Pangu, the well-known iOS hacking group, has releasedthe jailbreaking tool for iOS users to jailbreak the 9.3.3 version of the iOS.
The tool is eligible for iPads and for 64 bit iPhones. However, the tool is offered in Chinese. It is also available only for Windows. An English version of the tool is expected anytime.
Jailbreaking the latest iOS versions
The tool offered by Pangu will also be effective in jailbreaking older versions of the iOS right back to the 9.2 version. However, the tool is brand new and is likely to come with bugs. It is advisable to wait for some revisions made to the tool before installing it, so users must proceed with a bit of caution.
You can install the tool for fun purposes or on a personal test instrument, as there are potential security problems that could affect the device. The tutorial is offered in Chinese language and only for Window machines. However, those who don’t have Windows machines can opt for a virtual setup of the machine for performing the jailbreak.
The new jailbreaking tool from Pangu offered in Chinese will require users to run the iOS versions that are eligible for benefitting from this tool. At present, the latest tool has the capability ofjailbreaking devices running the following versions: 9.3.3; 9.3.2; 9.3.1; 9.3; 9.2.1 and also 9.2. If your device is not running on one of these versions, you can install the 9.3.3 or the 9.3.2 version of the iOS on your Apple device. The company is presently signing these two firmware versions. Moreover, the new tool cannot be used for jailbreaking the iOS 10.
It is also recommended that the user create another Apple ID, which is not connected with his or her primary account. This ID will be required in the jailbreaking procedure. However, the tool will continue to mature, and in this case this requirement may not apply.
