Jailbreaking Apple’s iOS 10 has been one of the more controversial topics in tech news over the last couple of months. While a solution finally came out courtesy of Luca Todesco, it is far from perfect and the clear shortcomings of the tool make it be nothing more than a temporary solution in the eyes of jailbreaking savvy Apple consumers. It looks like a more stable version with more features that also supports iOS 10.2 might be made available soon, thanks to Pangu which was believed to have dropped out of the Jailbreak race.
A glimmer of hope came from Todesco himself, as he used Twitted to advise people to keep their SHSH2 blobs for the time being, as a Jailbreak solution for iOS 10.2 might still be achievable. This isn’t the first time such advice has been posted by Todesco, as he previously urged people to not update to iOS 10.2 and maintain the 10.1.1 firmware running. Not long after, his 10.1.1 Jailbreak tool was released to the public.
Although Todesco is the one that suggested keeping the blobs, there have been no previous hints about him working on a new Jailbreak tool since he came out with Yalu and then tweeted that an update for it would come out. There are others that may be involved in providing a Jailbreak solution based on iOS 10.2. Many are speculating that Pangu would be making a return to the scene with an iOS 10.2 Jailbreak, while other think that Stefan Esser might have some implication in a new jailbreaking tool.
Suggestions of Pangu actually working on a tool were indirectly made by the creator of Cydia, but there is no palpable proof that would justify people expecting iOS 10.2 to be jailbroken in the near future.
