1. Download Pangu 9 for Windows or Mac OS X
The first thing you have to do before you can actually jailbreak your device is download the latest version of Pangu. To do that, you can head over to this link to download the tool on your Windows machine or this link to download the tool on your Mac OS X machine.
2. Prepare Your iOS Device
The first thing you should always do before jailbreaking is back up your device. That way, if anything goes wrong, you can always restore to your most recent working condition. You can use iCloud, or you can use iTunes (recommended).
Pangu needs your iOS device to have Touch ID and any passcode you have set to be turned OFF; Find my iPhone also needs to be turned OFF. You can turn them back on after the jailbreak. To do this, go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode > turn off the top three green sliders, and Settings > iCloud > Find My iPhone > Turn off the top green slider. You will also want to enable Airplane Mode before you jailbreak. If you don't follow these steps, you're going to experience problems trying to jailbreak, so play it safe, and go ahead and follow these steps before you attempt this jailbreak.
3. Launch the Pangu Jailbreak Application
You're going to want to right click on the Pangu jailbreak application icon and select "Run as Administrator" to open the application. On Windows 10, you may need to trust the application to open it beforehand:
The application should auto-detect your iOS 9 device if it's plugged in, otherwise it'll tell you to plug in a compatible iOS device.
4. Start the Jailbreak Process
Pangu will remind you to turn off your passcode, sign out of Find My iPhone, and enable Airplane Mode one last time:
The jailbreak process will then begin:
The iOS device will restart, and you'll have to turn Airplane Mode back on again and then unlock the device again:
Pangu 9 will install a Pangu application on your Home Screen. The Pangu application on your Windows computer will instruct you to launch that application and follow the on-screen instructions on your iOS device:
On your iOS device, you will be asked to tap on the Start button, and then grant the application access to your Photos library (it's a part of the exploitation process, so please allow it):
Once you do, Pangu on your Windows machine will start injecting more jailbreak stuff into your iOS device:
Finally, the jailbreak will complete:
You should now see the Cydia application icon on your Home Screen. Launch it, and as usual, Cydia will load some data, and then your device will respring:
Afterwards, you can launch Cydia again, and bam! You have a jailbroken iOS 9 device!
