Apple fans should be happy to hear that an iOS 10/10.1.1 jailbreak tool has finally surfaced. Ever since iOS 10 was rolled out Apple power users have been waiting for hackers to develop a jailbreak tool but after a couple of months Luca Todesco managed to find a crack in the software’s security and develop a jailbreak tool. Luca Todesco, the popular iOS hacker managed to achieve this by using the Project Zero exploit that was found by Ian Beer.
What we should disclose before providing readers with the iOS 10 jailbreak tutorial is that the jailbreak is still in its beta phase and it contains its fair share of bugs and that it’s not supported by all iPhone versions but more iPhone variants will be added along the way. Right now only iPhone 6S/Plus, iPhone 7/ Plus and iPad Pro that run on iOS 10.0.1 and 10.1.1 can use the jailbreak tool.
Before heading into the installation process we need to go over the prerequisites. Download the Yalu IPA file from Yalu’s official website and the latest edition of Cydia Impactor. Now that these files have been download go ahead and update iTunes on a PC to the latest available version and backup the device using either iTunes or iCloud. The last thing required is to disable the designated device’s passcode and Touch Id.
How To Jailbreak iOS
- Connect the device to the PC via USB and launch Cydia Impactor then drag the Yula IPA file into Cydia and enter your personal Apple ID and Password.
- Now Cydia will automatically install the jailbreak app on the device and when the process is completed, access Settings- General- Profiles & Device Management and browse over to “Beta Software Profile” then select “Trust” and confirm it by tapping on “Trust” again.
- Head to the Home Screen and open up “Mach_Portal” and once the process it’s finished and you can see the Cydia Impactor on the Home Screen, the device has been successfully jailbroken.
Our advice for iOS users is to rather wait a while longer until a stable version becomes available, especially since this beta version expires after seven days. If you don’t consider yourself an iOS power users you should be careful not to download any Cydia apps because the operating system might upgrade automatically to iOS 10.2.
