Pangu iOS 9 Jailbreak

We’ve some great news for jailbreakers. The Pangu team has just released iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak, making it the first jailbreak released for iOS 9, and also for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

According to the website, Pangu9 will work with all the iOS 9 compatible devices:

  • iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4s
  • iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3 and iPad 2
  • iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, 1st gen iPad mini
  • 6th generation iPod touch, 5th generation iPod touch

It is currently available only for Windows. Pangu team has provided the following details on their website:

1. Preparations for jailbreak.

Please backup your device before using Pangu. Although we have successfully tested Pangu with a number of devices, we strongly suggest you backup your data via iTunes before jailbreak.

In order to increase the success rate, please switch your device to airplane mode, and disable passcode and “find my iPhone” functions in system setting.

2. Unable to jailbreak devices that are upgraded via OTA

The firmware upgraded via OTA affects Pangu 9 a lot and usually causes Pangu 9 to fail. If you have failed many times, please try to download the latest firmware and restore your iOS devices.

In addition, Pangu itself now provides a functionality to easily restore iOS devices and automatically complete the activation and jailbreak, through a simple one-click.

3. the warning of “Disk is almost full”.

This is because during the jailbreaking process, Pangu will write some important files into the system partition and lead to this warning. However, it will not affect your device. If Cydia is installed, it will re-adjust the system files on its first launch and then the warning would disappear.

4. Suggestions after several failed attempts

1. Please switch to the airplane mode, try again.

2. Please reboot both your iOS devices as well as your computer, and try again.

3. Please use the restore functionality in Pangu to restore your device, and try again.

With the imminent release of iOS 9.1, the release of the jailbreak is intriguing, as it gives Apple the opportunity to fix the exploits before releasing iOS 9.1 to the public. It is quite possible that Apple has already fixed the exploits used in the iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak in iOS 9.1 beta, so the Pangu team decided to release it now.

Update 1:

It looks like the Pangu team has used the exploit used by iH8sn0w to jailbreak iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2. Last month, he had demoed an untethered iOS 9 jailbreak, but had said he did not have any plans to release a jailbreak.

Update 2:
