This guide will assist you in the entire process of accomplishing a new iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak using Pangu9 1.0 for all iOS devices capable of updating to the firmware, including the iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4s, the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, original iPad Air, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 1, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2 and last, but by no means least, the iPod Touch 6th generation and 5th generation devices.
iOS 9.0.2 OTA Update Jailbreakers
Prior to Jailbreaking, if you updated to the current iteration of iOS 9 your device is running via Apple’s built-in OTA (over-the-air) update option in Settings, you must backup inside of iTunes, restore to iOS 9.0.2, follow the remainder of this tutorial and, once Jailbroken, restore from your backup to retrieve your data.
Furthermore, as a prelude, it’s highly recommended that you watch my above video tutorial in its entirety to ensure the success of your iOS 9.0.2 Untethered Jailbreak with Pangu.
Step 1. Confirm that you’ve downloaded all of the required components for this tutorial from the download section found below.
Urgent Note: Make sure that iTunes is up-to-date and you have version 12.3 installed on your computer, otherwise you may experience issues during the Jailbreak.
Step 2. Disable Passcode, Auto Lock and Find my iDevice inside the Settings app and launch iTunes to verify that the computer you intend to Jailbreak with properly recognizes your device.
Step 3. Enter Airplane mode, Close iTunes, run Pangu9 1.2 and simply click ‘Start’, followed by ‘Already Backup’ to continue.
Step 4. When prompted, toggle Airplane mode for a second time. The Pangu tool on Windows will then alert you to open the Pangu app and allow access to Photos – this is likely due to Pangu having to work around iOS 9’s new Rootless security measures.
Urgent Note 2: For those of you who encounter issues or complications, watch the above video as it contains detailed troubleshooting steps.
Congratulations, after having followed four simple steps, you’ve successfully Jailbroken your iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 9.0.2, Apple’s latest firmware!
