iOS enthusiasts and jailbreak fans were surprised when a group of security reseachers from China called PanGu Team entered the iOS jailbreaking scene. This team was able to see the vulnerabilities of iOS 7.1 which other hackers and security researchers didn't. These vulnerabilities weren't patched by Apple even with the release of  iOS 7.1.2 so iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.2 were managed to be jailbroken by the team. Until now, jailbreaking iOS 7.1. up to iOS 7.1.2 is still possible.
