Pangu9 is the name for a series of jailbreaks for all devices on iOS 9.0 through 9.1 (untethered), 9.2 through 9.3.3 on 64-bit devices (semi-untethered) and Apple TV HD running tvOS 9.0 - 9.0.1 (untethered).

The initial version was released on 14 October 2015 and supported iOS 9.0 through 9.0.2, untethered. On 11 March 2016, Pangu9 1.3.0 (Windows)/1.1.0 (Mac) was released to jailbreak iOS 9.1 untethered on 64-bit devices.

On 23 March 2016 Pangu released an untethered jailbreak for tvOS 9.0 through 9.0.1.

On 24 July 2016, a new version which jailbreaks semi-untethered iOS 9.2 through 9.3.3 was released on Pangu's Chinese site. An English version was released on Pangu's English site a few days later on 29 July 2016.

On 19 August 2016, an on-device jailbreak was released.

"Pangu" is the name of the "the first living being and the creator of all in some versions of Chinese mythology".

The 9.0-9.1 untether is nicknamed "Fuxi Qin". This continues the tradition of Chinese mythology from the previous jailbreaks (Pangu Axe, XuanYuan Sword), by referring to the instrument (琴) carried by the legendary emperor Fuxi (伏羲).

Similarly, the 9.2-9.3.3 untether is nicknamed "Nüwa Stone" (seen in the file name, where v is used instead of ü), referring to the stones that Nüwa used to patch the sky.
