How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 with Pangu [English]

By , Jul 29, 2016

Pangu iOS 7.1.1

Pangu released an English version of its iOS 9.2-9.3.3 jailbreak tool on Friday, which gets the same job done as the Chinese jailbreak tool that was released over the weekend.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to jailbreak your iOS 9.3.3 device with Pangu on Linux, Mac, and Windows with the new tool.

How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 with Pangu

Since the tool is now in English, that means more people can read what the tool is trying to say, which helps to not only better diagnose error messages, but also to make sure that you’re clicking on the right buttons.

Just like the Chinese version of the tool, the English Pangu jailbreak works with all 64-bit iOS devices. Those include:

  • iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE
  • iPod touch 6G
  • iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro

To jailbreak with the English version of Pangu, follow these steps:

1) Download the IPA file and Cydia Impactor from our downloads page.

2) Connect the device you want to jailbreak to your computer via an MFI-certified Lightning to USB cable, then make sure to disable your passcode and disable Find My iPhone on the device itself.

3) Next, open the Cydia Impactor file you downloaded. If you are on a Mac, you will be asked to drag the app to your Applications folder, so do that:

Drag Cydia Impactor to Applications folder

4) Now you can open the Impactor app itself, and you should see this interface:

5) Drag the IPA file that you downloaded over the top of the interface.

6) You will receive an Apple Developer warning. Just click the blue OK button.

7) You will now be asked to enter an Apple ID, so enter your login and then click the blue OK button:

Apple ID Pangu Impactor

Note: We recommend using a burner Apple ID, so you should probably make a new Apple ID for this process. On the other hand, regular Apple IDs will provide you with a certificate that lasts 7 days, while developer Apple IDs will provide you with a certificate that lasts 1 year. You will have to repeat this jailbreak process every time the certificate expires.

8) Next, enter your Apple ID password, and click on the blue OK button once again:

9) After signing in, Cydia Impactor will display various kinds of text at the bottom; just sit tight and wait:

10) Once it’s finished, you should see the Start button all over again on the Cydia Impactor app. At this point, you’re done with this app and can close it.

11) Check your iOS device’s Home screen, and you should see the Pangu app icon.

12) Open the Settings app on your Home screen and navigate to General > Device Management.

Trust Pangu Certificate

13) Tap on the certificate you see here, and then be sure to tap on the red Trust button to trust the certificate so the Pangu app can run on your iOS device.

14) Now go back to your Home screen and launch the Pangu app.

15) You will be asked to allow Push notifications for the Pangu app, be sure to allow them before moving on.

16) Tap on the Start button within the Pangu app.

18) Just keep waiting, as the device it getting ready to respring. The storage getting full notification lets you know that Cydia is begin written to your device’s storage.

19) When the respring is complete, you can check your Home screen and you should see Cydia.

20) Launch Cydia and allow it to refresh your sources.

    I’m using iOS 9.3.2 and Cydia won’t open for me. I considered restoring but then it’d update to iOS 9.3.4. Any tips on how to fix this?

  • Nick Kaminski

    As soon as I drop IPA over impactor I am asked for my email and password, THEN I get the developer warning. I click OK and nothing happens.

    Hello, everyone! I have a jailbreak iPhone 6S Plus 64GB. I bought it from someone in mint condition but I could not activate it. AT&T representative said I can use the phone with Wi-Fi (almost like an iPad). What can I do to activate the phone to use internet data? Where is the free IMEI UNLOCK software for IPhone? Thank you very much.

  • watwat

    it is good but cydia does’t open. why ??

  • Adam Wheeler

    First, thanks for the clear and detailed tutorial on how to achieve this JB, for some reason i am still coming up short, and have tried about a dozen times. i have no passcode in place, and find my iPhone is off.

    I am on a mac, i have restored my iPhone 6 (to 9.3.3) several times, and feel like i am following your directions, but every time i finish, Cydia will not launch, it looks like it will open for about a second or 2, then disappears. i have been reading your blog a lot and have been jailbroken on ever phone since iOS 3, so this is strange that i cannot land this /:

    i am assuming my mis-step must be coming from 1 of 2 places: the downloads or the checkbox on the Pangu app

    In your step 1) Downloads page: i do not see a MAC version of the 9.3.3
    ▪ Pangu for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3: Windows – IPA file + Cydia Impactor

    i assume that i only need the IPA file + Cydia Impactor (as i am on a mac)?

    · Cydia impactor seems to work fine, i drag and drop the IPA file on it
    · I OK the warning
    · i input my apple ID
    · i input my apple ID password
    · i see the Pangu app on my iPhone6
    · i go to device management & trust (myself) as developer
    · i then launch Pangu app
    · i check the box***
    · i then hit start
    · Pangu tells me to lock screen, so i lock
    · Pangu sends SUCCESS notification, that needs a minute to complete
    · device restrings, and i see Cydau
    · i try to launch Cydia and it crashes.

    *** there is a checkbox on my version the first time i run it, i suspect your screenshot was taken after a successful jailbreak.

    Any ideas, as to where i am FAILing?
