Yesterday, Chinese hackers released a jailbreak utility for iOS 8 / 8.1 Pangu8, which came as a complete surprise to both tweak developers and Cydia creator Jay Freeman. A few hours after the release of Pangu8, Freeman updated Cydia, but tweaks and apps installed through this online store were working with bugs and glitches.
Problems in the work of tweaks and applications were caused by the incomplete compatibility of the MobileSubstrate framework with iOS 8. Jay Freeman was at his best this time – and promptly updated the framework.
Cydia Substrate patch 0.9.5013 brings compatibility of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 8 / 8.1 with a lot of Cydia tweaks. Thanks to the release of the updated framework, the task for tweak developers has been simplified, and users have got rid of bugs, bugs and glitches on jailbroken devices.
We should expect that in the near future the developers will ensure the compatibility of their tweaks with iOS 8 / 8.1, and we also want to hope for an update to the Pangu8 utility, which is still far from ideal.
