ios_9_iconAs of today, Apple has stopped signing iOS 9.0.2 for compatible iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models, meaning users can no longer upgrade or downgrade to that version of iOS using iTunes. Apple is now signing iOS 9.1 and later only.

With Apple no longer signing iOS 9.0.2, those who wish to downgrade to jailbreak their devices are not able to do so. iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users with jailbroken devices will need to refrain from updating beyond iOS 9.0.2 as the iOS 9.1 update fixes the exploits used for the jailbreak.

The untethered iOS 9 jailbreak was released for iOS devices just two weeks ago on October 14 by Pangu. It works for iOS 9, iOS 9.0.1, and iOS 9.0.2.

"Downgrading" is the wrong term.

A user cannot upgrade to 9.0.2, either.

Upgrade/downgrade is irrelevant. The installation is simply not allowed.

Always like that.

Totally cannot understand why they allow users to do Internet recovery to downgrade to older version of Mac OS X while prohibit users to do the same on iOS.

What kills me is no longer being able to restore to the same version I'm on.

So glad I upgraded my iPad mini 2 to 9.0.2, and jailbroke it, a few days ago.

Now, excuse me as this fat nerd goes back to doing nothing. :rolleyes:

What's left besides

Torrents
Theming
Tethering

That people still bother to jailbreak for?

Apple pretty much sucked up and baked into iOS everything useful already I thought?
F.lux and color temperature control of the LED backlighting. Never mind impacting sleep, it significantly reduces eye strain to have this flexible. Also I had unlimited data until recently on Verizon. Limiting what files I could download and forcing me to connect to wifi diluted the usefulness. Now that I'm on T-Mobile I still wish I had the right to watch my iTunes movies and download files over 100 MB should I choose to do so. Apple says: no.
