It goes without saying that if you are using Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 or any other jailbreak on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch then you should stay away from this release until further notice. It would be interesting to see if Apple has fixed the vulnerability that is being used in Pangu jailbreak or not, which is very unlikely since the tool was just released a few days ago. If the vulnerabilities are still there than it is just a matter of time before iOS 7.1.2 jailbreak is released by Pangu team.
Update: iOS 7.1.2 is jailbreak safe and can be jailbroken using the existing Pangu tool. Here’s our full guide on how to jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 it.
