Step 5: Pangu will take some time to detect your device. Once that is done, click on the blue “Start Jailbreak” button.



Step 6: If you’ve taken a backup of your device using iTunes, and followed the other instructions mentioned in Step 3 , then click on the Already Did to proceed to the jailbreak.



Step 7: The jailbreak process will start and will display the status such as:

  • Starting jailbreak ..
