If you’re an active iFunbox user and have recently jailbreak iPhone/iPod touch/iPad running iOS 7.1 or iOS 7.1.1 with the latest Pangu Jailbreak, then I guess you have noticed that iFunbox is not working properly with Pangu JB. You may have also noticed that iFunbox doesn’t recognize the device as jailbroken. Also, it shows a Jailed status under the connected device in left sidebar. In such situations you’ll no longer be able to access the Raw File System from your Computer (Mac/Windows) over the USB cable.

Which means iFunbox will not show these folders. The Var folder, System, Library, cores, dev, lib, etc., folders. These are extremely necessary to interact deeply with your i-device. You’ll also not be able to find the “Cydia App Install” option under iFunbox after Pangu Jailbreak. This is one of the most important reason people use iFunbox. Just to Let you know, Cydia App Install is an iFunbox feature. This lets you install any .deb application directly onto your iPhone from any authorized computer.

Why iFunbox showing Jailed status after Pangu Jailbreak.

iFunbox Jailed Error iOS 7.1 Pangu Jailbreak

If you want to know the reason for such iFunbox Jailed error with iOS 7.1 and iOS 7.1.1 then read on.

Apple File Conduit (AFC) is a program through which Computer Application like iTunes, iPhoto, iTools etc., read and write files from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch over the USB cable.

After a successful evasi0n jailbreak this AFC program gets free and allow access to system files and folder like Var, root folder etc. But in cases of Pangu Jailbreak, the Apple File Conduit program remains untouched or may be partially touched which gives arise to this Jailed iFunbox error.

  1. works great thank you. you must also restart ifunbox if it was left running when you did the fix. It still says (jailed) even though the problem is actually fixed.

  2. I forgot my iphone password and wanted to delete it in /var folder.
    I can access cydia without me typing my password into my phone so what do i do now? please help!

    • Hi Penguin, Can you be more specific on which iPhone you are using. Based on each model and iOS versions, there are several ways to bypass the pass code.

  3. Make sure that Emulate Jailed iDevice is unchecked in the Help>Troubleshoot>Bottom second and it says Emulate Jailed iDevice

  4. Jailbroken ios 7.1.2, Restarted, it shows raw files but installation fails (ifunbox 1.1.02 classic for windows) with code Failed (-402620415).

  5. Well i followed the guide verbatum, but even though ifunbox detects the jailbreak i still cannot make any changes to any of my apps like replacing files. Please help asap.

  6. Now my iPhone 4 iOS 7.1.2 is running with I-Funbox.
    Apple File Conduit “2″ is thw magic key !
    Be carefull, only with I-FunBox version 1.7 0747 0603 beta

  7. I got it to work. Then after two days or so, it stopped showing the folders again. I have afc2add and now I can’t access anything. I have reinstalled and resprung a bunch of times, to find nothing.

  8. My 4S running on 7.1.2 had the same issue. It worked for me. Thanks a ton! I am now able to transfer loads of my movies downloaded from Movie Box 2 🙂 which were eating almost entire of my phone memory!

  9. Worked for me thanks with the Pangu jailbreak on ios 7.1.2. Had to reboot the device though as a respring wasn’t enough.

    • You want to edit files of a system application or an user application?
      For system application : i-Funbox > i-Funbox classic > System application > double click the app you want to edit.

      For User application : i-Funbox > i-Funbox classic > user application > double click the app you want to edit.

  10. Does this work for a itouch 5th gen ios 7.1.2? I tried to add the apple file conduit 2 and respringing the device but ifunbox still says that it is jailed.

      • Hmm… I’m probably doing something wrong 🙁 since I never tried this before. I tried reinstalling AFC2 for a while now. I tried respringing and restarting the itouch but the it’s still appearing as jailed.

      • Hmmm… I’ve tried removing and reinstalling AFC2 but it’s still not working. I already restarted my computer and the itouch but nothing still.
