Unable to complete to 100%

If you have encrypted your backup using iTunes, you might be getting error like this: “Error at 45% – Error occurred in preparing the environment, error code (0A)”.

You will need to disable Encrypted backup option from iTunes. To do it, open iTunes on your PC, click your device → Summary, under Backups uncheck the box “Encrypt (device) backup” option. And then take an unencrypted backup of your device. This solution has proved to resolve the issue for many users.

Use iTunes instead of OTA updates

If you are getting some other issues apart from what we discussed, then this might be because you might have updated your iOS 9.0.2 via OTA updates. Try restoring your device from iTunes, this should solve the issue.

Double check your iOS version

If you were too excited to jailbreak your device, and forgot whether it is compatible with your iOS 9, then it’s time to check now. To make sure, you should be running iOS 9 and not iOS 9.1 Public beta version. As the Pangu tool is designed specifically for iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2.

Unable to start process because of grey button

In case you have already connected your device, but the Start button in Pangu tool is still grey; then connect your device with iTunes once. Then close iTunes and check on Pangu tool if you can now click the Start button.

Unable to locate Cydia app

If you have completed Jailbreaking process without any error, but unable to see the Cydia app on your screen, then open Photos app, and then run the Pangu app and wait.

Error: /usr/libexc/Cydia/cydo error (2) error

The only possible fix for this error is to restore your device completely and re-jailbreak it.
