CanÂ we jailbreak iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.2 or iOS 9.1 on iPhone orÂ 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 Â public.
The introduction of a jailbreak solutionÂ 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 Appleâ€™s latest mobile OS, but it still managed to blindside a lot of individuals. Of course, Pangu 9Â release also meantÂ that any vulnerabilitiesÂ 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 thatÂ 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 successfullyÂ jailbroken iOS 9.2, 9.2.1 andÂ 9.3 betas, but none of them planned to release it toÂ public.
