The untethered jailbreak release surprised the jailbreaking community last week and, it would appear, Apple as well. We knew even before that the release of iOS 8.1.1 was imminent, but with the untethered jailbreak tool in emergence, we wondered whether Apple would take the opportunity to plug the exploit as it set about fixing the email attachment encryption issue bug. Fortunately for us, though, the Cupertino giant has not, as as such iOS 8.1.1 can be jailbroken using the pre-existing methods made available by the jailbreaking outfit.
Before jailbreaking, you must turn off any lock screen passcode or Touch ID (Settings > General > Touch ID & Passcode > turn off Simple Passcode) as well as Find My iPhone (Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone), and naturally, your device will need to have spare storage space in order to run Pangu in the first place. Passcode and Touch ID can be turned on after the jailbreak and Cydia installation is complete.
Turn on Airplane mode. Airplane mode can be turned off once jailbreak is complete.
You must have an iTunes restored version of iOS 8.1.1 / 8.1 installed on your device for the jailbreak to work. If you updated from iOS 7.x to 7 via OTA then the jailbreak won’t work. You can download iOS 8.1.1 from Apple.com, and restore using iTunes.
Make sure you backup your device completely before proceeding either through iTunes or using iCloud (Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup and turn on iCloud Backup). At this stage, there’s a reasonable chance that something may go wrong, and while many of you will undoubtedly be prepared to take this chance, you don’t want to lose your data for good.
You must have iTunes lastest installed on your PC before you can even begin. But that’s not it; it should also be running in the background when the jailbreak process is taking place.
