Pangu has suddenly become the jailbreak star in the iOS community by releasing the iOS 9 jailbreak for iOS upto iOS 9.0.2. However, Apple just released iOS 9.1 a few days ago and patched the jailbreak exploits used in the Pangu 9 jailbreak. This places the Pangu team back to the starting line and all the attention has now turned towards the Pangu 9.2 jailbreak. The latest iOS firmware, iOS 9.2 has already been seeded to the Apple Developer Center, and this is the time when Pangu starts working on the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. Let’s get into a bit more details.
Is it possible to Pangu Jailbreak iOS 9.2 ?
Right at the time when iOS 9 betas were being seeded to the Apple Developer Center, it became clear that jailbreaking iOS 9 wasn’t going to be easy at all. KPP (Kernel Patch Protections) was perhaps the biggest hurdle in the path of jailbreaking iOS 9. But thankfully, the Pangu team found a way around it and exploited iOS 9’s vulnerabilities to come up with the Pangu iOS 9 Jailbreak.
However, now that the iOS 9.1 release has patched the Pangu 9 jailbreak exploits, the team needs to start from ground zero and needs to find new exploits for jailbreaking iOS 9.2. Thankfully, iOS 9.2 has started rolling out, with the firmware released just yesterday. Pangu can now start dissecting iOS 9.2 to find new jailbreak exploits.

As stated earlier, Apple has rolled out iOS 9.2, which has given a green signal to the Pangu team to start working on the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. Considering the fact that Pangu 9 exploits have been patched by iOS 9.1, Pangu needs to uncover new exploits, which will give some time. So an educated guess says that the Pangu 9.2 jailbreak will be released within a week or two of the public release of iOS 9.2.
iOS 9.2 Jailbreak by other Teams ?
Pangu has team is the current iOS jailbreak leader, as it has been active since it released the Pangu 9 jailbreak. The team released an update for its iOS 9 jailbreak tool and also released the Pangu 9 Mac [ext link] compatible version of the tool, thus proving its dedication towards jailbreaking iOS 9.
On the other hand, we also need to consider the possibility of the TaiG team working on an TaiG 9.2 jailbreak. Even though we haven’t heard of the TaiG team since a lot of weeks now, we know that the TaiG team has been busy finding iOS 9 exploits. This tells us that TaiG might release an iOS 9.2 jailbreak.
The first team to announce its interests over an iOS 9 jailbreak was the K33n (Keen) team, but we haven’t received any updates from them till now. Nevertheless, since the team had released the announcement so confidently, we’re sure that a Keen iOS 9.2 jailbreak might also be on its way. Creator of the Yalu iOS 8.4.1 Jailbreak [ext link], Luca Todesco, might also surprise us by releasing an iOS 9.2 jailbreak. All we need to do now is wait for Apple to release iOS 9.2, after which the iOS 9.2 jailbreak mystery will come to an end.
