After Apple so cruelly killed the iOS 9 jailbreak, iOS 9 users were left with no option but to stay on their current firmware and wait for the next jailbreak. All of us were expecting an jailbreak iOS 9.2.1, as it is the latest public iOS release at that time. But what if we told you that iOS 9.2.1 has been jailbroken ? Update : Pangu Team has surprised us once again by releasing the iOS 9.1 jailbreak on 11th Mar 2016 which is now an old firmware and already stopped from being signed. Instead of releasing iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak or even iOS 9.3 , they decided to release iOS 9.1 jailbreak which is bizarre
Can I jailbreak iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.1 on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch? Here we look at the state of the jailbreak with Apple having now released iOS 9.1 / 9.2 / 9.2.1 final versions to the public.
After seeding a number of development betas to registered developers and public testers, iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 are all here, but where does that leave those individuals who choose to have a liberated iOS device?
The introduction of a jailbreak solution with Pangu 9 for iOS 9.0, 9.0.1, and 9.0.2 took many by surprise. It was, of course, a very welcome surprise for those who were yearning for an untethered jailbreak on Apple’s latest mobile OS, but it still managed to blindside a lot of individuals. Of course, Pangu 9 release also meant that any vulnerabilities used to exploit iOS 9.0.x essentially enter the public domain, leaving Apple to tear the jailbreak apart and patch any of those holes. It’s widely accepted that the security loopholes used in the latest Pangu jailbreak were patched by Apple in beta 4 of iOS 9.1.
It’s for that reason that it’s vitally important to not go through the process of upgrading to iOS 9.1, 9.2 or 9.2.1 if you wish to remain jailbroken. We already have the confirmation now that Pangu 9 jailbreak exploits have been patched by Apple. That makes iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.2.1 a danger zone for anyone who is currently enjoying all of the spoils that being jailbroken offers.
If you’ve accidentally gone through the process of upgrading to iOS 9.1 without thinking of the consequences, then it’s definitely advised to downgrade back to iOS 9.0.2 while the signing window is still open on Apple’s side. The same can be said if you’re on an earlier version of iOS and haven’t yet updated to iOS 9.0.2. The signing window won’t last for long though so you better hurry up if you want to update or downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 while it’s still possible. You can find the instructions for it here: Downgrade iOS 9.1 To iOS 9.0.2, Here’s How [Tutorial]. – Singing window is closed now. Read Update x2 at the bottom.
It seems that the age old game of jailbreak cat and mouse between Apple and the teams involved in serving up jailbreak solutions is about to begin once again.
The bottom line is that there’s currently no public jailbreak solution available for iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.2.1. As previously mentioned, jailbreak vulnerabilities used for the iOS 9.0 – 9.0.2 jailbreak have been patched in iOS 9.1, 9.2 and 9.2.1. Until there is a new jailbreak solution available, stay away from the latest version of iOS if you’re a jailbreaker.
