In this competitive world Pangu is a one of jailbreaking teams among the jailbreak community. And Pangu team is a Chinese team and they are the people who develop Pangu Jailbreak tools such that install Cydia on idevices (iPhone, iPad or iPod touch). It means that when the jailbreak process is done, users can bypass the device restrictions then enable root access on iOS. Then user has ability to install third party applications and make changes to do customizations which can not do with Apple store.
Pangu team has released several jailbreaking tools to the public; at the begin, from iOS 7.1 to iOS 7.1.X are jailbroken by Pangu team on 23th June, 2014 for all Apple devices including Apple TV 4. However this jailbreak tool released initially including iOS 7.1.2, because the Pangu team suspected to see imminent firmware update.
So, Pangu users faith on it to Pangu jailbreak to install Cydia on behalf of other jailbreak processes. As the beginning of Pangu released version v1.0.0, there is a chinese app store (25PP) which is cracked promising to install if the user will not uncheck that come as checked in default. However 25PP has removed in the next version v1.1.0.
For the initial version v1.0.0, Pangu used Stefan Esser’s paid security together with other jailbreakers. From the next version Pangu replaced Esser with another person which could found vulnerable on behalf of Pangu.
This is the pangu jailbreak tool that released Pangu in order to jailbreak iOS 8.0 to iOS 8.1, which is free of charge on 22nd October 2014. Now Pangu8 available for both English and Chinese which have capable to jailbreak iPhone 6, 6 plus, iPad mini 1, mini 2, mini 3 also iPad Air 1, Air 2 running on iOS 8.
By this pangu jailbreak tool can be jailbroken iOS 9.0-iOS 9.1 and this is the latest version that pangu has released to the public on 14th October 2015. Pangu 9 is available in English version that has capable to jailbreak 64 bit idevices for both OSX and Windows. So, with this Pangu 9 release Cydia with Pangu instead of Pangu app which was used for previous releases.
With initial releases Cydia wasn’t compatible with Pangu. So, Pangu8 and before used Pangu app in order to Cydia download for users. By the way Pangu app efforts as tweaks as well as it can be recommended as a tool like OpenSSH. After installation of Cydia we can remove the Pangu app using “Pangu loader” for iOS.
iOS 11.1 the final software update for Apple devices, no one has successfully jailbroken. Pangu also still unable to release any jailbreak downloads on iOS 11 releases for now.
Firmware downloads after iOS 11 major release, haven't jailbroken to install apps from bundled Cydia. We are hope Pangu will make a tool to iOS 11 jailbreak.
Still, no one released any jailbreak downloads on iOS 10 releases. But sources reported that Pangu jailbreak has been successfully demoed on iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak and iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak at Mobile security conference. But still, they haven't released it out. We hope they may launch it soon.
Recently, Apple released iOS 10 to the community. There are lots of new features on iOS 10.0.1 version. There is no any Pangu jailbreak iOS 10.0.1 tool. We've heard some news of Pangu jailbreak iOS 10.0.1. They are trying to release pangu 10 for the public soon. However, Apple has patched major exploits against the Jailbreak iOS 10 version.
Since Apple patched those exploits that used for iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, still there is no any acceptable tool released to Jailbreak iOS 9.3.4. If you are already using a jailbroken iDevice on iOS 9.3.3 or lower, better not to upgrade them to iOS 9.3.4.
Currently iOS 9.3.2 has released and iOS 9.3.3 betas also are releasing as well as iOS 10 is about to released as announced at WWDC 2016. Still there isn’t available a jailbreak iOS 9.3.2 tool in public for iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak. Therefore our advice is that if you have a jailbroken idevice keep it as it is until next jailbreak tool is released to the public. According to the rumors the Pangu team is working for jailbreak iOS 9.3. Also Apple just released their iOS 10 beta, so wait for iOS 10 and iOS 10 jailbreak update as well.
