iOS 9.1 has been jailbroken, but the jailbreak tool isn’t available for public use and the hackers who are behind it have been rewarded with $1 million, which was the bounty offered by Zerodium, a cybersecurity firm. Meanwhile, Apple has released the fourth beta of iOS 9.2 and the hackers are searching for exploits in the upcoming version, in order to jailbreak it.
If you’ll jailbreak your iOS device, you’ll gain full control over your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, being able to personalize the device the way you want, by installing tweaks and themes, some features are not supported by iOS, which is closed-source, and by jailbreaking it, the users are able to install Cydia tweaks and other applications that you dreamed of.
The PanGu team of hackers has found many exploits and iOS 9 – 9.0.2 and Apple has patched all of them in iOS 9.1, so since the iOS 9.1 jailbreak exploit is now owned by Zerodium, the company that has offered the bounty of $1 million to the hackers that have managed to offers a perfectly working browser-based, untethered jailbreak supporting both iOS 9.1 and the 9.2 beta, now we’re keeping an eye on the PanGu. The team of hackers is currently developing an iOS 9.2 jailbreak, which will be released after the public iOS 9.2 release will take place. Four weeks ago, Apple has released iOS 9.2 beta 4 and we’re pretty sure that it won’t take long until PanGu will come up with the latest 9.2 jailbreak.
TaiG is another team of hackers who is working on jailbreaking iOS 9.2, so we’ll see who wins the competition and brings the jailbreak tool first, none of the teams has come with an official confirmation about their efforts to jailbreak iOS 9.2, but soon wnough we’ll find out if the rumors are true.
