At long last, after many weeks of waiting, we have an iOS jailbreak. It is called Yalu Jailbreak and it was released by Luca Todesco, the Italian hacker and developer that we have all come to know. TweakBox is a good replacement of Yalu. 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 .

Before You Jailbreak :

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.

How to Jailbreak using Yalu :

Please follow these steps exactly as they are written to ensure success:

  1. Connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac
  2. Backup your data through iTunes and iCloud [ this is important , if anything goes wrong with the jailbreak you will need to restore and will lose all your data and files ]  
  3. Disable your passcode and Touch ID if applicable – go to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode 
  4. Disable Find my iPhone | iPad , go to Settings > iCloud > Find my iPhone | iPad 
  5. Download Yalu IPA File onto your computer and remember where you save it to
  6. Download Cydia Impactor [ext link] onto your computer and open it 
  7. Locate the .ipa file for Yalu and drag it into Cydia Impactor 
  8. Input your Apple credentials when asked to do so 
  9. Wait for Cydia impactor to side load the Yalu Jailbreak onto your iOS device
  10. When the installation is complete, unplug your device and open Settings > General > Profile & Device Management and locate the Yalu certificate then click on Trust beside it 
  11. Go to your home screen and launch the jailbreak , it will be called mach_portal 
  12. 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.

Important Links :

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.

Hi, everywhere I go it says iOS 10.2 can be jailbroken, but is unstable, but every time I try to find the ipa links, it redirects me to other places telling me about the spa, but I can not find an actual link to the Yalu 10.2 jailbreak. Is there anyone who can help me out? I have a youtube channel, and I want to be able to let my viewers know whether there is a jailbreak or not, no matter how unstable it is. I just need a direct link to the Yalu IPA 🙂

    Thank You All!

  14. I own an iPhone 5s which is on the version 10.1.1. I recently used the Yalu Beta 7 to jailbreak which indeed was a success. But the problem is that the proximity sensors aren’t working, the option to “reset” is not working and the call quality has also considerably reduced. Any workarounds for the same. Is this due to an incompatible tweak or is it a bug in the jailbreak causing this ? Any help/workaround would be gladly appreciated .

  15. When i try to drag the yalu file into the impactor is gives me this error,
    Please sign in with an app-specific password. You can create one at
    But my information is correct, i double checked and have tried multiple times it doesnt work.

    1. There isn’t one yet they say it’s for developers only but they have only made concepts and aren’t on the iOS they show in videos. There isn’t a public jailbreak yet.

  16. hi i am using iphone 6 is it possible can i install jailbreak or Cydia on my device please need to help me if some one can help me kindly help or e.mail me me thanks.

    1. You can use pangu’s jailbreak tool. You download it on ur computer and plug your device in and click jailbreak. It is a full jailbreak.

      1. Dont be an idiot and waste people’s time! Jerk! Tell how you did it and we will praise you for the jailbreak

  17. Jailbreak only works only on: max iOS 10.2 – up to 6S/6S Plus, max iOS 10.1.1 – iPhone 7/7 Plus. Estimated time for 10.3.1+ is August-September. Just wait.

  18. Hello guys, I am going crazy to realise jailbreak for my iPad 10.3.2…
    What it’s better try with 11 beta o wait to 10.3.2?


  19. These posts claim to have a new jailbreak, in this case for IOS 10.3.2, but when trying to download the ipa file all higher version ones are not available, they are listed as being either only for developers or under development.

  20. Please Yalu team told us when to expect a jailbreak about 10.2-10.3.3? Whitout jailbreak my iphone is a for a trash…

  21. Im going to test this method on my iPhone 5s running iOS 11.0 beta 5. If it works that’s great if not then I’ll try to rewrite some code and reconfigure to get it to work.

  22. seriously, what is more annoying than people asking for jailbreaks and moan when they haven’t got it, is it so surprising that pangu, taig and other teams don’t want to release a jailbreak because everyone moans and then moans that it’s f@*ked up your phones when you do actually get a jailbreak because you haven’t a frigging clue what you are doing. Get a f@*kin grip and wait impatient c@*ts

  23. You told me that the jailbreak was possible for an iPad Air 2 running on IOS 11.0.3 but I also have the white screen when opening the mach_portal app. Can you please help???????!!!!!!! Thanks in advance

  24. Hey Yalu Team, thnx for your great work!
    Is there an oversight how to JB iPhones models, with iOs versions installed on it, with which tool to JB? Its all looks soo confusing to me. Yalu ist working only for one week…
    i’m using iPhone 5s with iOs 10.3.2 /14F89) and i beware of scammers… It’s not easy.
