Pangu has finally released the iOS 9.1 jailbreak, which means that you can now jailbreak your iPhone or iPad that runs on iOS 9.0 and 9.1 update, today we’re going to tell you a few things that you should know if you’re considering jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad device.
You Are Exposing Your Device To Hackers
First of all, when you jailbreak an iOS or when you root an Android device, you are exploiting the security holes in the operating system, we agree that the jailbreak unlocks a good amount of options, but at the same time, it leaves an open door for hackers and malware. Users who jailbreak their device will need to be very careful when installing applications from third party sources, as they could get a malware on their mobile devices, which would allow the hackers to steal personal data from them.
Pangu’s Jailbreak Works *Only* On iOS 9.0 and iOS 9.1
Many iOS owners have been waiting for this jailbreak for quite a while. Unfortunately, it was quite disappointing for them, as it supports only iOS 9.0 and 9.1, with other words, if you updated your device above iOS 9.1 you will not be able to downgrade back to iOS 9.1 in order to install the jailbreak. The reason why this jailbreak works only on iOS 9.0 and 9.1 is because the exploit that was used to gain admin access to the iOS was fixed by Appe on iOS 9.2.
Unfortunately, there are many users who updated their iPhones and iPads to iOS 9.2, which means that they will not be able to jailbreak their mobile devices.
Don’t Upgrade Your iPhone or iPad
If you’ve installed the jailbreak on an iPhone or iPad that runs on iOS 9.0 or 9.1, you will need to make sure that you don’t upgrade it to 9.2. In case you upgrade your mobile device to iOS 9.3, you will automatically “unjailbreak” your device and you will be stuck with iOS 9.2, in addition, as we’ve told you above, once you’ll upgrade your device to iOS 9.2 you will not be able to downgrade it back to 9.1.
