Users on the lookout for an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak tool can still opt to get their hopes up. While iOS 9.3.1 is successful in fixing issues that plagued iOS 9.3, both versions are said to be in the same level of security.

According to Neurogadget, hackers using "certain vulnerability" in iOS 9.3 to develop a jailbreak tool can replicate the process through the same weak spot in iOS 9.3.1. Hacker Luca Todesco, for instance, is able to jailbreak a device that runs on the fifth beta of iOS 9.3, sparking hope for others.

The jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 and earlier firmwares are specifically expected before June 13, Neurogadget says in another article. However, The Country Caller is convinced that this could even be earlier, considering the tricky tug-of-war between Apple and jailbreakers. The outlet says by the time bugs in iOS 9.3 are fixed in iOS 9.3.2, jailbreak can finally be expected.

As per iPhone Hacks, Apple users can currently jailbreak iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1, iOS 9.0.2 and iOS 9.1 through Pangu. The jailbreak for iOS 9 to iOS 9.0.2 supports the following devices: iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPhone 4s, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad 4, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, Retina iPad mini, 1st gen iPad mini, 6th generation iPod Touch and 5th generation iPod touch.

Meanwhile the Pangu iOS 9.1 jailbreak supports iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad Air, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and 6th generation iPod touch. Pangu tools can be downloaded here.

While jailbreaking is legal, it does not come without risks, so it is important to understand the process before initiating the tool. Nevertheless, jailbreak is also removable, done by restoring the device via iTunes.

Meanwhile, an alternative to an iOS 9.3.1 jailbreak is available in the form of Mojo, an app-based installer with Cydia-like content. Redmond Pie provides a quick guide on how to get it here.
