iOS 9.1 jailbreak rumors: jailbreak for the latest iOS build tipped to roll out 2016; no more opportunity to downgrade from 9.1 to 9.0.2

(Apple)Apple iOS 9.0.2

Apple fans, especially the iOS jailbreakers, are now anxiously waiting for the latest jailbreak for the new operating system platform, iOS 9.1. Unfortunately though, there are still no words yet coming from the two leading iPhone OS hackers, Pangu and TaiG, regarding the release date for iOS 9.1 jailbreak. However, rumor reports have emerged claiming that the new build might become available sometime 2016.

According to the report from Christian Today, there's a rumor circulating around the web claiming that the iOS 9.1 jailbreak may have a chance to be released sometime 2016. One rumor points out a much later release, before the end of 2016—which is actually pretty farfetched—while the other one, an early 2016 roll out is a bit likely to happen.

If the rumors turn out to be accurate, then iOS jailbreak fans will have to wait a bit longer before they can download the jailbroken version.

Meanwhile, the only way they can use a jailbroken version of the iOS is to downgrade their 9.1 version to the previous build, the 9.0.2. Sadly, Apple has recently stopped the availability for the downgrade. Meaning, fans that have downloaded the 9.1 version will have to stick with it, as stated on the update report from Neurogadget.

Furthermore, in terms of the iOS 9.1 jailbreak development, Neurogadget has reported that Apple admits that the 9.1 build has two vulnerability patches in it and these two vulnerable points were used by Pangu in jailbreaking the OS.

With that said, the team, as well as OS jailbreaking group TaiG, will have to find another vulnerable points for them to crack the latest build.

So for now, it's highly advised for the jailbreak fans to wait for further announcements coming from Pangu and TaiG and take the release date rumors with a tiny pinch of salt for the time being.
