At the unveiling of iOS 9 at WWDC 2015, what we came across was a sincere effort from Apple to evolve its operating system for iPhone/iPad. Rather than announcing fancy new changes to the UI or throwing in plethora of new gimmicky features, Apple has tried to nurture its iOS ecosystem in order to provide users with the most intuitive, complete and responsive mobile operating system. While there weren’t any groundbreaking updated or features announced, Apple still kept all of us interested with a huge list of updates viz a completely revamped search screen or the supercharged Siri and proactive assistant or the hugely popular split-screen support and picture-in-picture that are bound to make you fall in love with this update from Apple.
Consequently, Apple released the final Public version of iOS 9 in mid of September followed by an incremental update to fix ‘Slide to Upgrade’ screen bug with iOS 9.0.1 and then 9.0.2 in late September. While the previous version of iOS viz iOS 8.4 was successfully Jailbroken by the TaIG community, we now see a breakthrough from the Pangu community by coming up with a successful way to Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 on iPhone/iPad using their Pangu 9 Tool. So then, for all those who can’t wait to jailbreak their iOS 9.0-9.0.2 running iPhone/iPad right away, we bring to you the complete step-by-step tutorial on how you can successfully Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 on iPhone/iPad using Pangu.

The reason we do not recommend Over-the-air (OTA) update to iOS 9.0-9.0.2 is because OTA updates do not go well with Pangu Jailbreak and thus might lead you to boot loop error. In case you had last updated to iOS 9.0-9.0.2 via OTA update, first restore your iDevice to a previous iOS version and then update to iOS 9.0-9.0.2 via the method explained above. Thereafter, restore the backup you just made in order to get all of your data back on your iDevice.
Note 5 : Disable all antivirus programs and firewalls temporarily that could prevent Pangu jailbreak from connecting to the internet.
That’s all! Well then, all set to proceed further? Now you just need to follow this detailed step-by-step tutorial.
How To Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 on iPhone/iPad using Pangu (Tutorial)
Step 1 : Switch on Airplane mode on your iPhone/iPad.
Step 2 : Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod running iOS 9.0-9.0.2 to your computer.
Step 3 : Launch the Pangu Jailbreak Tool and hit ‘Start’.

Step 5 : Sit back while the process initiates and proceeds. After a while, your iDevice would reboot after which you would be asked to first unlock your iPhone/iPad and put it on Airplane Mode once again.
Step 6 : Once done, the Jailbreak process would further proceed. You would then be prompted to open up the Pangu app that would have been installed as a part of this Jailbreak process itself followed by a prompt to give access to Photos.
