Pangu team releases iOS 8 jailbreak tool for OS X
The Pangu team has released its iOS 8 jailbreak tool for Mac. This will provide a one-click jailbreak solution for anyone without a Windows computer. Previously the tool was only available for Windows, which could also be used within a virtual machine on OS X, but now it’s native.
Actually This is obviously an ideal situation for anyone that owns a Mac. This release wasn’t a huge surprise as the Pangu team confirmed that it was in the works, but only mentioned that it “may come out in couple of days.” Recently the Window’s version of the tool was updated to version 1.2.1 and bundled with Cydia 1.1.16 which addressed boot loop issues and that were present after a backup/restore.
We don’t expect to see any problems with the OS X release of Pangu, but make sure that you’ve backed up your iOS 8 device prior to jailbreaking. If you’re on the fence about jailbreaking this time around, Cydia’s creator Saurik has given Pangu his official seal of approval and mentioned that things seem to be “stable enough.”
Jailbreaking will open a door of opportunities and new features for iOS 8, but keep in mind that it technically voids your warranty and Apple will be unable to service a jailbroken device. The Pangu jailbreak tool for OS X
