This time again, out of nowhere, China-based Pangu Team has on top gear with reignited passion within the jailbreak community by releasing a jailbreak solution for 64-bit iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices running the previous unsupported iOS 9.3.3 – iOS 9.2 firmwares.
With immediate jailbreak availability, the tool is currently only available to those owners who have a compatible device, and are also running a Windows machine, with support for Macs likely to come later-rather-than-sooner update.
Available to download now, the latest Pangu jailbreak solution is what’s known as a semi-untethered (or semi-tethered) solution. Not exactly the holy grail of jailbreaking, but certanly better than a tethered-only option that would force the device to be ran through the software tool on computer again every time it was rebooted.
With iOS 10 out in the wild for developers and public testers, and the fact that Apple has left the iOS 10 kernel unencrypted, there’s been purposely been a great deal of talk about a potential jailbreak solution being available when the firmware lands later this year. Where Pangu Team has ensured that the talk of iOS 10 will be left behind, at least for the time being, as users with devices running the newly released iOS 9.3.3 go through the process of liberating it with this new semi-untethered solution.
With this hands-on, the Windows jailbreak tool installs a Pangu app on the connected device as part of the jailbreak. If your device is rebooted or powered down, that app then needs to be ran each tome to execute the payload and put the device back into a jailbroken state.
As for compatibility, Pangu Team is also offering support for devices and the solution works with 64-bit devices (iPhone 6s/6s Plus, iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPad mini 2/3/4, iPad Air 2/1, 12.9/9.7-inch iPad Pro, iPod touch 6G) running iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 firmware.
