Good News for Jailbreakers!
Just within 24 Hours after the launch of iOS 9 at Apple's Annual Event, a well-known iOS hacker has managed to untether jailbreak iOS 9. That's quite impressive.
Believe it, iOS 9 has been Jailbroken!
A reputed hacker 'iH8sn0w', who previously developed the popular jailbreak tools like Sn0wbreeze and P0sixspwn, published a new YouTube video last night, demonstrating the first untethered jailbreak for the yet-unreleased iOS 9.
Apple plans to publicly release its latest iOS 9 software update for all supported devices on 16th September while the company has already made the Gold Master seed of the software available to developers.
Untethered Jailbreak for iOS 9
iH8sn0w has jailbroken his iPhone 5 running the iOS 9 GM seed.
The jailbreak is an untethered – a jailbreak where your devices don't require any reboot every time it connects to an external device capable of executing commands on the device.
You can watch the full jailbreak video below. The video demonstrates the iOS 9 jailbreak, including Verbose booting, code injection, custom boot logos, and Cydia.
iH8sn0w claimed that his method also works with the iOS 9.1 beta, though it is not shown in the video.
Both iOS 9 Gold Master (Build 13a340) and iOS 9.1 beta 1 (Build 13B5110e) versions can be downloaded from Apple's Developer Center.
iH8sn0w says he does not have any plans to release his Jailbreak software, but since the iOS 9 can be jailbroken, it is possible for other developers, like Pangu and TaiG team, to build and release an untethered iOS 9 jailbreak after the release.
