You can now download Yalu, the first ever iOS 10 / 10.1.1 jailbreak that has been made public for compatible iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, and iPad Pro. Here’s what you actually want to know about it.
Following the Christmas celebrations the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak exploit has entered the party in the form of Project Zero, Italian developer and security researcher Luca Todesco has stayed on its promise by delivering a public accessible jailbreak for select devices running iOS 10.1.1. The popular jailbreak community has been waiting for any solid and concrete information pertaining to a jailbreak on iOS 10.x, which came very recently which an exploit was posted online after it was patched by Apple in iOS 10.2.
This release by Todesco would be looking to use that exploit info to put together a jailbreak package that could be downloaded and used by general device owners looking to get Cydia functioning on iOS 10.1.1. It now seems that the necessary work has been undertaken, with the release of the jailbreak given iPhone and iPad owners a new way of removing completely the shackles from Apple’s walled fence.
Dubbed “yalu + mach_portal”, as of right now, it is important to note that this is a beta release, meaning it might have all sort of bugs and teething issues. Also, Cydia Substrate isn’t supported immediately as yet.
The supported firmwares and devices are also limited, though future releases are said to add support for more firmware versions and iOS devices. Another point here is that the jailbreak is also not fully untethered variety. It’s semi-untethered, like Pangu’s iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. Currently, only iPhone 7 / 7 Plus running iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1, and iPhone 6s / 6s Plus and ipad Pro running any version of iOS 10.x (pre-iOS 10.2) are supported by the jailbreak.
