Pangu team has released a jailbreak for iOS 9.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The timing for this release is odd and unexpected as the current popular iOS release is iOS 9.2 while iOS 9.3 is in beta and on the verge of a release too.
The last jailbreak release by Pangu was for iOS 9.0, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 and the tool got several updates with bug fixes. This release, v1.3.0 for Windows and v1.1.0 for Mac, works with all 64 bit iOS devices with iOS 9.1 however those on iOS 9.0 – 9.0.2 can jailbreak 32 bit devices too. The iOS 9.1 vulnerability that the new update uses was patched in iOS 9.2 so this is the best shot at getting a jailbreak working until new bugs are discovered in iOS 9.2 or the upcoming iOS 9.3
To jailbreak iOS 9.1, simply download Pangu, run the app and follow the instructions. Make sure that you back up your device via iTunes to avoid any data loss. To avoid any issues, turn on airplane mode on your device, and disable passcode and “find my iPhone”. This will reduce the chance of any issues or jailbreak failures.
Pangu has also announced plans for jailbreak for the new Apple TV, scheduled to be released next week, which will only provide SSH access to users. It is aimed at ‘security researchers and jailbreak developers’ so it should not
Pangu jailbreak can be download from their official website. The download is around 75MB in size for both Windows and Mac.
