Today, Apple released iOS 9.1 to the general public, which in turn patched the new Untethered Pangu iOS 9 – 9.0.2 Jailbreak. In light of that rather glaring fact, I’ve opted to create this new tutorial to assist those who either accidentally updated to iOS 9.1 or who received new devices running the latest firmware in the process of downgrading 9.1 to 9.0.2. With that said, keep in mind that this guide is time sensitive, meaning once Apple stops signing iOS 9.0.2, it will no longer be possible to downgrade to the firmware.
Again, to reiterate, this tutorial will aid you when downgrading iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.0.2 in order to achieve an Untethered iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak on the following devices: iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 4S, Apple’s A8X iPad Air 2, the iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, original iPad Air, the Retina iPad mini 2, original iPad mini, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and the 5th and 6th generation iPod touch models.
iOS 9.0.2 Signing Window
Before you continue onward with this tutorial and download iOS 9.0.2, as mentioned above, once Apple stops signing iOS 9.0.2 (currently, as of writing this article, they’re signing both iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.0.2), downgrades will no longer be possible and the only restorable firmware in iTunes will be iOS 9.1.
Finally, it’s highly recommended that you watch my above video in its entirety to ensure the success of your iOS 9.1 downgrade to 9.0.2 and, ultimately, your jailbreak.
How to Downgrade iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.0.2
Step 1. Confirm that you’ve downloaded all of the required components for this tutorial, being your device’s corresponding 9.0.2 IPSW file and iTunes, from the download section found below.
Step 2. Disable ‘Find My iDevice’ inside of the iCloud segment of the Settings app to ensure you can properly restore and launch iTunes to verify that your device has been recognized successfully.
Step 3. Depending on the OS of your computer, you’ll be required to hold down the Shift or Alt (option) key on your keyboard; use Shift for Windows or Alt for Mac OS X. Left lick ‘Restore’ while holding down one of said keys, point the iTunes popup at your device’s 9.0.2 IPSW and confirm the restore.
Urgent Note: Currently, Apple is signing iOS 9.0.2, once that changes this note will be revised to reflect that.
Congratulations, after having following three simple steps, you’ve successfully Downgraded your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to iOS 9.0.2 and you’re ready to Jailbreak via Pangu (use this tutorial to do so)!
How to Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 after Downgrading iOS 9.1
Remember to utilize this loophole while Apple is still signing iOS 9.0.2 to ensure that you can Jailbreak on iOS 9 sooner rather than having to wait until a Jailbreak team issues a new utility at some point in the unforeseen future.
