Luca Todesco has recently released the first public beta version of iOS 10/10.1.1 jailbreak which is based on Ian Beer's Google Project Zero exploit for iPhone 7/7Plus, iPhone 6s/6s Plus and iPad Pro running iOS 10.0.1 through iOS 10.1.1. As this is a semi-untethered jailbreak, you will have to reactivate the jailbreak mode after every reboot which is the only downside with this hack tool.

Interested users with access to supported iOS 10 devices may go ahead and jailbreak their iPhone or iPad, using Yalu jailbreak along with Cydia Impactor.

Step 9: Cydia Impactor will now authenticate the IPA file and install the Yalu jailbreak app on your iPhone or iPad.

Step 10: Wait until the app has successfully installed on your device and then add the new developer profile created with your email address to the Trusted list:

  • Tap Settings > General and select Device Management
  • Choose your email from the Device Management menu and then tap Trust (your email)
  • Hit the Trust button in the ensuing pop-up window

Step 11:Finally, return to the device Home screen and launch the Yalu app. You should now see a white screen displayed for about 15 to 20 seconds.

Step 12: At this moment, your iPhone/iPad should reboot and then Cydia app icon should appear instantly on your device Home screen.

That's it. Your iOS device is now jailbroken on iOS 10/10.1.1 with Cydia installed.

Note: Just remember to relaunch Yalu every time you restart or reboot your device as this is a semi-untethered jailbreak. You should be able to launch Cydia after relaunching Yalu.
