Why is 9.3.5 Untethered Jailbreak important?
Fried Apple Team’s jailbreak is based on Pegasus exploit. This jailbreak will likely support only 64-bit devices. No official list has been declared yet by the group.
If Fried Apple Team releases this jailbreak, all iOS 9 devices will be life cycle jailbroken. This means all devices will be jailbreak-able on any iOS 9 firmware version.
However, here’s the catch. If Apple releases another security update, that is, iOS 9.3.6, this tool will be rendered useless.
Save your SHSH blobs so you can use Trevor’s upcoming iOS 9 downgrade tool.
Which Firmware versions will be Compatible with this Jailbreak?
Here’s the list of all compatible firmware versions.
- iOS 8.4.1
- iOS 9.2.1
- iOS 9.3
- iOS 9.3.1
- iOS 9.3.2
- iOS 9.3.3
- iOS 9.3.4
- iOS 9.3.5
Fired Apple Team are newcomers on the jailbreak scene. They came out of nowhere and launched a jailbreak tool for iOS 8.4.1.
They worked alongside Luca Todesco on this tool. Although it is usable, this tool was never fully completed.
I have a feeling this jailbreak would never be released. It is highly likely that the group just wanted to demonstrate the jailbreak at the BlackHat conference and not release it.
