The last couple of days have been incredible for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users that were desperately looking to liberate their devices. China’s Pangu team has released the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. As you know, Apple devices were not designed to be jailbroken. So, a few problems are bound to occur if you jailbreak your iDevice. Pangu’s jailbreaking tool is compatible with the iOS 9.2, 9.2.1, 9.3, 9.3.1, 9.3.2, and 9.3.3 firmwares.
iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak: Are you facing any of these problems?
The jailbreak is available only for Windows and supports only 64-bit iDevices. Notably, it’s a semi-untethered/tethered jailbreak. It means you have to get your phone jailbroken every time you reboot it, though you can easily do it using the PP app. Let’s take a look at some of the most common issues with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and how to fix them.
Pangu’s jailbreak tool not accepting your Apple ID
It’s because the tool does not accept Apple ID emails with special characters. Your Apple ID shouldn’t have any special characters in it. You may consider creating a separate Apple ID for jailbreaking.
Why is Cydia crashing?
Since Pangu’s latest tool is semi-untethered/tethered, it requires users to get their iPhones or iPads jailbroken every time you reboot it. Here’s how to re-jailbreak with Pangu on iOS 9.3.3 after reboot.
The jailbreak tool fails to open
Are you trying to open the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak on Mac? It works only on Windows. Sometimes when you close the tool on your Windows PC and then try to re-open it, it fails to open back up again. In that case, restart your PC and try to launch the app again. Another reason could be that Windows 10 has enhanced security features to prevent your PC from being infected with malware. So, try to run the app as an administrator and allow access through the firewalls.
Even though Pangu’s tool is compatible with the iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3, you are recommended to upgrade your device to the iOS 9.3.3. You’ll get the latest firmware and security fixes.
FaceTime not working after the jailbreak
Reboot your device and then follow these instructions to re-jailbreak with Pangu after reboot. FaceTime should start working if you re-jailbreak properly.
What tweaks are compatible with the iOS 9.3.3?
Here’s the full list of tweaks and extensions compatible with the iOS 9.3.3. Since the jailbreak was only recently released with no warning ahead of time, the developers might not yet have updated their tweaks. If you end up installing a tweak that is not compatible, it could cause app crashes or springboard crashes.
Also, Pangu suggests that you turn off the passcode and disable Find My Phone before jailbreaking. Don’t turn on the Airplane Mode because the latest tool relies on the Internet to verify a free certificate.
