Those of you who have been searching for online support on how to jailbreak your device on iOS 8 using Pangu (Windows), can now have access to a complete guide on how to successfully achieve that. You can also address any other questions in the Comments or Answers section.
There are two elements you have to make sure you take care of before we start. First, you have to eliminate any passcodes on the device, only for now. After the jailbreak process is complete, you can put it back on. Second, make sure you create back ups, especially if you have previously updated OTA.
Our instruction guide starts with the iPad back up, that has to be performed manually, after the device has been connected to the computer. If you feel more comfortable, please feel free to follow our instructions right here.
Number two, we can provide a list of links right here that you can use to download the updated Pangu version. Downloading the latest version is crucial especially if you own an iPad 2. Our advice would be to place it directly on the desktop, in a newly created folder called Pwnage, along with another updated version of iOS 8.1.1 firmware, by using the links right here.
Next thing you have to do is to place the downloaded Pangu file inside our folder on the desktop, and then proceed with the actual launching of the iTunes.
The other thing you have to take care of is to make sure the device stays connected by USB to the computer. This way you will see it on the top right corner of the window, or on the left sidebar, either way is perfectly fine – that’s where you can select it.
What follows is to press and hold the Shift key and click the Restore iPad button. A window will appear and that is when you must go to the initially created Pwnage folder on the desktop and select your iPad firmware ipsw. After that, just click Open.
The next click will be on the Restore button click, so you can confirm the restore decision. And once that is completed, you can launch the application, by right clicking the pangu8.exe icon, and then selecting Run as Administrator from the menu.
A very important condition here would be to remove all lock screen passcodes that you have on the device, and then you can click the Jailbreak button and get started.
What will happen next is the application will extract all the information that the jailbreak process requires, it will upload it and perform all the necessary steps, so all you have to do is wait until you will be asked to reboot the system.
Another important aspect is the new pangu 8 app icon, as you will have to unlock the device and tap it. And it is very important to tap one time only, causing the app to open and close almost in the same time. All of that will affect the entire system, so the device will reboot. Once that happens, you will have to modify rootfs and you’re done.
Finally, the device will reboot, with Cydia this time on the Springboard, and it is also important to download the iClarified app using this link right here. Feel free to contact us if you have questions and need more assistance.
