iOS 10 Jailbreak On Its Way, Shown Running On An iPad [Video]


Here’s what we see is a posted iOS 10 / 10.0.1 jailbreak demo video for final version of firmware running either on an iPad Air 2 or the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Thanks to Luca Tedesco for this sharing.

The final version of iOS 10 was only been available recently, but a new video shows that it has already been jailbroken successfully. Created and published the video by the same developer and security researcher responsible for raising excitement levels with the reveal of a similar video that originally showed the functioning jailbreak running on Apple’s eight beta of iOS 10 developer version prior to it actually going into a Golden Master stage.

Current video shows an iPad running iOS 10 complete with support for Cydia Substrate with the famous Cydia icon present in the Dock alongside other popular packages, like the iFile and Mobile Terminal. Now, when you attempt to run Cydia, as well as the other packages that have installed directly via the Cydia platform, they all crash back to the Home screen, which is actually due to the reason that the device has been liberated in a semi-untethered nature and isn’t in a jailbroken state at that point in time.

He by running his jailbreak app, titled yalux_clean, allows the device to be put into a jailbroken state, after which he shows a custom Anemone theme running on the iPad that changes the appearance of all the installed icons. Launches Cydia as well then to show that it can actually be invoked and will work without issue on the iOS 10 hardware. However, the video demonstration finished off by running apps such as iFile and Mobile Terminal, as well as flicking through some of the features of iOS 10 to only show that it’s actually an iPad running the recently released iOS 10 firmware.

Of course, with this demo video of a jailbroken iOS 10 iPad device will be raising excitement levels in the iOS jailbreak community. Especially amongst those who have sacrificed a jailbreak on iOS 9.3.3 to download and install iOS 10 in order to interact with all of the new software features.

One point in 10 to note is that, obviously with every new event that raise excitement levels, but the Italian developer and researcher has historically shown that his own jailbreak solutions are generally put in place for his personal research and learning purposes only. So, it’s highly unlikely that this will ever be packaged into a publicly available solution.

There are other highly responsible persons who has managed to jailbreak iOS 10. Previously, both Pangu team and iH8sn0w have also demonstrated their iOS 10 jailbreaks although they were shown at a time when iOS 10 was still in beta. It will be more excited to see if Apple has patched any of those exploits used to jailbreak the betas in the final release.

We will keep you updated with all the latest on the jailbreak-front. Stay tuned.
