Jailbreak is still available if your iPhone and iPad keep on iOS 9.1, the famous jailbreak team pangu just released iOS 9.1 untethered jailbreak few days ago. However, some users did not go smoothly in the jailbreak process.
Many users encountered a thorny issue that the iPhone now stuck with Apple logo boot loop after using the latest Pangu iOS 9.1 jailbreak. The issue has been correlated by veteran iOS developer Stefan Essar, who goes by the alias i0n1c in the following tweet:
“@qwertyoruiop I am stating facts. Pangu9 devices go into non recoverable boot loops after kernel panics. This happened to a lot with 0day”
Well, then why the device going into boot loop? From what I can understand, the Pangu jailbreak uses two racing conditions, one during the jailbreak and second when booting up. It’s the racing condition on boot that is likely triggering kernel panic, sending the device into endless boot loop of sorts.
However pangu team did not bring a valid patch in a new update, since we can use some conventional solutions to address this issue temporarily. Following these instructions here or some workarounds on how to fix the problem, you can really get rid of such loop holes
How To Get Out Of Apple Logo Boot loop After Pangu iOS 9.1 Jailbreak
Restart your device normally, Just Hold down the power button until your device is powered off. Now wait for 2-3 minutes and then turn your device back on. Most probably your Apple logo boot loop issue will be fixed and if not move on next page.
Long time iOS users will know that most of the issues in jailbroken as well as stock iOS devices can be fixed just by doing a hard reset. Force a restart is done by pressing and holding the buttons of start and rest at the same time to see the apple. It is important not release the buttons until you see the block or, otherwise, just be putting out and restating normally. You follow the steps below to do a hard reset on your device:
- Hold down power and home/Touch ID buttons until the device turns off.
- Now turn on the device normally by holding down the power button and when you see the Applo logo on the screen, try pressing volume up/down buttons.
- Repeat the above steps until the device boots back normally. Give it at least four to five tries.
In some rare cases, you may have to leave the device unattended as is while it boot loops itself for a few hours and see if it comes back to life.
If your device hasn’t been recovered by now, you will need to flash it to the latest stable firmware, iOS 9.2.1. Since your device is in a boot loop, you won’t be able to restore it normally. To restore it via iTunes, follow these steps:
Step 1: Hold Down Power and Home button until the device powers down.
Step 2: While pressing the Home button, connect your iOS device to the computer. Your device should power up displaying the iTunes logo along with a data cable. If you see this visual, that means your device has entered Recovery Mode successfully.
Step 3: The device will show up in iTunes in Recovery Mode. Now, press the Restore iPhone button to restore your device to the stable firmware. This process will wipe all the data on your iOS device. Now, iOS 9.2.1 will be downloaded onto your computer and flashed onto your device.
The process will take about 10 minutes, following which your device will be completely recovered and functional. And that’s it. Take this jailbreak as a lesson: Never try out a new jailbreak until a couple of days after the release when all the bugs have been discovered.
#Update: The Pangu Team has acknowledged the boot loop issue and has tweeted out the following fix:
For those suffering “boot loop”, please try reboot the device or just wait for enough time. We are testing and trying to make it more stable
