Looking to jailbreak iOS 9 on your iPhone or any other iOS device? Look no further, we have you covered with the most informative guide on how to jailbreak. Support will be offered in the comments below.
Steps to Jailbreak iOS 9
The first step to our path down iOS 9 freedom is to find your version of iOS 9. You can find that under:
Settings > About > Version : 9.x.x
The x placement holders are where your version is.
If you have version 9.0 – 9.1, our guide will have you covered. 9.1 and higher versions are currently unavailable at this time. Check back for a stable release.
Now that we’ve verified your version, we can move forward with the jailbreak tool of choice these days, Pangu.io. There is also TaiG, the alternative jailbreak tool, which we will cover in a future guide. For now, lets stick with the more popularly used package.
Download Pangu for Windows – Version:1.2.0 Size:71.3MB
Download Pangu for Mac – Version:1.0.0 Size:72MB
Back-up your iOS
Now that we have the Pangu jailbreak tool downloading, we are going to need to make sure we have up-to-date back-ups of our iOS device(s). Start by going into your cloud settings and verifying that the latest back-up includes all changes. If not, manually “back up now.” You wouldn’t want to lose anything should there be an issue in the jailbreak process.
Do not only depend on your iCloud back up. Your iCloud may not have everything in the archives, based on how you have it setup. It is highly recommended that you back up your iPhone or iPad with iTunes as well before moving forward.
Pangu developers recommend that you not only back up your device, but to also turn off your pin code, Touch ID, Find My iPhone and put it in Airplane mode in order to increase your success rate. Don’t worry, you can turn this all back on after you’ve completed the jailbreak process.
Turn off Touch-ID and Passcode:
Settings > Touch-ID & Passcode > Toggle off both
Turn off Find My iPhone
Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone > Toggle off
Turn airplane mode on
Fastest way is to slide from the bottom of the screen and toggle the airplane icon. Otherwise, simply go:
Settings > Airplane Mode > Toggle off
We promise you, these steps are not just to annoy you. In fact they are to help save you the headache of a failed jailbreak attempt. The hard part is now behind us.
Run Pangu 9 Jailbreak
We’re almost to jailbreak mecca. You’re going to need to have your iPhone or iPad synced with a USB cable to your Windows or Mac OS. For Windows users, make sure to run as administrator.
Mac users may need to enable “Allow apps downloaded from anywhere,” located under:
System Preferences > Security & Privacy >Allow apps downloaded from anywhere
Once launched, you will get the warnings of backing up. If you’ve done the steps above correctly, you should have a start button available to push. Go ahead. Don’t be bashful.
Once the process is started, you will get some messages along the way. Following a restart, you will be asked to slide to unlock your iOS device and open the pangu app. From there it will complete and reboot. And with all steps followed and a little luck, you should now see Cydia, your gateway to jailbreak apps. If not try, try again. It did take me a second attempt to be succesful.
