Jailbreak the iPad or iPhone on iOS 9.0.2 with PanGu

Since Kodi isn’t endorsed by Apple, you’ll need to Jailbreak your iPad or iPhone before you’ll be able to install XBMC. It’s perfectly safe and can be reversed by factory restoring the device, no sign of jailbreak. Some people would even say that your device will work better after you’ve jailbroken it, there’s so much more you can do.

Step 1: Backup your iPad or iPhone just as a precaution.
