Semi-Tethered iOS 9.3 Jailbreak
This is a semi-tethered iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, which is different than what you are used to on iOS 9.1 or on older jailbreaks.
The good news is that unlike a tethered jailbreak you don’t need a computer if your iPhone or iPad reboots.
You need a computer to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 and then if your iPhone reboots you will need to run the iOS 9.3 jailbreak app from Pangu to restore the jailbroken state, but that can be run on your phone.
iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak
There is no news of a iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak at this time. Apple announced the iOS 9.3.4 update as it rolled out on August 4th.
The update includes security fixes that closes the jailbreak. You should not upgrade to iOS 9.3.4 if you want to jailbreak.
If you’ve been waiting to upgrade from an older jailbreak the iOS 9.3.3 update is still being signed for a short time.

One of the most popular jailbreak tweaks of all time is Activator, and it’s easy to see why. Activator allows you to set up automations as well as shortcuts for all sorts of different actions, like automatically turning on your alarms for the next day and even changing songs using the volume buttons.
This is especially true now that Activator works on iOS 9.3.3, so you can combine it with everything that Appl has added to iOS 9 and iOS 9.3.3.
One of the best features of Android is the app drawer, where all of your installed apps appear when you bring it up. Something like this is awesome, since you don’t have to have all of your apps on the home screen, and now the feature is on iOS through Cydia thanks to AppDrawer.
Do you use a web browser on your iPhone other than Safari? Then it might be nice to actually change iOS’s default browser to your preferred one using Browser Changer. This means that any links from other apps will now open in the web browser of your choice and not just default to Safari.
iOS 9 comes with the new San Francisco font, but if you’re not a huge fan of it, you can use Bytafont 3 to change the font to whatever you want. The possibilities are endless here.
Not a big fan of the Recently Deleted folder in the Photos app? While there isn’t an iOS 9 Cydia tweak to get rid of the folder, you can at least bypass it altogether when deleting a photo.
DeleteForever will allow you to permanently delete photos with one swoop, rather than deleting a photo and then having to delete it again from the Recently Deleted folder.
