iOS 9.2.1 / 9.2 / 9.1 Jailbreak Status Update


April 10, 2016

Can we jailbreak iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.1 on iPhone or iPad? Here we look at the state of the jailbreak with Apple having now released iOS 9.1 / 9.2 / 9.2.1 final versions to the  public.

The introduction of a jailbreak solution with Pangu 9 for iOS 9.0, 9.0.1, and 9.0.2 in fall 2015 took many by surprise. It was, of course, a very welcome surprise for those who were yearning for an untethered jailbreak on Apple’s latest mobile OS, but it still managed to blindside a lot of individuals. Of course, Pangu 9 release also meant that any vulnerabilities used to exploit iOS 9.0.x essentially enter the public domain, leaving Apple to tear the jailbreak apart and patch any of those holes. And Apple did exactly that by patching that jailbreak in iOS 9.1.


In subsequent iOS 9.2 and 9.2.1 releases, Apple patched even more jailbreak exploits making it ever so difficult for jailbreak teams to come out with a public jailbreak. All this while, a number of independent hackers confirmed to have successfully jailbroken iOS 9.2, 9.2.1 and 9.3 betas, but none of them planned to release it to public.
