    You guys remember the good old days when a jailbreak would be released within a week of an update? Oh man, these were good times.

    I'm still sitting here on 9.0.2 with a stable phone but iTunes won't see it unless in dfu mode. Can't backup or sync music due to some software conflict not related to any apps. Pain in my ass.

    I guess those days are gone. I really hope some new jailbreak is released soon!

    I've all but given up, don't even go to r/jailbreak as much. Apple must be in their glory.

    I'm using my 5S and 6+ jailbroken and set aside my 6S+ and 6S until I can JB them. My iPad Mini 2 is also jailbroken.

    I'm have no problem waiting.

    ^^^Same…and I have over 160 tweaks installed. iTunes sees my phone just fine…whenever I bother to use it.

    Something is odd with mine. It's not tweak related too. Ah well. Once a new JB comes out it will be fixed. Funny that iPhoto works fine but iTunes does not. Only work around was using a 3rd party software to sync music.

    Do you have a Mac. And if so is it running Snow Leopard? Apple cut support for Snow Leopard Macs with iDevices running iOS 9.

    I'm tired of waiting as well. I haven't jail broken iOS 9 at all and I want to jailbreak so bad. I don't know what these jailbreak devs are doing

    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?

    Stay on whatever version you are on now.

    As I mentioned above, I upgraded my 6S from 9.1 to 9.2 and a few months later, there was a JB for 9.1.

    there's a lot of people whining over something they didn't create or even pay for. i mean really if it's that important to you then become a developer

    Hate to say it but being a developer isn't going to teach you how to hack iOS.

    When was this? iOS 7 took like 3 months or more to jailbreak. iOS 6.1.2+ took like 5 months to be released. iOS 8 took longer than a week. So did iOS 9. If I recall most of the previous jailbreaks took longer than a week.

    I am hoping there's a JB soon. I have a number of niggling issues I know would be fixed by a restore. The most annoying being whatsapp alerts don't come through so I don't know I've got a message until I look at the phone.

    Still. I'll wait patiently!

    Back in the day of iOS 3-4, jailbreaks would be released left, right and centre, then there was a community for jailbreaking, now the jailbreaking community is cancer.

    My 6S+ came with 9.2.1. Got sick of waiting, upgraded to 9.3.1 and been waiting ever since. Every day I miss all the brilliant tweaks I had on my good ol' 6. I wouldn't call iOS unusable without a JB, but there are so many little annoyances that really make me contemplate leaving the iPhone behind if there's no JB in the near future.

    If I ever switch to an Android device it wont be because I couldn't JB my iPhone.

    Have you tried reinstalling iTunes? The same thing happened to me last week and I am not jailbroaken at the moment. iTunes just refused to recognize my iPhone. What I did was, complete uninstall of iTunes and all related Apple software. After that, installed iTunes again and that was it. iTunes and iPhone are happy together again :)

    Ironic that you mention the word ignorant in that reply, I'm sure you won't get it though.

    I tried reinstalling iTunes and multiple computers / cables. It's an odd issue that I can't find a workaround.

    Same. It's the simple little visual tweaks that I miss the most too. More specifically night mode. iOS looks so much better in the dark...
