Pangu releases iOS 9.1 jailbreak tool

And just like that, out of nowhere, Pangu releases an update to its jailbreak tool to support jailbreaking on iOS 9.1. The tool previous only worked with firmwares 9.0 – 9.0.2. Now I know most of us are probably on iOS 9.0.2 (or below), if not, chances are, you’re on iOS 9.2, that means ‘not many’ people are on iOS 9.1, which is a bit weird as to why Pangu released a jailbreak for the firmware.


The jailbreak currently only works on 64-bit devices, so that’s the iPhone 5s and above, and the iPad Mini and above, full changelog below.

Pangu v1.3.0

– Add support for iOS 9.1 devices (64bit only)
– iPhone (iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s)
– iPad (iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2, iPad Pro)

If you remember, Apple stopped signing iOS 9.1 back in December of last year (2015), and seeing as though there was no jailbreak back then, many people would’ve likely updated to the current latest firmware, iOS 9.2.1. Potential jailbreakers probably thought if a jailbreak was to release, it would support the latest signed firmware too and not an unsigned firmware. Not many people might benefit from this jailbreak release but still…

If you’re one of the lucky people on iOS 9.1, you can download the Pangu jailbreak tool here (Windows only at the moment) and follow our guide on how to jailbreak here.

There’s still nothing concrete on an iOS 9.2 or above jailbreak, but rest assured we’ll keep you updated!

What do you think of this surprise jailbreak?
