A few days ago, hacker Luca Todesco announced that he had jailbroken iOS 9.2.1. But the hacker did not release the jailbreak and even announced that he does not plan to release it. Now that iOS 9.3 beta 1 has been released, Luca has jailbroken this new version as well. The hacker has posted a video showing the iOS 9.3 beta 1 jailbreak complete with Cydia tweaks on his iPhone 6. Yes, this will not be released by Luca either. But we hope he shares the exploits with the TaiG team so that we might as well get an iOS 9.3 jailbreak soon in the form of Taig 9.3.
Want a New iOS 9 Jailbreak? Stop Updating!
First of all, anyone who values jailbreaks should basically avoid updating their device. This has been the rule of thumb since the beginning of jailbreak time. There’s a couple reason is that sometimes a bug exists in an older firmware that is unjailbroken that has been patched in newer firmware and jailbreak developers often have to make decisions about when to release that jailbreak. For example, say a jailbreak developer have figured out a way to create a jailbreak for iOS 9.1, but 9.2 is expected to release in the next week or so. The developer will often wait to drop the jailbreak to see if the newer firmware patches it. If the jailbreak is still possible on the newer firmware, it’s a better idea to wait till that firmware releases so the jailbreak reaches a larger population of users.
Will We See An iOS 9.2 Or 9.3 Jailbreak Release?
Meanwhile, iOS 9.3 beta 1 is available at the Apple Developer Program and will be seeded to the Public Beta Program soon. Considering that iOS 9.3 is a major point update, it does come with a lot of stability improvements, bug fixes, and some new features like Hebrew for Siri, multiple Apple Watch units support, etc.
If everything goes well, we might see the public release of iOS 9.3 by the end of this month [Jan 2016] itself. And if we are lucky enough, “we might get an iOS 9.3 jailbreak before the next month ends. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best- said by TaiG”
