As promised, well-known hacker and security researcher Luca Todesco has released the iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak beta.
However, before you get excited please note that it is currently meant only for jailbreak developers. Todesco has categorically stated that it is glitchy and very unstable so it is not meant for the general public at the moment. You may end up losing iOS 10.1 or iOS 10.1, and be forced to upgrade to iOS 10.2.
Few days back, Todesco had announced plans to release the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak based on the kernel and root exploit for iOS 10.1.1 published by Ian Beer from Google’s Project Zero team.
Todesco has also mentioned that mobile substrate has been purposely broken so most of the jailbreak tweaks won’t be working. Unlike other jailbreak tools, the beta version isn’t a GUI-based tool, it is available as a Xcode project.
The first beta currently supports iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, 9.7-inch iPad Pro and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Todesco plans to add support for other 64-bit iOS 10.1.1 compatible devices later.
If you’re a jailbreak developer, then you can try the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak by visiting https://yalu.qwertyoruiop.com/. This makes it the first jailbreak to be released for iOS 10 and also iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Todesco has also revealed that the jailbreak is not an untethered jailbreak, which means that you will need to re-jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch if you reboot it.
We would strongly recommend staying away from the jailbreak for now. As we reported a short while back, iOS 10.2 jailbreak may also be released soon. After a relatively long period of lull, it is great to see frantic activity in the jailbreak community.
Kudos to Todesco for releasing the jailbreak even after all the hate he has received from the jailbreak community.
It looks like people had problems with the initial version. Todesco has released the third beta version of iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak.
You should be able to side load the IPA file using Cydia Impactor when it is updated to support it, so won’t need Xcode.
