iOS 9.3.2 Jailbreak Status

As most iPhone, iPad and iPod owners already know iOS 9.3.2 has been around for some time now. For some it has been a bug fixing revelation however, for many others the bugs it was meant to fix have been replaced by other more serious issues, which I covered a week or two back!

iOS 9.3.2  Jailbreak Status

Jail breaking iOS 9.3.2

If you’ve been waiting and waiting for some good news on the Jail-breaking front, then I’m sorry to say that nothing has really changed over the past few weeks. It seems that long gone are the days when Apple would release an update and a teams of hungry coders would go to work and whip up what seemed like a jailbreak in a flash!

Now before you hold your head in your hands, it’s not all doom and gloom, the likes of Pangu and TaiG still have thriving and active community’s, yes they move along at a much slower pace than they once did. But at-least they’re still there constantly looking for a jail break solution for use by the public.

Here’s what looks like a working iOS 9.3.2 Jailbreak posted by Luca Tedesco, this time he’s demonstrating the JailbreakMe-style browser-based jailbreak. And once again he is unwilling to share it with the jailbreak community.

iOS Fixes and Tweaks

At this point all I’m going to say is that, iOS 9.3.2 was / is not meant to be anything revolutionary. In fact it was only ever meant to be a fix, like I stated earlier. It was nothing more than a band-aid to cover the cracks of some seriously poor coding, done by someone on the iOS team! Never the less iOS 9.3.2 is still and update and with any update comes the question about jail breaking, “is there a jail break available for it?”

And the answer to that question is…. a NO! Seriously nothing has changed in the weeks since its launch and the destruction it caused many an iOS user. As it stands there are no jailbreak solutions for ios 9.3.2, 9.3.1 or 9.3 firmwares. Of course there are those who swan around the internet claiming that they have a working jailbreak for these versions of iOS, but not one of them have offered to share it with others.

My Advice

With Apple shutting down older versions of iOS quicker than it ever has before, with 9.3 being the latest iOS version that Apple is no longer digitally signing off on. iOS 9.3.1 is the oldest version of the operating system that you can currently roll back to if you’ve been unlucky and had the issues people have been talking about with iOS 9.3.2.

So with all the above in mind, you should probably try and stick to the lowest firmware version possible, but only if it is considered to be secure. For example iOS 9.3 has the universal links bug issue, so if you need to upgrade do so, but only go as far as iOS 9.3.1.
