Jailbreakers, the efficient iOS hackers, might be feeling pumped up after Zerodium, the security company, threw a challenge with a huge prize money of $3 million called 'The Million Dollar Bug Bounty' to those who will bring the jailbreak solution first.
Surprisingly, there is no confirmed news available regarding the iOS 9 jailbreak update, though tons of rumours are doing the rounds on Internet.
Sn0wbreeze and P0sixspwn famed hacker iH8sn0w, who had posted a video on YouTube showing an iPhone 6 Plus running on jailbroken edition of iOS 9.1 beta, is also till tight-lipped till now.
This teases that Apple might have fixed the exploit he used with its latest update iOS 9.0.1. More surprisingly, he has not claimed the 'Million Dollar Big Bounty' as well, which confirms the wild guess.
However, the only ray of hope for the jailbroken iPhone and iPad users came from an Italian exploit developer Luca Todesco's tweet which reads: "If I have enough confidence in said bugs being patched, I'll drop 8.4.1 jailbreak soon-ish." If his words are to be believed, it might come as good news for the users who are still running iOS 8.4.1 on their iPhones and waiting for the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak to come.

Just in case you're not aware, if you have upgraded your device to iOS 9.0 or iOS 9.0.1, you have to wait for the iOS 9 jailbreak to appear or can downgrade your device to iOS 8.4.1, which is still possible until Apple closes the downgrading process.
Gottabemobile reports, jailbreakers might wait till November to release the iOS 9 update until Apple launches the iPad Pro, which is purported to run on iOS 9.1.
