It has been months since the official Pangu team released a proper jailbreak tool to the public and because of that, people are beginning to lose hope for the next jailbreak utility. But don’t worry, there has been some developed that might get people’s hopes up.
So without further delay, I present four things you need to know about iOS 9.2.1 to iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak.
1. 32-bit devices like iPhone 5 or below will probably get a jailbreak soon:
That’s right. If you own an iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad Air or iPad mini, etc. then chances are, you’re probably going to get a jailbreak utility within a few weeks. I can say this because about a week ago a Youtube user “Flying JB” posted a video in which he exploited a 15 year old vulnerability on a 32-bit Apple device, through some investigation it has been pointed out that this video is legitimate even though the exploiter did not seem to have Cydia installed. Flying JB also ended up posting the source code at Github, all it needs now is a programmer to compile the code which won’t take long.
Our sources indicate that the vulnerability exploited by Flying JB has been patched in iOS 9.3.2. So, If you have an iPhone 5 on iOS 9.3.1 or below then you are one of the lucky ones, all you have to do is wait.
2. 64-bit Devices like iPhone 5s or above may need to wait a little longer:
Because 64-bit devices have an extra security measure that is designed to detect iOS tampering which automatically triggers certain safeguards in the iPhone, which end up preventing the jailbreak. The security measure is known as KPP, and it is encrypted so 64-bit devices have to be jail-broken by exploiting bugs that end up tampering with the iOS without triggering KPP safeguards. It sounds easy, but we can assure you that it isn’t.
3. An Italian hacker has been notorious for claiming to have jailbroken his iPhones repeatedly:
Luca Todesco has been teasing everyone with his videos for months, and the videos included his phone being jailbroken while on 9.3 and above. Unfortunately, He has declared that he is not going to post his exploit. Since he has not contributed any utility to the Jailbreak community in the past few months, many would soundly claim that he is a charlatan.
4. Team Pangu is silent, but not for long:
A storm has been brewing, and 3utools has posted an invitation to a MOSEC Conference hosted by Team Pangu the event is supposed to take place on 1st July 2016. It has been hugely speculated that Team Pangu will release iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak for all devices. However, it must be kept in mind that it is a security conference, and Pangu doesn’t release utilities at these kinds of events. They might not release a jailbreak at this conference but I can almost be sure that they will discuss security holes in the iOS and hopefully by the end of the meeting, Team Pangu will have an exploit that can be utilized as a jailbreak tool.
