iOS 9.3.4 has been released just two weeks after iOS 9.3.3 and there is only one reason for it. The release notes indicate that the update is to provide important security updates and it comes hot on the heels of the latest jailbreak, PPHelper [ext link] for iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3 Jailbreak. PPHelper was a joint effort by Pangu and PP Assistant and it was released about a month after Pangu hinted at it during MOSEC in July.

Should I Update to iOS 9.3.4 ?
Not if you want to jailbreak using PPHelper. For those of you that have already updated to iOS 9.3.4 download [ext link], you only have a very small window of time in which to downgrade iOS 9.3.4 to 9.3.3 [ext link] before Apple stops signing it. If you haven’t updated to iOS 9.3.4 and you want to jailbreak your device, you can do so using our step by step guide, including download links. The iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak [ext link] using PPHelper is only providing support for Windows computers at this stage, although we are sure a Mac version will be released in good time and it will only work on 64-bit devices.
About iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak :
With iOS 9.3.4 only just released it is a bit soon to be thinking about a jailbreak. However, Taig and Pangu may well be looking into the new update to see if there is any way to jailbreak it. Even if there is, though, don’t be surprised if they don’t release one. Right now, with iOS 10 on beta 4, we only have a few weeks left before the new firmware is released and no doubt the teams will want to expend more energy on that firmware, rather than any more for iOS 9.
iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Release Date :
The best thing to do is get your device onto iOS 9.3.3 download [ext link], install PPHelper [ linked above ] on it and stay there until such a time as there is a new iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak [ext link] or iOS 10 jailbreak. At the end of the day, these jailbreaks are released free of charge and we must not put the teams under pressure to produce one for every firmware version. As time goes on, it is becoming harder to produce jailbreaks and we may have to be content with less than we are used to.
iOS 9.3.4 Jailbreak Success :
Update : Although Apple may have thought they’d got the better of jailbreaking when they patched PPHelper with iOS 9.3.4, they didn’t because it would appear that they left a few more security holes wide open. While attending DEF CON, Luca Todesco has tweeted [ext link] proof of an iOS 9.3.4 jailbreak with a photo of a jailbroken iPhone 6 on iOS 9.3.4 [image below]. While this is not going to be released as a public jailbreak, with Pangu now working on a new jailbreak for iOS 9.3.4, we can only hope that we will see the results soon. When we do, we will let you have all the details and download links.
