iOS users who recently managed to grab their iOS 9.2 jailbreak tools from the internet should exercise precaution and refrain from using any such downloaded tool as it’s probably a fake version.
As of now, there is no working jailbreak for both iOS 9.2.1 and iOS 9.2 although at least one set of such fake jailbreak is currently on the loose, luring and victimizing unsuspecting users.
According to Tech Times, the current set of working jailbreaks were developed and released by Pangu, a well-known development team based in China. The version is only available for iOS 9.1 for 64-bit devices that already has the firmware installed.
Reacting to this development, Apple announced that the company is not going to sign iOS 9.1 and 9.2, making it practically impossible for users to downgrade from iOS 9.2.1.
However, it is unlikely that the real intention behind this move is not to hinder from cracking the system as the company seeded out the version for all iOS 9.1 users rather than letting iOS 9.1 to drain.At this point, it remains interesting to see if the developers at Pangu succeed in developing exploits for forthcoming iOS 9.3.
Meanwhile, there are reports that the sixth iteration of iOS 9.3 beta continues to be jailbreak friendly – at least for now.
Worth noting, hacker and developer Lucas Todesco claimed to have successfully cracked iOS 9.2.1 earlier this year. He even published a screenshot on Twitter to back up his claim. Unfortunately, Todesco refused to make the cracked version available for public use.
