iOS 9.1 iPhone Jailbreak Untethered Is Developed

If you have been trying to find iOS 9.1 iPhone jailbreak untethered then we have some news for you. Vulnerability and exploit acquisition platform Zerodium had announced a $1 million dollar bounty for an untethered browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9 right after the iOS software update was launched by Apple.

It looks like they have their winners, as a team who made a remote browser-based iOS 9.1 untethered jailbreak has apparently come forward. The jailbreak also works on iOS 9.2, which has currently been seeded to developers. But don’t get your hopes too high.

Apple had patched two vulnerabilities in iOS 9.1 used by the Pangu 9 jailbreak. It is quite an incredible achievement as browser-based exploit is considered extremely difficult. They are also the easiest ways to jailbreak iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The last browser-based jailbreak for iOS devices was JailbreakMe that was launched back in 2011 by a well-known hacker comex.

Zerodium, in exchange for its $1 million, now has its iOS exploit and they will likely never be sharing any more information about something that has cost it quite the tidy sum of money. And it looks like that they are not going to release it in the form of iOS 9.1 iPhone jailbreak untethered tool to public. It is unclear for what purpose this one million dollar hack will be used for.

So iOS 9.1 jailbreak release date stays unknown. But we are sure that others teams are not working to make iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 jailbreakable, even if the hack turns out to be less elegant than the one that cost Zerodium a cool million dollars.

It remains to be seen if Pangu team or other jailbreak teams can discover the exploits in iOS 9.1/iOS 9.2 firmwares. Hope it will be very soon.
