Not only is an iOS 9.2 jailbreak in the works, but it could be here sooner than you think. That all, according to 3K Assistant, a long-time TaiG jailbreak partner. 3K Assistant is the same name of the utility that we always recommend unchecking on TaiG jailbreaks, because it usually has links to pirated content and just seems shady overall.

According to a report by Stephen Chan, who’s reported on jailbreaking accurately in the past, 3K Assistant has announced that a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 is coming soon via the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.

Unfortunately, the Weibo post appears to have been removed by 3K Assistant. There is a blog post, however, that goes into detail on the progress of the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. The blog post is in Chinese, but you can use Google Translate to gain a rough translation of the update.

Be sure to head over to Chan’s blog for screenshots of the original 3K Assistant weibo post.

What do you think about the prospect of an iOS 9.2 untethered jailbreak? Are you highly anticipating it?

  • I really do hope the new jailbreak comes out around Christmas or before the new year. Highly doubt that though.

    • Akhter Hossain

      Before Christmas

      • Manuel Molina

        I’m thinking before the end of the year.

    • Marcus

      Maybe late afternoon on Christmas Day

  • ready1take1

    Merry Christmas everyone

  • Cristian B

    Yes! I’ve been dying to update.

  • Mikayıl Abaszadə

    In great great great anticipation!!

  • Mr.Coolfreak

    And than soon Apple will release iOS 9.3 with performance boosts and bug fixes. This seems to be there answer to beating jailbreaks, having more minor frequent updates

    • Dan

      Apple do not give a fig about jailbreak. The reason the updates normally kill the JB is because they patch up the holes that the jail break uses, and that is purely because of security reasons.

      • Juschan

        well … i guess the higher update rate since iOS 8 (?) has to do sth with jailbreaking…

      • Dan

        Updates are for iOS improvements, surely you realize that.
        I won’t bore you with details of how easy it would be for Apple to prevent jail breaking if they really wanted to.

      • Elxlr

        mind, sharing the easy process for apple to prevent JB. thanks.

  • Xin Chan

    Thanks Jeff for sharing!

  • Shaw

    you can use TouchIDEverywhere — a free tweak. SpritOfLogic is just out of mind, never responds bug report but always charge 3$ for update

    • notewar

      does it work on ios9? i tried it but nothing happenes

      • Okada San

        Yes I use it on iOS 9. It works well.

    • sadaN

      Couldn’t find it on Cydia

  • droid3000

    my current jailbreak is a mess. i need to do a clean sweep so i cant wait for the 9.2 to come out

    • Kyle

      Then use Cydia Impactor. Do a full iTunes oder iCloud backup, download it from BigBoss (or Saurik’s beta repo) and it will restore your device on 9.0.2 or whatever OS ur on. Then re-jailbreak and put ur backup on.

      • f96lrs

        cydia inpactor does not work 9.0.2

      • Me

        Almost lost this guy’s JB.. STOP USING CYDIA IMPACTOR!!! it’s still in beta.

      • mrgerbik

        I read some people got the beta to work with 9.02… I had tried on an iPhone 6 and it failed every time

      • Kyle

        I used the beta three times on my iPhone 6 when I was still on 9.0.2. worked without any problems.

      • andythecurefan

        Same. It’s hit or miss apparently.

      • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

        Use ilexrat that is stable and free from cydia. Google it to ready about it

      • SIMON

        I don’t think so it’s ready to work with iOS 9…

      • droid3000

        Thanks I might try that if a new jb doesn’t come out in the next few days. I’m on 8.1 If that matters

      • Kyle

        If ur on 8.1 then you can use it from the BigBoss repo.

  • This is a gift

  • Mike M. Powell

    I’m willing to donate if they release on x’mas or b4 the new year :), I really appreciate their hardwork, or heck I’ll just donate to donate ^_^

  • tariq

    this post made my day! Cant wait for 9.2 jb! I havnt had an iphone since the ios 7 with the Evasi0n! Their jb was on christmas also! And now i switch from android to apple and i get the same awesome present this year! (:

  • iOS Kush

    A 9.2 jailbreak would be nice..I’m currently still running my 9.0.2 jailbroken no issues so far.

