There is finally a solution for jailbreaking iOS 10.2 devices, but it is still in the Beta phase so there are several kinks to it. For starters, it is unfortunately not able to support iPhone 7 or 7 Plus devices. While that is an inconvenience for many, it is bound to be fixed as the build progresses. Your device also needs to be on a 64-bit architecture, as 32-bit devices won’t be able to use Yalu 102.
It is still very early so the build is intended for developers right now. While not ideal, the iOS 10.1.1 solution is still an option for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users. The developer behind Yalu 102, Luca Todesco, said that support for more 64-bit devices is on the way, although he excluded the iPhone 7 variants from the equation. We will have to wait and see how the tool develops and if there will be any support for iPhone 7 models in the future.
A long way to 10.2
People have been waiting for a way to jailbreak their iOS 10.2 iPhones and iPads for a long time, and they have been waiting for a viable iOS 10 solution for even longer. It’s been months since we were first introduced to iOS 10 but only now has a promising, stable Jailbreak tool emerged.
Back in late 2016, the iOS community was introduced to Yalu, a Jailbreak tool developed by Luca Todesco. After not being able to provide the means to jailbreak an iDevice running the latest Apple operating system version, fan favorite team Pangu dropped out of the race of coming up with one, leaving Luca Todesco to pick up the scraps. The latter came through initially by providing a Jailbreak tool for iOS 10.1.1, but it has several problems and users were ultimately required to re-apply the ROM every time their device would turn off.
That was just the first step, as Todesco teased that he is working on a 10.2 solution several times. It seems that he was serious as we now have an iOS 10.2 Jailbreak beta tool.
