For Those Missing iOS 9 Jailbreak, New iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak is on its Way!
If you prefer jailbreaking iPhones and iPads because of the customization, tweaks and control it offers, then here’s some good news for you:
A new iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak is almost here, and it will be released very soon.
What This Means
Say that you have updated your Apple devices to iOS 9.0 / 9.0.1 firmware. You will probably know this new firmware is tough to crack / jailbreak (even if it is not, we haven’t received any concrete information yet).
So it is safe to assume that iOS 9 jailbreak will take longer than expected.
And that leaves us with the old iOS 8 – specifically iOS 8.4 and iOS 8.4.1.
On August 2nd, iOS 8.4 jailbreak was released.
Then Apple released iOS 8.4.1 on August 13th, which fixed the iOS 8.4 jailbreak exploit – meaning you couldn’t jailbreak iOS 8.4.1.
And what does all this mean? Users stuck with iOS 8.4 are still enjoying the jailbreak using tools TaiG jailbreak or PP Jailbreak. And very soon, even iOS 8.4.1 users can get the jailbreak.
How It All Started
You need to stick with iOS 8.4.1 because a recent tweet posted by Luca Todesco shows that a new jailbreak is coming.
He happens to “love memory corruption exploitation.” And while tweeting about iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak, he says:
“Install [iOS 8.4.1] until you can. Bugs are there. No clue when I release, but a jailbreak *will* come.”
In other words, a jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 is in the works. And what if you want it? Then downgrade from iOS 9 to iOS 8.4.1 (tutorial here). Once you have downgraded, it’s a waiting game.
Luca Todesco found out zero-day vulnerabilities in OS X this year, and since then he has been researching the exploitation independently. We don’t know when can we expect the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreaking tool – yet, if you have a spare device, go ahead and install iOS 8.4.1.
Because a jailbreaking is coming – coming soon.
Note: As usual, we will update this post when we get more info. For now, remember to avoid iOS 8.4.1 jailbreaking scams that are everywhere on the web.
