Apple iOS users have been eagerly waiting for a jailbreak to be rolled out for iOS 9 for a long time now. Just in the recent past it was reported that an Italian hacker by the name of Luca Todesco has managed to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3.
However, he stated that he does not want to release the jailbreak for public use. To prove his claim, he posted a picture of his iPod 7 Touch running the Cydia store. It is known that Cydia is the official app store for jailbroken iOS.
Though he will not be releasing the jailbreak for the public, it is being assumed that he might decide to share the exploits with other hacking teams like Pangu and TaiG. The exploits will come to an aid to Pangu and Taig, who have been trying to jailbreak iOS 9.3.2 for a considerable period of time.
A particular team by the name of GSMagic had previously claimed that they would release a jailbreaking tool for iOS 9.3.2 on June 10. The team is quite new and unknown to most and thus people were skeptical about their claim.
GSMagic was quite active on social media, providing people with insights as to how the upcoming tool would function. Many experts labelled them as a group of pranksters and rightly so because as can be seen that the deadline set by the team has already passed and there is still no sign of a working jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2.
After June 10, the Twitter handle of the group was made private. Followers were unable to view their account without the permission of the group. Prior to that date, the team was quite forthcoming with their ideas regarding the jailbreak.
They made arrogant claims that they will roll out the jailbreak on June 10. They were even seen getting involved in arguments with other renowned jailbreaking teams.
The team eventually posted that they did not manage to jailbreak iOS 9.3.2 as claimed and thus they were unable to roll out the tool on June 10. Following this, it was also posted that the account was no longer being handled by them.
Followers were also warned that virus might be spread through their account. However, since they were not controlling the account, they will not be responsible for the damages, if any,caused by virus infection.
People have been criticizing the group a lot in recent days and it seems as if that the team never even tried to jailbreak the iOS. Instead, they were just making false claims and hoping that it would force the likes of Luca Todesco and other hackers to roll out a working jailbreaking tool soon.
A renowned website reports that a working jailbreak for iOS 9 might be released by Pangu on July 1. Some previous reports suggested that the tool will be rolled out after Apple unveils the iOS 10 at the WWDC 2016.
Pangu had reportedly released an unofficial version of the upcoming jailbreak on their site. The team also had stated that the security problems that are being faced by iOS 9.3.2 users will be fixed by the jailbreak.
It was also reported that the hacking teams might abstain from releasing the jailbreak at the moment.
Apparently, they are waiting for Apple to roll out the final version of the iOS 9.3. Apple has been constantly releasing updates for iOS 9.3 which has been fixing exploits that could be used by hackers to jailbreak it.
Needless to say, it is making the job quite difficult for the hackers. Apple had previously released iOS 9.3.1 and iOS 9.3.2. Reports state that another beta- iOS 9.3.3 is also headed towards users.
