At long last, after many weeks of waiting, we have an iOS 10 jailbreak. It is called Yalu Jailbreak [ about ] and it was released by Luca Todesco, the Italian hacker and developer that we have all come to know. This isn’t a straightforward jailbreak though and it doesn’t contain support for all iOS devices at this stage. So, before you go ahead and download it, cast your eyes over the possible risks and caveats to the Yalu Jailbreak .

- It is a beta jailbreak and this means it is likely to be somewhat glitchy and unstable. Luca Todesco himself has warned that it may be best if the first people to use the jailbreak were registered developers and people who have good experience of computer programming
- It only supports a couple of devices at the time of writing this article, which includes the iPhone 7 | iPhone 7 Plus and the iPhone 6S and iPad Pro . Todesco says that more devices will be added later on
- This is not a simple GUI jailbreak. It was built as an XCode project and that means that XCode or VM is needed for it to run in theory although we may have found a way to use Windows as well
- It is a semi-untethered jailbreak, which means you are going to have to re-jailbreak your device every time you reboot it.
That aside, if you do opt to jailbreak your device using Yalu Jailbreak, you can but be aware that, as it a new jailbreak, so it could cause problems on your device. If you do have to restore your iOS device, you will end up on the latest iOS version which may not be jailbreakable.

You will also need to use another tool called Cydia Impactor [ext link] to side load the jailbreak onto your iOS device and, for that you need an Apple developer’s account. You can use a free account but the jailbreak certificate will expire every 7 days and you will need to rejailbreak your device again every time. If you use a paid developer account, the certificate won’t expire for 12 months. The links below take you to instructions on using Yalu and deleting it if needed.
