Pangu Co-founders to talk Pangu 9 internals; PP editorials set expectations on unlikely iOS 9.3 jailbreak

This summer will be a busy one for the famous Chinese jailbreak team Pangu. Followed by co-hosting Mobile Security Conference (MOSEC) in 2 months time, the Co-Founders of Pangu jailbreak team will give a briefing session in the upcoming Black Hat USA 2016 to be held in Las Vegas.

The topic is Pangu 9 Internals. They aim to reveal the internals of Pangu 9, including logical error in an exploitable system service, details on how Pangu 9 gains arbitrary code execution outside the sandbox, as well as vulnerability that enables Pangu 9 to achieve persistent code signing bypass, etc. This created another reason for the Chinese jailbreak community to both bashing them for not releasing a jailbreak for newer version of iOS and meanwhile speculating possible jailbreak release sooner or later.

On another hand, editor in PP (who used to be partner of the Pangu team) has been managing the community’s expectation over the previous weeks that it is very unlikely that we will see an iOS 9.3 jailbreak release anytime onwards. There are quite a number of editorials they posted after Pangu’s iOS 9.1 jailbreak captioned with disappointment and pessimism towards new jailbreaks. Here are some examples translated:

  1. It’s getting more difficult to jailbreak iOS 9.3…
  2. Future of iOS 9.3 jailbreak remains uncertain
  3. iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak remains unknown and missing…
  4. Not much time left for iOS 9.3.1 as counting down for iOS 10 release
  5. iOS 9.3/9.3.1 jailbreak didn’t come on Labour Day holiday…
  6. Hopeless for iOS 9.3/9.3.1 jailbreak? Former jailbreak hacker “surrender” to Apple (for releasing Apple Store app – System and Security Info)

These headings have gained expectedly loads of hates from the community that they are “not focusing on what they should do” – which means providing real jailbreak update or release a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3/9.3.1.

What’s your take on Pangu team’s move and PP’s view on iOS 9.3 jailbreak? Let me know in the comments.
