Jailbreaking the Apple iOS 9 platform is deliberately not easy. In fact it’s the Twin Towers tightrope walk of jailbreaking in that you have to be either very brave or very determined to break it because it apparently runs a security system dubbed ‘rootless’ and it’s designed to seek out malware, therefore most all attempts to jailbreak it get recognized and promptly stopped.
But now a hacking team from China called Pangu have found a way to jailbreak the iOS 9 platform and prior to this platforms iOS 7.1 to 8.1. But it’s their latest coup that has created a storm of controversy amongst the jailbreaking community, not least because there may well be some industry jealousy that they got there first.
The Pangu jailbreak consists of a Windows software package that allows for what is known as an “untethered” jailbreak. This means your device does not need to be plugged into your computer to run. The jailbreak reportedly works on iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices running iOS 9 through 9.0.2.
Pangu claim they can jailbreak phones including the iPhone 4s, 5/5c/5s, 6/6 Plus, and 6s/6s Plus as well as the iPad 2, 3 and 4, iPad Air/Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2/3/4, and the 5th and 6th generations of the iPod touch – a long list of both current and older devices.
Once jailbroken, users can install a framework known as Cydia that enables the user to install unofficial packages that can enable your device to run apps or make changes to the iOS operating system which it would otherwise prevent.
Pangu is a team of dedicated cellphone jailbreakers based in China. Working with sponsorship, their first untethered jailbreak tool was Pangu 7, introduced in June 2014. Some of their success has been achieved by Apple users passing on to the expired enterprise certificates to assist them in developing the software. Pangu 7 and 8 has been downloaded by many millions of users around the world, and they have big expectations for Pangu 9. The software developers are currently releasing the Pangu download for free and even sharing details of the tools they are using. This certainly flies in the face of the Apple philosophy to premium price everything they offer.
Should you risk jailbreaking your phone with Pangu?
Well, industry insiders have been quick to be pretty scathing of Pangu’s achievements, claiming that first of all, the jailbreak will void your End User License agreement so that you will receive no further assistance from Apple when things go wrong.
Furthermore, it is claimed that many of the apps which can be installed once your phone is jailbroken still require several tweaks and elimination of bugs before they are ready. But no doubt some brave souls will want to beta test the new jailbreak that Pangu has created.
Meanwhile Apple have been quick to point out that malware such as Keyraider, which affected some 225,000 phones, was aimed specifically at those that had jailbroken their phones. The Keyraider malware attempts to steal account names, passwords, device IDs and more.
There is also a possibility that your phone could experience what is known as the Boot Loop of Death. This is not a new phenomenon, it frequently happens to Playstations when user try to play pirated video games.
In the case of Apple iPhones, the Boot Loop of Death (BLoD) occurs when the phone repeatedly blue screens far more than the three or four times that is normal while installing the Pangu software.
That said it is fixable by restoring your iOS device and does not in any way damage your iOS device beyond a restore. Also, Pangu team does advise you to back-up your phone prior to install in case of problems, even though they state that their jailbreak software is stable, simple and fast.

The UDID is a unique 40-character key that identifies your iPhone or any Apple iDevice. It is calculated by SHA1 encoding four of the following data:
UDID = SHA1 (serial_number + ECID + wifiMac + bluetoothMac)
It’s a bit like a Social Security Number: specific to each unit; it enables Apple to immediately find the phone in its database of millions of mobile data from iPod, iPad etc. However, there’s a much simpler way to do this, and the good news is you don’t have to be a geek to understand it. We will explain how to find the UDID of your iPhone easily.
Method # 1: Conventional method: UDID via iTunes
The best known method is to find the UDID from iTunes. Nothing could be easier: connect your iPhone via USB cable, open iTunes, click your device, then on the screen summarizing the information on your iPhone, simply click the serial number. Each click will cycle and reveal clean data on your phone. Once the UDID is displayed, right click the mouse button to copy, as shown here:
This method is very easy except when your iPhone is locked by iCloud, in which case you cannot access this screen because iTunes will immediately ask you for the email and password of your iCloud account. This is where we offer a second method.
Method # 2: Recover an iPhone UDID without iTunes with Windows
Nothing could be simpler, just plug your iPhone with a USB cable into your PC and follow these instructions:
- Open the “Windows Control Panel”
- Open “Devices and Printers” (under “Hardware and Sound”)
- Find and double-click “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver” (1)
- A properties window will open, select the “Hardware” tab
- Click “Apple Mobile Device USB Driver” (2) and then “Properties” (3)
- A 3rd window opens, select the “Details” tab (4)
- In the drop down list of properties, locate the “Device Instance Path” (5)
- Once selected, the “Value” is displayed below, simply right click and select “Copy” (6)
You will see something like this:

Method # 3: Recover an iPhone UDID without iTunes with MAC
First, power on your iDevice and plug it into your Mac. Select the Apple icon at the top-left of the Menu Bar, hold the Option key on the keyboard, and select “System Information” (this menu entry replaces “About This Mac” when the Option key is depressed).
When the System Information window loads, look under the Hardware section on the left and select the entry for USB. A list of your Mac’s USB ports and any attached USB hubs will appear on the right. Find your iPhone in this list and look at the bottom panel. You’ll see a long string of numbers and letters listed for “Serial Number.” Despite the name, this is not your iPhone’s serial number; it’s the UDID.
Why find the UDID of my iPhone could be useful?
Thanks to this unique identifier, we are able to offer three services:
Recover data from the previous owner of the iCloud account (service down)
Obtain the release of the iCloud account (service down)
3) UDID Registration to get early access to iOS 9
4) UDID Registration to get early access to iOS 10 Beta 1
With service #1, you will receive the following information: Full name, Email address, iCloud (Apple ID account) and (if available): secondary email, telephone number, address and security question (without the answer). So if you think you can obtain the password from the previous owner to unlock the iCloud account, then you can use this service, it’s cheaper and faster (it takes around 3 to 7 days).
With service #2, you receive the release of iCloud immediately. If you feel that the former owner will not be able to meet you or release the password to you, it is better to disable the restriction of the iCloud account on your iPhone. This service takes 7 to 15 days. This is the only possible alternative when faced with the problem of a blocked device that requests for you to activate the phone with a login and Apple ID password.
With service #3 & #4 you get quick UDID Registration that let you join our development team so you are authorized to test out iOS beta firmwares. Our fee is cheaper than registering as a developer yourself.
We have now started to promote the service to Unlock iPhones from T-Mobile USA. This service is working for absolutely all iPhones from T-Mobile USA including the latest iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The price is expensive and slow, but it works… And because we provide this service directly from the original source, and in the unlikely event you find it cheaper elsewhere we’ll beat that price just contact us by email about it.
The only rule for using this service is that the phone must be 100% Clean (not reported as lost or stolen) and there is one easy way to check this for free using this T-Mobile link : https://www.t-mobile.com/verifyIMEI.aspx
T-Mobile USA – iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S & 5C (Express) – [Tool ID: 688]
T-Mobile USA – iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S & 5C (Slow) – [Tool ID: 469]
