The patience of the jailbreaking community continues to wear thin as despite several rumors and reports over the past weeks, no iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak (JB) tool has ever been released.
The hopes of the jailbreaking community were raised when after months of silence, rumors emerged stating that the Chinese hacking team, Pangu, is finally ready to release a new JB tool ?within the week.? After the demo by the famous jailbreaking group at the MOSEC conference in Shanghai, the release of a new JB tool was seen as imminent in the near future. However, despite all the hullabaloo raised by several tech sites over the past weeks, the new jailbroken tool never made it to the internet.
In fact, sources close to the famous hacking group claimed that Apple?s iOS 9.3.2 was never part of any jailbreak research by team Pangu. The group rather just showed some of the privacy related problems at the conference where one of the Apple officials was reportedly also present.
Still, other reports claimed that when one of the fans asked the Pangu team about the jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3, a group member promised the tool soon. It seems websites did overstate the definition of ?soon? to mean within a week. Instead, fans can expect to see an iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak most likely within the month of July.
The reason behind this is that Apple is planning to go ahead with the next in line updates of iOS 9.3.3 which would be the right time to release the tool so that maximum number of iPhone and iPad users will be able to get Cydia installed.
Those waiting for the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak tool should not install the next over the air (OTA) updates from Apple as the company will soon start signing off previous version of the iOS. In case users update their devices to iOS 9.3.3, they will be prevented from downgrading to the older version of the iOS. And as such, they will not be able to avail of the latest JB tool.
Still, rumors suggest that team Pangu is even working on a major overhaul in the newest jailbreak tool which will open up both iOS 9.3.2 and iOS 9.3.3. This will likely result in fans being able to use the iOS to its full potential with a single tool.
iOS 10 might become difficult to crack
Meanwhile, it was reported that the future of jailbreaking in iOS 10 has been made far more easier. Team Pangu already demonstrated live the workings of an iOS 10 jailbreak tool in their MOSEC conference. In addition, a famous jailbreak community hacker going by the name of ?iH8sn0w? also have seemingly figured out how to crack the security and succeeded in jailbreaking the iOS.
However, according to a recent report emerging from Yibada, it seems Apple has updated its security with the release of a second beta of the iOS 10 making it much more difficult to hack into the system.
The site said that ?the exploits that allowed for easy entry into the first dev beta have been patched by Apple’s software engineers and are reportedly nowhere to be seen in the just-released iOS 10 public beta/dev beta 2.?
Fans need not lose hope though as by the time the iOS 10 becomes available within the end of 2016 to early 2017, hackers will already be ahead of Apple in cracking codes. Jailbreaking the upcoming dual camera iPhone 7 will be pretty interesting as it will open up much more possibilities.
