One of the best known of all the jailbreak teams is Pangu [ext klink], a team that has been producing jailbreaks regularly for the last couple of years. With iOS 9, the jailbreaks have been a little slower in arriving although that is possibly down to the fact that there have been a lot of bugs and Apple has released a high number of iOS updates to fix them. While the Cupertino company may well have patched some exploits, the sheer number of update and the speed at which they were released meant that there was little point in a jailbreak being released.

That has all changed with the release of PPHelper for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3. The jailbreak came from Pangu, together with PP Assistant and is a semi-untethered utility that, unfortunately, will not work for everyone. The jailbreak is not compatible with any 32-bit device and Pangu has confirmed that it never will be, most likely because these older devices only account for a very small percentage of active iOS devices. Also, at the time of writing, only Windows is supported but we will let you know as soon as a Mac version is released. If you are able to use the jailbreak, you should download iOS 9.3.3 [ext link], if you haven’t already, but do make sure you use the IPSW and iTunes method, and you can then install PPHelper [ext link].

Who Are PP and Pangu ?
Both teams have been on the jailbreak scene for some time. Pangu first appeared with a jailbreak for iOS 7.1 in early 2014 when no other team looked likely to be releasing one. The success of that jailbreak ensured that the team continued to produce jailbreaks with extreme regularity, providing one for just about every iOS version going. PP Assistant didn’t get off to such a clever start, though. You may remember the name 25PP, a Chinese piracy store that was downloaded alongside Cydia on some jailbreaks. Following the removal of the store, that could very well have been the end of PP Assistant but they made an attempt to redeem themselves when they come up with a Mac version of the jailbreak for iOS 8.1.4 – the only team to do so. They capitalized on their success with two more jailbreaks – iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4. However, this was to be the last we saw of them for a while after Taig jailbreak team levied an accusation that PP had taken Taig’s exploits and used them to produce the jailbreaks.
iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Release Date :
At the moment, no. However, we do know that it can be jailbroken, thanks to a photograph uploaded to Twitter by Luca Todesco showing iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak [ext link]. Apple released iOS 9.3.4 download to patch PPHelper but, in the process, they appear to have opened up more security holes. While Todesco will not let us have his jailbreak, Pangu is working on a new utility for the latest iOS version and, as soon as it is released, we’ll let you have all the details.
