    I need to restore my iphone but I want to stay at ios 9.3.3. Can I do that from itunes without having to update to 9.3.4?
    I restarted but now I cannot re-jailbreak using Pangu on the phone so I need to restore.
    Thank you

    Yes for now as Apple is still signing 9.3.3

    In future just restart your phone and it will remove jailbreak. Then from settings do erase all content.

    The only way for me to restore on itunes is to restore & update to ios 9.3.4. How do you suggest staying on 9.3.3?
    I restarted and removed the jailbreak but when I try to re jailbreak, the Pangu app just crashes when trying to open it, so I think the only way for me is to restore.

    You need to download the iOS 9.3.3 ips firmware for your device first. https://ipsw.me

    You need to download the IPSW file from an external source say IPSW Downloads then before you click restore you need to hold down the option key I think its CTRL on windows, and then select the IPSW. I would make it fast as Apple will stop signing any minute.

    But why is that I cannot re-jailbreak using the Pangu app. I can do it with no problem on another iphone where I used the first method to jailbreak instead of this new cydia impactor one.

    You never ever do an erase all on a JB device.

    Have you tried Cydia Eraser (formerly known as Cydia Impactor for iOS) from Saurik? It can remove all data from your device and return it to non-jailbroken state.

    I would recommend restoring via iTunes over using cydia eraser if you have the opportunity (iOS 9.3.3 is currently still being signed)

    Please please stop, it would generate one of those lovely 'I erased all content and now I'm stuck on Apple logo' threads that we all love so much.
