When 3K Assistant, TaiG’s jailbreak partner, has stated that iOS 9.2 has been jailbroken, the fans were extremely excited about the breakthrough, but shortly after the announcement has been posted, 3K removed it and replaced it with the following message: “iOS 9.2 Jailbreak is in progress and coming soon”. Since then, we had no news regarding the jailbreak status of iOS 9.2, but we were surprised when we heard that an Italian developer has posted screenshots of his iPhone 6 running a jailbreak application from the Cydia store. Luca Todesco, also known on as @qwertyoruiop, is the developer that managed to jailbreak iOS 9.2.1 beta.
Early rumors said that it’s impossible to jailbreak the new iOS updates, as Pangu was the only group of hackers who released the iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak and Apple declared war on hackers and started patching all the exploits used by TaiG and Pangu, making it impossible to jailbreak iOS 9.1 and 9.2. Even Todesco admitted that the users should not upgrade their devices if they have their iPhones jailbroken on an early version of iOS 9.
This means that the Italian developer doesn’t intend to share his jailbreak tool for iOS 9.2.1 with the public. Most likely, he made a deal with Apple and the company will patch the exploits found by him and will release the final version of iOS 9.2.1 with zero vulnerabilities.
This caused reasons for concern, but at the same time, there are many people who don’t believe that Todesco has successfully jailbroken the beta version of iOS 9.2.1, even if he posted a screenshot of the kernel code running on the latest update.
For now, nobody knows if Pangu or TaiG will come with an untethered tool for iOS 9.2.1, as they failed to provide a tool for iOS 9.1 or later.
