iOS 9 / iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak Roundup: Everything We Currently Know

The question is: Can I jailbreak my iOS 9 or iOS 9.0.2 on my iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad? Let’s have a look at the status of a potential jailbreak for iOS 9. The iOS 9 has arrived as the’ latest and greatest’ iOS version released to date, and it does come with a few additional features and some pretty exciting additions.

Apple have certainly put a lot of time and dedication into improving iOS, but there’s always going to be a large group of people who just can’t wait to jailbreak their iOS 9 devices and liberate them from Apple’s rules and regulations.

What we know at this point in time is that it was the TaiG team who provided the last publicly available jailbreak for iOS 8.4. Pangu is the other team renowned for jailbreaking, and they managed to liberate iOS 8.4.1, but claim that many of the vulnerabilities used in that jailbreaking process have been patched with the release of iOS 9. We haven’t yet been advised as to whether the Pangu team will package its findings on the jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 and release it to the general public.

So, What’s Happening with iOS 9 Jailbreak?

Anyone familiar with jailbreaking probably already knows that well-known jailbreaker iH8SnOw recently uploaded a video demonstration to YouTube on his successful attempt at jailbreaking the iOS 9. Not only did the video show a jailbroken iOS 9 device, it also highlighted some very specific things, like custom boot logos running, verbose boot, and demonstrated code injection. But what we’re still unsure of is whether or not iH8SnOw will make this jailbreak available to the public. So, what does that mean for us?

Basically, what it means is that we now have to sit back and wait to see if TaiG or the Pangu team will be able to unearth the vulnerabilities and provide us with a jailbreak for the iOS 9. This is not as bad as it might sound. Just the fact that iH8SnOw has already shown us a functioning jailbreak should provide optimism that not only is it possible, it’s also possible to get this done pretty quick if they’re looking in the right places. Because iOS 9.0.2 has already been seeded to testers, it’s highly likely that Pangu and TaiG are already working on 9.0.1.

An eminent jailbreak might still be released, because iH8SnOw is still working on a fully-functional jailbreak, evidenced in his recent YouTube video. And, to further up the ante, the Zerodium team (standing for ‘zero-day acquisition platform’) recently announced a $1m bounty for the successful jailbreak of iOS 9 untethered – browser-based method.

This news has spread like wildfire through Reddit and other social networking sites, with the firm announcing very proudly that this offering would be the ‘world’s biggest zero-day bug bounty program in history’.

And so, because you know you can trust us to bring you the news as it happens, if and when we receive further information on the iOS 9 jailbreak issue, you’ll be the first to know. Stay tuned to this site.

UPDATE: iOS 9.0.2 Jailbreak for iPhone
