How to Jailbreak iOS 9.1 Using Pangu v1.3

How to Jailbreak iOS 9.1 Using Pangu v1.3

Pangu team just released a new jailbreak for iOS 9.1, which is obviously a bit late for the majority of jailbreakers, as present most users already upgraded their device to iOS 9.2.1, and shortly before, the team had suggested user to upgrading their device to iOS 9.2.1 as soon as possible, to fix some serious flaws and bugs.

But if your device still running on iOS 9.1 or earlier version, and want to get a untethered jailbreak right now, then download the new released jailbreak tool Pangu v1.3.0 for Windows and Mac to start jailbreaking.

As before, the whole jailbreak process is very simple. But before the start, you’d better take a look at the following precautions.

1. Backup

You’d better back up all personal data before following these steps, just using the latest version of iTunes to backup the data. After the backup, close iTunes and Xcode if you’ve it open.

2. Disable Touch ID and turn off Find My iPhone

Disable Passcode from Settings > Touch ID & Passcode, turn off Find my iPhone from Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone, and enable Airplane mode.

Some issues you may encounter

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
