Obtain Pangu iOS 9.1 Jailbreak For Mac And Windows

Out of no where, Pangu Team has dropped iOS 9.1 jailbreak today for 64-bit iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The new tool is available for both Windows and Mac users.

Here is the official changelog of version 1.3.0 of Pangu for Windows and version 1.1.0 of Pangu for Mac.

iOS 9.1 jailbreak release main

Add support for iOS 9.1 devices (64bit only)
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)

As can be seen from the changelog, the new Pangu update only works on 64-bit devices which includes iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPad Air 2/1, iPad mini 4/3/2 and iPad Pro, that too if they are still running iOS 9.1 firmware.

On why does it only support iOS 9.1 and not iOS 9.2 or 9.2.1? Here’s the explanation from Pangu:

Pangu9 V1.3.0 used a kernel bug from Lokihardt to exploit iOS 9.1, and the bug is patched in iOS 9.2. Thanks Lokihardt for helping!

It’s important to note that Apple is no longer signing iOS 9.1 firmware which means if you have already updated to iOS 9.2 or above, you can’t downgrade and are out of luck for now.

We’ll be back with our guides on how-to jailbreak iOS 9.1 shortly. Stay tuned.
