If you’re on the yalu+mach_portal jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1, there’s good news for you today! An updated exploit has resulted in extra_recipe+yaluX, a new version of the jailbreak without the stability issues of the previous tool.
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.
Those of you who have jailbroken in recent times, with either yalu1011, yalu102, Home Depot, or 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.
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.
