Apple Blocks Pangu Jailbreak Exploits With Release of iOS 9.1

Apple has blocked exploits used by the Pangu Jailbreak with the release of iOS 9.1.

Pangu was able to jailbreak iOS 9.0 to 9.0.2; however, in Apple's document on the security content of iOS 9.1, PanguTeam is credited with discovering two vulnerabilities that have been patched.

Be careful not to update to iOS 9.1 if you want a jailbreak. The signing window for iOS 9.0.2 is still open so if you are on a lower firmware version it is still possible to install iOS 9.0.2 for a limited time.

Downgrade or upgrade to 9.0.2 if you interested in having jailbreak
