Possible downgrade to iOS 10.2 from iOS 10.2.1 for some users

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 20, 2017

Are you are stuck on iOS 10.2.1 or higher, having missed the iOS 10.2 signing window and therefore the Yalu jailbreak? If so, you may be in luck today, provided you have the correct setup. Early reports have come in that some devices are creating nonce collisions on iOS 10.3 b1, providing an indirect route back to iOS 10.2 through Prometheus.

For this clever workaround to come off, you must have a device which produces collisions, namely the iPhone 5s or (possibly, though not confirmed on iOS 10.3 b1), an iPad Air. If you do, you may be able to downgrade from iOS 10.2.1 to iOS 10.2 and jailbreak, by first downloading and installing iOS 10.3 beta 1, and then downgrading to iOS 10.2 using futurerestore.

Jailbroken on iOS 10 and miss the Apple logo respring screen? This tweak brings it back

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 17, 2017

Coming to the rescue at just right time is a new free jailbreak tweak called MakeRespringsGreatAgain by wizages, which brings back the iconic Apple logo screen whenever you respring your device. Read More

 

AppSync beta released with iOS 10 support

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 14, 2017

One of the more common questions we’ve been getting here at iDB since the release of the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 is when AppSync Unified, from Karen Tsai (angelXwind), would be getting an update to make it compatible with the new jailbreak.

As you may be aware, many people got themselves into a respring loop of some description by installing AppSync soon after the Yalu jailbreaks came out. That should now have been fixed with this new beta version of AppSync Unified, available on Karen’s Cydia repository. Read More

 

Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Eclipse 4, FingerTouch, SmartVPN, & more…

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 12, 2017

Things are really changing for the better in the jailbreak community since the Yalu iOS 10.0-10.2 jailbreak became stable enough for the public to use. Not only has Cydia been brought out of beta for iOS 10, but Cydia purchases have also been enabled, which means jailbreak tweak developers can now host their paid tweaks for the iOS 10 jailbreak.

Since this week has been pretty busy, we’ll be rounding up all the tweaks that were released throughout the week and putting them into a neat little list for you. We’ll start with our favorites first, then move on to the rest later. Read More

 

Solution to 7-day signing for Yalu may be coming: avoid other methods!

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 9, 2017

Those of you who have jailbroken in recent times, with either yalu1011, yalu102, Home Depotor Pangu 9.2-9.3.3, can’t have failed to notice a new feature of these tools which jailbreakers never had to contend with before.

I’m not referring to the semi-untether here, but rather to the installing of a profile on your device which signs the jailbreak app for a certain amount of time. iOS 10 jailbreakers particularly have felt the irritation of this limitation, but all that may be about to change, based on some tentative words from Cydia creator Jay Freeman (Saurik).

At the same time, other workarounds for the seven-day signing limit have started surfacing; these are almost all a bad idea, and should be avoided.

Jailbreak tweaks of the week: Gorgone, Horseshoe, TweetMuter, & more…

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 5, 2017

Another week has passed, and it was perhaps one of the most historical weeks of the year, as the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.0-10.2 has reached its peak point in its beta stages where its developer Luca Todesco has deemed it stable enough to be used by the populous.

That said, this week brought with it some pretty interesting jailbreak tweak releases, many of which are made specifically for iOS 10, so we’ll talk about those in this roundup, starting with our favorite and then moving onto the rest afterwards. Read More

 

Support for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus still coming to Yalu jailbreak

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 4, 2017

Since our most recent post on the subject of Luca Todesco’s Yalu jailbreaks for iOS 10, we have been receiving queries from our readers about the status of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Although the two flagship devices were supported on the first version of the tool, which was for iOS 10(.1(.1)), they were omitted from the follow-up tool for iOS 10.0-10.2.

This has caused some to doubt whether these devices will ever see a stable build of the jailbreak, and whether they have been forgotten about. Fortunately, these worries are groundless; support for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is still very much planned. Read More

 

How to enter No Substrate Mode on the iOS 10 jailbreak

By Joaquim Barbosa on Feb 3, 2017

Now that yalu102 has been out a while, along with its unstable predecessor for iOS 10.0-10.1.1, many of our readers will no doubt be running one of these two jailbreaks. As is always the case with a jailbreak on a new iOS version, many tweaks are not yet updated, and some can cause crashes or even bootloops.

It is consequently useful to be able to get into No Substrate Mode, to be able to escape tweak-related crashes and remove offending tweaks. The process has changed slightly since the days of the untethered jailbreak due to the fact that current semi-untethered tools do not boot into a jailbroken state. In this guide, we’ll show you how No Substrate Mode is accessed on the Yalu jailbreaks. Read More

 

DarkMessages gives your iOS 10 Messages app a dark makeover

By Anthony Bouchard on Feb 3, 2017

Dark mode-based jailbreak tweaks appear to be a pretty hot topic of conversation lately, and it would seem that this trend isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

A new free jailbreak tweak called DarkMessages by Sticktron is now available in Cydia that gives the Messages app on jailbroken iOS 10 devices a dark mode-styled makeover. Read More
