It has been a long time since iOS 9 lovers were expecting a Jailbreak for their iDevices running iOS 9. We have already watched a video of untethered Jailbreak of iOS 9 on YouTube, but the exploit was not released to the public. It was a tempting trick, but now no more temptation as the wait is ultimately over.
Finally, to everyone’s surprise, the famous Pangu team has announced a Jailbreak for iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2. It was definitely not expected in near future, but this seems to be a great gift for iOS 9 users. The Jailbreak is currently available for Windows PC, and now we can soon expect it to be available on Mac PC as well.
iOS 9 Untethered Jailbreak Released by Pangu
All the devices that support iOS 9 are eligible for Jailbreak. Supported iOS are 9.0.1 and 9.0.2; that means if you are using the public beta version of iOS 9.1, you will not be able to Jailbreak it. You can restore from a backup and get back to iOS 9.0.2 if you are so anxious to Jailbreak you iDevice.
You can download the jailbreak tool from here for Windows PC. There is no official word from Pangu, on when Mac users will be receiving this tool.
The big question is, whether users should Jailbreak iOS 9.0.2 as iOS 9.1 public version is expected anytime soon. We can also expect Apple to counter the Jailbreak exploit in its next update as iOS 9.1 is still in beta.
Personally, I am not going to hold myself back from jailbreaking my iPhone. With a number of feature-rich Cydia tweaks already lined up to enhance the user experience of iOS 9, it would be great to customize the latest iOS.
As for Apple making it extremely hard for jailbreak community to hack iOS, it has always been a battle of cat and mouse. The harder the tech giant makes iOS jailbreak, the smarter the jailbreak community becomes.
