How to Jailbreak iOS 9

Posted by in Questions & Answers

Jailbreaking is a common thing among iOS users. Now that iOS 9 has been released, it is unsurprising that there is already a jailbreak available. You can follow this guide to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod.

You must be running iOS 9, 9.0.1, or 9.0.2, and must have a Windows PC (or be running Windows on your Mac) to run the Pangu jailbreak utility. Because the jailbreak has only recently come out, you should remember that there are bugs that will come along with it. You can jailbreak your device by following these steps:

 

Step 1: Plug your iDevice into your computer, open iTunes and make a backup of your device. Make sure your backup is unencrypted or else you will run into an error later on.

Step 2: Go to Settings – iCloud, and disable Find My iPhone.

Step 3: Go to Settings – Passcode and Touch ID, and disable your Passcode and Touch ID.

Step 4: Turn off WiFi and enable Airplane mode.

Step 5: On your computer, go to www.Pangu.io and press download to download the Pangu jailbreak tool.

Step 6: Navigate to where you downloaded the program, right click the icon and press “Run as Administrator”, and agree to the prompt.

Step 7: Once Pangu recognizes your device, press Start then Already Backup.

Step 8: Let the tool do its thing, once your device reboots, unlock it and put it in airplane mode again.

Step 9: Once it appears, click the Pangu app on your phone, and when it asks you, allow access to your photos. The jailbreak takes advantage of an exploit in the photos.
