Apple has just released the iOS 9.2.1 beta, which comes a week after the release of iOS 9.2 update. While Apple is actively releasing updates for the mobile operating system, sadly same is not true for the jailbreak developers. It has been months since the last major update to Pangu was released, which currently supports iOS versions up to iOS 9.0.2. So if you update to iOS 9.1 or later you cannot jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. If you are new to jailbreaking or haven’t been following the jailbreak scene for a while, then we have prepared this FAQ post, which features some important information about the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. Read on if you care about jailbreak and want to know about its future releases.
Is there a jailbreak for iOS 9.2?
No, at least not the one that is publicly available. The last jailbreak-able version of iOS 9 is iOS 9.0.2. Any software update released after that cannot be jailbroken. This includes iOS 9.1, iOS 9.2 and the recently released iOS 9.2.1 beta.
Is anyone working on the jailbreak?
We are not quite sure if a jailbreak team is working on the iOS 9.2 jailbreak or not. However there are multiple teams who have released jailbreak tools for iOS in the past including Pangu, TaiG, Evad3rs etc., who could well be working on the next jailbreak tool. Right now we have no reason to believe that any of these teams are not working on a jailbreak. As jailbreak teams mostly work in secret and only announce their success or the fact that they are working on a jailbreak when they are ready to release it, we cannot tell for certain which team is going to release a jailbreak – or when.
When will a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 get released?
Currently there’s no ETA for iOS 9.2 jailbreak’s release.
What is the last jailbreak-able version of iOS?
iOS 9.0.2 is the last jailbreak supported version of iOS. As of now any update released after iOS 9.0.2 cannot be jailbroken using Pangu or any other jailbreak tool.
Can you downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 or any jailbreak-able version of iOS?
Unfortunately you cannot downgrade to a jailbreak-able version of iOS. Apple has already stopped signing iOS 9.0.2, so only people who can jailbreak right now are those who are running this or an even older version of the operating system on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. If you are running iOS 9.0.2 or earlier then check our guide here for more details.
