The message in the screenshot above has been literally machine translated, which clearly suggests that the PanguTeam has been busy with the development of iOS 8 jailberak.

Though there is no word from PanguTeam on the estimated release date or a probable release window for the highly-anticipated iOS 8 jailbreak, history suggests that the next jailbreak could be less than a couple of months away as the first iOS 7 jailbreak arrived three months after the update was released by Apple.

As iDownloadBlog notes, iOS 8 is heralded as the most-open iOS release ever released by Apple, given its support for third-party apps such as Touch ID, widget packs and add-ons or extensions.

It is said that some of these third-party tweaks and apps could be detrimental to jailbreak community as they may cause compatibility issues with jailbreaks.
