    Hello everyone,

    I own an iPhone 5s and I am still on IOS 9.1. Is it safe to jailbreak it with the newest Pangu v1.3.2? It's actually available thru Pangu.io . Thru my internet research, I found a lot of sites promoting Pangu tools v1.3.0 and v1.3.1. If safe, is it worth it? If else, should I upgrade straight to IOS 9.3.3 ? But how do I do that with Apple's new policy to unsign older firmwares (If I upgrade, I won't be able to go back to unsigned 9.1)?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Looks like the latest version for iOS 9.1 jailbreak is 1.3.2

    http://en.9.pangu.io

    Yes, you cannot restore an unsigned firmware. 9.3.3 is still currently being signed. Download the ipsw for your respective device

    In iTunes, hold shift (or control on the Mac) and click restore. Choose the 9.3.3 ipsw you downloaded and it will restore to 9.3.3. Jailbreak with pangu

    I personally would go with 9.3.3 over 9.1, but there is also the concern with the semi-untethered (9.0-9.1) vs untethered (9.2-9.3.3) jailbreak

    I really appreciated your instant reply. I sincerely thought that 9.3.3 is semi-untethered and 9.1 is fully one. Pangu recently confirmed that you have to re-jailbreak your iphone after every reboot with 9.3.3.

    Please confirm your thoughts on this issue.

    Thanks!!!!

    You have to manually re-enable the jailbreak after every reboot using the pangu app

    On an untethered jailbreak, the rejailbreak process occurs automatically during boot up

    So do you confirm 9.3.3 is semi-untethered or untethered? same for 9.1.

    Thanks

    Keep 9.1, jailbreak with Pangu. 9.1 is fully untethered.

    I am still on 9.1 without any issues. If it aint broke, dont fix it :)

    By the way before I apply Pangu 1.3.2 on my phone I've read so many posts of bootloop issues with 9.1 jailbreak. Is that true?

    It's actually not a pain to jb on 9.3.3. Once you do the initial jb you don't need a PC again.
    I'd suggest going to 9.3.3 while the windows open. It's more stable than past jb once you get past doing the steps on every device restart.

    All right bro. let me think it over. You must know that it's impossible to downgrade to 9.1 from 9.3.3 since Apple unsigned 9.1. Quite a dilemna to me. Thank you for your input.

    I would just stay with 9.1 ... But it's your device so you do whatever you think is best for your needs... I'm running a 6s with 9.0.2 jb and I'm not going to update to a jailbreak that requires any profile/certificates to re-jaikbreak at any time (for this device) if iOS 10 is also jailbroken semi-untethered I won't update this phone to that either, only way I would use a semi-ut jailbreak is if when I get a new device it's the only option available, but even if iOS 10 is jb untethered I'm still about 80% sure I still won't be updating this device, only 9.0.2 problem I ever had was reboots at night from time to time but the problem was solved with a program from Cydia and I haven't had it happen once since installing that, and a family member I jb for with 9.1 had the same issue and it has also stopped the problem for them..

    But do what you want because in the end it's your device and best of luck, hope everything goes well when you inject the code... Worse case is 9.1 fails with a bootloop (highly unlikely) if you follow the instructions then you can just restore to 9.3.3 as long as you don't miss the signing window

    For me 9.3.3 has been the most stable jb in a long time. Trying to remember the last iOS that was smoother for me.

    That was an excellent argument you put here. yes I am going to stay with 9.1 indefinitely. It's an old device. yes I agree a new phone I would upgrade to 9.3.3 and stay with it. yes you made a lot of sense. That Cydia addon fixing any bootloop issue convinced me. All right, I'll let u know this week how it goes. Thank you so much for your excellent stuff you wrote here. I appreciated your time and effort to clear my mind up when awfully hesitating.

    Thanks once again, Deetlebug89!!!!

    I agree with you on 9.3.3 being more stable and less buggy than 9.1 but its semi-untethered status (this from Pangu team's public assertion) bothered me. Well, thanks for your effort to convince me. I'll promise you that I do no fully disagree on your ideas. I gotta weight pros and cons and I decided to keep 9.1 for now. If I am not happy with the performance of 9.1 jailbreak, I'll surely reconsider upgrading to 9.3.3. That's for sure!!!

    Thanks, Kilarob99!!!!

    remember pangu 9.1 jailbreak has the kernel panic you need to install pangu 9 untether from cydia before reboot or it will bootloop

    edit never mind
