The tool that will function from iOS 10.2.1 up to iOS 10.3 might just be around the corner. As the popular hacking groups TaiG and Pangu are quiet about its status, jailbreak hopefuls are suggesting this could mean they’re already close to rolling out the long-awaited stable jailbreak. Given “surprise” releases already happened in the past, they’re now thinking the upcoming tools might also become available in such manner.
Redmond Pie reports that it’s highly likely that members of prominent jailbreak teams have been sitting quietly on information or exploits that are already usable where iOS 10.2.1 to 10.3.x is concerned but haven’t shared anything in public just yet. It did not detail when it would probably become available. However, the fact that some of their releases in the past came out of nowhere suggest the iOS 10.2 and iOS 10.3 jailbreak tools would arrive at an unprecedented time.
It’s no secret that the jailbreaking scene for iOS has started dying slowly following the release of iOS 10. Apple has patched the loopholes it has found on the iOS 10 very carefully. Well-known hacking groups Pangu and TaiG have seemingly stopped making any significant progress since then while notorious Italian hacker Luca Todesco only managed to get with 10.2 so far.
We can recall he released a jailbreaking tool for 10.2 previously. Unforutunately, it became largely useless after facing a number of problems in the operating system. He promised to publish a stable version of the tool but did not provide a specific release date. This means he himself is uncertain whether the refurbished tool will see the light of day sooner or later.
Unfortunately, there is no proof of a successful jailbreak for iOS 10.2 and beyond at this point, even in private. Then again, it is worth noting that where the jailbreak community is concerned, we literally never know what’s around the corner. We can only keep our fingers crossed and play the patience card until a legitimate update comes.
In the meantime, those who’re waiting for the jailbreak tool can get some reprieve with an app called zJailbreak. Offering an easy way to get free apps, it can be installed by just visiting its official site. Simply look for the “install now” button and the app should install if your device is compatible. Most Apple devices are compatible, save for the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
Any thoughts? Do you think we’ll ever get a iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool? Sound off in the comments section below!
