We’ve some good news for jailbreakers who are planning to install iOS 9, Apple’snext generation mobile operating system when it is released later this fall. Forbes reports that China’s Elite Hacker group who go by the name ‘Keen Team’ (alternatively spelled K33n Team) are working on an iOS 9 jailbreak.Liang Chen, one of the member’s of the Keen Team told Forbes that they’re hoping to release their first ever jailbreak later this fall. The Keen Team are one of the most respected hacker teams in the world. They might not have released a jailbreak yet, but they’ve a history of hacking iPhones. They have won over $65,000 at the 2013 and 2014 Mobile Pwn2Pwn competitions by breaking Apple’s Safari browser.They might also reach out to the Pangu team, another group of Chinese Hackers who have released jailbreak tools for iOS 7.1.2 and iOS 8 – iOS 8.1. They don’t plan to work with TaiG team, another group of Chinese hacker, who released a jailbreak for iOS 8.2.

Chen said that they’re currently prodding iOS 9 beta, which was seeded to developers earlier in the week, and hope to release a jailbreak just after iOS 9 is released to the public. He also said that the team wasn’t interested in the commercial aspects of jailbreaking, and were more interested in the technical challenge.

The entry of a reputable hacking group such as Keen Team should come as a relief to the jailbreak community, who have been worried about the new security feature called Rootless in iOS 9.

Few days back, TaiG team had also said that

they will be focusing on iOS 9 jailbreak as well. There is currently no jailbreak tool available to jailbreak iOS 8.3 – iOS 8.1.2, however Pangu Team had successfully demoed an iOS 8.3 jailbreak, and hope to release it after iOS 8.4 is released to the public.
