This guide will show you how to jailbreak iOS 9.2 through iOS 9.3.3 using the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool that is free to download and use.
We finally have an option to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3, which is the most recent version of iOS. There are a few catches at this point that you need to know about.
Currently the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak is only available for 64-bit devices. This means you’ll need an iPhone 5s or newer to use the new Pangu jailbreak on iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.3.3. The tool is currently only available for Windows so you’ll need a PC or a Windows Virtual Machine on your Mac.
Th other catch is that the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak is only available in Chinese at this point so you’ll need to use a Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak guide like this to walk you through the process.
The tool requires users to enter a working Apple ID and password to install the Pangu jailbreak tool. Users should consider creating a free alternate Apple ID for this process. Make sure you verify this Apple ID.
If you are not on iOS 9.2 or higher, you should make sure that you update to this now. Apple is still signing iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 9.3.2. This jailbreak tool does not work with iOS 10. If you are on the iOS 10 beta, you need to downgrade to iOS 9.3.3 to use it.
How to Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3
- You will need the following items handy to complete the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak on your iPhone or iPad.
- Windows PC or Virtual Machine

Once you have these items handy, you can prepare to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad running iOS 9.2 through iOS 9.3.3.
Connect To Computer & iTunes
Before you get too far into this process you need to make sure that your computer and iPhone are ready. Make sure that when you plug your iPhone in to your PC or to your Mac with a Virtual Machine you can see the iPhone in iTunes. If you don’t already have iTunes installed, you should install it now and test this.
Prepare Your iPhone
You need to turn off Find my iPhone to use this tool. If you don’t already have this turned off go to Settings -> iCloud -> Find My iPhone -> Off. Once this jailbreak is complete you can turn it back on. If you signed in with a new Apple ID, or reset your phone make sure you turn this off.
Make sure you have a recent backup if you are using your every day phone for this.

Install the Pangu Jailbreak Tool
Now you need to install the PP 5.0 tool that you just downloaded in the previous step. This will install the tool you need to jailbreak your iPhone or iPad.

If the computer asks you to allow access through the Firewall you need to allow this if you want to use the jailbreak.
Use the iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak
With the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool installed on your computer it is time to use it on your iPhone or iPad.
Next you will be prompted to enter the Apple ID and password for your iPhone. This is when we recommend using a spare Apple ID so that you are not using one that contains your personal information.
Click the green button and wait for the computer to install the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool on your iPhone or iPad.
This could take a while and you may see a Captcha on the screen of your computer. If the tool looks like something is happening you’re good.
When it is complete grab your iPhone and go to Settings -> General -> Profiles -> Trust the developer. This will install the Pangu jailbreak app on your iPhone.
