Apple Stops Signing iOS 9.3, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Apple Stops Signing iOS 9.3, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Posted April 18, 2016 at 8:12pm by iClarified
Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.3 following the release of iOS 9.3.1.

If you want to stay on iOS 9.3 take care that you do not accidentally update because you won't be able to get back down. While there hasn't been a jailbreak since iOS 9.1, having a lower firmware version installed could increase your chances of being able to jailbreak in the future.

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

There goes jailbreaker. While they're still working on jailbreak IOS 9.3, apple closed it. Starting over from 0 hour again

They would Only need to start from 0 if Apple have closed what holes the jailbreakers have found in 9.3 in 9.3.1, which would be unlikely as there hasn't been a public release of a jailbreak for 9.3, I'm sure there will be a jailbreak out soon for an iOS version that's still being signed

hm, I lost my hope for jailbreak. Apple also lost my money for iphone. I stuck on 9.0.1 and until this 6 plus gets outdated I'm not buying anymore this product. Not that android is wonderful but I might look into it. Sad story that jailbreaking is almost dead, no more a bunch of groups working on it, people lost interest apparently. It was nice since iphone 1 but now iphone is just a closed system like those toy phones for kids. No thanks anymore.

Oh no! Does that mean we can't jailbreak anymore? Oh wait, we can't anyway. Lol.

What do you mean anymore? This is a rinse and repeat process: new iOS version released, new jailbreak made after some time has gone by, previous versions not signed anymore.
