A few days ago, the hacker team PanGu to everyone’s surprise released an iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak tool semi-untethered for all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with 64-bit architecture. Subsequently, the tool was translated into English (read: Tutorial: Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 with PanGu and Cydia Impactor on Windows, Mac & Linux), but nothing was communicated about a possible release of ‘an untethered jailbreak.
As a reminder, a semi-untethered (or semi-tethered) jailbreak is a sealing procedure that requires launching a specific application each time your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch turns off. Without this, no Cydia tweak can be used and the Saurik application store crashes at startup. For the iOS 9.3.3 / iOS 9.2 jailbreak, the app in question is called PP (image below).
At the start of the week, the PanGu team announced on the discussion network Reddit that the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak will never be “untethered”. Bad news for all iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch customization enthusiasts who do not want to burden themselves with sometimes complex procedures after each restart of their iDevice.
No particular reason has been communicated by PanGu, but we suspect that beyond the difficulty of offering it, it is very likely that the developer team is already focused on iOS 10 and wants to keep its vulnerabilities warm. (read: PanGu: demo of an iOS 10 jailbreak and iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak soon). Evil for good, therefore! Finally, nothing new is to be taken concerning a possible iOS 9.3.2 jailbreak for 32-bit devices.
