Pangu Jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3

A jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 and earlier versions back to iOS 9.2 is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The jailbreak arrives from China through a group called Pangu, who has released similar jailbreaking utilities in the past for Mac OS X and Windows.


Jailbreaking involves modifying iOS system software so that unauthorized software and modifications can be made. This is inherently risky to the target devices security and stability, and thus is not recommended to anyone beyond truly advanced users who understand the ramifications involved with modifying system software using third party tools, including the potential for data loss or worse. Understandably, Apple is strongly opposed to jailbreaking and may void a devices warranty if it is jailbroken. There are many specific reasons not to jailbreak any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and they should not be ignored. Jailbreaking is truly only for advanced users and security researchers who know the associated risks and how to manage such a test device, it is not for novices, casual users, or even the curious.

Despite the potential hassles and troubles, some savvy users continue to be interested in the jailbreaking process and outcomes. Those who are interested in this can download the latest Pangu jailbreak tool from the official website here. Currently the version for jailbreaking iOS 9.3.3 through iOS 9.2 runs in Mac OS X, Linux, or Windows and is available in English or Chinese.

This specific version of the PanGu jailbreak tool works for iOS 9.3.3, iOS 9.3.2, iOS 9.3.1, iOS 9.3, iOS 9.2.1, and iOS 9.2 on iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, iPhone 5S, iPod touch 6th generation, iPad Mini 4, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2, iPad Pro, iPad Air, and iPad Air 2. Any other device or iOS version is not supported.

The use of the current Pangu tool is bit more complicated than some of the prior jailbreak installation processes, partially because it’s in Chinese, but those interested in learning how to use the utility to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad can watch the embedded video below found on YouTube from “EveryAppleProThing”

Again, there are many reasons why you should not jailbreak iOS, don’t ignore them.

    I wouldn’t trust a jailbreak in a million years in this day and age. Too much shady stuff goes on.

  2. Jim Hat says:

    A jailbreak from China in Chinese, lol, great idea!

    If you want to do something unstable with your iPhone, load the iOS 10 beta.

    • Mao Tze Trump says:

      A Trump president from America, if you want something unstable with the world, go with him! Massive genius idea!

      • Jim Hat says:

        You are a genius! My comments had nothing to do with politics and you made it political.

        My point was purely technical. If you are going to install software on an iPhone that wasn’t vetted by Apple, then you should be careful, especially if you can’t read Chinese.

    • Pokemonster says:

      I agree completely. If you are going to use the jailbreak from Pangu, at least wait until it is available in English. For nonspeakers, it is very difficult to differentiate what Chinese characters mean, so you’re basically clicking buttons until something works.

      I also agree that most people should not jailbreak, there is no benefit to most people. It is for tinkerers mostly, it is just not relevant to 95% of iPhone users any more.

  3. Ed Gonzalez says:

    If you have no patience (like me), here’s a good tutorial on how to do so with the Chinese version:

    Jim Hat, this group has been providing Jailbreaking utilities for sometime now. Always in Chinese first, with English translations following short after.

    • Jim Hat says:

      I know Ed, I’ve used Pangu many times in the past, I just don’t see the need to do it anymore.

      I should have clarified the point by saying, wait for the English version first.

  4. eddu says:

    If you don’t trust Chinese products, why are you buying anything Apple? They’re made in China! You guys obviously have never jailbroken your devices. Pangu is pretty much the only way to jailbreak your apple devices now a days. Go troll a Liberal website!

    • Pokemonster says:

      I think people are suggesting not to try and fish around in an application written in a foreign language, since it is not intuitive.

      Beyond that, I would suggest don’t bother jailbreaking in general. If you want a buggy operating system, use iOS 10 (or iOS 9, LOL!)

  5. Sam geberle says:

    My mother passed away I’ve inherited iphone4s which I don’t know the password for icloud he r Hotmail. So I stuck. I’ve tried everything, Apple said I have to apply to county court to access mums iPhone. Any ideas please

    • Ian says:

      Sorry about your loss.

      Jailbreaking is not going to do anything for you though, it is a bad idea in general.

      It sounds like Apple told you what to do, that is your best choice. May be a few hoops to go through but follow what Apple says and they should be able to help.
