Jailbreaking with Pangu tool was never a very difficult job. Even in the past, we have seen that users from all over the world have referred to the Pangu tools to jailbreak their devices. The team has just released the Pangu8 tool for Windows as they claim that the Mac version is still under development. Now if you ask that, how difficult it is jailbreak your iOS device, I will certainly have to state that with Pangu tool, the act becomes quite easy. But for that to happen, you will have to follow the procedure correctly.The jailbreak using Pangu8 tool will be allowed for iOS devices like iPhone 4S or better, iPad 2 or better, iPod Touch 5th generation and all iPad minis. Thus, only those devices will be allowed to have a jailbreak who will also be able to harbor the legitimate iOS 8. Unlike with iOS 7, jailbreaking iOS 8 will take a much lesser time to complete, considering that you have followed the steps correctly.

Although the jailbreaking is done by the tool itself, what you will be needed to do is take a note of the precautions. As it happens, that if you forget to take any steps, your Apple device can be  damaged significantly.

Steps to Jailbreak your iOS device with Pangu8 tool:

Step 1: The first step is the most important one in the process of Jailbreaking. You must ensure that all the security programs in your computer like Firewalls and Antivirus are disabled. If any such application keeps running and you start the jailbreaking process, the Apple device will be damaged significantly.

Step 2: You must also ensure that you keep a spare copy of the jailbreaking tool somewhere else, such that you can create a primary restore of backup data in case something wrong happens. Also ensure that your device has at least 80% charge left in its battery.

Step 3: Enable the Airplane mode for your device. Along with this, you will also have to disable features like passcode, Touch ID as well as ‘Find my location’ setting.

Step 4: Now you must initiate the Jailbreaking tool and ensure that the tool detects your device.

Step 5: Once this is done, just click on ‘Start Jailbreak’ button.

Step 6: In case you have a complete backup of your data on the device, click ‘Already Did’ else abort the process and initiate it again.

Step 7: Wait patiently for the completion of the process. Once it is completed, your device will reboot and you will be able to see the Cydia icon on your home screen.
