iOS 8.1.1 Update Kills Pangu8 Jailbreak: Should You Really Update to iOS 8.1?
iOS 8.1.1 Update Kills Pangu8 Jailbreak: Should You Really Update to iOS 8.1?

Apple and the jailbreak community seem to be at loggerheads with each other over the use of jailbreaks ever since the first jailbreak was released for iOS.

Now, Apple has made its latest attempt to kill all existing exploits used by Pangu8 jailbreak with the release of iOS 8.1.1 beta.

According to a discerning member of Pangu Team, Daniel_K4, the latest iOS 8.1.1 beta update breaks all existing exploits used by Pangu8 jailbreak and thereby renders the jailbreak useless for all devices running the latest public version of iOS 8.

Here is what Daniel_K4 had to say in his latest message via Weibo (translated by Reddit user illusiomist):

What It Means to iOS 8 Jailbreakers?

Pangu is yet to update the Pangu8 jailbreak to support iOS 8.1.1 and hence those who are running the latest iOS 8.1.1 update on their devices will be unable to jailbreak the same in its current state.

On the contrary, those who have already jailbroken their device on iOS 8.1 can continue to enjoy the latest jailbreak tweaks and apps as long as they do not accidentally update to iOS 8.1.1.

Meanwhile, users who are yet to jailbreak with iOS 8.1 update are advised to make use of this opportunity as Apple is expected to stop signing iOS 8.1 firmware files, following the public release of iOS 8.1.1.
