Pangu Releases Semi-Tethered Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak, Complaints About Security Issues

There are a lot of issues surrounding the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak released by Pangu. The Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak allows users of the iPhone to jail iOS 9.2 and 9.3.3. Further to the long cat-and-mouse game that has been played by Pangu and Apple over the jailbreak crisis, it looks like Apple is in charge currently.

Apple has successfully defied all jailbreak attempts by TaiG, Pangu, and the other jailbreakers. When Pangu came up with the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak, Apple immediately set down to make them useless, and it was successful in rendering the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak  useless. The Pangu jailbreak now works only on iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 10.

Games N Guide reported that Pangu had devised a jailbreak that was semi-tethered. This has been a lease of life for the jailbreak community as there are no jailbreaks available for Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak.

The last full jailbreak was available for the iOS 9.3.1. As there was no jailbreak available for iOS 9.3.2, it was a smart choice that Pangu and TaiG didn’t waste their time on iOS 9.3.2 and went straight for the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak.

Apple is a step ahead of the jailbreaking community since the tethered version of Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak coming out. Apple is soon going to roll out the iOS 10, which will immediately render the jailbreak for iOS 9.3 useless. Pangu has nonetheless not given up on the fight and has released the English version of the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak. They are working on releasing the untethered version.

The install guide that Pangu released for the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak isn’t an easy tool to use. Forbes reported that the tool itself doesn’t have any security issues per say, but then there have been reports from users that after they jailbroke their devices, there have been complaints about unauthorized access to their different apps including Paypal and Facebook. 9to5mac.com has reported that there have been issues in various services that contain credit and debit card information.

Putting this in perspective, a small number of people have reported this problem in comparison to a large number of people who have jailbroken their Apple iPhone. Still, this is obviously a serious issue, and Pangu and other jailbreakers have come out to state that the security breaches aren’t likely to have cropped up after the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak was used on the devices. These issues are similar to the security breaches that are often seen because of phishing emails and unauthorized access.

Jailbreakers have come out to extend their support to Pangu. They said that while Pangu worked on the English version of the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak, the Chinese version isn’t only their handiwork. Other people have tweaked around with the software, and this could pose a problem.

It was also stated that Pangu has always had an active community of jailbreakers who correspond with each other when there are issues, and it is likely this issue will get sorted by them.

It isn’t Pangu that is behind the security breaches that some users are facing after using the Apple iOS 9.3 Jailbreak. Pangu is a company worth millions of dollars and they would not tarnish their reputation by engaging in such activity. It is likely that the Chinese version of the jailbreak might have some issues that are giving rise to these problems.

  1. The information is false. Chinese version of the jailbreak is safe as it can be for a jailbreak although my friend tested chinese version and after 2 hours his passwords were actually changed like paypal… It’s a keylogger. There was an application people used before which was a password manager which got hacked, saurik also had addressed this and said the likely hood is hackers used the release of the jailbreak to hide the fact they were stealing accounts and making it look like it was the jailbreak but they both recommend English version which doesn’t make sense right now… The keylogger remembers what you press on the keyboard… Twitter: Glad1atorX
