Soon after the Chinese iOS code developer community, Pangu, released the jailbreaking firmware to the Apple devices, some early adopters began complaining that their devices were getting stuck during jailbreaking procedure exactly at 65%.

The Apple's devices displayed- 'Error occurred in preparing the environment, err code (51)'.

There was no official word from Pangu Team on when a fix would arrive. And just when everybody began to lose hope, the good folks at Redmond Pie have come up with a workaround, which is capable of sorting out the glitch in the jailbreaking process.

Here's how to fix - 'Error occurred in preparing the environment, err code (51)':

Disclaimer: This procedure is very technical and should be performed by a person with sound knowledge of rooting (or manual software installation) Android devices.

  • Make sure devices' data have been backed up individually in iCloud/iTunes or locally on PCs.

[Note: Never backup full on iTunes or iCloud because it will not be able to roll back to iOS 9.0.2. Backups created with newer versions of iOS cannot be used to restore on earlier version, reported Redmond Pie]

  • If your device is running iOS 9.1 beta version then remove [by going to Settings >> General >> Profile, then remove beta profile]

Now, let's get down fixing the glitch

Step 1: Reset the whole settings.

Step 3: Once clean installing of iOS 9.0.2 is done on the Apple device, install the latest (v1.0.1) Pangu tool
