How to Use PPHelper

The latest jailbreak is called PPHelper and it was released jointly by PP Assistant and Pangu jailbreak teams. Don’t rush to download it though unless you have a 64 bit iOS device because it will not work on any of the existing 32 bit devices. Also, you need to know up front that it is a semi-untethered jailbreak and that means having to reactivate it every time you reboot your device. To make life easier for you though, a new tool has been released by Luca Todesco that will reactivate PPHelper automatically for you and you can find the instructions on how to use it at the given link. First though, let’s look at how to install PPHelper.
