Here’s how you can update to 64-bit iOS 10-optimized Cydia 1.1.28 just after iOS 10.2 jailbreak with yalu102 on your jailbroken iPhone or iPad.
Saurik has in the past released 1.1.28 beta of Cydia installer for iOS 10 – 10.1.1 jailbreak, if you have been involved in the same jailbreak scene and community long enough to get your device liberated from Apple’s walled-garden through the jailbreak process, this time around you will be getting a new kind of Cydia store.
There’s indeed good times, but those times appear to be long behind us as Apple continues to tighten security, continues to make it harder to achieve root on its devices, and generally has made things difficult for those involved in the jailbreak community. Things may not be as direct as they once were as far as jailbreaking goes, but you can still help yourself by taking the chance to improve your jailbreak experience by upgrading to the 64-bit iOS 10-optimized version of Cydia.
Actuakky, the latest version of Yalu, “yalu102”, which is intended to jailbreak select non-iPhone 7 64-bit devices running iOS 10.2, comes built-in with the older 32-bit version 1.1.27 of Cydia.
Situation stands like an error, but it’s definitely valid considering Jay Freeman Saurik released the newer 64-bit and iOS 10-optimized version of Cydia at the back-end of last year and still currently sits in a beta state. That version of Cydia is actually version 1.1.28, which was released last year.
One of the best things is that yalu102 may have installed the older version of Cydia onto those iOS 10.2 jailbroken devices by default, but that doesn’t mean users are stuck with that. In fact, considering this is iOS 10.2, and considering the jailbreak only works with 64-bit devices, it makes perfect sense to actually upgrade the installed version of Cydia to the 64-bit beta 1.1.28 version to improve the overall stability of Cydia.
Again, the current jailbreak process may be buggy, semi-untethered, and less than an adequate solution if you consider the easier days of yesteryear, but we can enhance that experience by ensuring that we are utilizing every tool, tip and trick at our disposal.
