  1. Yipiiii…. i just had my iPhone 5 running ios 7.1 jailbroken with Pangu. No stress. Just follow the steps.

  2. Sorry for the stupid questing but…am using 7.0.4 if i upgrade to 7.1.2 am i going to loose all my downloaded apps and stuff???

    1. You won’t lose anything if you back up your device before you upgrade from 7.0.4 to 7.1.2.

    1. yo, me pide que active el dispositivo antes de hacel el salio con reporte..Alguien sabe como saltar este paso??????¡¡¡¡¡¡

  3. I’ve tried installing Pangu twice, and both times I’ve “bricked” my (Sprint locked) iPhone4s with it getting into an unstoppable Pangu boot loop. I suspect the cause of my failures is the popup of a “iPhone is not activated” message during a Pangu install reboot. Once I stumbled into the “how to”, I was able to recover by way of a DFU.

    Should I “Reset” my iPhone4s to default status and install Pangu again, with the hope that if successful, I then can restore my iTunes backup?

    What should be the status of iTunes during the Pangu install?

    please advise.

  4. I have an iPad 4…the jailbreak was flawless. I used the mega download for W7 64, changed the date as instructed. Now for more experimentation.

  5. some problems and a jailbreak timeout erorr, a freeze on startup logo… manually reboot and cydia was there…it’s seems everything is fine.

  6. Just did the Pangu jailbreak on my iPhone 4s. When it finished, I was stuck in the dreaded reboot loop where it briefly displays the Pangu banner and then reboots the phone. A little research found the solution -- put the phone in a bright light (outdoors) AND plug my headphones into the headphone jack -- then power on. It completed the installation and put Cydia on the phone BUT ALL of my apps (or at least the icons) were GONE -- all 150 of them (yeah, I know that’s a little excessive). The solution for me was to use iTunes to do a Manual Restore of the backup that I did just before jailbreaking. About 3 hours after I started and I think I’m good to get on Cydia and restore my favorite tweaks.

  7. please help -- so after installing will the cydia icon still remain on the screen afterwards? Is there an option to download jailbreak/cydia and not have the icon on there>

  8. when i try pangu v1.2.1 it times out on my iphone 5c and when i try on iphone 4s at the end of the jailbreak the pangu app is still there when cydia should be there please can someone help im on windows too

  9. Hi

    I successfully jailbreak my iphone on 7.1.1 and upgraded it to 7.1.2 as expected the jailbroke is gone and when i try to jailbreak it again with pangu v1.2.1 it is saying the the device is already jailbroken.

    Any help please

    1. If you restore it again you should be able to jailbreak again ..that what I had to do with my iPhone 4 and it work lovely …and I have done so many time lol but it works ..good luck and all way do. Back up ?

  10. When i tried to do it, it says “please activate iphone before apply jailbreak”. my iphone is locked and i don’t know how to unlock it. Help please?

  11. Brother please help me i follow these steps and in the start pangu says phone isn’t activated. I inserted sim card in it and iphone 4 said no service. So, is there any way to install pangu while phone isn’t activated.

    1. absolutely no. There are more jailbreak tools if you dont trust this one , like and . try them !!
