So in case you are trying to jailbreak your iOS device using the new Pangu jailbreak and are experiencing errors like the progress getting Stuck at 45% , then you can try to fix such issues with the following suggestions.
Progress Stuck at 45% [ Error 0A]
In case you get an error at the 45% progress mark saying Error occurred in preparing the environment, error code (0A), you should understand that this happens when you take encrypted backups of your iOS device with iTunes. You can fix this issue by disabling Encrypted iPhone/iPad/iPod touch Backup in iTunes via the Summary tab. Just go to the Summary tab and uncheck the check box. Then create an unencrypted backup of the device and try jailbreaking again. This solution has worked for many users.
Failed Jailbreak Attempts :
In case you are not able to jailbreak your iOS device in multiple attempts, then try the following fixes :
- Switch on the Airplane mode and try jailbreaking again.
- Reboot your iOS device and computer and try again.
- Restore your device by using the restore function in the Pangu tool, and then retry jailbreaking.
- Also, before you start jailbreaking, make sure to turn off Find My iPhone, Touch ID, and Passcode before you proceed to jailbreak.
OTA Update Issues :
In case you are getting any other errors while jailbreaking your device using the Pangu 9 tool, then you need to restore your device again to iOS 9.0.2 using the manual IPSW installation method [ext link]. You will face jailbreak issues in case you have updated to iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2 via OTA update. So make sure that you install iOS manually once more before jailbreaking.
Unable to Find Settings for Tweaks :
iOS 9 does not support PreferenceLoader as of now, so users will not be able to see the preference panes of jailbreak tweaks in the stock Settings app. Now that the jailbreak has been released, we expect PreferenceLoader to be updated soon.
/usr/libexc/cydia/cydo error(2) error :
In case you get this error, you need to perform a fresh iOS 9 restore and then try jailbreaking again.
Can’t Find Cydia App :
In case you have already jailbroken but cannot find the Cydia app in your device, then launch the Photos app, run the Pangu tool again, and wait.
Greyed Out Start Button on Pangu 9 :
Many users have reported that they are stuck on the Please connect your device and press Start, where the Start button is greyed out. In case you are getting the same error, then re-install the latest version of iTunes in your Windows PC, connect your iOS device once, and try again.
