Luca Todesco, also known as qwertyoruiop, has announced the first Beta of his iOS 10 Jailbreak dubbed Yalu is now available. But before you start jumping in joy, and connecting your phone to jailbreak it, we suggest you continue reading before you make any decision…
Let’s have a look at what the limitations are –
- The Beta Tool isn’t a simple application. It’s in the form of an Xcode project, and requires you to have Xcode which directly means you can only do this on a Mac or a Virtual Machine.
- There is no concrete evidence of whether it installs Cydia automatically or not, however we are aware that MobileSubstrate is not working at the moment.
- Device support is initially limited to just the iPhone 7 on iOS 10.1-10.11 and the iPhone 6s/iPad Pro on iOS 10.
- This is NOT an untethered jailbreak. It’s tethered.
Todesco states only developers with programming experience should try this tool out, and that too on a spare device, and not your daily driver. However it’s a good sign, which means we should see an untethered one-click jailbreak in the near future.
But our advise, stay away from this one. It’s not really going to give you any benefits till MobileSubstrate begins working.
