Pangu announced the release of a new jailbreak tool for iOS 9.2-9.3.3. The tool was only available in Chinese language help when releasing but now you are access to English version as well. So now it is time Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 that was excitedly awaited to hear. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to jailbreak iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 with the new Pangu jailbreak tool. And it is recommended update iOS 9.3.3 before turn to jailbreak, if you still not and have no specific reason to stick to an older firmware.
Because this is a Windows-only jailbreak when it announced first, you needed a PC, or a Mac with either Bootcamp or a virtual machine running Windows to jailbreak your device. But now you can jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 with help of a Windows PC, Mac or else with Linux support.
Another thing we need to note before getting started is that this jailbreak only supports 64-bit iOS devices, so the iPhone 5 older models are officially out of support. It’s unknown if this will change in the future, but still we found no change.
The list of supported devices currently are:
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPod touch 6G
- iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2,
- iPad Pro
Those of you who have jailbroken your iOS 9.2-9.3.3 devices with the new Pangu jailbreak tool should know by now that it’s a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means you have to re-run the jailbreak tool every time you reboot your device, but it’s easier than one might think. But you may get confused if you had your previous time with a stable jailbreak like iOS 9-9.0.2.
In this piece, we’ll talk about how to reboot your semi-untethered jailbroken iOS 9.2-9.3.3 device properly so that Cydia works as expected after your device turns back on.
What is a Semi-untethered Jailbreak?
A semi-untethered jailbreak is a hybrid between an untethered jailbreak and a tethered jailbreak.
