In this quick guide we will give you a step-by-step instruction on how to win back freedom for your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. We are deeply concerned that people do not see the problem of the proprietary operating systems. We are absolutely sure that operating systems must be opened for the end users; only this way our personal information will be under our own control.
The team of Chinese developers Pangu managed to create a working “on demand” jailbreak, an unusual term when it comes to jailbreaking. The jailbreak can be easily removed simply by rebooting or switching off/on the device.
This jailbreak works only with the iOS versions starting from iOS 9.2. up to iOS 9.3.3
Because it is currently compatible with 64-bit devices only, this jailbreak is compatible with the following devices: iPhone 5s, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 und iPod touch 6G.
Before jailbreaking it is important to create a roll-back plan. Please back up your iDevice so as not to get any risks of losing your data in case jailbreak fails.
Install the latest iTunes version and back up your device with the iTunes or use CopyTrans Shelbee to back up the iDevice without iTunes
Let’s jailbreak with Pangu
You might be asked to enter your Apple ID and password. To stay safe, create a new Apple ID and use it instead of your real one.
- You have administrative rights on your Windows PC
- You have Apple ID
- You disabled your passcode and “find My iPhone” service on your iDevice
Now you are ready to start:
Step 1: Visit Pangu Jailbreak page to download 25PP helper installer, then start the package installer
Step 2: When the tool starts, click the circle button in the middle of the screen.
Step 3: Connect your device to the PC using a USB cable and start PP icon on your desktop.
Step 4: If Pangu recognizes your your device, click the green button to continue.
You might be asked to enter captcha or enter your Apple ID and password. To stay safe, create a fake Apple ID and use it instead of your real one.
Step 5: Once the installation is completed, go to Settings, General, Device Management and open the Pangu developer profile or the one that you’ve entered in step 4. Click the “Trust” button.
Step 6: Run the PP Jailbreak app and accept push notifications.
Step 7: Tap the circle button in the middle of the screen. You can uncheck the little box below the circle button to prevent PP Assistant from being installed on your device.
Step 8: Lock your device manually so that the jailbreak process starts. You will receive a notification once the jailbreak is completed successfully and Cydia starts to install. If you see a “Storage Almost Full” notification, simply ignore it.
Step 9: Do not unlock your device until everything is completed. Wait until it reboots automatically.
Step 10: Next, it will prompt you to tap the “Accept” button on your iOS device, to give access to the Photos app. Then tap “Allow” on the popup windows to grant Pangu access to your Photos.
Step 11: Wait until the process completes. Your iDevice will reboot automatically.
Step 12: In Pangu tool will see that your device is “Already Jailbroken”. Please, make sure that Cydia icon is available on the last page of the home screen on your device. Don’t forget to disable AirPlane mode before launching Cydia App. Cydia will be “Preparing filesystem” on the first start. Cydia will exit after it and respring your iDevice.
