iPhone Pangu8 seems... tethered?

Ok, this is really weird. Pangu is supposedly untethered, right? Yeah, ok, but it's the third time that I've installed it on a brand new iPhone 5 (I had an old one that got into warranty, so they sent me a brand new one) and it works alright, I've installed Cydia from those .deb's that saurik released, almost nothing works on it, but whatever. Then, I shut off my phone because I have to, but when I turn back it on, it just stays there on the Apple logo, and does nothing from there on. Even connected to a computer, it still does nothing. I restored it, jailbroke it again and it happens again and again. What may be causing this?

Also, I don't know if it is iOS 8 or Pangu8, but my battery drains pretty quickly along the day, even with the parallax effect and app refreshing turned off... any ideas?

Do you have Touch ID or passcode enabled? If so, you have to do the workaround to fix it. I have it working fine.

My battery life is fine on my 6 Plus with the jailbreak.

I had the same issue, I went to reboot my phone and it got stuck in a boot loop. I restored and decided to wait until it's officially released for consumers so the bugs are worked out.

It's an iPhn 5, no Touch ID, but I do have passcode. So... you mean that shutting the phone off, rebooting it and being stuck at the Apple logo no matter what is an iOS 8 bug? And it has nothing to do with the jailbreak? 'Cause it seems that, now that I have removed the jailbreak, it doesn't do that, but I can be wrong, who knows.

BTW, removed jailbreak and battery life seemed to improve a little bit... before, it took just like 5 minutes while listening to music to drain 2 or 3% of the battery (not joking), and now (restored phone, no JB), on this precise moment, I've been listening to music for 30 minutes, and not a even 1%. So, my conclusion is that Pangu does indeed jailbreak your phone, but it may drain you battery life, at least it does that on mine. Unfortunately, my friends only have Android, so I don't have no one to compare to.

Hmmm... thanks, anyway.

Which is what I'm hoping for right now. Not really doubting anyone or hating, and absolutely not racist or anything, but a chinese jailbreak...? It does raise me some questions.
I just hope that just because a jailbreak is already available, the guys behind evasi0n and all other JB software just stop working and lay off until a new iOS update is released, but I doubt it, since most people will want a JB software that installs Cydia right away.

if you have passcode enabled that is your problem. All of the instructions say disable passcode. There is a bug in the current pangu 1.0.1 jailbreak that prevents you from using touch id and passcode lock.

:rolleyes: Why install a jailbreak (which is intended for developers but has been installed by noobs and scores kiddies hoping to steal apps) without reading about the 4 or 5 critical issues with it ?

After all, they are well known and widely discussed everywhere.

no idea how someone can figure out how to sign up to a site, find the right forum section and post but yet still can't do some basic reading and googling about all the initial issues about the jailbreak.

Well I can say that I have an iPhone 4S and I installed ios 8.1, ran the JB (pangu 1.0.1), installed the .debs, my apps and set everything up as I wanted. When I was done, even pull down my email and just turned the phone off and tried to turn it on again, I got stuck with the Apple logo. I didn't have any passcode or any other kind of lock. It just hung.
Did a complete restore and will wait for a release that is more stable and other cydia tweaks/apps are available.
Didn't have any problems running the jb and used the phone after the jailbreak. Even did a backup with no problem. I even turn the phone off and on when the steps mentioned it, like when jb was done to get the pangu icon or to get the cydia icon. But if I remember correctly I did the on/off when the phone was connected to the mac. Last time I turned it off and on, it wasn't connected. Just an observasion!

The OP clearly said he has passcode on, so his problem is clear cut. That is a KNOWN issue. Your problem may be that you installed an incompatible tweak/app - some tweaks have not been updated and are known to cause issues.

Well, first of all, don't throw stones without knowing your facts. I did research about the jailbreak, and read about it on at least 4 or 5 different sites before. I do not get involved with stuff I don't know well, and I can assure you, I did not see anything about passcodes and Touch IDs or whatever. And no, I'm not blind, I did read the entire articles, not a single mention of that.

