Apple has released iOS 9.2.1 two weeks ago and in parallel, the company is preparing for the launch of iOS 9.3, which is being tested out by the developers. But, the jailbreak fans haven’t seen a jailbreak tool since version 9.0.2, because Apple has patched all vulnerabilities used by Pangu and TaiG, making almost impossible the crack of the iOS 9.1, 9.2 and 9.2.1, so, what’s the jailbreak status of these iOS updates?
If you want to remain jailbroken, you shouldn’t upgrade your iPhone/iPad to iOS 9.1, 9.2 or 9.2.1 because Apple has patched exploits used by Pangu 9 and even if you’ve upgraded to the 9.1 version, for a limited period it was possible to downgrade back to iOS 9.0.2, while Apple has kept the signing window open.
After releasing iOS 9.1, Apple has confirmed in a document that they’ve patched two vulnerabilities that have been used by the Pangu team, a bit later, it was announced that a JailbreakMe-like jailbreak exists for 9.1 and 9.2 versions, but the public will never have it. Pretty disappointing!
Then, rumors about Pangu’s efforts to jailbreak iOS 9.2 have rekindled hope, but after Apple has released the 9.2.1 beta to developers and public beta testers, things became complicated again. Again, confusing rumors claimed that the TaiG team had a jailbreak supporting iOS 9.2 and 9.1, and 3K Assistant has posted an announcement which was removed in short time and we’ve never heard anything about this again.
Then, a new name appeared: Luca Tedesco, which is an Italian developer who bragged about his performance to jailbreak 9.2.1 on his iPhone 6. Unfortunately, he didn’t say that the jailbreak will be available to the public. Later, after Apple has released the 9.3 Beta 1 version, the same developer has returned with the proof that he jailbroke this version too, and he posted a video on YouTube to show his followers that he’s not lying. He was the only person who tricked the system, but he doesn’t plan to release the untethered jailbreak of iOS 9.2, 9.2.1 and 9.3 beta, but at least we know that there are plenty exploits in the latest iOS updates that can be used for this project.
