How To Jailbreak iOS 9 With Pangu
- Backup your device and connect it to your computer via USB.
- Disable Find My iPhone via Settings → iCloud → Find My iPhone.
- Disable Passcode and Touch ID via Settings → Touch ID & Passcode. Enable Airplane mode via Control Center.
- Download the Pangu jailbreak tool for iOS 9.
- Start the Pangu jailbreak by clicking the Start button and click Already Backup when prompted. (Your iPhone will reboot and Pangu will ask you to put your iPhone back into Airplane mode. Once you do this, it will continue the jailbreak. After some time, the Pangu tool will request that you open the Pangu app on the iPhone’s Home screen.)
- Once the Pangu app is run, it will ask you to allow access to your Photo Library.
- Tap the ‘Accept’ button on the Pangu screen to continue. Tap the OK button on the “Pangu Would Like to Access Your Photos” pop-up box.
- Your iPhone will reboot again.
- Once you reboot, disable Airplane mode, and run the Cydia app.
Congratulations, your iPhone is jailbroken. What jailbreak tweaks will you install first?
Note: You must be running iOS 9. This tutorial is for Windows-only, since the Pangu tool is a Windows executable. You can run a Windows virtual machine on your Mac if you wish to jailbreak iOS 9 on a Mac. This jailbreak should work for any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch capable of running iOS 9. That includes the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
