Jailbreaking communities such as Pangu and TaiG are constantly looking for flaws in iOS mobile software to exploit and deliver a jailbreak to the interested users. Many people like to tweak their iPhones and iPads beyond Apple's say-so. But, jaibreakers have found the recent software releases pretty hard to crack. Shortly after Pangu managed to release the iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak for iPhones, Apple rolled out updated iOS 9.1 to close the loophole.

The users, who managed to jailbreak their iPhones and iPads with the most recent Pangu tool, cannot upgrade further as the Jailbreaking communities are yet to exploit any iOS 9.1 vulnerability. This indicates the jailbreak teams might be looking at iOS 9.2 instead.

Apple is expected to rollout iOS 9.2 betas soon, giving jailbreak teams a fresh start in finding new exploits in the firmware. But, the users needn't hold their breath for this one as it may take longer. Since the jailbreak developers have iOS 9.1 software in hand, they can only try to find a way to exploit the current firmware. Even if Apple starts seeding iOS 9.2 beta, jailbreak for the unreleased firmware will not be out until the final build is rolled out possibly next month.

According to iOS 9 Cydia, sources suggest an iOS 9.2 jailbreak is not impossible but may take time to find new loopholes in the software.

If you wish to keep your iPhone jailbreak active, it is recommended you stick to iOS 9.0.2 for now.

Currently, there is no word from profound jailbreak communities such as Pangu, TaiG and K33n (Keen) about the iOS 9.1 or iOS 9.2 jailbreak. But, considering Pangu managed to rollout a stable iOS 9-iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak for the users, the very team will likely be the first to make its next move on iOS 9.2.

TaiG has also been an active participant in the iOS jailbreaks, but remained dormant after iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 jailbreaks. But, the community expressed confidence in iOS 9 jailbreak, so we can expect TaiG to come out of its shell for the next jailbreak.

For now, jailbreakers' best weapon is to wait patiently while these teams work on the next software upgrade for us. We'll be sure to bring you a detailed guide of how to download and install new iOS jailbreak when available.
