The rate at which Apple is pushing iOS updates out at has been surprisingly fast and this is most likely the reason why we haven’t seen a jailbreak for some time. There is a very high possibility that the Cupertino company has managed to patch an awful lot of usable exploit with their updates, whether they meant to or not. But, despite a long absence from the scene and rather than conceding defeat, Pangu has come through with a brand new jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3.1.

PPHelper was a combined effort between Pangu and PP Assistant in China and, although we weren’t expecting it now, we had been given a hint that one was imminent. Pangu were co-hosts at MOSEC, the mobile security conference that is held yearly, when it was held at the start of July in Shanghai. As well as showing off an iOS 10 jailbreak for iOS 10 beta 1, they also hinted that a new iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak could be on its way and here it is.
Can Everyone Use PPHelper :
In a word, no. Sadly, the PPHelper jailbreak will not be usable by all iOS users – first, it will not work on 32-bit devices. However, since the majority of active devices are 64-bit, this shouldn’t have too much of an impact. Second, though, the jailbreak tool is only compatible with Windows at the moment although we have no doubt that a Mac version will appear at some point. And, just to top it off, it’s in Chinese. An English version will be released at some point but, so nobody missed out, we have prepared a step-by-step tutorial, in English, for you to follow – more about that a bit later on.
