There are many jailbreak fans out there, who are stuck with version iOS 9.0.2 – the last Jailbreak that Pangu 9 has released, because since then, Apple has patched all vulnerabilities, making impossible to crack the new iOS updates: 9.1, 9.2 and 9.2.1. The fans are still hoping for a miracle and to be given a free hand to upgrade to a newer iOS version, but for now, it’s recommendable to not do that if they want to remain jailbroken.
Apple has patched all Pangu 9 jailbreak exploits and now it’s dangerous to upgrade to iOS 9.2.1, because there’s still no jailbreak available and it’s no longer possible to downgrade from iOS 9.1 to 9.0.2.
It all started when Apple has released a document where they confirmed that two vulnerabilities found by the Pangu team have been patched. Then, it was discovered that there’s a browser-based untethered jailbreak for iOS 9.1 and 9.2, but the developer will never release it. In short time, one of Pangu’s partners, 3K Assistant, has posted an announcement saying that the team is working on the iOS 9.2 jailbreak and it will be available soon, but the announcement was taken down immediately.
Then, the iOS 9.2.1 beta was released to developers and public beta testers and another rumor appeared, saying that TaiG has managed to jailbreak iOS 9.2 and 9.1. But, the person who successfully jailbroke 9.2.1 was the Italian developer Luca Tedesco and he proved that by showing its iPhone 6 supporting the Cydia store. He was able to jailbreak even the first beta of iOS 9.3 and posted a video on YouTube to prove that, unfortunately, this guy was not interested in releasing a jailbreak tool for the public. He wanted only to show Apple that its software is not stable and contains vulnerabilities. This made Apple to stop signing iOS 9.2, so the users who upgraded to the 9.2.1 version will need to wait until iOS 9.3 will be officially released.
