How to Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 Using English Version with Pangu Jailbreak And Cydia Impactor

Step #1. First up, you need to head over Pangu Downloads page. Then, you have to download the Pangu jailbreak .iPA file and Cydia Impactor tool for Windows, Mac or Linux (32 bit | 64 bit).

Step #4. If you see an Apple Developer warning, make sure to click on Ok.

Step #5. If prompted, you have to enter your Apple ID that will be used to create a free Apple developer certificate for signing the .iPA file of Pangu jailbreak. (I would recommend you to create a dummy Apple ID and use it instead.) Once you have entered your Apple ID password, you need to click on OK.

Step #6. Now, Cydia Impactor will begin to install the Pangu jailbreak app on your device. If you receive a keychain message during the process, make sure to click on the Allow button.

Step #10. Return to the Home screen and open the Pangu app. A notifications popup will appear.  You need to accept it by tapping on the Ok button.

Then, tap on the Start button and lock your device.

Jailbreak process will begin. Once it’s done, your iPhone will respring. Make sure to keep the device locked until it has been rebooted.

Once the process gets completed successful, you will see Cydia on the screen.

Now, go ahead and use all the compatible Cydia tweaks on your device. Check out these best Cydia sources as well to get the best out it.

How to Downgrade iPhone/iPad Apps [App Admin Cydia Tweak]

Currently, there is no option available in App Store to select the version of app your wish to download. By default, the App Store will download the latest available version of any app you are downloading.

There is is Cydia tweak which will help you downgrade or install an earlier version of any app available on App Store. The tweak is called App Admin A.K.A App control developed by UnlimApps.

How to Downgrade iPhone or iPad Apps

The downgrading process is definitely not simple, but at least it is possible. It is not that geeky as well, so you’ll be fine by following the steps. Just refer to the tutorial given below for further details.

How to Downgrade (Download Older Version of) iPhone/iPad Apps

Step #1. Open Cydia from the home screen.

Step #2. Tap on Sources followed by Edit on top-right of the screen.

Step #3. Now tap on Add and enter this URL: http://beta.unlimapps.com/

Step #4. After adding the repo, search for App control, download and install it. This will require a respring.

Step #5. Now head to App Store and select the application you wish to downgrade from “Updates” tab.

(As per our experience, currently the tweak only supports downgrading apps that are already installed and are under “Updates” tab)

Step #6. Tap on the Update button and you will get a pop-up with two options: Continue and Downgrade.

Tap on Update in App Store on iPhone

Step #7. Tap on “Downgrade” and App Control will suggest several known version of the app.

Simply select the version you wish to install. If that’s not enough or in case you aren’t satisfied with suggestions, I am afraid you will have to exercise a little more. Check the guide below to install the version of your choice.

Downgrading iPhone/iPad with softwareVersionExternalIdentifier

Step #1. Download and install iFile from Cydia.

Step #2. Launch iFile from home screen and go to /User/Containers/Bundle/Application/* and open the app’s iTunesMetadata.plist

Step #3. Here is the tough part, find the version number from the file and copy it.

Step #4. Head back to App Store where you have the pop-up. Paste the version you copied from iFile.

This certainly isn’t an easy way, but it is the only way to downgrade iOS apps. Of course, UnlimApps team is working to make it more user-friendly, as the app is currently in beta version. We can soon have an advanced and easier way to downgrade apps.

Cydia Tweaks Don’t Show Up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad? Here’s a Solution

After the news of iOS 9 untethered Jailbreak, users simply rushed to download the Pangu tool to Jailbreak their devices. But most of them were stuck after Jailbreaking, because few of the most demanding tweaks were yet to be updated to work with iOS 9. Basic tweaks like WinterBoard and PreferenceLoader were not compatible to work with iOS 9.

Many iOS 9 users would have already Jailbroken their devices and tried installing different tweaks, from the list we have already provided. If you aren’t able to Jailbreak your iOS 9 because of any error, you can also check our post on common iOS 9 Jailbreak problems.

Cydia Tweaks Don't Show Up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad

PreferenceLoader is one of the most essential tweak, because it lets you customize your installed tweaks under Settings app. PreferenceLoader was not compatible with iOS 9, and thus, all your installed tweaks were almost useless, because you cannot customize any of your tweaks.

However, if you are not seeing any tweak in the Settings app, obviously, it is because your PreferenceLoader needs to be updated to latest 2.2.3-1 version.

How to Fix Cydia Tweaks Don’t Show up in Settings App on iPhone and iPad

First and foremost thing you need to do is check whether the PreferenceLoader is installed in Cydia or not. Most of the times when you don’t find Cydia tweaks in setting, PreferenceLoader needs to be re-installed. So here’s how you can do that:

  • Open Cydia on your iPhone/iPad.
  • Search for PreferenceLoader.

Search for PrefenceLoader Cydia Tweak

  • Tap on Modify from top left corner (you will see Install button if you are trying it very first time.)

Tap on Modify PreferenceLoader Cydia Tweak

  • Tap on Reinstall from the Popup Menu (In case you are trying for first time, tap on install.)

Reinstall PreferenceLoader Cydia Tweak on iPhone

  • Right after that, your device will reboot thereafter launch the settings app to see the effect.

Most probably, this should solve the issue of Cydia tweaks not showing in Settings. If you are still unable to see the tweaks, then there might be problem with the Cydia installation itself. Or in some cases, you need to identify the particular tweaks which are not working and try to update them to fix the problems.

Re-jailbreaking your iPhone/iPad is the last option that will surely show the tweaks in settings once the process is completed. We hope that this solves your Cydia tweaks don’t show up in settings issue. Stay tuned on iCydiaOS blog for more such guides.
