iOS 9.3.5 was jailbroken over a year later after the official Apple release. Phoenix Jailbreak is the first semi-untethered jailbreak for all 32-bit devices on iOS 9.3.5 / 3.3.6 developed by Siguza and tihmstar. Install Phoenix without a computer or download and sideload IPA file to your iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
What is Phoenix Jailbreak?
Phoenix Jailbreak is a free tool to jailbreak all older devices running iOS 9.3.5 / 9.3.6 including iPad 2/3, iPad mini, iPhone 4s, iPod 5g: A5, iPad 4, and iPhone 5/5c: A6. After jailbreak, Phoenix will install Cydia app on iOS from where you can install apps, tweaks, libraries, etc. from different Cydia Repositories.
Now when we are waiting for iOS 13, it obvious that version 9.3.5 is really out-of-date. Apple doesn't support your device anymore and the best option to refresh your device is to install some apps and tweaks created by the jailbreak community. Phoenix will allow you to access those apps.
The jailbreak tool is really easy to use and it automatically detects if your device and iOS version is supported. Just remember, that after each restart of your iPhone, iPad or iPod device you will need to re-jailbreak iOS 9.3.5 / 9.3.6 using Phoenix app. It shouldn't happen because the jailbreak works stable.
How to jailbreak iOS 9.3.5 - 9.3.6 with Phoenix
AltStore can activate max 3 apps on your iPhone using the free certificate. Every 7 days after installing Phoenix Jailbreak, you need to resign the app and send it to the AltServer (running on PC or Mac), which installs the resigned tool back to your device using iTunes WiFi sync (works also using a USB cable).
Step 1. Download AltStore and install the app on your PC or Mac.
Or use any other Cydia Impactor alternative for Windows or macOS.
Step 2. Open Safari and download Phoenix.IPA (24 MB).
Step 3. Lunch AltStore and navigate to "My Apps" section.
Step 4. Tap on the + button available form the left-right corner.
Step 5. Select downloaded Phoenix Jailbreak IPA file to install.
Step 6. AltStore will start installing Phoenix Jailbreak for iOS.
Step 7. The Phoenix Jailbreak app will be available from your home screen.
To prevent apps from expiring, AltStore can refresh apps in the background when using the same WiFi network as AltServer. The installed Phoenix Jailbreak will be not revoked in the least expected moment thanks to manual installation using your free Apple certificate. Remember that your PC must be on to sing IPAs.
