It’s no secret that jailbreaking has been the favorite activity of Apple users for more than a decade now. And, for what it’s worth, jailbreaking iOS devices came with advantages. For one, it allowed for much more advanced device customization options, as well as a lot of free apps. But it was also dangerous, and many devices got fried due to uninformed jailbreaking attempts.
Apple seemed to have put an end to jailbreaking for good with iOS 10, with apparently had no exploitable flaws or quirks that hackers could use for jailbreaking. Chinese jailbreakers Pangu promised fans that they will be able to finally release a new jailbreak that will finally work on iOS 10 when iOS 10.3.2 is released. But the newest version of the OS launched a few weeks ago, and Apple even announced the next installment in the line, iOS 11.
Yet Pangu’s jailbreak failed to appear. Many still believe it will come as late as August, while others have lost faith entirely. The non-believers claim that if a jailbreak for iOS 10 was possible after the release of iOS 10.3.2, it would have come by now. But there is another options available right now.
Luca Todesco’s Final Jailbreak
We’re talking about Luca Todesco’s Yalu jailbreak, a new iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak that can work on devices that have received the update for it. However, Luca Todesco, the creator of the jailbreak technique, has warned against jailbreaking iOS 10 altogether. Todesco claims that the process is far more dangerous on the current OS than it was on previous ones, and many more devices risk to get damaged in the process even if you know what you’re doing. He also decided to quit the industry, and this jailbreak is his swan song as it seems.
