The year 2017 is definitely something to look forward to by Apple device owners as the iOS 10.2 jailbreak is in the works. This according to hacker Stefan Esser. When Lucas Todesco released the Yalu iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak, people were a bit disappointed due to its limitations. It’s only available on the iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone 6s/6s Plus and the iPad Pro. Back in July Beta versions of iOS 10 came out as Apple resorted to an unorthodox technique to know if their opeating system can fend off jailbreaking intents that are tied to TaiG or Pangu.
Semi-Tethered and Stability Issues
People owning older device models weren’t the only ones disappointed. It turns out this jailbreak is semi-tethered, so you need to re-apply the jailbreak every time the device is restarted. Not only that, stability is another thing users need to contend with. Todesco is still doing some fine-tuning with the crack. The hacker wants users to get hold of version 4-1 that carries support for Cydia per blastingnews.com.
Kiddies still bother me regarding the iOS 10.2 jailbreak. That is exactly why the team working on it doesn't disclose this.

Latest Hack Coming Your Way
Unfortunately, this is the best update the Apple Jailbreaking Community has gotten. It’s the first one for the iOS 10 series and users are eager to get one not requiring them to re-jailbreak their phone time after time. Stefan Esser lifted users hopes up when he tweeted that an iOS 10.2 jailbreak might come your way soon. There’s a team working on another crack and people just need to extend their patience a bit more.
If this pushes through, it will be the first time that iOS jailbreaks are released back-to-back. Esser has been in the scene for quite some time now so perhaps there’s a good possibility this will come into fruition. Prior to the Yalu iOS 10.1 jailbreak, the last crack available was iOS 9.3.3 from Pangu, the Chinese hacking group. So here’s hoping a proper working tool would be made available to users very soon. Feel free to send us your thoughts on the issue.
