Here’s How To Get New iOS 9.1 Emojis On iOS 9.0.2
Apple updated its iOS firmware to version 9.1 a few days back. Even though it came packed with abundant emojis and bug fixes, the update also patched vulnerabilities responsible for the Pangu 9 jailbreak. However, not everyone of us want to lose the jailbreak status followed by a little update.
If you loved the newly added emojis that came packed with iOS 9.1, but are too afraid to lose your jailbreak status, there is a way you can get them easily. Since, your device is jailbreaked, you have already done half of the job. Thankfully, all you have to do is make use of this little tweak and you will be set to own the new iOS 9.1 emojis on iOS 9.0.2.
So let's get down and see what you have to do to own iOS 9.1 emojis on iOS 9.0.2.
Install iOS 9.1 Emojis On iOS 9.0.2 Running Device
One important factor that users should consider is the current state of the tweak. Since it is partially working for now, it does not include the entire skin tones and emojis of iOS 9.1. However, the most important ones like a burrito, taco and the infamous middle finger is included.
The tweak is yet running some issues and a question mark symbol can be seen while in the first an third party apps. This is an identified bug which will be fixed in the near future. However, if you are still interested in giving this tweak a try, it's called the BytaFont 2.
To install BytaFont 2 on your iOS 9.0.2 running device, download and install it from ModMyi repo. Once it is installed, further download and install ''Emoji iOS 9.1 Backup (D)'' from the same ModMyi repo. Users are then required to add this repo in Cydia: http://poomsmart.github.io/repo. Now install ''Emoji83+''. Make sure you don't download ''Emoji83 [BETA]. Once you have installed the above mentioned emoji pack, launch the BytaFont 2 on your iOS 9.0.2 running device and tap on Swap Mode. Now, by selecting Emoji > EmOji_iOS 9.1, you will be prompted with the message ''Are you sure you want to proceed? If you proceed, your device will respring.'' Tap 'Yes' and that is it.
Even though the problem persists, you will be able to see iOS 9.1 emojis on your iOS 9.0.2 running device. The bug restraing users from using iOS 9.2 emojis in some apps will soon be fixed via an update for the Emoji83+.
This is it for now, folks. If you tried this tweak, let us know in the comments how you liked it.
