Pangu Jailbreak 9.0.2, How To Avoid ALL Issues
- If your iDevice is running 9.0.2 or an earlier version of iOS 9 and was updated via Apple’s default OTA (over-the-air) update feature found in the Settings app, you must complete the below section marked as ‘Important Steps’.
- Confirm that you have a Windows-based PC - as of now, Pangu only supports Windows. If you own a Mac on OS X, we advise creating a virtual machine, setting up Bootcamp, which is native to Mac, or borrowing a friend’s Windows PC.
Important Steps: OTA iOS 9.0.x users are required to restore by first initiating a backup inside iTunes, restoring to iOS 9.0.2 (assuming 9.0.2 is the latest firmware - as of writing this article, it is. Don’t update once 9.1 is released), proceeding with the jailbreak and, finally, you can restore from your iTunes backup to retrieve all personal data.
How to Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 with Pangu
Without further ado, we can proceed with the final set of instructions to deliver the iOS 9.0.2 Untethered jailbreak for your iPhone, iPad or iPod!
Step 1. In addition to downloading Pangu9 1.2.0, you will also need to obtain iTunes 12.3 from the below download section to ensure that you obtain genuine copies of both pieces of software for iOS 9.0.2.
Step 2. Disable Find my iDevice (the ‘iDevice’ is dynamic based on whether you own an iPhone, iPad or iPod) inside of the iCloud segment of Settings, but stay signed in to iCloud. From there, proceed to disable ‘Passcode Lock & Touch ID’ features, as well as ‘Auto Lock’ (inside Settings > General).
Step 3. Before proceeding, enter Airplane mode on your device via iOS 9’s Control Center, click the ‘Continue’ button inside Pangu’s graphical user interface, followed by ‘Already Backup’ to proceed with the jailbreak process.
Step 4. When prompted, you’ll be required to toggle on Airplane mode for a second time. After running through several stages, Pangu will then ask you to open the Pangu app on your iOS 9.0.2 device and allow permissions to Photos. Beyond Cydia, absolutely nothing will be installed on your device, this is just how Pangu was able to defeat iOS 9’s security measures.
Congratulations and Happy Jailbreaking!
Following the final reboot of your iOS 9 device, you’ll be greeted with an incredibly welcomed sight: Cydia! Simply launch the app and refer to the below note.
Important Note: When opening Cydia for the first time, allow the app to properly reorganize the Filesystem on iOS 9.0.2. While this stage is significantly faster than it ever was on iOS 8, if interrupted, it may force you into an iTunes restore.
Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 on Mac OS X
For those of you who are running Mac OS X, you can utilize Pangu for Mac to jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 untethered. While the steps are virtually identical to the ones we provided above for Pangu on Windows, the above video will assist you in the jailbreak process.
