Apple fans around the world are rejoicing over the latest jailbreaking tool released by top hacking team Pangu. This tool works on iPhones, iPods, and iPads that are running iOS 9.2 to 9.3.3, which means that most Apple device owners can enjoy the jailbreak.
If you own an Apple mobile gadget, you’re probably on your way to download the jailbreaking tool. Before you do this, though, you’ll need to know the following things about Pangu’s latest jailbreak.
- It’s semi-tethered
Semi-tethered means that you have to connect your device to your computer before you can download and install the jailbreaking tool. You also need to re-install it if your device reboots.
- Pangu has released an update for it
The earlier version of the jailbreaking tool expired after seven days, which means you have to download and install it again after a week has passed. Fortunately, Pangu released an update called Pangu 1.1, which comes with an “Embedded Certificate” option and has extended the life of the jailbreak up to April 2017. If you choose this option, you won’t need to repeat the download and installation process until this date.
- A fully untethered version may not be available
The Pangu team has revealed on Reddit that they’re not planning to release a fully untethered jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.2 to 9.3.3. However, this isn’t really a problem for many people since the semi-tethered process is easy and doesn’t take too much time.
- It can be made invalid with a new security patch
Apple has just released iOS 9.3.4 which, according to them, comes with an important security update. They have acknowledged Team Pangu for discovering a vulnerability involving memory corruption, which most likely means that this issue has been fixed in the security patch and that iOS 9.3.4 will lock people out of the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. So, if you’re downloading Pangu’s new jailbreaking tool, you might want to stay away from iOS 9.3.4 until we can confirm if it really does affect the tool or not.
These are just some of the things you must know about Pangu’s iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Check out this guide from WCCF Tech to know how to download and install the jailbreaking tool.
