I'm still on a JB 8.1 ios on my iphone 6 and from what I see this new JB will only last a year right? or could end sooner if MS blocks the certificate right?

Not sure but since it's only a software that can be manipulated on their end then it's a good possibility.
Either way iOS 9.3.3 is not signed any more so whoever doesn't have it installed already has missed the train.

good to know...at least I did install it on my Ipad mini. Now will be mad that I updated and then lose JB.

It will last until April 2017. According to what I have read, there's an entry in the hosts file to prevent the occasional check to see if the certificate was revoked or not (the certificate used supposedly has been revoked already)

iOS 9.3.2, 9.3.3, and 9.3.4 are currently still being signed

Great.
Someone posted today that the signing window stopped so I believed it:)
Whoever is still thinking about going for this jb or messed it up and needs to restore should do it right now asap...

I'm having an issue...

So, my Verizon 5s can't restore via the 9.3.3 IPSW. However, my Verizon 6 restored to 9.3.3 with the IPSW just fine. Odd.

I think he probably just downloaded the wrong ipsw

I think Apple also usually still signs older firmwares for a few days after a new release

I downloaded the proper one listed for it. However, I downloaded the improper one, and it's working lol. Go figure. I have the Verizon 5s (GSM+CDMA) A1533. The 6,2.... is what I'm supposed to be using. However, the 6,1 version for GSM alone worked. /shrugs

It is good if the check from Apple is prevented, I hope this is true. I think the Pangu jb on 9.3.3 is stellar and perhaps Apple is not at all happy that some of us have it, especially side loaded through a trusted certificate. I have never had any other jailbreak use so little power while being rock solid and buttery smooth on a daily basis.

On that note, would Apple dare to revoke a paid 1 year developer cert for violation of user agreement? I wonder...

I don't think it'll get revoked if you used it only for yourself. If you started distributing the license for free, then i'm sure they'll revoke it without a second thought

But if something does happen to the enterprise certificate, I imagine that we can just buy one of those 3rd party provisioning license for a few bucks and have the pangu app installed for a year (a few bucks beats resigning the app every 7 days in my opinion)

How many other jailbreaks did you use before?
My current jb on iOS 9.0.2 and most I did before never had any issues with power or stability.
Those issues Come up with bad tweaks installed. But everyone always loads their devices with junk and then think it's the jb that is bad or unstable or battery intensive.
None of that is true.
A jb itself never eats battery or makes the phone buggy.

The one thing about the iOS 9.0.2 jailbreak that really bugged me was with RemoteMessages (lets you text/iMessage from your computer; I use windows). There was an issue with some people (I happen to be the unlucky minority that was affected) where RemoteMessages would crash everytime you get a media message (restoring wasn't an option since 9.0.2 was no longer signed). Needless to say, it was very inconvenient

I also restore and start as new every jailbreak, so no idea what that could've been caused by. But so glad to see that I no longer have this issue on iOS 9.3.3 :D

I also had the nightly reboot issue, and some weird touch ID issues (probably tweak related but goes away with a reboot, and since my phone does its' nightly reboots, I only encountered this issue occasionally)

But so far, happy with iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Feels more responsive, but this is probably more to do with iOS 9.3.3 than the jailbreak. It isn't as much as a pain as I thought it would be (but I only do reboots every once in a while so that might be the reason it's been fine for me)

Weird, never had any Remotemessages problems.
I do get the random night reboots but that happens on even stock phones on 9.0.2 all the way up to iOS 9.3 versions so it's not caused by the JB itself but from Apple bugs.

Sadly, the RemoteMessages problem only happened on some devices (seems to be the minority). The developers couldn't reproduce the problem (probably has something to do with a bad restore/installation of iOS), so they couldn't even attempt to fix it.

I'm also happy to say that I haven't gotten any nightly reboots on iOS 9.3.3 since I jailbroke on saturday (about 6 days ago)

I hear you.
I think Apple finally fixed the issues with the nightly reboots cause its not happening on stock 9.3.3 either.

I've been jailbroken full time since iOS 4 and jailbreak dot com. I actually completely skipped iOS 6 because 5 was so good to me with the dev team jb. I'm sure I have run some ridiculous tweaks back in the day but overall I've been very frugal. Not saying that the older jailbreaks hurt battery any more than stock iOS did. They did crash a heck of a lot more than Pangu during the first week and continued to flake out at random intervals thru EOL. I'm stating that after upgrading from 8.3 to 9.3 and re-jailbreaking immediately with Pangu English from a Mac and then runnning same tweaks as before with same user settings, I am experiencing better battery life than I've ever had; from any iPhone ever. Maybe it's iOS 9, I dunno.. But I sure like it. Time will tell. :)

I imagine that the tweak devs have also refined their skills with better code over the years which certainly deserves credit for added stability. Funny many jbers are giving up or going android when the refined jailbreak we see today may provide best experience yet!

iOS 9.3.3 has many improvements on its own. A JB will never make the device more stable or provide better battery life.
Glad you're happy with it, it's a good choice for many.
But not a wise choice for those on older untethered JB versions IMO.

Unwise why? Other than the certificate renewal in April 2017 which I didn't mind re-plugging once a week it's how I charge up anyway. We could be jailbreaking iOS 10 next April or at the least reading the whiners in the forums because no 10 jb yet!
