What you should do after jailbreaking iOS 7.1.0 or 7.1.1 with Pangu

Other Apple Chat

Hi. I have heard from credible sources such as iDownloadBlog and ModMyI that the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 7.1.0 and 7.1.1 is safe. I have also used it on my iPhone 4s and iPod 5 and have not had any problems. I am surprised with how smoothly the updating and rejailbreaking and reinstalling all my packages went. However ,there is one thing I did immediately after jailbreaking and I think you should do it as well to avoid problems in the future or to fix problems you are having now. Sources like iDownloadBlog and ModMyI say that Even if you uncheck the box to install the pirate store, Pangu still installs a package called PPSync. It is a package that is supposed to be for installing pirated apps, but it was badly programed and therefor it can cause problems like your device respringing and home screen icons going missing. You should remove the PPSync package. Even if you do not see it in the installed section of Cydia, it is on your device. However, uninstalling it from Cydia is not the correct way to do it anyhow. If you uninstall it from Cydia, it is only partially removed. To completely remove it, add the repo http://cydia.angelxwind.net. When you are done it will show up as Karen's Pineapple in your sources list. Then install the package from that source called complete PPSync Remover. When it is installing it will remove PPSync from your device. I just left the PPSync remover package and the source it came from installed and have had no problems with the Pangu jailbreak. I am not sure if it is necessary to leave it installed, so I left it installed just incase PPSync tries to reinstall itself or something. You do not need to run Complete PPSync Remover, it works automatically. After doing this, you should have no problems with the Pangu jailbreak either.

Hi, I have heard that the jalebreak is untethered. Do I need to plug my phone into the computer each time I turn on the phone?

No. You will not need to use a computer every time you turn your device on. That's what untethered means. If it was tethered then you would need a computer every time your device turned on.

... which will bring me another question: is the ppc removal trustable?

I am curious to know what trustable jailbrokers such as evadi or so spelled who have been the jailbrookers untill now have to tell us about these strange new jailbreaks...

Could someone tell me what are all the additional features we get because of jailbreaking our device? Or in another words, what's the use of jailbreaking?

The idevices are only what Apple thinks, and most part I agree with, a black box where you do some operations.
But in real life they are a real OS with a file system, a set of utilities, a set of features like any computer.
If you jailbreak ... you and possiblyy anyone who figures out how to bypass security restriction will gain acess to your device. This is a full featured unix like system and you can do anything the OS supports including install common *nix software such as webservers, interpreters like python, new features, anything you can think.
I suggest you do a search around to see what you can do with jailbrokebn uidevices ... but I honestly am happy with what Apple lets meto do. Installing webservers on my device doesnt seen that great incredible woubnderful thing, this is why I have computers aroubnd.

Doing a jailbroken is risky because you are changing your firmwar and giving more liberty to both tyourself and to applications written by others to use your system. Some think that the risk is worth, others like me ddisagree.

this is the stupidest thing i've done in my life.
I recently planned to visit apple service, so I deleted all my tweaks using cydelete and later to deletecydia I opened cydia and removed cydia substrate which made cydia dissapear from springboard.
now i'm not able to get cydia back. I tried to rejailbreak it using pangu 1.1 but after first reboot, it says jailbreak timedout. any way to get cydia back?

thanks in advance
