Jailbreaking iOS can unlock the full potential of your iPhone. Here's our guide on how to do it.

It’s funny how public perception alters the way we feel about things. We almost feel guilty covering the jailbreaking topic, but there’s really no reason we should. Jailbreaking is perfectly legal. If you wanted, you could put your iPhone in a toaster – we don’t recommend it, but it’s your property and you’re entitled to do whatever you want with it. And that includes installing Pangu and customising your device.

So if, like us, you’re pro-choice, let’s take a look at how to free your smartphone or tablet from iTunes. Oh, first things first – this is a jailbreak for iOS 9.2–9.3.3 on 64-bit iPhones and iPads, so update your device as normal if you’re not on the latest firmware already. Also keep in mind 64-bit iOS devices include the iPhone 5s and higher, the latest iPod Touch, the iPad mini 2 or higher, the iPad Air or higher, and the iPad Pro.

Disclaimer: Jailbreaking your iOS device can go wrong, so please, follow these instructions at your own peril. We cannot be held responsible for any damage made to your phone while following these instructions.

Step 1: Backup Your Device

Hook up your iPhone, iPod or iPad to your computer and perfume a full iTunes sync before going any further. The good news about jailbreaking is that if anything goes wrong, you can use this backup to put your device back exactly as it was. It’s a great safety net that removes much of the risk.

Step 2: Turn off Find My iPhone on your iOS device.

Go to Settings > iCloud and disable Find My iPhone. This helps stop the iPhone from phoning home.

Step 3: Download the installer from Pangu’s website.

Right now the installer is only in Chinese but an English version is coming very shortly.

Step 4: Run the pphelper installer.

This will install the PP 5.0 tool. Click the installer to begin. When the installation finishes, click the “next” button to launch the PP 5.0.

Step 5: Download the PP 5.0 components.

These components are needed for the actual jailbreaking. Click the green button to begin the download.

Step 6: Enter a fake Apple ID account.

You may be promoted to enter an Apple ID. If so, just enter any fake Apple ID account you want. This account will be used to sign the jailbreak app for your device. After you’ve entered an Apple ID, click the green button below the fields and wait as the jailbreak app gets loaded onto your device. After it gets loaded, click the green button to continue.

Step 7: Trust it.

A device management page will appear with an email address on it. You’ll need to tap Trust>Trust to accept and finish the loading of the jailbreak app.

Step 8: Launch the jailbreak app on your iOS device.

Once Step 7 is completed go back to your iOS device’s home screen and tap on the jailbreak tool to launch it.

Step 9: Allow notifications.

Be sure to enable Notifications when asked on the jailbroken device.

Step 10: Tap and lock.

Tap the circle on the screen and now lock your device. Your device will need to restring itself, so wait for that to happen. Bear in mind that this process can take a while. Patience is your friend here, so embrace it.

Step 11: You’re done!

Now, unlock your device, and you’ll see the brown Cydia app icon on your home screen. Congratulations! You, and your iPhone, are now free! The customisation options you always dreamed of are just around the corner…
