    Apparently a TAIG partner ("3K assistant") divulged that a 9.2 jailbreak is on the horizon.

    Here is the quote via Google Translate:

    I read that too. Good news for sure. I kind of lost my JB on my 5S. Cydia disappeared on it and typing cydia:// in safari gives an error. It's still jailbroken and all my mods are installed, I just can't change anything or add anything with no Cydia. My 6+ and 6S+ are still jailbroken so I'm still good there.

    Good news. I stupidly lost my 9.0.2 jailbreak due to some issues which meant I had to upgrade to 9.1

    I'm still on 9.1 . I have the 9.2 ipsw downloaded. Maybe I'll bite the bullet tonight and upgrade to 9.2

    Curious why you need the 9.2 IPSW when just clicking "Update" in iTunes will take care of going to 9.2 for you.

    No specific reason, just that a lot of jailbreakers recommend downloading the ipsw file on itunes, then upgrading.

    OK.

    I see jailbreakers doing this a lot and I just don't know why. I've been jailbreaking since late 2011 and have never needed to download an IPSW to have iTunes update to whatever the latest version is. Hence my question.

    Thanks.

    The reason why don't use iTunes to download IPSW is because for me it takes longer to download than using a site like IPSW.me.

    And on a side note I picked up this beauty.

    Can't wait for that 9.2 jailbreak now.

    This begs another question (your pic).

    I see this stylized picture a lot. Screen content aside you could stick my own 6s+ in the best light and it wouldn't look anywhere near what you are showing pictured here - or what others have show in the screenshot thread.

    So, is this some stylized pic that's available somewhere or are people just getting professional pictures of their phone taken?

    Sometimes the mirror sites will give you a faster download speed. This is especially true if, lets say a jailbreak is release for 9.2, there will be a rush on Apple's servers, and you will get a slow download speed. You can download it in advance, and have it ready to go. I keep mine ready to go, in case a jailbreak is release while i'm at work, then I don't have to wait for it to download on a slow connection, or waste precious hotspot data.

    Ah, ok. Gotcha.

    I have a reliable and fast connection both at work and home so this hasn't ever been a big deal for me. I imagine if that was not the case or if my boss wanted to lock things down it would matter.

    Thanks for the explanation!

    It basically says that they wonder since Christmas is near, if they will make the JB a gift to us this week. It's nothing new that hasn't been posted about. in this thread. It also mentions that 9.2.1 is in beta now so they may want to hurry the JB along

    I work in different places from day to day, sometimes a few days in a row, so it’s the luck of the draw for me. If some kind person leaves an open WiFi connection, or it’s a rare location where Sprint has a decent speed, then I'm ok, and can use my phone as a HotSpot. At home I have 300 MBPS,

    I don't think a slow wifi is good enough a reason to restore and upgrade firmware via ipsw file.

    My reasoning was maybe I could save shsh blobs and have an older firmware ipsw file available if I want to downgrade but so far I can't find any instructions to allow me to save blobs for iOS 9.

    Also I was lead to believe that restoring iPhone instead of upgrading firmware is 'cleaner' but it is sort of annoying and time consuming restoring your backup after the upgrade.

    I think I'll just simply upgrade via the phone only in future unless someone can give a compelling reason as to why not.

    It's just nice to not have to redownload the ipsw if you ever find yourself in a situation that you have to restore (which could take a long time depending on internet connection speeds). For example, those that landed into the BLoD situation.

    That one post containing two wallpapers bothers you that much? Are you spending Christmas on your own or just usually like this?
