Untethered Jailbreak 1.4.1 aka ‘UntetherHomeDepot’ Released for iOS 9.1-9.3.4 [How to Install]
Prolific jailbreak developer timhstar has released the enhanced version of his jailbreak with untether functionality extended to iOS 9.2.1 32-bit devices. It was earlier known as 'BetterHomeDepot' with its support limited to 32-bit iOS 9.3.3 and 9.3.4 devices.
The untethered jailbreak v1.4.1 has now been renamed as 'UntetherHomeDepot' with a bunch of bug-fixes, feature enhancements and support for older iOS firmware versions.
iOS 9.2.1 was initially jailbroken semi-untethered on 64-bit devices, thanks to the Pangu team. However, the advent of UntetherHomeDepot jailbreak has unlocked root access to 32-bit devices on the older iOS firmware.
The jailbreak community is apparently downbeat about cracking root access on Apple's newest iOS firmware (iOS 11) as the industrious jailbreak developers are still working hard to release a fully-functional hack for iOS 10.2.1. Consequently, the jailbreak scene was presumed to be dead until the recent development and progress with the ziVA exploits.
We just hope that the veteran jailbreak developers will be ready when Apple finally rolls out the iOS 11 Final Release on September 12 along with the grand unveiling of its next-gen flagship iPhones.
Meanwhile, here's a simple step-by-step guide explaining how you can download and install UntetherHomeDepot (v1.4.1) on your iOS device:
