After a long dry spell with no public jailbreak, Pangu finally released PPHelper to jailbreak iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3. The jailbreak followed the Mobile Security conference [ MOSEC ]that Pangu co-hosted in July 2016 and during which they hinted at the possibility of the new jailbreak. PPHelper was released shortly after iOS 9.3.3 but was patched up again almost immediately with iOS 9.3.4 download [ext link]. The latest iOS version was released purely as a patch for the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak and contained no other improvements, enhancements or bug fixes and, as such, if you don’t need to update and you want to preserve your jailbreak, do not update your device to iOS 9.3.4.

iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Release Date :
At the moment we can’t answer that but we do know that a jailbreak is possible. Luca Todesco, prominent Italian iPhone jailbreaker and iOS developer has, once again, released proof [image below] that the latest iOS version can be jailbroken. While attempting DEFCON , the hacker uploaded a teaser photo to Twitter [ext link], an image that showed an iPhone on iOS 9.3.4 and running Cydia. However, as we have come to expect with Todesco, this jailbreak will not be released to the public, at least not by Todesco himself.
Instead, we must wait for Pangu to finish their work on iOS 9.3.4 and determine whether or not they will release a jailbreak utility. In all likelihood, if an iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak is possible, they will release one but we have to keep in mind that the public release of iOS 10 is just a few weeks away and the team may prefer to put all of their energy into that. Just because there may be an exploit or two that hasn’t been patched by iOS 9.3.4 doesn’t automatically mean that Pangu will use them. They may want to see if iOS 10 patches those exploits first and, if not they will at least have a head start on a jailbreak for the next generation iOS firmware.

Yes, but only for a very short while. Apple is still signing iOS 9.3.3 but, given that iOS 9.3.4 was only released as a jailbreak killer, the chances are they will not sign it for much longer. If you have upgraded and you want to downgrade iOS 9.3.4 to iOS 9.3.3 [ext link], do it now while the door is still open.
