iOS 9.1 Jailbreak by Pangu Released for Mac OS X and Windows

Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.1

The Pangu group has released a new jailbreak for 64-bit iPad and iPhone devices running iOS 9.1, including iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.


Jailbreaking circumvents internal security measures put in place by Apple to protect an iOS device, thereby allowing third party software to be installed and other modifications to the device. While this activity is popular with a subset of advanced users, the vast majority of iPhone and iPad owners should not jailbreak their devices, as jailbreaking can void the device warranty, lead to potential security issues, and generally offer a less stable iOS experience. That, in addition to many other reasons not to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad, can be read here. This is truly for advanced users only and is not recommended for most. Unsurprisingly, Apple also strongly opposes jailbreaking.

If you happen to be interested in jailbreaking, have made a backup of your iOS device, and happen to be running iOS 9.1 on a compatible iPhone or iPad, you can get Pangu from the developer site here. The Pangu 9.1 download is about 70mb.

The Pangu 9.1 tool is available for both Mac OS X and Windows, and also supports jailbreaking iOS 9 on earlier 32-bit devices. The actual process of jailbreaking is typical of a Pangu release for those familiar with the procedure, involving backing up the device, turning off Find My iPhone, connecting it to the computer with USB, launching the Pangu app, and walking through the various steps shown on screen.

Pangu for iOS 9.1

There is no way to downgrade iOS to prior final releases, so if you have already moved beyond iOS 9.1 as most likely have, this utility will do nothing for you. The current version of iOS is 9.2.1, and iOS 9.3 is expected to be available to the public in the coming weeks.

Separately, the Pangu group also mentions a jailbreak for the Apple TV 4th generation will be available soon as well.

    Do not ever install sketchy software or sketchy tools onto an iPhone or a computer. Pangu is from a Chinese hacker group, the software is not open source, I wouldn’t touch it with a ten foot pole nor any other jailbreak tool in a million years. The Cydia store doesn’t validate software, anything goes, and the Cydia apps could be doing anything with your data. Don’t jailbreak.

    Yet another reason not to break iPhone encryption, they should be stronger not weaker! Device security is going to become even more important as phones control more of our lives.

    I have never had any issues with Pangu Jailbreaks. We should be able to do what we want with our phones. Apple iOS is inadequate and the jailbreak tweaks and mods make the OS better thats why apple copies a lot of them. Yes I was on android but I prefer the iOS. Apple is to restrictive and if I paid $700 dollars for my phone and I know the risks of jailbreaking I should be able to do it. Apple is a closet dictatorship the apple lemmings just dont know it or want to realize it.

    I’m running jailbroken iOS 9.0.2. How should I upgrade to 9.1 since the available is 9.2?

  8. Nicolai Tassani says:

    Perfect! i recently purchase an iPhone 6s with 9.1 :) I do the jailbreak, and all work ok with the exception of the boot loop after restart (The phone reboot 5 o 6 times before start). (Today pangu release an update and now is all working perfect!).

    Pangu…please release 9.1 jb for 32 bit devices, since alots of your fans already following from your first debute until now….

  10. Cr says:

    To everyone that is being negative about jailbreaking, with or mostly without ever even doing the jailbreak, you all are very pathetic. Most of you have never tried to JB so why “judge a book by its cover.”
