Those who own iOS devices will be delighted to know that iOS 9.3.2 can indeed be jailbroken.
The latest proof comes from renowned hacker Luca Todesco, who has made a name for himself as one of the most skilful and reliable hackers in the iOS world. Over the years, Todesco has released several videos showing how he has jailbroken into various versioons of iOS, and he has even been officially credited by Apple for security fixes in both iOS and OS X.
Now, Todesco has shown everyone that jailbreaking into iOS 9.3.2 is possible. On May 27, he posted a YouTube link on Twitter and announced that it was a “9.3.2 jailbreakme demo”. Upon opening the video, users will see a sixth-generation iPod touch going through a browser-based jailbreaking process.
And that’s exactly what has many people interested and excited. Normal jailbreaking tools (like those from hacking teams Pangu and TaiG) require iOS devices to be attached to a PC or Mac computer. Through his YouTube video, Todesco showed that he has created a process that allows iPhones, iPods, and iPads to become jailbroken just by using a browser and an internet connection.
Those who have owned iOS devices for a long time and/or have been active in the jailbreaking community for years will know that this is similar to the process that was used by JailbreakMe, a series of jailbreaks for the early versions of iOS. JailbreakMe took advantage of a flaw in the Safari browser and allowed users to enjoy a simple, one-step jailbreaking process that didn’t require them to hook up their device to a desktop computer.
The last stable release of JailbreakMe was for iOS 4.3 and 4.3.3 and was released about four years ago on July 2011. Todesco’s latest video will surely make veteran iOS users feel nostalgic about the well-loved jailbreaking tool. It also shows everyone that browser-based jailbreaking is still possible.
However, don’t count on getting your hands on this browser-based tool right away. Just like all of the jailbreaking tools that Todesco has developed, the jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 won’t likely be made available to everyone. Todesco has emphasized that his tools are simply for private research and that he has no plans to release them to the public. Still, the fact that he was able to do it gives iOS users hope that Pangu, TaiG, and other reliable hacking teams will come up with an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreaking tool soon.
