PanGu Jailbreak

Team Pangu is known for the multiple releases of jailbreak tools for iOS 7 and iOS 8. They also released two PanGu jailbreak tools designed to install Cydia on iOS 9. One for 64-bit devices on iOS 9.2 - 9.3.3, one for iOS 9 - 9.0.2 on 32-bit, and iOS 9.0 - 9.1 on 64bit.

What is PanGu?

PanGu jailbreak for iOS 9 was the first successful tool that allowed the installation of Cydia on all 32-bit and 64-bit devices. At first, there was a PanGu Windows application that supported iOS 9 up to iOS 9.0.2 running a 32-bit system, and iOS 9.0 up to iOS 9.1 for 64-bit devices.

When you used the Pangu9 jailbreak it installed an untether for iOS 9 - 9.1 making the jailbreak work even after restart. There was no need to re-jailbreak your device if you forget to charge it on time. PanGu for Windows and PanGu for Mac worked with iOS firmware up to 9.1.

To jailbreak your device it was required to connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer through a USB cable. PanGu installed on the device a mobile app allowing to proceed with the jailbreak and Cydia installation. The final version of PanGu for Windows was 1.3.2 and for Mac 1.1.1.

Team Pangu developed a different approach for jailbreaking iOS 9.2. PanGu app, like most modern jailbreaks today, was packed into an IPA file. Once NvwaStone IPA was sideloaded on a supported device, the user could easily jailbreak iOS 9.2 by running the click-to-jailbreak app.

This time PanGu was able to jailbreak iOS 9.2 up to iOS 9.3.3 installed on 64-bit devices. Unfortunately for the jailbreak community, the new iOS 9.2 release was secured against the untether making Cydia and all installed tweaks stop working after a reboot.

In order to change the un-jailbroken state and use Cydia and tweaks after a reboot, it's required to re-jailbreak iOS 9 with the installed PanGu app. The tool automatically detects if your device model and installed iOS version are supported. Make a full backup of the device before jailbreak.

Team Pangu included also an option "Use embedded certificate effective until April 2017" into their jailbreak. Once selected, Pangu 9 will install an app that is signed by a revoked certificate and you will not need to reinstall the Pangu app. Of course, this feature doesn't work in 2022.

There is also a big chance that when you have an older device running iOS 9 it has installed iOS 9.3.5 or iOS 9.3.6. Pangu doesn't support this firmware, but there are other jailbreak tools that do. To jailbreak the latest iOS 9 use Phoenix or p0laris jailbreaks available on our website.

Just as a curiosity, "Pangu" is the name of "the first living being and the creator of all in some versions of Chinese mythology".
