    Pangu (or some group claiming to be Pangu) supposedly came out with a semi-jailbreak for iOS 8.2 up that doesn't seem to do much.

    Sorry if this has already been discussed!

    From farther on down the page…

    There are some people on 8.2/8.3 that badly want a jailbreak. They are willing to accept something like this until a real untethered jailbreak comes along.

    It's legit. Edit. See post below. Not legit.

    I doubt very much that it is legit.

    Different websites:
    http://en.pangu.io (official pangu)
    http://pangu8.com/83.html (alleged semi-JB)

    Also no mention on the official site, nor on the official twitter of Pangu:
    https://twitter.com/PanguTeam

    Nothing on reddit accept a warning that it is fake:
    http://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/33yvjh/about_the_83_semi_jailbreak/

    Nothing from the leading Dev's, not even from i0n1c, which would probably be the first to comment (or condemn) especially if it concerns Pangu.

    Also it involves installing a profile, which is a security risk if unsure from whom it is or what is does.

    All-in-all: Stay Away!

    Hmmm…well I've been fooled then.

    Thanks for the observations. I'll pay more attention to things next time. The website has the same colors and layout so I didn't bother to look at the web address. Trickery.

    My bad.
