The Pangu team is based out of China and gave us the iOS 7.1.1 untethered jailbreak. This release was very unexpected and we weren’t very sure if the jailbreak could be trusted. Before Pangu, there was Evasi0n and they had a pretty good track record. Pangu came out of nowhere and gave us the iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak, which is why we weren’t very sure of it at first. Despite the suspicions, users were eager to try the new jailbreak from Pangu. The very first version of Pangu was only available for Windows users and in Chinese. Later on, an English version of the tool with Mac support was released. The Pangu jailbreak tool is compatible with any iOS device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) running iOS 7.1 – iOS 7.1.1, iOS 8 – iOS 8.1. and iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2 If you’re on any of these iOS versions, then you can use Pangu 7, Pangu 8 or Pangu 9 tool to jailbreak your iOS device.
