The wait is over now, as the mainstream English version of the new Pangu Team’s jailbreak is officially out for everyone. In addition to support for the English language, it works perfectly on Windows, Mac and Linux, has also been updated to follow a different jailbreak solution.
However the new iOS Jailbreak tool is now in English, means more people can read what exactly the mechanism is trying to say, which nevertheless, helps to not only better diagnose error messages, but also to make sure that you’re tapping on the right buttons. Rather than all being done in a single desktop-based interface, users are now asked to use a tool called Cydia Impactor by Saurik to digitally sign an IPA file by Pangu that is then installed directly to the device in order to perform the jailbreak via a sideloaded app.
Let’s get started then.
Details to know is very important to understand that the jailbreak is still a semi-untether one, which will need to re-jailbreak using Pangu app on the device after every reboot (not respring). No computer will be required for that. Here’s what Pangu tells us, “the certificate will expire in 7 days.” for the sideloaded Pangu app if you use regular Apple ID for signing, in which case you will need to re-sideload the Pangu app by first signing it again using Cydia Impacto.
If using Apple Developer account IDs then it will have their jailbreak last them for 1 year after which they will have to do the process again via Cydia Imapctor. Make sure that you don’t have to reinstall jailbreak tweaks after every 7 days or 1 year, only need to resign and re-sideload the Pangu app using Cydia Imactor.

How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3:
Step 1: Run the Cydia Impactor tool for Windows or Mac.
Step 2: Connect the iOS device to be jailbroken to your computer via a USB cable.
Step 3: Next, open the Cydia Impactor file. If you are on Mac, you will be asked to drag the app to your Applications folder, so do that. Drag the NvwaStone_1.0.ipa file you downloaded earlier into Cydia Impactor, and make sure that your iOS device is recognized by the app as seen in the image below.
Step 4: When presented with an “Apple Developer Warning“, click on the OK button to continue.
Step 5: When prompted to enter an Apple ID Username, enter the email address associated with an Apple ID. Click OK to continue. Pangu/Saurik do state that your ID will be safe and is used simply for the purposes of signing the app’s certificate, but however we advice you create a secondary Apple ID for this purpose. You can make free one from appleid.apple.com.
Step 6: Enter your Apple ID password associated with that account, and then click OK to continue.
Step 7: After doing that, Cydia Impactor file will then go through an internal preparation process and then sign the IPA file. The Pangu jailbreak app will then be automatically installed to the connected device. But don’t run it just yet.
Step 8: On the iOS device, head to Settings > General > Device Management (on iOS 9.3.3) or Settings > General > Profile (on iOS 9.3.2 and below). Tap the profile named as the Apple ID you provided in Step 5 above and ensure that you establish it as a trusted developer.
Step 9: Exit out of the Settings app, and simply launch the newly installed Pangu app from the Home screen, will prompt you to allow it to send notifications. Click the OK button to proceed.
Step 10: In the Pangu app, tap on the START button to begin the jailbreak process, and immediately lock the device manually by pressing Power button.
Step 11: Wait for as the jailbreak payload is injected into the device. Once done, you will be notified on the Lock screen that the jailbreak was successful, followed by an automatic respring of the device.
Step 12: After the device has rebooted back into iOS, you can go ahead and launch the Cydia app to begin installing jailbreak apps and tweaks.
As mentioned earlier, after every reboot, you will be required to re-jailbreak with Pangu app. Also, after every 7 days when using free Apple ID, you will have to do the process again using Cydia Impactor. If Apple Developer account is used, you will have to redo Cydia Impactor process after 1 year.
