iOS 9.3.4 has been released with a bunch of important security improvements. With iOS 9.3.4 Apple stopped the recent Pangu jailbreak. We’re talking about the recently released PPHelper jailbreak that Pangu Team released along with PP Assistant Team. The jailbreak, which covers iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak, was released about a month after it was hinted at during MOSEC in July 2016, at a conference that Pangu co-hosted.

If you haven’t already used it to jailbreak your iOS device, check out the requirements and the instructions to download PPHelper at the given link. It is worth noting here that it is not compatible with nor will it work on any 32-bit device.
If you have already updated to iOS 9.3.4 but want to go back to the jailbreak you have a very small window of opportunity left to downgrade iOS 9.3.4 [ext link] – Apple is still signing iOS 9.3.3 but not for much longer. So do it now while you can. If you haven’t updated to iOS 9.3.4, it doesn’t contain any bug fixes, it’s purely to patch the previous jailbreak so, if you don’t need to update, don’t.

PPHelper iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Release Date :
The fact that Apple would patch the recent Pangu Jailbreak was never in doubt; it was always going to be a question of when, not if. The fact that it has come so quickly also isn’t too much of a surprise to some. Italian hacker and developer, Luca Todesco, said that the jailbreak had already been patched in the iOS 10 betas and that iOS 9.3.4 took some time to be released considering the fix was already there in iOS 10.

Whether we will see another public jailbreak before iOS 10 release is debatable but we have absolutely no doubt that Pangu is already delving into iOS 9.3.4 to see if they can find any new vulnerabilities to play with and release Pangu 9.3.4 jailbreak tool. We already know that jailbreaking is only going to get harder thanks to a new security system called Rootless in iOS 10 so every little crumb that Pangu can find for us is a bonus. There is also no guarantee, if Pangu does find any vulnerabilities, that they will release a jailbreak quickly.
Download PPHelper :
Our advice to you is this – if you have used PPHelper to jailbreak, stay where you are and don’t upgrade to iOS 9.3.4 download [ext link]. If you haven’t gotten around to jailbreaking yet do it now while you can and if you upgraded to iOS 9.3.4, you have a slim window in which to downgrade your firmware.
iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Success :
Update : iOS 9.3.4 can be jailbroken, as we have seen from an image uploaded to Twitter [ext link] by Luca Todesco. While attending DEF CON Todesco has tweeted a photograph that shows an iPhone 6S running a jailbroken version of iOS 9.3.4. Don’t expect to be able to use it though because he is not known for sharing his jailbreaks publicly. While Pangu has admitted that they will not be making PPHelper fully untethered nor will it ever support the 32-bit device, we do know that they are working on the next Pangu 9.3.4 jailbreak. What we don’t know is whether that will be fully untethered or when it will be released but, as soon as we know, the details will be passed on to you.
