Pangu team is good at giving surprises. It has previously shocked us with different updates regarding the jailbreaks. This time again, Pangu has managed to jar us all with dropping a new jailbreak. The Pangu team has announced OS 9.1 jailbreak today for iPodtouch devices, iPad and 64-bit iPhone. The new jailbreaking updated tool is available for all Mac and Windows users.
The official changelog of Pangu version 1.3.0 for Windows and Pangu version 1.1.0 for Mac is as follows;
- iPhone(iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S),
- Add support for iOS 9.1 devices (64bit only)
- iPad( iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2, iPad Pro)
From the above-mentioned update of the changelog, the Pangu update will perform on only 64-bit devices. The 64-bit devices include iPhone 6S, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPad Air 2, iPad Air 1, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, and iPad Pro. It must be kept in mind that these devices will also work firmly with one condition and that is if they are running iOS 9.1 firmware.
Pangu Team already knew that the audience will bombard it with the question regarding the limitation of the support to iOS 9.1 only. In fact, we all want to know why the firmware compatible is the older 9.1 and not new iOS 9.2 or 9.2.1. This is how Pangu responds to the question;
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!
The explanation is solid and all, most probably, will somehow be satisfied with the answer. However, this must be kept in mind that Apple does not allow to gain iOS 9.1 firmware anymore. It means that if you have upgraded to the recent iOS 9.2 renditions or higher, you cannot downgrade to this version. It clearly symbolizes that you won’t be able to enjoy Pangu jailbreaking perks now!
There would be complete guidelines of the iOS 9.1 jailbreak coming soon. Also, if you are eligible for the jailbreak and you wish for it, you can download links from below;
