Luca Todesco has just posted the incomplete source code for his iOS 10.2 Yalu jailbreak to Github. Bear in mind, this is only an initial commit and does not even contain the entirety of the code, including patches, which will be required for the final product.

The code appears quite similar to the initial build of the tool we saw a month or so back, which supported only iOS 10(.1(.1)). Todesco subsequently stated that his fix for the instability of that beta tool would also provide support for iOS 10.2, on all devices except the iPhone 7(+).

Whilst it is encouraging to see a commit of the code, which presumably implies that work continues on the project, it is far too early to start getting excited about this development. As stated, the code is incomplete in device support, iOS version support, and actual jailbreak content, and is intended for developers to peruse only.

The code of the jailbreak is attributed to Luca Todesco, and Marco Grassi of the outfit Keen Lab. We’ll keep you up to date with the progress of the project on Github as the commits roll in and when any major development occurs. In the meantime, remain calm and do not hassle the developers.

I would also advise against trying to make use of the project, unless you really know what you’re doing, as it is fundamentally unfinished at present and will certainly not run for you in any helpful way.

Remember: the posting of the code is not an admission of a release date, nor of anything else, and its clearly unfinished state should be enough to put an end to the questions about its progress for now. However, it’s heartening to see something concrete, so let’s just wait and see how it develops in the coming weeks.

    Please remain calm and do not hassle the developers. I second this statement.

      Thanks dad 😉

        Don’t make me come back there! 😛

        it’s a quote from the article

    • Shadowelite123

      Seriously. People dont understand this anymore, like if developers owe us jailbreaks for life.

    All but the 7+. Amazing.

    • Austin

      it’s all but the 7 and 7+

      • Diego Milano

        Pretty discouraging for the people who rushed and upgrade to any of these devices, right? What to do…

  • Rondog

    It’s great to hear something is in the works. I ‘m still not sure if I should update to 10.2, seeing we may only have this week before apple stops signing it.

    • Supah Hollywood

      Just stay where you are and save the blobs for 10.2!

      • jalexcarter

        how do you save blobs for software you’re not currently running?

      • Wilber Alexander Flores


      • Kenzie MacLean

        When I finally got tsssaver to work it saved blobs for both 10.2 (currently running firmware) and 10.2.1, I assume because they were both being signed by Apple.

      • Supah Hollywood

        Your phone doesn’t need to be on the firmware it saves whatever is being signed when you do it

      • Liggerstuxin

        Just update to 10.2 and make it less complicated. You can live without a jailbreak for a month if it means staying on the latest and greatest.

  • Diego Milano

    This might be a bit of an ignorant statement but, isn’t this suitable for Apple to research the code and patch the jailbreak earlier? Of course, we could assume that Apple engineers already have a copy of the beta and already tested by now, however what exactly is the point of doing this? Is it just to see that he isn’t doing anything wrong or hiding anything that would be harmful?

    • Joaquim Barbosa

      The jailbreak already doesn’t work on 10.2.1, so it makes no difference. Or else he probably wouldn’t have done it. Cheers!

      • Diego Milano

        Live long, and prosper. ;P

    • Inseltraeumer

      Not trying to talk down the developers’ efforts, but maybe they hope someone else will continue what they started?

      • Diego Milano

        They can’t since it’s not the entire source code. But then again it’s possible that other potential hackers may join efforts for future hailbreaks using this as a basis. 🙂

      • Inseltraeumer

        Well, looks like I was mistaken 🙂

  • iOS Kush

    I just updated to 10.2 over the weekend due to losing faith for the 10.1 Jailbreak for iPhone 6+. Glad to see this one is already in the making, honestly I just want a stable SnapChat++ or Phantom. Annoyed with the 12-15 hour window of it working then “connection error”.

  • Danny Ballantine

    What iOS should Inbe on to prepare for the next jailbreak?

    • Joaquim Barbosa

      Read my other article, titled “what are my options?”. It depends what device you have, and you didn’t give any details.
