K33N Team has announced its presence in the filed of jailbreaking by announcing to work for iOS 9 jailbreak in collaboration with PanGu Team, although they are already working about hacking the smartphones and finding the vulnerabilities in Android world, but in the department of jailbreaking it is their first entry which might be a difficult job.

The news came through Forbes where they have given much details about the Keen Team code named K33n Team and their plans for releasing the K33N tool to jailbreak iOS 9.

One of the crew’s researchers, Liang Chen, said Keen Team (alternatively spelled K33n Team) wanted to release its first ever jailbreak, possibly with the assistance of another nonpareil group of Chinese hackers, Team Pangu.

K33N & iOS 9 Jailbreak

Jailbreakers Welcome K33N Plan

Jailbreak community must be happy to know that a new team is in for jailbreaking iOS 9. There are thousands of users who are not interested in new devices only because they can not take risk of using new versions and there is no jailbreak available for iOS 8.3 and 8.4. We saw a demonstration about the iOS 8.3 jailbreak but still no public release is seen from any team which means everybody is looking to jailbreak 9 instead of utilizing their loophole findings in jailbreaking 8.4 or 8.3.

When iOS 9 Jailbreak Will Come?

Obviously after the release of iOS 9 for public use and we hope that as early as possible this task shall be done and it is also indicated by Chen when asked about the release of K33N iOS 9 Jailbreak Tool:

“We want to release it just after iOS 9, that’s our plan,” Chen added. “It depends how lucky we are.”

As of now if you have not upgraded to new versions due to non availability of tool to jailbreak iOS 8.3 we recommend to keep away from upgrading because still iOS 8.4 jailbreak is not confirmed by authentic sources and iOS 9 jailbreak is also not possible until the final version is released for public.
