Latest jailbreak issues associated with iOS 9.3.3 include a failed jailbreak, Apple ID issues, FaceTime not working following jailbreaking, Cydia crashing, and unfortunately there are more. We’ll also be showing you how Location Services can be fixed following the installation of the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak.
The easiest thing for uses to do could be to simply wait, because we understand the Pangu team are already working on fixing some of the more common jailbreak problems with iOS 9.3.3. You don’t need to take it anywhere for help, and you don’t need to wipe your phone and start over. If you run into problems with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, it is possible to do a complete restore and start again from scratch, but that’s the final option.
Pangu Won’t Open
You need to remember that the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool only works on Windows. At this point in time it doesn’t work on a Mac. So, if you’ve opened the jailbreak tool on Windows and experienced an issue, or it closed, you need to completely restart the computer before trying to re-open it.
Ensure that you are allowing access, and remember that the firewall needs access to the tool too.
Pangu Won’t Accept Your Apple ID
Entering your Apple ID is just part of using the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak on your PC. It’s our recommendation that you use a different Apple ID; one that’s not connected to all your personal information.
You’ll know that the jailbreak tool is having issues with your Apple ID if you see a crying computer. It may be that you need to turn off the two-factor authentication in your iCloud settings. Again, it’s our recommendation that you use the second ID that doesn’t need this, or alternatively, to use the no-computer-needed jailbreak which doesn’t ask for your Apple ID.
iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak Fails
Follow these instructions if you’ve tried completing the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and you can see that there’s an error message in Chinese.
- Restart both your computer and your iPhone;
- Next, make sure that Find My iPhone is turned off and that you are, in fact, on iOS 9.3.3.
- In addition, make sure that PassCode has been turned off.
If the problem still exists, your next step should be to Restore: this will ensure that your iPhone doesn’t have any Over-the-Air updates. These updates can interfere with the jailbreaking process.
Fix Location Services
We’ve received reports from some users that the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak breaks Location Services. We understand how annoying this would be, but if you do run into this problem there are several simple fixes.
Possibly the easiest fix is to go into Settings – General – Reset – then Reset Network Settings. This won’t erase your data but it will wipe all your network information, such as Wi-Fi connections. Try turning on Location Services when your phone reboots.
If you still have a problem, then the iPhone should be restarted: launch the PP jailbreak app again and re-jailbreak. Try turning Location Services back on once you’ve completed these steps.
If you still haven’t resolved the issue, your final attempt should be to download libLocation from Cydia and install it onto your iPhone.

Cydia is Not Installed
Given that we are talking about a buggy jailbreak solution, there is the possibility that Cydia app to refuse installation on your iPhone. There is no fix for that, just repeat the jailbreak procedure until everything starts to work.
After several attempts Cydia still not working, then a restore will be the only solution.
