The release of iOS 10.2 didn’t come as any surprise given the speed at which Apple is updating iOS 10. However, for some, it signalled nothing more than another delay as we wait for an iOS 10 jailbreak to be released. Indeed, popular developer and hacker Luca Todesco had already told us that iOS 10 was proving to be an incredibly tough nut to crack in terms of jailbreaking down to the sheer number of security patches in each update. That left us believing that we would be waiting for some time before we could get iOS 10.2 jailbreak on our iOS devices again but things have moved pretty quickly since then.

iOS 10.2 Jailbreak :
Somewhat surprisingly, it was Luca Todesco that came through with a jailbreak for us. It’s called Yalu Jailbreak and the reason we are so surprised is because Todesco is not known for providing the public with jailbreak utilities. Usually, he will give us the proof that an iOS version can be jailbroken but will keep the exploits to himself. This time, he seems to have gotten more involved in the public side of jailbreaking, perhaps because of the lack of information from Taig, PP or Pangu jailbreak teams or perhaps because, as he says, this could be the last jailbreak for some time. Whatever the reason, Yalu Jailbreak is here but it does come with some warnings.

- It is a beta jailbreak and is bound to contain bugs and glitches as well as being unstable. Luca Todesco is working on updating it so, if you can wait a little longer it may be best
- It is a semi-untethered jailbreak and this is something we are getting used to having again; it seems that fully untethered jailbreaks are hard to come by now. What this means is, if you reboot your iPhone, iPad of iPod Touch, you are going to have to re-jailbreak your device.
- Yalu cannot be downloaded directly onto you iOS device; it must be side-loaded using Cydia Impactor and a valid Apple ID
- iOS 10.2 is not officially supported but some people have been able to download Yalu successfully onto their iOS 10.2 devices
