    Word around the jailbreak community is that only three of seven exploits have been patched by Apple in iOS 8.1.1. However, a jailbreak for 8.1.1 is highly unlikely and more likely for 8.2.

    So despair not.

    How far out-ish is 8.2?

    Who knows? Certainly after the first of the year. Probably for the Apple Watch.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking too.

    It's just good to know that there at least four good exploits left.

    This new Pangu team seems like the real deal. Wait until Apple does a "real" update, then hit them again.

    It's real, it's just not feature-rich. The Pangu team is following the patterns of pretty much every jailbreak developer we've had. They typically skip the incremental updates because it's easy for us to avoid them. There isn't much to tempt us. They don't have enough time or exploits to launch jailbreaks as often as Apple launches new firmware.
