Most jailbreak fans have probably heard of Luca Todesco, an Italian developer who’ behind many jailbreaks – the latest one being iOS 10.1 Yalu jailbreak. Well, the developer seems to be consistent in his activity to ensure the jailbreak is stable and doesn’t have any bugs. Luca has announced that Yalu will be updated with jailbreak support for iOS 10.2, but there’s something that the owners of the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus should know.
There are many users who didn’t use Yalu on iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1 and Luca Todesco will update it with support for iOS 10.2, which is great news. But unfortunately, this jailbreak is not compatible with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which currently support iOS 10 and iOS 10.1.1.
Those who have installed iOS 10.2 are advised to stick with it for a while and to any new iOS update, especially iOS 10.2.1 or iOS 10.3 beta – the latter being expected to be released on January 10. If users will make the mistake to update their iDevices, they will not be able to jailbreak them any time soon.
Currently, Apple is signing iOS 10.2 and it’s important to use iTunes in order to do a clean restore of the firmware. The process doesn’t take too long and it’s not complicated at all, but it’s necessary to take a proper backup first, so that the data stored on the device won’t be lost during the installation. Todesco warned that the Yalu jailbreak is currently in beta, which means that it comes with bugs and some performance issues which will affect the performance of the operating system. Regular users should not install Yalu if they don’t know what they’re dealing with, and they should wait until the beta tag will be dropped. But it’s not known when this will happen.
