I suggest you to downgrade to iOS 9.1 and stick to it for some time. What if there is jailbreak for iOS 9.1 rather than 9.2? So downgrade it as soon as possible. If the jailbreak team releases the jailbreak for iOS 9.1, it will be difficult to downgrade later because Apple will stop signing iOS 9.1 at that time but if there is jailbreak for iOS 9.2, you can upgrade your iOS at anytime. Anyway here is step by step procedure on how to downgrade your iOS if you wish to do so.

Here’s how to downgrade your iPhone to iOS 9.1 from iOS 9.2
 First Download the iOS firmware file for your device from our Download page.
  • Turn off Find my iPhone & disable passcode lock via the Settings app. (Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone).
  • Launch iTunes & connect your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch using data cable to your computer.
  • Hold the Alt/Option key on the Mac or Shift Key in Windows on your keyboard and click on the Check for Update option, instead of restoring. Important: Please note that holding the Alt/Option key on the Mac or Shift Key in Windows is very important because iTunes will update your device to iOS 9.2, so be careful.
  • Now Select the iOS 9.1 ipsw file you had downloaded earlier.
  • iTunes will inform that it will update your iOS device to iOS 9.1 and will verify the update with Apple.
  • Click Update.
  • iTunes will now install iOS 9.1 on your device.
That’s it. Your device should now be successfully upgraded to iOS 9.1.

Note: jailbroken Users should stay away from iOS 9.1 & iOS 9.2 as these iOS firmware has no jailbreak yet.
