Step Nine
You'll now be asked to enter your Apple ID login credentials. PP/Pangu claims that this information is not saved; however, we strongly warn against doing this with an Apple ID that has any personal information attached to it. While having a jailbreak is great, potentially compromising your security is not worth it.

We suggest creating a new Apple ID without any personal information attached. You can do so here.

The PP Pangu jailbreak app will now download to your device.

Same here: iPad Pro 12.9, iOS 9.3.3 Cydia will not load on device; I have an iPhone 6 plus with Pangu 9.3.3 no problems. There is definitely an issue with iPad pro ; unfortunately Team Pangu is not acknowledging the issue publicly .....
