iOS 10.2 Jailbreak is finally here trough Yalu Jailbreak App and in can be used on basically any 64 bit devices, the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, iPad mini 2, 3 and 4, iPad Air 1 and 2 on iOS 10 - 10.2. It is working on iPhone 7 as well, but only running iOS 10.1.1.
The type of jailbreak that we will be doing today is a semi-untethered jailbreak, meaning that you will not need a computer to jailbreak your device again every time you restart your iPhone, but you will need to run Yalu App directly from your phone.
Before you proceed further, please keep in mind that being a jailbreak done trough Yalu App, your certificate will expire after every seven days so you will need to reinstall Yalu app every week in order to keep your device jailbroken. It does not take more than a minute or two the repeat the installation weekly, however, if this is a showstopper for you, than you should wait a bit longer until another option will be available. Be sure that we will report on it and make tutorials as soon as a different version will be out, so you might subscribe to our mailing list to get the news in your inbox.
If that's OK with you however, than let's proceed further!
Note: This Jailbreak does not work on iOS 10.2.1 or 32 bit devices. If you are on 10.2.1, you should downgrade to 10.2 trough iTunes because right now Apple is still signing 10.2.
What need to Jailbreak iPhone 6 on iOS 10.2
- A computer with iTunes installed and an internet connection
- An iPhone or iPad with iOS 10.2 installed
- An iPhone cable
1. Backup your iPhone
You need to create a backup not only to have your awesome stuff backed up, but also to be able to downgrade in the future if it's needed. You also never know what can go wrong, especially when doing a jailbreak and you need to wipe your phone, so a backup might come in handy if needed.
2. Cydia Impactor
If you do not have it already installed, you need to download and install Cydia Impactor on your computer because this is what we will be using to install Yalu App on your iPhone 6.
For those unfamiliar with Cydia Impactor, this piece of software allows you to install iPhone Apps from your computer by creating a certificate for seven days. Hence the weekly re-installation necessity. This will basically transform you into a developer in the eyes of Apple and you are permitted to install locally stored Apps as if you want to try them out on your iPhone.
3. Install Yalu App
- Download Yalu App from here (click the Download Now button)
- Connect your iPhone to your computer via USB
- Run Cydia Impactor and drag the Yalu app (ipa expension) into the Cydia Impactor interface
- Add your Apple credentials (will be submitted directly to Apple)
Now Yalu App is installed on your computer, but we still need to do a step more before running it.
4. Trust Yalu App
As this App is installed by a third party and not trough Apple Store, you'll need to tell your device that you are trusting the developer (which is you prom your previous step). To do this, go to Settings -> General -> Device Management, select Yalu App and hit trust.
Now you only need to launch Yalu App, tap to jailbreak and boom! (note: you may have to try more than once)
As said before, step 3 and 4 needs to be repeated every week as the certificate expire. After restarting your iPhone you just need to run Yalu again.
