on my iPad Air 2. Followed all instructions exactly. Did my iPhone 5 about 5 minutes ago, works perfectly. Anyone have any suggestions at to why its bombing on the iPad? Screenshot attached

      I’m doing the same thing and got the same error!!

      • mdb

        I eventually got it to work soon after posting. I turned off everything in Step 1 on my iPhone as well while doing the iPad, namely it seemed Find my iPhone was the trick.
        I also disabled location services and Keychain on the iPad. This was because it didn’t work first time, and thought I’d just give it a try. After rebooting all the devices it worked.

    IDB Team – I’m on 8.1.1 trying to use PP Jailbreak tool, but i keep getting an error. I obviously can’t tell what it’s saying since it’s in chiense, but do you think it’s because Apple stopped signing 8.1.1 or should that not matter?
