The past few major jailbreaks that have come out of the community have been from the evad3rs. Today, out of nowhere, as unexpected as can be, Chinese jailbreak developer team PanGu released an untethered jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1. The jailbreak is still in its infancy stages and many in the community recommend waiting until it is clear that the tools is legitimate. However, we’ve already heard from a few jailbreak fans that it does, indeed work.

The PanGu jailbreak tool is currently only available on Windows, but an OS X version is in the works. It is compatible with the iPad Air, iPad mini, iPhone 5 series, iPhone 4 series, and current generation of iPod touch.

Jailbreak stars like iH8sn0w have already confirmed that the tool does not include spyware or other malicious content. However, it does automatically install a piracy store. It should be noted here that PadGadget does not support app piracy in anyway. It is unfortunate that this tool puts that type of temptation at the jailbreak community’s fingertips.

According to jailbreak website iDownloadBlog, PanGu may bring with it an irritating crash problem for native iOS apps. PPSync is known to cause issues, which can result in apps like Safari, Mail, and Weather crashing upon launch.

iOS developer Karen Tsai recommends jailbreak users to install the package alongside another tool available on Cydia called Complete PPSync Remover, which will remove the function.

Of course, if you are interested in jailbreaking your iPad, you proceed at your own risk. PadGadget is not responsible for damages you may incur by installing the unauthorized software on your device.
