Currently I am on ios 9.2, now ios 10.2 is released and there are news that ios 10.2 cannot be jailbreaked while there is a chance of ios 10.1.1 jailbreak. Now should I upgrade to 10.1.1 (as signing window is still open) or should I stay on ios 9.2??? Any suggestion...

Hello Amoos, Apple patched some very high security threats in iOS 9.3.5. You should have already updated your iPhone. If Apple is still signing it, you can update to 9.3.5, otherwise update to 10.1.1 if you are expecting jailbreak.
