Ever since iOS 9 was released, it became clear that, although it was a popular iOS version, it wasn’t without its problems. Shortly after Pangu provided a jailbreak for iOS 9.1 [ext link]. Apple began reeling out updates to fix bugs and, in the process, probably knocked several possible jailbreak exploits on the head. This is the most likely reason why there has not been a usable jailbreak sine iOS 9.1 – until this week. In a surprise move, Pangu and PP Assistant have released a bend new jailbreak called PPHelper for iOS 9.2.

Now, although this is fantastic news, probably the best we have had in some time it isn’t so great for some iOS users. First off, it will only work on Windows, not on the Mac at this stage – we are expecting a Mac tool at some point but if we can find a way around it in the meantime, we’ll let you know. Secondly, if you own a 64-bit device you will be fine as the jailbreak is compatible with those – just not for any 32-bit device. This shouldn’t really come as too much of a surprise since Apple is starting to drop support for these older devices as well, paving the way ahead for the newer generation of iPhone and iPad.
Lastly, if you can’t read Chinese, you may struggle with PPHelper as it is only in Chinese at the moment. There is going to be an English version soon but, to help you out, later on, we will give you a link taking you to an English tutorial that will get you through the entire process.
