For anyone waiting for an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak, the wait would be longer. There is still no full functional jailbreak available at this time.
Many believe that what worked for iOS 9.3 would also work for iOS 9.31. This is because, from a security standpoint, nothing much has been changed with the latest iOS update. Apple also released it to fix a bug that causes universal links to go crazy, and send devices crashing whenever the links are tapped in Safari and other apps.
Apple security update page didn’t show further changes with iOS 9.3.1 as well. This means that there were no other vulnerabilities in iOS 9.3 that were patched, other than what was supposed to be fixed by the iOS 9.3.1 update. This is one of the reasons that some jailbreakers believe that the iOS 9.3 jailbreak would work on the iOS 9.3.1.
As it turns out, it has been a case of a possible iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak ever since Apple updated iOS 9.3.
But you’ve probably heard about Italian developer Luca Tedesco, and seen his video showing how he jailbroke iOS 9.3.1. Unfortunately, he can’t share his exploits, which makes his claims suspect and unreliable. If he did have the solution, he can sell it off and make lots of money. But it’s probably just a hoax, similar to the semi jailbreak method.
The partial jailbreak method claims to be an ideal substitute. It is compatible with both iOS 9.3 and iOS 9.3.1, reversible and risk free. Forget about risk-free, as semi jailbreak doesn’t add Cydia to your device, but V share and, most likely, malware.
Take it from Chinese jailbreak teams Pangu and TaiG. They don’t provide updates prior to releasing jailbreak software. And unless the jailbreak file comes from their official websites, steer clear of it.
So here are the facts:
- There is no iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak available. Everything else is fake or a scam.
- Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.2.1. You can no longer downgrade from iOS 9.3/iOS 9.3.1.
- Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.3 firmware. You can no longer downgrade from iOS 9.3, where jailbreak is available.
- Apple has released a beta version of the iOS 9.3.2. Since you can no longer downgrade, you might want to upgrade. This is available for download for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
If you have yet to upgrade to iOS 9.3.1, think twice. This is especially true if you want to have access to apps and features that aren’t normally available on a non-jailbroken Apple device.
