As soon as iOS 9.3.3 Pangu Jailbreak was off the block a few days back, I was over the moon. Really. I had been craving for iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak for months. However, what started off as a huge euphoria ended with massive disappointment.
Believe me, iOS 9.3.3 Pangu jailbreak is too problematic to run smoothly on my iPhone. Initially, I couldn’t jailbreak my iPhone despite giving numerous attempts. But when I finally succeeded in Jailbreaking the device, Cydia would crash 10 out of 10 times when launched.
Moreover, being a semi-tethered jailbreak, I had to jailbreak my iOS device every time it reboots. And even after the re-jailbreak, Cydia didn’t work at all. In the end, I decided to remove the jailbreak.
