iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users can finally access third party apps and maximize their devices' customization potentials through Pangu's jailbreak tool. According to Redmond Pie, the system can specifically jailbreak iOS 8 to iOS 8.1 untethered on iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, all iPads and iPod Touch 5.

We have previously reported what jailbreaking is, so it is highly encouraged to know what it is all about before proceeding with anything else. Redmond Pie also provided instructions on how to jailbreak iOS 8.1 untethered using Pangu8 (Windows tutorial) here and how to jailbreak iOS 8 to 8.1 on Mac with Pangu for Windows (Mac OS X tutorial) here.

International Business Times noted that tantamount to greater number of apps are various app repositories coming from Cydia. In the mean time, jailbroken users on the lookout of downloadable apps may check out Karen's Pineapple Repo, Hashbang and Big Boss.

The outlet provided instructions on adding repositories to the popular jailbreak app store: Launch the Cydia app > Manage > Edit > Add > Paste link into dialog box > Add source.

Compatible tweaks had been compiled by iDigitalTimes. The source reported that over 350 tweaks had been made available for Pangu's latest system, including the following: 20 Second Lockscreen, Activator (some features working), AdaptiveKeyboard, AlphaBadge, BetterPasscodeKeypad, BioLockdown, CCControls (partially working), DietBar, Dropped, EZRingtones, FolderCloser, iCleaner, InstaEnhancer, LocationFaker, MapsOpener, NewTabKeyboard, No Alerts Private Browsing, OpenSSL, Phantom for Snapchat, QuickCall, Shy Page Dots, Software Update Killer, Tab+, Unlimited iTunes Radio Skips 8, Wake With Weather, WiFi Booster, XModGames, YoutubeToMp3 and so much more.

It must be noted that the list of tweaks is periodically updated. See the most current, complete compatibility list here.

While the jailbreak community took time to rejoice, Gotta Be Mobile reported that Apple's next mobile update, iOS 8.1.1 (Beta), has already been released. Apparently, the update patches up Pangu's jailbreak exploits -- as confirmed by the Pangu team in a tweet.

"Anyone who has not upgraded to iOS 8.x and wants to, do it soon. It appears Apple patched the method used in Pangu8 to inject the jailbreak," wrote Adam I.

Users clinging to earlier iOS may then need to leap into iOS 8.1 the soonest possible time, saving the ability to upgrade into a jailbreakable iOS. IBT took notice in another report that Apple prevents iOS users from installing anything aside from the latest mobile operating system available.
