iOS 9.2 Jailbreak May Still Happen; 9.1 Version Now Available

By on

With each successive iOS release, it is difficult for the jailbreaking groups to come up with Jailbreak version of the OS. Since iOS 9.3 is expected to arrive soon, it is unlikely that jailbreak version of iOS 9.1 will be released. Moreover, it is difficult to producing jailbreak version after iOS 9.0.2.

Apple puts restrictions on iOS devices for some security reasons, and the jailbreaking groups remove these restrictions, which enables the users to root the device and download applications, themes, and extensions that are unavailable at the official Apple?s app store. The restrictions are prevalent on all iOS devices like iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Apple TV 2.

Through the newly released iOS updates, Apple has solved the problems of vulnerabilities in its devices, and the company regularly rolls out the updates. The jailbreaking groups have not found any success with iOS versions like 9.1, 9.2 and 9.2.1. However, Apple users continue to ask for the Jailbreak versions. However, there is news that Lucas Todesco was successful in the jailbreak for iOS 9.2.1 earlier this year. He has also shared a screenshot on Twitter to corroborate his claim, but he said he won?t be releasing the version for the public. Todesco also conceded that it was difficult to jailbreak the iOS 9.2.1 as compared to earlier version, notes Neurogadget.

So the jailbreakers advised Apple users to downgrade their devices to iOS 9.0.2 to take advantage of the jailbreak of the version. However, now Apple has discontinued signing iOS 9.0.2 firmware so it is impossible for the users to downgrade it.

It appears that Apple users and the jailbreaking groups are shifting their focus on iOS 9.3 as reports are popping up about the jailbreak for iOS 9.3 beta. However, actual method is not yet disclosed. Christian Today suggests that the jailbreaking tools will be released after the Apple iOS 9.3 is rolled out.
