Pangu remains silent days after the iOS 10.3.2 rollout, said to be the cue that the Chinese hacking group is waiting for before releasing a jailbreak solution that supposedly will work on firmware versions 10.3 and 10.3.1. With the crack still not in sight, the wait is likely to last until August 2017, at the earliest, new reports said.

And most likely, the next jailbreak release will not necessarily originate from Team Pangu. WCCFTech reported that "iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak is on its way," the projection based on the revelation by security researcher Adam Donenfeld. Donenfeld claimed that his team has identified at least eight possible exploits to jailbreak iOS 10.3.1 and one will be released to the public in August.

Apple has been informed of the exploits and the tech giant has responded accordingly. When iOS 10.3.2 was deployed at the start of the week seven of the exploits pinpointed by Donenfeld's team have been patched. And the one that remains unpatched will be shared to interested parties, and they can start from there like cook up a working jailbreak perhaps.

Essentially, the Donenfeld revelation is saying that an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak is possible. The researcher though did not commit to provide the solution to the public, meaning someone else has to pick up from the August announcement of the remaining exploit and put together a jailbreak.

That translates to a longer waiting time, in case Pangu will not be releasing its version of the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak anytime soon. But the good news is, the same hacking group can will have another opening once the Donenfeld exploit is revealed, which also applies to other jailbreak creator.

So from August onwards, the possibility of an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak release will significantly improve. For sure, other hackers will pick up the exploit that Donenfeld will share to at least check if indeed a crack is possible. The names Luca Todesco and TaiG quickly come to mind, and that's saying it's fair to expect the next jailbreak not only from Pangu but also from other reliable and trusted sources as well.

For now, the waiting game is on and Redmond Pie highly recommends the saving of SHSH2 blobs. For those who made the jump to firmware 10.3.2 this week, now is the time to downgrade as Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.1. For those already on the targeted firmware, it's best to stay still and look forward.

It might be that the promised jailbreak release from Team Pangu will be delayed again but the horizon indicates that an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak is touching down in the coming months, and there will be multiple providers of the solution.
