Earlier today, Apple officially released iOS 9.2.1 with more exploits being patched. Even though the jailbreak community is eager to move from iOS 9.0.2, which is the latest jailbreakable firmware, to more updated versions of iOS, yet, there is no jailbreak release for this version of iOS, as well as earlier ones including iOS 9.1 and 9.2, and upcoming iOS 9.3 which is in beta, but only leaves us with rumors and teasers.
False alarm from TaiG’s partner, 3K Assistant
Last month, 3K Assistant, the partner company associated with the TaiG jailbreak team, publicly announced that the team has made significant progress on jailbreaking iOS 9.2 and a release could be expected soon. However, the post was quickly edited after being widely reported that disappointed the community. There is no further update from 3K since then on anything related to jailbreak.
Teasers of iOS 9.2 and 9.3 jailbreak from Italian Hacker Luca Todesco
In the past couple weeks, Italian Hacker Luca Todesco has been teasing iOS 9.2 jailbreak with a static screenshot of Cydia running on an iPhone 6. However, it had been confirmed that the jailbreak should be developed by an unseen Korean team alleged named as “Great Leader” and Luca stole the screenshot from them instead. He apologized in one of his tweets later-on. But anyway, the bad news is that he will never release it unless the bugs are killed.
And quickly after iOS 9.3 beta 1 been pushed by Apple, Luca showed off the corresponding jailbreak on YouTube.
Again, there’s no word on any release. However, the good news is, the latest firmware is still jailbreakable that leaves a glimpse of hope for the community. And it’s also likely that the Chinese jailbreak teams, either Pangu or TaiG, could make it as well in near future.

So what’s your take on the above? In my case, patience is the key and we will eventually have it at a right time. But let me know what you think in the comments.
