How to Jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 using Pangu on Windows & Mac [VIDEO]
July 1, 2014 in Miscellaneous Stuff by
Apple just released iOS 7.1.2 with bug fixes and security updates. Normally, on new iOS updates, I advise jailbreakers to stay away from updating if you don’t want to lose your jailbreak. Luckily, iOS 7.1.2 can be jailbroken using Pangu, so jailbreakers can safely update your iOS device and use Pangu to jailbreak it.Some important points before you proceed
Pangu allows you to jailbreak iOS 7.1 – 7.1.x on Windows & Mac. This jailbreak tool has been tested & it is 100% safe.

Before beginning, do the following
- Please disable the passcode as the jailbreak may fail, if the passcode is enabled. (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock On -> Turn Passcode Off).
- Backup your device using iTunes or iCloud before proceeding.
- Please ensure you’ve updated iTunes to the latest version.
How to jailbreak iOS 7.1.x with Pangu on Mac or Windows
Step 2: Plug your iOS 7.1.x device to your computer via USB
Step 3: Backup your device on iTunes just in case. Also be sure to turn off pass codes (if any) so the jailbreak will run smoothly. (Settings > Passcodes > Turn Passcode Off)
Mac users: Double click on the Pangu dmg file you just downloaded to mount it.
Windows users: Launch the Pangu exe file as an Administrator. Right Click on the Pangu exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.
Step 5: Click the Start Jailbreak button.
Step 6: Pangu will ask you to go to Settings > General > Date & Time and disable the Set Automatically toggle. You will then need to set the date to June 2, 2014. (Date & Time will go back to normal after jailbreak is complete)
Step 7: Once the Jailbreak process begins, you will then see the Pangu app icon on the Home screen. Tap the Pangu icon to launch the Pangu app.
Step 8: From here, you will just sit back & relax while the jailbreak is in process. The whole process takes about 5-10 minutes, so be patient.
Step 9: Once the jailbreak is completed, go ahead and unlock your device. You should now see Cydia on the Home screen.
Congratulations! You are now jailbroken on iOS 7.1.2!
