              It has been often said that OTA updates do not work well with jailbreaks. So if you are thinking of jailbreaking iOS 9, then you should follow the manual IPSW installation method.

              1. Go to this link and download iOS 9 IPSW firmware file for your iPhone 4 model.
              2. Once downloaded, open iTunes and connect your iPhone to the computer.

              4. If on Windows, hold down the Shift key, or if on Mac, press down the Alt key and simultaneously click on Update in iTunes button
              5. Now point to the IPSW file that you downloaded and open it.
              6. iTunes will now update your device to iOS 9.

            3. OTA Update

              Latest iOS updates are available for OTA (over the air) download right when they are released. So in case you haven’t updated to iOS 9 yet, you can do so by going to Settings >> General >>Software Update. Now download the OTA update and it will be installed automatically.

              Please remember that iOS 9 is a major update, so the OTA update will use up a lot of your data. Hence, perform the OTA updates when on Wi-Fi or an unlimited mobile data connection.
