The long-awaited iOS 9 jailbreak was provided to us a few days ago by the great Pangu team. Now that all the iOS versions between iOS 9 upto iOS 9.0.2 are jailbreakable by the Pangu 9 tool, we already have our eyes fixed on the next jailbreak update, the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. iOS 9.1 has been already released by Apple a month back, and considering the fact that the release of iOS 9.2
is not too far [ released- Download iOS 9.2 here , ext link ], an iOS 9.1 jailbreak is highly unlikely and jailbreak teams would obviously want to jailbreak iOS 9.2 as it would be less buggy than the previous iOS 9 versions.

Challenges in Jailbreaking iOS 9.2 ?
Well, the main challenge when jailbreaking iOS 9 was the KPP (Kernel Patch Protection), but now that we have the Pangu 9 tool [ext link] in our hands, we can confirm that the team has found a way around it. So KPP shouldn’t be a challenge anymore.
However, it is quite possible that Apple might patch the iOS 9 jailbreak exploits in iOS 9.2 , which would make the jailbreak teams start a fresh hunt for an iOS 9.2 jailbreak. iOS 9.1 has already been released [Download iOS 9.1 – ext link] and we know that it does not support the Pangu 9 jailbreak yet . But when it does, then iOS 9.2 will be easy to jailbreak. But then again, as we mentioned earlier, anything can happen till the time iOS 9.2 is jailbroken, so we still need to wait for its release to say anything concrete.
When will the iOS 9.2 Jailbreak Come Out ?
Before the release of the iOS 9 jailbreak, some experts were of the opinion that the hacker teams would jailbreak iOS 9.2 and not any firmware before that. However, now that we have the iOS 9 jailbreak, that scenario has changed.

Some other sources had mentioned that the iOS 9 jailbreak won’t work with iOS 9.1, which hasn’t been tested out yet, but might be quite true. Apple had been killing a lot of good bugs in iOS 9.1 in its beta testing phase, which is why all the jailbreak teams had their eyes on making a jailbreak for iOS 9.0.2 and below. Considering the fact that iOS 9.2 will be much more stable and a firmware worth staying on, jailbreak teams will probably concentrate on iOS 9.2 for the next jailbreak.
We expect the hacker teams to jailbreak iOS 9.2 once it is officially seeded by Apple for the public. The hunt for the jailbreak will start once iOS 9.2 betas
start rolling out [ Now Available – Download iOS 9.2 ]. So we suggest that you stay on the jailbroken iOS 9 firmware and do not update to iOS 9.1 if you don’t want to risk losing your jailbreak.
Which Team Will Release the iOS 9.2 Jailbreak ?
As the Pangu team has been the first to jailbreak iOS 9 and no other team has managed to release a jailbreak for iOS 9-iOS 9.0.2, all the hopes are pinned on Team Pangu for coming up with the iOS 9.2 jailbreak. An educated guess would say that the Pangu team is busy finding exploits in iOS 9.1 to update its Pangu 9 tool for the firmware, and the team will shift its attention towards iOS 9.2 once the iOS 9.2 betas start coming out.
On the other hand, we have the TaiG team too, which had risen to fame with the iOS 8.3 and iOS 8.4 jailbreaks. The team has not been very active, but we can say that it is possibly working on the iOS 9.2 jailbreak as well. TaiG has the habit of surprising everyone with a jailbreak at the least-expected moment, so the team might surprise us again by releasing a jailbreak for iOS 9.2 first.
Then there is the K33n (Keen) team that had been in the news for announcing that it was working on the iOS 9 jailbreak under the guidance of Team Pangu. The team was going to release an iOS 9 jailbreak right after the release of iOS 9, but that has not happened yet. But having said that, the Keen team was very confident about releasing the iOS 9 jailbreak, so is is highly likely that it will jailbreak iOS 9.2, and the Pangu team might back it this time.
Lastly, we know that a hacker named iH8sn0w had demonstrated [ext link – video] an iOS 9 jailbreak but did not release. He might also be in the iOS 9.2 jailbreak race. Luca Todesco, who was going to release the Yalu Jailbreak for iOS 8.4.1 [ext link], might also consider jailbreaking iOS 9.2. Nothing has been confirmed about this yet, so we need to wait for further developments.
