Today we will talk about iOS 10.0.1 – 10.2 Yalu Jailbreak and teach you how to install it on your iDevice. First of all, you have to know that this version is still considered a BETA version and sometimes it might randomly crash, so use it at your own risk.
- A computer running on Windows or Mac;
- The latest version of iTunes installed on the computer;
- The Yalu .ipa file;
- Cydia Impactor
- A compatible iDevice.
- iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro, iPad Mini 2, iPad Mini 3, iPad Mini 4;
- iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus;
- iPod Touch 6.
WARNING: Before you start installing this jailbreak on your device we have to mention that it is a semi-untethered one, which means that you will need to reactivate it on your device every time you reboot or shutdown the device.
The device will function normally after the reboot/shutdown, but all tweaks will stop working. Cydia and all the other jailbroken applications will still be visible on the home screen, but they won’t function.
In order to re-jailbreak your handset, you will need to open yalu102 application, tap “Go” and wait for your device to turn into jailbroken state. We have to mention that in case you reboot your device after one week, you will have to use the “Impactor” once again to re-jailbreak, because the temporary certificate lasts only 7 days.
Changing Root Password
After installing iOS 10.0.1 – 10.2 Yalu Jailbreak on your iDevice, a SSH daemon will be installed by default. A SSH daemon is very useful, but at the same time it can be quite dangerous, as it turns your device into a server with remote login access. In other words, if someone knows your root password, he will be able to remotely access and control your computer without you even noticing it. The default password for the “root” account on Apple devices is “alpine” and we highly suggest you to change it as fast as possible.
HINT: The good news is that the developers of Yalu decided to disable SSH over Wi-Fi on the latest version of the jailbreak, but it is always better to be safe than sorry, and just change the root password.
Downloading 10.0.1 – 10.2 Yalu Jailbreak
- Download Yalu jailbreak .ipa from the official Yalu website;
- Download Cydia Impactor from the official Cydia Impactor website.
There are many scam websites out there and this is the reason why we’ve decided to just put the direct link to the official websites so you won’t get a malware on your device.
Installing 10.0.1 – 10.2 Yalu Jailbreak
First of all, you will need to backup your device via iTunes, so make sure you install iTunes on your computer. Once you do that, connect the iDevice to the computer and backup all your important data.
After downloading Yalu .ipa file and Cydia Impactor (you will need to also unpack this one), you will have to connect your iDevice to the computer. Your device will ask if you trust the computer and you will have to select the “Trust” button. Also, in case iTunes auto-launches, you will need to close it.
Run Cydia Impactor and verify if the device ID and model are displayed in the main window. In case you don’t see them, it means that your iDevice has not been recognized and you will need to close Cydia Impactor, re-connect your mobile handset to the computer and try again. After your device gets recognized, you will need to drag the .ipa file into the Cydia Impactor and enter your Apple ID and password when the application requests it.
Go to your mobile device and access Settings->General->Device Manager, select the Apple ID you’ve used in the previous step and choose “Trust.” (if you own a paid developer account you can skip this step). Now, launch the “yalu102” app on your iDevice, tap “Go” and wait until the device gets into the jailbroken state.
Finally, just unlock the handset and look if Cydia has been added to your device. If you can see it there, then your device has just been jailbroken. Enjoy!
