Falling back and jailbreaking iOS 9.0.2 just got tougher

Jailbreaking iOS is made simple by a great community of hackers, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have to figure out a ton of steps in order to make it that simple. Every new version of iOS brings added challenges as you not only have to wait for the Jailbreak community to support it, but you also have to be careful about not updating by accident. There is a safety time in most scenarios in case you did, but in the case of iOS 9, that window just closed.

Those of you that updated to iOS 9.1 by accident will be sad to know that now you’re stuck. In the past you still had the ability to use iTunes in order to fall back on iOS 9.0.2 and jailbreak your device again. Sadly as of today Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.0.2, meaning that if you do try to fall back, your device will simply not continue the installation and return you to iOS 9.1. Obviously the cool thing about iOS is that you’re not really going to end up with a brick in your hands, but you’ll have to wait for a jailbreak to iOS 9.1 in order to re-gain the functionality that you had.

We wouldn’t bet on that Jailbreak though, given how close iOS 9.2 is.
