Apple has just killed iOS 9.0.2 by no longer signing the firmware for restores on iPhones, iPads and iPod touches.

Apple released iOS 9.1 last week, patching Pangu iOS 9.0-9.0.2 jailbreak in the process. And today, Apple has stopped signing the iOS 9.0.2 firmware, which means you can now no longer upgrade or downgrade to iOS 9.0.2.

So why is this important? Well, if you care about jailbreaking, it is important to know now that the latest Pangu 9 jailbreak only works on iOS 9.0-9.0.2. If you are on a compatible iOS firmware for Pangu 9, you are all good, but if you aren’t, well you have just missed your chance to jailbreak as downgrading or upgrading to jailbreak-friendly iOS 9.0, 9.0.1 and now 9.0.2 is no longer possible.

If you’re jailbroken on iOS 9.x.x, just stay on your current firmware and don’t upgrade to iOS 9.1. Currently, there’s no public jailbreak available for iOS 9.1. You have been warned.

If you are on iOS 9.0.2 and haven’t jailbroken yet, you can find the instructions on how-to do so here using Pangu 9 tool, which is now available for both Windows and Mac OS X:
