If you’ve been looking to jailbreak iOS 7.1.1 and you have a Mac, then check out the new version of Pangu released yesterday. The Chinese team of hackers behind the tool dropped their jailbreak for iOS 7.1.x out of the blue last week, but until today it could only be used on Windows. Not only is there now an OS X version, but the interface has been rewritten in English. Like the Evasi0n jailbreak for iOS 7, using Pangu is pretty straightforward once you download the tool. One weird thing you need for the jailbreak to work is to adjust your device’s internal date in Settings to June 2nd and turn off the “Set Automatically” option. The tool will walk you through the process as you jailbreak.
Last week a team of developers released the first untethered iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, dubbed “Pangu.” At the time, the application only ran on Windows and the entire interface was in Chinese. However, a Mac version of the software was promised, and today that promise has been kept. Pangu 1.1 was released on the dev team’s website earlier today and brings a handful of changes. Most importantly, the software now supports Mac OS X and sports a new English UI. The update goes deeper than just the desktop app, though. Bug fixes have been made to the jailbreak itself to fix issues such as a boot loop on certain devices that was being reported by those who had used version 1.0. Finally, English users no longer need to worry about the shady third-party software that was being installed along with the jailbreak (unless you remembered to un-check that box). The “PP25″ installer will no longer be an option for users with their language set to English, though it seems Chinese users will still be offered the choice. As noted above, you can grab Pangu 1.1 from the developer’s website.
