The Chinese jailbreak hacker and developer team, Pangu, which was the first to release untethered jailbreak for iOS 8-8.1 and iOS 7.1.x, has just announced an untethered utility with support for iOS 9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2.

This marks the first untethered release for iOS 9. The jailbreak version for iOS 9-9.0.2 noted as 1.0.0 weighs in at 73MB and is currently available for Window only, with no mention about when the Mac version is coming. It is compatible with the following iOS 9-9.0.2 devices:

  • iPod touch
  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 5, 5s, 5c
  • iPhone 6 and 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
  • iPad mini 2, 3 and 4
  • iPad
  • iPad Air and iPad Air 2

The most important thing before you install the jailbreak, is not to forget to create a backup of your device using iTunes. Turn on the Airplane mode and disable passcode and Find my iPhone so that the jailbreak process will not be affected.

The team further suggests that if you have performed a firmware upgrade via OTA, it affects the iOS 9 jailbreak and causes failure in the process. If you failed to install the jailbreak after multiple attempts, try downloading the update and restore your device.

Alternatively, you can try out a few troubleshooting tips if you fail to jailbreak after several attempts. Switch to Airplane mode and then try to jailbreak, or reboot both your iOS device and computer, or use the restore functionality in Pangu to restore your device and then give it a try.

You might be greeted with a warning saying, "Disk is almost full". This occurs since Pangu will write a few important files into the system partition, which will in any case not affect your device. If you see Cydia is installed, it will re-adjust the system files on the first launch and the warning will disappear.
