iOS 9 Jailbreak: Apple Patched A Vulnerability Found By Pangu Team, TaiG

Sep 18, 2015

The jailbreak game is truly turning into a cat and mouse one as Apple has patched another vulnerability in iOS 9 and has credited TaiG and Pangu Team for it.

With the release of iOS 8.4.1, Apple patched a number of vulnerabilities that were needed to make the TaiG jailbreak work. In short, Apple laid to rest all the efforts put forward by the TaiG and Pangu Team in one fell swoop with the release of iOS 8.4.1. A few days back, we stumbled across a video by iH8sn0w showing off an iOS 9 jailbreak, raising our hopes high for a potential liberating solution in the days / weeks / months to come. But today, in a knowledge based article by Apple, it has come to our attention that the Cupertino tech giant has patched a vulnerability in iOS 9, and has credited the Pangu Team and TaiG both.


Available for: iPhone 4s and later, iPod touch (5th generation) and later, iPad 2 and later

Impact: An application may be able to bypass code signing

Description: An issue existed with validation of the code signature of executables. This issue was addressed through improved bounds checking.


CVE-2015-5839 : @PanguTeam, TaiG Jailbreak Team

It’s worth mentioning here that iH8sn0w does not plan to release an iOS 9 jailbreak just yet, and we can only hope for the Pangu Team and TaiG to work their magic and recreate iH8sn0w’s work. Keeping that notion under the light – when should we expect the jailbreak to be released? We can’t say anything at this point as not much information is available. But we have our hopes high, and we’re certain that we will hear good news in the days and weeks to come, so stay tuned for that.

If you’re currently sitting on iOS 8.4 and are jailbroken as well, then we recommend that you steer clear of any update until further notice. Once you update to iOS 9, there’s no going back, and you’ll lose your jailbreak for good, as iOS 9 is currently not jailbreakable.

Sitting on top of iOS 8.4 or below and haven’t jailbroken your device yet?

If you’re a Windows user, then check out our guide posted here for complete details. Alternatively, if TaiG is not your cup of tea then you can try its alternative PP to achieve the same thing. You can follow our complete guide posted here on how to use the PP jailbreak tool to liberate iOS 8.4.

We’ll keep you posted for more updates, so stay tuned to our coverage.
