Apple iOS 9 Gets Untethered Jailbroken By Pangu Team

A great news for jailbreaking community, the latest version of Apple iOS 9 has now been untethered jailbroken. The Chinese jailbreak team "Pangu" took everybody by surprise by releasing the first untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 9.0,9.0.1 and 9.0.2 within a short period of their final version release. It is also worth mentioning that the Pangu team decided not to take the $1 Million bounty for iOS 9 jailbreaks announced by Zerodium and instead released it for public.

The jailbreak seems to lack proper refinement as of now and is causing many users "Boot Loop of Death" (BLoD).

Apple iOS 9 Jailbreak

Jailbreaking on a Windows computer

You do not need to have your iPhone backed up on the computer with which you jailbreak, but making a backup prior to updating is highly recommended

  1. Download the jailbreak tool from the Pangu Website: (Click the download link near the bottom of the page; this tool is currently only available on Windows).
  2. Backup your device on iTunes (Use the lastest version of iTunes).
  3. While that is downloading, go into the Settings app and disable Find My iPhone (iCloud > Find My iPhone, switch off and enter your iCloud password).
  4. Turn off Passcode ('Settings' > 'Touch ID & Passcode' > Turn Passcode Off)
  5. Turn your device to airplane mode (Settings app > Airplane Mode) (Do this AFTER turning off Find My iPhone, otherwise Find My iPhone will not turn off and it will act as though there is an incorrect password)
  6. Run the jailbreak tool you downloaded in step 1 (named Pangu9_vx.y.z.exe, where x, y and z is any natural number and x >= 1. Known versions: Pangu9_v1.0.0.exe, Pangu9_v1.0.1.exe).
  7. Plug in your device to your PC.
  8. The jailbreak utility should detect your iDevice. Click the "Start" button.
  9. Click the "Already Backup" button since you have already backed up your device in step 2.
  10. Let the jailbreak utility continue.
  11. At around 55%, your device should restart. When it restarts, you will need to unlock your device and re-enable Airplane Mode.
  12. The jailbreak utility will continue, and at around 75% it will prompt you to unlock and run the Pangu app. Open the Photos app first, then launch the Pangu app. If you can't find the app the try searching your device for "Pangu".
  13. In the app, click the "Accept" button, and then click 'allow' on the popup that follows. (Yes, the tool needs access to your photos!)
  14. Wait for the jailbreak utility to finish.
  15. When the utility is done, go to the last page on the homepage your device, and Cydia should be there.
  16. Run Cydia! You now have jailbroken your iOS 9 device.
  17. Do not forget to turn Find My iPhone back on!
