How to Update from iOS 9 Jailbreak to iOS 9.1

If you’ve decided to update to iOS 9.1 and lose your iOS 9 jailbreak, here’s how to properly update to iOS 9.1.

iOS 9.1 was released earlier today and is by no means a super big update, but it does come with a handful of bug fixes and other improvements across the board. Perhaps the most notable new feature is the 150+ new emojis users can now enjoy, including the middle finger emoji that many iOS users have been waiting for.

This is a nice update for iPhone and iPad users, but the update also fixes Pangu’s iOS 9 jailbreak, forcing jailbreakers to stay away from the latest version of iOS for now until Pangu finds another exploit.

If you’re dealing with iOS 9 jailbreak but want to update to iOS 9.1, you can do it pretty easily. Most jailbreakers don’t even want to touch iOS 9.1 as it will erase their jailbreak. However, we don’t blame you if you really want that middle finger emoji.

Currently, there is not much risk if you want to update to iOS 9.1 and lose your jailbreak, because you can still downgrade to iOS 9.0.2 if you want, because Apple is still signing the old version. However, in a few weeks this will not be the case.

So, if you want to update to iOS 9.1 and are comfortable with losing your iOS 9 jailbreak, here is how to properly update to iOS 9.1.

At this point, it’s not clear and no one really knows when an iOS 9.1 jailbreak will be released. However, it’s likely that the Pangu dev team is currently looking at iOS 9.1 and trying to find vulnerabilities they can use to get into the latest update to jailbreak it.

The only problem is, we probably won’t get instant updates until they move forward, so we wouldn’t be surprised if an iOS 9.1 jailbreak is released without warning. jailbreak releases.
