A new jailbreak tool called Pangu has been released that is capable of bringing untethered jailbreak of iOS 7.1.1 and all other versions of iOS 7.1 to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The jailbreak originates from China and has been made available for Windows. According to Pangu’s website that Mac version is also in the works and will be released soon. The jailbreak has been termed sketchy by many so proceed at your own risk. However based on user reviews available on the web it seems like the tool does works as intended and causes no harm to devices.

We tested the Pangu tool on iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.1 and it works perfectly.

The tool supports jailbreak for iPhone 5s, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina Display and iPod touch 5th generation.

In this post we are going to show you how to untethered jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 7.1.x using Pangu tool.

Download Pangu from the offiical website, using the links below.

Step 1. First of all open iTunes and create a backup of of all your data. On iTunes click on your device’s button from top right and then click on ‘Back Up Now’. Only proceed once the backup has been created successfully.

Step 2. Change your iOS device’s current date to ‘2 June 2014’. To do so open Settings > General > Date and Time. Make sure ‘Set Automatically’ setting is turned off.

Step 3. Once you have downloaded connect your iOS device to the computer and launch the tool. On Windows 8 if you get a warning click on ‘More info’ and then click on ‘Allow’, On Windows 7 run as ‘Administrator’ by right clicking.

If you don’t want the PP pirated jailbreak store un-check the box at the bottom.

Click on the black button (which may have ‘????’ on it) to start the process.

Step 4. As soon as the installer reaches around 20 percent, it will ask you to launch the app on your iOS device. On your homescreen look for the Pangu app and launch it.

Step 5. Do not close the Pangu app and let it do its job. Your device will restart in the process.

Step 6. After your device reboots and Pangu shows 100 percent progress launch Cydia. That’s it!

  • Saman auyb

    Guys i have tested on iphone 4 s and ipad 3 good But other saying i have done false telling PANGU JAILBREAK not good it is fake is that true should i remove from my devices :/

    🙁 Please help me ):

    • It is completely safe if you follow the step 3 properly i.e uncheck the tick mark before running the jailbreak tool.

    • iPhone4IosHacks

      ITs completely safe pangu jailbreak is awsome

  • Erman

    Hello Zaib,

    I tried to jailbreak my iphone 5 but when Pangu’s bar is around %80-90 my phone reboots a few times (as usual) and i get “Storage almost full” warning. After that it goes into boot loop. Opens up and Pangu icon with Enjoy the jailbreak^^ text and then reboot again and again.

    Is there a way to fix this? Or I have to wait for pangu 1.1?

    • May be your device is running low on available storage. Try deleting a few apps or game and try again.

  • Nina

    After the jailbreak, Can I change the date back to todays date?

    • Yes you can

      • Nina

        Oh thank you. I was so worried.

      • Nina

        Do you know if winterboard is compatible with this version of the jailbreak?

        • Yes it works flawlessly. Been using it myself.

          • Nina

            It works, but now I cant acsess Bytafont 2 or ifile?

          • Were you able to do that before? There may be some compatibility issues. I haven’t tested these together.

          • Nina

            Nevermind, I figured it out, thanks

  • Antonio

    Would this also do the no service thing? I’ve been trying to find a way to get service on a iPhone 4 GSM Jailbroken with Geeksn0w. Any tips for a way to solve it?

  • Robin Bäckman

    I would also know how to fix the no service after jailbreaked with geeksnow.. I’ve done a full restore x2 thrue itunes, still no service.. Then i tried Pangu and still wont work..
    The phone did work fine before jailbreak aswell, ain’t locked.

  • Mark

    I connected my iPhone 4s and itunes recognizes it but when I’m about to click the 4 question mark button it does nothing it’s still dark and shaded kind of like. Pls help I’ve been trying this for a week

    • pineapple

      ive had the same problem, dont know whats going on

    • iPhone4IosHacks


  • Gary Lee

    i install on my ipad 4. everything goes fine and everything but when its done and says success there is no cydia on my ipad

    • Anthrax

      Same issue here. No cydia

  • hit maani

    the software is incompatible with my iphone 4 after the 1st restart it doesnt continue again

  • Gary Lee

    I was finally able to get it to work. Make absolutely certain that autolock is turned off and passcode is turned off. Make sure you have the newest version of iTunes and also do a backup. After trying it for the fourth time it was actually working. Jailbreak went great but make sure you do everything first. It also wouldn’t work for me until I did the backup. I’m not certain if maybe they use the backup as part of the jailbreak process but it didn’t work until I did it.

    • iPhone4IosHacks

      You Probalby did something wrong did you uncheck that button?

  • Gary Lee

    So just to clarify it is now working for me on my iPad 4. Running ios 7.1 and I used the pangu jailbreak 1.1.0

  • Gary Lee

    Also, change the date before even starting the jailbreak.

  • Tony Petretta

    Why do all my other Cydia jailbreaks at the bottom of the screen on the cydia welcome page have a section’s tab and a manage tab and since breaking with Pangu , layout on the bottom of the cydia home page seems different?

  • Ambermile
