iOS 9 jailbreak teaser

TaiG CEO Xie Lei is feeling pretty bullish about the possibility of jailbreaking iOS 9, as evident by a comment posted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. In his comments, which appear to be appended on another post, similar to a quoted retweet on Twitter, Mr. Lei alludes to the future of TaiG’s ambitions.

Xie Lie TaiG CEO iOS 9 Jailbreak

The post is roughly translated: iOS9 see! We look forward to release fourth escape!

Fourth escape = fourth jailbreak, i.e the iOS 9 jailbreak. Like I said, the translation is a little rough, but that’s the meaning in the original language.

Here is the original Chinese text for those of you who read Chinese: iOS9见!期待我们发布的第四次越狱!

You can read the full post here.

If TaiG’s CEO feels confident enough that he can openly state how much he’s looking forward to releasing an iOS 9 jailbreak, then there’s probably more to the story. Obviously, last month’s big news about rootless security raised some fears about the future of jailbreaking, but those fears seem to be largely unfounded.

Only time will tell if we see an actual iOS 9 jailbreak release, but I certainly feel better about it with talented teams like TaiG around.

What about you?

    I’m very confident there will be an ios9 JB. If JB’ing is dead ….android here i come (unfortunately lol) 🙂

      Like I’ve mentioned before in previous blogs, you should never switch devices just for jailbreak/rooting benefits. There’s so much more to do with the devices besides hack them.

      • Completely agree although in my case I’d never consider switching platforms anyway. I’m simply far too invested in the Apple ecosystem. I own so many apps that I’d have to buy again on other platforms (assuming they exist for other platforms)…

      • Antzboogie

        Jailbreaking has freed my iPhone of all these restrictions put on a device i paid a lot of money for. Its mine and should come Unlocked and Jailbroken straight out of the box!!!!!

      • While I agree with you my point was stock iOS for many people (me including) offers a lot more now that a couple of years ago would have been unimaginable. Should it come with root access and an unlocked boot loader? Absolutely but I’d never consider switching platforms for this reason alone…

      • iPhoneWINS

        iPhone without jailbreak is totally useless

      • Joshua The-Legend Wiebe

        Oh, you’re totally wrong. Before jailbreaking, the iPhone was so advanced, so many features, huge improvements compared to the other phones on the market. Jailbreaking just gives it DLC, add-ons and so fourth, you can do 1000+ things with an iPhone without jailbreaking. So it’s not useless.

      • Hotrod

        Not totally useless but for power users like ourselves definitely not worth having

      • Antzboogie

        I agree man for real without it its too restricted.

      • mickey

        to work a certain way we are accustomed to. Personally I have jail broken since ios3 and have had some of the same features back then that are finally in iOS now. Using stock iOS isn’t as bad as it used to be but I still feel like my device is lacking whenever it’s stuck without a jailbreak. The fact that apple incorporates many of our favorite tweaks every version says that we were right all along. It works the same for my android phone. I don’t necessarily need to root it since android is more flexible out of the box, but I sure always feel the need to customize it. And that’s simply what a jailbreak provides: customization.

      • Arjon Bujupi

        Actually you can’t do much with an unjailbroken device. Its useless. ios + jailbreak > android without root but stock ios <<<<< android.

      • Antzboogie

        Strongly disagree Im not going to let any company control my smartphone and tell me what I can and cant do with it. Its a free country here in the United States of America anyway and so should our devices be free. Come unlocked and everything.

    iOS8 is not yet completed.. Now talking about iOS 9? Okay. I think i feel good about it but they should learn not to be so untidy with Jailbreak tools and of-course stop segregation with Mac.

    • iPhoneWINS

      yeah it really sucks that they don’t mac mac version while they are jailbreaking apple

  • Shaw

    Just go forward… ignore the warning

    • Mukund Bhatla

      You sir are awesome, thanks for the advice, just updated, no issues so far

  • A better translation: “See you in iOS 9! We look forward to release our fourth jailbreak!”

  • Nirvana

    Man, these Chinese are good!

  • Sohail Wahab

    You guys are gonna be surprised to try Auxo 3 on iOS 8.3

    • Sohail Wahab

      It’s way responsive than it was in the older iOS 8 versions

    • I tried it but the multi-center not work and quick switcher little bit glitch-y. no icons showed 🙁

  • Gulam

    May be: Fourth escape = fourth jailbreak, i.e the iOS 8.4 jailbreak

    • pegger1

      No, they’re referencing iOS9

    • Raul Flores

      Yes their fourth jailbreak…8.4 is the third, And they’re referencing iOS9. So… yeap.

  • HamptonWalley

    I hope IOS 9 will close jailbreaking for once and for all.

    • MrJohnBlaze

      I Wish your mom would close her legs once and for all.

      • iPhoneWINS

        hahahahahahahhahahahahahahhhahahahah GOTEEM!!!!!!!

      • Kaptivator

        Well, damn! Like forever?

    • Hotrod

      This has to be the most ignorant comment I have ever read on this forum, dude just don’t jailbreak if you don’t like it that much, people on this forum usually love jailbreaking because they want the full potential of their phone and not just what Apple allows. Stock iPhones are boring and who in the hell wants to be like everyone else? Wishing it was over for everyone else is simply hateful.. I guess at the end of the day you’re entitled to your opinion, but keep in mind the opinion of a man represents that man… and I find your opinion weak

    • Endriu Andrei

      Tim Cook is that you ? :))

  • pauleebe

    Really hope that 8.4 GM/Final is still exploitable.

    Although 9.0 B2 has been really stable, nothing beats a JB.

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      I want Apple Music extra long trial extender!

  • iPhoneWINS

    I will wait for IOS9…

  • imtough

    I jailbreak simply for Sprintomize, Safari Downloader+, TetherMe, MovieBox, LinkTunes and IntelliscreenX. Always have, always will, thus I am pulling for these guys with iOS9.

  • :D

    A bit soon to be so confident, isn’t it? I think he’s just rooting for some publicity.

  • ECabrera.

    TaiG I just want to say Thank you! I still love my iPhone b-cuz of you guys. Thanks again for the hardwork! Looking forward for the iOS 9 JB.

  • White Michael Jackson

    Taig has a CEO?

  • Debb Y.

    I use both IOS and Android, am rooted on Android and hoping for the IOS 9 JB :]

  • Debb Y.

    The only reason I use both systems is Apple refuses to make it possible to use memory cards. I am a photographer and as much as I like my IOS devices I refuse to pay through the nose for extra storage space I can get with an sd card. That is why I run both.

  • Prince Amadi

    It’s not saying “Escape”, it’s saying Evasion (which I guess could mean escape). “iOS 9 see! We look forward to release the fourth Evasion (jailbreak).”

  • Harag Robert

    If you have trouble unlocking your AT&T stuff, get have looking at att–iphoneunlocking, I’ve unlocked several telephones with it, and we have unloked 3 of my devices already
