There were times when Zephyr jailbreak tweak multitasking was the only fun gestures delivered to jailbroken older iPhones. With iOS 9 multitasking jailbreak is not that necessary however it still adds features that Apple didn’t make public yet. If you have iPhone that is updated or downgraded to iOS 9 firmware version you can also get the app and enjoy Zephyr-like gestures to easily switch between applications and doing other things.

Have you given it a try? How much do you like Multitasking iOS 9 on your ‘fruit’ phone?
Sometimes you wish to dismiss and get rid of some Apple options. For example, the iOS 9 official release brought the Back to App option that exists as a shortcut on your iPhone. You can turn off Back to App iOS 9 feature if you have a jailbroken smartphone and like to use popular jailbreak tweaks you can find on Cydia store.
The iOS 9 update adds the menu in the top left size of your Status bar and it makes it possible to return to the previous application without the need to launch your App Switcher. While the option is useful the shortcut doesn’t look too nice since it covers your WiFi signal and network indicator. This might be uncomfortable when you need to check your signal. Luckily you can dismiss this shortcut if you jailbreak iOS 9 – 9.0.2 iPhone using Pangu program. Remember that iOS 9.1 is currently unjailbreakable.
iOS 9 Back to App Disable / Dismiss / Turn Off Guide
Step 1. Download BreadcrumbsAway tweak available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository. This is the fastest way to dismiss the annoying shortcut.
Step 2. Install this free of charge tweak on your iPhone.
Step 3. iOS 9 back to app turn off is simple. It doesn’t actually remove the useful shortcut. Enable the tweak.
Step 4. Now when you need to look up your indicators on the Home screen you can swipe to the left on your shortcut ‘Back to App’ in status bar and this breadcrumb will hide to reveal WiFi and Cellular signals. Isn’t it neat?
It’s great when you can dismiss the tool that bothers you and still keep the great iOS 9 feature available for use. It is strange that Apple didn’t think about such a simple way of hiding the shortcut.
3D Touch is exclusive iOS 9 feature for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It is not officially supported by older Apple smartphones but it is still possible to get iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 3D Touch option. The tool we’ll talk about works even on iPhone 4S and 5. All devices that are running iOS 9 are supported.
3D Touch iOS 9 iPhone 6 – 4S feature is pretty cool if you are jailbroken. There is a tweak on Cydia that adds peek and pop options on your particular gadget giving you the feeling of real 3D Touch.
How to Add 3D Touch on iPhone 6 / 5s / 4s
Step 1. Make sure you are running iOS 9, 9.0.1 or 9.0.2 since only these firmwares are jailbreakable and use iOS 9 – 9.0.2 Pangu jailbreak if you are not jailbroken yet.
Step 2. Download UniversalForce tweak from this repository on Cydia: http://repo.ioscreatix.com/.
Step 3. Install the jailbreak tweak for iOS 9.
Step 4. Start using it. When you launch any application you’ll be able to peek-&-pop by pressing short and swiping up. Thus, for instance, launch your iOS 9 Camera Roll. Press the image for a short period of time and you’ll peek at it. Swipe up to display the photograph preview. This is pretty similar to how real 3D Touch works [learn how to easily enable / disable 3D Touch on iPhone 6s].
It is possible to peek and pop and get quick previews of map locations, your text messages, mails and other information throughout the system. You’ll feel as if you have a newer iPhone model with modern features and options that are ordinary available to iPhone 6s Plus / iPhone 6s.
Any application that offers links and mails will be supported by the tweak to provide you with peek and pop experience.
Fans of Find My Friends service can now use on the iCloud site. It is a curious addition because the Find My Friends is not a web application. Still it is now included into iCloud.com release. The Cupertino-based giant is enhancing its services and the company can boast numerous iCloud-connected services [for example, Maps, iWork and others].
The new isn’t shocking, of course. Find My Friends Apple launched is just another way to improve the company’s sites and services. A lot of iPhone 6s and 6s Plus users can enjoy a lot of new features and options, those who updated to iOS 9 and 9.1 on other earlier iPhone model can get bunch of new emojis and other additions, and now users who visit iCloud.com for different purposes can start using Find My Friends tool.
Previous this was just an application you could download. Now it’s an independent service that is a stock application and you cannot remove it just like you cannot delete other stock apps offered by iOS platform unless you jailbreak iOS 9 – 9.0.2 and find Cydia jailbreak tweaks that make it possible to do.
