Farewell Pangu & TaiG; Italian Hacker Jailbreaks iOS 9.2.1

By  | 

Looks like our usual suspects – Pangu and TaiG will have their latest contender, since they’ve been idle for quite some time. And that’s because this hacker has proved that it’s possible to jailbreak the iOS 9.2.1.

And perhaps we should thank Luca Todesco (an Italian developer, who also goes by @qwertoruiop) for realizing it recently (or more like hacking it); well, better late than never. As you can see from the screenshot he posted below, this puts rumours of “jailbreaking the iOS a mission impossible” to rest, since it has been quite talked-about in the rumour mill as of late. Though it’s worth noting that jailbreaking iOS 9.2 was much harder than its predecessor, the iOS 9.1, therefore, Todesco warns users of current iOS 9.1 to skip to the latest update, if possible.


Since there is no available jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.1 or later, there’s still the likelihood for either Pangu or TaiG to release a complete, untethered tool for iOS 9.2.1 after it goes public. So, let’s just be hopeful that we’ll be getting it soon.
