There are very good news for 32-bit device owners who are stuck on iOS 9.3.5. The downgrade to a jailbreakable iOS version will be possible soon as a group of developers including alitek12, ee_csw and Trevor Schmitt are currently working on a tool which will enable users to return to iOS 9.
This concerns iOS users whose 32- bit devices do not support iOS 10, therefore the latest iOS version they can run is iOS 9.3.5, which is not a jailbreakable firmware.
Here are some important highlights about this tool:
With this tool coming soon you will be able to downgrade your from iOS 9.3.5 to jailbreakable iOS 9 versions such as iOS 9.0.2 or iOS 9.2-9.3.4 without the need to jailbreak your device, but the primary requirement remains to have saved iOS 9 blobs.
If you want to upgrade a lower iOS version, you can move to iOS 9.3.5 and then use this tool downgrade to the jailbreakable iOS 9.3.4. Keep in mind that the downgrade is possible only on 32-bit devices which run iOS 9.3.5 and not 32-bit device running iOS 10.
In case your jailbreak doesn’t work properly and you are forced to restore to iOS 9.3.5, you can use the tool to downgrade to iOS 9.3.4 afterwards and jailbreak again.
This tools unlocks the capability of actually moving to any iOS version you want. If you use it to downgrade to a jailbreakable iOS 9 version, then you can move to any other iOS firmware using a tool called Odysseus or OdysseusOTA. This is possible only if you have saved blobs for the destination firmware.
Here are some examples uses of this downgrade tool:
1. You can restore an iPad 2 running iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 9.3.4 and jailbreak it with Home Depot
2. You can restore an iPhone 5 running iOS 9.3.5 to iOS 9.0.2 and jailbreak it with Pangu9.
3. You can upgrade from iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.5 on iPhone 4s and then downgrade to iOS 9.3.4 to jailbreak with Home Depot.
4. You can jailbreak and iPad Mini stuck on iOS 8.4.1 by upgrading to iOS 9.3.5 and then downgrade to iOS 2.3.2. After jailbreaking with Home Depot use Odysseus to downgrade to a preferred lower iOS version (e.g iOS 7.1.2) and jailbreak with Pangu7.
This tool provides nearly limitless capabilities to escape non-jailbreakable iOS versions and move to any desired firmware. As the tool is currently under development, there are no more details that can be made public until it is officially released to the jailbreak community. What matters is that soon all jailbreak enthusiasts who have 32-bit device running iOS versions that cannot be jailbroken
