Today the Pangu team surprised us all by launching a new version of their tool. Specifically, they have released version 1.3.0 which allows to Jailbreak to iOS 9.1 on 64-bit devices .
This means that everyone from the iPhone 5s and iPad Mini 2 onwards is compatible with this Jailbreak, although there is one essential requirement that not everyone can meet at the moment : having iOS 9.1 installed on their device.
Which devices are compatible with this new Jailbreak
As we said, this new version of Pangu is only compatible with 64-bit devices, which is a further limitation, in addition to the already mentioned version of the operating system.
Thus, the compatible devices are the following:
- iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s.
- iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2
Steps to Jailbreak to iPhone and iPad with iOS 9.1
Although we would like to be able to detail the steps to do the iOS 9.1 Jailbreak with this new version of Pangu, we can’t do it. The reason is that we don’t have any device that has iOS 9.1 installed at this moment, and as Apple no longer has the signature it is not possible to install it.
As we said, only users who have a device with iOS 9.1 installed can use this Jailbreak and taking into account that it comes from Pangu, we assume that the steps to follow will be identical to those of the previous versions. That’s why following the steps of our last tutorial on how to do Jailbreak with Pangu you should have no problems using this new version.
Why is this iOS 9.1 Jailbreak coming now?
You may well be wondering why this Jailbreak is coming now and we are wondering too.
Currently Jailbreak users are using iOS 9.0.2, while those who were expecting a new version of it will probably be on iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.2.1. This means that very few users will still be on iOS 9.1 and will be able to access this newly released version.
If we take a look at the description of the update, we see that the Jailbreak was made possible by a kernel error located by Lokihardt. This bug has already been fixed in iOS 9.2 and we assume that this is why they are now releasing this version of the Jailbreak. As it is already resolved, Apple will not discover anything new and will not interfere with the release of a tool to do so in iOS 9.2.1 or iOS 9.3 when it becomes available.
