Hacker jailbreaks Apple’s latest operating system before release

iPhone 5S (Karlis Dambrans_Flikr)

Apple is all set to release its iOS 9 soon. However, the well known iOS hacker, iH8snow, has once again stolen the thunder. The hacker has released a new YouTube video that clearly shows the first untethered jailbreak for iOS 9, as reported by 9to5.

For a tethered jailbreak, an iPhone or iPad needs to be plugged into a Mac or PC when it’s booted. A boot without tethering won’t enter a jailbroken state. An untethered jailbreak, however, doesn’t have that constraint; it’s always jailbroken (even after a reboot).

Calling the jailbreak “dirty and hacky,” iH8snow says it is a “proper jailbreak,” which also works on the iOS 9.1 beta.

The hacker, however, does not have any plans to release the software, meaning that users who might be expecting to get their tweaks up and running on the latest operating system should stay with iOS 8.4 as of now.

The report further says that as the video clearly demonstrates that an untethered iOS 9 jailbreak could be developed, any other developer could create and release the same at some point after the release.
