The final build of iOS 9.3.3 is out, technically signaling the death of the iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak. Just the same, Pangu still has two chances to prove its worth by coming out with a jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3 and iOS 10.
Despite unveiling a slew of iOS jailbreaks at MOSEC 2016, Pangu has not come out with a full jailbreak that iPhone or iPad users can try out. Instead, there is a ‘semi-tethered’ tool that Apple users can try out though it is the Chinese version.
In what could be a form to save face, Pangu has unraveled a tool that can jailbreak iOS 9.2 to 9.3.3 versions. The problem is that unlike traditional untethered jailbreaks, this one falls in the middle.
For those unaware, full jailbreaks like the iOS 9.3.1 were untethered. This means that jailbreaking Apple devices once works without hitch. Tethered jailbreaks require users to re-apply the patch when the device is rebooted.
As far as the ‘semi-tethered’ jailbreak is concerned, users will don’t have to hook up their device to the PC, but need to re-enable the jailbreak app each time they are restarted, CNet reported.
Do you understand Chinese?
The other thing is that the Pangu tool is in Chinese. An English version is expected though there is no exact date on when it may come out. Do take note as well that no all Cydia apps are expected to work smoothly with the said jailbreak. Also, the crack will not work on the iPad Pro 9.7 and iPod Touch 6.
Taking it positively, the good thing about the iOS Jailbreak is that it is easy to use. It is elementary and something that anyone can apply if they choose.
Full iOS Jailbreak Still A Mystery
The recent iOS jailbreak from Pangu is technically a reprieve but the fact is many want the full working iOS 9.3.3 or iOS 10 jailbreak in the open. Black Hat USA 2016 takes place next week with some hoping for some announcement.
Pangu will be holding a talk, but there is a growing belief that it will not be tied up to any form of iOS jailbreak. That was before Apple jumped the gun and released the final version of iOS 9.3.3.
