How To Yalu Jailbreak iOS 10.2 Tutorial
We have waited months for it but it has finally arrived. The iOS 10.2 Jailbreak released from the Italian developer, Luca Todesco himself today January 26, 2017. He posted a bit of code last night on GitHub and was giving us what must have been a hint at what was coming today because sure enough its here. Enough rambling and on with the tutorial. Luca is calling this Yalu beta 1 release for the public as opposed to a Gamma release. Either way it’s here and we love him for it. However, the list of supported devices is pretty small but he has stated more would be added in the coming weekends.
Special note: This Jailbreak is Semi-Tethered which means each time your device is powered off or runs out of battery charge you will have to complete the last step of the jailbreak again. That only means you will have to tap the Yalu102 icon and run the jailbreak again to add Cydia. Yes, you will lose any tweaks that are installed but you can download them again fairly easy. This does not mean you have to buy them again. Any tweaks purchases can be downloaded indefinitely inside the Cydia purchased section.
Current device support extends to:
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s+
- iPhone SE
- iPad Pro
The list should be updated by the weekend January 26, 2017 now.
Although this is considered still in beta I feel it’s safe enough or Todesco would not have released it as public beta1. Especially after all the criticism he received last time from people like Saurik, owner of Cydia. He made comments about it being a “waste” to have burn an exploit on a beta release. Want to know more about what Saurik said, watch my video here.
*****Before even beginning the Jailbreak please backup your iOS 10.2 device first and disable passcodes.
