Every iOS user desires to have make their iPhone, iPad or iTouch look more unique. Maximizing your iPhone can only be done when it is jailbroken. There are several reasons to jailbreak iOS and we have listed 20 important reasons to jailbreak iOS in our previous article. Now, in this tutorial, we be looking at how to jaiilbreak iOS 9.2 to 9.3.3 using Pangu’s Chinese version.
Why the Chinese version? Why not an English version of Pangu? The English is available but has some limitations. The English version of Pangu comes with a self-sign IPA file which must be installed on your device using Cydia Impactor. This IPA file is a certificate file which expires every 7 days and need to be re-installed again on the 7th day or whenever you reboot your device.
The Chinese version of Pangu on the other hand installs an enterprise developer certificate on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch which should last for a year (if Apple doesn’t revoke it). However, It has it’s own drawback too: Pangu randomly connects to 25pp server looking for new certificates to replace the one on your device if it gets revoked.
