We’ve been waiting a while for an iOS 9.2 jailbreak, but an individual developer has successfully achieved an iOS 9.2 jailbreak — more specifically an iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak.
An iOS 9 jailbreak was first released back in October last year just about a month after iOS 9 was initially released. However, the jailbreak was quickly patched up about a week later with the release of the iOS 9.1 update from Apple, which closed up the exploits used for the iOS 9 jailbreak.
Since then, we haven’t seen a new jailbreak, and users have had to go through iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2 without a jailbreak. The good news is, that could be changing sooner or later, as an iOS 9.2 jailbreak has been rumored to released soon.
In fact, one individual jailbreaker has claimed he has a jailbreak available. The iOS 9.2.1 update itself isn’t even available yet, as it’s still in its beta stages, but Luca Todesco, who goes by @qwertyoruiop on Twitter has teased a screenshot of Cydia running on the iOS 9.2.1 beta on his iPhone 6.
The bad news is that Todesco says that he won’t release it and will instead leave that up to jailbreak teams like TaiG and Pangu.
However, this news does show us that an iOS 9.2 jailbreak is possible, and if an individual has successfully done it, then it’s likely that TaiG or Pangu have done it as well.
The thing is that we likely won’t see a new jailbreak release until iOS 9.2.1 releases, because if an iOS 9.2 jailbreak releases before the iOS 9.2.1 update arrives, it’s entirely possible for Apple to quickly patch up the exploits before they release iOS 9.2.1.
As far as when iOS 9.2.1 will release is up in the air, but it’s highly likely that we’ll see it this month at some point. After iOS 9.2.1 releases, then it’s highly likely that we’ll finally see an iOS 9.2 jailbreak, but we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
