More than two months ago, Apple killed the jailbreak for iOS 9.0.x. Released since updating to iOS 9.1, 9.2, and 9.2.1 still not compatible with Pangu utility. Every day users are asking questions about the timing of the release, so we’ve gathered together all currently available information about the jailbreak of iOS 9.
A little background. On 16 September, Apple released final version iOS 9, but because of the presence of critical bugs by the end of the month OS was updated to iOS versions 9.0.1 and 9.0.2. October 13, jailbreak released from Pangu hackers, compatible with all versions of iOS 9.
The break-in “nines” using the utility from Pangu was blocked by Apple on October 21 with the release of the update iOS 9.1. Thus, iOS 9.0.2 is the latest version firmware compatible with the jailbreak. Unfortunately, Apple stopped signing the software, so will roll back to previous versions of iOS is not possible.
It is known that at present two hacker group Pangu and TaiG are working on a jailbreak for the latest iOS public beta version 9.2.1. According to reports of the portal Weibo, modification utilities for hacking is almost complete, but the exact release date is unknown. Jailbreak for iOS 9.2 may withdraw at any time, so be patient and stay tuned.
Is it worth to upgrade to iOS 9.2?
It all depends on your preferences. If you are still using a jailbroken iOS 9.0.x, upgrading is not worth it. In Apple’s history there was no incident, when hackers wouldn’t crack the OS, and the emergence of information that Pangu already prepared a new instrument, says that he just released is only a matter of time. After the release of jailbreak can easily install iOS 9.2, without concern that your favorite tweaks will no longer work.
Upgrading from iOS 9.1 to iOS 9.2 should not cause any problems. It is highly unlikely that the upcoming exploit will not be compatible with iOS 9.1.
