Jailbreak iOS 7.1.2 using Pangu.

iOS is closed source. This means that developers must conform to a controlled environment to create content. This technique has proven to work, with the App Store bringing in $10 billion in revenue in 2013. However, there is a sizable niche that prefers some freedom on the platform. Android has made users aware of all the things they should be able to control on a platform. This is where jailbreaking comes into play. iOS users can tweak and tweak the platform to their liking and create their own environment, which has the stability and finesse of iOS with the customization of Android. This is how you can Jailbreak and go back to iOS 7.1.2

A few notes before we start. Since I am working on a Mac, I have used the Mac version of Pangus to enable jailbreak, however the Windows version works exactly the same. It is always advisable to create a backup before attempting anything big. You should also make sure that your battery is charged to at least 80%. There were cases, long ago, of systems that crashed as a result of a jailbreak, that is not the case today. In the worst case, you might get stuck in a boot loop, we’ll also tell you how to recover from there. Also, as long as you’re not running hacked apps, Jailbreaking (as far as we know) is legal. You will be at higher risk of malware infection as it gives your software higher permissions. The more you modify your device, the harder you will drain the battery. If you ever need to update your iOS to the latest firmware, you will need to update that firmware with a clean install and jailbreak your device again, in which case you will lose your settings, which you can recover via backup. With all that in mind, let’s get started. This tracking was done on an iPhone 5s.

The first step requires setting the date on your device to June 2, 2014. To do this, go to Settings > General > Date & time. Once there, turn off “Set Automatically” and set the date to June 2, 2014. Some apps will take action and report server sync errors, which you shouldn’t worry about as this is only temporary.

Now, connect your iOS device to your computer and turn off any software that might start automatically. Now turn on Pangu and click on “Jailbreak”. This will start a process that installs the Pangu app on your device. When prompted, open the app from your device and let it finish processing. If there were no complications, the device will automatically reboot. Make sure not to disconnect the device for any reason during this process. If there is an error, Pangu will tell you, in which case you can disconnect it, reconnect it and try again. In case Pangu asks you to manually reboot, do it while keeping it connected. I tried it twice, once I had to manually reboot, the second time it did it on its own. So if you follow the instructions correctly, you won’t have any problems.

You will know that the process has been successful when you see the Cydia app in your list of apps. You can now adjust the date and time as mentioned above. Your device is now jailbroken. You can modify and customize to your liking.

Now, in case there is a problem and your phone is stuck on the Apple logo, or you just want to restore your iOS to its original settings, then skip the part about recovery and go to the part about restore.


Turn off your iOS device. Hold down the Start button and connect it to your computer. Now while holding down the Home button, wait until you see a screen telling you to connect to iTunes. As soon as you connect, iTunes will show a popup window stating that an iPhone/iPod/iPad is in recovery mode and needs to be restored before you can use it. Click OK.

Restoration is a simple process. Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes. It will show you your phone, click Restore. Create a backup if you haven’t already, then hit restore and let it do the rest.

Now let him do his job. It will download a fresh copy of the firmware (this could take hours depending on your connection speed). This restore will wipe the device and install a fresh iOS. The best part is that you can try to jailbreak again after this.

In case it seems like your device is rapidly dropping battery, let it drain until it turns off. Then, while keeping it off, charge it overnight. When you wake up, your battery stats will be reset and you will see a significant boost in performance. You can do this even if you haven’t jailbroken your device, your battery life will only benefit from this (once every few months).
