The PanguTeam on Saturday released an important update on the status of its jailbreak utility for iOS 8 - 8.1. As you probably know, earlier this week, the hackers released a new version of untethered jailbreak for iOS 8 - 8.1.

Many things point to the bug in the program code of iOS 8, however, it is unclear why only the larger iPhones are affected by this bug. Some experts believe something is wrong with the hardware.

Saurik Releases iOS 8 Version of Cydia



Saurik has released an iOS 8 compatible version of Cydia for manual download following the release of an untethered Pangu jailbreak for iOS 8 - iOS 8.1.

I've given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I've also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to apt.saurik.com for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I'm on that is about to take off).

Recently the Pangu8 jailbreak was released for Windows only, and without a compatible version of Cydia. Now that the compatible Cydia deb has been released you can download it from here: http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.1.13 ... os-arm.deb.

In addition to iOS 8.1, Apple also released version 7.0.1 for third-generation Apple TV boxes.

How to live stream Apple’s Oct. 16 iPad/Mac event on Windows



Need to stream Apple’s live event on a Windows machine?
