  • [HOW TO] Jailbreak iOS 9.1 using PanGu Jailbreak
    PanGu team released a new version of their tool to jailbreak iOS 9.1 yesterday. Here’s how to guide on how to jailbreak your device running on iOS 9.1 using Pangu jailbreak.



    [HOW TO]

    Follow these steps to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on iOS 9.1 – iOS 9 using Pangu jailbreak.

    Step 1: Download the latest version of Pangu jailbreak for Mac or Windows from our Download Pangu Jailbreak page. Pangu jailbreak is a free jailbreak tool. It should not prompt you to enter a registration code.

    Download links:

    Pangu 9 1.3.0 for Windows [Official]
    Pangu 9 1.1.0 for Mac [Official]

    Step 2: Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to your computer using the USB cable.

    Step 3: Take a backup of your device using the latest version of iTunes. After you’ve taken the backup, close iTunes. Also close Xcode if you’ve it open.

    Step 4: Disable Passcode from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode, turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone, and enable Airplane mode.

    Step 5: Launch Pangu Jailbreak you had downloaded in step 1.

    Mac users: If you get an error message saying “Pangu9 can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer”, then right click on the Pangu9 icon, and click on Open in the menu options, then click on Open button.

    Windows users: Please launch the Pangu application that you had downloaded in step 1 as an Administrator. Right Click on the Pangu exe and select the “Run as Administrator” option.

    Step 6: Pangu will take some time to detect your device. Once that is done, click on the blue Start button.

    Step 6: Click on Already Backup button to proceed to the jailbreak.

    Step 7: At around 55%, it will reboot your device.

    Step 8: At around 65%, it will then prompt you to unlock your device, and enable AirPlane mode again.

    Step 9: At around 75%, Pangu will prompt you to unlock your device and run the Pangu app. Launch the Pangu app from the Home screen. If you can’t find the app the try searching your device for “Pangu”. It also installs the WWDC app but you can ignore it. The Pangu and the WWDC app will be removed when your device is successfully jailbroken.

    Step 10: Next, it will prompt you to tap on the Accept button on your iOS device, to give access to the Photos app. Then tap on Allow on the popup that follows to allow Pangu to access your Photos.

    Step 11: Wait for the progress bar to complete. Your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch will reboot.

    Step 12: Once the process completes, the Pangu tool will tell you that your device is “Already Jailbroken”. You should see the Cydia icon on the last page of the home screen on your device. Please don’t forget to disable AirPlane mode before launching Cydia. Cydia will take some time “Preparing filesystem” when you launch it for the first time. It will exit after it is done, and respring your device.

      I wonder if we'll see a jailbreak for iOS 9.3 before a jailbreak for iOS 10. Either way, i'm good on 9.0.2 right now.

      I'm confused: how can this work on iOS 9.0.1?

      That doesn't seem to make sense if you need to be on 9.1 to jailbreak and there is no way to upgrade to 9.1.

      Help?

      It’s for people who never updated to 9.2.

      Pangu 9 has always been able to jailbreak 9.0-9.0.1. They added the ability to jailbreak 9.1 now too. That's all.

      9.0.1 Jailbreak is and was already available.

      PanGu works on 9.0 right through to 9.1 as of yesterday's update.

      Not possible unfortunately. You will be updated to 9.2.1 (latest firmware) current as of this post.
