Since Apple stopped signing 9.0.2 and there is no jailbreak for 9.1, anyone not on 9.0 - 9.0.2 can not downgrade or upgrade and jailbreak.

If you experience issues with your jailbreak and feel like you need to restore, don't as you will lose your jailbreak and will be forced to update. There are many steps you can take to fix the issue like booting into substrate safe mode or using SSH. Take a look at the stickies or post your issue and I and others here will try to help.

Sigh...

While both my devices are on 9.0.2 and staying that way for jailbreakability, not letting a user downgrade their own hardware they paid a huge amount of money for is my biggest pet peeve with iOS devices (although many Android devices do the same thing and even FORCE you to upgrade after a certain number of nags to install the update, which Apple devices don't) :(

Oh well, what can you do? #FirstWorldProblems

Pangu took to freaking long to release the Mac tool.
I don't think they care. The last few jailbreaks have all been released Windows first which tells me that the devs are PC people. They also probably figure that if you REALLY must have the jailbreak but are Mac only you will figure out a way to make it work.

VMs, dual booting Intel Macs, a spare PC. It's the rare case where someone is so solidly Mac that they can't come up with some type of PC to jailbreak. And if you're refusing to put bootcamp or a VM on your Intel Mac then that's a decision you're making. You being the general public, not you personally. Hell, I only own one Intel Mac at home. Everything else is PowerPC so I'm doubly screwed when it comes to a Mac based jailbreak. My one Intel is a Snow Leopard only MBP so it can't even sync with iOS 9 anyway. But I still came up with a way to jailbreak. Either the PC laptop I own, Win7 installed on my MBP or the PCs here at work. One way or the other - I found a way.

They bend to public pressure at least by offering a Mac JB later on, but again, I don't think they care.

Still using PowerPC? I have a PowerBook G4 titanium that still runs surprisingly well. I think that's the best designed laptop ever, besides the trackpad.

See my signature. :D

Those are my main Macs. There are others at home belonging to my wife and kids though as well as a couple Macs for everyone.

If you click on the "6 Displays" link in my signature you can see my Quicksilver. ;)
