Since the most discussed subject comes Todesco’s Yalu102 for iOS 10.0.1-iOS 10.2 in these days, we have been receiving questions from many about the state of iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak. In fact, the tool conditions with Yalu102 have caused the user to doubt about the jailbreak state of 10.2.1 which now comes the latest in Apple’s side. So this is all about iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak together with Yalu102 facts. If you too doubt whether the same Yalu going to add support for iOS 10.2.1 or having hopes for a different tool plan, read to catch all fresh facts from us.
iOS 10.2.1 Now Signs
With the recent announcement Apple made about closing the signing window of previous 10.2, iOS 10.2.1 has become only the version signs in the Apple’s side. So those who upgrade or restore their iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch will get upgrade 10.2.1 which comes addressing some bug fixes and slight security changes. In fact, iOS 10.2.1 is a minor scale update to the operating system which been released specially to address followed with the time of 10.2.
As downgrades no longer accepted from iOS 10.2.1 latest, you have to take the decision of upgrading with good care. In fact, it matters for jailbreakers as iOS 10.2.1 is still not confirmed gatting jailbroken. And as Yalu jailbreak tool coming in days ahead too limited up to iOS 10.2, upgrade iOS 10.2.1 is currently recommended for none-jailbreakers at this stage. So handle with care as any mess in the processing could force you to upgrade 10.2.1 which will trap you for some time with no jailbreak.
Update: iOS 10.3 beta 2 is now available for testing. For now it is only for the developers and the public testing version too can be soon expected
Should you try Yalu102?
Soon with the source codes are revealed, Todesco has given rights to Yalu102 beta. So starting from an extremely limited work capacity with the initial beta, we now can see 7th beta out, which has come through different beta builds. Compared to the initial build and preceding Yalu 10.1.1, this comes stable in processing. And as it supported all iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch devices in the 64-bit category, Yalu102 sounds good to public use even under beta. However, remember that it still omits support for iPhone 7 Jailbreak on iOS 10.2 just for the same hardware security reason which we found in initial states. But as Luca says there can be a change with iPhone 7 jailbreak up in future, keep in touch for a favorable update soon.
iOS 10.2.1 Jailbreak with Yalu- Can You?
With the noted security changes in iOS 10.2.1, Yalu will hardly add support for iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak. In fact, iOS hackers find iOS 10.2 and iOS 10.2.1 as two different jailbreak tasks which would be difficult for Yalu to make a one job. So will jailbreak iOS 10.2.1 remain impossible?
The question cannot be answered for certain as there can be surprising release anytime in the jailbreak community. Just like seen in past, Pangu or TaiG could also use iOS 10.2.1 to come back to their work form while Todesco’s Yalu goes a different work plan.
