    The developer of the Phœnix 9.3.5 Jailbreak and other projects, tihmstar, has just released an untethered 32-bit 8.4.1 jailbreak. The Jailbreak is called "Etason JB"

    This will only work on 32-bit devices. If you have a 32-bit device, you can downgrade to 8.4.1 without SHSH blobs by following this guide
    If you downgrade from iOS 9 to iOS 8.4.1, you must Erase all content and settings before you can install EtasonJB

    You can only downgrade to 6.1.3 and 8.4.1 on Jailbroken 32-bit devices
    This is useful because there is currently no untethered jailbreak for 32bit iOS 9 devices, however with this jailbreak, we'll still be able to use most up-to-date applications while having an untethered jailbreak.

    Download it here! http://tihmstar.net/etasonjb/

    Just a heads up, the jailbreak is very unstable at the moment.
    Me and many other users have had issues with the icon cache.

    Fixed with etasonJB

    iOS 6.1.3, it has a stable untethered jailbreak.
    If apps you want to use are not supported on iOS 6, stay on 9.3.5.
    I don't recommend using the iOS 8.4.1 jailbreak yet as it's currently broken.

    You seem like a good person to ask, I'm on a iPad JB 7.0 (plus or minus a revision) that I never upated in time. I don't really want another Apple device, but an JB upgrade for more games woud be nice (I have 2 boardgames from KS that I can't install). Is an upgrade possible, without 9.3.5 which looks too annoying?

    I believe all 32-bit devices from 6.0 to 7.0.6 update to 8.4.1 before updating to 9.3.5.
