iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak update

All reliable sources point to an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak coming out sometime at the end of August, with one of them possibly being pushed to September or even later. Let’s look at the various options available right now for anyone running iOS 10.x.x, and see what the horizon holds for the future.

For iOS 10.0 to iOS 10.1.1 | iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

The extra_recipe + YaluX by Xerub & Ianbeer now comes with substrate support, and also covers iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus devices running iOS 10.0.x. It is currently in its fourth beta.

For iOS 10.1.1 – All 64-bit devices | Could work with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

The Yalu + Mach_Portal jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1 by Ian Beer and Luca Todesco should work on iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as well as older 64-bit devices, but you may have to hard reset it a few times before getting it to work.

For iOS 10.0 to 10.2 | Except iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

Yalu102 is currently in its seventh beta, and the latest beta is fixed for iPad Air and iPad Mini 4. Unfortunately, not a lot of iPhone and iPad users are on iOS 10.2, since iOS 10.2.1 was pushed quickly after and fixed a WiFi vulnerability for devices with Broadcom WiFi chips. Fortunately, this JB works for all devices running iOS 10.0.0 to iOS 10.2.

So this is the current jailbreak availability for iOS 10 devices. Apparently, Luca Todesco has hinted at several vulnerabilities on iOS 11 Beta 1, which means he’s likely to jump back into the game after ‘declaring’ his retirement from the jailbreak scene not too long ago.

That’s obviously great news, but since iOS 11 doesn’t come out until the fall, several of these vulnerabilities could end up being patched by Apple’s security team. Since several jailbreakers are also working with Apple on its Bug Bounty Program, some of these could also be reported before the public version of iOS 11 is released.

The second ray of hope is the work Adam Donenfeld has done on at least one iOS 10.3.1 vulnerability. This security veteran, who currently works with Zimperium, is also part of the bug bounty program, but has confirmed that he has written an exploit for one of the vulnerabilities that were patched on iOS 10.3.2. That means it should work for all devices running iOS 10.0.0 to iOS 10.3.1. Donenfeld subsequently confirmed support for iPhone 7.


That said, he’s not actually releasing an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak. He’s merely publishing the source code for the exploit and the accompanying instructions to compile a jailbreak. Another dev has to come along and actually do the grunt work before a beta version can see the light of day.

The third and final possibility, and an extremely slim one at that, is Team Pangu revealing its iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak for iPhone 7 that was showcased at the end of April at a mobile security conference. We don’t expect that to happen, since Pangu most likely has an agreement with Apple not to release that jailbreak to the public. But you never know.

And that’s the current status and outlook for the immediate future. We’re confident that we’ll soon have some stable versions of the existing tools, as well as a possible new iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak later this year.

Interestingly, Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.1 for some reason, which is unusual since iOS 10.3.2 has been out for a while now, and even iOS 10.3.3 has been in beta 2 for some time.

If you act now, you can save your SHSH2 blobs for both iOS 10.3.1 and iOS 10.3.2. Please review this article below, where we show you what options you have:
