How to jailbreak iOS 8/8.1

Jailbreaking iOS 8
To jailbreak your iOS 8 or 8.1 device, all you'll need is the device, a compatible USB cable (the one you use to charge the device), and any computer running Windows with iTunes installed. Please note that before you jailbreak your device, it is highly recommended that you backup first! It rarely ever happens, but there is always a chance that jailbreaking can fail and cause an issue on your device. It is also worth mentioning that jailbreaking voids the device warranty with Apple.

If you understand the risks and wish to proceed, head on over to this website here:

When you get to the site, click on the big download button to begin downloading the program. Once it is finished downloading, find the file on your computer. Right click on the file and select "Run as Administrator," then click "Yes."

Before proceeding, make sure Find my iPhone and you lockscreen passcode are completely disabled and turned off!

Once the program launches and appears to recognize your device, uncheck the box, and click the big blue button to begin the jailbreak process. Be patient until the blue progress bar reaches all the way to the end. Once finished, go to your iDevice and launch the new Pangu icon on your homescreen. From there you can proceed to install Cydia. Once Cydia is installed, you are all set! Launch Cydia once to allow it to set up, and then you're good to go. Happy jailbreaking!

How do you jailbreak your phone or any other mobile device? P.S what is jail breaking?

Jailbreaking is well simply let me put it this way. Jailbreaking is removing the limitations put forth by Apple on stock iOS by exploiting bugs in the kernel to allow root access for thrid party applications from other sources besides AppStore to run your primary source would be cydia. Now in simpler terms jailbreaking is the freedom of control fro you device by allowing you to install third party applications that Apple have banned from their appstore or not necessarily banned but people have not tried submitting.

ok.... I think that might be simple enough! Now to the actual jailbreak tools, A jailbreak like I said depends on kernel level exploits so with each new iOS version Apples sometimes pathes those exploits and closes the jailbreak for that iOS until a developer comes along and builds a new tool or improves on a previous one for the new iOS, the latest iOS is currently unjailbroken the latest jailbreakable iOS is 8.1.3 I do believe but to find if your iOS is supported browse to the most common jailbreak tools available for jailbreaking and they will tell you if your iOS is supported.

Most popular ones include but not limited to: Evasi0n, Pangu, and Redsn0w! Goodluck :)

Jailbreak at your own risk and remember the action of jailbreaking 1) will void your warranty if Apple finds out, 2) is not illegal illegal** what you do with the jailbreak can make it ******* such as pirating!

Be safe and do not break any laws!

Legal Claim***

I am not responsible for what happens after you jailbreak and you should only jailbreak if you know what you are doing, I will and can not be held responsible for any possible future legal troubles or device troubles that come up!
