Cydia Impactor – iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak for Mac and PC

Most jailbreakers know that Cydia Impactor is a vital tool that is used for deleting a jailbreak and remove Cydia. Saurik has renamed the tool as Cydia Eraser now and has updated it to support iOS 9.3.3 and the PPHelper jailbreak. While Cydia Eraser now does what Cydia Impactor used to do, the latter is now a brand new tool created by Saurik to assist with the installation of PPHelper Jailbreak.

PPHelper jailbreak has been update with support for the Mac and Linux and is now available in English. However, the process for downloading and installing it has changed – no longer do you need to use a computer to do this but you do need to use Cydia Impactor [links below]. Do keep in mind that the updated version of PPHelper is still a semi-untethered tool; that has not changed. You will need your Apple ID to hand because it is needed for a certificate to be installed – if you don’t do this you can’t jailbreak your device. There are two types of Apple ID – a regular one, which will require the certificate to be reinstalled every 7 days and a Developer ID which means the certificate will be valid for 1 year. You will not need to install your tweaks every time you re-do the certificate though; these will remain untouched.

Supported Devices :

  • iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE
  • iPad Air, Air 2

  4. An Apple ID warning will appear – click on OK cydia impactor jailbreak2_install
  5. Input your Apple ID and password and click on OK . You can set up a dummy account for this if you want although both Saurik and Pangu have told us this is perfectly safe cydia impactor jailbreak3_installcydia impactor jailbreak0_install
  6. Cydia Impactor will now get to work on preparing and signing the IPA file. Provided everything goes as expected, Pangu app will be downloaded and installed onto your device – don’t run it at the moment pangu_icon_cydia_impactor

  8. Locate the Apple ID profile and tap it and then tap on Trust
  9. Come out of Settings and open Pangu – it will be on your home screen

      1. I had this same problem did you get cydia and other jailbroken apps to show if so how did you do it

  4. Hi Guys!

    since none of the cydia tweak is working on my iphone 6.
    and even the phone is laggier than ever before.
    sorry for my bad english bdw!

  5. Hola, el iPhone 5 no sale en la lista de dispositivos compatibles.
    Entiendo q no lo puedo hacer en mi teléfono, verdad?.

  6. Just wondering why do you guys need our Apple ID and password. Starting to wonder if the Chinese develope these jailbreaks to be able to spy on people that install it, I’ve got nothing interesting in my life anyone would benefit from so I jailbreak away:) anyways not happy that it requires info like Apple ID and password seems a bit sketchy but what do I know. Okay well thanks for the jailbreak

  7. Not to happy I’m being asked to enter in a Apple ID a and password
    Starting to wonder if the Chinese use these jailbreaks to spy on anyone using there method to jailbreak, I don’t really care I’m not to interesting nor have anything that would benefit them in anyway so I’ll jailbreak away:) thanks for the jailbreak even if the real purpose for release is for nafarious purposes lol

  8. I have tried to follow your jailbreak instructions over the past two weeks. In every case, I was unable to make the jailbreak happen.

    Reluctantly, I have given up on the Pangu method(s), since the prospect of repeating a successful jailbreak every 7 days, is alarming and since I can’t even get the first jaibreak done.

    Please consider re-writing your method(s) in unambiguous English, so that we can follow the method we select, with accuracy and with success.

  9. done everything as stated step for step above..numerous times now, and have gotten jailbreak succedded , BUT the CYDIA app is not there…can someone please hekp me with this

  10. I have a problem… I tried to unjailbreak using Cydia eraser and it showed an error… When I restarted my device the was no Cydia and no tweaks in setting but it still says I am jailbroken please help
