• Saurik Releases Cydia Substrate for iOS 8

    On Wednesday, the Pangu jailbreak team released a new Chinese jailbreak tool for Windows that can jailbreak iOS 8.0 through iOS 8.1 on nearly every device that can run the new software. Jay Freeman (Saurik) was quick to update Cydia so that it could be installed manually on a jailbroken iOS 8.x device.

    Following up on his work, Freeman has updated Cydia Substrate on Thursday to version 0.9.5013 with full support for iOS 8.0 through iOS 8.1. The update is available in Cydia right now for all users, and should be installed on all iOS 8 devices for any jailbreak tweaks to be installed. At this point in time, the list of jailbreak tweaks that actually work on iOS 8 is very low, so we recommend exercising caution at this point in time.

    The iOS 8 version of Cydia Substrate does come with a caveat, however. Since Pangu loads Cydia Substrate AFTER every other process, it is necessary for you to respring your device after each reboot by using the terminal command "killall backboardd" with the free MobileTerminal application from Cydia.

    Saurik notes that he and his team are working with Pangu to fix this problem in an upcoming update for the Pangu jailbreak tool. The updated tool should also include Cydia bundled up with the software so that when users actually jailbreak their device(s), they won't have to manually install Cydia to install their favorite Cydia extensions.

      Not only does Saurik somehow get all his software working on every iOS configuration ever possible since the release of the first iPhone SDK, but he gets them working with proper interfaces and in record time. Surely he's a genius.

      Yeah, I installed it and couldn't do anything with it. All this means is that a real JB is on the way very soon. Thanks Saurik for the quick turn around working with Pangu.

      With all the recent rumors of the Chinese trying to hack apple servers how do we know that Pangu is safe?

      I'm glad to see Five Icon Dock seems to be working for some on iOS 8, but why did iOS 8 NOT come with a 5 icon layout by default?!?
      There's plenty of room now that the iPhone 6 has a 4.7" screen.
      Drives me nuts that such a simple thing isn't baked in (or at least make it a settings option).

      A work around to this issue, is to install animate and animate fix because on boot, it resprings after loading the boot logo. So just download and install that, and a boot logo of your choice, and use that. I haven't tested it, however I think it should work. Someone plz try and get back to me on this, just leave a reply and I'll look into it more
