At long last, after many weeks of waiting, we have an iOS 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 .

Please follow these steps exactly as they are written to ensure success:
- Connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac

- Wait for a few seconds while it does what it needs to and for your device to respring , you should now see Cydia on the home screen
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.

You will also need to use another tool called Cydia Impactor 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 Re-Jailbreak 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 re-jailbreaking Yalu and deleting it if needed.
