Pangu Team About iOS 8.2 Jailbreak And Received Criticism

Are you interested in thoughts of Pangu Team about iOS 8.2 jailbreak and criticism that they received? Here is some portion of information about it.

After Pangu team from China first released its jailbreak last June, it has become the subject of criticism from other hacking community members. The team has gathered together all its thoughts and persuasions and posted on their blog.This lengthy post Pangu team has addressed some of the vilification it has received.

In their post Pangu team wanted to clarify the rumors, discriminations, and vilifications on the team.
The team wrote that they did not want to waste time and hoped that eventually all useless things would stop after a while in response to the criticism they has received especially from famed iOS hacker Stefan Esser (i0n1c).

The first rumor is connected with $1 million sponsorship, that is supposed to receive shortly after the evasi0n 7 jailbreak had been released.

The team said that their sponsorship is mainly used to support the development of jailbreak tools, cover the cost of software testing, and facility the download servers. They need to test all hardware models from iPhone 4s to iPhone 6 Plus, from iPad 2 to iPad Air, all iOS versions from 7.1 to 8.1 to make the untethered jailbreak tool reliable. The sponsorship is also used for buying all kinds of iOS devices for testing. But they say it certainly hasn’t been $1 million.

Pangu also rejected reports that they bought vulnerabilities for their Pangu7 jailbreak. They persuaded that they hadn't done it never and ever. They used kernel information leaks discussed in Stefan Esser’s training course that were already introduced to public. That's why they could save their own vulnerabilities for future jailbreaks.

They replaced the vulnerability with our own, right after receiving Stefan Esser’s criticism. There was another suggestion that The Pangu team used stolen/leaked enterprise certificates. In Pangu 7 and Pangu 8, the Chinese team utilized expired enterprise certificates to initial the jailbreaking process. Some of jailbreak fans donated their own expired enterprise certificates to the team. While enterprise certificate costs only a few hundred dollars they don’t see any reason to steal them.

At the bottom of the post Pangu put feedback to the community with their own contributions. Getting many useful knowledge from previous jailbreaks and other hackers, and they want to share their new developments to the community by presenting their techniques at events like Syscan360 2014, POC 2012, and CanSecWest 2015.

There were some points admitted about iOS 8.2 jailbreak Pangu Team. They wrote that they cooperated with Cydia creator Saurik in enabling the platform to work on iOS 8.

We are grateful and proud of being a member of the jailbreak community. They are glad that Pangu 7 and Pangu 8 were downloaded by many millions of times across the globe. They belive that the jailbreak community should not judge a work for its developers’ race, creed, color, or religion.
