Everybody is expecting that the new jailbreak tool would come a bit late due to some new safety measure taken by the Apple in order to secure the iOS kernel. But iOS 9.1 Pangu jailbreak out of no where showing that it actually bypass all those things to jailbreak iOS 9.1 devices.
The official changelog for Pangu v1.3.0 (for Windows) and Pangu v1.1.0 (for Mac) is provided as under:

Pangu9 V1.3.0 used a kernel bug from Lokihardt to exploit iOS 9.1, and the bug is patched in iOS 9.2. Thanks Lokihardt for helping!
One thing is important to keep in mind that iOS 9.1 is no longer signed by Apple which implies that there is no chance to downgrade after updating to iOS 9.2.
The current jailbreak version of Pangu is available for both Windows and Mac. The Pangu team give following details on their website:
1. Preparations for jailbreak.
Please backup your device before using Pangu. Although we have successfully tested Pangu with a number of devices, we strongly suggest you backup your data via iTunes before jailbreak.
In order to increase the success rate, please switch your device to airplane mode, and disable passcode and “find my iPhone” functions in system setting.
2. Unable to jailbreak devices that are upgraded via OTA
The firmware upgraded via OTA affects Pangu a lot and usually causes Pangu to fail. If you have failed many times, please try to download the latest firmware and restore your iOS devices.
In addition, Pangu itself now provides a functionality to easily restore iOS devices and automatically complete the activation and jailbreak, through a simple one-click.
3. the warning of “Disk is almost full”.
This is because during the jailbreaking process, Pangu will write some important files into the system partition and lead to this warning. However, it will not affect your device. If Cydia is installed, it will re-adjust the system files on its first launch and then the warning would disappear.
4. Suggestions after several failed attempts
1. Please switch to the airplane mode, try again.
2. Please reboot both your iOS devices as well as your computer, and try again.
3. Please use the restore functionality in Pangu to restore your device, and try again.
