iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak Status Update And Prospectives

Let's talk about iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak status, as since its release there are a lot of users asking is it possible to jailbreak their iOS 8.4.1device or not. For those who interested is there a jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 we have short answer - no.

Currently, it is not possible to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 devices with the TaiG tool or PP exploit that worked with iOS 8.4 – iOS 8.1.3. Apple has patched several exploits used by the TaiG team for developing their jailbreaking.

As per iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak release date, then in it still unknown however good news is that the Pangu team has recently demonstrated an iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak. But we can say that it is highly unlikely that the team will push the jailbreak to the public at least until iOS 9 launch.

Actually it doesn’t make sense to release a jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 with iOS 9 just around the corner. But concerning the fact that Pangu Team hasn’t launched the jailbreak, it is quite possible that the exploits used for the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak haven’t been patched in iOS 9.

If you planned to jailbreak your device then you should wait as Apple has also stopped signing iOS 8.4 firmware file, so you can no longer downgrade from iOS 8.4.1 to iOS 8.4. It is known fact that Cupertino giant uses this mechanism to keep all jailbreakers at bay. It not only seeds new software updates, that fix the vulnerabilities used for jailbreak, it also stops signing the older iOS firmware file, which prevents users from downgrading back to the older iOS version that can be jailbroken.
Now you know the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak status and if you’re on iOS 8.4.1, all you can do is to be more patient.

If the exploits used in the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak can be used to jailbreak iOS 9, then that would be excellent as Pangu team will be able to launch a jailbreak after iOS 9 release, which should also work with iOS 8.4.1 devices. It is expected that Apple will launch iOS 9 on September 16. In that case, it will be possible to upgrade to iOS 9 directly, and jailbreak your device.

If Apple has patched some or all the exploits in iOS 9, then Pangu team will push a jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1. As you see in both case there is the way out.
