How to Fix Pangu Jailbreak Errors:

While Pangu is a reliable and safe jailbreak, some people have encountered a few errors. These are detailed below, along with their solutions:

  • Stuck at 45%

This error tends to appear when you back up your data using encrypted backups in iTunes. To fix, open iTunes > Summary and disable Encrypted Backups. Take an unencrypted backup of your data and then attempt the jailbreak again.

  • Jailbreak won’t Install

If you have tried several times to jailbreak your device using Pangu and it isn’t working, follow these steps in order:

  1. Enable Airplane mode on your device and try the jailbreak again
  2. If that doesn’t work, reboot your computer and your device and have another go
  3. If not, open Pangu and use the Restore function to restore your device and then try again

Do check that you have disabled Find my iPhone/iPad, and your passcode

  • OTA on iOS 9 Error

If you are on iOS 9 and have updated using the OTA method, the jailbreak will not work. You must update manually. Be aware that this may now put you on an iOS version that cannot be jailbroken so always, whenever you update your device, use one of the iTunes methods to ensure that you can install future jailbreaks.

  • Cannot Find Preferences for Tweaks

There is no support for PreferenceLoader in iOS 9, so you won’t see the jailbreak tweaks preferences in your Settings app. This may change in the future.

  • Cannot Find Cydia

If you jailbreak, but the Cydia app is not there, open Photos on your device and run Pangu again; wait, and you should see Cydia appear.

  • Pangu Start Button is Greyed Out

To get past this error, make sure you have the latest iTunes version on your computer, reconnect your device and try the jailbreak again.
