With iOS 9.1 minor update users who installed this firmware version wonder if it is possible to jailbreak iOS 9.1 or not? You know that there is iOS 9 – 9.0.2 Pangu jailbreak tool that works on three versions of iPhone and iPad mobile operating system [9, 9.0.1 and 9.0.2]. What should you do if you installed 9.1 and wish to also download jailbreak tweaks.
As noted by Apple, it managed to patch the holes in iOS 9.1 code. Pangu team also reported that two of their vulnerabilities were killed. Can I jailbreak iOS 9.1 firmware version? No, you cannot right now because there is no TaiG jailbreak available and Pangu tool is ‘killed’ with the update.
If you still want to use iOS 9.1 jailbreak you should get back to 9.0.2 firmware. It is still possible to downgrade 9.1 to 9.0.2 because the Cupertino-based company is signing the previous version. As soon as Apple stops signing this you won’t be able to return the older operating system and will have to use the most recent one which cannot be jailbroken.
The ‘fruit’ firm thanked Pangu hackers [here is how to avoid Pangu boot loop] for finding two exploits. The company added release notes to 9.1 firmware and noted that a problem was in the DNS library and it is fixed as well as corruption memory problem that was present in the kernel.
Maybe Pangu will find new holes in the firmware code and present iOS 9.1 jailbreak tool soon but no one can guarantee this. For example, if you are running iOS 8.4.1 you cannot jailbreak it. At the same time you can untether iOS 8.4 and earlier firmwares, iOS 9 – 9.0.2.
Yay! After so many rumores about iOS 9 jailbreak release date and doubts about soon tool launch hackers surprised all iPhone and iPad users with the new solution [here are main reasons why people choose to jailbreak]. Pangu team that is well-known for offering jailbreaks in the past managed to create a working untethered program that supports current iOS 9 firmware versions.
iOS 9 jailbreak download is available for iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1 and iOS 9.0.2 platforms [here are direct iOS 9.0.2 ipsw links]. These are all current firmwares Apple launched in September. The company is now testing iOS 9.1 beta version but it is not clear when exactly the ‘fruit’ giant is planning to offer the final upgrade to public.
If you are running one of iOS 9 platform versions and have iPhone or iPad model that is supported by iOS 9 [users with iPhone 4s and newer phones and iPad 2 or newer tablets] – you can install the latest iOS 9 jailbreak Pangu and untether their device. By the way, iPod touch 5G and 6G can also be jailbroken with the same tool.
Step 3. Windows users are ok however the jailbreak supports only Windows PC so Mac owners can install Windows virtual machine.
Step 4. If you are already running the latest Apple mobile OS which you update to via OTA-update you’ll have to re-install it manally. Over-the-air upgrade can cause issues and jailbreak fail.
Step 5. You are ready to jailbreak.
Will TaiG also offer the iOS 9 jailbreaking program soon? There are several groups of hackers from China who presented the solution for iOS 8. Maybe TaiG and PP Jailbreak will soon offer there programs and users will get more choices for Windows and OS X platforms.
With the new mobile firmware update a lot of Apple users wonder about iOS 9 jailbreak update and well-known hacker’s teams speak about this important issue. Is it possible to jailbreak iOS 9? Are there any new vulnerabilities found by TaiG, Pangu or PP jailbreak groups? Can you untether your iOS 9 iPhone or iPad today?
As the document presented by Apple notes the company patched the iOS 9 vulnerability found by hackers and use for jailbreaking iOS 8 version. This means that iOS is not jailbreakable right now. The famous ‘fruit’ giant already credited both TaiG and Pangu for finding the security exploit in iOS 9 version. You can guess that this flaw is already patched.
The iPhone maker managed to kill the holes in the code and fixed the issues that could be used for jailbreaking iOS 9 today. It can take hackers a few weeks or even months to find the new solution and discover new vulnerabilities in the 2015 mobile firmware version. If this happens soon – we might be able to get the iOS 9 jailbreak this fall.
It could also happen that jailbreaking teams create a working tool in the end of September or early October. One developer [iH8sn0w] hs already proved that iOS 9 can be jailbroken. He demonstrated his solution on video but is not planning to make the program public. Could iH8sn0w share the exploit with Pangu, TaiG or PP Jailbreak? We don’t know but the jailbreaking community surely exchanges opinions and ideas and this might also happen.
Are you looking for the iOS 9 jailbreak availability or do you like all the features present in iOS 9 and don’t want to customize this system?
Apple released the new firmware for its mobile devices. Should I update to iOS 8.4.1? This is the most common question users keep asking with the new launch. Mainly this is because of the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak possibilities. Is it possible to use TaiG or PP jailbreak tools on this most recent operating system or not?
A lot of Apple fans were waiting for iOS 8.1.3 jailbreak for months in a row. No one knew if the tool could be present before iOS 9 release. Finally, after iOS 8.3 become public TaiG team of hackers introduced iOS 8.1.3 – 8.3 solution that also worked on the next iOS 8.4 version. PP Jailbreak team joined this game soon by offering an alternative program that also supported all these firmwares on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch and worked on both Windows and Mac platforms.
Can I jailbreak iOS 8.4.1? Unfortunately, Apple patched some of the exploits there were used in the untethering tools and you can no longer use the current TaiG program to perform the jailbreak of this version. PP tool also doesn’t support it so you have to wait for hackers to upgrade their solutionis and offer a new update that can hack the new mobile OS.
It is best to be attentive now and download tweaks from trusted sources only if you are running iOS 8.4 and don’t want to be forced to restore to iOS 8.4.1 and lose your jailbreak state. Keep in mind that Apple will not sign iOS 8.4 forever. In a week or two weeks from now the company will stop signing it and it will impossible to downgrade 8.4.1 to 8.4.
It is also great if you could save iOS 8.4 SHSH blobs for future use. If ever Redsn0w is updated you might be able to restore to this firmware in case iOS 9 and 8.4.1 cannot be jailbroken for a long time. Apple is now doing everything to make the process complicated so it takes hackers much time to find new exploits and take advantage of them.

