If you’ve been using an iOS device for long, you probably know who Luca Todesco is. Todesco, who uses the Twitter handle @qwertyoruiopz, has made a name for himself as one of the most reliable hackers since he usually finds it easy to crack into even the latest and most secure iOS versions. He’s famous for showing off his jailbroken devices without sharing the tools he used, but he has since broken that record by releasing the Yalu jailbreaking tool.
People were excited to use the Yalu jailbreak tool for iOS 10.1.1 simply because it was developed by Todesco. Unfortunately, the tool didn’t exactly meet expectations because it has a lot of shortcomings. We’ve listed some of them below:
It’s still in beta
There’s technically nothing wrong with beta tools, but we have to admit that they have fewer features and are generally less useful than stable versions. Yalu is great for those who want to jailbreak their iOS devices now but, for those aren’t too eager, they’ll definitely benefit from waiting for the stable version.
It’s limited to certain models
The Yalu jailbreaking tool only works on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models that are running on iOS 10.1 and 10.1.1 as well as iPad Pro, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6s Plus units that are running on iOS 10.0.x to 10.1.1. Other iOS devices that aren’t mentioned above are not eligible to use Yalu.
It provides limited support to Cydia
For many iOS device owners, the entire point of jailbreaking their iOS device is to have full access to Cydia and the wide range of tweaks it offers. The fact that Yalu doesn’t support all of Cydia’s tweaks is one of the reasons why it falls short of people’s expectations.
The Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 isn’t perfect, but Luca Todesco reveals that he’s planning to get it out of beta. Let’s cross our fingers that the jailbreaking tool’s stable version will provide better features for iOS 10 users.
