The recent news of iOS 9-9.0.2 untethered jailbreak release from Pangu has come as a big surprise for the jailbreak community as nobody had expected it at such short notice, following Apple's iOS 9 rollout. Despite Pangu's seamless jailbreak installation, some users have reported numerous installation errors, inherent bugs and post-update problems with iOS 9 jailbreak.
IBTimes UK brings you a rundown of the most common problems unearthed during or after jailbreaking iOS 9 untethered with Pangu 9 and the possible fixes for the same.
How to fix 'Error 0A stuck at 45%'
Some iOS users are reportedly encountering installation issues with the Pangu 9 jailbreak, wherein the jailbreak progress gets stuck at 45% with the error code reading '0A' and the setup seems to freeze up unexpectedly. The root cause of this issue is attributed to the encrypted backup installed on the iOS device via iTunes.
It is reported that the issue can be fixed by disabling encrypted backup for your iOS device via the Summary tab in iTunes by unchecking the corresponding check box. Once you have disabled the encryption mechanism, you can take unencrypted backup of your device and then try re-jailbreaking it with Pangu 9.
