Today, Chinese hackers from the Pangu team have unexpectedly released a jailbreak utility for iOS 8-8.1 Pangu8. The first version of the utility turned out to be too raw, and the hackers immediately posted an updated version – which, alas, lacks the Cydia app store.
The creator of Cydia, Jay Freeman (Saurik), responded to the release of Pangu8 quite quickly, and a few hours later posted a version of Cydia compatible with the “jailbroken” iOS 8-8.1. But since Pangu8 does not have Cydia, everyone who wants to install this alternative online application store for themselves will have to do it themselves.
Installing Cydia will not cause problems even for untrained users. All you need to do is download the deb file from this link, then install the app on your iOS device using SSH. The OpenSSH package comes bundled with the Pangu application, which appears on the device after jailbreak.
At the same time, Saurik does not recommend using the Pangu8 jailbreak utility in its current form, as it may contain bugs and bugs. Jay Freeman has already given the updated Cydia to the Pangu8 developers, and a full version of the utility should be available soon.
