Tag: iOS 9.1 Jailbreak
It’s been more than 2 months since Apple killed the iOS 9.1 jailbreak, and in that time we’ve seen the public release of iOS 9.1 update, 9.2 update and also a beta version of 9.2.1 update, with no update to the Pangu9 tool. So as you can imagine, we’ve received a lot of questions regarding the current status of the jailbreak. Here is what we know so far about iOS 9.1 – iOS 9.2 Jailbreak.
Apple released iOS 9 on September 16. That was quickly followed by iOS 9.0.1 and 9.0.2 later in the month, with significant bug and security fixes. The iOS 9 jailbreak landed on October 13, courtesy of the talented Pangu Team, and iOS 9.0 – iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak was compatible with all iOS 9.0 – iOS 9.0.2 running devices.
Pangu 9 jailbreak tool was stopped by Apple on October 21, with the release of iOS 9.1 update, which patched several security exploits used by the team of hackers. So, 9.0.2 is the latest version of iOS that’s eligible to be jailbreak, and Apple has long stopped signing the software, meaning you can’t up/downgrade to it.
We’ve heard that both Pangu and TaiG are working on jailbreak tools for the latest public version of iOS, which is 9.2 update. In fact, a recent report pointed to a ‘Weibo'(Chinese) post by TaiG partner 3K Assistant which indicated their Taig iOS 9.2 Jailbreak tool is nearly complete. Unfortunately, that’s all we’ve heard—we have no knowledge of an exact release date.
Now all we have to do is sit and wait. The aforementioned teams aren’t much for status updates, and they have been extremely sporadic with recent releases. An iOS 9.2 jailbreak could literally come at anytime. So for those of you anxiously awaiting its arrival, be sure to keep following us, because as soon as we know more, you’ll update.

If you’re on iOS 9.1, then you can upgrade to latest iOS 9.2 update, because if TaiG or PanGu upgrade theirs utility, it will be compatible with both iOS 9.1 jailbreak and iOS 9.2 Jailbreak

All we can do at this point is wait for the Pangu iOS 9.2 jailbreak for iOS 9.2 Cydia download, which should be released soon if it is ready, assuming Apple hasn’t fixed any other additional exploit that would break the jailbreak in iOS 9.2 update.
