Just a few days ago iOS 9 was launched right after Apple’s event and guess what, it’s been Jailbroken already by iH8sn0w.
Most of you know the developer/hacker iH8sn0w, who has made jailbreak tools like Sn0wbreeze and P0sixspwn. Now this Jailbreak is not public at this time and there are no plans for a release either. iOS 9 isn’t due for a public release until the 16th of September.
Apple has made iOS 9 available to developers so they can make any changes to their software if they need to, before iOS9 goes public. iOS 9 Gold Master and iOS 9.1 beta 1 versions can be downloaded at Apple’s Developer Center.
It’s unreal how fast iH8sn0w was able to do this, but he is a very talented developer/hacker and here is what he had to say about it.
“Poking into iOS 9 is fun. A little annoyed at some new things. But very surprised at how similar it is to iOS 8 internally.
Worth noting, iOS 9+ arm64 iDevices now enforce a checksum on __TEXT/DATA.const regions of the kernel through the use of TrustZone. Modifying said sections will cause the device to panic (either at kernel or EL3 will force a reboot if the kernel refused to gracefully panic). Essentially, it’s KPP (Kernel Patch Protection). You can race it though if you want to play with things. Just be quick! ;P
Also, there should technically now be two additional partitions (baseband_data [s1s3] and logs [s1s4]) but didn’t really bother with those as they weren’t critical.”
iH8snow said that he doesn’t have any plans for a release, but seeing that it can be done other developers/hackers might be able to make something happen and release a new jailbreak for iOS 9.
