Activator For Jailbroken Devices Has Received A Massive Update For iOS 9 And iPhone 6s

A little over a month back, Activator for iOS 9 was released and made available for everyone to download. But slowly and gradually, Ryan Petrich, the man behind the famed tweak itself, had been working in the background to add a bunch of great new features and better support for Cupertino's latest flagship handset, the iPhone 6s, as well as iOS 9. Toady, Petrich has seen it fit to release a massive update which adds a ton of new features for both iOS 9 and iPhone 6s.

To put things into perspective how massive this update is compared to the last one, here's the complete changelog for the latest Activator 1.9.7 update:
