Hacker demos iOS 9.3.2 browser-based jailbreak

A couple of days ago we reported to you that iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak was teased by hacker called Luca Todesco. Luca the Italian hacker is once again making waves in the jailbreak community. He has just released another video, which shows he can successfully jailbreak an iPhone running iOS 9.3.2 using Mobile Safari.

Similar to the now classic JailbreakMe, the method used by Todesco can apparently jailbreak the device directly from Safari, without requiring a computer.

What’s so special about this demo is that the jailbreak shown in the video is JailbreakMe-style web browser-based. If you have been involved in the jailbreak scene for a while, you’ll know what that is all about.

Todesco has clarified that “stashing is disabled, that’s why Cydia doesn’t prep filesystems”.

Unfortunately, we don’t expect him to release a jailbreak. It does give us hope that jailbreak teams like Pangu or TaiG can figure out a way to jailbreak iOS 9.3.2 using Mobile Safari.

The latest iOS version that can be jailbroken currently is iOS 9.1. Back in October, Pangu Team released a new version of their popular Pangu Jailbreak tool to jailbreak iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2. Apple responded quickly to kill the Pangu Jailbreak by releasing iOS 9.1, which patched several vulnerabilities used by the jailbreak tool. It continued patching some more exploits in iOS 9.2 and iOS 9.2.1 used in the Pangu Jailbreak. But Pangu team responded recently, by releasing a new version of their Pangu Jailbreak tool to jailbreak iOS 9.1. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work with iOS 9.2, iOS 9.2.1, iOS 9.3, iOS 9.3.1 or iOS 9.3.2.

Earlier this week, Todesco had already teased a jailbreak for the latest beta of iOS 9.3.3. That jailbreak won’t likely see the light of the day either, so don’t get your hopes too high for that.
