Apple Stops Signing iOS 9.1, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Apple Stops Signing iOS 9.1, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Posted December 22, 2015 at 4:57pm by iClarified
Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.1.0 following the release of iOS 9.2.

If you want to stay on iOS 9.1.0 or earlier take care that you do not accidentally update because you won't be able to get back down. If you're still on iOS 9.0.2 and you do update you will not be able to jailbreak your device.

You may want to save the SHSH Blobs off your device if you haven't already.

There have been some rumors that a jailbreak of iOS 9.2 is in the works but no concrete evidence as of yet. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Never in the history of jailbreak tools has one come out on cmas day. Back in 7.0 Evaders released a tool 2 days after xmas. Closest JB tool ever to release near xmas. 60% of the JB tools has been released 1.5 months after iOS public release. So for 9.2 if it happens will be january based on statistics and logic

Umm its not shittifying if I jailbreak. I dont jailbreak to pirate apps. Some of us jailbreak to better the iphone. For example: attaching a damn zip file and sending it via email. Cant do that on stock but i can do that on a jailbroken iphone. I dont think giving my iphone the ability to send an email with a zip file should be deemed shittify buddy.

@kornmehl You don't know wtf ur talking about. Whether u jailbreak or not people can install pirated apps on a non jailbroken iPhone via vShare. Research before you speak and disrespect. Jailbreak is for tweaks. Pirated apps can be installed on non jailbroken iphones. It's actually easier to install pirated apps on non jailbroken iphones than jailbroken ones because you dont need to go through process of jailbreak.

Jailbreaking is done ONLY for piracy. No matter how many times you thieves protest, everyone knows the truth.

I need a jailbreak. At least release for 8.4.1, iOS 9 is horrible.

iOS 9.0.2 > 8.4.1. They seldom if ever back date jailbreaks, if another is to be released, it will be for 9.2. No point waiting at 8.4.1 or 9.1.

The oversized app switcher and San Francisco font are the main reasons why I am yet to upgrade. But I got my iPhone at 8.4.1 along with my iPad, even when 9.2 was out. (Replacement devices)

That doesn't matter, the hackers aren't working on a jailbreak for 8.4.1, Only 9.2 and possibly 9.1
