Hacker Teases iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak; But It May Not Be For You

Updated on

Apple released the iOS 9.3.4 a few days ago to patch a loophole in the iOS 9.3.3 that Team Pangu had exploited to jailbreak the system. The iPhone maker is making it increasingly difficult for the jailbreaking community to jailbreak the iOS. Hacking teams like Pangu and TaiG worked for months before Pangu tasted success with the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Apple has fixed that. It doesn’t mean the new iOS 9.3.4 is un-jailbreakable.

Todesco unlikely to release iOS 9.3.4 to public

An iOS hacker named Luca Todesco has managed to jailbreak the iOS 9.3.4 on the iPhone 6S. Todesco teased it on Twitter. However, the jailbreak is probably never going to be released to the public. Luca Todesco has shared the evidence of his jailbreaks in the past, but he has never brought them to the public. He is currently at the DefCon conference where hackers and security experts from around the world gather.

It does show that the iOS 9.3.4 is jailbreackable. It’s only a matter of time before talented jailbreakers find the loopholes and come up with a new tool for the latest version of the iOS. Folks at Pangu and TaiG must be already working on it. You can’t say for sure whether there will be an iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak. So, if you want to jailbreak, do not upgrade your device to the iOS 9.3.4.

You can still downgrade to iOS 9.3.3

If you have already upgraded to iOS 9.3.4, here’s how to downgrade to the iOS 9.3.3 and retain your jailbreak. Do it while you still can. It won’t be long before Apple stops signing the iOS 9.3.3 firmware version. The iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak released by Pangu a few weeks ago is semi-untethered and works only with 64-bit devices. Pangu has said that 32-bit support and untethered tool are not coming to the iOS 9.3.3.

Apple is set to release the iOS 10 to the public next month along with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
