You might have heard a few weeks ago about Saigon tool that enabled users to jailbreak their iOS 10.2.1. Until now this tool was only available to developers, as there wasn’t an IPA file for users to sideload.
But Saigon developers have fixed this in an update and right now everyone can sideload the Saigon tool to jailbreak their iOS 10.2.1.
If you’re not much of a jailbreaking fan, then this article might not interest you at all. But if you’ve impatiently waited for this tool, then rejoice as it is finally available, and you can jailbreak your iOS 10.2.1.
Saigon iOS 10.2.1 – More Details
The update for Saigon tool also fixed some bugs and more some improvements overall. The camera wasn’t functional either, and this issue was addressed in the update. There is also support for more iOS devices (iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Mini 4 and iPad Air 2).
In the old days users were more prone to jailbreak their iOS, as they could take advantage of the latest iOS and more options from the jailbroken version. But today, when the newer iOS builds have improved and started offering more features, jailbreaking has become a past time activity. Hackers have turned away from improving or developing jailbreak tool and focused on jobs inside security firms or selling exploits rather than making them public and free of charge.
Saigon iOS 10.2.1 jailbreak tool was developed by a large team, with members such as Luca Todesco, Adam Donenfeld, Ian Beers, Tim Michaud, and many more. They also allowed users to sideload the IPA file, without them being developers. So, users can sideload Saigon iOS 10.2.1 with Cydia Impactor.
While we appreciate the effort, we’re also waiting for a more recent version of jailbreaking tool. Maybe we will be able to jailbreak our iOS 11 in the future!
