Jailbreak iOS 9.3 is Still Viable While Apple Patched Vulnerabilities

Yesterday we reported that Apple has fixed jailbreak vulnerabilities in the iOS 9.3 beta 5, this is undoubtedly a heavy blow for the jailbreak community, especially those who have been waiting to jailbreak iOS 9.3.

Early in January, the developer Luca Todesco had been released a video to demonstrate some tweaks and Cydia running on the iOS 9.3 beta 1, but it is uncertain whether the patched jailbreak vulnerabilities consistent with Todesco used.

So today this question is solved, Todesco just confirmed that his jailbreak is still working on iOS 9.3 beta 5 while responding to Stefan Essar aka i0n1c, security researcher and hacker.

@i0n1c nothing i noticed so far, my code worked 1:1.

However, It should be noted that Todesco previously made it clear that he has no intention of releasing the jailbreak and it does not seem like that’s going to change anytime soon. It is still good to know that iOS 9.3 can still be jailbroken and hopefully, Pangu or the TaiG jailbreak teams can figure out how to jailbreak iOS 9.3 and release it to the public.

Currently the latest jailbreak tool supports iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2, while the two major teams TaiG and Pangu jailbreak not yet made any statement on the iOS 9.3 jailbreak, and no one knows whether they plan to release a new jailbreak tool in the future. But at least we already know jailbreak iOS 9.3 is still feasible.
