The Pangu hacking team says an iOS 9.2 – iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak will soon be available for 64-bit iOS devices. 9to5Mac reports the hacking team announced the upcoming release early Sunday, via Twitter.

9to5Mac:

The last widely-used jailbreak was released in October of last year. That means that it’s been almost a year since we last saw a public jailbreak released that actually mattered to the majority of would-be jailbreakers.

Pangu released an iOS 9.1 jailbreak back in March, but many users had already upgraded their devices to later versions of iOS by then, and were unable to make use of the release.

Users are reporting that a Chinese version of the tool is already available, and is reported to use a semi-tethered method, Pangu’s tweet has over 6,500 retweets, and over 9,000 likes, so quite a few people are apparently glad to hear the news.

Pangu says they’ll announce more very soon, and to check for updates at its website, pangu.io.

The Usual Disclaimers

When the Pangu jailbreak is ready, we recommend that you backup your device’s data to iTunes or iCloud before attempting any jailbreak, as there is always the possibility of data loss, or of bricking your device.

Also, keep in mind that jailbreaking a device puts you out there on the edge, making your device more vulnerable to crashes and security risks. And of course, it violates Apple’s End User License Agreement, and could possibly void any warranty you have left on your device. Also, look both ways before crossing the street, and never take candy from strangers, but if you do, make sure its the really good chocolate candy, and not any of that Now & Later chewy taffy crap.
