Riding on the success of yalu1011 and yalu102, prolific Italian hacker Luca Todesco (aka qwertyoruiop) has just confirmed the release of Safari-based JailbreakMe-style (Jbme102) iOS 10.2 jailbreak following the public release of iOS 10.3 firmware by Apple. The hacker has also confirmed in his recent flurry of tweets that the new jailbreak tool will fix the 7-day signing limitation of Yalu102 jailbreak.

Todesco has also revealed in one of his recent tweets that he was the "mystery man" behind Saurik's now-failed Cydia Extender tool. Although the Cydia Extender tool was originally intended to bring a fix for the 7-day signing limitation with IPA-based semi-tethered jailbreaks when installed via Cydia Impactor, both Luca and Saurik had later grasped that it worked only with paid developer accounts.

It is still unclear as to why Todesco has decidedly chosen to wait for the public release of iOS 10.3, before rolling out Jbme102. However, speculation is rife that he could just be waiting for Apple to reveal all patched exploits in the final version of iOS 10.3.

As far as the exploit used for Jbme102 jailbreak is concerned, the hacker has clarified that it will be based on his coding written for 1day Webkit.

Although Todesco has not given any official word on the type of devices being supported by the upcoming jailbreak, it is almost certain that it will support all 64-bit iOS devices running iOS 10.2 as in the case of Yalu102.