You cannot jailbreak iOS 9.1 since this platform kills the exploits used by hackers. Users who have updated to 9.1 version can now downgrade to 9.0.2 and users who are still running iOS 8 can upgrade directly to 9.0.2 while Apple keeps signing it.
What new options do you enjoy the most on Apple mobile firmware? Are you excited to see Find My Friends among the services offered by the iPhone maker?
The official launch of iOS 9.1 brought a minor update with bug fixes and exploits patch on iPhone and iPad. Users who don’t care about jailbreaking can easily download the new 9.1 firmware using direct links for ipsw files and users who prefer having Cydia on their Home screen are able to either downgrade or update to 9.0.2 which is the latest jailbroken version available today.
Apple didn’t stop working on its firmware updates. The company is believed to start iOS 9.2 beta testing though developers and public beta testers see no iOS 9.2 beta download links at the moment. The reports state that the iPhone maker is testing its next upgrade internally right now meaning it will soon roll out the beta to devs and testers and later to public users.
iOS 9.2 beta what’s new. This is one of the top questions asked by curious users who can’t wait to peer inside the next beta update. Apple will absolutely fix some issues in this upcoming firmware version but right now we know nothing about it. Analysts note that increase in 9.2 traffic meaning this platform should exist in the future however it is unclear if any new options or features will be added to it.
The current iOS 9.1 release doesn’t offer any major changes. This is only a minor upgrade with some new emojis added and problem solutions. Oh yeah, it also kills the exploits found by Pangu team and makes 9.1 jailbreak impossible right now.
Maybe the company will present even more emoji icons and some other changes for sure. We might learn about the new improvements as soon as the first iOS 9.2 beta will roll out.
Is it possible to downgrade iOS 9.1 to 9.0.2 on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad? This is possible for as long as Apple continues to sign version 9.0.2. The Cupertino-based company stops signing the previous operating system it releases for the iDevices soon after the new update arrives.
For example, if you already installed 9.1 version [you can download direct ipsw file of iOS 9.1 for your phone, tablet or update via OTA] and don’t like it you have time to return to the previous release.
How to Downgrade iOS 9.1 to iOS 9 [9.0.2]

Step 3. Remember to backup no matter what you do. It is an important step for any manipulation you are planning to do with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Step 4. Unfortunately you can only get back to iOS 9.0.2 version. It is impossible to downgrade iOS 9.1 to 9 or downgrade iOS 9.1 to 9.0.1 firmware.
Step 5. You are doing everything at your personal risk. If the checkmark is still green you can download iOS 9.0.2 ipsw file if you don’t have it on your computer. Use direct download links for 9.0.2 iPhone, iPad or iPod touch version you have.
Step 6. Launch iTunes on computer.
Step 7. Enter the DFU state on iDevice: connect to Mac / PC and hold Power or Sleep / Wake button to swipe the device off. Keep holding the Power option for about 3 seconds. Don’t release the Sleep / Power button and start pressing on Home button for about 10 seconds. Let go off the Power option but still press on the Home button. You will get the message from iTunes that you device is detected in Recovery mode.
Step 8. Press on OK.
Step 9. Windows users should press Shift + Restore on iTunes and Mac users should click on Alt / Option + Restore in iTunes.
Step 10. Point to your 9.0.2 ipsw file.
Step 11. Choose Restore and Update.
Step 12. Continue by pressing Next, Agree and wait for iTunes to download the iOS 9.0.2 and restore your iPhone to this previous firmware version.

Step 14. Remember to restore your information and restore from backup.
The exploits used by iOS 9 – 9.0.2 Pangu jailbreak are patched in iOS 9.1 which you can download through direct ipsw links on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Is it possible to avoid this upgrade if you are still on iOS 8 platform and still jailbreak? Everyting is possible if you know all the most recent Apple news.
Firstly, you can use iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak on the iDevice since Pangu supports this platform without many issues [most Pangu bugs were fixed in the program updates]. Secondly, you can follow our guide and update to iOS 9.0.2 right from iOS 8 firmware version.
How to Install iOS 9.0.2 on iDevice to Jailbreak
Step 1. Use iOS 9.0.2 direct ipsw file to download it on your iPhone or other iDevice that is still running iOS 8.x firmware. Apple is still signing this version you can download it as long as the Cupertino-bsed giant doesn’t stop to sign it [this can happen any time soon].
Step 2. Once you download the firmware on your gadget you can use iTunes to install it manually.
Step 3. When you are running iOS 9.0.2 version you can jailbreak your smartphone or tablet.
Step 4. That’s it.
