iOS hackers Evad3rs doesn’t have a jailbreak for iOS 7.1.1 and 7.1.2, but Chinese hackers PanGu does.
However, both links don’t offer Evad3rs’ jailbreaks. Instead, they provide the same link to an article on how to download and install PanGu’s iOS 7.1.1 and 7.1.2’s jailbreaks.
Not much is known of the Chinese jailbreak team. According to idownloadblog.com, the team consists of Hao (windknown), XiaBo Chen (dm557), Daniel Manoppo (Daniel_K4), and possibly other yet to be revealed hackers.
PanGu appears to be the only hackers who have successfully jailbroken Apple’s latest mobile operating system.
Apple frowns upon jailbreaking, and has made their software harder and harder to exploit with each iOS patch.
Jailbreaking is a hack that allows Apple users to install apps that aren’t permitted via the Apple Store on their iOS device.
Still, hackers persist with hacking the iOS and finding exploits so that iOS users can have more lee way in customizing their Apple devices.
The various jailbreaks are not problem free, however.
Shortly after the PanGu jailbreak was released, there were reports that the jailbreak has a problem where apps disappeared from the home page after the jailbreak was installed.
Since then, it has be ascertained that the issue was not unique to the PanGu jailbreak.
A jailbreaker Stefan Esser, had also claimed that PanGu stole his ideas and exploits, and that the jailbreak contains “malware from China.”
