Apple Discontinues Signing iOS 8.4.1 And iOS 9.0, Downgrades No Longer Potential

After releasing a whole lot of updates to-day, specifically OSX 10.11 El Capitan, iOS 9.0.2 and iOS 9.1 beta 3 for both programmers and community beta-testers, Apple has now shut the signing window of iOS 8.4.1 for all iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

Not only has Apple shut the signing window for iOS 8.4.1, but also for iOS 9.0 which was introduced just about two weeks past. The signing window for iOS 9.0 though presently seems to be shut just for the newest iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but it wouldn’t be too long now before they shut it for all other devices as well.


Strangely enough, iOS 9.0.1 is still being signed.

So is this a huge deal? Shutting of signing window for iOS 8.4.1 and 9.0 means you can no longer downgrade your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to these firmware variations. For jailbreakers, this is a huge offer because evidently there’s a jailbreak in the works for iOS 8.4.1 which is rumored to be nearing launch. However, now that Apple has ceased signing 8.4.1, it indicates anybody who hasn’t downgraded to 8.4.1 from any edition of iOS 9.x can no longer downgrade to 8.4.1 and jailbreak, if or when the jailbreak is provided.

In the event you are on iOS 9.0 or 9.0.1 appropriate now, it’s better to update to nowadays’s iOS 9.0.2 release as it fixes a number of bugs and patches a vital lock display bypass susceptibility. It’s possible for you to download iOS 9.0.2 from here: Down Load iOS 9.0.2 Hyperlinks For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch [IPSW].

People who are on iOS 8.4.1 and value jail breaking, sit tight and wait for the jailbreak launch. We’ll clearly tell you whenever it’s made accessible for community usage.
