iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak Release Date Review

For those folks who are eagerly waiting for iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak release date we have some positive news. As you may know with iOS 9.1 firmware version public release Apple has patched several exploits that Pangu used to develop its jailbreak for iOS 9 – 9.0.2 devices. Unfortunately, since that time there has been no important news from Pangu team about the progress of development of a new jailbreak solution for iOS 9.1 and above. As a result of the slowness in the jailbreak scene, many users are either stuck without a jailbreak or are living without the latest features such as Night Shift mode, welcomed changes to Notes, Health, News and CarPlay seeded with recently released iOS updates.


Few weeks ago hacker Luca Todesco revealed that he successfully jailbroke 9.2.1 and 9.3 beta 1 version. And now this hacker has posted a new video demonstrating successfully jailbroken iPhone 6 running iOS 9.2 public release update installed.


As you can see from the video above, to prove his jailbreak the hacker performs different options possible only on a jailbroken iPhone, including launching Cydia to show his iOS version. Although the untethered jailbreak is only demonstrated on iOS 9.2 in the video, but the hacker persuades that his tool will also work on iOS 9.2.1 and 9.3 beta versions.

Luca Todesco might not be a well known hacker to some users but as per to one source Apple company has recently credited him for security vulnerabilities that were fixed in iOS 9.2 version. While the hacker still doesn’t plan to release it, it’s still good to see latest versions of iOS being vulnerable to jailbreakable exploits.

Although the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak release date stays for us unknown. But the video was released for demonstration purposes to raise hope that a jailbreak is possible. And what we can do is to wait till a larger jailbreak team actually go through with releasing a public jailbreak tool for iOS 9.1 - 9.3 beta. As liberating iOS 9.3 beta appears to be possible, it would make more sense for any jailbreak team to wait for the iOS 9.3 public release before launching any new jailbreak solution.
