Pangu iOS 7.1.x jailbreak gains support for English, OS X

updated 01:12 pm EDT, Mon June 30, 2014

Fixes boot loops

The team responsible for the Pangu jailbreak has released its first version in English, also the first to support OS X. The tool offers untethered breaks of iOS 7.1.x devices, but last week was released exclusively in Chinese and for Windows. It also gave people an option to install 25PP, an unofficial Chinese app store. For English-speaking users, 25PP installation is disabled by default. The update also solves a problem with iOS devices getting stuck in boot loops.

Apple has made it increasingly difficult to jailbreak iOS. Each new iteration of the firmware closes more security holes, some of which were previously essential to opening up code to third-party customization. Apple though prefers to maintain tight controls on its platform, partly out of a worry that the same exploits could be used maliciously.
