Why Jailbreak iOS 9.0 news is a pleasant surprise?
Apple has recently taken some aggressive actions to secure the iDevices and to continue the practice, it has made substantial efforts to stop the iOS Jailbreak especially after the iOS 8.0 release. Many of the iOS 8.0 versions were successfully jailbroken but Apple quickly released the patches to void the jailbreaks. When Apple launched the iOS 9.0 it was looking quite impossible to jailbreak the iOS 9 devices but all credit goes to Pangu team which made it possible again.
Although we saw the video flooding over internet of the jailbreak of iOS 9 even before the official release but it was a very limited version. Many believed that the Jailbreak era is near to an end and a team named ZERODIUM even announced $1 Million for the one who will jailbreak the iOS 9.
And then suddenly Pangu surprised everyone with releasing the Pangu 9 software which allows the iOS 9.0, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.02 Jailbreak.
What devices does the Pangu 9 Jailbreak for iOS 9.0 supports?
You can currently jailbreak the iOS 9.0, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 firmware of Apple for the iPhone and iPad using the Pangu 9 which currently works on Windows machines and does not support the Mac for now. If you are a Mac user, don’t worry, as we are going to show you sooner about jailbreaking the iOS 9 device using Mac with Pangu 9.0.
Right now the Pangu 9.0 supports all devices which support iOS 9 for Jailbreak. The list includes:
• iPhone 6S / iPhone 6S Plus / iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 5S / iPhone 5 / iPhone 4S
• iPad 4 / iPad 3 / iPad 2

Cydia Installer has been almost redesigned for iOS 9.0
If you don’t know much about Cydia, then let me explain it briefly. Cydia is like the App Store for the Jailbroken devices. Like You download and install different apps from the App Store on your iPhone or iPad. You use the Cydia to install the apps and Jailbreak tweaks on your Jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Below YouTube video explains the Cydia in good details.
In past many times we saw that the Pangu or Taiga released the Jailbreak for the iOS firmware but Cydia was not updated and compatible with that version. That used to cause trouble for the users who already had Jailbroken their device but could not proceed. But this time surprisingly the Cydia Installer has been completely redesigned and includes many new features to support the Pangu 9 Jailbreak for the iOS 9.0, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2.
This definitely means that both the Cydia and Pangu teams were in touch before the Pangu 9 release and Pangu announced the Pangu 9 release after the Cydia installer was ready for it.
