Meet Saïgon: iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak For 64-Bit Devices Released [Developers Only]

As far as the jailbreak community is concerned there are already several tweaks have been created, updated, and pushed out to Cydia for devices with access.But the fact the there’s no real jailbreak tool available for a whole. Until now, that is.

A new tool named Saïgon jailbreak for iOS 10.2.1 has been released that operates as solution by utilizing a number of exploits which have been into the public domain over the last few months.

iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak Saïgon

Now officially, the jailbreak has been released into the public domain to liberate devices running iOS 10.2.1. Great news for many who are still on the said firmware, but unfortunately, it won’t work to hack 32-bit devices with an ease. However, it comes with a fairly sizable caveat which could be showstopper for a lot of users out there waiting for such.

And which isn’t also available as a downloadable IPA file that you can easily sideload using Cydia Impactor on your PC or Mac connected to your device via USB. Though it is said to be coming soon. Right now, it is available as a Xcode source project that you will have to compile yourself and then run on device. Something specifically currently offered for developers only.

Those developers with better knowledge and capabilities will step forward soon enough to change the way it is deployed to make it easier for device owners.

For those accompanied with Xcode, and sitting on iOS 10.2.1 with a 64-bit device, once the Saïgon jailbreak app is compiled and deployed on the device, from there on it’s quite straightforward as you would expect. All that you need is to simply launch the app, tap jailbreak button as you would do with previous jailbreaks, and the package goes about its solution of jailbreaking iOS 10.2.1 using various exploits (triple_fetch+ziva+extra_recipe) released by Adam Beer, Adam Donenfeld, and Luca Todesco.

This jailbreak has been created/compiled by Abraham Masri. For more information on it, along with a link to download the Xcode project, head over to its GitHub page here.