  • Blip dude

    Well, I think it was pretty obvious that a 9.2 Jailbreak was in the works, but was just a matter of when.

  • Akhter Hossain

    please released before marry Christmas

  • Jannomag

    Need a Jailbreak for getting a replacement from apple – my 6S display has a warm-cold color gradient from left to right, really aweful. But without Jailbreak for 9.2 I can’t use a replacement iPhone 😀

    • Julio Hernandez

      i had to get a replacement as well only because my Taptic Engine was making a strange rattling noise when it would vibrate and I got a replacement with 9.2 on it and not 9.0.2 :/

  • jerryx2000

    It should logically arrive around Christmas. This is the best time from a business point of view. People will be more happy hence donate more. So win win.

  • Eikast

    I haven’t had a jailbreak since iOS 9 was released. Can’t wait to have a jailbreak on my 6s+ on iOS 9.2.
    I didn’t want to give up official 9.1 emoji support, and of course iOS 9.2 is godsend.

  • Preben Faarkrog Hansen

    Jb dont mean s**T for me anymore.

    • R3VVEDUP

      then why read the article?

    • Guilherme 

      what the hell are you doing here then?!

    • Dave

      No one cares about your opinion.

  • Gregg

    Pangu said they’d release a jb before Christmas.

    • Guilherme 

      That’s a fake account. The official is @PanguTeam

      • Gregg

        Ok, thanks, didn’t know.

    • SIMON

      Pangu Team JB is allways shitty beta crap.

      • Morgan Freeman

        I’ve not had a problem with Pangu jailbreaks. Sorry about your luck. Don’t choke too hard on that ball.

    • Me

      1. This is fake.
      2. Where do you read they’d release it before christmas in this tweet. I’m genuinely curious…..

      • Morgan Freeman

        1. If you can’t make out what the tweet was hinting at, then I have bad news for you.
        2. Since it is fake, it is irrelevant anyways.

      • Gregg

        Didn’t realize that was a fake, thanks for letting me know.

    • iPhoneWINS

      no mac version till 2017

    • pnh

      The English is too good to be from Pangu. Not trying to be funny, racist or otherwise. Just sayin’.

  • White Michael Jackson

    What is so special about ios 9.2 anyway? Any reason to update from 9.0.2?

    • Elias Chao

      It might vary from device to device, but it was a considerably boost in performance on my 6 Plus.

    • Lit

      Many, and myself, have reported that it is smoother and faster

  • Joshfei

    I’m on 8.4 – What is the best way to wipe the device clean, including all traces of the jailbreak so I can start fresh, yet still keep important (to me) data like message and whatsapp history?

    • Tommy

      cydia impactor, and whatsapp should also be just saved in the account.

      • Joshfei

        cool, thanks.

  • Javiers

    To the TaiG Team,

    Please and thank you.

  • iPhoneWINS

    im so damn tired of updating and re jailbreaking omg.. takes so long to get all my damn tweaks working as i want them… apple always releases IOS with 18236823648912692846 bugs then they constantly release updates too kill jailbreakes..

  • M_Hawke

    Well, I was looking forward to it since I didn’t jb iOS 9 because Springtomize wasn’t updated for 9 and I just didn’t want to have to reconfigure everything in my folders, etc. until Springtomize was updated. Well, now it’s updated but everyone says it is buggy. Bummer. I guess it’s time to move on from Springtomize.

  • Tommy

    is it me or are there more ads here now?

    • Morgan Freeman

      They’ve become sentient. o.O

  • Fanboy 

    Plug into iTunes and click “Restore” it will whip everything including jailbreak. Once the 9.2 jailbreak has been released, of course.

    • askep3

      Is there any way I can restore my data after I wipe everything?

