Jailbreaking team Pangu discovered the flaw in iOS 9.3.3 that allowed them to release a jailbreaking tool. However, Apple patched that security flaw with iOS 9.3.4. However, Pangu was able to find a way again to make iOS devices more free.
With iOS 10 launching in September, Apple still released a version 9.3.5 and that was without public beta testing. iOS 9.3.5, just like all those under the version 9 umbrella, is meant for the following devices:
- iPhone 4S or later
- iPad 2 or later
- iPad mini or later
- iPad Pro
- 5th generation iPod Touch or later
Just like version 9.3.4, this one also blocks the Pangu jailbreak. This is frustrating news for those who love jailbreaking their devices. In addition to that, users who have upgraded to 9.3.5 have reported some flaws with the update. Some experts have even suggested not updating to this version given the many complaints.
A Partial Jailbreak
Pangu has outlined a partial jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5. It can be done online but keep in mind that a fully functional Cydia cannot be installed using this method. You will need the Cydia to completely jailbreak your phone.
If you’re still interested, here’s how to partially jailbreak your iOS 9.3.5 device:
- Go to pangu8.com/93.html from your iOS device. Keep in mind that your version should be between iOS 9.3 to 9.3.5 to do this.
- Tap on the “Jailbreak iOS 9.3 – 9.3.5” button. A system compatibility check will be performed and if so, you will be led to the next step.
- Click on the Agree button to start the jailbreak process.
- Wait for the Semi Jailbreak app installation menu to appear.
- Tap on the Install link located on the above right corner to install the Semi Jailbreak app.
- Use the Semi Jailbreak app to install Cydia and others.
iOS 9.3.5 still has many flaws but it’s the last branch in the iOS 9 family. Some have even suggested foregoing the update altogether. Then again, if this version is full of flaws, you can always downgrade your current OS to the last stable version.
