Preparing for Pangu 9.1 Jailbreak :
1. Backup Your iOS Device
Remember, when you are in the habit of regularly jailbreaking your device, there are chances of something going wrong with the jailbreak process. It is a good habit to backup your iOS device regularly via iCloud or iTunes, so that you never lose your data even if you have to fresh restore your device.
2. Fresh Restore to iOS 9.1 using IPSW
If you have jailbroken your device on iOS 9 , dont proceed with this step and stay at iOS 9. For other who have updated to iOS 9.1 via the OTA update method, if you want to jailbreak your device when an iOS 9.1 jailbreak comes out, then remember that OTA updates do not work well with modern jailbreaks and are known to cause issues. Hence, avoid the fuss and fresh restore your device to iOS 9 using the manual IPSW installation method. Make sure that you do this right before you jailbreak, as any existent bugs in iOS 9 will have been ironed out by then and you will get a very stable and clean firmware to install the jailbreak on.
3. Clean Up the Device Storage
Whether you jailbreak or not, it is a good habit to regularly clean up your device. Uninstall the apps that you don’t use. Also, delete the photos, videos, and music that you no longer need or transfer them to your iCloud account or an external storage. This will ensure that your device has more than enough space for the jailbreak.
