How to jailbreak an iPhone running iOS 10.1.1 – iOS 10.2

The recently released Yalu jailbreak tool can assist you to jailbreak iPhone running between iOS 10 and iOS 10.2. It supports limited models of iOS devices including iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2, 3 and 4, iPad Air 1 and 2, it is working on iPhone 7 as well, but only running iOS 10.1.1.

iOS 10 Jailbreak

1Download the latest version of Yalu Jailbreak IPA and Cydia Impactor on your computer.

2Run Cydia Impactor and connect iPhone you intend to jailbreak to Mac/PC via a USB cable. Cydia should automatically recognize your app.

3Once your iPhone is connected, drag the Yalu jailbreak IPA into the Cydia Impactor interface. Click the 'Start' button and click 'OK' when an Apple Developer Warning appears.

Drag Yalu into Cydia

4You will be asked to enter your Apple ID and password. This information will be sent to Apple only and is used to sign the IPA file. Cydia Impactor should then automatically prepare everything based on your input, and sign the IPA file. If all goes well, the Yalu app should then be installed on your iOS device.

5On your iPhone, go to "Settings" > "General" > "Profiles & Device Management", select Yalu App and hit "Trust".

6Go back to Home screen and launch the "mach_portal" app. A white screen will be displayed for 15-20 seconds. This means that the iPhone jailbreak process has started. Do not do anything until the process is completed.

Once the jailbreak completes successfully, your device will reboot automatically and Cydia should appear on the Home screen, open the app and begin installing your favorite jailbreak apps and tweaks.

Note: This type of jailbreak is semi-untethered jailbreak, which means that every time your iPhone restarts, the jailbreak will be disabled. You cannot use any jailbreak tweaks you installed and Cydia will crash when launched. To re-jailbreak, simply open the Yalu app and perform the jailbreak again. Your device will then go back to the normal jailbroken state.

How to jailbreak iPhone running iOS 9.2 – iOS 9.3.3

For those who want to jailbreak their iOS device running from iOS 9.2 to iOS 9.3.3, you will have to take a different road.

This is also a semi-tethered theory, and it supports 64-bit devices such as iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, etc.

Jailbreak iOS 9.3.3

2On your computer, open Cydia Impactor, drag and drop Pangu jailbreak tool in it. If an Apple Developer warning appears, click OK.

Drag and Drop Pangu Jailbreak

3Input your Apple ID and password, which will be used to create a free Apple developer certificate for signing the .iPA file of Pangu jailbreak.
