iOS 9 Jailbreak Status Update Detailed Info

In this post we are going to talk about iOS 9 jailbreak status update. Many Apple's users ask one common question will it be possible to jailbreak their devices after upgrading to iOS 9.

Just yesterday Apple has launched the final version of iOS 9 for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch users. It brought bulk of improvements and new features.

Cupertino based company may have dedicated time and resources to improve iOS, but there’s still inevitably going to be a strong contingent of users who can’t wait for iOS 9 jailbreak tool for iPhone and update their devices to the latest version of OS.

The last publicly available jailbreak was provided for iOS 8.4 by the TaiG team. And currently there is no tool available to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that run iOS 8.4.1 firmware. Apple company has patched few vulnerabilities in iOS 8.4.1 which were used by the TaiG jailbreak that can be used to jailbreak iOS 8.4 – iOS 8.4.1.

Although, another Chinese team Pangu seems to have successfully jailbroken iOS 8.4.1. They have also provided details of the kernel vulnerabilities in the iOS 8.4.1 discovered by them, and revealed that two of those vulnerabilities discovered by them and most likely used to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1 have already been patched with the iOS 9Golden Master build release.

There’s no real confirmation on whether or not the Pangu team will package together its findings relating to the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak and launch it to the public.

So, what about iOS 9 jailbreak status update and its prospect? The good news is that iOS 9 has already been jailbroken. Few days back, iH8sn0w, developer of popular jailbreak tools such as Sn0wbreeze, P0sixspwn published a video to demonstrate that iOS 9 can be jailbroken. The video not only outlined a jailbroken iOS 9 device, but showed very specific things such as verbose boot, custom boot logos running, and demonstrated code injection.

However there is still one question left whether iH8Sn0w. will make this jailbreak available for public or not.

But the fact that it can be jailbroken gives us some hope that a iOS 9 jailbreak tool for download could be launched a lot sooner than the iOS 8 jailbreak was released. Jailbreak for iOS 8 was pushed more than a month after its public release.
