For security reasons, the Yalu and extra_recipe jailbreaks have confined SSH connections to USB only. This is sufficient for most, but power users may wish to enable wireless SSH connections for convenience. Additionally, the Dropbear client that these jailbreaks use to manage SSH does not bundle SCP or SFTP, the commands most often used for pushing files to and from your iOS device over SSH.
In this guide, we'll set about fixing up both these issues, to leave you with a more fully-configured SSH client.
If you're a perfectionist and don't like the extra_recipe jailbreak's lack of an icon, you can always change it to a custom one of your choice. This simple modification will also work to change the Yalu app icon should you so desire. Follow our guide below to see how.
If you're an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus user on iOS 10.0.0-10.1.1, the time has come for you to switch from the mach_portal jailbreak to the newer, more stable extra_recipe. If you're a flagship user on iOS 10.1 or iOS 10.1.1 it's as easy as downloading the .ipa and sideloading it; you can follow our guide on the subject.
However, if you're on iOS 10.0.0-10.0.x, or if you have a device other than the iPhone 7(+), there isn't currently an .ipa available which supports you. For that reason, we'll show you how to build your own straight from the source code on GitHub and push it to your device, so you needn't wait to get the newest features and device support.
If you're currently jailbroken with mach_portal for iOS 10.1(.1), you should switch over to the new extra_recipe jailbreak. It uses a different exploit from mach_portal, and boasts better stability. iPhone 7(+) users on iOS 10.0.0-10.0.3 can also get in on the fun, and some users of Yalu for 10.0.1-10.2 can make use of extra_recipe if they wish too. Follow our guide to see how to go about it.
As we reported a couple of weeks back, a new jailbreak for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has come onto the scene. The work of developer xerub, the tool was dubbed extra_recipe and initially supported only Apple's most recent flagship devices, and only on iOS 10.1.1. However, subsequent updates are quickly changing that.
As many of you will by now be aware, the yalu+mach_portal tool for iOS 10.1(.1) is no more. Troubled as it was with stability issues stemming from the mach_portal exploit it used, many iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus owners struggled with it, or chose not to use it at all. Luckily, that struggle is now over, as an updated tool entitled extra_recipe+yaluX has been released.
Developer xerub has just released an updated version of Ian Beer's mach_portal exploit, entitled extra_recipe. This new iteration should resolve the stability issues which have been plaguing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users on the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak.
Yalu creator Luca Todesco has in turn picked up the extra_recipe code and paired it with his Yalu jailbreak, compiling the project into a downloadable .ipa to create extra_recipe+yaluX, which effectively replaces his previous yalu+mach_portal tool.
