Update has come from MOSEC security conference in Shanghai where Pangu team has demonstrated the jailbreak of iOS 8.3. This is posted on Tools4Hack a Japanese website. They claim that Pangu Team has demonstrated an iOS 8.3 jailbreak by referring to Pangu team member Daniel_K4.
From the report it also appears that final Pangu jailbreak may not be released immediately because Apple is soon releasing iOS 8.4 so we might need to wait until next version is released and in that case we shall be happy to experience jailbreak for iOS 8.4 instead of jailbreaking 8.3.
“If I had to take a guess, since the pangu team is the kind of team to put out jail break tools pretty quickly, depending on the development situation. once ios8.4 is released, they should definitely have a jail break in a couple of days.”
“But, on the 8th (japan time 9th at 2am), the official iOS 8.4 release date is to be announced, so all we can do in the mean time is wait.”
This good news has again put lot of discussion in jailbreak community about the recent demonstration given by i0nic in which he was showing the Cydia running on iOS 8.4 beta 1 which means there might be competition between Pangu Team and i0nic team to achieve the iOS 8.4 jailbreak and its public release.
Still we have not seen any update from Taig team who are currently owners of latest available jailbreak for iOS 8.0, 8.1.2 and 8.2 beta 2. We also request them to come in the picture and let us know what they are doing to jailbreak iOS 8.4 or 8.3 at the moment.
Update: In a recent interview by a TaiG team member Ray Xie which he has given to iDigitalTimes he said, “We currently haven’t any plans to release a jailbreak prior to iOS 9.” Xie also said that “We have no plan to jailbreak Apple Watch at this time. Apple Watch is a new product. We don’t know too much about its users’ demands. What’s more, we are not quite clear about whether it is suitable or necessary to jailbreak an Apple watch. Time will tell all that.”
It looks that TaiG team is looking for a difficult task which is to jailbreak iOS 9 and the next major iOS version is claimed to be based upon rootless security system and therefore seems impossible to jailbreak iOS 9.
