    Hi all,

    Is there a tweak on Cydia that has the security fixes of iOS 9.1? Or something that makes iOS more secure even if it's jailbroken?

    Thanks in advance

    When the phone is jailbroken, the creators exploit a security hole in the system. In order to prevent that being exploited for a malicious reason, they also patch the exploit afterwards.

    Thank you, but I know that :), so I am asking you again, why more security? Provided of course, you are not using pirated stuff.....

    The only thing you could do is change the root password.

    It would close the loophole that made he jb possible lol. So if you want to close it you will need to do a fresh install of 9.1 and be without a jb.

    Sometimes the jailbreak doesn't close any of the exploits it uses to jailbreak iOS.

    The jailbreak would close the initial injection vector, not the actual jailbreak itself.

    For the past several years, jailbreaks have used many different exploits to jailbreak the system. To get the jailbreak onto the system, an initial injection vector is needed. For Pangu9, the vector is a bug with iTunes' restore ability. Pangu9 could fix this exploit and still function properly.

    Yes. I think the last bootrom one was with the 3G and 3GS.

    The A4 devices had a bootrom level jailbreak. It was a tethered one, but still a bootrom level jailbreak.

    Oh yeah. I remeber how much a pain that was. It was worth it though since that was like a golden age era of jail breaking. Bitesms. Multiflow. Good times.
