Apple Users May Be Waiting A Good Spell For iOS 9.3.1 Jailbreaking Tool
People who are waiting on iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak may be in for a long wait. There’s been no word on when a completely working jailbreak tool will be made public. Many people are under the impression that the jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.3 could work for iOS 9.3.1 because there’s not much difference to the two.
Apple released 9.3.1 to repair a bug that resulted in universal links to mess up and cause devices to crash when links were opened in various apps like Safari. The company’s security update page had no additional changes to the 9.3.1 version either, meaning no vulnerabilities reported in 9.3 had been patched. It’s why a number of jailbreakers feel an iOS 9.3 jailbreak is usable with iOS 9.3.1.
Well, it’s not far from wrong.
Luca Tedesco is an Italian developer, who posted a video that showed him breaking the iOS 9.3.1. However, Tedesco isn’t sharing how he did it, which many feel makes him unreliable. If there was a solution, surely he’d sell it to make a good deal of cash. Perhaps his claim of breaking the 9.3.1 version is a hoax.
There’s also been the partial jailbreak method, which claims it can be used on both iOS 9.3 and 9.3.1 without any risk to the user. A semi-jailbreak won’t add Cydia to the device and it can lead to malware… despite the claims.
Neither TaiG nor Pangu have offered up a jailbreaking software for 9.3.1, and until then, any other jailbreaking tools need to be avoided.
Here’s What Users Need To Remember
- No iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak tool has bene made.
- Apple doesn’t offer 9.2.1 iOS, which makes downgrading from 9.3 and 9.3.1 iOS impossible.
- Apple no longer has iOS 9.3 firmware, so downgrading from it is not possible.
- Apple has a BETA version for 9.3.2. If users cannot downgrade, they could consider upgrading. It’s offered for the iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone.
If a person has not upgraded to iOS 9.3.1, they should consider if it’s worth it. A jailbroken Apple device allows them to an array of apps and features not seen on devices that haven’t been jailbroken.
