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. iOS 9.3.5 was jailbroken over a year later after the official Apple release. 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Now when we are waiting for iOS 13, it obvious that version 9.3.5 is really out-of-date.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.
