When Apple released iOS 9.3.3, it wasn’t too long afterward that Pangu finally came through with another jailbreak. Called PPHelper, it was released to jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 through to iOS 9.2. Not the easiest of jailbreaks to apply at first, it has since been updated but is still only a semi-untethered jailbreak and will still not work on 32-bit devices.

Just a short time after PPHelper made it into the public domain, Apple killed it off with iOS 9.3.4 download , released purely to patch the exploits used in the jailbreak so, if you haven’t updated to iOS 9.3.4 and you want to hang on to your jailbreak, don’t update at this stage as we don’t know when a new public jailbreak will become available, or if it will.
Can iOS 9.3.4 be Jailbroken ?
We do know that iOS 9.3.4 can be jailbroken because we have now seen the proof [image above]. Luca Todesco has posted a photo on Twitter [ext link] showing an iPhone running on what looks like iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak, accompanied by a tweet saying he is attending DEFCON. We all know that this is not the first time that Todesco has done this; In the past, he has shown off a number of images and videos that show jailbreaks on newly released iOS versions but he has never released any of them to the public and most likely never will.
What this does mean is that, although iOS 9.3.4 has shut down the PPHelper jailbreak, it hasn’t necessarily closed off all of the exploits that may be used in a future jailbreak and Todesco’s photo is proof that it can be done. All we have to do now is wait and see if Pangu comes through with the goods or whether they choose to wait until iOS 10 is publicly released in September 2016 before they produce another jailbreak utility.
Prepare for iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak :
For those of you that have updated to iOS 9.3.4 and want to go backward, Apple is still signing iOS 9.3.3 but they won’t do for much longer. If you want to downgrade iOS 9.3.4 and then use PPHelper to jailbreak, do so now before the window of opportunity closes for good. You can find full guidelines and a step-by-step tutorial on installing PPHelper jailbreak on your iOS device at the given link.
