These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5, 4s on iOS 8.0 – 8.1 using Pangu8 for Mac…
If you aren’t already at iOS 8.1 we suggest upgrading to the latest firmware using iTunes. You can find download links for iOS 8.1 here. Please note that you must update using iTunes rather than Software Update. If you used Software Update you should do a backup then restore to iOS 8.1 using iTunes.
Create an iClarified folder on your desktop and download the latest version of Pangu into the folder.
Double click the downloaded Pangu dmg file to mount it.
Tap Settings from your Springboard then select Touch ID & Passcode. Turn Passcode Off if it is enabled.
Press the Settings button at the top left to return to the Settings menu. Choose iCloud from the Settings menu then select Find My iPhone from the iCloud menu. Ensure the Find My iPhone switch is the Off position.
Return to the Settings menu by tapping the iCloud then Settings buttons at the top left of the screen. Then enable Airplane Mode by tapping the Airplane Mode switch.
Connect your iPhone to the computer via a USB cable, launch iTunes, and perform a manual backup. It is very important that you remember to backup your device before continuing as you could lose your data if the jailbreak process does not complete successfully.
Right click or hold down Control and click the Pangu app from the iClarified folder on your desktop.
Click Open from the contextual menu that appears.
Click Open when warned that Pangu is from an unidentified developer.
You will be prompted to confirm that you’ve backed up your device and that it’s in Airplane Mode, click theAlready Did button to continue.
*A big thanks to the Pangu team and all the others who contributed to this jailbreak.
