Now that Luca has updated iOS 10.2 jailbreak yalu102 to beta 6 with added support for compatible iPhone 6, 6 Plus, iPhone 5s and all 64-bit iPad models, among some other changes.
This new beta version of jailbreak iOS 10.2 release comes only a few days after the initial rollout of yalu102 that supported iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPad Pro models. With this latest iteration, yalu102 can now basically jailbreak all 64-bit devices except the newer iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices.
Actually iOS 10.2.1 out now and Apple testing iOS 10.3 with developers and testers, those interested in jailbreaking should downgrade to iOS 10.2 while Apple still signing the firmware as it could be closing the signing window anytime soon.
You really have the opportunity to save the SHSH2 blobs for iOS 10.2 as this will allow users to downgrade iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.2 firmware even after Apple stops signing the said iOS firmware version. Another way you can know how to permanently preserve your iOS 10.2 jailbreak in our guide later on.
For Apple’s latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices, the newly released yalu102 jailbreak doesn’t support as yet. The latest version of iOS which can only be jailbroken on the two is iOS 10.1.1, and you can do so using Mach_Portal+Yalu tool, these instructions here may help you a lot.
