With the release of iOS 9.1, Apple has fixed the exploit that allowed the use of Pangu, the latest tool to Jailbreak, also on iOS 9 (9.0, 9.0.1, 9.0.2). This put users before a major dilemma: choose iOS 9.1 with its improvements or to remain with the Jailbreak iOS 9.0.x? If the choice was to upgrade to iOS 9.1, in the hope that a jailbreak was released in a short time, probably you will be disappointed, but for more than one reason. A jailbreak for iOS 9.1, and even for iOS 9.2 beta, already exists, but in all probability will never be released.
With a jailbreak for iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2, which can be executed via the browser, resourceful hackers have dusted off a million dollars. The bonus was awarded the IT security companies Zerodium. Not want to publish the jailbreak
A jailbreak, which is only possible through visiting a website was, the IT security company Zerodium worth a million dollars. As far as the experts paid by own account on Twitter for the first fully functional jailbreak that is possible through visiting a website using the browser. The exploit apparently bypasses the safety technology from Apple.
