Team Pangu—a group consisting of senior security researchers focusing on mobile security research—has finally rolled out an iOS 9 jailbreak for the iPhone, iPad and the iPod Touch.
Pangu 9, the tool which will be used for the jailbreak, works for iOS 9.0 to iOS 9.0.2, but it is only available for Windows users at the moment.
The team has yet to confirm, though, if the tool works with the beta releases. Also, no word yet from the team on the release of the jailbreak software for OS X.
Pangu 9 presently works with these devices: iPod touch, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4, iPad, iPad Air and iPad Air 2.
We are very excited to announce the release of Pangu 9, the first untethered jailbreak tool for iOS 9 (http://t.co/0ksOanTGRF).

Jailbreak Instruction For iPod Touch on iOS 9
To jailbreak an iPod Touch 5G or iPod Touch 6G, it is recommended that you upgrade your device to the latest firmware—iOS 9.0.2—using iTunes.
Step #1: Create a folder on your desktop and put in it the latest version of Pangu.
Step #2: Head over to Settings. Select Touch ID and Passcode. If the Passcode is activated, turn it off.
Step #3: Go back to the Settings menu. Select iCloud from the list. Make sure the Find My iPod switch is turned off.
Step #4: Go back to the Settings menu. Activate Airplane Mode.
Step #5: Make sure to carry out a manual backup before proceeding, as you may lose your data if the process doesn't complete successfully. With the use of a USB cable, connect your iPod touch to your computer. Launch iTunes and perform the backup procedure.
Step #6: Go to the folder on your desktop. Launch the Pangu software by double clicking it.
Step #7: After the software has detected the device, uncheck the PP checkbox. Start the jailbreak by pressing the Start Jailbreak button.
Step #8: When asked if you have already backed up your device and that it is already set in Airplane mode, press the Already Did button. It can be spotted on the right.
Step #9: The app will then start performing the jailbreak process. The device will then reboot. When the process reaches the 65 percent mark, you will be asked to enable the Airplane Mode. At 75 percent, launch the app, then press Accept. When prompted, you should tap OK, allowing the app to gain access to your photos.
Step #10: You will know the process has been completed once the device will reboot and a Cydia app will show up on your SpringBoard.
