Bootloop iPhone

The Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9 has been working quite well for most users, however many are reporting that their device goes into a bootloop, an issue which has since been dubbed as BLoD or BootLoop of death. This issue occurs during the process or after it has completed. Luckily for us, there is a simple solution to the bootloop issue, as shared by this Reddit user. In this post we will guide you step by step on how to get rid of the bootloop of death problem and continue using your iOS 9 device after jailbreaking it using Pangu9 tool.

How to fix bootloop (Bootloop of Death) on iOS 9 jailbreak

1 ) First of all you need to download the correct IPSW file for the iOS version you want to jailbreak. You can find a list of all iOS 9.0.2 versions here.

2 ) Once you have downloaded the IPSW file for your device, put your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in DFU mode. To do so connect your iOS device to computer, turn the device off and back on, and then quickly press the home button when the device is booting up.

3 ) Now restore the device using iTunes. Remember, you need to restore using the IPSW you just downloaded and not directly. To do so, press the ‘Alt’ button from the keyboard and then click on the ‘Restore iPhone’ button, and point to the IPSW file from the window. If you are using a Mac then press the ‘Option’ button.

4 ) When setting up your device enter your WiFi password and enable location services. During the process do not enable Touch ID/passcode or iCloud, as you will have to disable these during the jailbreak process anyway.

5 ) Now launch the Pangu9 tool and jailbreak your device. Once it has been jailbroken launch Cydia and upgrade to latest version of Cydia Substrate.

6 ) Finally power off your device and turn it back on using the power button.

That’s it! Now your device should not be having the bootloop issue. You can test this by rebooting the iPhone or iPad by pressing power and home buttons. When everything is fine, go ahead and restore your iTunes or iCloud backup.

    Everything was fine but when I finished restoring the backup data (iOS 8.4), it will become BLoD. I have tried for 3 times, the same result I got.

      This JB is for iOS 9 not the obsolete iOS 8.4

        iOS 8.4 is my iTunes backup file, I restored to my current iOS version is 9.0.2.

    • Was your device previously jailbroken on iOS 8.4 when you made the backup via iTunes? I noticed that some files from a previous jailbreak get included into the iTunes backup, and can interfere with the iOS 9 jailbreak once you install iOS 9, rejailbreak, and restore from the old backup.

        Yes, my device’s previous backup data was jailbroken iOS 8.4.
        Here are what I did:
        1. Restore device to 9.0.2
        2. Jailbreak my device using Pangu 1.0.1
        3. Update Cydia Substrate (Everything was fine, I have tested reboot several times)
        4. Restore the backup data via iTunes
        5. Stuck at Apple logo.

        • It looks like something got carried over from your previous jailbreak that makes your iTunes backup unusable… 🙁

          • DastanLim

            Yes, I think so too. Probably conflicted by preference files of Cydia tweaks. Now even I used the new backup data running iOS 9.0.2, whenever the data is restored it will be stuck at Apple Logo. Do you have any solutions?
