As the end of the year comes close, Apple fans are speculating what happened to the jailbreaks for iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2. Ever since hacking groups released a semi-jailbreak tool, there really has not been any development. However, rumors say that hacking team TaiG has made significant progress.
Team TaiG did not confirm the reports directly, but the information is published in IB Times. The report says that a Chinese news website confirmed the progress of TaiG. The information is also reblogged by the official 3K Assistant Weibo account. However, the Weibo post was taken down.
Popular Science reported that 3K is currently working on an untethered version and asks the public to be patient.
In the case of team Pangu, they allegedly have a working iOS 9.2 Jailbreak but has refused to share any information about the tool. As of now, the team released a semi jail break option for excited Apple users.
The semi-jailbreak tool from Pangu is released in public two months ago. However, some Apple users have doubts to use it because the tool is not yet fully functional. For interested users, here are the steps to install the jailbreak software.
For the first step, visit the official semi-jailbreak tool website through Safari browser. Upon reaching the website, be sure to bookmark it. This method will you help to restart the process automatically in case installation problems occur.
Select the iOS 9.1 jailbreak button and let your iOS version be verified. Press the continue button, and it will initiate the initial jailbreak installation. This process will take 20 to 40 seconds to complete.
After the initial process is finished, you'll be redirected to the installation menu to install the Semi Jailbreak application to your device. After that, press the exit button to finish the installation proces.
Jailbreaking is described as the method of breaking through the phone's security wall to unlock the restrictions imposed by manufacturers on devices. Gadgets with jailbreak software can install previously unavailable apps.
If you're planning to keep your device jailbroken, it is best not to upgrade to the latest iOS 9.2 software. Tech experts said you might get stock in your iOs version, and there is no way you can go back to an earlier iOS version to jailbreak with iOS 9 again.
Meanwhile, as the demand for the jailbreak tools increases, other groups may also be working to unlock and share the jailbreak to the public.
