Prospective iOS 9 users are in for some great news as Liang Chen of the elite hacking group, Keen Team, has revealed in an official interview with Forbes' Thomas Fox-Brewster that they are eagerly waiting to release the first ever jailbreak for iOS 9.

It is ascertained that the Keen Team is currently working on the recently released iOS 9 Developer Preview or beta version with plans of acquiring support from the popular Pangu Team for further developmental work.

This should come as some big news for the jailbreak community as they have been deprived of new jailbreaks in the last six months, following the highly-rumoured rootless security feature that is expected with iOS 9.

According to iPhone Hacks, several industry experts and hackers have already acknowledged the existence of such a rootless security feature in OS X El Capitan beta with traces of the same in iOS 9.

Although the new security feature is expected to make jailbreaking difficult, the 12-member Keen Team sounds positive of overcoming this challenge.

With plaudits of winning more than $60,000 in Mobile Pwn2Own competitions for a few of its immaculate jailbreaking feats such as rooting Galaxy S6 or hacking mobile Safari, the Keen Team looks to be a highly-promising team.

Recent rumours point to a probable release of iOS 8.3 or iOS 8.4 jailbreak by 30 June, while there is still no clarity on the expected release window for the much awaited iOS 9 jailbreak.