It is also possible to downgrade from iOS 9.1 to 9.0.2 while Apple is supporting iOS 9.0.2 by signing it.
Before you proceed with the instruction above you are advised to create a backup copy of your device. This will save all your data and information in case anything goes wrong. You don’t want to lose all your details, right?
Remember to also visit https://ipsw.me/9.0.2 as this site shows the real-tim iOS 9.0.2 signing status. As soon as Apple stops singing it you will know and won’t try to update since you’ll fail anyways.
With iOS 9.1 minor update users who installed this firmware version wonder if it is possible to jailbreak iOS 9.1 or not? You know that there is iOS 9 – 9.0.2 Pangu jailbreak tool that works on three versions of iPhone and iPad mobile operating system [9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2]. What should you do if you installed 9.1 and wish to also download jailbreak tweaks.
As noted by Apple, it managed to patch the holes in iOS 9.1 code. Pangu team also reported that two of their vulnerabilities were killed. Can I jailbreak iOS 9.1 firmware version? No, you cannot right now because there is no TaiG jailbreak available and Pangu tool is ‘killed’ with the update.
If you still want to use iOS 9.1 jailbreak you should get back to 9.0.2 firmware. It is still possible to downgrade 9.1 to 9.0.2 because the Cupertino-based company is signing the previous version. As soon as Apple stops signing this you won’t be able to return the older operating system and will have to use the most recent one which cannot be jailbroken.
The ‘fruit’ firm thanked Pangu hackers [here is how to avoid Pangu boot loop] for finding two exploits. The company added release notes to 9.1 firmware and noted that a problem was in the DNS library and it is fixed as well as corruption memory problem that was present in the kernel.
Maybe Pangu will find new holes in the firmware code and present iOS 9.1 jailbreak tool soon but no one can guarantee this. For example, if you are running iOS 8.4.1 you cannot jailbreak it. At the same time you can untether iOS 8.4 and earlier firmwares, iOS 9 – 9.0.2.
Users who have the Apple Watch device can download WatchOS 2.0.1 and get some improvements. Last week was rick for updates from the ‘fruit’ giant and hackers. Apple offered iOS 9.1 direct links and this firmware killed exploits used in Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9 – 9.0.2. Pangu updated their program and fixed bugs however they still didn’t find a way to jailbreak 9.1 platform. Apple also updated iTunes to version 12.3.1.
If you wish to improve Apple Watch battery life you can install WatchOS 2 update. Apple promises that this version of its mobile firmware can do some miracles. For example, it addresses some problems users faced and offers improved battery life for those smartwatch owners who were stalled by application updates.
The original WatchOS 2 upgrade was offered a month ago. The newest version is meant to fix all known problems. As Apple notes, this version 2.0.1 enhances battery performance by fixing the issues that were impacting it. It solves the problem with software updating being stalled. Besides, your location data should be now propertly upgrading since the bug that prevented it from doing this is now fixed.
If you had issues with iPhone syncing your Calendar events to your iWatch – download WatchOS 2.0.1 and solve this bug. When you use your digital touch after upgrade it will send from email and not phone number as it sometimes happened on previous mobile OS.
If you are using Windows computer and running iOS 9, 9.0.2 or 9.0.1 firmware version on iPhone – you can use Pangu update 9 that supports this firmware and makes it possible to untether jailbreak modern iPhones, iPads and iPods touch models.
Users who are already jailbroken and don’t plan to install iOS 9.1 version on their iDevice [this firmware is unjailbreakable right now because Apple killed the exploits found by Pangu team in earlier iOS 9 releases] – can grab Pangu untethered package iOS 9 update from Cydia store, solve some issues and improve the bootup procedure.
How to Download Pangu Untether Package Update iOS 9
Step 1. Launch Cydia store on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
Step 5. If you update the new package you should have no issues with your bootup on 64-bit gadget. You should have no issues using functions in Xcode. Other problems were also solved.
For example, there were reports about Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9 – 9.0.2 causing Boot Loop of Death [here is how to avoid BLOD bug] and the main reason were unclean reboots. Users were advised to avoid rebooting and use only the clean method. However now with the package update the chance of you getting boot failure should be lower.
Users who didn’t jailbreak yet but installed iOS 9.1 and wish to get back to iOS 9 are able to downgrade. Apple is still signing its previous firmware version so iPhone and iPad owners have a chance to jailbreak with Pangu if they return the jailbreakable operating system on their gadgets.
Mac users can run Pangu jailbreaking tool on their OS X computers if they install virtual machine. The Pangu program currently supports on Windows platform.
