Jailbreak iOS 9.1 Pangu 9 – Fix Problems & What You Need To Know [Updated]
Everything you need to know about jailbreak iOS 9.1 using Pangu 9 and how you can fix common problems related to it.
Can I Downgrade And Jailbreak?
As miserable it may sound but you cannot downgrade from your current version of iOS to iOS 9.1 and jailbreak using Pangu 9. Heck, you can't even upgrade to iOS 9.1 either. The currently publicly signed firmware version is iOS 9.2.1 only.
Why Should I Jailbreak?
There are tons of reasons behind it, but mainly you'd want to jailbreak for tweaks that enhance the overall functionality of using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And if theming is something you very much prefer then that's another reason enough for you to jump onboard as well.
Is It Safe?
Yes, it is. Pangu has released several tools in the past as well and their work is absolutely safe and trustworthy.
Which Devices Can I Jailbreak?
Only 64-bit bit devices, nothing else. Here's a complete list of them:
iPhone (iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s)
iPad (iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad Pro)
I Updated Over The Air To iOS 9.1 - Can I Jailbreak?
No. Jailbreak tools tend not to work nicely with over the air updates of iOS, and it's highly likely that the entire process will just fail, so we recommend that you hold back from now.
Unpair Your Apple Watch Before Jailbreaking
Make sure that you turn off your Bluetooth and unpair your Apple Watch from your iPhone before going ahead with the jailbreak process. The jailbreak process might fail if the Apple Watch is connected to your smartphone.
Kill All Apps And Give Your iPhone A Hard Reset Before Jailbreaking
Open the iOS app switcher by double clicking the Home button and close all apps. Furthermore, perform a hard reset by pressing and holding down the Power + Home buttons until the screen goes black and the iPhone, iPad turns back on.
I Messed Up While Jailbreaking - What Should I Do?
There's nothing you can do. And since you cannot restore to iOS 9.1 using iTunes, therefore you have no other option but to update to iOS 9.2.1 download.
My Device Went Into A Boot Loop - Now What?
If your iPhone, iPad went into a boot loop then try the following two fixes:
- Perform a hard reset of your device by holding down the Power + Home buttons until the screen goes black and you see the Apple logo. Let go of the buttons.
- Power down your iPhone, iPad and turn back on by holding the Volume Up and Down buttons simultaneously.
Update: The Pangu Team has acknowledged the boot loop issue and has tweeted out the following fix:
For those suffering "boot loop", please try reboot the device or just wait for enough time. We are testing and trying to make it more stable

Leaving your device unattended for a while also seems to fix the issue. Hence, leave your iPhone or iPad on a table overnight and wait it out.
