I would not pay.Apple bribes hackers not to release jailbreaks so we can’t improve our expensive iPhones we own. I would pay a hacker to have a jailbreak .
Times change and a lot of what we used to be able to do in iOS 6/7 via jailbreak has been lost or replaced with subpar tweaks.
I for one am not paying for that. Especially when the best they can offer me is a semi-untethered jailbreak.
PS. It's bug bounties, not bribery.
