As we all impatiently wait for an iOS 10.2 jailbreak, Luca Todesco has quietly been expanding the number of devices that his Yalu iOS 10 – iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak will work on.
Until now, the beta jailbreak from Todesco has only been successful on iPhone 6s / iPhone 6S Plus / iPad Pro / iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus running iOS 10.0.1, iOS 10.0.2, iOS 10.0.3, iOS 10.1 or iOS 10.1.1.
Today we’ve learned that iPhone SE has now been included, and there’s word that iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s may soon join the ranks. Right now the iPhone SE models that can be jailbroken are the ones with TSMC processors.
So, for now Todesco’s jailbreak beta covers iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, iPad Pro and now the iPhone SE, with iPhone 6 and 5s to be added soon. Unfortunately, there’s no firm timeline for the two additional devices.
As we’ve said before, this is merely a beta version of the full jailbreak. Do expect a lot of bugs and problems with the jailbreak, but count yourself lucky if you don’t face that many issues during the process. Unless you’re confident of your dev abilities, it’s probably not a great idea.
We’ve described the process in detail in this article, including what you need to do as preparatory steps.
Finally, please save your iOS 10.2 shsh2 blobs right away in case the rumors about an iOS 10.2 jailbreak coming soon are true.
We’ve shown you how to save your blobs for iOS 10.2 in this piece.
And, finally, iOS 10.3 (first beta) will be dropping to devices starting January 10, so that’s just a few days away. If you save your iOS 10.2 blobs now, you can confidently upgrade to iOS 10.3 beta and know that even if Apple stops signing the older versions you can downgrade with the Prometheus tool from Redditor tihmstar.
We do have word that Pangu could be about to release a public iOS 10.2 jailbreak, and that comes from Cydia creator saurik so it’s probably a good thread to keep your eye on. Besides, hacker Stefan Esser also indicated that it was a “team” that was working on an iOS 10.2 jailbreak, and Chinese hacker team Pangu is the only credible group that the clues point to at this moment.
We’ll keep you posted as things progress.
