Today, ensuing Apple’s recent release of iOS 8.1 and the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3, as well as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last month, Pangu surprised the masses yet again with their brand new Jailbreak iOS 8 through 8.1 utility for all iPhone, iPod touch and iPad models. However, there’s a serious catch: seeing as Saurik has yet to update both Cydia and Cydia substrate, the primary components that enable the graphical user interface for third-party tweak distribution, Pangu for iOS 8 merely enables root access and SSH, at least for now.

That being said, considering we have no clue when Apple will release an updated 8.1.x firmware to patch the vulnerabilities exploited by Pangu, it would behoove those interested in a more familiar Jailbreak to take advantage of this opportunity while it exists.
