    Hey, I have the T-mobile iPhone 6s and iOS is 9.3.1. Is the iOS 9.3.1 jailbreakable as of yet? I seen or read someone that TaiG jailbreak is web based by visiting Safari on the device, I went to TaiG website at taig.com/en and on my device it shows from iOS 8 so that is why I created this thread to ask if it is or not. Thanks,

    No it is not. Any jailbreak that says so is fake.

    Is it better to stay on ios 9.2.1 waiting for a jailbreak or it is the same to upgrade to 9.3.1?

    Apple has stopped sign in to previous iOS versions. In these days, I'm researching about iOS 9.3.1 jailbreaking tools. If there is anything special except fake tools. I will let you know. :)

    I'm not a big fan of posting links to assist with jailbreaking because the way I see it, you are hacking a device that will render it without support and you'll need to learn how to do things on your own in that case. Something I hate more than that is someone getting screwed over by scam artists. Check out iDownloadBlog's Jailbreak section for links to legitimate jailbreak locations, it comes with tutorials that you will want to read, even if they are simple, just so you understand what the process is and don't brick your phone in some cases. Pangu is the only jailbreak app for iOS 9.1 and below at the time of this writing and remember:

    If you pay for it, it's fake.

    Jailbreaking has always been free and will always be free. If you pay for it, you are getting scammed.

    That isn't true any more.

    Apple's policy now is that they have to prove that your jailbreak has caused whatever issue it is before they can deny you warranty.

    The worst possible effect is that the Apple genius will ask you to restore your device before Apple gives you service.

    Thanks for clarifying, I haven't jailbroken a device since iOS 7. I still think it's important that people who do jailbreak understand what they are doing when they jailbreak their device and how to stay secure (changing SSH password after installing OpenSSH) after jailbreaking and opening a gaping hole in their security. (This does not mean that a standard jailbreak affects security, it just means that apps you install could reduce your security.)

    I totally agree with you.

    Too many newbies come in and assume that just because it's in Cydia, it's okay to install. Cydia is not the app store and saurik is not responsible to make sure things are compatbile with every device and every firmware.

    So, as I like to say, the responsibility for your device switches from Apple to you. You are responsible to make sure that whatever it is you are doing does not compromise your security and is compatible with your device. You are responsible when installing something that screws up your device and responsible for fixing it.

    With great power comes great responsibility. Too many newbs refuse to learn this and get angry with the community and the devs - because they won't take responsibility for their actions.

    I could not agree more with you on this. If you aren't willing to do the research, you shouldn't be jailbreaking because no one likes to fix someone else's phone through forums for free when the asking user doesn't want to do any research beforehand.

    Yeah?

    My ~160 installed tweaks say different.

    They released the 9.1 JB just a month or two ago. How can you say it's dead?

    I think what ipos was saying was that the need for jb for most people is obsolete. Jailbreaking used to be the only way to get third party apps (check) control center (check) lock screen notifications and a notification pulldown (check, check). Others used it to enable tethering, then AT&T started monitoring for tethered devices and updated your plan for you, which negated that tweak. 3G unrestrictor was great until 1) they started charging for it and 2) when Apple updated their limit to 100 MB and most apps are <100 MB. There are still some great uses such as Winterboard (Summerboard if you remember those days) and if you are a pro user who *actually* uses SSH for purposes other than to show off to your friends that you can get hacked because chances are you didn't change the default user pass to something other than root alpine. :D Outside of that my biggest reason for leaving the jailbreak community was Apple put everything in the device that I needed from jailbreaks and installing a custom mobilesubstrate really killed my battery life during my last go at it. It doesn't help I'm one of those latest and greatest people. Another reason was that I couldn't verify (easily) that the tweaks were actually legit and not some scam to bust open the security on my device wider and faster than a piñata getting nailed by ten 25 year olds wielding baseball bats and crowbars.

    This may be true for him and it may be true for a majority of others, but it is not true for me.

    I have stated several times here in the past that once Apple allows me to fully customize my device in the same way I have it now is when I will stop jailbreaking.

    But there's more to that to me as well. Every time Apple takes a jailbreak tweak and incorporates it they do a horrible job of it.

    Can you really compare the stock Quick Reply to BiteSMS? Night Mode to f.lux? Call blocking to iBlacklist?

    Does the standard Alarm app have DisAlarm? What about Activator functions? Can I completely silence everything including alarms stock with one action if my phone is stock?

    How about labels in the Mail app? Mail Labeler lets me have colored labels and I can easily see what account the email belongs to.

    Can I make calls from the lockscreen stock? No, I need Callbar for that. How about photo albums? Apple doesn't do what Photoalbums plus does?

    I can go on. But my point is I use all this stuff! So for me, jailbreak will never be dead until Apple allows me to do all this (and more).

    For the average person this is irrelevant. They're ok with stock. But I'm not.

    As stated above, this is not a real jailbreak. It's pretty easy to spot it is a fake, mainly the $8.99 fee to download Cydia. o_O

    And this is why I step in to point people in the right direction, that is $9 you'll never get back. No telling what else might have been installed on your iPhone along with that jailbreak. It's a common hacker technique by the way, actually do what the user wants so they look past what you wanted to do. It's called misdirection and is a part of the social engineering aspect of hacking.

    The real jailbreak feature I was looking for is Remote Messages, so I can respond to text messages with my full keyboard while sitting at my desk. To me, that is a game changer.

    I can do that with the stock OS, if you have a mac, you can use Messages on your mac to send/receive text messages on your phone. I suppose you have to have a compatible mac to be able to do that. I think the "Cut off" is a late 2011 MacBook, not sure about iMac/MacPro. If your mac is NOT compatible, you might be able to "hack" it with Continuity Activation Tool, you can find much info about this on another area of MAcRumors.

    My early 2008 vintage MacBook Pro can send/receive iMessages/SMS via my iPhone6...