Second, steal apps...? Really? What if I told that I want Cydia to install themes and tweaks which I like and may be useful to me? Not everyone is evil-minded, ok?

Third, do not try to be part of an elite that knows everything and shuns upon noobs. If I had a problem, you could have just explained it.

You really have a problem with people that need help and know less than you, do you?

That's what I'm gonna do, iOS 8 is still too fresh for a jailbreak. Better just wait.

Thanks, man. But I'll just wait for a more stable jailbreak release instead.

I will tell you with all certainty that if you actually did consult 4 or 5 sites about the jailbreak, it is impossible for me to believe that none of those 4 or 5 sites had any content about the two most glaring issues with this jailbreak version. When I mentioned these issues have been discussed everywhere, that was a factual statement !

And I did not accuse you of stealing apps, but sadly a large percentage of those who jailbreak do so to steal apps.

every site that deals with jailbreaks clearly instruct to have all passcodes disabled. you're either lying or reading up on fake jailbreak sites

There's at least a third option.. some may not be able to read.

Sorry, but I can guarantee you that. I did read about disabling passcodes during the jailbreak process, which I did, but nothing about bugs or anything. Then, I activated passcode again.

Dude, if I was lying, I'd probably be a douche that would not even asking for help, and I'd probably be rude. I'm trying to be polite, just asking for some help.

Yes, that's exactly the problem. Thanks for enlightening me.

Nytro either you aren't very bright or you truthfully didn't read up about this jailbreak, but you need to stop replying in this thread because you're beginning to blame other people for your own stupid mistakes.

I did a quick look and your problems are listed laterally everywhere I checked.

Who did I blame? I just defended my point, something that every normal person does.

But anyway... I think I know now why you people are not understanding at all my point of view... Let me explain: because the carrier in my country is a ******* money-stealing machine and not reliable at all, it took them 2 full months to send me a new phone through warranty. Before, I had updated once to iOS 7.0.0, jailbroke it, and I never updated it again (I had reasons) until I sent the phone into warranty. Between these two months, I never touched an iPhone again, nor had I been up to date with any JB news. My phone arrived precisely on 22 Oct., and what I did was simply look up for a jailbreak for iOS 8, and, again, I can assure you that in the jailbreak instructions I read for Pangu8 no one mentioned anything about a bug, I'm dead freaking serious. So, obviously, I did not know what the heck was going on, and so, from what I caught now (did a little more research), it is in fact in a lot of jailbreaking forums and pages, but since I installed it on the very first day, I did not know what was going on. I assumed everything was alright, and did not look it up again. I tried to look up the problem, but it did not seem listed anywhere; for Pangu, yeah, but not Pangu8, which I assumed would be different. Not knowing what to do, I did what I always do: go to a forum and ask for help.

I guess I owe you all an apology, but... you know, all of you could go a little more easy on new guys, you know? You make yourselves look like an elite. Thanks, anyway. :cool:

Well I did install 1 app which was ewifi and I did look through the list of apps and their state at the momentand that app was listed as working. I did 't install any other but Cydia Substrate. All the other tweaks/appsthat I used were marked as partial or not working so I decided to leave it at that and wait until everything settles down.
I've redone the JB, I love to test stuff, and just installed Openssh and Cydia. Haven't installed anything else. Gonna wait and see how Cydia tweaks/apps get along.

I have another iPhone 4s that has 7.0.4 JB and it runs fine and won't be changed until the other one works under 8.1 and JB. So I can test and test and test.... So if anyone needs a tester, I can help if need be. I am retired, been working with computers for over 44 years with research & development. Know most os:es from Dos 3, windows (since windows 286), OS/2 (have it running in a VM), Linux (most dialects) and OSx(Also running in a VM). Have most os:es running in VMs.
