iOS 8.2 Jailbreak Release Date Rumors and Status Info
A lot of users are now talking about iOS 8.2 jailbreak release date because Apple is officially no longer signing iOS 8.1.3 version and hopes that 8.1.3 becomes jailbreakable soon are fading away. How much do we know about the possibilities of 8.2 untether program launch?
Let’s start from the first question that troubles the minds of millions. Can I jailbreak iOS 8.2? Sadly, you cannot do this because PP Jailbreak as well as TaiG program do not support Apple mobile firmware version 8.2. Can you stay on 8.1.3 in hopes for the solution? You can, but no one guarantees that the jailbreak is released tomorrow or the next month.
Those of you who are still running earlier versions of firmware are not advised to update because you can still jailbreak 8.1.2, 8.1 and 8 systems on both iPhone and iPad, Windows and Mac. Starting with 8.1.3 the exploits have been patched for good and maybe for a long while.
The current iOS 8.2 jailbreak status is unclear. The groups of Chinese hackers assure that such a program is to be eventually presented to public but they avoid naming any possible dates of the release.
This Friday, March 27, a big group of hackers will meet at the 2015 Mobile Security Summit. They might exchange their thoughts and ideas on how to jailbreak iOS 8.2 and, who knows, this gathering might lead to the final release of the long-awaiting program or it might not.
For now, before Apple unveiled public version of iOS 8.3 you still have time to save 8.2 SHSH blobs using TinyUmbrella that was recently updated to support firmware 8. Since the previous version is not signed by the iPhone maker you can no longer save its blobs.
If hackers find a way how to access Apple’s system it might be possible again to downgrade to unsigned version with the SHSHs saved and jailbreak earlier firmware versions.
