If you are a long time jailbreaker then you know that things can get messy when a jailbreak throws an unexpected error at you and don’t know how to proceed. Well recently this was the case for most iDevice users who wanted to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 using Pangu, they were greeted with a “Pangu Is No Longer Available” message. If you are one of those guys who have no knowledge and use a step by step guide on how to jailbreak this can put you into the zone.
Considering the untethered nature of this jailbreak this happens when you reboot and want to reestablish jailbreak using the latest Pangu Jailbreak. The confusion gets installed when you dismiss the message and your Home screen shows and you don’t know whether you are jailbroken or not. Well the answer is simple, No. The culprit is an expiring certificate which was used to sign the English version of Pangu app with Cydia Impactor.
So don’t get alarmed because you can fix this problem two ways. The first one we are gonna resign the Pangu app then we are gonna sideload it on your device. The details and step by step fix can be found in the […] post.
The second fix is quite simple because you don’t need to download jailbreak or a computer to sign or sideload the certificate every time it expires. I know this is a little bit strange but maybe the following steps will shed some light on this matter.
Step 1. With the device powered on launch Settings app then make your way to General > Date & Time and look for Set Automatically and turn it off
Step 2. Now manually set the date for your device before the expiring date of your certificate.
Step 3. Now go to Springboard/Home screen and run Pangu app to jailbreak your device.
Step 4. Wait for the process to finish then go to Settings app again and head to General > Date & Time and toggle back on the Set Automatically function.
The sad part to this procedure is that it must be done every time a device with an expired certificate is rebooted.
So as you can see depending on how you want it you will have two ways to fix this annoying problem. If you are having problems or don’t know how to re jailbreak check out this article […] where we show you how to do it with an easy step by step guide. I highly recommend not skipping any of these steps because you may end up damaging your device.
