PPhelper was a very welcome jailbreak when it was released for iOS 9.3.3, despite the fact that it wasn’t the best. Now Cydia alternatives like Panda Helper has been released as Cydia alternative for iOS 9.3.5. Subsequent iOS updates tidied it up and, although it was patched in iOS 9.3.4, a further update gave it unofficial support in iOS 9.3.5. It is still a semi-untethered jailbreak and it still only supports 64-bit devices but if you want to download it, here’s how along with another jailbreak called Home Depot Jailbreak and Phoenix Jailbreak, released for iOS devices. Links and tutorials below.

Method 3: Home Depot Jailbreak
Home Depot is the latest jailbreak to be released for iOS 9.3.x and it is designed for iOS devices only, filling in the gap that PPHelper left. However, it is a semi-untethered jailbreak so be prepared to re-jailbreak every time you reboot and it can only be installed through Cydia Impactor. Check out the linked article for a full step-by-step guide on how to download Home Depot Jailbreak.
Method 4: Phoenix Jailbreak
Phoenix jailbreak has just been released for all users who stayed on iOS 9.3.5 and who have a 32-bit device. Many users didn’t bother to update to iOS 10 simply because the jailbreaks released didn’t work on their iOS devices and some of the older devices are not able to run iOS 10 properly anyway. Phoenix Jailbreak has provided them with a lifeline, a jailbreak they can at last use.
It is semi-untethered and you will need a Mac or Windows computer and Cydia Impactor to install it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You will also need your Apple ID to hand. Full details, including a full guide on how to download Phoenix jailbreak can be found in the linked article.
