Luca Todesco Releases iOS 10 Jailbreak Beta Version
Yalu is now out. It is Luca Todesco’s iOS 10 jailbreak beta version. Right off the bat, it is important to note that this jailbreak will not be suitable for everyone who was looking forward to it. Todesco himself notes that you need to be skilled to try it out. You would want to continue reading this post to know what to do before downloading the jailbreak.
If you are already eager to know the details about this jailbreak for iOS 10, here are Todesco’s tweets:
Clearly, the above info shows that this beta version is far from the stable one. The limitations of this version of iOS 10 jailbreak are listed below.
iOS 10 Jailbreak Beta Caveats
- Requires a Mac or VM to run since you need Xcode and does not have a simple one-click GUI.
- You may need to install additional components afterwards since it does not mention if it automatically installs Cydia for you.
- It only supports iPhone 7 on iOS 10.1-10.1.1 and iPhone 6s/iPad Pro on iOS 10.x. The important thing to note here is that 10.x may mean iOS 10.2 but you have to wait for a confirmation to try out this jailbreak.
- This beta jailbreak version is not untethered. Based on the fact that coming across untethered jailbreaks has become hard in the recent past, this comes as no surprise.
Considerations for This Tool
Straight up from the tool’s developer, you need programming experience to try it. That is the case since there is a risk of ruining your device. If that happens, you will have to resort to iOS 10.2. Instead of going through all that hassle, you can just wait for a possible stable version.
You mess and have to settle on iOS 10.2, then you can hold on to hope. The upcoming Prometheus tool could help you downgrade to iOS 10.1.1 without Apple signing your firmware. Considering the risks, it would be better to wait for the stable version.
It is unfortunate that Apple’s efforts in releasing security in quick succession in deterring hackers could pay off. At one point, Todesco said that this could be the last jailbreak we could see in a long time. Although pessimistic, such a warning should be taken seriously if you want to remain jailbroken.
