The Pangu Team has just released an update to v1.1.0 of the iOS 9 jailbreak tool.
The new tool is of a size of 73MB and it contains the following bug fixes and stability improvements, especially the success rate as emphasized by many of the core members of the team on Weibo just now.
- Improve the success rate and reliability of jailbreak program for 64bit devices
- Optimize 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.
For those who had jailbroken, the Pangu team also reminded those users to update Pangu 9.0.x in Cydia if your device is already jailbroken, without the need to re-jailbreak it.
Yet, the package Pangu 9.0.x Untether 1.1 is still pending at Saurik’s side for his approval to release officially on Cydia. So please be patient as it will drop very soon. We will certainly update this post when we see the update is available.
Update: Pangu 9.0.x Untether 1.1 is available on Cydia now:
For those who haven’t yet, you can go to http://en.pangu.io and download the latest tool to jailbreak your iOS devices.
Side note from one core team member, a.k.a windknown on his personal Weibo that he had rebooted his iPhone for over 1000 times to locate a certain bug and fix it. We don’t know if it is something related to the Bootloop of Death (BLoD) that concerned by many, but still, shoutout to them for the effort so far!
But yet, there is no news on a release of Mac version. In the meantime, you can use Virtual Machine to jailbreak with your Mac.
