Pangu 9 Jailbreak Tool Finally Available For Mac OS X Users
Exactly two weeks after Pangu released an iOS 9 jailbreak tool for Windows users, a Mac version has arrived. iPhone users can now download and use the Pangu 9 tool to jailbreak their devices running iOS 9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 using their Mac.
But Apple just released iOS 9.1 earlier this week. If you're wondering whether the tool works for iOS 9.1, keep reading.
The Pangu 9 jailbreak will NOT work with iOS 9.1. Apple has patched a couple of exploits used by the Pangu team in developing the latest jailbreak tool. There is some good news if you've already updated to iOS 9.1 though.
It is still possible to downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 at this time. This will be possible only until Apple continues to sign iOS 9.0.2. To downgrade, you will need to download the iOS 9.0.2 IPSW file and flash it onto your iPhone using recovery mode and iTunes.
If you are running iOS 9.1 at the moment and want to jailbreak, hurry up and downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 because Apple will stop signing that version anytime soon.
The Pangu 9 jailbreak for Mac OS X can be downloaded directly from the Pangu website. Redmond Pie has a complete guide on how to jailbreak your iPhone using a Mac. Remember to backup your device and follow the other instructions before jailbreaking. Also, proceed at your own risk!
