The Pangu jailbreak developer team has just released the 1.1.0 version of its tool for devices jailbroken on iOS 9-9.0.2. The new update brings a spate of bug fixes and enhancements to improve the chances of jailbreaking 64-bit devices.

The Pangu 1.1.0 update also improves the duration and speed of jailbreaking any iOS 9 device, besides optimising the data backup process. Check out the complete changelog as outlined in the official release notes of Pangu 1.1.0 release for Windows:

  • Improve the success rate and reliability of jailbreak program for 64bit devices
  • Optimise backup process and improve jailbreak speed, and fix an issue that leads to fail to jailbreak due to low disk space in Windows.
  • Fix a bug that leads to an exit of the jailbreak tool due to abnormal network status.
  • Add the re-jailbreak function (only for some devices that were upgraded via iTunes but were detected as jailbroken)
  • Fix a bug that leads to fail to use the instrument function in Xcode.

Those who faced installation issues and post-jailbreak problems (including boot loop of death) with earlier versions of Pangu 9 jailbreak can go ahead and try re-jailbreaking their iOS device with the newly released Pangu 1.1.0 tool. The jailbreak is currently limited to Windows users only, while Pangu team has confirmed that a Mac version of the tool is already under works and will be coming soon.

Avid jailbreakers who have not been able to jailbreak their device successfully on iOS 9 can now do so by using Pangu 1.1.0 tool and our step-by-step guide posted below.
