Common Pangu iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak Problems and How to Fix Them

With every new firmware or jailbreak release, there always gotta be a few problems in the utility or caused by it. But this is not a big deal at all since most issues have their workaround.


I’m currently talking about the recent iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak released by the Pangu team. As always, it’s free to use, right now is only Windows-based but you can use an app called iPAStore to jailbreak it right on the device. After I’ve successfully jailbroken my iPhone, I ran into several issues.

After looking for help from the r/Jailbreak community, I’ve found some excellent solutions. I wanted to share them with you down below since these are common problems after Jailbreak.

Cydia Keeps Crashing

This is pretty much the first thing that happened to me. But my hype for installing new jailbreak tweaks doesn’t just die down, though. I immediately restore the device completely (not via a backup) and restore to one of your backups then re-jailbreak it.

It should work after this.

Stuck at Downloading in Pangu

Yeah I know, it sucks a lot seeing everyone else got their Jailbreak 9.3.3, and you’re still at the downloading process. Sometimes, this could be a problem because the utility is not working properly or it could mean that the stuff is still being downloaded.

Some people waited up to 20 mins until they could proceed to the next step. If your time isn’t anywhere close to that, keep waiting. Closing the software and re-launching, it seems to fix the issue just fine.

Location Services not Working

If you find your location services not working properly after jailbreaking your iOS 9.3.3 then use a tweak called libLocation. It’s available on the ModMyi free of charge.

Still, doesn’t work? Restart your iPhone or reset its network settings.

Default Repository Gone Missing

This is a weird problem since I’ve never seen it before until now, but hey, no big deal at all. The best fix to this is adding them manually. I’m sure you know some of these sources including ModMyi and BigBoss 🙂

What to do after 7 days?

What? What kind of question is this? Well, you may not know but depending on the method you’re using the iOS 9.3.3 may only last seven days.

I mean, if you used a regular Apple dev account then the codesign profile is for one week. However, you won’t lose your jailbreak forever. You can start resigning and reinstalling the PP Jailbreak.

Some Tweaks Doesn’t Work

May I remind that the new Jailbreak just dropped a few hours ago. The developers sometimes need to go over their tweaks and update them accordingly. You can check out this full-list of compatible iOS 9.3.3 tweaks.


Accidentally Deleted The PP App

If you have deleted the PP app by accident, don’t worry, because you can always reinstall it. On your computer, run the PP Helper and look for the PP app’s icon. The tool will start jailbreaking again and add the app back to your device.

Pokemon Go Doesn’t Work in iOS 9.3.3

I can guarantee that Pokemon Go will stop working once you jailbreak your iOS 9.3.3. Niantic, the dev of this game, implemented a jailbreak detection in it. Therefore, you will need a tweak like Masterball (check it here) to bypass the restriction. After that, Pokemon Go should be back to normal.

Failed in buffer_write

Some users see the failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1) error while installing their Cydia tweaks.

This is not normal but can be fixed using Coolstar’s Stashing package.

Add his repo:

Then, install Stashing for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3 tweak.

And that’s all for now. If you didn’t run into any problems, good for you. I’ll be updating this post as more common issues are being discovered.