      • Fanboy 

        There’s some applications that can do that for you such as “Syncios Data Transfer”. But I personally recommend doing a fresh restore. Pretty tedious but definitely worth it. Only thing I save is my photos and AirDrop them back to myself, other than my contacts, etc. from iCloud of course.

  • Harry

    I’m dying to update. Hope the JB release before new year.

  • the hood

    I have a spare pair of pants on standby, my body is now ready.

  • xxFoxtail

    The only thing I need to jailbreak for is YouTube++, LittleBrother and Zeppelin. I’d love to use Ayeris again too.

  • Sameeh

    Out of the topic guys, my iphone 5s doesn’t go in standby mode as it should, due to that my battery drains and I’m on stock ios. I’ve tried everything nothing works. Need help 🙁

    • iPhone 6 Plus here. 9.2 cut my battery life in less than half. I leave the house around 7am and at 1:30PM my battery is usually ~75%. On 9.2 my phone was down to 38% at 1:30PM. After looking through the settings I noticed standby and usage times were equal (so phone not going into standby) I restored, rebooted, reset, nothing worked. I downgraded to 9.1 and everything is back to normal. I’m staying on 9.1 until I can be sure this won’t happen.

      • Sameeh

        I’m on iOS 9.1 😀
        I guess something is wrong with my backup which is draining my iphone. Thinking of resetting my iphone as a new device. Let’s see. If anyone has a better idea i would be glad to know.

      • Sameeh

        And this is happening with my iphone 5s. My friend’s iphone 5s is working perfectly even on 9.1 and 9.2. No problems with standby. So i guess somethings wrong with my software. But I don’t know what’s wrong.

  • Unknow Unknow

    Jailbreak with this buggy iOS makes the iPhone 6’s more crapy

  • jay

    iOS is already so good every update makes it better. Is a jailbreak still a must?

  • My one and only gripe with these guys is that they tend to release these jailbreaks right before a new iOS update is about to be released. It gives many very little time to get their iDevice jailbroken, while Apple is still signing, and it just seems poorly planned.
    Why waste an exploit on an iOS that is about to be updated, which will inevitably be patched in that forthcoming update? Just seems like a waste of an exploit, but I really can’t complain much because A) I can’t find exploits and write code myself and B) I’m always more than grateful and donate because an iPhone without a jailbreak is SOOOO boring!

  • Preben Faarkrog Hansen

    Never gonna happen!!!!

  • Antzboogie

    I cant wait for this to drop!!

  • AnoNymouz

    When the Apple Watch works with a jailbroken iPhone. Then I’ll consider jailbreaking again.

    • Wood1030

      My i6 is jb’d and  Watch works fine.

  • roberte

    When is Sebastian going on holidays next? That’s when the 9.2 jailbreak will be released. On Windows only of course…

  • Chandorotheary HAK

    there were no any proud jb can before christms or new year, but it can be before chinese new year I think.

  • James Men-Kun Shih

    Wish it comes out tomorrow

  • barakmitz

    getting a new iphone 6s plus on January. Hope they will not burn 9.2.1 and wait for the final , cause mine will come with the new version if it’s out

  • Daniel Kleinberg

    Praise the lord… It’s coming!!!
    Cydia is the main reason why I changed my Nokia for an iPhone about 5 years ago.

  • Kevin Thomas

    I can’t wait for this. My iPad Mini is on 9.0.2 but doesn’t work correctly.
    I was on 9.0 updated to 9.0.2 to re-jailbreak but it didn’t update correctly and wouldn’t let me re-jailbreak using 9.0.2 TaiG jailbreak tool. It was failing all the time. Cydia is still on my iPad but I can’t use Cydia Impactor as no tweaks work now. It says error finding li/jar/dg source or something similar when startign Cydia and I can’t use Taig to re-jailbreak. If anyone can help me restore without losing ios 9.0.2 it would be appreciated or do I wait until 9.2 jailbreak?

    Worthless rumors, it could be 1 day, 1 year or never.

  • Dave
