It appears that after the Chinese took control of the jailbreak game, Apple is having a harder time keeping their mobile OS jailbreak-free. The PanGu team has released their latest update of their jailbreak tool, PanGu 9. PanGu 9 jailbreaks any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1, and iOS 9.0.2. This includes Apple’s latest iPhones, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
To jailbreak your iOS device running iOS 9, your device has to be running one of three iOS firmware previously mentioned: iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1, iOS 9.0.2. Now you’ll need to disable some features from your device and follow some procedures in order to maximize the success rate. This includes:
- Backing up your device via iTunes or iCloud. If something bad happens during the jailbreak, which rarely happens, you’ll not lose any data or information from your device.
- Turn on Airplane Mode
- Disable Find My iPhone and Passcode
- Do a full restore to your device using iTunes. This is not necessary, but will greatly reduce any problem during the jailbreak process
After you have completed all of the steps above, you’ll be ready to jailbreak your device with no problem following the steps below.
- Download Pangu Jailbreak from Pangu.io
- Connect your device to your computer, close iTunes if it opens
- Launch the downloaded Pangu Jailbreak Tool
- Once the program detects your device, hit the Start button, then proceed to select the “Already Backup” option
- As the program progresses, it will ask you to perform some task such as unlocking the phone, turning on Airplane Mode again, and launching the new installed Pangu icon on your device’s homescreen. Keep an eye on the Pangu Jailbreak tool on your computer and make sure to follow each instructions as they show up.
- Once the program is finishes the whole jailbreak process, you will finally have your Cydia icon on your device’s homescreen.
No Cydia after jailbreak
An infamous problem with this tool is that after the jailbreak process is done on the computer, Cydia does not get installed on your device. To fix this problem, if it happened to your, all you have to do is redo the jailbreak process from the beginning. Now, when the jailbreak tool ask you to open the Pangu app on your device, open the Photo app as well. Carry on normally from there.