How to Switch Between iPhone Keyboards
Step 1. The tweak you might wanna try is called KeySwipe. It is sold at $0.99 on Cydia. You can find the tool in the BigBoss repository. Please note that iOS 7 firmware is also supported. However it is better to jailbreak iOS 8.4 if you are using the iPhone 6.

TaiG iOS 8.4 jailbreak Mac is finally released by the Chinese team of hackers for Apple computer fans. The company used to only present the Windows version at first. This June TaiG hackers presented the first iOS 8.1.3 – 8.3 jailbreak solution which later started to support the newer 8.4 firmware version released by Apple.
If you want to use Mac iOS 8.4 jailbreak tool from TaiG you can do this now. TaiG iOS 8.4 tool at first supported only Windows platform. A lot of Mac owners didn’t want to install Windows virtual machine because found this method too complicated. Some of them performed the jailbreak with PP tool which is the second program available for iOS 8.1.3 – 8.4 firmwares.
It took hackers some time to unveil the new solution. iOS 8.4 will soon be updated to version iOS 8.4.1 which is now being tested by developers and public beta testers. It is not clear if TaiG supports 8.4.1 and the upcoming iOS 9 with a lot of great features, options and enhancements.
While Apple is signing iOS 8.4 [it no longer signs iOS 8.3 which makes it impossible to downgrade to this firmware version on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch] you have time to perform 8.4 jailbreak with TaiG 1.0.0 Mac release.
In case anything goes wrong during the procedure you can always use the alternative since both TaiG and PP now work with Windows / Mac and can untether any mobile firmware starting with iOS 8.1.3 and up to 8.4 version.
iOS 8.3 and 8.4 can be easily jailbroken with TaiG or PP Jailbreak on Windows and Mac computers. Still users who have successfully untethered their Apple smartphone or tablet noticed they were locked out of Snapchat account. It seems that Snapchat doesn’t like different Cydia tweaks to interfere and prefers dealing with jailbroken users manually.
If you get Snapchat account locked issue you have most likely downloaded and installed Phantom or other iOS 8 Cydia tweaks that are trying to break the limitations in Snapchat. This is what causes the program to simply crack down on people.
The company seems to figure out who is jailbroken and uses tweaks and locks their accounts for good. Those iPhone owners whose accounts were locked saw only one reason for this – ‘plugins’ that were installed additionally.
If your Snapchat account is locked you will get the message about this state when you are trying to login. You’ll be also asked to remove all the plugins you installed and unlock your Snapchat account through https://www.snapchat.com/unlock site.
Cydia has a lot of jailbreak tweaks that are using popular applications and adding extra features to them. Users like to customize a lot of things including iOS 8 apps but developers are not always happy when jailbreakers are doing this and some of them fight with this by locking out your account.
The only thing that confuses users is that Snapchat is cracking down users and not jailbreakers. How can the program know that someone is using Phantom or other tweaks? This has no explanation at the moment but the fact is you’ll have to uninstall all the Cydia jailbreak apps that are working with Snapchat in order to unlock your account and continue using this tool.
Maybe devs will find a way how to bypass the restrictions in the future and release tweaks that don’t bring errors and don’t make your account locked.
Chinese hackers who created new iOS 8.4 jailbreak TaiG continue working on the tool’s upgrade. The team of developers recently fixed some jailbreaking bugs [TaiG used to reach 30-40% and freeze or stop at 60%] and optimized the procedure by offering one beta version.

For example, a lot of Apple users are still getting another issue. They get stuck at 20% during the untether procedure and for now there is only one method of fixing it. You should downgrade your iTunes desktop program to version 12.0.1 in order to solve this issue.
