Fans of jail broken iOS are in for a treat as the latest reports suggest that the ongoing month might see the launch of two jailbreaks, one for the iOS 9.1 and the other for the iOS 9.2. iOS 9.2 was released by Apple more than a month ago and it was previously reported that renowned jail breaking teams like Pangu and TaiG were waiting for the iOS 9.2.1 beta 2 to be rolled out before releasing a jailbreak for this version of iOS.
Apple had earlier released beta 1 for iOS 9.2.1 in the previous week and a report from a renowned website states that the second beta has just been rolled out by the company for developers and public testers. iOS 9.2 arrived with some bug fixes and improved security measures which made it difficult for the hackers to jailbreak it.
Users who had voluntarily taken part in the iOS beta testing program should receive the second beta OTA. Apart from this, users who are already using first iOS 9.2.1 beta can download the second beta which carries a build number of 13D14 via Apple’s iOS dev center.
It is being speculated that the second beta will be the last beta that will be released for the iOS 9.2.1 and thus it can be expected that the final release of the iOS 9.2.1 will arrive soon. Keeping in mind the time gap between the release of the two betas for iOS 9.2.1, the final version should be rolled out by Apple in the coming one or two weeks.
TaiG and Pangu had previously reported significant progress in their quest of developing jailbreaks for the iOS 9.1 and the iOS 9.2. TaiG even claims that they have already developed a working jailbreak but it will be sometime before the jailbreaking software is released as the team is currently running some final tests on it before making it public.
Pangu is a force to reckon with when it comes to the task of jailbreaking the iOS. The jailbreaking team already has three successful jailbreaking software releases to its name. It had earlier released jailbreaking tools for iOS 7.0.6 through iOS 7.1.2, iOS 8 through iOS 8.0.2 and iOS 9 through iOS 9.0.2.
However, its hard work of Pangu with the iOS 9 jailbreak was marred by Apple when the company released iOS 9.1 within a short time of Pangu releasing the jailbreak. The iOS 9.1 blocked out the effects of the iOS 9 jailbreak and users who upgraded their devices to the iOS 9.1 were stuck with a factory version of the iOS as Apple had deactivated the down-gradable feature which did not allow the devices to roll back to iOS 9.
Pangu has already made a semi-jailbreak tool available for download but users are skeptical about using this software as it has not yet reached a stage of completion and comprises of unfinished elements which has the potential to damage their devices.
However, if some users would like to try out the semi jailbreak tool, they need to access the official semi jailbreak tool website by using Safari browser. It is recommended for users to bookmark this site as this would ensure that no damage is caused to the device if the installation process fails. Bookmarking the site will also automatically restart the installation in case of failures.
The website provides step by step guidance to users on the installation process using which they can install the semi jailbreak on their devices. 3K Assistant, the partner of team TaiG had previously stated that the developers are hard at work to find a way to bypass the strict security measures incorporated by Apple in the latest iOS.
Apparently, their hard work has paid off as the developers have been able to make a significant breakthrough with the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. 3K Assistant further added that they believed that an unearthed jailbreak version of the iOS 9.2 will be made available to fans shortly.
