Pangu has updated it iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.1.2 (including iOS 7.1.1) Jailbreak tool for iPhone 4, 4s, 5, 5c, 5s, iPad, iPod Touch that would support Mac OS X systems and English language including bug fixes on iOS devices.pangu-jailbreak-tool

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Mac OS X users can now jailbreak their iOS devices with the updated Pangu iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak tool. The Jailbreak was released last week which was compatible only with Windows systems and included an option to third-party Chinese app called “25pp“. The updated tool has removed the installation of the third-party app for English users by default. The installation steps are also displayed in English for easy installation.

Pangu’s jailbreak is seen as an updated version of the EvasiOn tool that was released last year to jailbreak devices running iOS 7.0 to iOS 7.0.4. EvasiOn received widespread criticism after Jay Freeman, administrator of Cydia mentioned that the Cydia was not an official version and included a third-party app store called Taig for Chinese users. The evad3rs team later apologized for its move and removed the third-party app store.

The untethered jailbreak will allow users to use the device without connecting to the PC every time the device restarts as a tethered jailbreak will require users to connect to the PC. Jailbreak allows a host of tweaks and apps to be installed that are not verified by the Apple app store.

The Pangu jailbreak tool features a new user interface along with various bug fixes within the tool. Some users of the 1.0 version had reported boot loops on their devices which has been fixed as well. Two popular jailbreakers in the U.S, MusceNerd and iH8snOw have assured that the Pangu tool does not contain any malicious content as the tool is developed in China.

However Stefan Esser, a popular security expert and jailbreaker slammed the developers of the tool for stealing his tricks from a recent training session. Esser called the developers “thieves” and mentioned that the Pangu installers will have much fun with malware from China. Users are advised to exercise caution while installing the Jailbreak tool.
