Chinese iPhone hackers just released a new jailbreak tool for the latest versions of iOS and not one day later, we already have a better option.
On Monday we told you about the newly updated Pangu jailbreak tool, which offered anyone with a Windows PC a means to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad running any version of iOS from iOS 9.2 through to the just-released iOS 9.3.3. There are some big caveats beyond the need for a Windows PC though, namely that this was a “semi-untethered” jailbreak that require a few extra steps each time a phone is rebooted.
Now, just one day later, there’s a new and improved jailbreak that could be the simplest way to jailbreak and iPhone that we’ve seen in years.
In a video created by YouTube’s resident jailbreak tutorial maker iCrackUriDevice, we get a full walkthrough of how to use JailbreakMe9.com, a new tool that lets iPhone and iPad users jailbreak their phones using a mobile website accessible through Safari. It really doesn’t get any easier than this. There are still a few caveats you’ll want to make note of — this jailbreak is still semi-untethered for the time being — but it’s very straightforward.
The full video is embedded below, and then you’ll find a timeline so you can skip around to the parts you need.
