The first jailbreak for iOS 9 has now appeared after four months since its first released.

Team Pangu, a group of Chinese hackers famous for relinquishing iPhones from Apple control, has released a Windows software package allowing for an untethered jailbreak for iPhones running iOS 9.0-9.0.2, according to The Verge. It also indicate the untethered jailbreak is stable and working on the latest iPhone, the 6S.

Jailbroken iOS 9 covers the iPhone 4s, 5/5c/5s, 6/6 Plus, and 6s/6s Plus as well as the iPad 2, 3 and 4, iPad Air/Air 2, iPad mini, iPad mini 2/3/4, and the 5th and 6th generations of the iPod touch. In other words, an extensive list of both current and older devices.

For those Apple users who want to try it, Redditors are offering a how-to guide and help and put together a little Wiki page to help anyone wanting to open up their iPhone. The page should be getting updates as there’s more awareness of Pangu’s exploits.

Before doing the process, users are advised to backup all their important files to the Apple iCloud first before starting the jailbreak process, Forbes reported. They should also disable the Find My Phone, Passcode and Touch ID in settings and switch on Airplane mode.

After jailbreaking, users will be able to install Cydia, a framework that allows them to download and install unofficial packages onto their device letting them to run apps or make changes the iOS operating system would otherwise prevent.

However, though devices can be jailbroken and Cydia can be installed, many of the apps and tweaks are not yet ready. There are a string of bugs around the PreferenceLoader function. It also violates the End User License Agreement (voiding warranty and users would not be able to get help from Apple when things go wrong). It also exposes your phone to security vulnerabilities and puts personal data at risk, including iOS malware targeted users with jailbroken devices.
