The latest Pangu jailbreak tool allows the user to jailbreak iOS devices on the demand. The user can easily jailbreak the iOS devices by running the click-to-jailbreak app, and also easily remove the jailbreak by rebooting the iOS devices. In other words, the user has full control to enable or disable the jailbreak functionality.
Pangu9 is the name for a series of jailbreaks for all devices on iOS 9.0 through 9.1 (untethered), 9.2 through 9.3.3 on 64-bit devices (semi-untethered) and Apple TV HD running tvOS 9.0 - 9.0.1 (untethered).
The initial version was released on 14 October 2015 and supported iOS 9.0 through 9.0.2, untethered. On 11 March 2016, Pangu9 1.3.0 (Windows)/1.1.0 (Mac) was released to jailbreak iOS 9.1 untethered on 64-bit devices.
On 24 July 2016, a new version which jailbreaks semi-untethered iOS 9.2 through 9.3.3 was released on Pangu's Chinese site. An English version was released on Pangu's English site a few days later on 29 July 2016.

The RedSn0w jailbreak tool is probably the most widely known iOS jailbreak tool available. Originally known as QuickPwn, RedSn0w is developed by the iPhone Dev-Team and allows you to jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running a variety of firmware versions. It supports both the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems allowing just about anyone to easily jailbreak their iOS device both tethered and untethered. More information on the RedSn0w tool.
The PwnageTool is a Mac OS X jailbreak tool that creates a custom pre-jailbroken iOS firmware file that must be restored to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad for it to become jailbroken. The benefits of using the PwnageTool, rather than RedSn0w, is that it allows iPhone unlockers to update to the latest firmware without updating their baseband in the process. Additionally, the PwnageTool gives you full control over your jailbreak; allowing you to customize advance options such as your root partition size. Learn more about PwnageTool.
The GreenPois0n jailbreak tool has been known as the quickest way to jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and even Apple TV 2G. It is developed by Chronic-Dev and provides an untethered jailbreak for a variety of firmware versions. GreenPois0n works on both the Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. Learn more about GreenPois0n.
The LimeRa1n jailbreaking tool was released by a hacker who goes by the name of GeoHot to stop Chronic Dev from releasing a bootrom exploit called SHAtter. This is because GeoHot thought it would be better to conserve the SHAtter exploit for future jailbreaks. Just like the BlackRa1n Jailbreaking tool, LimeRa1n features a one click jailbreaking method and supports the Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. Learn everything about LimeRa1n.
On Apple devices running iOS and iOS-based[a] operating systems, jailbreaking is the use of a privilege escalation exploit to remove software restrictions imposed by the manufacturer. Typically it is done through a series of kernel patches. A jailbroken device permits root access within the operating system and provides the right to install software unavailable through the App Store. Different devices and versions are exploited with a variety of tools. Apple views jailbreaking as a violation of the end-user license agreement and strongly cautions device owners not to try to achieve root access through the exploitation of vulnerabilities.
Since software programs available through APT and or Installer.app (legacy) are not required to adhere to App Store guidelines, many of them are not typical self-contained apps but instead are extensions and customization options for iOS and its features and other apps (commonly called tweaks). Users install these programs for purposes including personalization and customization of the interface by tweaks developed by developers and designers, adding desired features such as access to the root file system and fixing annoyances, and making development work on the device easier by providing access to the file system and command-line tools. Many Chinese iOS device owners also jailbreak their phones to install third-party Chinese character input systems because they are easier to use than Apple's.
A package manager or package-management system is a collection of software tools that automates the process of installing, upgrading, configuring, and removing computer programs. For jailbreaks, this is essential for the installation of third-party content. There are a few package managers specifically for jailbroken iOS devices, of which the most popular are Cydia, Sileo, Zebra and Installer 5.
Upon jailbreaking the device, a lot of the built-in security is lost due to the vast amount of kernel patches that go into building the tool. Security structures like Apple Mobile File Integrity, Sandbox, Read-Only Root File system, and trusted apps get disabled or otherwise tampered with, to achieve the goals of the jailbreaking tool. This, in turn, creates potential security issues for the jailbreak user.
When a jailbroken device is booting, it loads Apple's own initially. The device is then exploited and the kernel is patched every time it is turned on. An untethered jailbreak is a jailbreak that does not require any assistance when it reboots up. The kernel will be patched without the help of a computer or an application. These jailbreaks are uncommon and take a significant amount of reverse engineering to create. For this reason, untethered jailbreaks have become much less popular, and Fugu14 is currently the only jailbreak that supports recent iOS versions.
A tethered jailbreak is the opposite of an untethered jailbreak, in the sense that a computer is required to boot. Without a computer running the jailbreaking software, the iOS device will not be able to boot at all. While using a tethered jailbreak, the user will still be able to restart/kill the device's SpringBoard process without needing to reboot. Many early jailbreaks were offered initially as tethered jailbreaks.
This type of jailbreak is like a semi-tethered jailbreak in which when the device reboots, it no longer has a patched kernel, but the key difference is that the kernel can be patched without using a computer. The kernel is usually patched using an application installed on the device without patches. This type of jailbreak has become increasingly popular, with most recent jailbreaks classified as semi-untethered.
A few days after the original iPhone became available in July 2007, developers released the first jailbreaking tool for it, and soon a jailbreak-only game app became available. In October 2007, JailbreakMe 1.0 (also called "AppSnapp") allowed people to jailbreak iPhone OS 1.1.1 on both the iPhone and iPod Touch, and it included Installer.app as a way to get software for the jailbroken device.
The iPhone Dev Team, which is not affiliated with Apple, has released a series of free desktop-based jailbreaking tools. In July 2008 it released a version of PwnageTool to jailbreak the then new iPhone 3G on iPhone OS 2.0 as well as the iPod Touch, newly including Cydia as the primary third-party installer for jailbroken software. PwnageTool continues to be updated for untethered jailbreaks of newer iOS versions.
After Apple released iPhone OS 3.0 in June 2009, the Dev Team published redsn0w as a simple jailbreaking tool for Mac and Windows, and also updated PwnageTool primarily intended for expert users making custom firmware, and only for Mac. It continues to maintain redsn0w for jailbreaking most versions of iOS 4 and iOS 5 on most devices.
George Hotz developed the first iPhone unlock. In 2009, he released a jailbreaking tool for the iPhone 3GS on iPhone OS 3.0 called purplera1n, and blackra1n for iPhone OS version 3.1.2 on the 3rd generation iPod Touch and other devices.
Nicholas Allegra (better known as "comex") released a program called Spirit in May 2010. Spirit jailbreaks devices including iPhones running iPhone OS 3.1.2, 3.1.3, and iPad running iPhone OS 3.2. In August 2010, comex released JailbreakMe 2.0, the first web-based tool to jailbreak the iPhone 4 (on iOS 4.0.1).In July 2011, he released JailbreakMe 3.0, a web-based tool for jailbreaking all devices on certain versions of iOS 4.3, including the iPad 2 for the first time (on iOS 4.3.3). It used a flaw in PDF file rendering in mobile Safari. 2b1af7f3a8
