Now that Yalu Jailbreak has been released, many of you will be wanting to know how to use it. Before you go ahead and download it, you need to be aware that it is only in beta and is likely to be somewhat buggy. Also, it is a semi-untethered jailbreak, the same as the PPHelper jailbreak [ext link]. This means you will need to reinstall the jailbreak whenever you reboot your iOS device. You will also need an Apple ID [ if you don’t want to use yours, set up a dummy account ] .

Your iOS device is now successfully jailbroken and has Cydia installed. As we said, this is a semi untethered jailbreak and, as such, whenever your device is rebooted, you will need to repeat Step 11 and Step 12 above to put your device back to being jailbroken.
Also, be aware that if you are using a free developer account from Apple, the certificate will expire after 1 week and you must re-jailbreak it again, using the steps from 5 onwards. If you have a paid developer account, this will not happen for 12 months from the date of installation.
