iOS 9 jailbreak alert
There’no jailbreak for iOS 9 as same as few of previous iOS updates. Jailbreak developers says that iOS 9 will be the hardest iOS version ever to jailbreak because of rootless technology. Anyway as usual we recommend that you better to avoid having iOS 9 if you have already jailbroken your device. Even it would be better to stay at lower iOS version although it’s non jailbreakable yet. We have written complete guides for iOS 8.2 jailbreak and iOS 8.3 jailbreak. Also there’s possibility of release iOS 8.4 soon which lots of rumors raised about Pangu will release iOS 8.3 jailbreak tool right after iOS 8.4 update.
Today Apple introduced iOS 9 beta for iOS developers at WWDC. Among props and cons one of the best feature is split screen multitasking. Watch the following video of WWDC session introducing the new feature with various multitasking modes Slide Over, Split View, and picture-in-picture.
iOS 9 will be available for public on this fall. Until public release anyone who registered for the iOS public beta testing program, can download iOS 9 on their devices. But we have summed up some important facts that why you should avoid upgrading to iOS 9. Be aware about all factors before your upgrade iOS 9 because there’s no iOS 9 downgrade after public release.
Skip iOS 9 beta if you have only one Apple device
This is a beta version. So, this update has to going through lots of fixes and enhancements while the beta testing period including some severe security troubleshoots. Some of features added to the iOS 9 beta is on very first experimental stage and might have hidden faults or being really unstable. Therefore we recommend to install iOS 9 beta on an additional device if you are an iOS enthusiast. Otherwise it’s better to wait until Apple release iOS 9 public version.
Are you on travel when Beta expiration period?
iOS 9 beta will expire after a certain time frame. Which you will have to return back to your previous iOS version or upgrade to the iOS 9 public version according to your choice. whether upgrade or downgrade it’ll not something to do on the way because it may caused data loss, have to restore the device or any other problem unless the upgrade or downgrade process went smooth. Be aware about your travel plans if you are thinking to have iOS 9 beta on your iOS device.
All your apps won’t support iOS 9
Some of your hard using apps might not support iOS 9 at very first until the app developer upgrade them to be compatible with iOS 9. Some apps won’t run entirely, might crash, unstable or or any other kind of error. You have to be aware about app compatibility if you need to upgrade to iOS 9 beta and if there are lots of essential apps on your device.
There is no way back
You could be able to upgrade your device to iOS 9 easily. But keep in mind that there’s no way back to previous iOS versions. Tinyumbrella or any other tool doesn’t support for iOS downgrade since iOS 8.x.x. Tinyumbrella is just capable of making SHSH blobs of iOS 8.1.2 devices but it never upgraded for restore saved SHSH blobs.
Say goodbye to your jailbreak
Definitely there’s no jailbreak iOS 9 yet. If you have jailbroken your device already, you will lose the jailbreak and all Cydia apps, tweaks when you upgrade iOS 9. We cannot say when will iOS 9 jailbreak will available or we cannot guarantee will it ever happen. It’s always better to stay with latest jailbreakable iOS version (iOS 8.1.2 at the moment) or stay away u[grading to newer iOS versions as much as you can. Because older iOS versions will be jailbroken easily than latest ones. We also have reported you early that iOS 9 will most probably be equipped with rootless technology which is almost impossible to iOS 9 jailbreak.
Does it worth to upgrade for iOS 9?
Sometimes it might not worth at all. Still we don’t know all the features and enhancements of iOS 9. So there’s some possibility of not have anything big than previous iOS versions. You have choice to stay with the current iOS version if you think it’s stable enough on your device.
Rumors raised about Pangu is coming for Jailbreak iOS 8.3 – 8.4 within next few days
Yesterday Tools4Hack reported that the Pangu jailbreak team had a iOS 8.3 jailbreak demo at MOSEC (Mobile Security Summit). We got confirmed the news from a Pangu Jailbreak team member Daniel_4K’s page on Weibo. According to the report Pangu will release jailbreak too for iOS 8.3 as soon as Apple release iOS 8.4. Most probably Apple will release iOS 8.4 as soon as possible due to requirement of fixing current critical errors which exists on iOS 8.3. But some rumors says that Apple is going to introduce iOS 9 beta at WWDC keynote event and iOS 8.4 update will be there right after. Anyway we believe this could be happen any moment.
