iOS 8 dead

Today’s brisk activity has come to an end with the closure of the iOS 8.4.1 and iOS 9.0 signing window. This means that users can no longer upgrade or downgrade to iOS 8.4.1 or iOS 9.

This is big news, because an iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak has been rumored to be in the works. If you didn’t heed our advice about updating or downgrading to iOS 8.4.1, then it’s too late to do so now.

As we always state, it’s a good idea to keep tabs on IPSW.me for the latest info on firmware signing windows. For example, check IPSW.me/9.0.1 to keep an eye on the iOS 9.0.1 window.

What we can say for sure is that the last vestige of iOS 8 is now a thing of the past. On to iOS 9!

    • Tylor Jackson

      True. yesterday I decided back to iOS 8.4.1 I still on iOS 8.4.1 now.. 😮

  • czarczarczar

    Yes!, iOS 9 jailbreak please come soon !

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      I know idiots are wasting their times on an OS that was already jail broken!

  • Bugs Bunnay

    This is not really big news Mr. Benjamin. A jailbreak for 8.4.1 is a waste and 9.0 is not any better with the alleged lag issues. Now on 9.1 I wouldn’t mind.

  • pauleebe

    9.1 is probably about a month away, so hopefully if there is any jailbreak in hiding, we see it then.

    Jeff, first sentence “come to a end” should be “come to an end”. Thanks for this info though, definitely useful as I have stayed away from iOS 9 knowing that 8.4.1 will most likely get a JB first.

    • Thanks! Fixed.

      Grammar Nazis are the absolute worst.

  • Lordrootman

    I know definitely mine is Samsung that’s why I’m having a lot of issues

  • Ankit

    ipsw still showing green color on 8.4.1

    • rubeN

      yep, thats weird

  • besrate hogsa

    just updated to ios 9.0.2 hopefully we will see a jailbreak next month

  • andyna

    Knowing a bug to jailbreak ios 8.4.1 is something, and jailbreaking ios9 is another thing. good thing they’re trying to JB 8.4.1 cause some of us choose not to update to iOS9 ! not all people have iPhone 5s or 6. am still on 4s and iOS8 is enough shit for me. so wait for ios9 JB but don’t mess around the older versions cause somebody else needs it, assholes

  • Martin Laesker
