Nintendo Switch vulnerable to iOS 9.3 WebKit exploit

A little over a week after the release of Nintendo’s new console, the Switch, reputed iOS hacker Luca Todesco has posted an image of an adapted version of his WebKit exploit running on the device.

As explained in a detailed proof-of-concept created by LiveOverflow, It seems that the Switch shipped with a somewhat antiquated browser, one whose version of WebKit was still vulnerable to the same exploit utilised by Todesco’s browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.x.

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

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.

Yalu102 beta 7: changelogs and installation advice

The jailbreak tool is now on its seventh iteration, and in this article I’ll outline the changelog for each beta, as well as my opinion on the tool’s current state.