The original reports of Daniel_4K was in Japanese and the translation was not pretty good. Bet here is the translation of the original text for your reference.
“Speaking Pangu team got released and jailbreak tool type, so when released iOS 8.4 depending on developments in the coming days to jailbreak you can! On the 8th (Japan time 9, 2:00) if is the official release date for iOS 8.4 understood should be, so for the time being to wait it out. It is.”
We can’t made an exact statement that iOS 8.3 jailbreak will release on this Monday, but most probably it could be. Also we found an strong proof of iOS 8.4 beta jailbreak. Just check the video below for Jailbroken iOS 8.4 device Cydia preview.
I’m not going to run into this video too much because the info source is not reputed enough. I will update more details about iOS 8.4 jailbreak once get confirmed everything to be clear and trusted.
UPDATE – Check our latest review about iOS 9 jailbreak on the public release of iOS 9. We have summed up all what we know so far.
Apple making iOS better and better. According to predictions iOS 9 will be as much as perfect than ever. Than means iOS 9 jailbreak will be extremely tough or almost not possible. Within last several iOS upgrades we seen enough examples of Apple beating jailbreak developers and patch up every vulnerability of iOS which discovered by iOS hackers around the worlds. This might be due to Apple started working closely with some genius Jailbreak developers and most probably they passed all discovered vulnerabilities to Apple system developers.
Jailbreak is some kind of threat to iOS and Apple device’s stability. Users get crash, malfunction or damage their devices by using jailbreak apps without much knowledge and also get scammed easily. In the history Apple has worked hard to overcome jailbreak possibility of iOS. If you are not aware about jailbreak, It’s simply hacking into the iOS system core and get privileges to control the device as you wish with third party apps and tweaks which not officially permitted or rejected by Apple.
Anyway, Jailbreak iOS 9 will be important if you are an Cydia enthusiast. Because although you can keep current devices jailbroken by refusing to upgrade, the new iPhone 6S and other latest versions definitely comes with iOS 9.
iOS 9 supported devices
- Upcoming iPhone 6S, iPhone 6 plus S and all upcoming iPads
- iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5
- iPad Air 2 , iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 2
You can try iOS 9 beta versions when they are available in Public Beta testing program. But keep in mind that you cannot downgrade from iOS 9 to iOS 8 after Apple officially release iOS 9 to the public. As same as you will lose your current iOS 8 jailbreak. There are rumors around that iPhone 4S also will be compatible with iOS 9. but we can’t predict about that Apple release iOS 9 beta.
TaiG Jailbreak iOS 9
Neither TaiG nor Pangu will jailbreak iOS 9 after introducing rootless technology. All vulnerabilities they used to exploit iOS system are outdated now. TaiG or Pangu hasn’t discovered anything new to exploit any iOS iOS version after iOS 8.1.2 so they failed to jailbreak iOS 8.3 and 8.4. Even no jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3. iOS 8.3 and 8.4 will be stable enough to exist for a long time and it’s a good time to release a jailbreak for these versions if they already have the job done.
iOS 9 preview
According to Apple, prevent iOS 9 jailbreak is their effort to protect Apple users from spam and unexpected crashes. The new security technology which they going to prevent jailbreak iOS 9 is called “rootless”.
Cydia will never get admin privileges on iOS 9 with rootless technology which means no iOS 9 jailbreak. But we are hopeful about capability of iOS hackers. undoubtedly the iOS 9 jailbreak will be a big challenge for them.
Jailbreak iOS 8.1.3
Bad news for iOS 8.1.3 users who were looking for jailbreak their devices. Apple has just stopped signing iOS8.2 beta 1 and beta 2 since 27th of Feb.
