A series of iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak rumors have been surfing the web recently that a jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4.1 running devices is already in the works and could be released soon in the future. Although, we can’t vouch for the validity of these rumors, but nonetheless we are intrigued by such a prospect. As of now, iOS 8.4 is the last firmware which can be jailbroken by the TaiG tool.
Although the great new features found in iOS 9 would make it hard for me to personally backtrack to 8 version, I understand that some of you would jump at the chance if it meant being able to jailbreak.
Although there is no fixed iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak release date but Twitter user going by the name Luca Todesco claims that he has been working on a jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4.1 and could be releasing it soon in the near future. The good news is that iOS 8.4.1 firmware signing window is still opened. This means that if you’re running a later version of iOS then this is the best time for you to downgrade your device back to iOS 8.4.1 if you’re interested in jailbreaking it once a legit tool becomes available and the rumors turn out to be true. Remember that Apple could close the signing window anytime making it impossible to downgrade to iOS 8.4.1 anymore.
Apple closed its iOS 8.4 signing window back on August 22nd. This was 9 days after it launched iOS 8.4.1 to the public. Apple closed iOS 8.3 back on July 7th, which was a almost 7 days following the release of iOS 8.4 on June 30th.
In conclusion we can say that iOS 9 has been out for a week and there’s an increased chance that Apple will soon close the signing window for iOS 8.4.1.
Before making some actions it is recommended to check the signing status of iOS 8.4.1 by visiting IPSW.me/8.4.1. At present time Apple is still singing iOS 8.4.1 for every eligible iDevice, but as mentioned, that could very well change in short time. Hopefully status of iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak rumors will turn out to be true all we will enjoy jailbreak tool with the bulk of great tweaks very soon.
