The iOS 8 untethered jailbreak was released 3 months ago, after a very long wait. When it comes to jailbreak, users always have to wait for a considerable amount of time before they can get full root access on their iOS devices. The iOS 9 beta has been around for the past month now, and so far people have liked it in general. The 9th September Apple event heralded the arrival of iPad Pro, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Of course, this means that as soon as these gadgets make it to Apple’s stores, iOS 9 will shed its beta tag as well. The question that is sure to pop up into the minds of Cydia users is about the status of iOS 9 untethered jailbreak.
For those who think they will be able to jailbreak their new iPhone 6s the day they purchase it, the news isn’t too good. The usual flow of things normally leads to a tethered jailbreak of iOS first. This somewhat semi-permanent jailbreak only lasts for as long as you keep your device powered on. The moment it is rebooted, the jailbreak is lost. The ideal solution would be to have an iOS 9 untethered jailbreak. If you go by past record, however, the full jailbreak might not become available before Christmas.
It’s not all doom and gloom though. Things might be quicker than they have previously been. Popular iOS jailbreak developer iH8sn0w has released a video showing an untethered iOS 9 jailbreak. As per the developer, the jailbreak is not refined enough to be released to the public. This roughly translates to that the iOS 9 untethered jailbreak is likely to be released sooner than its predecessors, but by some source other than iH8sn0w.
The jailbreak, when it does become public, is likely to be tethered, though the video released by the current solution’s developer clearly shows him restarting a jailbroken iOS 9 device without losing root access.
All in all, the fact that iOS 9 untethered jailbreak is likely to arrive soon is sure to enthuse a lot of Cydia fans who usually hold out before updating to all latest iOS versions. Head to the link provided below to see iH8sn0w’s fantastic effort in real-life action.
