When Pangu released their jailbreak for iOS 9.1 , it didn’t take too long for Apple to patch it and stop it in its tracks with iOS 9.2 update. Since then, the jailbreak community has been waiting patiently for a new jailbreak and many who updated to iOS 9.2 stayed there, refusing to update beyond that in case a jailbreak was released and they lost the chance to use it. Not long back, we heard that Taig and their counterparts, 3K Assistant, were working on a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 and claimed to have made a big breakthrough in it. However, shortly afterward, that statement was retracted with the team having to admit that they had not in actual fact, got a jailbreak for us to use.

At the start of July, Pangu co hosted MOSEC and we heard that they were possibly going to be releasing an iOS 9.2 jailbreak [ext link] but, again, nothing was heard and many jailbreak users began to give up hope. However, in a sudden move, Pangu has, in fact, released that jailbreak for iOS 9.2. It was developed with PP Assistant and is called PPHelper; users who updated to iOS 9.2 can download the utility now. However, if you use a Mac, you will not be able to download PPHelper as it only works on Windows at this stage. We think that there will be a Mac version released soon but, at the time of writing, there is no definite news. Also, if you only have a 32-bit device at your disposal, you cannot use the jailbreak as it will only work on a 64-bit device. This is in direct contrast to some of the solutions we saw earlier this year that would only work on the older devices – these jailbreaks were never released to the public.
