Just weeks after iOS 9’s launch, Chinese jailbreak team Pangu has released the world’s first untethered jailbreak for Apple’s new mobile operating system.
The jailbreak, which covers iOS 9 through iOS 9.0.2 for all compatible Apple devices, is available for free, although OS X users will have to wait since there’s only a Windows installer available.
Mac support will no doubt follow in the future, but no date has yet been announced.
While we can confirm that the jailbreak does indeed work, users should show caution when using any jailbreak.
Pangu advises users to backup their data via iTunes. The Chinese jailbreaking team also recommend switching devices to Airplane Mode and disabling “Find my iPhone” and password functions in system settings to improve the jailbreak’s “success rate.”
Pangu Team has become one of the main jailbreak players over the past several years. In the cat-and-mouse game Apple plays with the jailbreak community, Cupertino has even taken to (perhaps slightly mockingly) publicly acknowledging Pangu when fixing vulnerabilities in versions of iOS.
