iOS 9.2.1 Jailbreak Could Become A Reality Soon, So Make Sure You Perform These Steps Beforehand

We've mentioned this time and time again that jailbreaking is a cat and mouse game between Apple and developers, where the Cupertino giant works ruthlessly in the background to make sure that the necessary security holes are plugged, disallowing all root access to an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Take the case of iOS 9.x for example, which, once considered 'rootless,' was ultimately jailbroken in a swift manner thanks to the work of the Pangu Team, but again, Apple did its thing and patched the jailbreak altogether with the release of iOS 9.1 firmware update. Thankfully though, it seems as though iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak could be with us soon, thanks to the work of a developer named Luca Tedesco. And to add fuel to an already lit fire, a Pangu Team member suggests upgrading our devices to iOS 9.2.1, hinting at an imminent release.

If you're not jailbroken currently and are sitting on a firmware version that cannot be jailbroken other than iOS 9.2.1, then here's what you should do immediately.

Backup Everything

Take an iCloud or iTunes backup of everything that's on your device currently. You do not want to lose any of your data under any circumstance in case a jailbreak drops. After all, anything can happen during the process and you would want to be as safe as possible.

Clean Restore To iOS 9.2.1 Using iTunes

Usually jailbreak tools don't play nice with firmware updates that have been installed over the air (OTA) therefore it's highly recommended that you do a clean install using iTunes to ensure that you're ready beforehand.

Simply follow our complete guide posted here on how to do just that:

Do Not Update Any Further

iOS 9.3 beta is well on its way to see the final release within a month's time, and it's highly likely that Apple will make the bold move and patch the jailbreak altogether even before release. Hence, if iOS 9.3 final is released way before the iOS 9.2.1 jailbreak itself, then we highly recommend that you stay away from the update at all costs. Once you upgrade, then there's no going back.
