Luca Todesco, the Italian exploit developer has finally launched the much-anticipated iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak. He had tipped a few times in the beginning of this week regarding the jailbreak and it was almost confirmed when he tweeted about finding a vulnerability in the iOS 8.4.1.
Through a tweet, Todesco explained: "want to Jailbreak? 2 options: wait for me to finish it, or DIY. Installed toctou + dyld bug = sb escape. Dyld bug + e_d_t_o_c = untether."
He has also released the dyld bug which can be downloaded from here .
Explaining the toctou, he further wrote: "installd toctou: if in an ipa file Info.plist is a symlink pointing to /var/mobile/Media/something, you can bypass checks on CFBundleExecutables (akin to evasi0n). This allows you to run a binary anywhere in the FS. Combined with the bug above, this allows for sandbox escape.
edtoc = enabledylibstooverridecache"

The explained solution is a bit complex and might be little difficult to follow for wannabes, hence we leave the decision up to you whether you want to wait for the final iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak release or follow the above-mentioned process.
If you have already upgraded your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad downgrade the device from iOS 9 / iOS 9.0.1 / iOS 9.0.2 to iOS 8.4.1 and wait patiently.
If you're not aware of the downgrade process, here is a detailed step by step tutorial for you.

The Italian jailbreaker has also tweeted: "Another kernel bug I have has been killed in 10.10.1/ iOS 9.0.1. It was a pretty obvious one, not too surprised." This suggests he might have started working with the latest iOS version to find out a solution.

If rumours are to be believed, the other two famous jailbreak communities, TaiG and Pangu, have also started working on iOS 9.1 and might directly come up with iOS 9.1 jailbreak solution once Apple launches the official update. The iOS 9.1 update is expected to be launched later this year with Apple's iPad Pro.
