When Yalu Jailbreak was first released for iOS 10.1, it was limited to those with the 64-bit devices only and was welcomed by them as being the only jailbreak to come about for iOS 10. It was subsequently updated to support latest iOS versions but, we have now learned, as the developer, Luca Todesco, is stepping back from security work on the iOS firmware, Yalu will not be updated any further, leaving users who update in the future without a jailbreak to fall back on. While it is a very welcome jailbreak, some users are reporting that their devices are randomly rebooting, for no apparent reason.

The problem seems to be more prevalent on these devices :
- iPad Mini 4
- iPad Air 2
- iPhone 7/7 Plus
However, it is affecting other devices to a smaller extent and we’re going to show you how to fix it. Through this tutorial, you will remove the following form your iPhone or iPad :
- Archive files that are old and no longer needed
- Packages that have become corrupted
Because the Yalu jailbreak is in permanent beta and is now not going to be updated any further, this is the only way to fix this problem so here goes.
You will need:
- An iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running the Yalu jailbreak
- Cydia tweak by the name of MTerminal – this is a terminal emulator tweak. If you don’t have it, download it from Cydia [ext link] before you go any further
How to Fix Random Reboots on Yalu Jailbreak :
- On your iOS device, open MTerminal
- Type in these commands :
“alpine” is the default root password so, if you have changed it, make sure you type in the new password instead.
- Now enter this command:
If you receive a prompt asking you to continue, type y and then press on Enter
- Now type this command in:
- Now you can close down MTerminal
These few steps should fix the problem because your iOS device has been properly cleaned up of corrupted packages and unwanted archive files. Yalu jailbreak should now be stable and should no longer reboot randomly.
