  • Apple releases iOS 9.3.4 to the public


    Apple has just released iOS 9.3.4 with what it describes as security fixes. This most likely means it patches the recent 9.3.3 Pangu jailbreak so if you want to jailbreak do not update. If you were on the fence about going to 9.3.3 from a previous jailbreak now would be the time while Apple is still signing 9.3.3, just make sure you do not accidentally go to 9.3.4. Update manually in iTunes by downloading the 9.3.3 firmware and shift/option restore to the ipsw that you downloaded.

      Looks like I will stay on my jailbroken 9.0.2 since it is working well. I am just not comfortable with the longevity of the semi-tethered one for 9.3.3.

      Seems silly with iOS 10 coming in September alongside new iOS devices. Perhaps they want to prevent jailbreakers from taking advantage of our opportunity. Timing doesn't seem coincidental. LoL

      I think it has more to do with the nature of the exploit this jailbreak uses. it is done with a regular app that is installed on your device, could potentially be really dangerous. Think about a app slipping through the cracks and making it into the app store with the ability to root your device and have access to pretty much whatever. Would be bad news for Apple.

      Hopefully it does and to a million people and then they all get together in a class action suit and sue Apple for every penny they have because their crap software allowed it in the first place. All of this could be avoided if they just let you make some minor changes like evrybody else does instead of force feeding you what a bunch of idiots think you want or need.

      I was in 9.0.2 since january and just update two weeks to 9.3.3 to jailbreak, software feels a lot better and smoother than 9.0.2 I would say is worth it to update.

      I knew it was coming. Just upgraded to 9.3.3 earlier today and applied the Pangu JB.
      I've JB'd my iPhones since the first JB.

      I disagree. I went from 9.0.2 to 9.3.3 and regret it. 9.0.2 is more stable. You can reboot your phone without having to worry about rejailbreaking every time. Or the cert expiring. Or apps/tweaks being updated to work. 9.0.2 is the best. I should have stayed on it.

      9.3.3 as a base firmware is much more stable than 9.0.2. Once tweaks get updated with full support for 9.3.3 it will be the better firmware to be on. Having to tap the screen twice, press the power button and wait 30 seconds after a reboot isn't really a big deal, and as long as you get a 1 year cert installed you really don't have to worry about that either, least not for a year.

      That being said if you feel better on 9.0.2 that is totally fine, been working all this time and should continue to do so. Really just a personal choice.

      I was on 9.0.2 with my iPhone 6S Plus and noted it was getting glitchy. Part of the reason i updated to 9.3.3 as soon as the JB dropped. I must say 9.3.3 is AWESOME IMO. It is much smoother and faster for me. Cydia is lightning fast and robust. Im hoping iOS 10 is just as fast and furious.

      I would say it depends on device. I have a iPad Air on 8.4 which runs like a dream. U know how newer firmwares affect older devices cmon now.

      I was comparing 9.3.3 to 9.0.2. Not to 8.4. 8.4 would also be a very stable firmware seeing as it is a X.4, and would probably run better on older devices than 9.X would. Biggest loss for staying on 8.4 would be apps that require 9.X firmware, and any iOS 9 features anyone may want.

      I gotta say I had my iPad Air on 8.4 and I thought about it but I made the jump to 9.3.3...

      8.4 was running fine but I hated the white SB screen every so often (GB+)....9.3.3 is running so much better I'm glad I upgraded...it does run smoother and the tweaks I like have been updated (that's what held up at first)...haven't had the need to reboot but once (iFile locked up on me)...but re-enabling the jailbreak with the pangu tool was very easy, fast and smooth...no issues whatsoever...

      My 6s is on 9.0.2 thou...and that's because I'm one of the lucky ones with a very good and stable jailbreak...the only time I had random resprings was a few months ago when it seemed everyone was having issues with updating weather due to the yahoo issue I guess...but since I haven't had a random respring at all...not one safe mode...with about 20 tweaks that are all running great...battery life is just as good...I don't see myself upgrading right now...

      But like I said...my iPad Air runs a lot better on 9.3.3...

      I'm gonna preface this reply with: All of you "OG's" of MMI KNOW I've never been one of those "complainer members" in ALL my years here...

      But Man this sucks! The idea that my jailbreak would now depend on some certs that APPLE could eventually revoke at whichever point in time that they see fit doesn't sit too well with me...(I would if I were them) I mean us forward thinking JB'ers (most of us here at MMI who've stuck it out all this time) WE really enjoy our JB'n iDevices, but we also thoroughly enjoy the idea of the security that has always been a given on our devices.(insert Apple and their hell naw not on OUR device mindset here).

      I'd rather have an outdated iOS system on my iP6+ and other devices once the new iPhone etc drop than be stuck on a now vanilla device after APPLE decides to revoke the certificate we've been using for 9.3.3... I could care less about having to re-jail break after a reboot if it means I could be JB'n it's just the fact that we are really at the mercy of APPLE waiting for if and when they decide to pull the plug. With an independent JB the choice to stay would be ours as long as we DIDNT update the iOS. -*see my iP5 on 8. Something happily JB'n and STILL functioning!

      I'm not gonna say the site is gonna die in not gonna say I'm jumping ship because of no JB, but I will say this whole run up to release, then the design of this specific jailbreak all coupled with the state of affairs in the JB community now after the release looks pretty damn bleak! I keep hope alive that someone with more time and far more talented than myself will jump out of the wood works with a new non dependent JB because optimism only goes so far when you are more of a realist....#jussayin.....

      Here's to maintaining the idea and hope that JB will comeback bigger and better than before.
