Jailbreak iOS 9.1 Tutorial (Windows & Mac)

The Chinese hacking crew “Pangu Team” released an updated version of its Pangu9 jailbreak tool for Windows (v1.3.0) and Mac OS X (v1.1.0) today. With the new tool, select users are now able to jailbreak iOS 9.1 as long as they are using a 64 bit device. If you have been waiting for an opportunity to jailbreak your device and haven’t updated to iOS 9.2.1 or any of the more recent versions of Apple’s mobile operating system, you’re in luck! A jailbreak solution for iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1 or iOS 9.3 has not surfaced yet, unfortunately. Here’s our iOS 9.1 jailbreak tutorial for the lucky bunch of users that are able to use it right now.

Right before Apple will be rolling out the final version of iOS 9.3 the Pangu Team decided to put out their updated jailbreak tool which now supports a range of devices and iOS versions from iOS 9.0 to iOS 9.1 on their official website. You can download the Pangu9 tool for Microsoft Windows in version 1.3.0 and for Mac OS X in version 1.1.0 right from Pangu’s very own servers, which are currently slightly busy but still reachable. If you need any help in getting the jailbreak to work, we suggest checking out our full jailbreak guide for iOS 9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 as the process is essentially identical.

Supported devices for the iOS 9.1 jailbreak by Pangu:

  • iPhone 5s and newer
  • iPad Air and newer
  • iPad mini 2 and newer

32 Bit devices such as the iPhone 5 will not work with this jailbreak. If you are running an older version of iOS, such as iOS 9.0 or iOS 9.0.2, you can still use the tool. Users running iOS 9.1 will not have any success with older devices and the current version of the tool.

In any case, please create a full backup in iTunes before applying any sort of jailbreak tool, as the process may lead to data loss and you having to recover your device.
