Home Depot RC2 32-bit jailbreak update released for iOS 9.1-9.3.4

Second Release Candidate (RC2) version of Home Depot 32-bit jailbreak has just been released for iOS 9.1-9.3.4 users, signalling the imminent arrival of its final release in the next few days. It may be recalled that the initial release of Home Depot jailbreak introduced support for 32-bit iOS devices running iOS 9.3.1 through iOS 9.3.4.

Power-hungry iOS users would be yearning to learn about the new feature changes added to Home Depot RC2. Here is the complete changelog as depicted on the tool's official site for the convenience of users:

  • 3 bonus tracks for the Mixtape Player.
  • Mixtape Player now displays song lyrics.
  • Seek backwards in Mixtape Player.
  • Rearrange tracks in Up Next in Mixtape Player.
  • Fixes an issue where the volume slider in Mixtape Player would not appear on some devices.
  • Fixes an issue where the Home Depot label would not be aligned properly while at the launch screen.
  • Saves a jailbreak log, which is available in iTunes File Sharing.
  • No longer extracts "iosbinpack".
  • No longer installs Droplets wallpaper.
  • Treats "Enable Jailbreak" as "Prepare For Jailbreak", by re-extracting Cydia when the "/.installed_home_depot" file is not present.
  • Support for every 32-bit device on iOS 9.1-9.3.4.
    (Beta feature: requires an internet connection).
  • Improved reliability on iPod touch 5.

The new RC2 update clearly brings several stability fixes to the tool's bundled mixtape player, alongside a couple of jailbreak-related tweaks and bug-fixes for an improved compatibility with all 32-bit iOS devices including the iPod Touch 5.

Similar to Yalu102, Yalu1011 and Pangu 9.2-9.3.3, this jailbreak is semi-tethered and hence requires re-activation after each reboot of the device. The tool can be sideloaded via Cydia Impactor along the lines of Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10, but it carries the same 7-day signing limitation as seen in the Yalu hack tool.

Home Depot RC2 is undoubtedly a complete jailbreak for iOS 9.1-9.3.4 as it includes working Cydia, Cydia Substrate and all the other expected features of a fully-working jailbreak. Interested users may go ahead and download the tool via official Home Depot website and then sideload it with Cydia Impactor for Linux, Mac or Windows.
